North Korea parades military might and warns US amid fears of nuclear test

North Korea has held a vast military parade to celebrate the birth of its founding father, Kim Il-sung, and warned that it was prepared to take the “toughest” action unless the US ended its “military hysteria”, as speculation grows that the regime is preparing to conduct a nuclear test.

On a sunny Saturday morning in the capital, Pyongyang, military vehicles and tens of thousands of soldiers filled Kim Il-sung square as a band played rousing military music, the instruments falling silent for oaths of loyalty to the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un.

    Just one MOAB……just one is all it would take at that clambake the Norks are having.

    Is that too much to ask Heavenly Father?

    Apropos of nothing I just noticed that Pope Fwancis is a doppelgänger for Fred Gwynn. It’s uncanny.

    Popemobile 54 where are you?

      Or Francis the Talking Mule.

    • If Thae Yong-Ho is right, this may not be needed.

      This sort of parade is smoke and mirrors.

      It’s time for a coup.

  • How the hell does a clusterfuck like North Korea manage to exist?

    The epitome of unaccountable government. Even term limits to one generation would be a step forward.

    And then everyone had some grass soup to celebrate!

    Nononono…..Francis the mule had waaaay longer ears than Pope Dope.

    That’s how you can tell them apart……at least that’s how I do.

    The North Koreans have been blustering for years. It takes someone like Trump to call their bluff.
