Kim Jong Un Shows Off Shiny New Nuke

( – North Korean Dictator Kim Jung-un unveiled the latest set of nuclear missiles in a military parade in the country’s capital city of Pyongyang.

The newest nuclear missiles, as well as four new military drones were put on display in the parade, being towed through the city square. In addition to standing with the typical array of North Korean military officials, Russian and Chinese officials were also in attendance. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) member Li Hongzhong were both seen at the ceremony talking and laughing with the North Korean dictator.

The parade marked the 70th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War armistice, known as “Victory Day” in North Korea. The armistice marked a perpetual truce — but not an end to the war. An effort to formally end the war is still ongoing. Negotiations between North and South Korea have typically failed.

North Korea’s continued flaunting of its nuclear capabilities is designed to be a warning to Western countries, particularly the United States, in response to a U.S. nuclear ballistic missile submarine that recently moved into the region. The nuclear missiles featured in the parade are believed to be North Korea’s Hwasong-17 and Hwasong-18 intercontinental ballistic missiles. It is now believed that these missiles are capable of striking a target anywhere in the U.S. mainland.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the state-controlled media outlet in the country, also broadcasted the military’s new drones flying overhead in an effort to project strength and power. The new drones could be used to better detect military targets, as well as provide a better situational awareness for the North Korean military as a whole.

The parade also saw a speech delivered by North Korean Defense Minister Kang Sum Nam, who openly accused the U.S. and its allies of increasing tension. The increase in tension, as supposedly instigated by the U.S., is in response to an American nuclear-capable ballistic missile submarine docking in South Korea. This is the first time American nuclear weapons have been deployed this close to North Korea in 40 years.
