North Korea is holding a huge military parade
« on: September 08, 2018, 09:37:52 PM »
To mark the country's 70th anniversary - but has refrained from showing intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Too militaristic a display could risk upsetting the diplomatic dalliance on the peninsula, after Kim’s Singapore meeting with US President Donald Trump in June and his third summit with the South’s President Moon Jae-in due in Pyongyang later this month.

 ‘Slap in the face’

“If they show off ICBMs it will be a massive provocation and it will be a slap in the face for the United States,” said Andrei Lankov of Korea Risk Group.

Troops, artillery and tanks have made their way past leader Kim Jong Un in the centre of Pyongyang, but the largest missiles shown were short-range battlefield devices, according to reports.

I hold little hope that North Korea will get rid of their nukes however this looks like Kim takes Trump seriously.

Good point Boo. Kim will not get rid of his nukes. However, he is scared s---less that Trump will kick his ass if he gets out of line.

If anything, it's a reversal gesture from, 70 years of "in your face, to SK and the West".
No doubt Trump has made an impression on both NK and China, something I would never have expected. :thumbup:
