North Korea flaunts long-range missiles in massive parade

A USA military official, who requested anonymity to discuss planning, said the United States doesn't intend to use military force against North Korea in response to either a nuclear test or a missile launch. An official from South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm whether any of the rockets represented a new type of ICBM. The missiles use solid fuel, making them easier to load and harder to detect than liquid fuel rockets.

The portraits of late leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il are seen lit at dawn at Kim Il Sung Square on Saturday, April 15, 2017, in Pyongyang, North Korea.

Choe Ryong Hae, who some say is the second-most powerful official in North Korea, said in a speech that the country is ready to stand up to any threat posed by the United States.

He criticised President Trump for "creating a war situation" on the Korean Peninsula by dispatching strategic military assets to the region.

If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with annihilating strike, and we will respond to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike warfare.

Other senior officials joining Kim at the parade podium included Kim Won Hong, who the South Korean government had said earlier this year was sacked from his job as state security minister, presumably over corruption.

A huge truck carrying the missile-shaped objective rolled through the main square of the capital in front of leader Kim Jong-un and other top officials of the communist regime, showed TV footage. The country under his watch has been aggressively pursuing a goal of putting a nuclear warhead on an ICBM capable of reaching the continental United States.

In an editorial, China's Global Times newspaper said North Korea likely felt the shockwaves from the 11-ton "mother of all bombs" that the United States dropped in Afghanistan on Thursday.

As NPR's Merrit Kennedy reported earlier this week, the regime said it would "hold the USA wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions".

North Korea's weapons of war rolled through Pyongyang streets Saturday and it promised "nuclear justice" in response to any atomic attack as leader Kim Jong-Un mounted a spectacular show of strength. There are, however, concerns that the nation is possibly preparing for its sixth nuclear test or a missile launch soon.

The aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson and an accompanying battle group have also been sent to the Korean peninsula.

North Korea showed off what appeared to a series of new missiles and launchers at its huge annual military parade in a clear message that it is ready to defend itself as a nuclear-powered US aircraft carrier approached the region.

North Korea warned the United States on Saturday to end its "military hysteria" or face retaliation as a U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region and the reclusive state marked the "Day of the Sun", the 105th birth anniversary of its founding father.

The North's Korean People's Army (KPA) added its voice to the bellicose rhetoric yesterday with a statement threatening strikes against USA military bases and other targets in South Korea.
