North Korea – April 17, 2017

April 17, 2017 – North Korea hosts a massive military parade to celebrate “The Day of the Sun” which commemorates the birthday of Kim Il-Sung – North Korea’s founder and former president. The parade left observers in the West unsettled after the North Korean’s showed off their new ICBMs that have a capability of traveling much farther than standard missiles and could potentially pose a threat to the US in the future as Pyongyang continues to improve their weapons technology. Aside from the ICBMs, the DPRK also showed off its rockets, artillery, tanks, ballistic missiles, and other armor.
