North Korea on Saturday showed off what it said were
long-range ballistic missiles carrying miniaturised nuclear
warheads, its latest claim to the sophisticated technology
which state television said could destroy enemies in a
"sea of fire".

Rows of the intercontinental ballistic missiles known as
KN-08, which some think could fly far enough to reach
the continental US, were paraded through the capital as
part of a massive military parade marking the 70th
anniversary of the ruling Workers Party.

“With the vengeful desire to turn the citadel of our
enemies into a sea of fire, our powerful tactical rockets
loaded with diversified and miniaturized nuclear warheads
are on the move,” the commentator said, as rows of
missiles were shown on screen.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un yesterday told crowds
assembled for the parade that the country’s armed forces
“are capable of fighting any kind of war provoked by the US
and we are ready to protect our people
and the blue sky of our motherland.”
Korea Defense Network analyst Lee Il-woo said the new
version of the KN-08
— which has an estimated range of up to 12,000km —
had a more rounded end than the version unveiled in 2012.

Analysts and U.S. officials have said previously that they
suspected Kim Jong Un's regime was working toward
accomplishing the technical feat, which is needed to fit a
nuclear device on the tip of a ballistic missile.
U.S. expresses doubt
But on Wednesday, the official U.S. response was skepticism.

"Our assessment of North Korea's nuclear capabilities has not
changed," National Security Council spokesman Patrick Ventrell
said in a statement.
"We do not think that they have that capacity."

"However, they are working on developing a number of long
range missiles, including intercontinental ballistic missiles,
that could eventually threaten our allies and the homeland,"

Seems lil' Kim has upped the ante , showing off these modified long
range missiles .Do they have miniature nuclear warheads , or are
these just a mock-up .?
He seems determined to achieve the ire of the rest of the world ,
... and for what end?
How long will it take for the Chinese to intervene, after all, they
live next door and 'fat boy' is getting sillier everyday.
Or is this a distraction from their shenanigans in the South China Sea ?

"We do not think that they have that capacity."



Well, I for one do not want to test that statement. Those look the part and why spend so much on the transport vehicles if the missiles are duds.

We have to understand that the US (with a lot of help) cracked the atomic bomb back in the 1940s. Hell, no plans, no calculators let alone computers. No help from friends, not even hints.

NK has it quite easy. It only takes a few bright people and the side we don't see of the culture is the number of students attending overseas universities in Europe getting the finest education.

Of course they can do this by now. They have thrown a ton of resources at this problem.

Lastly, the press release is a translation and the translation itself has a purpose. I would like to see the original but ... I don't speak Korean.

Unless NK can be exploited economically, nothing happens to NK until some form disaster happens.

He is working toward destroying himself though.

Kim did not mention the country's nuclear weapons
but instead used terminology like "defense-economic
policies," perhaps mindful of significant opposition from
vital ally China to the North's nuclear weapons development.

Liu Yunshan, a ranking member of the Chinese Politburo’s
Standing Committee, stood close by. In a meeting with Kim
the previous day, Liu called for a "continuation of traditional
friendship," an expression Beijing has avoided using for a while,
hinting at the possibility of improved relations.

Did some more looking , and it seems the Chinese are taking
a more active role in de-activating the 'boy wonder' .... Good!

Isn't this rather like the rejected lover, who after being ignored, shouts about how good they made you feel?
Continuing the analogy his next words would be "nobody will make you feel this way".
The world has moved on, and North Korea has become a small and insignificant part of the world stage.

How unusual, it was on Saturday. NK usually threatens to destroy America on Thursdays (Monday is asking America for aid day). I fear fat boy is changing things too much, how long will the rest of the regime put up with this change I aks you?

a very low profile .

North Korea Vows to Cripple the U.S. with Fake Missiles

I just found this article from 2012, that has the exact same picture. This is what they had to say about them them.


Today, The Associated Press' Eric Talmadge surveys analysts who studied photos of the missiles North Korea trotted out at its recent military parade. At first blush, the missiles appeared to be new and capable of long-range attacks, but after a closer inspection, analysts doubt the missiles could even get off the ground. "The weapons displayed April 15 appear to be a mishmash of liquid-fuel and solid-fuel components that could never fly together," writes the news agency. "The metal is too thin to withstand flight. Each missile was slightly different from the others, even though all were supposedly the same make. They don't even fit the launchers they were carried on." Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker at Germany's Schmucker Technologies say "There is no doubt that these missiles were mock-ups." David Wright, a physicist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, says the missiles are actually "clumsy representations of a missile that is being developed."


Unless China is providing the weapon and/or missiles, it ain't haappenin". Lil' Kim has always bragged about his ability to destroy the West, but their version of advancements in technology, is a new coat of paint.

That's the biggest Dong I've seen. Not sure about the head though, Kimmy like to bluff a lot. It probably is all paper mache.

Give over Kim.In the event of a world war, NK would be nothing more than a little irritant.They'd be wiped out in minutes.

"Why spend money on transport for duds?"

Seriously? Because it's North Korea. They would happily spend money on trucks to transport duds if it gave them a chance to say it was long range nukes.

I hope these are all old pics used. The ones shown cannot be "long ranged: anything. Too small and not enough stages.More like just slightly more than tactical battlefield.Almost like something that you would fire from a Nerf gun.And , no , those are not warheads. You could not transport them in public without some radiation poisoning of the populace.The warheads are in sealed chambers where you have to wear rad suits when there.

That is the problem i see, only 1 main stage, then if it is even real, warhead.

I just edited my previous post. No , the missiles with warheads even in the silos are sealed and you have to wear rad suits andd badges to even go in the silos...not to be paraded in public. Unless you want to take a chance on the tumor and cancer rate escalating in the populace.

You think Kim would not parade real warheads out of radiation concerns for his People? Somehow i doubt he cares in the least.

I refuse to scoff at North Korea. They are not the joke we have been led to believe. They are a tool that is intended to be used when the timing is right. They are like the little thug in our older cartoons, just slavering for his chance stating "can I get 'em now boss?", while being held back by their masters. The masters have surreptitiously aided their little sidekick to get them to where they are now, including the miniaturized warheads they needed.

All we are lacking now is for N.K to be released by their masters to attempt their cowardly attack. It will be a sneak attack, with little warning, due to our complacency over their incessant saber rattling. All of this is intentional. This is what gives little Kimmy so much confidence. He has his back covered by his masters, so he thinks. He will be cast aside by them after he makes his attack to deflect our anger from the true source of the attack. We will destroy him in the process.

The sad part is that it will happen soon and no one with the power to stop it will be able to act fast enough once they realize what has happened. We will be hit. We will retaliate. We will survive. We will also see through this ruse and strike back at the sources.
