North Korea missiles: Papier-mâché and wood?

Propaganda and North Korea go together like the US Marine Corps and Oh-No-You-Di’unt.

Perhaps best exemplifying such would be the recent military parade through the nation’s capital city of Pyongyang to celebrate the 105th birthday of the nation’s founder (and Kim Jong-un’s granddaddy) Kim Il-Sung. Or as it’s officially known in the Worker’s Paradise that is North Korea: The Day of the Sun.

While the individual derisively tagged “Lil’ Kim” and a “crazy fat kid” by more than a few in the West, possibly could be also named “Kim the Tool Man Taylor.”

As (partially) reported by Great Britain’s The Daily Mail;

Speculation is circulating that Kim Jong-Un dressed up empty, painted boxes as deadly weapons of mass destruction as part of his military parade this weekend.

People have started questioning the validity of the rockets, including one which appears either broken or very badly made with its nose pointing skyward.

One Twitter user said: ‘Does North Korea think they are fooling anyone with all those fake missiles on parade?’

Another poked fun at the nation’s military saying the missiles looked like they had been made from papier-mâché.

Nevertheless, the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which Pyongyang claim could travel thousands of miles, have increased concerns that the secretive state is preparing for a possible attack on Washington after they were paraded during the country’s Day of the Sun celebrations.
