North Korea surprises with display of new missiles

North Korea put its adversaries on notice Saturday, when it showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at its annual military parade.

Pyongyang showed off two new intercontinental ballistic missile-sized canisters as well as displaying its submarine-launched ballistic missile and a land-based version of the same for the first time, according to analysts.

If North Korea has ICBMs, it could give it the ability to strike targets in the mainland US and Europe. The shorter range ballistic missiles displayed Saturday, meanwhile, are a threat to countries in the Asian region.


North Korea's display comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels.

2. I'm not surprised. It was a "family holiday" and Trump provoked Pyongyang.

6. I said the same this morning

It's not hard to build empty housings then parade them for dear leader.
