North Korea’s little dictator Kim Jong-un has issued one too many threats to America, tested too many bombs, and tried to grandstand the world’s most prepared military that they don’t stand a chance against. The writing has been on the wall for weeks, that they were going to get what they had coming for years if they didn’t back down. Instead of heeding the warnings at their doorstep, their ridiculous leader decided to increase his show of force and it just backfired on him big time.
The only thing that Kim Jong-un is good as is pretending to be powerful. Although he has control over those in his country, his tactics don’t work on the rest of the world — especially America now run by President Donald Trump. Kim Jong likes to talk a tough game and line his army up and parade them around to intimidate people but probably should have kept his soldiers and weaponry under wraps. Showcasing what he’s working with proved to be a bad idea when keen eyes happened to notice something on closer look.
If you’re going to taunt the Goliath that is America, you better come to the fight prepared. It appears that North Korea is very far from that when a U.S. intelligence officer saw what they were carrying and wearing in an April 15 military parade aimed at showing force.
“Michael Pregent believes many of the arms flaunted by menacing-looking North Korean troops during their displays are dummies, and claims even their sunglasses wouldn’t be fit for combat,” the Daily Mail reports. In what Kim Jong hoped would make America back down, only worked against him in this ridiculous parade after it became clear that they were carrying fake weapons that don’t stand a chance to our military’s very real weapons.
“He suggested many of the guns were not real and hinted many may have even been given toys, in a move designed to boast their strength to the world,” Mail Online’s report added. “This was more about sending a message than being combat effective,” Pregent told Fox News.
Essentially, what these soldiers are carrying around is nothing more than a glorified Nerf gun, from what it looks like and their eye protection were cheaply made sunglasses you could probably get from any corner store for a few bucks. “Soldiers in Western countries use specially tailored ‘ballistic safety glasses’ that wrap around the head, Pregent explained.
If this is what they plan to bring to a seemingly inevitable fight, they better prepare to get wiped out since fake munitions aren’t what you want to bring to a fight with America’s military. “Pregent says that these ‘weapons’ are ‘laughable’ because ‘you can see the plastic is over the muzzle,” according to the Daily Mail.
“Images from the parade show what appear to be North Korean ‘commandos’ carrying AK-47 assault rifles with attached grenade-launchers,” Daily Mail reports. “But Pregent says that the objects seen affixed to the rifles are really ‘helical’ magazines designed to store bullets in a spiral shape.” The intelligence official added that not only are the weapons likely fake but even if they were real they would be ineffective since North Korea has a “serious shortages of domestically produced ammunition.”
The weapons expert admits that North Korea does likely have RPG capabilities but used these toys for the parade for a rather alarming reason. Kim Jong-un “doesn’t want them to launch one at the viewing stand,” Pregent explained, which seems to be to say that the soldiers aren’t well trained with weapons. This could also work against them should they be forced into war that they’re not ready for. They can only talk the talk and parade a perfect march before they have to prove they are as tough as they like to pretend to be.
As America closes in on North Korea they better be ready for a fight that they don’t stand a chance to win, which will probably be the most demoralizing loss in world history. After all this pomp and circumstance, talk, and bomb testing, Kim Jong-un and his toy soldiers are going to look ridiculous when things go to blows and they get blasted back to the stone age where they seem to be operating from.
