Were Kim Jong-Un’s missiles FAKE?
Critics claim ‘wonky’ rockets put on display ahead of failed test launch were not real weapons
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.
North Korea unveiled new weapons during a display of the country’s military might in the country’s capital Pyongyang to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the birth of the nation’s founder Kim Il-Sung.
But 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.
