Yesterday Kim Jon-Un unveiled his weapons arsenal to the entire world. The parade happened in North Korea’s capital Pyongyang to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the birth of their nation’s founder Kim Il-Sung. However, when the camera’s zoomed in on the news weapons, everyone noticed something was off.
There is now speculation that Kim Jong-Un’s weapons are not exactly airworthy. For weeks, the chubby dictator has been saying that his new arsenal should make the world very afraid. Of course, everyone did take him seriously, after all when a crazed dictator is boasting about nuclear weapons you take notice.
So, yesterday Jong-Un held a massive parade and attempted to launch a missile which thankfully failed.

Well, could this launch have failed because his missiles were fake? Well, take a look at these images and let us know what you think.
Many people who saw this image immediately noticed that the nose looked slightly bent. At first, I did not notice it but from a different angle it certainly seemed off to me. Check it out here.
But, I am not the only one who noticed these images to be slightly off. I will be the first to admit I am no weapons expert, but these shapes seem strange to me too.
You can watch the video here.
According to Daily Mail:
Foreign journalists covering the celebrations of The Day of Sun in North Korea were heavily guarded and their output was controlled by the state.
Each reporter was assigned a military or government guard, which meant the coverage was set up in a way Kim Jong-Un had signed off.
But as the BBC’s John Sudworth delivered his piece to camera, a procession of vehicles carrying missiles passed behind him.
On one of the trucks, a rocket appears with a nose piece that is pointing skywards, which led to speculation the weapon was a fake.
However, Sudworth was not the only one who was verbal about North Korea’s new weapons. Chad O’Carroll, who is the managing director of NK News also expressed doubts. O’Carroll began to question after seeing the nose of one the missiles beginning to “wobble quite noticeably”.
However, while we may all be giddy that these weapons are possibly fake and the weapons test failed, we should stay on guard.
Sir Malcolm Rifkind, who served as foreign secretary in England from 1995 to 1997 issued this warning.
“But don’t get too excited by that, they’ve also had quite a lot of successful tests.
“They are an advanced country when it comes to their nuclear weapons program. That still remains a fact – a hard fact.”
So, this makes me wonder even more. If these weapons are indeed fake what does Kim Jong-Un have in his arsenal? This mad is drunk with power and wants nothing more than to prove to the world he is a threat. Could these have been a diversion and the real weapons are elsewhere?
At this point, any of it is possible. The good news is that the United States and its allies are closely monitoring North Korea to ensure that the world stays out of war. Let us know what you think about these weapons in the comments below.
Are they real or are they fake?
