This weekend, the North Korean government held rallies across the country to commemorate the 73rd year since the start of the Korean War.
Hundreds of thousands of people celebrated what they perceived to be North Korea’s victory in the war, with 120,000 people attending the celebration in the capital city of Pyongyang alone.
Government speakers made threatening statements against the United States and called the United States government ‘imperialist beasts’ during the celebrations.
North Koreans boasted that the country possesses Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM’s) that are within firing range of the United States, with one sign reading “The entire continental US is within our range!”
While former President Donald Trump attempted to engage in disarmament talks with North Korea, they were unsuccessful and Biden has not made any significant attempts to continue them.
Government officials bragged that North Korea has “firmly grasped the strongest absolute weapon to punish the U.S. imperialists,”
North Koreans shouted slogans expressing their desire for a “war of revenge” against the United States.
Meanwhile, government leaders promised to “annihilate the enemy” during the vengeful rally.
One South Korean defector who is now an activist who opposes the North Korean government sent hundreds of thousands of leaflets and Covid-19 medical supplies across the border, something that has previously angered the North Korean government.
United States and South Korean government leaders have frequently criticized the North Korean government for reaching revisionist history about the Korean War.
