Who will protect Kim Jong-un if Trump attacks
The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last Saturday showed his special forces for the first time: a military parade was held in Pyongyang - obviously, to show military power in spite of the US President Donald Trump.
Terrible and well-trained troops shouted patriotic slogans, marching with guns and grenade launchers at the ready. It is believed that this first-class special forces are armed much better than the rest of the troops in North Korea: they are wearing night-vision goggles and helmets with pistols attached to their chests.
“As soon as Supreme Commander Kim Jong-un gives the order, they will forcefully put the sword into the heart of the enemy at the speed of lightning striking at Pektusan (the highest peak in the country. - Ed.), Said the leading North Korean television commenting on the parade.
The event was timed to the Day of the Sun - a public holiday in North Korea. The parade was held against the backdrop of heightened tensions with the United States and President Donald Trump,who, in a recent statement, did not rule out the possibility of a warning strike if Kim Jong-un was using the button in his nuclear briefcase.
According to an analyst who was quoted by the North Korean state news agency Yonhap, North Korean special forces are on alert to defend the country against the elite US forces, who work off the overthrow of Kim Jong-un in the event of a war.
The American television station CNN reports that, according to the Pentagon report, it is one of the most trained, equipped, well-fed and motivated troops in the North Korean army. The classified units, which periodically carry out various missions under cover in South Korea, are designed for rapid attacks and protection against attacks from abroad, the Pentagon report says.
The document also states that North Korean special forces operate specialized units, which include reconnaissance, airborne and naval landing, sabotage and reconnaissance groups, and other specializations. The Pentagon suggests that North Korea is developing long-range missiles with nuclear warheads that could pose a direct threat to the United States.
During the Saturday parade in honor of the 105th birthday of North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung, his grandson Kim Jong-un also demonstrated “innovative” ballistic missiles, which, according to Pyongyang, are capable of covering distances of thousands of kilometers.
North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missiles have aroused the fears of the international community that this closed state is preparing an attack on Washington. Kim Jong-un has said that they are deployed for the sake of a warning strike in case the United States attacks his country. Two new types of missiles were installed in launch containers on trucks and shown in the parade.
Pyongyang has not yet officially announced that the DPRK has a functioning system of intercontinental ballistic missiles, but experts believe that the missiles presented at the parade may be intercontinental ballistic missiles on liquid fuel or their early version.
The parade also showed for the first time ballistic missiles of an underwater launch, which indicates an improvement in technological capabilities and the likelihood that North Korean missiles will be able to bypass air defense systems.
Shining Kim Jong-un in a suit of western cut was looking at the spectators and the troops from the tribune. The soldiers shouted patriotic slogans, and the leader saluted them in response.
Kim Jong-un has accused Donald Trump of provoking his people with his increasingly aggressive actions, including sending the US Navy ship Carl Vinson to the Korean Peninsula.
