North Korea Shows Off Its Military Might Ahead of the Winter Olympics

Don’t you just hate when your neighbor tries to outdo you by throwing a party when they know you’ve been planning one for ages? North Korea threatened to overshadow Thursday’s soft launch of the Winter Olympics in South Korea by holding a big military parade. State television showed Kim Jong Un and his wife overlooking hundreds of troops alongside tanks and missiles, CNN reported. But, in friendlier news, it’s also been reported that the North Korean delegation at the Olympics, including Kim Jong Un's sister, is scheduled to meet the South Korean president—Moon Jae-in—for lunch during the Games.
