North Koreans spell out ‘defend with your life’ in massive parade rehearsal before Biden’s inauguration, pics show


INCREDIBLE satellite images have emerged which appear to show thousands of people in North Korea who have been marshalled to spell out “defend with your life”.

Brain-washed citizens of Kim Jong-un’s totalitarian regimes were rehearsing for a massive parade rehearsal just days before president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The satellite imagery reveals thousands of people at Kim Il Sung Square in North Korea’s capital of Pyongyang on Saturday morning apparently practicing for an upcoming event. 

It is thought they were rehearsing for a parade that is expected to take place around the Eighth Congress of the ruling Communist party in January. 

They are arranged to spell out “결사옹위”, which translates to “defend with your life” in English.  

Martyn Williams, from the North Korea analysis site 38 North said: “Political messages displayed with the kind of red placards seen in today’s image are common during this kind of event and require practice to perfect timing and accuracy.”

Meanwhile, the US Air Force’s RC-135W Rivet Joint was detected by an avian tracker near North Korea yesterday as the US military stepped up its monitoring of the secretive Communist state as Biden prepares to move into the White House.

‘US PLANES SPY ON KIM’S KINGDOM’

A South Korean military official told Yonhap news agency: “The US is paying close attention to North Korea’s movements, including preparations for a (possible) military parade for the 8th Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea in January.

“The US military will likely conduct more frequent surveillance flights around the date of the congress.”

The rehearsal and the expected parade in January will coincide with the inauguration of Biden, who Kim once called the President-elect a “rabid dog”.

Experts fear the dictator is primed to test Biden with a barrage of nuclear missile test launches timed for when the new president takes office.

Evans Revere, of the Council on Foreign Relations, Time.com the shock move would be a way of  “laying down a marker with the new president and increasing its negotiating leverage with Washington.”

The former State Department official added Biden will be quick to learn from his predecessor’s mistakes.

Mr Revere said: “The Biden team will be mindful of the failings of Trump’s approach, which has amounted to turning a blind eye to North Korea’s steady accumulation of nuclear weapons and testing of medium-range missiles.”

Kim has a history of trying his luck with new presidents and reports from the region say he is “very unhappy” Trump has been toppled.

“North Korea has historically ramped up tensions early in a new U.S. and South Korean administration to, in the words of a North Korean defector, ‘train them like a dog’ and induce concessions,” said Bruce Klingner, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation told the Washington Post.

John Delury, a professor at Yonsei University in Seoul, said talks are now probably already underway in Pyongyang between those who want to give Biden time and those who will be impatient to launch a missile “to get ourselves on the radar”.

After Barack Obama won his first term as US President the North Korean military launched a ballistic missile over the Sea of Japan.

The regime did the same on the 23rd day of Donald Trump‘s presidency.

Trump later claimed to have formed a “special friendship” with Kim, but there is no certainly no love lost between Biden and North Korea’s dictator.

The regime’s state broadcaster once called him a “rabid dog” who should be “beaten to death with a stick”.

KCNA said: “Rabid dogs like Biden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about.

“They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late.”

Regional security experts say the rogue state is constructing two deadly underwater war machines – including one which can fire long-range nukes.

And in October, Kim’s military paraded the world’s largest mobile nuke which can wipe out any US city and kill at least 1.5million people in seconds.
