Kim Jong-il likely to inspect biggest North Korea military parade in history
Troops, armored vehicles, missiles and other hardware have been amassed at Mirim Airbase in North Korea's capital since July 12, 2010, and the rehearsals have involved up to 10,000 soldiers. Kim Jong-il, the Dear Leader himself, is said to be on the hook to inspect the parade.
So, what will be on display? Look for movable missile launch pads, which will probably be used to showcase a variety of missiles under the regime's control. Further details are being kept quiet.
One defector told Yonhap, "Given the scale of the event this time, however, chances are high that it will be arranged by the National Defense Commission and attended by Kim Jong-il."
