North Korea showed off a wide range of ballistic missiles including the KN-15, KN-11, the Musudan missile and a few new unidentified North Korean missiles. North Korean special forces fitted with night vision goggles and grenade launchers were shown off in the parade as well. Check out the extravagant display

The drums of war are sounding loud and clear, the loudest and clearest in over 60-years in the Pacific Ocean. North Korea has systematically defied every warning, every exhortation, every attempt, subtle and not-so-subtle regarding their long range weapons and nuclear ambitions. Every attempt seems to have been made to persuade them to give up their ludicrous intentions on building something that would only bring about their demise, along with the demise of countless North Korean citizens. In any case, in every war, numbers and comparison matter. Because of that, here is a look at both countries, the U.S. and North Korea, in terms of numbers. Of course, the times when wars were
