North Korea Fills Pyongyang Square for Anti-America Rally
The communist government of North Korea touted an apparently thousands-strong rally in the heart of Pyongyang—Kim Il-sung Square—Wednesday in response to President Donald Trump’s warning that any attack on U.S. soil would be met with unprecedented “fire and fury.”
The North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun published images of a completely full Kim Il-sung Square—North Korea mandates attendance at government rallies—decorated with banners showing North Korean soldiers and communist slogans. According to the newspaper, the “mass rally” was convened “to fully support the statement of the DPRK government” against the United States.
The article also quoted highlights from a speech reportedly delivered by senior Korean Workers’ Party member Kim Ki Nam, who told the crowd:
The U.S., the most shameless gangster-like state, framed up the “sanctions resolution” with dastards acting as voting machine without any principle. This is no more than desperate efforts of those frightened at the might of the DPRK which rose to the high strategic position as a nuclear power of Juche and world-level military power
