North Korea’s situation with its southern neighbors is one of “permanent war”, as the leaders of the Asian country have defined on several occasions. Pyongyang’s government believes that the United States controls the neighboring country, so the demonstrations of force towards both states have been continuous in recent years.
From the launching of missiles to leaks of nuclear projects, the North Korean Executive has tried to make it clear to the world that despite the isolation, the country is prepared to enter combat.
Among the latest demonstrations of force by the totalitarian regime is the propaganda video released by North Korean television that reflects the training of its troops.
The soldiers, under the watchful eye of Head of State Kim Jong-un, break large concrete blocks with their heads, arms and legs. But, in addition, they show the ability to withstand pain when receiving blows with maces, sitting on broken glass or bending long steel rods with the neck.
The show of force by North Korean troops comes in the same week that the country’s leader showed off the regime’s arms power. Kim Jong-un himself declared earlier this week that the United States is a factor of instability and war in the area.
The head of state declared, while showing several missiles of the national army before the cameras, that the Asian country will exercise its right to “legitimate defense” against a country that, in the words of Kim Jong-un, has not ceased hostilities towards it.
