Sen. McCain on North Korean leader: 'He is a insane fat kid'

Some pictures show leader Kim Jong-un with a big smile on his face when the forces, clad in black sunglasses and their faces painted in black camouflage, appear.

"North Korea has referred to me as the lesser evil". Kim said it's important to understand the history of both countries.

The forces' debut, and the parade itself, came just a few days before the start of US-South Korea joint military exercises, and analysts who spoke to Yonhap said the formation was related to the exercises - in particular a reported "decapitation attack" simulation to be performed by the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team 6, the unit that killed Osama bin Laden. The team is expected to fly out of Seoul, South Korea on Friday.

The nominee of the center-left People's Party made the claim in response to a North Korean media report that disparaged him as the "lesser evil" for conservatives in an election shaping up to be a two-way race between Ahn and Moon Jae-in of the liberal Democratic Party.

North Korea's special forces, according to the white paper, expanded from 120,000 in 2006 to about 200,000 in 2010, accounting for 17% of Pyongyang's forces at that point. "The regime also seems to have stepped up plans to infiltrate South Korean rear areas with the troops".

"South Koreans basically shrug their shoulders whenever North Korea makes these types of rhetorical remarks". Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea this week to ensure the country that it has the United States' support. North Korean Vice Minister Han Song Ryol responded that if "the United States is planning a military attack against us, we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method".

A North Korean resident tried to sell American identification tags to the United States by transferring them to him via his acquaintance in China past year, but the resident picked them up after he did not show interest in the trade, Kim was quoted as saying to RFA.

North Korea's deputy U.N. ambassador accused the United States on Monday of turning the Korean Peninsula into "the world's biggest hotspot" and creating "a risky situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment".
