PYONGYANG, North Korea — Goose-stepping North Korean soldiers marched through Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square on Saturday in a lavish military parade to mark the 70th anniversary of the country’s ruling party and trumpet the leadership of third-generation dictator Kim Jong Un.
The parade kicked off what is expected to be one of North Korea’s biggest celebrations ever — an attention-getting event that is the government’s way of showing the world and its own people that the Kim dynasty is firmly in control and its military a power to be reckoned with.
