There’s been a lot of talk regarding North Korea and their missiles recently.
There was a huge display of missiles in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang during a celebration of the 105th anniversary of the birth of the nation’s founder – Kim Il-Sung.
However, there’s now been a lot of speculation over whether or not the missiles are fake or not.
Take a look at this footage taken by the BBC during the parade…
Did you see this particular missile? Why’s its nose pointing upwards?
This comes after North Korea warned that they are ‘ready for war’ if the United States attacks the region as tensions rise between the two countries.
Twitter users were keen to point out that the missiles look fake as fuck.

@KeithOlbermann Him showing fake missiles is like stuffing your pants with socks. Eventually we'll all find out.

Does North Korea think they are fooling anyone with all those fake missiles on parade! Haha Funny you have ICBMs that have never been tested

Today, US and South Korean defence officials said that an attempted missile launch by North Korea failed. Well, if they’re made out of papier-mâché then that sounds about right.
A South Korean defence official told CNN that the launch happened in Sinpo, a port city in eastern North Korea.
US Pacific Command said that it tracked a missile launch at around 5:30pm ET. US Navy Commander Dave Benham, quoted by Reuters, added that the missile blew up ‘almost immediately’.
The South Korean defence ministry added: “North Korea attempted to test an unidentified type of missile from [its eastern port of] Sinpo,” they then said that the launch on Sunday had “failed”.
Well, okay then.
