A military parade does not showcase one man's ego, but is a display of power to those enemies who only understand the most primitive form of communication, in order to act as a deterrent. Better a parade than a war.

@Omni, yes I do think that is what's behind this. That is the motivation for a military parade, to display power to one's enemies. Nothing controversial about that.
It is interesting that Donald Trump directly threatened to attack North Korea if they launch more ballistic missiles, and since then things have gone pretty quiet, at least for now. Let's hope it stays that way, and that the idiot Kim Jong Un doesn't escalate.
And let's hope the idiot Trump doesn't do the same by hurling out "fire and fury" "fat Kim" "my button is bigger than your button" etc., etc.
You cannot reason with a dog, Omni. It only understands very basic things. The dog Kim Jong Un only laughs at the intellectualism of someone like Obama or Hillary. He just sees them as dickless, babbling fools. All attempts at bargaining and appeasement did nothing, and brought us to this place where a maniac now holds total power and has achieved nuclear capability. In that way, Donald Trump, for all his boorish and abusive behaviour, his glaring open threats, are exactly the kind of talk this spoiled simpleminded boy can comprehend. "You make a move, me gonna blow your country to hell."
