North Korea held its annual military parade a day before the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympics just 40 miles from its border with South Korea. While the timing was no surprise, in this episode of the podcast we take a closer look at the messages Pyongyang meant to send as well some of the hardware they chose to put on display.

We also dive into renewed discussions about reviving military parades in the United States, how they’re used as a projection of power and why the United States moved away from them in the past with Stratfor Vice President of Strategic Analysis Rodger Baker and Asia-Pacific Analyst Evan Rees.
