Seoul: North Korea mobilizes 50,000 for upcoming military parade

SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- North Korea appears to have mobilized tens of thousands of troops and civilians for a massive military parade next week, South Korean officials said Monday.
Earlier this month, Seoul detected 13,000 personnel near Pyongyang's Mirim Airport, training in what appeared to be a rehearsal for a military parade to mark the founding of the North Korean army on Feb. 8.
However, the figure has risen to roughly 50,000 as of late, according to multiple officials in Seoul.
One official said the parade is likely to include card stunts, given the large number of participants, and that there haven't been signs that indicate transporter-erector-launcher missile vehicles will be deployed at the event.
North Korea's military parades usually showcase the regime's latest weapons and hardware.

Whenever I hear of large groups gathering in NK, I always wonder what they fed them all this time.
Maybe even a conjugal visit with an imprisoned wife.
Can they just find the Korean with the largest male genitalia and have his climb a tower on the DMZ and wave it at the Norks.
Then they could wave their’s back.
Think of the carbon footprint savings.
They’re going for the Gold in formation marching.
I read someplace they’re having a Flu epidemic
same people every group, soldiers, students, olympic skiers, they get fed and just change clothes.
I’m thinking: “target-rich opportunity”.
