A grand military parade in North Korea has left analysts concerned about the nuclear threat posed by the hermit nation. The cause of their worry is a new missile, a mock-up of which was paraded during the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Workers' Party of North Korea. If fully operational, the missile could be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads and targeting American cities. North Korea already has missiles capable of striking US cities, but it is the multiple warheads that any missile carries that makes defending against it much harder and more expensive. Many believe the missile gives North Korea a potent bargaining chip in future negotiations with the US. That will depend on whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden wins the election.
