North Korea is today marking the 101st anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-sung, the nations founder.

KCNA reports that Kim Jong-Un payed his respects to Kim Il-sung, his grandfather, at the mausoleum Kim Il-sung and former leader Kim Jong-Il lay.

It is feared that because today marks the anniversary of the founding father of the DPRK, the DPRK could possibly launch a ballistic missile as they did on Kim-Il-sung’s anniversary last year in 2012. Any ballistic missile launch by the DPRK would likely be condemned world wide, with China also siding with the United States on this issue. Japan has said that they would shoot down any missile that entered its territory.
