    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un says his country's army is ready to respond to "any kind of war" against the U.S.
    Kim made the comment in a speech Saturday at a military parade marking the 70th anniversary of North Korea's ruling party.

    Kim did not specifically comment on the North's capabilities in nuclear weapons or long-range missiles in the speech, which was broadcast by the North's official Korean Central TV. He spent most of the speech stressing what he said was his government's commitment to improving the lives of his people.
    The parade kicked off a huge anniversary celebration seen by analysts as a sign that Kim is trying to build up his own stature along with that of the party relative to the military.
