    The secretive nation staged the biggest, boisterous military parade in its history. Up to a million people marched past the country's leader, who warned the United States that he was "driving it into a corner."

    Dictator Kim Jong Un pledged during Saturday's lavish exhibition to continue strengthening his military, which includes a nuclear weapons arm, claiming international sanctions aren't working and that the U.S. is caught in a dilemma trying to deal with his country.

    The military parade did not appear to display any new weapons, including the unmanned aerial drones many analysts expected to see.
