PYONGYANG, North Korea `” North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and his son, heir apparent Kim Jong Un, appeared together for a massive military parade described as "the biggest in history" by officials of the reclusive state.

The two Kims stood on a reviewing stand at Pyongyang's central Kim Il Sung Square, named after the country's national founder, where goose-stepping military personnel marched by and military hardware, including tanks, passed below.

The festivities `” officially to celebrate the foundation of the country's ruling party `” were broadcast on state television, giving the North Korean people one of their first good looks at their future leader, who will succeed his father to carry the communist dynasty into the third generation.
The elder Kim entered the venue to huge cheers from the crowd. He was accompanied by his son and other top officials including Kim Yong Nam, the president of the country's parliament.

The party last month held a landmark political convention, its most significant gathering in 30 years, at which Kim Jong Un was promoted to vice chairman of the organization's central military commission.
State TV showed military personnel marching past the reviewing stand and being saluted by Kim Jong Il and later Kim Jong Un, who was not dressed in military uniform as some analysts had expected. He wore the same dark, communist-style outfit he has been seen photographed in recently since making his public debut late last month.

the stronghold of their aggression with a merciless and righteous retaliatory strike by mobilizing all physical means, including self-defensive nuclear deterrent force, and achieve the historic task of unification," Ri Yong Ho, chief of the General Staff of the North Korean army, said before troops began marching.

Even in a country known for its elaborately staged displays of military might, the scale and pomp of the weekend festivities `” less than two weeks the news that Kim Jong Il's 20-something son would succeed him and grandfather as leader `” suggested something special.

In a radical policy shift by a government typically wary of the international press, foreign reporters and television crews were invited to cover the event
