Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) — There are many countries and armies in the world but no army is so faithful to the party and the leader and so devotedly serves the country and the people as the Korean People’s Army, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article.
The total dedication to the country and the people as well as the intense loyalty to the party and the leader is the noble ideological and moral traits of the KPA servicepersons trained under the care of Kim Jong Il, the great brilliant commander. This serves as a powerful engine dynamically pushing ahead with the Korean revolution and construction, the article notes, and goes on:
The KPA’s spirit of devoted service to the country and the people is the noble fighting spirit of devoting youth and lives to the security and prosperity of the country and the happiness of the people.
Under the original Songun revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Il the servicepersons have firmly defended the socialist homeland from the U.S. imperialists’ moves for military invasion and displayed total dedication in the drive to build a rich and powerful country and improve the standard of people’s living.
Their spirit of devoted service to the country and the people finds its manifestation in the fact that they have reliably defended the socialist homeland with ardent patriotism.
They regard the defence of the country as a most vivid manifestation of patriotism. And they consider the period of their military service as a university course in the Songun revolution as it provides them with an opportunity to fully train themselves ideologically and morally and physically and as proud and worthwhile days as their service is aimed to reliably defend the security of the socialist country and wellbeing of the people.
They are ready to lay down their lives for the sake of the motherland. This noble ideological and moral outlook, patriotic devotion, serves as a source of invincibility of the KPA.
The KPA’s spirit of devoted service to the country and the people is being fully displayed in performing heroic feats in socialist construction and infinitely valuing and firmly protecting the lives and properties of the people.
