Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) — The Songun revolutionary line, the Songun politics of the Workers’ Party of Korea is an independent line of the new century and a banner of all victories which makes it possible to foil all forms of domination, subjugation, aggression and war moves of the imperialists and reliably defend and materialize the independence of the popular masses, observes Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an editorial article.
Now that the imperialist reactionary forces have put forward the policy of strength as the major strategy for realizing their ambition for domination over the world, it is imperative to take the road of Songun in order to meet the popular masses’ demand for independence and resolutely defend the basic interests of the nation, the article notes, and goes on:
Neither concession nor compromise can prevent the U.S. imperialists’ moves for aggression and war as they are a product of the U.S. policy, which is turning extremely reactionary, and the serious crisis of its economy. To give priority to military affairs to increase the national capacity for self-defence and make political, military and material preparations to brave aggression by the U.S. imperialists, this is the most right way of defending the security and peace of the country and the nation.
The Songun politics is the great revolutionary line and the mode of struggle whose validity and might have been proven in the 80-odd year long glorious road of the Korean revolution.
It is the unshakable faith and will of the Korean army and people to foil the imperialists’ aggression and war moves and accomplish the popular masses’ cause of independence, the cause of socialism under the uplifted banner of Songun.
Korea is now becoming an epitome of worldwide fierce stand-off between socialism and imperialism and between independent forces and the reactionaries of history. The U.S. imperialists are spearheading their attack on the DPRK which is invariably holding high the banner of socialism. The Korean army and people, however, are full of pluck and they are firmly convinced of the victory of the socialist cause.
They will as ever advance under the uplifted banner of Songun that has brought the dignity and honor of the independent people and will not concede even a step in the path of struggle chosen by themselves until the final victory is won.
It is the invariable revolutionary stand of the Korean army and people to react to the imperialists’ hard line with the toughest line.
The Songun politics of the DPRK which represents arms plus the do-or-die spirit will remain undeterred before any pressure, threat, sanctions and blockade by the U.S. imperialists.
The Korean army and people are overflowing with the spirit to destroy the fortress of aggression if the U.S. imperialists recklessly ignite a war. We will not show mercy to the arrogant and ferocious aggressors.
The Korean army and people will increase the national capacity for self-defence in every way and react to the enemies’ hard line with the toughest line unless the U.S. imperialists renounce their hostile policy toward the DPRK. They have keenly realized in the crucible of the fierce anti-imperialist struggle that only Songun is a way out and it guarantees the nation’s dignity. They will, therefore, more tightly hold arms and defend their ideology, system and cause at the cost of their lives under the WPK’s Songun leadership.
It is the fixed will of the Korean army and people to strengthen the Songun revolutionary unity with the headquarters of the revolution as its core in every way.
No nuclear weapons can overwhelm the might of their single-minded unity with which all the army and people form a fortress as strong as an iron wall around Kim Jong Il in the spirit of devotedly defending the leader, the spirit of human bullets and the spirit of readily blowing up themselves.
They will unswervingly advance along the path of independence, the path of socialism under the banner of Songun in any storm and stress to eternally glorify the victorious history of the Korean revolution and actively contribute to realizing the cause of global independence.
