Wartime Orders and Decisions Unprecedented in World War History

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) — The world history of war has witnessed so many wartime orders and decisions.

There were measures, not strategic and tactical ones, to completely overpower the warring countries by dealing a heavy mental blow to them.

In the Korean war in the 1950s, the DPRK, two years old, had to fight the army two million strong of the U.S. imperialists and their allied forces. But it made such unheard-of military orders, decrees and decisions.

President Kim Il Sung, the peerlessly brilliant commander of Songun with clairvoyance and matchless courage, stated that the United States misjudged the Korean people, on the very day when the war broke out. Convinced of the victory of the Korean people in the war, he worked out a grand blue-print for tomorrow in those hard-fought days.

In January Juche 40 (1951), the President instructed officials that preparations for rehabilitation and construction of Pyongyang City should be made from then on and the city be built not in its original state but as a most civilized and modern grand city. He saw to it to draw a general plan for the rehabilitation and construction of Pyongyang. In May of the next year, he saw to it that the Cabinet adopted a decision on the preparation for the rehabilitation and construction of the city.

When the United States was dispatching more and more mercenaries to the front as cannon fodder, the soldiers of the KPA were given an order on recalling soldiers to the rear.

There were the directive of the Supreme Commander of the KPA on recalling and sending soldiers from the front to universities (January 1952) and an order of the Military Commission on dispatching thousands of soldiers as forest protectors so as to strengthen the forest conservancy work (March 1953). They stirred up the confidence in victory among the army and people of Korea.

Popular policies were instituted one after another thanks to the noble outlook on people of the President who regarded the people as his God. These policies stroke terror into the hearts of the U.S. imperialist invaders.

Among them were the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly “On Enforcing the Land Reform in the Southern Region of the DPRK” (July 1950) and the Cabinet decisions “On Introducing Free Medical Care System” (November 1952), “On Increasing the Food Provision Supplied to the Families of Workers, Technicians and Office Employees” (September 1952) and “On Establishing the Honored Disabled Soldiers Schools for Officers and Men of People’s Army and Guerrillas Wounded in the Fatherland Liberation War” (April 1951).

Such measures reflecting the faith in sure victory of the President aroused the army and people of Korea to heroic feats, making the DPRK the first victorious nation in the anti-U.S. confrontation in the world.

As it is led by Supreme Commander Kim Jong Il similar to President Kim Il Sung, the DPRK will certainly emerge victorious in the present anti-U.S. confrontation.
