Pyongyang, May 27 (KCNA) — Songun politics is the most powerful basic political mode under socialism in our times that goes only by the august name of leader Kim Jong Il, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article.
It goes on:
Songun politics is the basic political mode under socialism with the revolutionary idea of Kim Jong Il as its ideological and theoretical basis.
His Songun idea indicates the revolutionary theory on bolstering up arms, consolidating the driving force of the revolution with the revolutionary army as the core and triumphantly advancing the revolution and construction by relying on it.
Songun politics is based on the great revolutionary idea giving scientific and practical answers to vital issues of winning the victory of the revolution and it, therefore, serves as the most powerful basic political mode under socialism in our times.
The revolutionary soldier spirit is the noble revolutionary one symbolizing and representing the great Songun era and the most revolutionary and militant ideological and moral weapon for working miracles and performing feats in the revolution and construction. The characteristics of Songun politics and its tremendous might lie in that it is firmly based on this great revolutionary spirit.
Kim Jong Il made sure that the Socialist Constitution codifying the idea and principle of the Songun revolution was adopted to consolidate the achievements of the Songun leadership and apply the Songun politics to all fields. The state machinery which newly stipulates the position and authority of the National Defence Commission was legally set up, providing a sure legal guarantee for Songun politics.
It is the great honor and pride of the service personnel and people of the DPRK to live and struggle in the country guided by the Songun idea, Songun politics shining with the august name and exploits of Kim Jong Il, the article concludes.
