Why has socialism in the DPRK been so successful and still continues to hold the red flag high for the world proletariat?
In his “Army centred politics of Kim Jong Il” Professor Kim Chol U states that
“ Kim Jong Ils army centred politics is rooted in the Juche idea. It is a mode of politics that was created in the practical struggle of waging the revolution in the Korean way guided by the Juche idea that fully reflects the requirements of the idea. In others words, it is based on the theory that the army means the Party, the state and the people.”
Songun politics is putting the military first and making the military the torch barer of the revolution. It is the correct policy is a world now dominated by western imperialism. Western imperialism runs rampant and as we are seeing in Libya today causes havoc and chaos were ever it wants. The correct policy of the Korean workers party under the wise leadership of the dear leader comrade Kim Jong il has given western imperialism and the new Third Reich that is NATO pause for thought about trying to combat socialism in Korea.
If other socialist nations, before the agents of western imperialism managed to infiltrate their societies using revisionist spies, had taken heed of the wise policies of the great leader comrade Kim Il sung and put the army on the highest pedestal of the revolution then these nations would still exist today in freedom and independence as apposed to slavery and poverty.
Songun politics are not only the correct response for a socialist country to take to imperialist encirclement but the ideologically correct communist policy for any socialist nation. As professor Kim Chol U again states:
“Marx and Engels pointed out that in order to establish the socialist system, it is necessary to prepare the revolutionary force, namely, the army of the workers and peasants and other working masses”
The worker and peasant army as embodied the Korean Peoples Army is the only democratic army in the world now. The workers and peasants are the masters of the revolution they don’t have a stake in society they are society. Songun politics puts the peoples army at the centre of the revolution and hence the workers and peasants army really feel part of the socialist cause.
Another quote from the same work I think out lines why and how the DPRK has been so successful in defending the socialist system at home and helping us, communists abroad, in understanding how to build and defend a socialist system.
“The hope of western politicians for a change in policy in the north was based on their judgment that in the adverse circumstances, the north would be forced to haul down the Red flag of Juche-orinated socialism. The situation was grave. Kim Jong il however, absolutely refused.
Don’t expect any change in me, he said, we will win if we keep socialism; we will perish if we abandon it.
The clear political answer was an expression of an iron will and faith to maintain and implement Juche-orientated socialism, whatever the difficulties.
In these most difficult circumstances, what or who did he believe in when he declared his political decision to keep the socialist flag flying, not only today but in the distant future? He trusted in the military force he had built up for decades”
That lengthy quote proves that Songun politics is the correct communist policy in times of hardship. The situation our movement faced in the late 1980s and early 1990s was grave and the leaders of European communism were found wanting in the hour of the proletariat's need. But the DPRK showed us all how to march forward to victory and maintain the communist system.
The armed forces of a socialist country are born in combat against the capitalist during the revolution. The ranks and officers are the workers and peasants, the army is the centre of the revolution and comrades Kim il Sung and Kim Jong il have proven this to the world!
Long live anti-revisionist Juche centred socialism with the peoples army at its head! Long live Songun politics!

The Songun revolutionary leadership is basically a continuination of the theories , ideas and leadership of the great leader President Kim Il Sung . The president have learnt through the anti-Japanese armed struggle that arms guarantee the advance of the revolution and the independence of the nation .
The Korean People's Army was built up as the core of the revolution as well a powerful Juche-orientated defence force in which every soldier is a match for a hundred enemy soldiers and every soldier is a cadre.
The five plus decades of Songun revolutionary leadership have had great results . The DPRK is solid self-reliant military power, a socialist anti-imperialist military power of Juche The US and south Korea were powerless to do anything about the nuclear test or the Yongphyong island incident in November 2010. It is thanks to Songun that a war has not broken out on the Korean peninsula.
The Songun revolutionary leadership and Songun politics have greatly boosted the DPRK's international prestige as evidenced by the recent successful visits of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il to the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation. Songun politics is a powerful driving force for independent reunification.
Songun politics is indeed a powerful political mode of socialism leading it to victory
UK KFA salutes the 51st anniversary of the Songun revolutionary leadership !
Wednesday, 24 August 2011
Today is the 42nd anniversary of the foundation of the Revolutionary Party for Reunification which is the proud and valiant forerunner of today's Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea , the vanguard force of the south Korean revolution which fights for the independence and democratisation of south Korea and advances militantly to the cherished goal of reunification.
The RPR was founded on the 25 of August 1969 by the south Korean revolutionaries inspired by the teachings of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung on the south Korean revolution and the immortal Juche idea. The south Korean workers and peasants came to have their own vanguard party guided by the Juche idea.
Leaders of the RPR such as Kim Jong Tae and Choi Young Do were murdered by the south Korean puppet fascist regime becoming martyrs for the south Korean revolution and the reunification of the country . The RPR fought hard against the south Korean puppet regime and the US imperialists using all forms of struggle , legal and illegal, violent and non-violent . The RPR , guided by the great Juche idea, not only struggled against the south Korean puppet regime
but also against revisionism, flunkeyism , opportunism, dogmatism and factionalism.
The RPR to reflect the mass democratic struggles in the 1980s against the fascist Chun regime of south Korea became the National Democratic Front of south Korea . The NDFSK played a valiant role in the struggle to democratise south Korea and overthrow the Chun-Roh fascists. During the late 1980s south Korean students and youth , risking jail, studied the Juche idea
Later the NDFSK became the Anti-imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea. Today the AINDF is fighting hard against the neo-colonial country-selling fascist regime of Lee Myung Bak, the traitor to the Korean nation.
ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA salute the AINDF on its 42nd anniversary . We are very proud to have such fine comrades as the AINDF

London 21st of August Juche 100 (2011)
Today the ASSPUK and JISGE issued a joint statement saluting the 51st anniversary of the start of the Songun revolutionary leadership,an auspicious event in the history of the Songun revolution , the history of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea and the world anti-imperialist struggle.
The Songun revolutionary leadership started on the 25th of August when the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il made an inspection of the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guard 105 Tank Division of the Korean People’s Army. This KPA unit itself had profound historical significance as was named after an anti Japanese revolutionary fighter who had also been a divisional commander in the Fatherland Liberation War. The tank divsion had liberated Seoul in the Fatherland Liberation War breaking through the barrier of national division imposed by the US imperialists.
The guidance, of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il, to Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guard 105 tank division epitimotised the revolutionary Songun idea and spirit of putting military affairs first and politics second. Moreover it put forward the concept of the army as the pillar of the revolution. This brilliantly encapsulated the whole experience of the Korean revolution which began and advanced by the force of arms.
Leader Kim Jong Il strengthened the KPA ideologically and political as well increasing its combat strength. He ensured the KPA was modelled on the monolithic ideology of Juche and was an army of the leader, an army of the party , the revolution and the working class. The Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il firmly eschewed and rejected the non-class , "non ideological " theories of the modern revisionists as well those theories that prettify imperialism and preach submission to it.
The KPA and Korean people under the Songun revolutionary leadership achieving great feats in defending the country from the US imperialists.The KPA captured the USS Pueblo and brought down the US imperialist aggressor spy plane the EC121.They resolutely countered the US imperialist provocation at Panmumjom in 1976 and intercepted the Yankee helicopter that had intruded into DPRK airspace in 1994.
Thanks to the inspired Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong, fearless commander of Mt Paektu the DPRK faced down the US in the first and second ‘nuclear crisis’ in which the US imperialists and international reactionaries tried to stifle Korean style people -centred socialism. The DPRK defeated US imperialism in the war without gunshots by coming to posses a self-defensive nuclear deterrent and successfully tested it defying US imperialism and tearing its policies to shreds.
The Songun politics created by the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il is the perfect political mode for socialism . Songun means that socialism is strong . It defends the independence of socialism.
The Songun revolutionary leadership is leading the Korean revolution and DPRK forward to victory and is carrying forward the Juche revolutionary cause pioneered by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. The Songun revolutionary leadership , carried out over a period of 5 decades, is a profound inspiration to the peoples aspiring after independence and socialism.
Over 51 years have passed since leader Kim Jong Il visited Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division on August 25, 1960 together with President Kim Il Sung, and thus began his Songun revolutionary leadership.
Nobody knew then why he started his leadership calling at an army unit, not a factory or a farm.
It was on June 23, 1964, a few days after he started his work at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
Talking to an anti-Japanese revolutionary veteran working at the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army, he said: I will in the future pay a great effort to strengthen the People’s Army as well as the Party. Without strengthening the People’s Army we cannot strengthen the Party, maintain the government and safeguard the security of the country and the people.
The veteran looked up at him with wonder and admiration.
Kim Jong Il went on to say: I spent my childhood in the anti-Japanese battlefield hearing gun report as a lullaby. That must be the reason why I like gun so much and want to spare nothing for the People’s Army.
He said that the gun was his first comrade and an eternal pillar in his mind.
Those were the remarks that could only be made by a great son of the guerrilla army with firm conviction and will.
With his steadfast resolve Kim Jong Il energetically pushed ahead with the cause of the leader-centered party and army building early from the 1960s.
On December 24, 1996, marking the fifth anniversary of his appointment as Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, Kim Jong Il talked to the KPA commanding officers.
He said it was his rock-firm decision to tide over severe trials by depending on the People’s Army as the pillar of revolution.
He told them that they must understand why he gives priority to the People’s Army and that he leads the revolution and construction on the principle of placing the army ahead of the working class.
The concept of carrying on revolutionary struggle and construction with the working class as their core and main force had so far been considered to be an inviolable formula of revolution for socialism.
Kim Jong Il, however, enforcing the Songun politics, defined the People’s Army, not the working class, as the main force of revolution.
In safeguarding socialism to the end it is a very serious problem to define its pillar correctly, he noted, and stressed the need to strengthen the People’s Army, the defender of our socialism centered on the people.
A house can be safe only when its pillar is strong.
Today Songun Korea demonstrates its might and dignity to the full with the KPA serving as a pillar of revolution under the energetic guidance of Kim Jong Il, brilliant commander of Songun politics.
Having keenly felt already five decades ago that the future of a nation lies in Songun and the welfare of people and the prosperity of a country also lie in Songun, Kim Jong Il started his Songun revolutionary leadership with his visit to an army unit and today leads the building of a thriving nation by relying on the revolutionary soldier spirit.
The 51 years of leader Kim Jong Il’s Songun revolutionary leadership are decorated with victory and glory to safeguard the safety of the nation and open the road of prosperity by strengthening the KPA.
Ten years have passed since the Three Charters for National Reunification Memorial Tower was erected in Pyongyang.
The memorial tower was unveiled on August 14, Juche 90(2001), a day before the 56th anniversary of the country’s liberation from the Japanese colonial rule.
Thenceforth, more than 900 000 people have visited the tower.
Some 15 500 of them are overseas Koreans and foreigners belonging to nearly 3 000 groups.
The arch-style memorial tower covers over 100 000 square meters, with its platform embossed with group sculptures.
The tower is 30 meters high find 61.5 meters wide, symbolizing the three charters for national reunification and the June 15 joint declaration.
The tower portrays two women in Korean dress holding up the emblem of the three charters.
The tower’s weight, 7 000 tonnes, mirrors the strong will of the 70 million Koreans to pool efforts and reunify the country.
Standing near the tower is a monument containing President Kim Il Sung’s proposition.
On display there are some 820 stone pieces presented by state and party leaders and prominent figures of other countries, and south and overseas Koreans.
When the tower was unveiled, the stone pieces numbered 740.
Many pro-reunification events, including a grand festival for national reunification in 2001, took place there.
President Kim Il Sung in his reminiscences "With the Century" wrote, "Revolutionaries, believe in the people and rely on them at all times and you shall always emerge victorious; if you are forsaken by them, you will always fail. Let this be your maxim in your life and struggle".
With this maxim, the President successfully waged two decades of the anti-Japanese struggle for national liberation.
In the second half of the 1920s, Korean communists and nationalists were indulged in scramble for hegemony and empty talk, not devoting themselves to the struggle for the country's liberation.
Under the situation, the President keenly felt that the working people awakened in a revolutionary way can display great strength and make revolution by themselves under any unfavorable and difficult conditions and that those relying on the people in revolution find nothing impossible.
With the idea that as fish cannot live without water, so guerrillas cannot live without the people, he made the anti-Japanese guerilla army truly serve the people.
He always regarded it as a life-or-death issue of the army to love the people and enjoy their support.
Under his great leadership the Korean People's Revolutionary Army successfully accomplished the historic cause of national liberation, based on close relations with the people

Kim Jong Il.
The five decades of Songun revolutionary leadership have produced great results and vast achievements. Of course the main one is the DPRK, a socialist state of Juche has been able to maintain solidly its independence and defy all imperialist attempts to encroach on its sovereignty. It has proudly held high the banner of socialism despite the frustration of socialism in a number of countries, it has rejected so called "reform" and "opening up" which are just a trick to destroy socialism from within.
Another durable achievement and one that effectively underpins everything is army-people unity. In the DPRK the people and army are united. The KPA is deeply respected by the people . This is a contrast to the imperialist countries . In imperialist countries soldiers are viewed with suspicision because of their role in imperialist wars and in oppressing the people or even contemptously viewed as "thick squaddies " -people of low intelligence unable to do any other job. However in the DPRK service in the army is a matter of honour and every youth wants to join the army. The army is respected by the people and seen as their army , the army of the people.
The DPRK has established firm traditions of army-people unity. Their origins lay in the anti-Japanese armed struggle and the Fatherland Liberation War. During the anti-Japanese armed struggle the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung always emphasised that just as a fish could not live outside water the guerrillas could not live without the people. During the Fatherland Liberation war the KPA and Korean established firm bonds of fraternity. The army-people unity displayed in the Fatherland Liberation War was an important factor propelling the victory of the Korean people against the US imperialists.
Starting his Songun revolutionary leadership in 1960 the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il did everything to solidify and enhance the firm tradition of army -people unity declaring that the People's Army is the main pillar of the revolution , the core of society .Admirable traits of the people assisting the army and the army assisting the people have come into full bloom . The KPA participates vigorously in the work of economic construction and improving the people's living standards. Several "army-people " power stations have been built such as the Anbyon Power station. People feel that it is that duty to assist and help the army .
If the US imperialists attack Korea then the people and army will become one , an indestructible force under the command of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il which will wipe out the imperialists to the last soldier.
The DPRK is marching ahead under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il in the spirit of Songun-based army-people unity. Indeed the DPRK is the most united society in the world ,this year many countries have been shaken by upheavals and disturbances owing to internal contradictions but the DPRK is united and racing towards the goal of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation under the Songun revolutionary leadership.
Pyongyang, August 20 (KCNA) -- Cases sparking social furor are occurring in the United States.
Some days ago, a man was arrested while crossing a fence of the White House, with a knapsack containing explosives on his back, kicking off a row.
The president was inside the building at that time, a press report said.
Prior to the case, two unidentified planes flew in the sky above the Camp David on the outskirts of Washington one after another, prompting a U.S. forces plane to make an urgent sortie.
Besides, a vehicle suspected of carrying explosives was detected near the building of the Defense Department to totally cordon off roads leading to it and post envelops containing white powder were reportedly sent to schools in Washington, D.C., etc. These shocking cases are occurring in an unbroken chain, throwing people into greater uneasiness and horror.
A bill on allowing same sex marriage was made into a law in New York State recently, stunning the public. This brought together six states which legalized same sex marriage in the U.S.
All facts go to clearly prove that the U.S. is a corrupt and degenerated society. -0-

Pyongyang, August 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Wednesday issued the following statement denouncing the U.S. and the south Korean authorities for kicking off the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises:
The United States and the south Korean authorities kicked off extremely provocative and aggressive Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises targeted against the DPRK despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK.
This saber-rattling started by the U.S. in collusion with the south Korean authorities is maneuvers for a nuclear war against the DPRK which brought to light their invariable hostile aim to stifle it by force of arms.
This is entailing such adverse consequences as vitiating the atmosphere of dialogue created with much effort in reflection of the unanimous desire and wishes of the people at home and abroad for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and straining the situation.
The U.S. is staging exercises for a war of aggression against its dialogue partner while putting up signboard of dialogue. This incoherent behavior on the part of the U.S. is only adding to the skepticism about whether it is sincere towards dialogue or not.
It is preposterous for the U.S. to urge the DPRK to refrain from bolstering its nuclear deterrent, while whetting its swords for a war of aggression behind the scene of dialogue.
It is very ill-boding that the U.S. let "a special action unit" participate in the on-going joint military exercises as it is one tasked to detect and destroy nuclear weapons of the DPRK.
The prevailing situation goes to prove that the U.S. is not set to realize the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and negotiations but seize an opportunity to deprive it of nuclear deterrent by a brigandish method.
It is self-evident that the DPRK should put spurs to bolstering its nuclear deterrent for self-defence both in quality and quantity to cope with this situation.
Invariable is the stand of the DPRK to preserve peace and denuclearize the peninsula through dialogue and negotiations.
No attempt on the part of the U.S. to do harm to the DPRK by force of arms can go with dialogue. This will only face the mode of merciless counteraction of Korean-style. -0-

We have just learnt ,with shock and anger , the Britain is participating in the so-called "Ulji Freedom Guardian " war exercises of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets as part of the so called "UN command forces " in south Korea. We , the UK Korean Friendship Association, the Association for the Study of Songun Politics of the UK and the Juche Idea Study Group, in a joint statement strongly denounce this.
The UFG exercises are nothing but war exercises aimed at a dry-run at invading the DPRK and destroying its socialist system. The so-called "UN command " in south Korea is a ghost like structure which simply aims at covering up US imperialist aggression in south Korea.
This gives an even more sinister complexion to the war exercises as the revival of the moribund "UN command " is an attempt to create 'multi-national force' as in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya . It is a disgrace that Britain is being reduced to a mere satellite state of US imperialism . Is the UK government planning to repeat the shameful past when Britain along with other satellite states of US imperialism sent troops to murder and oppress the Korean people and prevent the reunification of Korea.
We demand that Britain immediately withdraws its forces from these exercises and reiterate that the whole UFG exercise must be halted and cancelled immediately,
London 17th August Juche 100 (2011)
The ASSPUK and JISGE today issued a joint statement in support of the DPRK stance on
"reform " and "opening up" as expressed in the editorial of "Rodong Sinmun " the daily newspaper of the Workers' Party of Korea in an article entitled "Imperialists urged to roll -back their hostile policies towards the DPRK " on the 9th of August .
The editorial makes it plain the DPRK 's stance towards 'reform' and 'opening' . It does not need to 'reform ' and 'open up' . It is totally absurd to speak about 'reform ' and 'opening up'.
"Reform " and "opening up " have been a disaster where they have been applied. The Soviet Union and the eastern European socialist countries adopted "reform" and "opening up" in the 1960s and renewed the policy in the 1980s causing the collapse of socialism in those countries. As a result the people of these countries have suffered unemployment , poverty and conflict. The capitalism system throughout the world is in deep crisis and conflict and disorder prevail.
To talk about "reform" and "opening up" is a grave infringement of the sovereignty of the DPRK. It is a despicable trick to destroy the Juche-based people-orientated socialist system.
Thus we Juche idea and Songun idea followers strongly support the stance of the DPRK .
Pyongyang, August 16 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet belligerent group kicked off the provocative Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises targeted against the DPRK across south Korea on Tuesday despite the strong protest and denunciation of the people at home and abroad.
According to the newly revised and supplemented scenario for a war against the north, modern war hardware including nuclear attack means and more than 30 000 troops of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces, and commands of army corps, fleets and flying corps and above and troops of various services under them of the puppet army, 530 000 troops of huge aggressor forces in all, have entered into exercises for invading the north simultaneously.
They hurled even some satellite forces which had fought during the Korean War as part of "UN forces."
By starting the above-said saber-rattling they once again brought to light their belligerent and ugly colors as the very ones talking about peace but preparing a war while whetting sword behind the scene.They would be well advised to bear in mind the resentment of the army and the people of the DPRK and their resolution to retaliate against them are running high. They are fully convinced that if a war breaks out on this land, they will lose only the Military Demarcation Line and gain the national reunification, the cherished desire. -0

Korea was not liberated by another country. It was liberated due to the Juche-orientated guerrilla tactics of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung.
The puppet forces asserted that in the past, too, the "north made Ddos attack upon Chongwadae, Intelligence Service and other 'government' institutions and attacked the financial computer network, paralyzing it." They are also busy spreading the story about the "north's cyber terrorism", saying that there are a lot of hackers in the north whose level of cyber warfare is equal to that of CIA of the U.S.
This is another unpardonable provocation to the DPRK.
Whoever has elementary common sense of IT and hacking can easily understand what sheer fabrication their story about the "north's cyber terrorism" is.
Even experts of south Korea ridicule what the security authorities claim as evidence is sheer nonsense in the light of common sense. They are accusing the police of spreading the story without a clear reason in a bid to attain real results. Even the authorities concerned officially announced that there is no such fact.
The puppet authorities pulled up the north over "cyber terrorism" and the like in the past. It was not once that all what they spread was proved that they were done by those within south Korea or intervention of third countries, thus becoming the laughing stock of the public at home and abroad.
There are in south Korea many hackers and hacking organizations and there take place almost every day cases of cyber terrorism in which secret information of individuals, institutions and organizations is massively diverted to them.
The tentacles of the puppet group's cyber terrorism are also stretched to the DPRK.
As the truth behind the illegal hacking of the puppet forces against Internet websites of the DPRK overseas was brought to light at the outset of the year, the puppet group is the kingpin of cyber terrorism.
The story about the "north's cyber terrorism" floated by the puppet security authorities is nothing but a ridiculous artifice to tarnish the DPRK's international image, justify their policy for escalating the confrontation with the DPRK and divert the public attention elsewhere.
This was also prompted by their sinister intention to cover up their human rights abuses including wiretapping and hacking operations of the fascist security authorities against the progressive forces of south Korea.
The puppet group should drop such bad habit as pulling up others over nonsensical issue.
The more frantically the south Korean authorities hatch conspiratorial plots, the more bitter shame and ridicule they will face. The south Korean conservative group would be well advised to stop at once such despicable farce as using even cyber technology for escalating the confrontation with compatriots and the anti-DPRK campaign. -

Recently riots swept large parts of the UK claiming up 6 lives. Yet in the DPRK such a thing is unheard of . Why ? The DPRK is one of the most stable countries on earth, in fact probably the most stable country in the world . Young people there do not riot but instead act as the shock brigade in socialist construction and take part with vigour in the defence of the country . The DPRK is based on the socialist ownershup of the means of production so there is no social inequality . In the DPRK there is no unemployment , there are no spending cuts and taxation was abolished in 1974 .
The DPRK is based on the Juche idea , the philosophical principle of which is that man is the master . Thus because of the socialist ownership of the means of production which is both underpinned and enhanced by the Juche idea , people in the DPRK have a high sense of 'taking ownership' of 'stakeholding' which does not exist in any capitalist country. Under the banner of the Juche idea and the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il , the DPRK is a harmonious and integral whole . If you visit the Korean Revolution Museum you will see the picture of the great leader President Kim Il Sung with the people around him symbolising the unity, amity and harmony of the DPRK which is impossible in a sick ,decadent capitalist society like the UK.

Pyongyang, August 10 (KCNA) -- The south Korean military warmongers are faking up again the burlesque that the army of the DPRK committed shelling "provocation" in the waters around Yonphyong Island and kicking up an anti-DPRK racket by mobilizing major media including KBS, MBC and Yonhap TV.
The head of the north side to the north-south military working-level talks gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA today in this connection:
At a time when a dynamic drive is making successful progress to build a thriving nation in all parts of the DPRK, there was normal blasting in the area of South Hwanghae Province close to the five islands in the West Sea of Korea on August 10 as part of the brisk construction of a gigantic object aimed at improving the standard of people's living,
Frightened by this, the south Korean military warmongers spread misinformation that the army of the DPRK perpetrated a shelling "provocation." They went the lengths of militarily reacting to this under that pretext.
It was preposterous in the age of science when latest detecting and intelligence means are available that they mistook the blasting for shelling and they proved shells fell in the waters around the "northern limit line" though no shells were fired. It was a tragicomedy that they indiscriminately reacted to what happened with counter-shelling even without confirming the truth about the case in the sensitive waters of the West Sea of Korea.
In order to paint the case as a "provocation" of the army of the DPRK, the south Korean military is making much fuss that its forces made a prompt "retaliatory action" as the firing of three shells was heard from near Yonphyong Island in the West Sea and one shell might have flown across the "northern limit line, " a sheer fiction.
In order to make their farce sound plausible, the south Korean belligerent elements made much fuss. They urgently increased the number of combat warships and flew fighters in the air near the five islands in the West Sea and alerted the frontline units. They, at the same time, ordered all the fishing boats of the south side to stop their operations and sail back to their ports and evacuated inhabitants.
The army of the DPRK cannot overlook the actions taken by the south Korean military to orchestrate another poor anti-DPRK charade in broad daylight on the basis of their misjudgment of the normal blasting made in the course of peaceable construction as shelling provocation.
The recent military racket was an extension of the inveterate bad habit of the tricksters. They fabricated the "Cheonan" warship sinking case, the hideous conspiratorial farce unprecedented in the history of the nation, launching an all-out confrontation with fellow countrymen. Not content with this, they committed the Yonphyong Island shelling, driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the worst war phase of exchange of fire.
Such burlesque is a product of the deliberate moves of the belligerent forces of the south Korean military to vitiate the atmosphere of dialogue in the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity and push the inter-Korean relations to the worst phase of confrontation and clash.
The DPRK side sent an open letter to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities in the name of the Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army, urging them to cancel their projected Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises this year. What merits a serious attention is that they faked up the above-said case to achieve their sinister aim to stage this saber-rattling as planned at any cost, defying the warning, in a bid to strain the situation on the Korean Peninsula again.
Lurking behind the recent racket is an ulterior aim: To secure a pretext for staging the above-said saber-rattling through the shelling case in a bid to have justification to launch an actual war of aggression against the north any time, while inciting atmosphere of confrontation with the DPRK through the fabrication of all kinds of "spy ring cases", "cases of the violation of the National Security Law" and "attempted assassinations".
Plots and fabrications are trite methods employed by those in a crisis.
What has become clear once again through the recent case is that the south Korean authorities, belligerent forces of the military, in particular, are the master hands at plots and fabrications who stoop to any infamy to escalate the confrontation with fellow countrymen.
The criminals can never escape a stern judgment by all the fellow countrymen.
The army and people of the DPRK will resolutely shatter all the plots and fabrications of those confrontation-minded elements against the DPRK and keep advancing to improve the inter-Korean relations and achieve the peace and reunification of the nation. -0-
London 10th August.
Today the Juche Idea Study Group of England and Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK issued a joint statement denouncing the US imperialist Ulji Freedom Guardian war exercises , which are aimed at invading and taking over the DPRK to make it a colony of US Imperialism.
It is as a clear as day that these exercises are a clear cut provocation and a rehearsal to invade the DPRK and destroy its people centred socialist system by force of arms. The exercises are a clumsy attempt a to stifle its socialist system.It is an enlarged replica of the 'gunboat diplomacy' of the imperialists of yesterday.
Not only are these exercises large in scale (involving 30,000 troops) but they are actually a trial run for the occupation of the north of Korea . They aim at restoring capitalism there by force . 'Ulji Freedom Guardian" has nothing to do with freedom but with extending the corrupt fascist rule of the south Korean puppets to the northern half of Korea and with establishing US imperialist colonial rule over the whole of the Korean peninsula and achieving the US domination of Asia and the Pacific.
We support the open letter to the US and south Korean authorities issued by the Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army on the 8th of August calling for the cancellation of the exercises.
Such war exercises call into the question the sincerity of the US in its dialogue and negotiations . The US imperialists are talking peace at the negotiation table in New York but actually preparing for war on the ground in Korea. If the US has the will for peace it should cancel the exercises completely, unconditionally and immediately.
We, the ASSPUK and JISGE,demand the US imperialists and south Korean puppets cancel these adventurous war exercises at once !Furthermore the US imperialists must get out of south Korea where they do not belong.We stand four square behind the DPRK and call on all Juche idea and Songun idea followers to rally around the independent socialist Juche Peoples Korea as never before. Defeat the US imperialist moves against the DPRK !
NO TO ULJI FREEDOM GUARDIAN !
HANDS OFF THE DPRK !
LONG LIVE JUCHE !
The UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a the following statement in connection with Ulji Freedom Guardian war exercises of the US imperialists and south
the US and south Korea are truly sincere about dialogue and negotiation with the DPRK then they must immediately cancel the planned Ulji Freedom Guardian Exercise scheduled for 16th of August to 26th of August. It really goes without saying that war provocation exercises are incompatible with dialogue , such exercises represent an actual negation of dialogue.
These exercises are massive in scale with 30,000 troops and last for a duration of 10 days , this gives them an intensity which not only threatens the DPRK's sovereignty and independence but is a serious threat to peace in Asia and the world . They are very clearly aimed at not only a military invasion of the DPRK but the actual occupation of the DPRK ruling north Korea by force after smashing up the DPRK and its socialist system. This is completely intolerable and must be thwarted .
UK KFA unreservedly calls for the immediate cancellation of Ulji Freedom Guardian war exercises and an end to the malicious provocations of US imperialism and the south Korean puppet regime.
London 12th of August Juche 100(2011
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK and the Juche Idea Study Group of England today issued a joint statement on the occasion of the 66th anniversary of Korea' liberation on the 15th of August.
Korea was liberated on the 15th of August 1945 by the Korean People's Revolutionary Army under the command of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung , a gifted military strategist and ever victorious iron-willed general .
The liberation of Korea ended the darkness of Japanese imperialist rule so that the Korean people basked in the sunlight of independence . They became free from the iron shackles of Japanese imperialism , free to speak Korean and to be Korean. They became masters of their destiny. Thunderous cheers of the Korean people reverberated when Korea became independent and embarked on the road of Juche.
This was due to the 20 year long anti-Japanese armed struggle waged by the heroic partisans of the KPRA under the leadership of great general Kim Il Sung , gifted military genius . The KPRA fought the million strong forces of the Kwantung army of Japanese imperialism, without a stable rear base or state support . Japanese imperialism was a most ferocious imperialism, feared by many, and the shock brigade of international fascism allied to Hitler's Germany. The KPRA fought in the spirit of self-reliance . They fought without compromise or vacillation not knowing any ceasefires or laying down arms. The truth of Songun that arms advance the revolution
was fully embodied in the anti-Japanese armed struggle.
The anti-Japanese armed struggle waged under the revolutionary banner of Juche under the command of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung, ever-victorious iron willed brilliant, commander was a powerful inspiration to the oppressed peoples fighting for independence against imperialism. The anti-Japanese armed struggle was a powerful model of an anti-imperialist , anti-colonial struggle for independence and freedom.
Korea's liberation and its independence was the most precious gain of the Korean people . It was primarily due the Juche-orientated guerrilla tactics of the great leader General Kim Il Sung and the self-sacrificing struggle of the stalwart partisans of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army. Today Korea's independence is being consolidated under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il.
We extend you the best comradely regards.
Now there prevails on the Korean Peninsula an extremely dangerous situation where a war could break out any moment due to the desperate military provocations and continuous war drills by the US and south Korean warmongers.
As was reported, the South Korea-US Combined Command announced on July 18 that they would stage joint military exercises codenamed “Ulji Freedom Guardian” from 16 to 26 of August.
Some 30,000 US troops including the US army stationing abroad and some 56,000 south Korean puppet troops will be mobilized to the drills which are to be conducted throughout south Korea .
What is more dangerous is that they planned to rehearse the “operations to stabilize the north and transfer a civil administration” in case of a so-called “emergency”, and let the “Five Provinces Agency of the North” and “Five Provinces Committee of the North”, organs for “unification of systems”, take part in them for the first time.
Though commander James Thurman of the South Korea-US Combined Command said the forthcoming UFG is mainly aimed to build up the combat readiness posture of the south Korea-US alliance so as to cope with and overcome all the threats in the region of the Korean Peninsula, the upcoming joint military drills with the latest nuclear war equipment and huge troops mobilized are nuclear war exercises based on a preemptive strike scenario for invasion of the north from A to Z.
The drills create a big hurdle in the way of realizing peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula as they are aimed to achieve the US strategy of military hegemony in the Northeast Asian region.
In particular, as they are to be staged at the time when north-south negotiations and the DPRK-US negotiations for the denuclearization of the peninsula take place amid the world attention thanks to the proactive and positive measures taken by the DPRK, the danger and consequences to be entailed by the drills assume more serious nature.
The US imperialists and the south Korean puppets should stop at once the UFG following the desire and demand of all the Koreans and the world peace-loving people for lasting peace and security of the peninsula.
Now the anti-war peace organizations and patriotic people of different circles in south Korea are vigorously waging mass struggle to condemn the reckless nuclear war drills against the north by the US imperialists and the traitorous Lee Myung-bak regime hell-bent on launching a war at any cost to inflict a nuclear calamity on the Korean nation.
We avail ourselves of this opportunity to express our expectation and belief that your organization which opposes the aggression and high-handedness of the imperialists and values the world peace and the human progress will positively conduct various solidarity activities denouncing the anachronistic and confrontational nuclear war drills of the US and south Korean war maniacs.

Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) -- The imperialists should not make vain efforts to lead the DPRK to "reform and opening," wasting time, but opt for rolling back all their hostile policies towards it.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday urges this in a bylined article.
The DPRK has nothing to reform or open, it says, and goes on:
"Reform" and "opening" much touted by the imperialists and reactionaries are not "a remedy" for the DPRK to weather its economic difficulties or to revitalize its economy.
Their talk about "reform" and "opening" is aimed at checking the onward movement of the DPRK and isolating and stifling it by blockade.
Their escalating moves to force "reform" and "opening" on the DPRK are a wanton infringement on its sovereignty, shameless interference in its internal affairs and a blatant violation of international law on relations among countries.
The imperialists do not want to change their system but work hard to pressurize others to change their systems as dictated by them. This is an arbitrary and high-handed practice intolerable in the international community.
They must not forget the lesson taught by history. They have run the whole gamut of means and methods to stifle socialism in the DPRK ranging from blockade to threat, pressure, subversive activities and sabotage in the past half a century, but all of them ended in failures.
The imperialists' moves for military aggression against the DPRK and their moves to stifle it are bound to meet a disgraceful fiasco in the future, too. -0-
Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) -- The United States and the south Korean authorities are contemplating staging again adventurous Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises from August 16 to 26 despite the unanimous desire of the people at home and abroad for peace on the Korean Peninsula.
In view of such situation sparking another danger of war on the peninsula, the Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People's Army Sunday sent the U.S. and the south Korean authorities the following open letter reflecting the unanimous will of the army and the people of the DPRK:
Peace is the strong desire and invariable requirement of the army and the people of the DPRK.
It is, however, long since the situation on the peninsula inched close to a touch-and-go situation, after going beyond the fragile state of armistice.
Such trend of the situation is attributable to the hostile policy enforced by the U.S. toward the DPRK, failing to match its words with its deeds and the anti-DPRK policy of confrontation followed by the south Korean authorities, toeing its line. It is, at the same time, a direct product of the evermore undisguised war hysteria kicked up by the military warmongers against the north, pursuant to it.
The Ulji Freedom Guardian is part of this hysteria for a war of aggression against the north.
This can be explained by the fact that the projected joint saber-rattling will be dangerous war maneuvers to be staged by the U.S. and the south Korean military warmongers in accordance with newly revised and supplemented war scenario against the north. This can also be evidenced by the fact that the projected joint exercises would be all-out nuclear war maneuvers involving modern war hardware including improved nuclear attack means and huge aggressor forces and even local administrative organs and non-governmental enterprises.
What should not go unnoticed is the fact that they are going to stage such reckless saber-rattling though they must know well the resentment and hatred of the servicepersons and people of the DPRK and their determination to take revenge upon the military warmongers of south Korea for their hideous provocations are running high.
The KPA Panmunjom Mission is authorized to raise the following principled demands to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities in view of the prevailing grave situation:
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should show the DPRK the will for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula by making a bold policy decision to cancel the projected joint military exercises.
If they stage actions of blackmailing against the other party by mobilizing even the group of super-large nuclear aircraft carrier and strategic nuclear strike flying corps, while urging someone to show sincere attitude towards denuclearization, this will amount to breaching the principle of simultaneous action for denuclearization.
The denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula cannot be achieved by denuclearizing one side only.
This should be comprehensive and fair denuclearization including the removal of nuclear threats to the DPRK.
The army and people of the DPRK are not what they used to be in the past. They do not hide that they have had access to nuclear deterrent powerful enough to protect themselves.
If the other party launches a nuclear war, the DPRK is ready to counter it with nukes. It is its solemn declaration.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities had better face up to the changed situation and properly understand who their rival is. They should show their willingness to denuclearize the peninsula in the eyes of the world by canceling the projected nuclear war exercises.
2. By canceling the exercises the U.S. and the south Korean authorities should make a bold practical decision to replace the armistice system by a peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula.
War and peace can never go together.
Nothing is more shameless political artifice than showing such poor double-dealing tactics as making preparations for a war behind the scene while paying lip-service to peace and dialogue.
The annual repetition of such war provocation actions as the Ulji Freedom Guardian would only keep the evil cycle of mistrust and confrontation and this is bound to lead to a war.
The U.S. and south Korea are gravely mistaken if they think they would remain safe in case of a war on the Korean Peninsula.
If a war breaks out, the DPRK will lose the military demarcation line and gain national reunification, the cherished desire of the nation. The DPRK is full of confidence and optimism about it.
If the U.S. has true willingness to replace the armistice system by a peace-keeping mechanism, it should show its practical willingness to do so at home and abroad as a big power by canceling the joint military maneuvers for this year at least.
3. The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should officially show their willingness to normalize the DPRK-U.S. relations and the inter-Korean relations by canceling the projected joint military exercises.
The normalization process should begin with ending the hostile relations.
To call for reconciliation, cooperation and improvement of relations and then to stage war exercises to do harm to the other side would be the height of double-dealing tactics.
The U.S. incurred the towering grudge of Koreans and the south Korean authorities ruined the June 15 era, bringing untold pain to the people. But the army and people of the DPRK are ready to subordinate everything to the great cause of peace, reunification, reconciliation and cooperation.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should no longer commit such a policy error as misjudging the will of the DPRK.
Upcoming August 15 is supposed to offer a new watershed for the improvement of the relations between the north and the south. In the light of the public expectation for this, it would mean the total denial of the improvement of the relations if they start the joint military exercises against the DPRK from Aug. 16.
Frankly speaking, as far as the issue of improving the DPRK-U.S. relations and the inter-Korean relations is concerned, the U.S. and south Korea is more pressed for time than the DPRK.
The DPRK has so far followed its path without having had its relations normalized with the U.S. and south Korea and it will thrive and live better off in the future, too.
They must officially make public their willingness to cancel the military exercises targeted against the army and people of the DPRK, if they want to normalize the relations with the DPRK.
The army and people of the DPRK remain unchanged in their will and stand to counter the said exercises with the toughest stand.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should behave with discretion, cogitate and choose a wise way-out at the crossroads of dialogue or confrontation and peace or war.
The army and people of the DPRK look forward to a positive response to their just call. -0-

Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) -- The south Korean daily Dong-A Ilbo August 5 carried an article saying a south Korean prisoner, 43, shouted "Long live great General
The article says:
On June 30 this year, the man, surnamed Hwang, was taken to court No. 410 of Suwon District Court, for the final hearing of the appeal after being charged with violation of the National Security Law (NSL).
He was arrested in December 2010 and brought to justice on suspicion that he posted some 380 materials and 6 videos praising the north's social system on a website in August 2007.
In the final trial, his sentence was reduced to one year from one and half year.
The moment the judge was coming out of the court room, Hwang abruptly shouted "Long live great General
The Kyonggi Provincial Police launched a re-investigation of Hwang's case in a bid to charge him with violation of NSL prohibiting praises of the north.
During the interrogation, he said, "I wanted to speak highly of the north in the court and I did it on the trial day because I thought it was an appropriate day. If what I did is reported by media and known to young people and generations to come, I will be remembered as a praiseworthy man."
"My homeland is north Korea, and south Korea is governed by a puppet regime. I think the six-month reduction is a shame to me".
Hwang, a university graduate, was employed by a big construction business. The police was surprised by an ordinary worker unhesitatingly praising the north and slandering the south.
After a month-long investigation, the police again made a non-restraint arrest of Hwang on August 1 for his intention to praise the north.
The head of the first investigation group of the Kyonggi Provincial Police Agency, Pak Tal Sun, said, "Prisoners speaking highly of
Pyongyang, August 6 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities are trying to implicate the DPRK in the "spy ring case", the largest-ever cooked up after the emergence of the present "government."
The Intelligence Service and police of south Korea kicked off an unprecedented repressive campaign, charging that progressive forces and those related to the reunification movement including the chief editor of magazine Minjok 21 and the representative of Chongchun, an Internet broadcasting service under the Solidarity for Implementing the South-North Joint Declaration, conducted "espionage" at the "instruction of the north".
This serious provocation revealed the fin de siecle symptom of the fascist group obsessed by confrontation with fellow countrymen.
The south Korean authorities are now finding themselves in a tight corner for the acts of treachery committed since they came to power. They seek to find a way-out of it in orchestrating a shocking "case."
The successive south Korean rulers have been engrossed in provoking the DPRK. Whenever they found themselves in crises, they cooked up anti-DPRK cases and used them for stoking hostility toward the fellow countrymen in the DPRK while escalating confrontation and war moves. This was their trite artifice.
This year the south Korean Court declared non-guilty Mr. Jo Pong Am, former leader of the Progressive Party, who was executed on the charge of his alleged involvement in "a spy ring case" 52 years ago. This was just part of tragedies showing the preposterous nature of "spy ring cases" and the like fabricated by the south Korean authorities.
At a time when the expectation for dialogue between the north and the south is running high, the south Korean puppet group is employing a hackneyed method, defying the requirement of the reality. This only brings into bolder relief their wretched plight of being mired by the worst ruling crisis.
The recent case brought to light the true colors of the puppet conservative group who stakes its fate on escalated confrontation with fellow countrymen.It is quite natural that the south Koreans are denouncing the harsh suppression of the progressive forces and those related to the reunification movement as "hunting" of the ordinary people desirous of national reunification by dint of "the National Security Law." -0
Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) -- The south Korean fascist authorities' fabrication of the "spy ring case" is a premeditated plot to brutally suppress and stamp out the pro-reunification movement organizations and progressive figures incurring their displeasure by linking them to the DPRK.
Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in a bylined commentary.
Whenever the successive fascist dictators of south Korea found themselves in their extreme ruling crisis, they cooked up "spy ring cases" in a bid to divert the people's attention elsewhere and justify their suppression of progressive forces. This was the trite artifice employed by them, the commentary notes, and goes on:
In recent years, the conservative authorities have blocked the democratic development of the society, brought the economy to ruin, deteriorated the people's living and pushed the inter-Korean relations to a total collapse through the harshest fascist dictatorial rule and escalated confrontation with the DPRK. The resentment and hatred of the people from all walks of life for them have reached the height. The "National Assembly election" and the "presidential election" are expected to take place in south Korea next year. They aim to take these elections as platforms for throwing overboard those conservative forces for having enforced a misrule quite contrary to public mind-set.
Thrown into the abyss of utter isolation and ruin, they are seeking a way out of it in orchestrating a shocking "case."The south Korean public is now becoming increasingly vocal demanding the authorities make a switchover in their anachronistic "policy toward the north" as required by the trend of the times and opting for mending the inter-Korean relations. The above-said case was cooked up by the ultra-right conservative forces in south Korea who have so far stuck to the policy of escalating the confrontation under the signboard of "adhering to principles." This case is aimed to throw a wet blanket over the public calling for the improved inter-Korean relations and justify their existing stand. -0

South Korea's external debt is $370 billion dollars (or $7,400 per head of population and its internal debt is $319 billion dollars. South Korea's debts are actually much higher than at the the time of the IMF bailout in 1998.
South Korea belongs to the imperialist controlled IMF , World Bank, World Trade Oganisation ,the G20 and APEC.
It has a number of shackling economic agreements with the US and recently conclude a so called "Free Trade Agreement ". South Korea is a playground for the transnational corporations of international monopoly capitalism . Here is a by no means exhaustive or comphrensive list of foreign companies in south Korea . Nor does it give a full picture of south Korea's dependency and domination by foreign companies as some 'south Korean' companies are either wholly owned by foreign capital such as the Korea Exchange Bank (bought by Lone Star of the US) or the Shinhan Corporation in which foreign banks have a stake or Samsung which is 82% foreign owned.

One country in the world stands out as being unaffected by the world capitalist crisis , the DPRK . The Russian paper Pravada . ru commented
"North Korea, or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, most likely does not suffer from the world financial crisis.....North Korea does not suffer from the world economic crisis indeed. There are no market institutions in the country, no joint-stock companies and no stock markets. In addition, North Korea is practically a self-sufficient nation" . It is a fact that no DPRK bank needed to bailed out . The DPRK does not have a massive budget deficit , its public spending is not financed by borrowing but by profits from state owned industry . In fact in the last financial year budgetary revenue exceeded expenditure by 1.4 % On the Korean peninsula it was the neo-colonial puppet dependent puppet economy of south Korea that had to be bailed out by the IMF in 1998 . Todays it's external debt is $370 billion dollars and the internal public debt is 319 billion dollars . The socialist planned economy of the DPRK means that it does not suffer from the cyclic crisis of capitalism . The DPRK has its own stable currency the DPRK Won The Juche -based independent economy of the DPRK means that it is immune from the financial turmoil sweeping the world. .This a great achievement of the Juche idea.
It is hoped that one day the Juche Idea Study Group of Ireland will hold a public meeting
Pyongyang, August 4 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) issued information bulletin No. 977 Thursday denouncing the south Korean public security authorities for cooking up "spy ring case."
The bulletin says:
The south Korean fascist security authorities including the Intelligence Service and prosecution have kicked off a wholesale repression of pro-reunification patriots in south Korea after cooking up "spy ring case."
They arrested lots of people of opposition parties and those from all social standings including trade unions, academic and economic circles, talking about "contacts" and presenting "material evidence." They are investigating those people in a bid to persecute them.
The CPRK Secretariat denounces the "spy ring case" fabricated by the south Korean puppet group as a fascist suppression of pro-reunification and patriotic forces in south Korea and another serious provocation to the DPRK.
The "spy ring case" is a groundless farce.
As for "material evidence" put up by them, they were already made public through south Korean media and Internet. What they called "list" is also a sheer fabrication.
The security authorities named the "underground party" organization this or that, provoking the laughter of the people.
It is a trite method traditionally used by the puppet group to cook up "spy ring cases" whenever it faced serious ruling crises.
South Korea is on the verge of catastrophe due to the puppet group's despicable policy of sycophancy and treachery, its moves for confrontation with fellow countrymen, unpopular rule and corruption and irregularities. The people's wrath and grudge against the authorities are running high.
The south Koreans from all walks of life are waging unflinching anti-"government" actions, determined to vote down the puppet group in the "National Assembly" and "presidential" elections slated for next year.
By fabricating such shocking cases as "spy ring case" and kicking off a repressive campaign, the puppet security authorities seek to distract the mindset of the broad masses from the failed domestic and foreign policies and stalled north-south relations and divert elsewhere the attention of the public opinion. It also seeks to tide over the crisis by branding the progressive forces as "pro-communist" and "pro-north" forces and thus ensure the conservative group's maintenance of power.
Another aim sought by the group is to turn down the public demand for improving the north-south relations and making a switchover in the "north policy" and maintain the policy of escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen.
No wonder, the "spy ring case" met a strong rebuff from the south Korean opposition parties and people from all social strata. They are dismissing the case as a "base and despicable farce", a "plot to stamp out the progressive forces" and "part of campaign for next year's general and presidential elections".
The recent case brought to light the true colors of the conservative group keen on stoking confrontation against reunification.
The fascist security authorities are gravely mistaken if they think they can mislead the public opinion and tide over the ruling crisis through such sordid farce.
Their last-ditch efforts will only invite bitterer censure at home and abroad and provoke stronger protest by the people.
The south Korean conservative group had better immediately stop the mean farce and suppression of the pro-reunification and patriotic figures. -0-
Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) -- President
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a bylined article.
It goes on:
He newly clarified the essence of the world revolution with main emphasis on independence, the life and soul of human being as a social being. This helped clearly explain the fact that the ultimate goal of the world revolution is to fully realize the independence of the popular masses worldwide and roundly expose the absurdity and injustice of sophism of the modern revisionists and their mouthpieces that advocated compromise with imperialism, talking about "priority to the value of the whole mankind" and "community linked by the common destiny."
The President made a scientific formulation for the first time in history that the struggle for making the whole world independent means, in essence, establishing international relations based on independence and democratizing the international community. He, at the same time, lucidly explained that making the whole world independent is a common task facing the world people in our times.
He also clarified that the driving force for the world revolution is the world people advocating independence and they comprise all the anti-imperialist independent forces advocating independence against imperialism and hegemony including the socialist countries, national liberation movement in colonies, the Non-Aligned Movement and the world peace movement.
He explained from a new angle that imperialism and hegemony going against the trend of the present times towards independence are the world people's common targets of struggle and the main targets of the world revolution. The main strategy of the world revolution and principled issues and ways for carrying it out comprehensively indicated by the President made it possible to formulate a scientific strategy and tactics for winning the victory of the world revolution and for it to take the road of fresh great surge. -0-
President Kim Il Sung Crosses the Amnok River
with an Aim to Liberate the Country
President Kim Il Sung Delivers a Speech at a Mass Meeting
Held in Pyongyang in Honour of Him (Oct. 14, 1945)
President Kim Il Sung’s Immortal Feats of Liberating Korea
On August 15, 1945 Korea was liberated from the brutal colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists. On that historical day, Korea was seething with the emotion and joy of the liberation and all the fellow countrymen, men and women, old and young, paid high tribute to General Kim Il Sung, peerless patriot and the great sun of the nation who dispelled the misfortune of the ruined country and brought the spring of national resurrection to them.
At that time the august name of General Kim Il Sung was called as the symbol of liberated Korea and savior of the nation’s destiny.
Today President Kim Il Sung is called the founder of socialist Korea and the Korean nation displays its dignity and honour throughout the world as Kim Il Sung’s nation.
Every country and nation has its patriots and heroes, but there is no such a peerless patriot and hero of all ages as President Kim Il Sung who embarked on the road of revolution in his early teens and achieved the historical cause of country’s liberation defeating the brigandish Japanese imperialists armed to their teeth weathering out all the hardships for 20 years.
Therefore, until today the south Korean people harbor the ardent admiration to venerate, extol and follow President Kim Il Sung as the benefactor of Korea’s liberation.
In south Korea, the President’s history of anti-Japanese armed struggle is described in encyclopedias and represented in the style of artistic works, and publications and internet media introduce the President’s reminiscences “With the Century” to give wide publicity to his exploits of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle.
The world progressives, too, highly respect and praise President Kim Il Sung as a genius of military strategy and brilliant commander unprecedented in human history.
Internet homepages and publications of progressive organizations in the world are vying with each other to widely propagate the glorious revolutionary history and undying feats of President Kim Il Sung who led to a shining victory the anti-Japanese war, with his pictures.
Thanks to leader Kim Jong Il, the heaven-sent brilliant commander born of Mt. Baekdu, great President Kim Il Sung’s exploits of liberating the country are shining bright.
Great leader Kim Jong Il is honorably defending the nation’s dignity and sovereignty from the imperialist allied forces’ vicious moves to isolate, stifle and invade the DPRK, and wisely leading the building of a thriving nation on the strength of the great Songun politics.
He has energetically promoted the nation’s movement of independent reunification by smashing the challenge and obstructive moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad with the arms of Songun.
As the new morning of Korea’s liberation dawned 66 years ago thanks to President Kim Il Sung, with leader Kim Jong Il the cause of Korea’s reunification will be achieved for sure.
