The timing of the Hoguk exercise

Why have the agggressive Hoguk exercises of the south Korean fascist puppets and the aggressive US imperialists been brought forward . In 2010 they were held late in November . Why they started on the 25th of October to conclude on the 2nd November. The answer is that so they can provoke an incident just before the US presidential election and blame it on the DPRK.

UK KFA slam Hoguk 2012

UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
London 30th of October
The UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a statement denouncing the ongoing   Hoguk military exercise by the south Korean puppet military and a number of US imperialist aggressor troops.
                             UK KFA and all peace-loving peoples are deeply concerned and apprehensive about the holding of the Hoguk exercise because the Hoguk exercise in 2010provoked the Yongphyong island incident. We ask do the south Korean rightist conservatives plan to provoke a second Yongyphyong Incident ? Do they really want another Yongyphyong incident so they can running crying to their US masters they have been attacked ? 
 The situation on the Korean peninsula is strained to breaking point due to the massive build-up of military hardware and numerous provocations by the south Korean puppets egged on by their US overlords.

Any provocations could spark a military clash which would quickly turn into a second Korean war and then a world war. The demand of the times is for the relaxation of tension, peace and reunification but the Hoguk exercises of the south Korean authorities and US imperialists go totally against this. The previous regime in south Korea had agreed under the auspices of the October 4th declaration to make the West Sea of Korea , a zone of peace and co-operation but instead the Lee Myung Bak ultra rightists have turned the West Sea into a zone of confrontation by holding exercises such as Hoguk as well screaming for the "defence" of the illusory "northern limit line " which no one recognises.


We, the UK Korean Friendship Association, demand that Hoguk is halted at once and that the south Korean fascist puppets and US imperialists cease their provocations against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

U.S., S. Korea Slammed for Tightening anti-DPRK Nexus: CPRK Secretariat

Pyongyang, October 27 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) released information bulletin No. 1013 Saturday as regards the U.S. and the south Korean authorities' ever-more tightened nexus against the DPRK.
The information bulletin says:
Shortly ago, the former external strategy planner of Chongwadae, the chief of Information Headquarters of the Defence Ministry, chief of the "headquarters for negotiations for peace on Korean Peninsula" of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and others flocked to the U.S. There they met with the U.S. Special Representative for north Korea Policy of the State Department, the assistant secretary of State for East Asia and the Pacific, the Asia adviser of the National Security Council of White House, information authorities and experts on the Korean Peninsula and discussed "cooperation initiatives" and north's nuclear issue before the "presidential elections" in south Korea.
On Oct. 24, the south Korean minister of Defense held "security consultative meeting" with those concerned of the U.S. Defense Department in the U.S. They talked about joint counteraction while calling for establishing "tailored deterrence strategy to cope with the north's nuclear and missile threats".
In the meantime, the vice-minister of the U.S. State Department, the special representative for north Korea Policy of State Department and the special human rights envoy for north Korea flew to Seoul to hold a confab with relevant officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Ministry of Unification, Saenuri Party, experts on DPRK as well as human scum obsessed by escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen.
Serious is that the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime through those frequent visits and confabs loudly talked about "story about the north's provocation" while saying that the north's additional provocation is highly possible and the stable control of the Korean Peninsula is necessary.
This is shameful sophism distorting the truth and misleading the public opinion, another intolerable provocation against the DPRK.
As shown by the grave situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula, the U.S. and the Lee Myung Bak regime are harasser of peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and provoker.
The U.S. provided the puppet regime with more missile capacity to use it as a shock brigade in igniting a war on the peninsula at any cost. It is now keen on anti-DPRK war racket by reintroducing the U.S. chemical unit that had been withdrawn from south Korea and massively amassing precision guided shells and other lethal weapons and war hardware.
At the tacit connivance and instigation of the U.S, traitor Lee Myung Bak made invectives slandering the dignity and social system of the DPRK almost every day and even staged confrontation farce on Yonphyong Island where the north and the south stand in acute confrontation.
The puppet regime prodded defectors to the south to scatter leaflets defaming the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, and the puppet military warmongers intruded into territorial waters of the DPRK side and opened fire at civilian fishing boats. They even staged frantic DPRK-targeted war exercises dubbed Hoguk.
This notwithstanding, the U.S. and the south Korean regime are working hard for closer nexus against the DPRK under the pretext of "provocation" and "stable control of Korean Peninsula". This is a shameless act reminding one of a thief crying "Stop the thief".
The U.S. master and the south Korean stooge are intensifying nexus while peddling the absurd "story about the north's provocation" before the "presidential elections". Their sinister aim is to fake up "northward wind" and extend the tenure of the pro-U.S. conservative regime.
The "presidential election" in south Korea is vital for the U.S. in continuing its DPRK policy and furthering the strategy of focusing on Asia by extending the stay of the regime in power.
The south Korean regime also urgently needs the U.S. help as the situation turns unfavorable for it before the election.
It is against this backdrop that the U.S. and the south Korean regime raised the fictitious "story about the north's provocation" and tightened conspiracy and collusion for the pro-U.S. conservative regime's stay in power.
This is a clumsy farce going against the trend of the times and history.
Their anti-DPRK confrontation racket will precipitate their miserable end.
The U.S. should stop straining tension and destroying peace on the peninsula and its policy of favoring the south Korean regime and antagonizing the DPRK as it will not be beneficial to the DPRK-U.S. relations and the regional situation.
The broad segment of the south Koreans should clearly see through the sinister aim sought by the south Korean regime and the U.S. in tightening nexus, and wage unflinching actions to deter the pro-U.S. conservative regime from taking power. -0-

ASSPUK & JISGE DENOUNCE HOGUK EXERCISE !

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

                      London 27th of October Juche 101
        The Association For the Study of Songun Politics and Juche Idea Study Group of England today issued a joint statement condemning the aggressive and provocative "Hoguk" exercise to be staged by the US imperialist aggressor forces and the south Korean puppet fascist armed forces which began a day ago.

          The Hoguk exercise involves some 240,000 south Korean puppet troops andat least 500 US imperialist aggression troops. Even civilians and police are
involved in Hoguk which is something unusual.  These exercises are bringing the dark and stormy clouds of war to the Korean peninsula as in 2010 the exercises
resulted in the Yongphyong Island incident . As the content of the exercise involves landing operations this can only be a rehearsal for the advance party of an invasion of the DPRK and attempt at seizing control of the DPRK and stifling people centred Juche Socialism by force of arms.It constitutes the rounding off of preparations to invade the DPRK and destroy it.

  The Hoguk exercise is being carried out at a time when the US imperialists and south Korean puppets have intensified psychological warfare against the DPRK
and are wildly slandering the people-centred socialist system of the DPRK. There can be no doubt that Hoguk is aimed at so-called regime change, a criminal and aggressive act against the DPRK.


            The Hoguk exercise is being carried within a context of increasing tension and arms build-up against the DPRK. Recently the US and south announced that the range of south Korean missiles would be nearly tripled to 800km. All kinds of military hardware such  Mine Resistant vehicles and AWACS planes are being imported into south Korea.  Hoguk follows on the heels of other exercises such as Ulji Freedom Guardian , RIMPAC and Foal Eagle. The Hoguk exercise is a most dangerous one as it could be the flashpoint of a second Korean war which in turn could become a third world war. Progressive and peace-loving people ignore this at their peril !
            These exercises prove the falsity of the so-called "peace" loudly advertised by the US imperialists.  They show that the aggressive nature of US imperialism does not change and that a wolf cannot become a lamb. As the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un said
"Peace is very valuable for our Party and the government of the DPRK that are making efforts to attain the general goal of building a thriving nation and improving the people’s living standards. But, more valuable for us are the nation’s dignity and the country’s independence."

               The US imperialist and Lee Myung Bak puppet clique must give up their schemes for confrontation with the DPRK.We call on the US imperialists and south Korean puppets to halt these exercises at once !

   We stand should to shoulder with Peoples Korea the land of Juche dignified with Songun the true people centred socialist country.We call on world progressives and Juche idea and Songun idea followers to campaign against the aggressive Hoguk exercise
KOREA IS ONE!
YANKEES OUT!
DOWN WITH LEE MYUNG BAK PUPPET REGIME
LONG LIVE THE DPRK!

PICKET OF SOUTH KOREAN EMBASSY

PICKET OF SOUTH KOREAN EMBASSY THURSDAY 1ST OF NOVEMBER 2012
FREE MR RO SU HUI !
TIME 4-30PM
PLACE SOUTH KOREAN EMBASSY 60 BUCKINGHAM GATE LONDON SW1
NEAREST TUBE VICTORIA


                                          Mr Ro was arrested and detained by the south Korean fascist puppets under the so-called "National Security Law" of south Korea. The NSL punishes south Korean people for visiting north Korea or sympathising with it in anyway. The NSL is  fascist and a throwback to a by-gone era. The NSL is very much reminiscent of Nazi Germany , 1950s McCarthyite America and Apartheid south Africa. The NSL is also  a block to inter-Korean relations, reconciliation and  and reunification.
                     Mr Ro has committed no crime whatsoever. He simply visited one part of his own country which has been artificially divided by outside forces (chiefly US imperialism).  We ask why is the south Korean regime so afraid of its people visiting the Democratic People's Republic of Korea ?.

Our demands are simple and straightforward - the unconditional release of Mr Ro Su Hui and the dropping of any charges against him.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Denounces U.S. Official′s Anti-DPRK Remarks

Pyongyang, October 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA Thursday as regards anti-DPRK invectives made by U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Policy Glyn Davis:
A few days ago he, touring areas around the DPRK, said that it would be a big blunder for the DPRK if it scraps the September 19 joint statement and it should opt for implementing its obligation. He also called for suspending missile and nuclear weapons development and said he hoped there would not be any provocation.
It is illogical for the U.S. to urge the DPRK to honor its obligation while it is not complying with what it committed to do in the September 19 joint statement.
The statement specifies the U.S. political, military and economic commitments to fundamentally end its hostile policy toward the DPRK as a chief culprit of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S., quite contrary to its commitments in the joint statement, wantonly violated the sovereignty of the DPRK and openly and systematically stepped up military threats and economic sanctions against it.
The increased U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK compelled it to bolster its nuclear deterrent both in quality and quantity.
The U.S. oft-repeated "provocation" reveals its fear as a criminal.
In fact, provocation has been committed by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime which have resorted to military threats to the DPRK and the moves of scattering anti-DPRK leaflets.
It is the consistent and principled stand of the army and people of the DPRK to counter provocation with prompt counterattack and aggression war with just and great war for national reunification.
The U.S. negotiator does not have clear understanding of the essence and the circumstances of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula and is not aware of where threats to peace and stability come from. This makes the prospect of solving the issue gloomier.-0-

Illogicality of the Anti DPRK propaganda lobby

Illogicality of the Anti DPRK propaganda lobby
  



Latest book on the DPRK  by a certain "Victor Cha " is something called "The Impossible State". The very title itself is nonsense . If a state actually exists then it can't be impossible can it or it would not exist ? . Cha talks about "neo-Juche revivalism" but Juche was never abandoned or downplayed by the DPRK. So the book is complete rubbish by someone who does not know what he is talking about.

The Cuban Missile Crisis, Songun and the DPRK

            As it is now 50 years since the US imperialists manufactured the so-called "Cuban missile crisis creating a very tense situation internationally by the use of threat and blackmail. It is deeply relevant to compare and contrast the 1962 Cuban missile crisis with the DPRK nuclear issue and the DPRK's confrontation with US imperialism (the war without gunshots) and drew appropriate lessons from it. The purpose of this article to dwell on the drama of the Cuban missile crisis or Caribbean crisis and reproduce a verbatim history of it as others have done this already. Rather to compare the Soviet revisionist leadership's handling (or mishandling ) of the Cuban missile crisis with the so-called "nuclear issue " of the DPRK and how this was handled by  the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il which is now continued by respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.
            On the 22nd of October 1962 the US imperialists announced that their spy satellites had detected long -range missiles being transported into the Republic of Cuba by the Soviet Union. The US imperialist chieftain Kennedy blustered and threatened the Soviet Union and Cuba. The US announced a blockade of Cuba There was talk of both the invasion of Cuba by the US and a nuclear strike against the USSR. It should be mentioned in passing here that the DPRK under the leadership of the great leader President Kim Il Sung provided internationalist support for Cuba during its hour of need, gave political and military assistance, while sending food and tractors as well as a group of authoritative technicians. The DPRK also publicly supported the 5 -point demands of Premier Fidel Castro which included the US withdrawal from Guantanamo.
 It did not take very long for the modern revisionist Khruschov leadership of the CPSU and USSR  to give into the nuclear blackmail of US imperialism.  On the 28th of October 1962 only 6 days Khruschov announced ""the Soviet government, in addition to previously issued instructions on the cessation of further work at the building sites for the weapons, has issued a new order on the dismantling of the weapons which you describe as 'offensive' and their crating and return to the Soviet Union."

This was an abject surrender to US imperialism. It sent out the message that the socialist camp could be bullied and pushed around by US imperialism . The climbdown in the Cuban Missile crisis put the USSR on the road of slow and gradual self-destruction .Moreover it represented the betrayal of the Cuban revolution . It was an example of a sordid deal between two great powers at the expense of a small country.
         At the time the military strength of the USSR had been considerable . It had roughly the same number of nuclear warheads and had armed forces of about 3 million plus those of its Warsaw Pact allies. There is no logical military reason to give into the US.
   The DPRK was a much smaller country than the USSR , its population was about one twentieth of that of the USSR , its armed forces where greatly outnumbered by those of the US imperialists. The DPRK under the wise leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung maintained a strong militant anti-imperialist stance and independent stance, always upholding the slogan of the KPA "let us wipe out the US imperialist aggressors sworn enemy of the Korean people" . This was quite unlike the USSR which under the baton of the bungling revisionist coward  advocated peaceful co-existence with US imperialism and at the same time abandoned class struggle against internal enemies of socialism by declaring a a "state of the whole people" abandoning the dictatorship of the proletariat. Under the banner of Juche the DPRK maintained independence . Though the  USSR was a great power its leadership were not only seized with fear of US imperialism but Khruschov and later Gorbachov worshipped US imperialism. Visiting the DPRK in 1993 a DPRK professor told me a story about Khruschov's flunkeyism towards US imperialism. Khruschov visiting the USA  got mesmerised by the sight of some maize growing so begged Kennedy to give him some maize seeds. Kennedy was happy to oblige. The maize seeds were duly planted in the USSR but instead of a bumper harvest there was massive crop failure because the seeds were the wrong kind for Russian soil.
     The DPRK maintaining stalwart independence under the banner of Juche won confrontations with US imperialism during the "Pueblo" incident in 1968, the EC121 incident in 1969 and the Panmunjom incident in 1976.
                         The US imperialists planned several times to use nuclear weapons against the DPRK and brought into south Korea a 1000 nuclear weapons. The US imperialists created the so -called nuclear issue against the DPRK to bring pressure to bear on it. US warmonger Bush branded the socialist DPRK as part of an "axis of evil " , "an outpost of tyranny " and  listed the DPRK as a target of pre-emptive nuclear attack. The DPRK under the wise leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il the sun of Songun decided to have access to a nuclear deterrent. It carried out a scientific test on the  9th of October 2006  and a second one on the 25th of May 2009. These shook US imperialism to its foundations . The DPRK not only defied the US imperialists but also certain sold -out big powers who did not want the DPRK to have its own independent nuclear deterrent.  Rather than give into US imperialism in a matter of a mere 6 days the DPRK has retained its nuclear deterrent and has been a proud socialist nuclear power of Juche for 6 years . On the 25th of May 2009 the DPRK conducted its second nuclear test successfully. What a contrast this is to sold-out Soviet revisionism ! Thus is the proud fruit of the Songun politics and Songun idea first elaborated by the great leader President Kim Il Sung and applied and developed in depth by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il the eternal chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission.
                       On the 23 November 2010 the south Korean puppets whose strings were pulled by the American imperialists fired into the territorial waters of the  DPRK. The response of the DPRK was swift and decisive. Yongphyong the base of the south Korean puppets was blasted by the DPRK's artillery leaving it with columns of smoke rising .  Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un commanded the operation himself. It was a great victory over the south Korean puppets who complained to their American bosses and cried for retaliation but there were powerless to do anything and the US did not retaliate on their behalf. The image of the south Korean puppets was even poorer than before. They reminded one of a silly naughty child throwing stones at their neighbours house , only to get slapped hard around the head by the angry neighbour only to run crying to the parent(the US imperialists ) shouting "mummy, daddy the neighbour hit me on the head"  , only to find that the parents not could do  anything to help.

         How was the DPRK which has a population of one twentieth of the US, an area a fraction of the size of the US and armed forces much smaller that those of the  US able to withstand US imperialist pressure and blackmail when others such the old USSR were not able to do so. The answer is first of all, it was down to the Juche idea created by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung achieves Juche it can defeat a powerful enemy. Juche meant that the DPRK maintain a rugged and unyielding independence. Secondly, the single hearted unity of the masses, party and leader which is more powerful than an atomic. Thirdly, the miliant anti-imperialist revolutionary spirit ; the KPA of the DPRK is the only armed force in the world to uphold the slogan "Let us annihilate  the US imperialist aggressors sworn enemy of the Korean people " , the recent statement of the DPRK NDC reiterated this.
The great leader comrade  Kim Il Sung made sure the DPRK rejected the line of unprincipled compromise with US imperialism saying
"Just as the brutish nature of a wolf cannot change, so the aggressive nature of imperialism can never change. Catch a wolf cub and raise it; the beast will still do harm to people and flee into the mountains when it grows up. If the aggressive nature of imperialism changed, it would mean that imperialism had already ceased to exist. So long as imperialism remains, its aggressive nature will remain. We should categorically reject the allegation of the revisionists that the aggressive nature of imperialism has changed."
                                The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il continued with this line declaring "Expect No Change from me " . Thirdly, the Songun revolutionary line of giving priority to the army as the lifeline of the revolution underpinned the line of Juche and independence.  Lastly but most importantly it was because of the outstanding quality of the leadership of the DPRK . A great leader produces a a great ideology and great nation . The three great leaders of Mt Paektu , President Kim Il Sung, eternal Chairman Kim Jong Il and dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un have all led the DPRK into becoming a might socialist power capable of facing down US imperialism and being a nation that can say what it likes and likes what it says.

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Adhering to Juche Character and National Identity

Pyongyang, October 22 (KCNA) -- It is a fundamental principle for accomplishing the socialist cause to adhere to Juche character and national identity in the revolution and construction, says Rodong Sinmun on Monday in a bylined article.
Every country and nation should adhere to Juche character and national identity in the revolution and construction now that imperialists and reactionaries are running the whole gamut of moves to obstruct the human cause of independence, the cause of socialism, the article notes, and goes on:
Adhering to Juche character means that the popular masses carve out the destiny of their country and nation independently and creatively as masters. And holding fast to national identity means they preserve and develop the peculiar and advantageous features of their nation and embody them in all fabrics of social life.
The cause of socialism is an independent revolutionary cause which advances and is accomplished thanks to the struggle of the popular masses for achieving independence.
The imperialists and reactionaries are blatantly challenging the human cause of independence, the cause of socialism, while desperately disturbing the independent development of other countries and nations.
If a country and nation fail to adhere to Juche character and national identity under such situation, they may not only allow themselves applying other's prescription unsuitable to them but make it impossible to protect their history, tradition and custom and, moreover, they may put the sovereignty of the country and the nation's destiny at peril.
The world progressives should wage a dynamic struggle to embody Juche character and national identity, bearing deep in mind the truth of history that doing so is a key issue on which hinges success or failure of revolution and construction and a fundamental principle for accomplishing the socialist cause. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA fully support DPRK stance against SK puppet provocations !

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
   
                                                    21st October Juche 101(2012)
The Association for the  Study of Songun Politics UK , Juche Idea Study Group of England  and UK Korean Friendship Association  today issued the following statement. We wish to add our strong support to the statements made by the Policy Department of the  National Defence Commission of the DPRK and the Western Front Command of the Korean People's Army.

The south Korean puppets instigated and backed by the US imperialists  are now aggravating the situation in the West Sea of Korea to the extreme making the outbreak of war likely and are also carrying viscous psychological warfare against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

                                 These deeply provocative moves have coincided with the visit of Nazi-like south Korean puppet rat Lee Myung Bak to the five islands in the West sea  , calling for the so-called defence of the illusory and bogus "northern limit line ". It has been proved over and over that the "northern limit line " has no validity in international law as it was simply imposed by the US imperialists without negotiation or consultation with the DPRK . Thus Lee's bluster about the northern limit line simply shows that south Korea in cahoots with its masters the US imperialists plan to start a second Korean war against the DPRK with the aim of destroying the DPRK by force and extending  the colonial rule of US imperialism to the northern half of Korea.
                  As part of the campaign of psychological warfare which is the prelude to actual physical war as has been proved by the cases of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere .  The stance of the Western Front Command of the Korean People's Army in countering this insidious campaign of the south Korean puppets is a correct one. It is absurd for the Western media parroting the south Korean puppets  to talk about "activists " to describe  miserable traitors, fascists and paid stooges.

     We reiterate our conviction that should the south Korean puppets and their US imperialist backers start  a war , then it will be the end of them and Korea will be reunified under the ever-victorious leadership of dear respected Marshal
Kim Jong Un.

Lee Myung Bak′s Crying Out for Defending NLL Censured

Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Institute for Disarmament and Peace of the DPRK Foreign Ministry Saturday released the following statement:
The south Korean puppet forces have reached the extremes in their attempt to fix the illegal "northern limit line" (NLL) as the north-south maritime demarcation line in the West Sea of Korea, the most acute hotspot between the north and the south.
Traitor Lee Myung Bak, who toured Yonphyong Island on Oct. 18, let loose a spate of remarks that "it is necessary to defend NLL till the country is unified". Timing to coincide with this, voices that NLL can not become a target of compromise and negotiations under any circumstances are being heard among the south Korean military warmongers.
As well known to the world, NLL is an illegal maritime boundary line unilaterally drawn in the West Sea by Clark, the then commander of the "UN Forces" on August 30, 1953 right after the Korean War, without negotiations with the DPRK, a party to the Korean Armistice Agreement. So, it is a bogus line quite contrary to the AA without any international legal ground.
The unilateral and illegal NLL was admitted by the U.S. and the south Korean authorities in the 1970s and they have said it is in breach of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
In 1975 the U.S. secretary of State confessed that the unilateral setting of NLL is certainly a violation of international law and afterwards several politicians of the U.S. admitted this.
Recently political, academic and public circles of south Korea said that clarified in the 1992 north-south agreement is the article calling on the north and the south to continue discussing the issue of NLL as this illegal maritime boundary line neither specified in the AA nor agreed by the north and the south has become a seed of disputes.
In the October 4 declaration which was adopted in 2007 the north and the south agreed to set up a special zone for peace and cooperation in the West Sea, aiming to defuse the tension between the north and the south produced by NLL unilaterally drawn by the U.S.
The DPRK has never recognized the illegal NLL drawn by the U.S. in a brigandish manner and will never accept it in the future, either.
The seed of distrust sowed by the U.S. is becoming the biggest time bomb which will bring another all-out war to the Korean Peninsula.
The south Korean authorities without any knowledge about the background of the creation of NLL, are undisguisedly letting loose a spate of balderdash that "it is necessary to defend NLL at the risk of lives". This is nothing but a petty trick to conceal their crimes as they overturned the past north-south agreements on turning the West Sea into a zone for peace and cooperation and brought the north-south relations to catastrophe during their office.
Lee is making foolish efforts to reverse the unfavorable condition of his group at any cost with the "presidential election" near at hand and improve his image as the "president who contributed to defending the territory".
But he would be well advised to know that such a petty trick will invite bigger disaster.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities had better clearly understand that the army and people of the DPRK are closely watching every move of the south Korean belligerent forces and in case any provocation is made under the pretext of NLL, they are ready to make the West Sea a clear sea of reunified country without any line. -0-

KPA Western Front Command Notifies S. Korea of Possible Physical Strike at Location of Scattering Leaflets

Pyongyang, October 19 (KCNA) -- The Western Front Command of the Korean People's Army released the following notice Friday:
The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors, keen on escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen, is planning to scatter leaflets slandering the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, being unaware of its fate on the verge of ruin.
According to YIN and other media of south Korea, leaflets slandering the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and insulting the noble social system in it will be scattered from Rimjin Pavilion in Phaju City, Kyonggi Province at 11:30 a.m. on October 22.
The south Korean group of traitors said that it would use the Association for Promotion of Democracy of North Korea, a collection of riff-raffs, in the operation with the aim to intensify psychological warfare against the DPRK. It is set to send more than 10 huge balloons carrying the leaflets to areas of the DPRK side.
What matters is that the plan was directly invented by the group of traitors and is being engineered by the south Korean military.
This is an unpardonable challenge to the army and people of the DPRK and a deliberate act aimed to push the north-south ties to the lowest ebb.
The Lee regime considers that aggravated north-south ties before the "presidential election" will be favorable for the conservative forces. Human scum under the patronage of the group has common mentality with the group. This resulted in the undisguised operation of scattering the leaflets.
It is the firm will of the army not to overlook any act of provoking the dignity of the supreme leadership of the country and its social system.
The Western Front Command of the KPA issues following notice upon authorization:
1. Rimjin Pavilion in Phaju City, location from where the puppet forces made public they would send leaflets and its surrounding area will become targets of direct firing of the KPA from now.
The location is the origin of provocation which can never be left as it is and a target of physical strike to be immediately blown away.
2. The moment a minor movement for the scattering is captured in Rimjin Pavilion and in its vicinity, merciless military strike by the Western Front will be put into practice without warning.
Scattering of leaflets amounts to an undisguised psychological warfare, breach of the Korean Armistice Agreement and an unpardonable war provocation.
3. South Korean inhabitants at Rimjin Pavilion and its surrounding area are requested to evacuate in anticipation of possible damage.
The KPA never makes an empty talk. -0-

Any Illusion and Fear of U.S. Imperialists Lead to Death: Rodong Sinmun


Pyongyang, October 18 (KCNA) -- If a nation harbors illusion about the U.S. imperialists, taken in by honeyed words of "peace" and "cooperation", and trembles for fear of their horror strategy, it will be bound to become slaves and meet death, much less achieving independent development.
Rodong Sinmun on Thursday says this in a bylined article.
U.S. imperialism is by no means something to be frightened at, the article notes, and goes on:
The Korean war, the Vietnamese war, etc. in the last century proved that if the leadership, army and people get united single-mindedly and wage a staunch fight against the U.S. imperialists, they can surely defeat them and defend the national sovereignty and dignity.
However, the people who underwent tragedy failed to believe in their strength.
After the demise of the Cold War, those people were cheated by the plausible propaganda of the U.S. imperialists or were afraid of their nuclear blackmail and, accordingly, they failed to properly see through their true colors.
So, they accepted the American-style "view of value" under the pressure of the U.S. imperialists. They carried out "reforms" and "opened" their countries to the U.S. in political, economic, military and other fields.
Those countries suffered disasters in return for meeting the requirements of the U.S. imperialists. They brought these countries nothing but humiliation, disgrace, internal disorder and disputes.
What was more serious was that the army which should defend the security of the country and the people wavered.
Armies of those countries could not prevent their governments from collapsing under their very noses.
When the U.S. imperialists started invasion, service members of a certain country dropped their arms and fled the invaders.
This was the miserable fate of those countries which harbored illusion and fear of the U.S. imperialists.
In order to counter the U.S. imperialists' "appeasement" strategy with a revolutionary principle and independent one against imperialism and react to hard-line actions with the toughest stand it is essential not to have even the slightest illusion and fear of them.
Only when a country or nation achieves the unity of the leadership, army and people and bolster the capacity for self-defence, foiling the U.S. imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare, is it possible to be free from any illusion and fear of them and protect the sovereignty of the country and national dignity. -0-

'Yusin' Dictatorial Forces′ Illegal Fund Management Exposed

Pyongyang, October 16 (KCNA) -- It was exposed that the Park Chung-Hee dictatorial regime of south Korea illegally held a huge amount of funds.
This fact was disclosed as a Korean mediaman in the U.S. on Oct. 7 opened to the press a report on a hearing at U.S. Congress in 1978.
According to it, when the U.S. company intended to take over 25 percent of the stocks of the Hungguk Company of south Korea in 1969, Lee Hoo Rak asked for 200 000 U.S. dollars under the pretext of guarding Park Chung-Hee during his tour of the U.S. before signing a contract. After receiving the funds, Lee Hoo Rak deposited them in a foreign bank in the name of So Jong Gwi, and Park Chung--Hee got them back later which he kept in Chongwadae. The Park regime also held a fabulous amount of secret funds in at least three secret accounts in foreign banks.
After the "yusin" dictator was shot to death, his daughter Park Geun Hye went to a foreign country abroad together with five persons including banking experts and changed the name of the holder of the accounts to be hers. The funds amounted to 6 billion U.S. dollars. This was disclosed by a permanent co-representative of the People's Solidarity against the "Park Chung-Hee Museum".
Opening to public the report, Korean pressman in the U.S. said that the secret funds case is a product of the dirty illegal dealing by which the Park regime gave great interests to the U.S. company, calling for bringing to light the amount of money deposited in foreign banks. -0-

ASSPUK and JISGE statement on the 86th anniversary of the Down-With-Imperialism Union

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
                                         London 14th October Juche 101        
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 the 86th anniversary of the foundation of the Down -With Imperialism Union by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung sun of Juche.

It is 86 years since the revolutionary red banner of Juche was first raised in Korea with the formation of the Down-With Imperialism Union (TD) . The DIU was the first genuine communist revolutionary organisation in Korea The formation of the DIU marked a clean break with the stale dogmas of factionalism and flunkeyism , it was a decisive leap forward in the task of building a revolutionary working-class party in Korea. The foundation of the DIU by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung heralded the dawn of a new era of independence in which the popular masses became masters of their fate.
                    Indeed as the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung said;
"The formation of this union, the first genuine communistic revolutionary organisation in our country , was the historic announcement of a new beginning for our revolution. With the formation of the DIU  our people's revolutionary struggle began to progress with the principle of independence and this was when our Party began to strike its glorious roots"

The DIU proudly proclaimed its aims were to win independence and liberation for Korea, to carry out the socialist revolution in Korea, to build socialism and communism in Korea and to carry out the world revolution. Thus for the first time in history the lines of national liberation and socialist revolution were combined. Moreover the relationship between the national tasks of the working class and its international tasks was affirmed. Both the line of combing national liberation with socialism and the line of inter-relating the national and international tasks of the struggle were a prototype form of the Juche idea of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung.

The DIU was founded on the basis of revolutionary youth and students . The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung had prepared the ground for the formation of the DIU by leading many struggles amongst the youth and students including a strike of school students against reactionary teachers. These struggles fostered core elements of the revolution. It was not formed from the factionalists who indulged in empty talk and who were divorced from the popular masses as they were drawn from the middle class , bourgeoisie and  ruined aristocracy. The DIU fought for the revolution on the basis of independence.

The DIU was the foundation stone of the Workers' Party of Korea. The idea and lines of the Down-Imperialism Union were brilliantly implemented and carried forward by the Workers' Party of Korea founded by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung and developed the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il. As the great
leader comrade Kim Jong Il wrote;
 
Our Party which has followed a unique path since it started to take root with the formation of the DIU is a new type of revolutionary working-class party.
Ours is a Juche-type revolutionary party which is guided by the Juche idea and carried out its revolutionary activities independently and creatively in keeping with the interests of our people and conditions in our country. By establishing Juche thoroughly in all spheres of Party building and activity with the Juche idea as its unalterable guide, it has been able to strengthen and develop into an indestructible revolutionary party.
            The Workers' Party under the leadership of by the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un  is fully carrying forward the ideas and traditions of the DIU under the banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. Recent speeches of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un such as "Only Victory and Glory will be in store for us who are advancing under the Unfurled flag bearing the immortal beaming images of the Great Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung" fully encapsulate the militant anti-imperialist revolutionary spirit of the DIU. We are convinced the idea of the DIU will win final victory under the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.

Report of JISGE and ASSPUK meeting 6th October

The Juche Idea Study Group of England together with the Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK and supported by the UK Korean Friendship Association held a meeting on the 6th of October 2012 a incentral London. .  The director general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea Dr Vishwanath was sent greetings and best wishes to the meeting as he was unable to attend due to illness.
        The meeting was attended by members of the JISGE, ASSPUK and UK KFA. There were people from all walks of life and different ages there. Th. In the audience were students university students , school students, workers, retired school teachers and and  retired people.
                   The chairman opened the meeting '. In his opening remarks he said that the meeting had been arranged to report back from his second visit to the DPRK at the invitation of the KASS and also celebrate the 67th anniversary of the foundation of the Workers' Party . The speaker said that the Korean people would shortly celebrate the 15th anniversary of the election of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il as general secretary of the WPK, the 67th anniversary of the foundation of the WPK and 86th anniversary of the foundation of the the Down With Imperialism Union by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. The speaker said that the election of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il as general secretary of the WPK was an epochal event in the Songun revolution and in defending socialism.
                       The meeting heard a number of keynote addresses. Firstly the JISGE chairman reported back from his visit to the DPRK .
This was my second visit in a year  and my 8th visit to the DPRK .It was very good to see the reality of the DPRK and renew ties with KASS and other DPRK organisations. I saw with my own eyes the true reality of the DPRK which is rapidly building a thriving socialist country under the wise leadership of great respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, First Secretary of the CC of the WPK , First chairman of the DPRK NDC and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, The central part of the visit was the excellent and detailed course on Kimilsungism -Kimjongilism organised by the KASS. 
My visit came at a time when the DPRK was proudly celebrating the 64th year since its foundation in 1948.  It was at a time when the DPRK is standing in confrontation with US imperialism, the chieftain of US imperialism. Great excitement had been generated by the visit of supreme commander Marshal KIm Jong Un to front-line areas and his subsequent speech  " 25 Aug 2012 – Only Victory and Glory Will Be in Store for Us Who are Advancing under the Unfurled Flag Bearing the Immortal Beaming Images of the Great Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il"  made on 25th of August to mark the 52nd anniversary of the start of Songun revolutionary leadership, This speech along with his order to counter the provocation of the US with a sacred reunification war is a powerful inspiration to anti-imperialists.          The course organised by the KASS was attended by delegates from Mongolia, Nepal, Bangladesh, Venezuela , Pakistan, Russia , Slovakia, Nigeria , Benin and Democratic Congo. There were even American tourists on the plane  This shows that the propaganda  about the DPRK being isolated is totally false .
                                  Driving from the airport one could see the beauty of the DPRK in autumn with the fields covered in swathes of green rice. In the Pyongyang area there was no sign of flood damage or crop failure, Once again my own eyes confirmed the reality of Juche-based socialism  . everyone was going about their business normally no one was starving or begging, Miss Kim explained to me about the new flats in Changjon street.  Some of the flats are 170 square metres. These were newly built and given to the working people free of charge something unimaginable in a capitalist country . Indeed in my own country the UK rents are sky high . Flats in Westminster . a central part of London sell for £1,195,000 or rent for them is £3000 per month .  The reactionary government of the UK has adopted a policy of "social cleansing"  of removing poorer people from the central parts of London such as Westminster, Kensington and other parts to other areas.
The DPRK is the only country in the world to provide free housing. No one should be against this ! The DPRK enforces many other popular people-orientated policies such as free education and free medical care.
                           On the last day of my visit we took a trip on the magnificent Pyongyang Metro a real edifice of Juche-based socialism. It costs only 5 won (about 2p or 3p ) to go on the Metro with free travel for pensioners and war veterans. The Metro is very clean , in fact the cleanest in the world and free from banal capitalist advertising.
During my visit to the DPRK dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un himself visited ordinary families in Changjon Street and sat down with them. Again this is something unimaginable in the imperialist and capitalist West. In the UK it would be impossible for David Cameron to visit ordinary working people as it would provoke anger. However dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un was received like a member of the family. He gave the families presents including a 42 in LCD TV which would cost £500 to buy in the UK, Thus workers in the DPRK enjoy a far higher level of social benefits than in even the so-called advanced capitalist countries.
                        The DPRK is virtually crime free and Korean people are the most honest in the world. There is no pornography or prostitution in the DPRK . Women are respected as the flower of the country.
The core part of the visit was a course on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism . This was held at the People's Palace of Culture. We were given a number of lectures on Kimisungism-Kimjongilism by leading academicians of the KASS such as Dr Kim Chang Un and Dr Mun Jong Suk.
Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism has been expounded by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un. It is now been studied and promoted on an international scale  so the KASS arranged this course so to achieve a better understanding of it.  Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism  is the great revolutionary ideology of our era founded by the great President Kim Il Sung and further enriched by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il.
 It was explained that  leader Kim Jong Il had expounded Kimilsungism but forbade the use of the term Kimjongilism.  Kimilsungism -Kimjongilism  is the eternal guiding ideology of the Workers' Party of Korea and has its core the Juche idea. As dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un said  
"Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is an intregal system of the idea, theory and method of Juche and a great revolutionary ideology of the Juche era"
  The Juche era is fundamentally different era from preceding eras of history , previously history was dominated by exploiters. Now under the banner of Juche the masses have emerged as masters of history to oppose exploitation.
       Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un has written a number of works such as , "Let us Brilliantly Acomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche Holding Kim Jong Il in High Esteem as the eternal general secretary of  our party " "Let Us March Dynamically Forward to Final Victory Holding Higher the Banner of Songun ", "The great Kim Il Sung is the eternal leader of our Party and People", "On Bringing About a revolutionary turn in land administration in line with the demands for building a thriving socialist country "and " Let Us Step the building of a thriving socialist country by applying Kim Jong Il's patriotism"  and "Only Victory and Glory will be in store for the people who are advancing under the unfurled beaming images of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il".
                                                        Whilst studying at Kim Il Sung Military University  respected leader Kim Jong Un wrote a thesis on the military art and tactics of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung during the Fatherland Liberation War.
 The Western media have been shocked by the fact that the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is so firmly established . There has been a totally smooth transition in the succession in the DPRK. Dear respected Kim Jong Un has many talents. He is an expert on literature and culture as well the knowledge based economy. He is a great military commander and general who can drive a tank fast. He commanded the Yongphyong island operation which give the US imperialists and south Korean puppets(to use a northern Irish term) a good blattering .Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is also a benevolent father of the people , He took steps to safeguard the health and wellbeing of mourners last December, such setting stands for people to get a hot drink, when the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il passed away. Now dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is exerting every effort to improve the living standards of the people.
 Visiting Pyongyang after the space of 5 months we could see many new structures and buildings with a number under construction or existing buildings being renovated . During the day and night you could hear the sounds of construction. It was really amazing. The Rungna People's Pleasure Park has been newly opened. This consists of 2 fun fairs, a dolphinarium and an outside water sports facility. On the my last day the Pyongyang Folk Park was opened. Who can say that the DPRK is not prosperous ?
                Basically the Korean people looked far happier than ordindary working people in the UK and capitalist countries. In my country the UK many workers suffer from depression but in the socialist DPRK  I saw happy people who knew only the joys of life. There were no starving or homeless people. It is a big lie that there is starvation. Josef Goebels Hitler's so called Minister of Information and Propaganda once said if you repeat a big lie often enough people will accept it as a truth. This is precisely what the media of the capitalist countries do in relation to the DPRK.
ation by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung is told the spectacular and colourful pageant of "Arirang". We were deeply lucky to saw the last performance of the season. Arirang is now better than ever. It was held at the May Day stadium on Rungna island. Arirang  is a work of true genius. It outshone the banal opening ceremony of the London Olympics . The performance of Arirang requires a high level of discipline, unity  and purpose. As such this is only available in the DPRK based on single hearted unity around the Juche idea, the party and leader. My guide Miss Kim said she had been an Arirang dancer in 2008. So it made a difference to see Arirang in the presence of someone who had been a performer.
eum. I thought as a foreigner I would not be allowed to visit it .  The museum was built under the guidance of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un. It is of a very high standard with an imaginative layout(even has its own narrow gauge railway line) and well designed and constructed scale models  as well as original pieces of military hardware. Everything is of Korean make. The DPRK  is able to defend itself and win victory by its own efforts. No one should doubt the power of Songun. I saw the exhibition of strategic rockets and missiles and thought to myself it is a case of Goodbye Yanks, goodbye south Korean puppets !  The USA could be destroyed at the push of a button !. There was also a section on international warfare including a section on Iraq. Visiting the exhibition I became even more firmly convinced that the DPRK under the wise leadership of respected Marshal Kim Jong Un will one day fully display the power of Songun and reunify the country by driving the hated US imperialists into the sea ! May the imperialists suffer a second and third Yongphyong island !
                                 I was also able to visit the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea and converse with its chief comrade Zo Il Min.  We in the JISGE and ASSPUK are proud to have such excellent comrades as the AINDF. A film about "Ulji Freedom Guardian " was shown. This showed the war moves of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets along with mercenary troops of pro US satellite nations,. The AINDF comrades stressed than Korea is the only country in the world that knows thepain of national division.We exchanged gifts and  then had an excellent luncheon in a fraternal and cordial manner.
                             I also met comrades from the Korean Committee For Friendship with Britain and the Korea Publications Exchange Association .
               The speaker concluded that all JISGE and UK KFA members should visit the DPRK and see for themselves the reality of the DPRK as one seeing is worth a hundred
sayings.
The JISGE chairman  also gave an introduction to Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. He said

      Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is fully consistent with the Juche idea. It is the ideology of the Juche era which is different to all previous eras and epochs . Before the Juche era history was dominated and made by the exploiters , the ruling class. However the oppressed and exploited masses such as workers in capitalist countries and the peoples of colonial and semi-colonial emerged as the makers of history . Typical of this was was the emergence of the first socialist state in the world and the anti-imperialist national liberation struggle such as the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung.

 It fully enshrines the ideas of the great leaders comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il . Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is a great revolutionary programme for the contuinity of revolutionary leadership and socialist construction in the DPRK. In the DPRK thanks to dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un instead of denying the ideas , theories and leadership of the preceding
great leaders President Kim Il Sung and general Kim Jong Il, their theories have been elevated a new higher level , Kimilsungism -Kimjongilism .Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un  has vowed that there should no concession in adhering to the revolutionary ideas of the great leader President Kim Il Sung and the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il.  Under the banner of Kimilsungism -Kimjongilism the DPRK will advance along the road of independence,Songun and socialism and win victory after victory

The secreary general of the JISGE spoke on the foundation of the Workers' Party of Korea and its history.  His masterly speech outlined the nearly 90 years of history of the WPK . He said that 
    The history of the Workers' Party of Korea goes back to the foundation of the the Down With Union by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung in 1926. The DIU was an organisation which broke with the stale practices of factionalism and flunkeyism which had plagued the
Korean revolution . The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung put forward the line of independently founding the party at the historic Kalun meeting in June 1930. Later the 
Association for the Restoration of the Fatherland was founded .
                         In 1945 the Communist Party of North Korea was founded on the 10th of October. In order to prevent the working people being split amongst different forces the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung saw that the CPNK merged with the New Democratic Party in August 1946. Then in 1949 the Workers' Party of North Korea and Workers' Party of south Korea merged to form the Workers' Party of Korea.           
                         Thanks to the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung  the WPK withstood the grim trials of the great victorious Fatherland Liberation War . Comrade Kim Il Sung defeated the Pak Hong Yong -Li Sung Yop counter-revolutionary spy clique.
                           The WPK under the wise leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung opposed modern revisionism which did so much damage in some socialist countries. It also opposed ultra leftism which emerged in some parties.
                In the 1970s  the dear leader comrade Kim Jong Il put forward the programme of modelling the party and society on Kimilsungism . In the 1990s when socialism collapsed in some countries the WPK under the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung and the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il rallied the international communist forces by putting forward the Pyongyang Declaration. The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il wrote
a number of works such "Fundamentals of Revolutionary Party Building , "The Workers' Party of Korea  is the Party of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung " and many others.
            The WPK has 3 million members. It is not bureaucratic nor is it elitist or technocratic. It has members from all walks of life and society , professors, coalminers,
teachers , street cleaners and waitresses. It is not an elite but has deep roots in society.
            Today under the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un the WPK is 
leading the Korean forward to the final victory of Songun.

The general secretary of the New Communist Party said that it is very good that the Worker's Party of Korea under the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung has defended socialism. The socialist achievements of the Korean people are really great  as he had seen for himself and these achievements had been won at great sacrifice.
The WPK under the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung and the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il had avoided the mistakes and pitfalls of European Marxists.
Juche shows how to combine the interests of the individual with the interests of the collective. The individual could only be free as part of the collective.

A lecturer at the University of London spoke about the 86th anniversary of the Down-With-Imperialism Union and Songun. Thes speaker said that the roots of the Workers' Party of Korea go back to the Down With Imperialism Union which was founded in 1926. In 1982 the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il wrote the work "The Workers' Party of Korea is a Juche-type revolutionary party which inherited the glorious tradition of the DIU  "
which fully fully expounded how the WPK was qualitatively different to other communist parties. This work had been written at a time when people in Britain had just started to study the Juche idea. It was written at  a time when youth uprisings took place in inner city areas of Britain and later the miners strike took place.  Juche teaches us that class struggles are intertwined with national liberation struggles. The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung ensured that the revolutionary traditions were carried forward and achievements made in the work of Juche party building.
           Later the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il developed Songun politics and the Songun idea to defend Juche based socialism against the threats from imperialism. Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is following in the traditions of Songun. In his excellent speech on the 25th of August this year  he stated 
Counter provocations with an immediate counteroffensive, and an aggressive war with a war of justice for the country’s reunification–this is our principled stand and unshakable will.
We will never remain onlookers to the enemy’s desperate moves for aggression; we will do all we can to defend the destiny of the country and nation.
It is a truth confirmed by history that nobody in the world can check the advance of a people who have turned out for their cause of justice.
If another undesirable war breaks out on this land as a consequence of the unpardonable actions of the United States and its south Korean puppets, they will sustain an ignominious defeat in the war and our great nation will greet a bright dawn of their reunification.
Only victory and glory will be in store for us who are advancing under the unfurled flag bearing the immortal beaming images of the great Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il
this is a powerful inspiration to anti-imperialists everywhere as it shows that a nation can stand up against imperialism and it can be defeated.

The JISGE chairman  said that when he attended the lecture given by the KASS on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism he learnt how Juche clarifies that the class struggle, the national liberation struggle and struggle to build a new society are all part of the struggle for independence and therefore all inter-related. Trotskyites try to falsely set class struggle against national liberation struggle .
 
The general secretary of the New Communist Party and chairman of the International Committee for the Release of Mr Ro Su Hui spoke about the repression of Mr Ro Su Hui and south Korean pro reunification patriots.He said that Mr Ro Su Hui had been unjustly arrested by the south Korean authorities but this is one human rights violation that the Western media did not like to talk about or admit has happened even though video footage clearly shows the shocking incident of Mr Ro's arrest.The speaker said we need to build up the campaign and organise a picket soon. He the committee has received international endorsements.

Questions and discussion came from the floor of the meeting.  There were practical questions about travel to the DPRK, questions about the role of Trotsky-ism in Korea , about road traffic in Pyongyang .

The JISGE chairman reiterated that it is very important for people to visit the DPRK  and that the JISGE and UK KFA must send delegations to visit the DPRK next year.

A letter to dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un was adopted by the meeting.

An exhibition of books from the DPRK was on display

Refreshments such as sandwiches , tea, coffee and biscuits were served.


Special Article of UK KFA, ASSPUK and JISGE- DPRK has the right to defend itself

On October 7th South Korea and the USA announced that they would extend there current long rage ballistic missile system to cover 800km, nearly tripling its existing 300km range.
The US and South Korean puppets have been on a constant propaganda campaign with the outside world to try and bring this new system into effect much sooner. However protest from Japan and other neighbouring countries, as the new range now includes parts of Japan and China, would have easily escalated into, what the US feared, a regional arms race.
So what was there argument for the sudden change in policy? A satellite launch!
In April this year the DPRK, as part of there celebrations in honour of the 100th anniversary of the birth of comrade Kim Il-Sung, planed on sending a observation satellite into orbit. Unfortunately the rocket failed to leave earths atmosphere causing the USA and its puppet allies to regurgitate lies and myths about the launch. The imperialists have engaged in a propaganda campaign stating that the satellite launch was a cover story for the DPRK to test fire a long range ballistic weapon. Right from the DPRK's announcement of the planned launch the DPRK government was always open and informative with its rocket, satellite and intentions, foreign media was allowed complete access to the launch and were allowed total freedom. Despite this openness the DPRK has still been painted as an 'evil villain' intent on testing weapons of mass destruction, blatant lies that can easily be exposed as such with a little investigation.
The need to increase the range of a ballistic missile for defence makes about as much sense as a blind person pointing a gun at an innocent person just in case they try to shoot them first. Firstly if the innocent person feels threatened by the fact that they have a gun pointing at them then they are more likely to arm them selves. Secondly if the person does decide to pull out a gun and shoot the blind person then there's nothing the blind person can do to prevent this as the blind persons gun is useless in the event of them being shot, the blind persons only use of there gun is to shoot first not second. The same applies to the Korean peninsula's current situation, with the South Korea being the blind person with a gun. If there intention really was for defence then they would have instead created a anti-ballistic missile defence system, not a long range ballistic missile system. After observing these points I hope you can realise the true aggressive intent behind the USA and South Korea's actions on this matter.
We at the Korean friendship association are committed to brining to the world the DPRK's 'side of the story' doing so is not just our duty but our passion.
In the immortal words of comrade Ernesto "Che" Guevara, who's 45th anniversary of his assassination by the hands of the US imperialists and Bolivian puppets was just commemorated,"¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!" (Until victory, always!).
Long live the DPRK!

UK KFA Slams SK-US Missile Deal

UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
                                                London 11th October 2012
                  The UK Korean Friendship Association strongly condemn the so-called "deal"  between the US and south Korea to allow south Korea to extend the range of its ballistic missiles from 300km to 800km in order to be able to strike all of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and possibly China and Russia. This agreement is not an agreement between equals but very much a case of the Organ grinder letting the monkey dance. The so-called agreement simply turns south Korea into an unsinkable aircraft carrier for US imperialism.
                                                                                 By taking a measure to allow south Korea to extend the range of its missiles(more than doubling the range ) it is clear that the US and south Korea do not want peace but are in fact rounding off one in scope and depth preparations for a war against the DPRK . This measure though it is the most dangerous and provocative yet  one of a long line of war moves and  provocations against the DPRK  which include slandering the supreme leadership and system of the DPRK , introducing new kinds of military hardware into south Korea and frequent war exercises against the DPRK including  RIMPAC and Ulji Freedom Guardian. This  latest and decisive twist in the spiral of tension created by the US imperialists is a very grave threat to peace in north east Asia and the whole world. It increases the likelihood that the flashpoint of the the third world war will be in Korea. Such a war could threaten the existence of humanity , the US and south Korea would be held responsible for their  actions.
     We fully support the statement of the DPRK NDC on October 9th as well as the statements subsequently made by the DPRK Foreign Ministry and the Committee For the Peaceful Reunification of Korea. UK KFA believes that the DPRK has every right as a sovereign nation to take whatever steps are necessary to defend itself from potential aggression by the US and south Korea. Such aggression is now a real possibility given the decsion to extend the range of south Korean missiles.

We support the call made by the DPRK NDC to do more to expose the arbitrary and unjust policies of US imperialism . The US throughout its history has interfered and intervened in many countries. It has sent troops to lands many miles from its shores. We believe that the US must withdraw from south Korea.
We will support the Korean people in their struggle against US imperialism.

CPRK Spokesman Denounces S. Korea′s 'Missile Policy Declaration'


Pyongyang, October 10 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) Wednesday released a statement denouncing the "missile policy declaration" which the south Korean puppet regime made public in conspiracy with the U.S. on October 7.
The statement said that the "missile policy declaration" is one of a preemptive attack on the DPRK and an open provocation to ignite an all-out war.
The "missile policy declaration" which envisages the extension of missile range is the product of the heinous confrontation moves of the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors in south Korea to fight against the DPRK to the last and the U.S. aggression strategy for domination over the Asia-Pacific region, the statement said, and went on:
The publication of the "missile policy declaration" shows that the preparations for a preemptive attack on the DPRK by the U.S. and south Korea have entered the phase of full-scale implementation.
The DPRK is compelled to exercise strong physical strength, provided that the Lee group persists in the reckless moves for a war to prolong its dirty remaining days.
The army and people of the DPRK will annihilate the U.S. imperialist aggressors, sworn enemy of the Korean people, and the Lee group of traitors and achieve the final victory in the great war for country's reunification as was clarified in a statement of the spokesman for the DPRK National Defence Commission. -0-

DPRK FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. for Sparking New Missile Arms Race in Northeast Asia

Pyongyang, October 10 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK Wednesday issued a statement denouncing the U.S. for opening the way for south Korea to develop missiles capable of reaching any part of the DPRK.
The U.S. intention is to use south Korea, which regards the confrontation with the fellow countrymen as a means of its existence, as a shock brigade in implementing its hostile policy towards the DPRK and igniting a war against it, the statement said, and went on:
It is for this purpose that the U.S. discarded its mask of deterring the ballistic missiles proliferation and opted for improving the missile capability of south Korea in a bid to preempt an attack on the strategic armed forces of the DPRK.
As was clarified by the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK, the Korean People's Army is keeping within the scope of strike not only the U.S. military bases in south Korea and its vicinity but also the U.S. mainland.
So huge will be the consequences to be entailed by the U.S. missile development plan. It destroyed by itself the "missile technology control system" for preventing the worldwide proliferation of the ballistic missiles. It threw a wet blanket over the effort for restraint of long-range missile launch and all other efforts for stability of the Korean Peninsula and its surrounding areas, and destroyed the foundation for dialogue and negotiations.
The U.S. is left with no moral qualifications to talk about the development of the DPRK's missile capability as it is the chieftain that sparked off new missile arms race in Northeast Asia.
The U.S. has so far stepped up sanctions against the DPRK, calling for preventing its satellite launch for peaceful purposes while claiming that satellite also uses the ballistic missile technology. But, now it is in a position unable to make any excuses even though the DPRK launches a long-range missile for military purposes.
It is natural for the DPRK to bolster missile capability for striking the stronghold of aggression under the condition that the U.S. intends to put forward south Korean puppet forces as a bullet-shield after deploying a great number of nukes and missiles targeted against the DPRK.
The recent missile move will result in endangering the security of the U.S. mainland, far from ensuring it. The U.S. will have to hold full responsible for it. -0-

Supplement to ASSPUK and JISGE statement on the DPRK NDC 9th of October statement

The statement  of the DPRK NDC emphasises the revolutionary slogan of the KPA " Let Us Annihilate the US imperialist aggressors the sworn enemy of the Korean people, As the great leade
President Kim Il Sung said
" All imperialism, without exception, is aggressive in nature, be it Japanese imperialism or US imperialism, the imperialism of yesterday or the imperialism of today.
Just as the brutish nature of a wolf cannot change, so the aggressive nature of imperialism can never change. Catch a wolf cub and raise it; the beast will still do harm to people and flee into the mountains when it grows up. If the aggressive nature of imperialism changed, it would mean that imperialism had already ceased to exist. So long as imperialism remains, its aggressive nature will remain. We should categorically reject the allegation of the revisionists that the aggressive nature of imperialism has changed."



We also fully strike the right of the DPRK to strike back against US imperialist aggression.
No one doubt should doubt the massive self-defence capacity built up by Peoples' Korea under the banner of Songun . The delegation of the ASSPUK and JISGE witnessed the massive military power in April when we saw the grand parade of the Korean People's Army on the Day of the Sun and at the KPA Exhibition of Military Equipment and Arms in September.
The Korean People's Army commanded by great respected Marshal Kim Jong Un will be ever victorious

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

                    London 9th October Juche 101 (2012)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK together with the Juche Idea Study Group of England issued the following statement in support of the statement made public by the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on October 9th 2012.
               Recently the US and south Korea made a so-called joint announcement on  extending the range of missiles of the south Korea to be able to hit all of the DPRK and beyond. The fact that the south Korea had to ask permission from the US to do so shows it is a puppet of the US and suffers from abject and sycophantic dependence on the US. It is unthinkable that the independent Juche DPRK would ever have to ask another country for permission to increase its military forces !
                    It is a stark manifestation of the hostile policy of the US imperialists towards the DPRK that they have allowed the south Korean puppets to extend the range of their ballistic missiles with a view to striking the DPRK . This clearly shows that the US imperialists plan to destroy the  DPRK in order to wipe out Juche-based socialism by force. There can be no doubt the US has hostile , deadly and aggressive intent towards the DPRK , this as clear as day is day and night is night. If is there no plan for war why bother to increase the range of missiles ?  This shows the insincerity of the US when they claim they do not plan to attack the DPRK. Indeed Obama is the biggest two-faced hypocrite and liar amongst modern politicans.
                                           US imperialism is the sworn enemy of the Korean (and indeed all of progressive humankind) that has committed aggression against Korea since the days of the intrusion of the General Sherman. The US imperialists plundered gold from Korea. Later they launched an aggressive war against the  DPRK in 1950 causing huge material and human losses to the DPRK. As the DPRK NDC statement says it should not be forgotten that a wolf cannot subsist on grass   meaning a wolf cannot turn into a lamb. As the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung taught us the aggressive nature of US imperialism can never change.
       We support the militant revolutionary and anti-imperialist line outlined in the statement  to put into practice the slogan "Let Us Annihlate the US imperialist
Aggressors the sworn enemy of the Korean people !" . The KPA of the DPRK is probably the only army in the world to have such a militant revolutionary slogan. It is good that the DPRK is maintaining such a principled and just stand
when others have compromised with imperialism or stand frightened of it.
                    We also support the resolve of the DPRK to fully bolster its deterrent force and increase its military preparendness.
                       Furthermore in response to the call of the DPRK NDC for the world progressive people to heighten vigilance against the arbitrary practices of US imperialism. We fully recognise that the US imperialism is not only the enemy of the Korean people but the no 1 exploiter and oppressor in the world , the biggest aggressor( the author of hundreds of wars and interventions) and the biggest human rights abuser in the world. We call upon progressive organisations of Britain and the world to work harder to expose US imperialism!

The statement of the DPRK NDC is a just and correct one. We commend it to all progressive and anti-imperialists.
Long Live the anti-US ,anti-imperialist struggle for Korean reunification and global independence !
