    Pyongyang, April 9 (KCNA) -- Papers Sunday in editorials dedicated to the 13th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission say that the past ten-odd years when he has led the Korean revolution, assuming a heavy responsibility of the NDC chairman, were the unforgettable years which have witnessed a significant turn in strengthening the state and the revolutionary armed forces and the glorious years when the heroic stamina of the DPRK dynamically advancing toward a bright future, overcoming manifold difficulties, was brought into full play. Over the past more than ten years Kim Jong Il has ushered in a new history of building a great prosperous powerful nation in this land by leading the party, the army and people with his unique Songun politics, Songun revolutionary leadership, Rodong Sinmun says, and goes on:
    The DPRK led by him is a country of single-minded unity where the headquarters of the revolution and the army and people have formed a harmonious whole. It is only in the DPRK that the leader, the army and the people have formed unbreakable ties of kinship based on warm love, trust and noble moral obligation. The DPRK led by him is an invincible military power which defends the dignity of the nation with powerful national defence capability.
    The self-reliant national defence power of the DPRK has been remarkably strengthened. The whole army is replete with the spirit of devotedly defending the leader and all the servicepersons are reliably defending the country and socialism in the spirit of readily becoming human bombs, the spirit of suicide bombing. It has modern offensive and defensive means capable of coping with any war, the trait of attaching importance to arms prevails in the whole society and the all-people and nationwide defensive system has been firmly established. No force on earth can pounce upon the DPRK.
    Minju Joson says that the DPRK has a bright future as it has Kim Jong Il, an illustrious commander of Mt. Paektu and a politician of general type, at the head of the army and the state.
