The birth of the Juche-oriented revolutionary armed forces on April 25, Juche 21 (1932) provided a powerful military guarantee for victoriously advancing the Korean revolution and the start of shining history of Songun Korea always emerging victorious by dint of the matchless military strength, the editorial notes, and says:

The KPA has glorified its ever-victorious history and traditions generation after generation as it has held Kim Jong Il, the great illustrious commander of Songun, at the top post of the revolutionary armed forces.

The KPA is a strong revolutionary army which always wins victory by dint of his military strategy and idea, tactics, matchless attack spirit and pluck. It is also invincible revolutionary armed forces which emerge victorious on the strength of his idea on the army-people unity.

The strategy and tactics of the KPA that has grown under his leadership represent superb war tactics whereby to repel any "preemptive attack" of the enemy at a single stroke and hold the definite initiative as well as creative and ever-changing tactics which no one can imagine or stand.

The attack spirit of the KPA is the strong spirit that does not allow any concession and retreat in any adversity and a steady fighting spirit that does not allow moment's halt until the final victory is won.

If the imperialist enemies intrude into the sky, land and waters of the DPRK even 0.001mm, its army will beat them back at a stroke by mercilessly showering bombs and shells on them. It is the firm determination of the KPA.

The army and the people have become oneness in idea and fighting spirit on the basis of the revolutionary soldier spirit and the traits of the army assisting the people and vice versa are highly displayed. As a result, the roots of society of the DPRK are further consolidated and the DPRK is demonstrating its dignity as the country of steel-like single-minded unity.

The cause of building a thriving nation is sure to be accomplished as there is the KPA which has grown to be the invincible revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu in the grim tempest of the revolution under the leadership of the great commander of Songun.
