Rodong Sinmun on Songun Politics

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- It is entirely thanks to the Songun politics pursued by the Workers' Party of Korea that peace has been preserved on this land and the dignity and security of the nation have been reliably defended under the present tense and acute situation, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a signed article.

Neither independent reunification so much desired by all the Koreans and peace and prosperity nor the destiny of individual Koreans would have been thinkable without the Songun politics, the article notes, and goes on:

The Korean nation which once lamented over its sorrow as a weak nation downtrodden by outsiders is now powerfully demonstrating its dignity and honor as a strong nation in the world. This stirring reality of the DPRK clearly indicates that the dignity and independent development of the nation are all guaranteed by Songun.

Peace has been firmly defended on the Korean Peninsula today when the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean warmongers' moves for provoking a nuclear war have reached an extreme phase. This hard reality once again proves it was entirely just for the DPRK to have bolstered up its national capability for self-defence in every way under the uplifted banner of Songun.

The Songun politics helps decisively foil with matchless force the reckless military provocations of the foreign aggressors who are dead-set against the reunification of Korea and the south Korean conservative ruling forces, their lackeys, and, at the same time, instills great national pride and self-esteem into the Koreans, positively encouraging them in their struggle for sovereignty.

The Songun politics firmly protects and safeguards not only the people in the DPRK but people of all social strata in south Korea.

Immensely rosy and bright is the future of the Korean nation as long as the great Songun politics is in force in reliance upon the invincible revolutionary armed forces.

Whoever has the blood and soul of the Korean nation should feel greatly honored and proud of the Songun politics of the WPK, a great banner of the nation, and uphold it with single-minded patriotism, regardless of whether he or she lives in the north or the south or overseas, the article concludes.
