Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday dedicates a signed article to the 9th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's work "Songun Politics of Our Party Is an Effective Socialist Political Mode".

The work, published on July 5, Juche 90 (2001), comprehensively deals with the essential contents and originality of the Songun policy of the Workers' Party of Korea, a brilliant embodiment of President Kim Il Sung's idea of attaching importance to the army and the military affairs, and the tasks and ways for accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Songun.

The ideas and theories expounded in the work serve as highly important guidelines to be held fast to by the army and people of the DPRK in the showdown with imperialism and the U.S., and the building of a thriving socialist nation, the article notes, proving the wise leadership of Kim Jong Il has provided for steering Korean-style socialism to victory with his Songun policy.

It says:

The DPRK is dashing ahead towards a thriving nation after emerging an invincible political and ideological power single-mindedly united around the headquarters of the revolution in which socialism formed a community linked by the same destiny and a socialist fortress with matchless military power and strong national economic potential. This is the brilliant fruition of the Songun policy of Kim Jong Il.

His wise leadership finds a vivid expression in that he built up invincible armed forces capable of beating back any anti-socialist action of the imperialists at a single blow, consolidated the great army-people unity, the strongest weapon of revolution, in every way and brought about great innovations and leap forward in building a thriving nation by giving free rein to the ideological and mental power of all the servicepersons and people.

The cause of building a thriving socialist power is sure to be crowned with victory as long as there are the army and people giving full play to the single-minded unity, the strong national self-respect, the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and fortitude, the noble love for the future and the spirit of devotion under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il.
