Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- July 27 means the day of the second liberation for the army and people of the DPRK as they defeated the U.S. imperialists and honorably protected the sovereignty of the country under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung. It is, at the same time, the day of glory that makes the generations to come cherish the precious legacy of victory to be glorified by them, always remembering it.
Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a by-lined article.
It goes on:
The above-said victory constitutes a shining victory won thanks to the outstanding military idea, strategy and tactics and extraordinary commanding art of the President, the founder of the Songun idea and the pioneer of the revolutionary cause of Songun. It is a signal victory won thanks to the heroic struggle of the Korean People's Army, the heir to the Songun traditions established in the period of the anti-Japanese struggle, and the army-people unity attained on the road of Songun.
Recalling that the Korean people have won one victory after another with the might of Songun in the stand-off with the U.S. imperialists for more than half a century since the ceasefire of the Korean War, the article notes that this was attributable to the outstanding Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il.
This leadership finds its manifestation in the fact that he equipped all the servicepersons and people with the Juche-based view on a war and turned the whole country into an impregnable fortress in view of the situation where the state of cease-fire persisted. His leadership proved to be an immortal one as he decisively smashed the persistent war moves of the U.S. imperialists and fully demonstrated the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation before the world and brilliant one as he wrote a heroic epic of creation and change, prevailing over imperialism in all fields including politics, diplomacy, economy and culture.
It was thanks to Songun that the army and people of the DPRK could frustrate the ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare perpetrated by the imperialists against them through the revolutionary ideological offensive and foil the imperialists' sanctions against the DPRK by dint of the army-people unity and self-reliance and dash ahead like the wind towards a thriving nation.
The drive for building a thriving nation in the DPRK is one to build a great power having invincible national power in all fields including politics, military affairs, economy and culture. It is like a final do-or-die battle for finally shattering the moves of the U.S. imperialists for a war of aggression.
It is possible to win a victory in the final do-or-die battle with imperialism only when a strong country with invincible national power emerges as early as possible not only in the political and military fields but in the economic field.
It is necessary to bring about great innovations and leap forward in all sites for building a thriving nation under the banner of Songun in order to win the final victory in the Songun revolution. The day of victory like July 27 will always be in store for the Korean people following the road of Songun.
