Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un’s declaration

The world is currently focusing its attention on the DPRK, speculating which path it would
take and what policies it would pursue after the demise of Kim Jong Il, chairman of the National
Defence Commission on December 17, 2011.

At this time Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the DPRK, inspected a guards division of the
Korean People’s Army, delivering a delicate message to the international community.

The division, organized by President Kim Il Sung, founding father of socialist Korea, in
August 1948, is an elite tank division which performed distinguished feats during the Korean
war (1950-1953) unleashed by the United States. Chairman Kim Jong Il started his
Songun-based revolutionary leadership by visiting it on August 25, 1960.
It is noteworthy that Kim Jong Un visited this division as his first official visit after the
national loss and his assuming the supreme commandership of the KPA on December 30, 2011,
and that on New Year’s Day of 2012.
When he visited the division he said that as he offered New Year greetings to Kim Jong Il
lying in state in the Kumsusan Memorial Palace it seemed as if he were telling him to visit the
105 guards tank division and so he came there straight.
AP reported that Kim Jong Un acquainted himself in detail with the living of the soldiers with
parental affection and posed for photographs with them much like President Kim Il Sung
and Chairman Kim Jong Il did.
His inspection of the division that day is too similar to that of Chairman Kim Jong Il, who
visited an army unit on New Year’s Day of 1995, the year after President Kim Il Sung’s death.
His inspection of the unit, known as the Dwarf-Pine Company, signified the direction of his
future politics, declaring to the world that he would carry forward the cause of socialism holding
higher the banner of Songun.
Thanks to his Songun politics the DPRK has strengthened the national defence capabilities in
every way, and even built a nuclear deterrent strong enough to avert the constant nuclear threats
of the United States. It has braved the worst economic difficulties with the KPA as the pillar and
the main force of the cause of socialism. Two rounds of successful launch of the artificial earth
satellites and the mass-production of Juche iron, Juche fertilizer and Juche fiber have further
cemented the might of the self-supporting national economy. It has also entered the road of
building a powerful country with knowledge-based economy by relying on the successful
building of the CNC-based machine-building industry. By dint of Songun politics the June 15
North-South Joint Declaration and the October 4 Declaration, the action programme of the
former, were adopted, unfolding the bright vista for achieving the national reunification. As the
Korean-style socialism has been safeguarded and further strengthened, the world socialist
movement is inspired with a new vigour. Governments which aspire after socialism emerged one
after another in Latin America which had been called the “quiet backyard” of the United States.
Songun politics has been proved as the ever-victorious banner and all-powerful sword of
socialist cause and the cause of independence of mankind.
Proceeding from these facts Kim Jong Un’s visit to the guards division constitutes an
important occasion which demonstrated his iron-like will to add brilliance to the achievements of
Songun-based leadership of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and inherit their Songun politics
without the slightest vacillation.
This was testified by the events that coincided with this inspection tour; announcement of a
decision of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea,
publication of joint slogans of the Central Committee and Central Military Commission of the
WPK on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung, and the New Year’s
joint editorial of Rodong Sinmun and other leading newspapers, titled, Glorify this year 2012 as a
year of proud victory, a year when an era of prosperity is unfolding, true to the instructions of the
great General Kim Jong Il. Korea has demonstrated its faith and will to venerate Kim Jong Il as
the eternal leader of the WPK and the Korean people and build a thriving socialist country
without fail under the unfurled banner of Songun.
Just like in the days when Kim Jong Il was alive Songun politics is thoroughly being applied
in all fields of politics, military affairs, the economy and culture. The whole country has turned
out in the effort to surely open the gates of a thriving nation by 2012, the goal set by him.
Single-hearted unity of the whole society has reached the highest level and the self-reliant
national defence capabilities have been continuously strengthened.
As long as it is led by Kim Jong Un, who is unwaveringly inheriting the banner of Songun,
only victories will be in store for socialist Korea.


The Centenary of President Kim Il Sung’s Birth

The year 2012 marks the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung, a distinguished man of the 20th
President Kim Il Sung, founding father of socialist Korea, was born on April 15, 1912, into a
poor peasant family at Mangyongdae in Pyongyang. In those days Korea was under the military
occupation of Japanese imperialism (1905-1945).
Kim Il Sung was educated in patriotism by his parents and was under their revolutionary
influence from his early years. It was in his teens, early 1925, when he left his native place and
motherland with a resolute determination not to return before Korea became independent.
He formed the Down-with-Imperialism Union (DIU) in Huadian in Northeast China in
October 1926. The formation of the DIU made it possible for the Korean revolution to break
with the preceding generation obsessed with flunkeyism and dogmatism and advance along a
new road based on the principle of independence.
In the course of blazing the trail for the Korean revolution, he discovered the truth that the
masters of the revolution were the masses of the people and the revolution could emerge
victorious only when they were organized and mobilized, the truth of Juche that the revolution
should be undertaken on one’s own responsibility in accordance with one’s own belief instead of
conducting it after obtaining someone else’s recognition or under someone else’s instructions,
and that all the problems arising in the revolution should be solved independently and creatively
to meet the specific situation of the country. On the basis of this, he made public the creation of
Juche idea at Kalun in Northeast China in June 1930, the gist of which is that the masses of the
people are the masters and the driving force of the revolution and construction, in other words,
one is the master of one’s own destiny and has the power to carve it out.
The creation of the Juche idea was a significant event that opened up a new era, an
independent era, where the masses of the people emerged as masters of their own destiny and of
history for the first time in human history.
Kim Il Sung, having also proclaimed at the Kalun meeting the origination of the Songun idea
that the revolution is pioneered, advances and wins victory by the strength of the arms, founded
the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army in April 1932, thus starting his Songun-based
revolutionary leadership. He led the arduous anti-Japanese armed struggle with neither the home
front nor support from a regular army, and achieved the country’s liberation in August 1945.
After the country’s liberation, Kim Il Sung put forward the line of building a new
independent society following the road of progressive democracy of Korean style. He
proclaimed the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea, a leading force of the Korean society,
in October 1945, and had democratic reforms like agrarian reform, the nationalization of major
industries and so on, carried out. Then he established the Democratic People’s Republic of
Korea, the first genuine people’s democratic state in the East, on September 9, 1948.
Immediately after the liberation, he saw to it that the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army
was developed into the Korean People’s Army, a regular armed force, thus providing the
newly-born country with powerful defence capabilities. Herein lies the key to the historical
victory the Korean people gained in the Korean war (1950-1953) which was started by the US
imperialists in less than five years after the liberation and less than two years after the founding
of the Republic. The Korean army and people fought indefatigably under his sagacious
leadership and inflicted the ignominious defeat upon the US aggressors for the first time in
history, thus defending the national sovereignty and dignity with honour.
In the ensuing postwar periods Kim Il Sung put forth the line of economic construction for
giving priority to the growth of heavy industry while simultaneously developing light industry
and agriculture, which was a new line unprecedented so far. He adhered to the line of building an
independent national economy by rejecting categorically the pressure from others to force Korea
to join the Council for Mutual Economic Aid (COMECON). He kindled in December 1956 the
torch of the Chollima movement, an all-people movement. (Chollima means a legendary winged
horse that gallops 400km a day. It symbolizes the revolutionary spirit of the Korean people to
make a great upsurge). In the flames of the movement Korea brilliantly accomplished the historic
tasks of industrialization in a matter of 14 years (1957-1970), during which its industrial output
grew at an average rate of 19.1 per cent.
He set forth the original line of transforming the economic forms along socialist lines prior to
technological reconstruction of agriculture and energetically led the work for its implementation.
Thanks to his endeavours socialist system was established in Korea in 1958. He also made sure
that the scientific and advantageous socialist economic management system was established and,
on its basis, made public Theses on the Socialist Rural Question in Our Country in February
1964, thus showing the correct path for successfully solving the rural question.
Kim Il Sung paid close attention to developing Korea’s socialist system into socialism
centring on the masses. Under his warm solicitude, the systems of universal free medical care
and compulsory 11-year free education are enforced, and systems of building houses at state
expenses and taking care of people’s well-beings established, and tax system is abolished
In accordance with his grand plan of economic construction, Korea carried out with credit
several rounds of national economic plans, and thus has possessed great economic potentials
capable of manufacturing 10 000-ton press and large-sized oxygen plant by itself and building an
8-km-long barrage.
Under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung Korea has developed to a powerful socialist
state independent in politics, self-sufficient in the economy and self-reliant in national defence.
Thanks to its solid foundations and inexhaustible potentialities Korea could hold up unfailingly
the banner of socialism even when other countries abandoned socialism in the closing years of
last century. And it could further leap forward toward a high peak of building a socialist thriving
nation, smashing intensive offensives of the US-led imperialist allied forces in the fields of
politics, the economy and military. All the eye-opening achievements made in the course of
building a powerful and prosperous nation are materialization of the ideals and lifelong wishes of
President Kim Il Sung.

President Kim Il Sung exerted strenuous efforts to the reunification of the country ever since
its division caused by the United States. Always saying that the greatest present he could make
for the Korean nation would be the country’s reunification, he laid its fundamental basis by
setting forth the three charters of the Korean reunification—three principles of Korea’s
reunification, Ten-point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the
Reunification of the Country, and the proposal of founding the Democratic Federal Republic of
Koryo. On July 7, the day before he passed away (July 8, 1994) he read a document related to
the country’s reunification and left his last autographic sign. Thanks to his efforts a bright
prospect of the reunification was ushered in.
President Kim Il Sung enjoyed an outstanding prestige in the world political circles and
boundless respect and admiration of the progressive peoples of the world for his significant
contributions to the cause of independence of mankind as well as the Korean revolution.
He conducted energetic ideological and theoretical activities and made public a large number
of works, all of which have provided political and social figures and progressive peoples of the
world with valuable ideological and theoretical nourishment and encouragement.
During his lifetime he met over 70 000 heads of state and party, political and social
personages from 136 countries. Out of noble internationalist obligation he also rendered selfless
political and material aid and moral support to many countries, including China, Viet Nam and
Cuba, in their struggles for national liberation against imperialism and the building of new
He put forth the idea of making the whole world independent, led the people championing
independence to unite and struggle against all manners of imperialism and dominationism, and
greatly contributed to development of the non-aligned movement as well as the socialism
His immortal exploits and noble virtues won the reverence and admiration of the world
people. He was awarded hundreds of orders and medals, and honorary titles from governments,
political parties, social organizations, business enterprises, cities, universities, research institutes
of many countries, regional and international organizations, and UN-affiliated organizations.
Nearly 200 000 gifts were presented to him by heads of party, state and government, figures of
political and social organizations, and international organizations of 170-odd countries and
regions. He has been awarded decorations, medals, and honorary titles and presented with gifts
even after he had passed away.
The International Kim Il Sung Prize was instituted, over 480 streets, institutions and
organizations in more than 100 countries were named after him, and 1 000 Juche idea study
groups, including the International Institute of the Juche Idea, are active in 110 countries.
Grand functions in celebration of the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung are being
held on a worldwide scale.


On the 16th of March the DPRK Space technology Committee announced a plan to launch the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite using the Unha-3 rocket as the launch vehicle . This will be launched in April during the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. Such a spectacular event will of course add majesty and grandeur to the celebrations but more significantly will be a striking demonstration of the power of the DPRK which is an independent socialist country based on Juche and self-reliance. The rocket will be made 100% from DPRK resources and technology using the creative labour of Korean scientists and workers. No other country in the world is so independent and self-reliant. The US space programme was heavily dependent on the expertise of Nazi rocket scientist Werner Von Braun.
The DPRK is now in the proud ranks of satellite launching nations. The UK does not have a facility to launch its own satellites , it depends on other countries such as the US for rocket launches. The Unha-3 when it lifts off will be the proud fruit of the socialist independent national economy of the DPRK, a proud fruit of the Juche idea and Songun idea. Without the leadership of the great leaders comrade Kim Il Sung and comrade Kim Jong Il(which is now by carried forward by respected general Kim Jong Un) none of this would be possible. Indeed the launch of the Unha-3 will be a fitting tribute to the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
Nowadays the DPRK is rushing ahead in the vanguard of the CNC revolution under the banner of Songun. No imperialist sanctions can stop it.
Some countries have already tried to speak ill of the planned rocket launch in the DPRK and the US even plans to blackmail the DPRK into not launching the rocket. No one ever questioned the right of the US to have a space programme so why should they take issue with the DPRK’s space programme. It is the independent and sovereign right of the DPRK which no one should interfere with.


Launch of Satellite Kwangmyongsong-3 Is Legitimate Right of DPRK: KCNA

Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) — Some forces are letting loose a spate of gossip as regards the launch of Kwangmyongsong-3, an earth observation satellite manufactured by the DPRK by its own efforts and with its indigenous technology.

The hostile forces including the U.S., Japan and south Korea let loose outbursts that it will be a “missile launch”, “a serious provocative act of threatening the peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia” and “a violation of the UNSC ‘resolution’.”

This is, in a nutshell, a base move to deny the DPRK’s right to use space for peaceful purposes and encroach upon its sovereignty as it is typical of the hostile policy toward it.

The peaceful development and use of space is a universally recognized legitimate right of a sovereign state. The satellite launch for scientific researches into the peaceful development and use of space and economic development can by no means be a monopoly of specified countries.

As a matter of fact, many countries and regions of the world are deepening scientific researches in the use of outer space and putting them into practice at present, the age of latest science and technology.

Growing strong with each passing day is the international trend of energetically pushing forward the manufacture and launch of satellites and joining in it.

The DPRK’s satellite launch is a matter pertaining to the sovereignty of the sovereign state.

As the DPRK has already clarified, Kwangmyogsong-3 is a precious result of scientific researches conducted by scientists and technicians of the DPRK in order to develop and utilize working satellites indispensable for the country’s economic development, pursuant to the government’s policy for the peaceful development and use of space.

When the DPRK launched two experimental satellites, it strictly abided by relevant international regulations and practice.

As regards the projected launch of the working satellite, the DPRK sent necessary information to the relevant international bodies according to international regulations and procedures and expressed the will to invite experts and journalists of other countries to view the launching station.

This being a hard reality, the hostile forces are vying with each other to find fault with the DPRK’s projected legitimate satellite launch. This is a move to step up their hostile policy towards the DPRK as it is a sinister and deliberate anti-peace action aimed at provocations.

Moreover, the U.S., Japan and south Korea have neither justification nor face to talk about someone’s satellite launch.

It is the U.S. that is hell-bent on espionage against sovereign states with the help of so many spy satellites in the space. Japan is rushing headlong into launching spy satellites and establishing its own system of space espionage, dreaming of a military giant. South Korea was shameful to have failed twice in its attempt to launch a satellite entirely with other’s help. South Korea has neither justification nor face to chide someone’s satellite launch.

The hostile forces are persistently insisting that the DPRK’s satellite launches are “missile threats” and “provocations” because they consider its dignity, might and scientific progress as a thorn in their flesh.

Explicitly speaking, no one can tolerate the double yardstick and double standards in the issue of satellite manufacture and launch.

The hostile forces are sadly mistaken if they think the DPRK will cancel the already projected satellite launch due to some forces’ accusations over the above-said matter.

Intolerable are the dastardly acts to use the DPRK’s satellite launch for peaceful purposes as a lever for political, military and economic pressure upon it.

No one has the right to take issue with the DPRK’s projected satellite launch this or that way. -0-


DPRK to launch satelite Kwangmyosong-3

See video from KCNA


Pyongyang, March 10 (KCNA) — The south Korean puppet group is waging unprecedented anti-DPRK smear campaign, taking advantage of the great loss to the nation.

The whole world expressed condolences irrespective of differing ideology, political view and language and regardless of diplomatic relations and borders and present unfavorable relations with the DPRK. But the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors committed crimes against humanity and nation, leaving an indelible disgrace in the nation’s 5 000-year history.

The south Korean puppet group has left no space-time, means and ways untried to harm and slander its fellow countrymen.

It put the whole of south Korea on an emergency alert and mobilized all mechanisms and forces inside and outside the puppet regime to escalate confrontation and smear campaign against the DPRK.

It set in motion not only government-run media but private-run media outlets inside and outside south Korea. It used the doctrine of fascist maniac who claimed that “Hundred times of lying will make it truth”, and accepted the experience of its U.S. master’s smear campaign against the Soviet Union that “media brought about a ‘victory’ which was impossible by nuclear blackmail”.

Involved in the campaign were all sorts of hack media, typically the notorious Chosun Ilbo, Choongang Ilbo and Dong-A Ilbo and broadcasting organizations including KBS, MBC and Yonhap News which turned into waiting maids of the traitor as well as Nocutnews, Daily NK and the Strategic Information on North Korea Service Centre run by human scum.

The group defamed the tears of profound grief shed by the fellow countrymen, saying that it was “forced sorrow and the DPRK army and people were directed to do so”. It hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK by distorting the news about the ceremony of bidding farewell.

It cooked up the groundless stories about “Jasmine revolution of the north Korea version” and the Chinese army’s “entry into Pyongyang”, talking about “confusion” and “instability” in the DPRK.

The enemies’ smear campaign targets the 3rd and 4th and even 5th and 6th generations of the revolution who have not experienced trials. They are taking into account the transition now taking place in the DPRK at a time of historical turn of the revolution. It has reached the worst level in its wicked, mean and reactionary nature.

They take turns to air false data, using a stereotyped way of citing the words of a “news source” to cover the nature of falsehood and fabrication. This is aimed to make the public accept it as the world opinion, and create mistrust, misunderstanding and confused view on the DPRK among the international community and south Korean people.

They misused modern IT means and put into use some right-wing conservative media as well as paid hack papers and writers in Japan and Europe.

The group of traitors’ smear campaign against the DPRK has earned an ill fame as the most cruel and sordid one unprecedented in its program and most mean and dirty unparalleled in its form and method.

The U.S. backs the group’s frantic smear campaign against the DPRK.

The campaign is, in essence, a continuity of the moves to stifle the DPRK and a psychological warfare of Asian version aimed to bring down the DPRK, pursuant to the scenario of the U.S. policy toward the DPRK

Its program, method, political motive and financial background indicate the U.S. implications.

A U.S. foundation receiving the budget from the U.S. Department of State openly declared on February 13 that it would keep funding 15 non-governmental organizations in south Korea despite the reduction of the budget of the Department as “north Korea is fairly important region among more than 100 countries the foundation supports”.

The NGOs of south Korea are organizations breeding plots against the DPRK such as Daily NK, the “Broadcasting for Reforming the North” and “Citizens Federation for Human Rights in the North”.

The U.S. plans to apply the experience of psychological warfare which it used in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the “Orange Revolution” and “Spring of Mideast” operation and proxy wars fought by local persons in a bid to realize its policy toward the DPRK.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula is so tense with the world’s biggest nuclear war hardware amassed, and it is in a war state as neither legal nor institutional mechanism for curbing a war are in place.

It is general practice of modern war that operation of mental and psychological means precedes the all-out operations of physical war means.

Today’s frantic psychological warfare amounts to a preemptive attack ahead of tomorrow’s physical war.

The enemies should clearly understand the DPRK.

The DPRK has its own mode of counteraction capable of resolutely coping with any political provocation and cunning psychological warfare of the enemies and striking them at one blow.

It is as foolhardy as trying to sweep the sea with broom to try to break the great mental power and indomitable spirit of the DPRK army and people who have never shaken on their way despite the severe storm of history.

On the contrary, the persistent psychological campaign of the hostile forces will only reveal the shameful nature of those in grip of extreme horror and despair, mental oppression and degradation, in fear of the might of Juche Korea and Songun Korea which is becoming increasingly powerful and prosperous.

The enemies’ intensified campaign, oblivious of the lessons of history will touch off stronger hatred for the enemies and class awareness of all the servicepersons and people and encourage them to defend the idea, social system and cause of the DPRK.

The enemies who recklessly run amuck will meet a miserable end of history in the face of the firm spirit of anti-imperialist struggle and final war to be waged by the DPRK army and people. -0-

UK KFA slams Lee Myung Bak puppets

London 4th of March

The UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a statement on the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula.
We, UK KFA , note with grave concern that thanks to the Lee Myung Bak puppet regime the situation on the Korean peninsula is now on the brink of war. The Lee Myung Bak regime, a neo- colonial puppet of the US , has driven the situation to extremes by slandering and defaming the supreme leadership of the DPRK , as well as holding aggressive war exercises with its master the US (even inviting observers from the UK and other satellite countries of US imperialism.) This comes on the heels of earlier provocative actions such as declaring an alert during the mourning period, an action that unbiased public opinion found difficult to understand and hold live fire exercises in the tense West sea region.
UK KFA supports the will and resolve of the people of the DPRK to settle accounts with the Lee Myung Bak puppet regime.
If peace is to be preserved then Lee Myung Bak and his clique must go . The following measures should be taken

Lee Myung Bak, Kim Kwan Jin and Jong Sung Jo to removed from office at once
All the above to be put on trial for crimes against the Korean nation
Key Resolve and Foal Eagle to be cancelled at once
All US troops withdrawn from the south of Korea

The south Korean puppet regime has no legitimacy, it was created by the US imperialists at bayonet point many years ago. It is a corrupt regime which is dependent on the US and Japan . There is a big gap between the rich and poor in south Korea. The south Korean puppets have no place to slander the DPRK . It is the south Korean regime that needs to be overthrown by a democratic uprising of the people.

UK KFA support the struggle of the Korean people against the Lee Myung Bak regime and the resolve of the people,army and party of the DPRK to defend Juche socialism

KCNA Commentary Blames Touch-and-Go Situation on Korean Peninsula on Lee Myung Bak

Pyongyang, March 4 (KCNA) — A touch-and-go situation is now prevailing on the Korean Peninsula.

The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, triggering off towering grudge of the people in the DPRK.

The army and people of the DPRK are now swearing to wipe out the group of Lee Myung Bak, Kim Kwan Jin and Jong Sung Jo.

The Lee group of traitors is to blame for turning the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia into the most dangerous hotspot overnight.

Obsessed by escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen, Lee had temerity of defaming the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK which represents the life, destiny and future of the nation.

The Lee group’s provocation is a thrice-cursed crime that presupposes a war. It deliberately and systematically escalated military tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Aside from its crimes after coming to office, the group leveled guns at the mourners in the north, creating war-like atmosphere.

The puppet group, aligned with outsiders, constantly staged joint military drills.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula has been tense in the past but never before has such an acute phase of confrontation been created and such a big danger of a war prevailed as today, given the enemies’ defamation of the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

No one can vouch for peace and stability in Northeast Asia, to say nothing of the Korean Peninsula, now that dark clouds of a war hang over this land due to the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors.

This has become clearer as the army and people of the DPRK vowed to launch an all-out war of retaliation to wipe out the group of traitors and its stooges.

The Lee group of traitors will be given no space to stay on earth as they have defamed the dignity of the DPRK’s supreme leadership and pushed the regional situation to the brink of war.

The guns of the DPRK are leveling at human scum.

The army and people of the DPRK will deluge the matchless war maniacs and disgusting men with powerful fire so that they can not find even a place to get buried. -0-


Spokesman for CPRK Slams Hooliganism Committed by Lee Myung Bak Group

Pyongyang, March 4 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea on Sunday issued a statement denouncing the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors for committing the most hideous hooliganism recently.

Not content with inciting extreme hatred and hostility toward fellow compatriots in the north, the Lee group carelessly hung portraits of the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu who are the destiny of the Korean people on walls and doors, scrawling unspeakable defamatory words below them, the statement says, and goes on:

The human history records many ill-famed tyrants and warmongers but does not know such worst cacodemons in the world as the Lee group which openly committed such evils against fellow compatriots.

This is the most hideous unethical acts stunning the world in the civilized era in the 21st century and the height of thrice-cursed barbarism.

That is why the army and people of the DPRK are shouting with towering indignation “Let’s finish off all those who hurt the dignity of our supreme leadership”, “It is not enough to kill them with a millstone”, “They should be hung to death” and “We should turn their bases into seas in flames”.

Voices are growing stronger among south Korean public circles chiding and condemning the Lee group’s barbarism, terming it “dangerous reckless acts quite contrary to the faith of the compatriots in the north who regard the supreme leader as their life and soul.”

The Lee group committed again such thrice-cursed crimes against the compatriots grieving over the loss of the father of the nation. These shuddering barbarities clearly prove that they are the sworn enemy.

The recent most hideous provocation was not something committed by individual service members of the puppet army.

This was deliberate provocation orchestrated by traitor Lee Myung Bak steeped in anti-DPRK confrontation hysteria to the marrow of his bones and brass hats such as Defense Minister of south Korea Kim Kwan Jin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Jong Sung Jo who are heinous war gangsters.

The above-said reckless acts are nothing but their last-ditch efforts to drive the south Korean people and puppet army into the confrontation with the DPRK and a war for invading it by maximizing hostility toward it, rally conservative forces in the run-up to the “general election” and thus stay in power.

It is long since the Lee group was reduced to human scum as it has been hell-bent on confrontation.

It was Lee and his group who masterminded the frantic firing at the boards symbolic of the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK in drill grounds of the puppet army and reserve forces last year. It was again the group of traitors who ordered puppet officers to paste huge slogans hurting the dignity of the DPRK at barracks, gates and walls and their soldiers to shout anti-communist slogans after getting up and before going to bed and during their training and mealtime.

The recent behaviors of the Lee group brought to daylight that though it is letting loose such rhetoric as “dialogue” and “flexibility,” it is working with bloodshot eyes and malice to do harm to the headquarters of the DPRK behind scene.

The DPRK will give such ignorant and uncouth confrontation fanatics as the Lee group no space to remain on this land, much less dealing with it.

The act of hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK is nothing but frenzy which deserves severe punishment as it is to do harm to the lives of the army and people of the DPRK.

The hearts of the service personnel and people of the DPRK are burning with towering anger and resentment at the above-said hideous provocation and firm resolution to annihilate the enemy.

The world will clearly see how they will erupt. Leader, give us an order!

The army and people of the DPRK are fully ready to wipe out the enemy, keeping pace with the dynamic footsteps of the great illustrious commander of Mt. Paektu.

The sacred war has already been declared.

The Lee Myung Bak group, hideous human poisonous herbs, sources of all sorts of evils and group of traitors for all ages, will never be able to escape the most miserable fate as the primary target of the nation’s judgment.

The DPRK will punish without mercy anyone who hurts the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK even a bit as solemnly declared in the statement issued by the spokesman for the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army.

The group of traitors should anticipate a terrible heavy fire to be made by the KPA like a roar of a tiger in Mt. Paektu. -0-


Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea issued Saturday the following statement:

The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors has embarked upon the road of kicking off again DPRK-targeted Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises in league with the brigandish U.S. imperialists, defying strong domestic and foreign public protest and condemnation.

Huge troops of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and their strike means have already been deployed in south Korea and in its vicinity and huge forces of the three services of the puppet army have been put on a wartime posture.

Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are unpardonable war hysteria kicked up by the hooligans to desecrate our mourning period and an unpardonable infringement upon our sovereignty and dignity.

This is, at the same time, a blatant challenge to peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and an undisguised act of disturbing them.

The on-going development goes to prove that the Lee group which is more dead than alive, forsaken by the times, is still resorting to the last-ditch moves for war, backed by its American master.

In view of the prevailing situation, the National Defence Commission of the DPRK clarifies the following principled stand internally and externally:

First. Our army and people will foil the moves of the group of traitors to the nation and warmongers at home and abroad for a new war with a sacred war of our own style.

We have so far made every possible effort to avert a war and defend peace with a high degree of patience and magnanimity.

The Lee group and the warmongers at home and abroad are, however, unhesitatingly plunging to the road of an adventurous war, dreaming of “Egyptian style change” and “Libyan style victory”, ignorant of who their rival is.

War maneuvers staged against the belligerent party are, in essence, a silent declaration of a war.

The declaration of the war is bound to be accompanied by a corresponding physical retaliation.

Now that a war has been declared against us, the army and people are firmly determined to counter it with a sacred war of our own style and protect the security of the nation and the peace of the country.

The target of this war is the Lee group and hordes of warmongers at home and abroad.

The Lee group is hordes of traitors for all ages as it is rubbing salt into the wound of the compatriots grieving over the great loss to the nation through a renewed saber-rattling, not content with the high treason it had already committed during that period.

The U.S. imperialists are the sworn enemy keen to launch another war of aggression to impose “American style political mode” upon us, not content with the painful tragedy of division forced upon our nation, the tragedy that has lasted for more than half a century.

The sacred war will make a clean sweep of the Lee group and those warmongers from this land by the war mode of our own style, our strong striking means unknown to the world.

Second. The just struggle of the people in the south and overseas compatriots will be further intensified to bring down the Lee regime under the motto of peace against war.

The Lee group is nothing but human scum which had been forsaken by all Koreans already long ago.

“Myung Bak, quit” and “Let’s judge the Lee Myung Bak regime and set up a new government for national reconciliation.” This is the shout of the political and social circles in south Korea and the mind-set there.

The Lee regime is little short of a ship in distress which began sinking in face of the stormy waves of the angry public.

We admonished the group enough to make it understand and set an example in the four years of its office and showed it through an actual battle what our strike that turned waters into a sea in flames.

This being a hard reality, the Lee regime is still persisting in sycophancy, submission and treachery, failing to come to its senses.

That is why we branded the group of traitors as the one which should not be let to go scot-free.

In response to the mind-set in the south, our army and people will encourage and firmly back the people in the south and overseas compatriots in their nation-wide struggle to bring down the Lee regime in the idea of attaching importance to the nation and putting it above anything else and from a patriotic stand.

Third. Our army and people will show the U.S. imperialist warmongers hell-bent on war of aggression and intervention what their arms and real war are like.

It is the U.S. imperialist aggressors who are chiefly to blame for having driven into a phase of war the unstable situation on the peninsula where neither war nor peace has persisted for such a long period. It is again those warmongers who have staged ceaseless provocative war maneuvers in south Korea and in its vicinity, pursuant to their scenarios for a war of aggression against the north to confirm their feasibility.

In view of the intensified moves of the U.S. imperialists to ignite a war against the DPRK, they will shatter reckless military provocations, arms build-up and war maneuvers with increased posture to fight a resolute battle against the U.S. and launch a struggle of high intensify to drive out of this land the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces, the main hurdle lying in the way of achieving peace and security on the peninsula.

They will always keep the bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and centers for their military operations against the DPRK within striking range and wipe them out at a single blow, should they provoke us.

Nuclear weapons are not the monopoly of the U.S. We have war means more powerful than the U.S. nukes and ultra-modern striking equipment which no one has ever possessed.

The U.S. is sadly mistaken if it thinks it is safe as its mainland is far away across the ocean.

There is no limit to the striking intensity and range of our army and people to wipe out the aggressors.

It is their unchangeable stand to show the enemy what their arms and real war are like.

The ongoing struggle to bury the group of traitors and warmongers at home and abroad is a patriotic struggle on which the destiny of the nation in the new century of Juche year hinges.

No force on earth can overpower the single-mindedly united army and people of the DPRK.

Under the leadership of the peerless brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu they will usher in a new era of national reconciliation and peace and prosperity proudly and forcefully, shattering every war move of the enemy.
