The Korean People's Army militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun !-special article by ASSPUK and JISGE leader Dermot Hudson

      London 25th of April Juche 104(2015)
April 25th is the anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army . It was actually founded as the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army which then became the Korean People's Revolutionary Army in March 1934. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG who inherited the 2 pistols from his father keenly realised that Korea could not achieve independence simply by begging for it or by peaceful means so embarked on the road of armed struggle, the road of Songun saying " Weapons are our life and soul , oppose armed force with armed force "

Right from the start the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrrilla Army(AJPGA) of Korea was an anti-imperialist revolutionary armed force composed of the workers and peasants which fought for national liberation but also proletarian revolution.  As the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG said "Let us all raise higher the red banner of the revolution and launch a vigorous armed struggle against Japanese imperialism in order to win the historic cause of national liberation"
  The AJPGA was based firmly on the Juche Idea The AJPGA fought in the revolutionary  spirit of self-reliance. They either captured  weapons from the Japanese imperialists or made their own . Once some people had the hope then the then Soviet Union would supply them with a grenade factory but such a thing never materialised so instead the AJPGA partisans made their own grenades , the "Yanji bomb" or "Yongil bomb ". Nowadays the successor of the AJPGA the Korea People's Army has its own nuclear 'Yanji bomb'  made with 100% Korean resources and labour and ready to deter any imperialist aggression !
   The AJPGA was transformed into the Korean People's Revolutionary Army  in March 1934. Under the command of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG , a gifted military strategist and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander , the KPRA fought many battles against Japanese imperialism  including the famous battle of Pochonbo. The guerrillas of the KPRA were vastly outnumbered by the Japanese imperialists who also had huge supplies of military hardware and modern weapons but led but the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG they did not flinch or waver but fought in the spirit of militant anti-imperialism and the spirit of fighting the enemy without  compromise. The Juche theory on warfare teaches that the outcome of war is not decided merely by weapons alone but those who hold those weapons .

     During the great victorious Fatherland Liberation the regular revolutionary armed force of the DPRK , the Korean People's Army (founded on the 8th of February 1948) fought against the US imperialists and their south Korean puppets and also troops from 15 satellite states of US imperialism such as the UK . By applying Juche-orientated tactics and Songun based tactics the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG led the KPA and Korean people to a great victory over US imperialism the first time that the US imperialists had been defeated.
After the Korean war the US imperialists continued their provocations against the DPRK but were smashed each time by the heroic KPA under the command of the great revolutionary leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG. This included the "Pueblo" incident of 1968, the EC121 incident, the Panmunjom incident and others.
The great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG not only put forward the concept that the People's Army is the army of the working class,the army of the revolution and the army of the party but also that each soldier is a match for a hundred .The line of making the army a cadre army in which each member could carry out the duties of the next rank. The line of arming the whole people and fortifying the nation was also implemented. Of course the modern revisionists seized with fear of imperialism and obsessed with "peaceful co existence" got their lackey in the DPRK the anti party counter revolutionary factionalists to oppose the slogan " a match for a hundred" but the rank and file KPA soldiers responded by chiselling the slogan into a rock.
   Self-reliant defence is one of the central pillars of the Juche ideology. The DPRK developed self- reliance in defence and was not dependent on other countries for its defence. The great leader comrade Kim Il Sung realised both through the experience of the anti- Japanese revolutionary struggle and the Fatherland Liberation War as well incidents outside the country such the Cuban missile crisis(in which the revisionist USSR betrayed the Cuban people by doing a deal with the US imperialists) that a country should only rely on itself for defence and not outsiders.
   Great generalissimo KIM JONG IL, the son of partisans, continued splendidly the cause of Juche army building and developed the Songun revolution in depth . He began giving on the spot guidance to the KPA on the 25th August 1960 when he visited the Ryu Kyong Su Guard no 105 tank unit(the KPA tank unit that was first to liberate Seoul in June 1950) . He took a keen interest in military affairs and wrote a lot of works on military affairs. He became the supreme commander of the KPA in 1991.
   The KPA grew even stronger under the leadership of Songun supreme commander comrade KIM JONG IL. The KPA faced down the US imperialists in the first and second 'nuclear crisis' .The US imperialists were also humbled in the 1994 'helicopter incident' in which a KPA soldier brought down a Yank helicopter with a single shot.
The KPA is a strong army,patient  but strong. The US imperialists and south Korean puppets ceaselessly carried out war provocations in 2010 .The KPA repeatedly warned them to desist. The foolish south Korean puppets ignored the warnings. Recklessly in November they carried out live fire exercises in the West Sea area and fired shells into the territory of the DPRK damaging houses. The KPA retaliated blasting Yongphyong Island. The puppets and the US imperialists blustered about retaliation etc but in reality could do nothing against the mighty KPA of Songun commanded by the great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL and general KIM JONG UN .

Today the KPA inheriting the militant anti-imperialist revolutionary spirit of the 
anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army upholds the anti-US, anti-imperialist and proudly carries on its tanks and military hardware the slogan "Let Us Wipe 
out the US imperialist aggressors , the sworn enemy of the Korean people ". No other army in the world has such a militant anti-imperialist line  and indeed we see the spectacle in so many countries of selling-out and  betraying the revolution, of people embracing and grovelling to their enemies .
   The KPAcommanded by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN stands ready not only to deter US imperialist aggression but to reunify Korea . As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN said "Counter a provocation with a prompt counterattack and a war of aggression with a great, just war for national reunification!' This is our principled stand and steadfast will."
Thus the Korean People's Army is the militant revolutionary anti-imperialist force of Songun. Glory to the KPA on its 83rd anniversary.
