The 55 years of Songun revolutionary leadership that started on the 25th of August 1960 have been 55 years of victory and glory . The Songun revolutionary leadership that was started by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL is today continued and carried to new heights by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN.
The Songun revolutionary leadership began in the heady days of the struggle against US imperialism and modern revisionism. In the days of the early 1960s the US imperialists were increasing their pressure on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea , the bastion of socialism and independence . The US imperialists shipped nuclear weapons and missiles into Korea. Allied to the US imperialists , were the modern revisionists who wanted to force Korea to give up its independence and compromise with and capitulate to US imperialism just like they were doing.
Songun was pioneered by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG during the years of the anti-Japanese armed struggle and the visit of chairman KIM JONG IL to the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su no 105 Tank Division on the 25th of August 1960 signified the continuation of this. As dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN wrote;
"The Day of Songun, when General Kim Jong Il started his leadership of the Songun revolution, is, together with the day of the founding of the KPA (Korean People's Army), a historic day when an important milestone was set up for the history of building up our revolutionary armed forces and the history of our country. As there was this significant day, a historic turn could be brought about in developing our revolutionary armed forces and implementing the cause of the Juche revolution, and the history and traditions of our sacred Songun revolution that had been pioneered and developed by force of arms, achieving victory, could be carried forward continuously.
Songun is a proud tradition of the Korean revolution which was pioneered by Comrade Kim Il Sung and led by him and Comrade Kim Jong Il and the banner of victory and glory."
Under the Songun based revolutionary leadership of leader KIM JONG IL the KPA and Korean people smited US imperialism with full force.In January 1968 the USS Pueblo an armed spy pirate ship of the US imperialist aggressors was captured by the KPA navy off Wonsan(the Pueblo can be seen today on the bank of the river Taedong).The US imperialists demanded the immediate return the ship falsely claiming that it was in “international waters” and the cowardly revisionists tried to advise the DPRK to send the ship and its crew back.
The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL said
"Nowadays people of a certain country are saying that if a war breaks out in Korea it will be serious problem,and “advising us” it would be better to have the Pueblo quietly released.This would mean making a concession to US imperialism,and we can never do such a thing.A concession to US imperialism means submission and surrender.Since the our People’s Arm“Ny did not capture the “Pueblo” on the sea off the United States,but when it was in violation of our country’s territorial waters and engaged in in acts of espionage,we need to neither make any concession to the Americans or pander to them”The DPRK resolutely stood firm and refused to do so until an apology from the US was issued .In 1969 the US imperialist spy plane EC121 tried to infiltrate into DPRK but was shot down by the KPA airforce.In 1994 a US army helicopter infiltrated into DPRK airspace and was brought down by one shot by the KPA.
The US imperialists seeked to isolate and stifle the DPRK by inventing the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula leading to the 1st ‘Korean nuclear crisis’ in the 1990s and the 2nd one in the 2000s.The DPRK refused to bow down and instead declared a semi war state and announced its intention to withdraw from the one sided and iniquitous NPT in 1993. This move stunned the US and they had to enter into talks.
When Bush vociferated about a “rogue state” and “axis of evil” and raked up the 2nd nuclear crisis the DPRK under the Songun supreme commander comrade KIM JONG IL responded with a series of hardline measures namely withdrawing completely from the NPT and declaring itself a nuclear state.This was not mere words,the DPRK successfully carried out nuclear tests in October 2006 and May 2009. The nuclear device was the fruit of self reliance based 100% on Korean resources and technology.
Thus under the Songun revolutionary leadership the DPRK has been fortified ever more strongly as powerful socialist state of independence.A country of Juche which is able to do what it likes and say what it like no matter what others may say or think.Comrade KIM JONG IL brilliant commander of Songun declared on the 1st of January 1995,at the Takasbol army post that the Korean people had a choice of either being an independent people adhering to socialism or colonial slaves of imperialism.
Today the Songun revolutionary leadership is carried forward by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN who said " Counter provocations with an immediate counteroffensive, and an aggressive war with a war of justice for the country’s reunification–this is our principled stand and unshakable will.
Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has upheld the Songun revolutionary anti-imperialist idea and placed considerable emphasis on anti-imperialist class education including the rebuilding of the Sinchon museum.
The Songun revolutionary leadership started by the great leader eternal chairman KIM JONG IL and carried forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN will be ever-victorious !
