Kim Jong Il and Songun Politics

 Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- When the DPRK is seen as the spindle of independence, it can be said that the United States, styling itself as a Pacific country, is a blade attached to it. If the spindle rotates, its blades will naturally move along it, controlling the global wind. After all, one can say that the DPRK is in the position of holding the helm of a new trend of the world politics.
    This is a phrase of a Western political commentator's article.
    Inheriting the revolutionary cause of Songun (military-first) started by President
Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il clarified the philosophical principle that Songun precisely represents independence, dignity and patriotism. And he had pursued the Songun politics to display the dignity and stamina of the country and the nation.
    He inspected the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on August 25, Juche 49 (1960). Since then, his guidance for the strengthening of the revolutionary armed forces had continued without letup.
    Thanks to his energetic and ceaseless military inspection and guidance, the KPA grew up to be a powerful revolutionary Paektusan army, equipped with modern means of attack and defence.
    When the U.S.-led imperialists clamored about "collapse of north Korea" in the 1990s and the new century, he raised higher the sword of Songun.
    Under the leadership of Kim Jong Il, who propelled the revolution and construction with the People's Army as a driving force, the motive force for the Songun revolution was further strengthened, a great upsurge was witnessed in the economic construction and the Songun culture prevailed over the whole society.
    Witnessing the reality of the DPRK, the world's progressives have zealously hailed the Songun politics as an ever-victorious banner for national sovereignty and independence against imperialism.
    A renowned historian of Russia said that the new history of Songun politics made by Kim Jong Il is a distinguished feat of world historical significance.
    The validity and vitality of the Songun politics, the DPRK's politics for independence, are now being displayed to the full under the guidance of supreme leader Kim Jong Un. -0-
