There has been a lot of hype and hysteria over the annoucment of
the Supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea ,
Marshal KIM JONG UN , that the DPRK was in the final stages of
preparation for the test of an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile.
This resulted in a firestorm in the imperialist media , US state dept
officials threatened the DPRK with yet more sanctions and the
incoming President of the US, one Donald Trump arrogantly but vaguely
said it would never happen. Of course Juche Idea and Songun idea
followers of the world including the Association for the Study of
Songun Politics UK and Juche Idea Study Group of England, warmly
applaud these advances in the Juche-orientated self-defence
capability of the DPRK !
The DPRK has been subjected to sanctions by the UNSC for testing
missiles and in fact even launching non-military civilian research
satellites such as the Kwangmyongsong 3.2 and Kwangmyngsong 4. Not
only sanctions by the UNSC by "additional " and
"independent " sanctions by the US, UK , Japan , EU and
south Korea. The DPRK has become the most heavily sanctioned country
in the world. When Marshal KIM JONG UN proclaimed that the
DPRK ICBM test preparation are nearing completion there were shrieks
and howls from Western politicians , UN bureaucrats and the media
that it is "illegal " for the DPRK to have an ICBM !
In December India tested the Agni V ICBM and recently Pakistan
tested the Babur 3 nuclear missile. Some attention was given this in
the media though not much. There was no referral to the UNSC . No
hype or hysteria about "illegal ICBMS" etc . A nuclear
conflict on the Indian subcontinent between could potentially wipe
out hundreds of millions of people and have devastating consequences
for the world but there is a virtual silence from those countries
that so noisily condemned the DPRK !
Why the extreme hypocrisy of the US imperialists and other
imperialists ? Why it is okay for India and Pakistan to test ICBM's
yet it is 'illegal' , a crime and something that Donald Trump
vacuously says he will make sure will never happen ? I can remember
in September 2016 speaking to my guide and she said that she could not understand why some countries were so opposed to the
DPRK's space development and tried to prevent it? Indeed why? The
answer is basically simple.The US imperialists and international
reactionaries primarily oppose the DPRK's nuclear and missile
programmes not basically they are a threat to international security
and world peace but because the DPRK is a socialist country, in fact
nowadays virtually the only socialist country in the world and
upholds anti-imperialism, independence and the Juche idea. Surely
missile tests by India and Pakistan are equally a threat to peace and
security but these tests never run the gauntlet of hostility from US
imperialism and its acolytes because these are capitalist countries and also both have relations with
the US. It should also be pointed out that the US and other Western
countries have carried out many ICBM tests as well as nuclear tests.
Therefore their condemnation of the DPRK is doubly and triply
hypocritical. It is not motivated by a desire to reduce tension in
the world and achieve world peace by its in reality motivated by a
deep, pervasive and pathological hatred of the DPRK for being a
socialist country and for its unique people centred philosophy of
Juche and sturdy independence which underpinned by Songun politics.
When the US and others demand the "complete,
verifiable, and irreversible dismantlement" of
the DPRK nuclear and missile programmes, what they really mean is the
complete, verifiable, and irreversible dismantlement of the DPRK's
socialist system , no less , and the restoration of capitalism in the
DPRK. No one should be taken in by spin of the imperialists !
