The Korean People's Army was founded by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG on the 25th of April 85 years ago . Today the very words Korean People's Army and the name of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN strike fear into the hearts of the US imperialists and other reactionaries. Watching the grand military parade on the 15th of April 2017 in Pyongyang the capital of Juche Korea we became even more convinced of the invinciblity of the Korean People's Army , the Juche-orienated people's revolutionary armed force.
The foundation of Anti-Japanese Peoples Guerrilla Army, in 1932, by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG, a gifted military strategist and ever -victorious iron willed brilliant commander, constitutes the bedrock of the Songun revolution.
The Korean People’s Army, under the wise leadership of the great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG, took over and carried forward the traditions of the anti-Japanese armed struggle. It is based solidly on revolutionary comradeship. Moreover a tradition of army -people unity was created and today flourishes in Songun Korea.
Under the wise leadership of the great generalissimo’s KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL the KPA grew into steel strong ranks each soldier being a match for a hundred enemy soldiers. The KPA inflicted a crushing defeat on the US imperialists in the great Fatherland Liberation War of 1950-1953.The KPA also defeated the US in the ‘Pueblo incident’,'EC121 incident’, ‘Panmunjom incident’ of 1976 and the 1994 helicopter shoot down incident.
The KPA became a true Juche orientated revolutionary armed force and is the army of the party, the working class and the leader. New theories of warfare have been created. Moreover under the leadership of the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung the KPA stuck to class and revolutionary principles, the revisionist and opportunist “non-class" theories were soundly smashed, The leadership of the party over the armed forces was maintained and enhanced unlike some countries where socialism was frustrated. The KPA is truly an anti-imperialist, anti-revisionist army.
The might of the KPA was further strengthened under the leadership of supreme commander KIM JONG IL, who practised Songun politics giving priority to the KPA regarding it as the central pillar of the revolution. The KPA under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader the KPA grew stronger in terms of ideology and politics but also materially. It is now equipped with the latest weaponry and has its own independent deterrent force. The KPA under the command of the Songun supreme commander comrade KIM JONG IL and respected general KIM JONG UN smashed the provocations of the south Korean puppets in November 2010 turning Yongphyong island into sea of flames The KPA now possesses the most up to date military hardware including long range missiles, SLBMS and a nuclear deterrent.
The KPA which holds tight the arms of Songun has been ever-victorious over a period of eight decades. The KPA, the vanguard force of the Songun revolution, has defeated the imperialists many times, and under the leadership of supreme commander KIM JONG UN will defeat them again.
The glorious KPA which inherits and continues the traditions of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army is the guerrilla army of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un ready to win the great war for national reunification.
Seeing the impressive and highly disclipined parade of the Korean People's Army whilst visiting the DPRK for the celebrations of the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG I was totally convinced that the Korean People's Army led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN can defeat the US imperialists if they attack the DPRK and also liberate south Korea and reunify Korea.
Today the destiny of world socialism depends on the rifles of the Korean People's Army headed by supreme commander Marshal KIM JONG UN. The DPRK is on the frontline of the struggle between socialism and imperialism. It stands guard over the independence of the DPRK and the people-centred socialism, the authentic socialism. Long live the Korean People's Army the glorious and invincible revolutionary army of Songun !
