On Sunday 14th of May 2017 at 2 minutes to 5 in the morning, under the guidance of the dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , the Hwasong-12 rocket of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea blasted off from a mobile launcher. With a burst of bright red flame, that seemed to engulf the launcher the rocket soared majestically into the sky .It flew 787 kilometres reaching a height of 2 111.5km. The thundering roar of the rocket heralded a new stage in history in the history of Korea and the world . The Hwasong-12 rocket is the harbinger of a new era which will see the total defeat of US imperialism and the reunification of Korea on the basis of total independence.
The Korean Central News Agency reported that " A test-fire of new ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 was successfully carried out on Sunday by scientists and technicians in the field of rocket research, who are bravely advancing toward a new goal to be proud of in the world, true to the far-sighted idea of Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, for building a nuclear power."
Thus the DPRK took another great stride towards being a Juche nuclear power and creating a level playing field with US imperialism. In the early 20th century Korea lost its independence and became a complete colony of vicious Japanese imperialism partly because it feudal rulers abject ideology of dependence on big powers but because at the time Korea could only produce simple and ineffective rifles but now the DPRK can produces rockets and nukes which can obliterate the US imperialists from the face of the earth.
The Hwasong-12 rocket is another Juche weapon meaning that it has been using exclusively the resources , materials and technology of the DPRK. This is why the DPRK missile and nuclear programme is unaffected by the sanctions of the US imperialists and others. It is a delusion to think that they can halt the DPRK's rocket programme with sanctions.
The rocket test sent shivers down the spine of the US imperialists , their vassals , lackeys and cohorts. The notoriously right wing British newspaper the 'Daily Mail' on May 17th wrote "North Korea's latest missile test marks a significant step forward towards Kim Jong-un's regime producing an ICBM capable of hitting the US mainland". The imperialists are loathe to admit but not only has Obama's policy of "strategic patience " failed but also the ultra-hardline policy of Trump. Basically respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has run rings around them !
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN oversaw the test .He is a man of action not an armchair or deskbound leader but had got up earlier in the morning to supervise the rocket launch at a time when most Western politicians would be sound asleep or maybe munching toast and marmalade in their comfortable and luxurious mansions!. Observing the test respected Marshal KIM JONG UN said
" the successful test-fire of Hwasong-12, a demonstration of high-level defence science and technology of the DPRK, is of great and special significance for securing peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region and is the greatest victory of the Korean people....the DPRK is a nuclear power worthy of the name whether some one recognizes it or not."
Basically the DPRK had done what it said it would do and test a ballistic missile that was capable of carrying a heavy nuclear warhead. Actions always speak louder than words . The DPRK guided by the great Juche idea and Songun idea is a country which always means what it says and says what it means. The DPRK a country of some 120,000 or so square kilometres with a population of some 25 million was put under immense pressure, in fact intimidation and bullying , not to the test the rocket. The opposition came not just from the US imperialists and their crazy buffoon like President ,Trump, but also the big power-chauvinists and international revisionists who had whined and bleated that the
DPRK should 'exercise restraint' etc .Such countries dance to the tune of the US imperialists and in fact basically sold out to US imperialism years ago proclaimed a so-called 'open door ' to the imperialists and capitalists and'reform ' and 'opening up' !Today it is Juche Korea that is upholding
the line of anti-US,anti-imperialist struggle and is ready to battle it in the final showdown with
US imperialism should the US imperialists provoke a war . Indeed the Hwasong-12 rocket test shows that the DPRK under the leadership of dear respectedMarshal KIM JONG UN is holding fast to the revolutionary line of Songun by defying the threats ,diktat and bullying of the US imperialists . The DPRK was totally unbowed by the successive UNSC sanctions that have applied to the DPRK since 2006. Honest minded people have to admit that it is only the DPRK in the world that is standing up to US imperialism and is not afraid of it .
Those US and Western commentators and some others who bleat and moan about the DPRK developing missiles that can deliver a nuclear payload forgot that for several decades during the Cold War the US imperialists had to face the nuclear missiles of the socialist USSR (which was admittedly under revisionist leadership) and this was considered a normal state of affairs . Now the US imperialists will have to live facing the nuclear missiles of the DPRK . If they do not like this then they should end their hostile policy towards the DPRK and pull out every single US soldier and every piece of US military hardware out of south Korea.The US imperialists need to wake up and accept that the fact that Korea is going to be reunified under the leadership of dear respected Marshal
KIM JONG UN.
Unlike the former revisionist USSR and some other so-called socialist countries the DPRK does not
kneel down before US and world imperialism on the plea of 'peaceful co-existence . The DPRK is a revolutionary anti-imperialist socialist country of Juche which stands in confrontation with the US imperialists. It will carry out the anti-imperialist struggle until the last. The DPRK is a socialist fortress of Juche and Songun which stands imposingly on the frontline between socialism and world imperialism. It is the DPRK that will win final victory in the confrontation with the US and succeed where the big socialist countries in the past failed.
The test fire of the Hwasong-12 powerfully demonstrated the genuinely awe inspiring power of Juche and Songun, as well the correctness of the line of building the economy and nuclear force in parallel set down by the Workers Party of Korea and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN, the superiority of the DPRK independent national economy based on self reliance and the Juche-orientated socialist system. The progressive people of the world including Juche Idea and Songun idea followers shared the great jubiliation of the Korean people at this latest victory of Songun , Juche and self-reliance !
