Why the Hostility to People's Korea and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN ?-special article by Dr Dermot Hudson
These days there is talk of war with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea all the time in the capitalist media . There is open talk of pre-emptive strikes The hostility of the imperialist bougeois ruling class for the DPRK has grown to extreme levels . All the time there are new sanctions against the DPR. For example on the 4th of May the US passed a new sanctions law, " the Korea Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act" and threatened to re-list the DPRK as a so-called 'state sponsor of terrorism ' , which is rich coming from the US the biggest ever state sponsor of terrorism . US secretary of State Tillerson called for countries to "downgrade or sever relations with the DPRK ".
There is a massive military build-up on and around the Korean peninsula with a 2nd aircraft carrier on its way to Korea. Countless military exercises such as "Foal Eagle " and 'Key Resolve' have been staged . Not only have the US and south Korea carried out exercises against the DPRK but also Japan(the traditional enemy of the Korean people ) , France and Britain have been dragged in.
The military exercises carried out by the US and south Korea have included so-called 'beheading ' or 'decapitation ' strikes aimed at eliminating the supreme leadership of the DPRK and also targetting
nuclear and missile bases of the DPRK.
All this has gone in tandem with one of the biggest pyschological warfare and propaganda operations of all time which has probably been on a much bigger scale and instensity than the Cold War. Not only are there hostile stories in the media but also films, novels ,video games . The supreme leadership of the DPRK has been subjected to unceasing vilification and abuse. Anti-DPRK propaganda has now risen to industrial levels !
A turning point in the hostility to the DPRK and the demonisation of the DPRK was the publication of the UN Human Rights report on the DPRK in February 2014. This was a real put -up job by US imperialism and its lackeys. The release of the Report was deliberately advanced by one month. Basically it was presided over by the Judge Kirby of Australia , a man with US connections , and a number of hand-picked pro US figures who did not visit the DPRK but instead listened to criminals who have left the DPRK to evade punishment.
Really the US and Western hostility towards the DPRK exceeds that of cold war hostility to the Soviet Union and Western hostility to the Islamic religion. Why is this ?
Firstly , pure and simple it is because the DPRK is a socialist state . The DPRK virtually alone in the
world is upholding the banner of socialism .The DPRK rejects the capitalist market economy and has a planned economy . At the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea a five year economic plan was adopted.
Secondly, the DPRK is the most independent country in the world , it rejects the American empire , it refuses to allow foreign military troops or bases to be stationed on its soil . The DPRK is strongly
anti-US and anti-imperialist. It carries out strong anti-US, anti-imperialist education.Other countries have wobbled in their anti-imperialist stand or have cozied up to US imperialism .
Thirdly, dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN declared that the DPRK that "The permanent strategy of our revolution and its final victory lie in marching straight along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism" thus sternly rebuffing the idea of
"reform" and "opening up ". Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN made it abduntantly clear that he would follow in the footsteps of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL and that he would defend their legacy and carry-out their behests.
Fourthly, there is particular and definitive hostility to dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as the leader of the DPRK . The US imperialists and other imperialist and capitalist powers had hoped that
when the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL passed away on the 17th of December 2011 that
either respected Marshal KIM JONG UN would not be the successor or that he would pursue
a 'reform' and 'opening up' line . Basically the US and the capitalist countries hoped that the DPRK would abandon Juche and divert its train from the socialist road to the capitalist road . The US
sent certain US sports figures and businesspeople to try and soften up the DPRK , also all kinds of dodgy NGOs were formed in Western countries to try and influence the DPRK and to effect the so-called 'peaceful conversion' strategy or Dulles plan . This did not work . Plan B of the imperialists and also of the Chinese revisionists was to carry out a coup in the DPRK and overthrow the supreme leadership and replace it with a puppet of both US imperialism and Chinese revisionism . This did
not work either , dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN saw through the plot and rallied the Workers' Party of Korea against the modern factionalist group who were the agents of the US imperialists, the West and the big-power chauvinists . On the 13th of December 2013 the traitor was liquidated by the Korean people ! The imperialists went mental , it was like the DPRK had carried
a 1,000 nuclear tests , they foamed at the mouth because the traitor had been executed and with
the execution their hopes of 'reform ' and 'opening up' flew out of the window. The door slammed shut on the imperialists and revisionists !
Fifthly, the DPRK is based firmly on Juche, self-reliance and self-development . The DPRK has in fact being under the blockade and sanctions of the US for decades but has prospered and built socialism splendily . The DPRK gives lie to the idea that globalisation, markets , free trade are
nessecary for prosperity and increased living standards. Indeed the example of the DPRK holds a strong attraction for the peoples of the third world and even developed countries that want to reject globalisation.
So the reason for the crazy,demented and all pervasive hostility to People's Korea which threatens to boil over into a physical war is that the DPRK is a an independent , anti-US ,anti-imperialist socialist country of Juche which refuses to 'reform' and 'open up'. The imperialists and globalisers hate the DPRK because they cannot knock it over.
It is the duty of all socialists ,progressives,anti-imperialists and those who support independence to rally around and defend People's Korea. In this regard the activities of the UK Korean Friendship
Association , Juche Idea Study Group of England and Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK are essential.
