Champion of World Peace
Pyongyang, December 24 (KCNA) -- The Korean people are greeting the 19th anniversary of Kim Jong Il as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), December 24.
In the 1990s the imperialists, availing themselves of the collapse of socialism in some countries, directed the spearhead of attack to the DPRK, which was keeping to socialism.
The Korean people, under the outstanding leadership of Kim Jong Il, frustrated their effort to isolate and stifle the DPRK and defended the country's security and sovereignty, as well as socialism, by dint of Songun (military-first) politics, considerably augmenting the position and dignity of the nation in the international arena.
As socialist Korea has been strengthened militarily thanks to his Songun-based leadership and politics, it has been possible to avert a military conflict in Northeast Asia, including the Korean peninsula, and prevent the outbreak of another war in Korea.
With the Korean people making a breach in the international political structure influenced by high-handedness and unilateralism, the imperialists have been in trouble in their anti-socialist strategy for dominating the world.
The progressive people across the world are admiring Kim Jong Il for successfully leading the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle and the cause of global independence.
