Chairman Kim Jong Il inspects a KPA unit
Prospect of Juche Revolution Is Rosy Thanks to Day of Songun
August 25 is the Day of Songun (military-first) in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The high dignity of Kim Il Sung‘s Korea, inexhaustible strength of the powerful revolutionary Paektusan army and bright future of the Juche revolution would be unthinkable without Aug. 25, the Day of Songun.
Thanks to the day Chairman Kim Jong Il started his Songun leadership the DPRK could advance along the road of prosperity, demonstrating its invincible dignity and might.
Kim Jong Il was a peerlessly great man who provided an eternal foundation for the DPRK’s prosperity and its people’s happiness under the banner of Songun.
He advanced the unique army-building program for training all servicepersons to be Juche-type revolutionaries loyal to the party and the leader and conducting army-building and military activities strictly on the basis of the Juche idea in January 1975 and energetically guided the work to carry it into practice.
In those days he ceaselessly inspected military posts in the frontline area and on islets and sometimes guided military trainings aboard warships, planes and tanks, always finding himself among KPA officers and men.
When President Kim Il Sung passed away suddenly, Kim Jong Il visited the Dwarf Pine Post of the KPA, declaring his strong will to accomplish with arms the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered by the President.
He set forth the idea of giving precedence to the army over the working class for the first time in the history of the world revolutionary movement and worked heart and soul to strengthen the KPA, main force of the Korean revolution, into the invincible Paektusan army.
His Songun leadership characterized by his policy of attaching importance to ideology was the basic source of strength which made it possible for the DPRK to display its might as a power of single-minded unity in which the unity of the service personnel and people in their thinking and work style was successfully achieved.
The policy of attaching importance to science and technology along with the policies of attaching importance to ideology and arms is one of the three mainstays for building a thriving nation provided by him.
The immortal history of his Songun leadership is the most vivid manifestation of the strong determination to carry forward and accomplish the idea and cause of President Kim Il Sung down through generations.
There was a precedent in the world in which a revolution was frustrated when an old generation of leadership was replaced by a younger generation. But it knows no such loyal successor as Kim Jong Il who creditably carried forward the idea and cause of the leader and put the dignity and might of the country and nation on the highest level.
He was possessed of the firm faith and matchless pluck unshaken in any political storm or thunderclap.
The history of his Songun leadership represents an epic of trust in comrades, service personnel and people.
His Songun revolutionary leadership and exploits are now being successfully carried forward and developed by Marshal Kim Jong Un.
Thanks to Kim Jong Un the DPRK is dynamically advancing along the road of independence, Songun and socialism indicated by President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, and the exploits Kim Il Sung performed by winning the victory in the war and Kim Jong Il‘s Songun leadership feats are shedding more brilliant rays as an eternal treasure of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il‘s Korea and the glorious tradition of victory in the Songun revolution is given steady continuity in the DPRK.
