Rodong Sinmun on Demonstration of Single-Minded Unity

   Pyongyang, September 20 (KCNA) -- The drive to glorify the 60th anniversary of the DPRK as a grand festival of victors was a historic advance that strikingly demonstrated the DPRK's might of single-minded unity that has grown stronger in the course of the Songun revolution.
    Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article.
    The servicepersons and people of the DPRK made every day of the all-out charge for glorifying its diamond jubilee worthwhile with pure conscience and noble sense of obligation, their hearts replete with profound gratitude and reverence for President Kim Il Sung who built the most advantageous and dignified socialist power in Korea, the article says, and goes on:
    Monuments to revolutionary activities of the President were erected at different units across the country to convey his undying exploits down to posterity. They include mosaic "Comrade Kim Il Sung, Iron-willed Commander Who Defeated the U.S. Imperialists" which was erected in the Jonsung Revolutionary Site.
    A high-pitched drive was conducted in all domains and at all units of national economy to make a breakthrough towards building an economic power in the spirit of self-reliance based on modern science and technology.
    Okryu Restaurant, Chongryu Restaurant and the Taedongmun Cinema House were successfully rebuilt or renovated as required by the new century. Such monumental masterpieces of the era as orchestra and chorus "Snow Falls" were created and the extravaganza "Arirang" and mass gymnastic display "May the Motherland Prosper" have been performed before full houses so far, demonstrating the might of single-minded unity.
    The steadfast resolution and will of the army and people of the DPRK to deeply trust and ardently follow General Secretary Kim Jong Il only were impressively manifested in all venues of functions held across the country in celebration of its 60th birthday including the national meeting and the national photo exhibition.
    The parade of the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the torchlight soiree of youth and students celebrating the 60th birthday were an epical representation of the single-minded unity of the DPRK.

Rodong Sinmun on Originality of Songun Politics

   Pyongyang, September 21 (KCNA) -- The originality of the Songun politics of the Workers' Party of Korea, which opened up a new path in socialist politics, is expressed in the fact that this politics put forward the Korean People's Army as the core detachment, the main force of the revolution, says Rodong Sinmun Sunday in a signed article.
    Basing itself on the deep analysis into the development of the times and changed social and class relationship, the WPK advanced the idea of putting the army ahead of the working class and put forward the KPA as the core detachment and the main force of the revolution, the article notes, and says:
    The WPK put forward the KPA as the main force of the revolution after scientifically analyzing the character and role of the revolutionary army from the Juche-oriented viewpoint. The KPA is the revolutionary armed forces standing guard over the anti-imperialist military front, the main front of our revolution. Our country is now in direct confrontation with U.S. imperialism. Under this actual condition, it will be impossible to defend the destiny of the country and the nation and socialism without reliance on the KPA. As the KPA safeguards the defence lines of the country impregnably with arms, the security of the country and the nation is guaranteed and Korean socialism is making long strides following up the victory century after century. Neither any class nor any group of society can play the role of the KPA standing guard over the first defence line of the country.
    The KPA has creditably discharged its role as the main force and shock force not only in the defence of the country but also in socialist construction, true to the Songun revolutionary leadership of the WPK. There is no other group in society that is stronger than the KPA in the revolutionary spirit, sense of organization and the fighting capacity. So, the WPK put forward the KPA as the main force of the revolution with unshakable trust in the KPA, which is the standard-bearer of the revolution devotedly defending the security of the party and the country, socialism and the people and which is the strongest in the spirit of collectivism, the revolutionary spirit, the sense of organization and the fighting capacity.
    The KPA has grown into the invincible revolutionary armed forces strong in ideology and faith under the leadership of the great leader and the great party. As this army was put forward as the main force of the revolution, our politico-ideological might has been considerably enhanced in the era of Songun and epoch-making miracles ceaselessly wrought in the defence of socialism and the building of a great prosperous powerful nation.

    Pointing out that the persons detained, prosecuted and arrested by dint of the NSL have grown in numbers after emergence of the present "government", they said that the ongoing repressive security campaign by dint of evil law puts the past period of fascist dictatorship to shame.
    Contending that the NSL should be abolished at any cost this year, 60 years after its emergence, they declared that they would conduct full-scale activities to crush the repressive campaign and get the NSL abrogated, centering in Seoul.
    A press release read out at the conference warned that if the Lee Myung Bak "government" oppresses the progressive forces by dint of the NSL it will face the same miserable end as the fascist dictators did.
