Indomitable Spiritual Strength of Korean People
Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- The Korean people have turned out as one in the struggle for implementing the militant tasks put forward by the joint New Year editorial with a high level of ideological consciousness that one's own power and consciousness are best.

They are a strong-willed people who have carried out any difficult and gigantic undertakings with the ideological and mental power.

Having a strong spiritual strength, they could defeat U.S. and Japanese imperialisms which were incomparably superior in numbers and technical equipment, demonstrate the dignity of the Korean nation to the whole world and could build a powerful socialist country independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in defense on the war debris.

They could bring the unprecedentedly harsh "Arduous March" and the forced march to a victorious end because the army and people of Korea advanced vigorously through the difficulties with the strong spiritual strength.

The soldier constructors of the Anbyon Youth Power Station did things beyond human imagination with a firm determination that "We will never see the blue sky of the country before implementing the order of the Respected Comrade Supreme Commander!" This shows what marvelous miracles the mental power of people bears.

The revolutionary soldier spirit that came into being in those days spread all over the country like a prairie fire, creating the Kanggye spirit and kindling the torches in Songgang and Ranam. And the spirit displayed in Thaechon let the whole country seethe with the efforts to build a great, prosperous and powerful nation like an active volcano.

The grand monumental edifices erected on the land of Songun Korea and the successes made in the magnificent nature-remaking projects are all the fruition of the inexhaustible spiritual strength of the entire people who have turned out as one man.

The Koreans have become a people with a strong mental power as the Juche idea of President
Kim Il Sung lights the road ahead of them and General Secretary Kim Jong Il has implanted the confidence in victory and courage in their minds on the long journey of Songun leadership.
