Anecdotes about Kim Jong Il
Pyongyang, March 15 (KCNA) -- On March 17, Juche 86 (1997) leader Kim Jong Il published a famous work "On Learning from the Revolutionary Soldier Spirit".

From that time on, the revolutionary soldier spirit has become the ideological feeling of all the Korean people and their treasured sword for the building of a thriving nation.

The main point of the spirit is the spirit of devotedly guarding the leader, thoroughly implementing his orders and braving any sacrifice.

It was in this spirit that the DPRK launched satellites, made signal scientific and technological achievement, including CNC and nuclear fusion technologies, and set up new iron, vinalon and fertilizer production systems based on locally available materials and fuel.

When the United States and its allies were advertising "possible collapse of the socialist system in north Korea" and the world people were afraid for its rigorous situation, the Korean people brought about a great upsurge in economic sectors with a firm conviction of their victory. The song they sang at that time is "We Will Defend the Leadership of the Revolution at the Cost of Our Lives" and the slogan they held high is "Let us go the thorny path cheerfully!"

Through their experience, they have become convinced that the revolutionary soldier spirit makes it possible for them to accelerate the building of a thriving nation.
