Kim Jong Un Lauded by Korean Resident in U.S.
| Pyongyang, September 19 (KCNA) -- Ri Jun Mu, a Korean resident in the U.S., posted on his Internet homepage on August 31 an article titled "Wooden boat of love sailing to Jangjae Islet defying waves" at a time when the news that Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un inspected island defence detachments in the biggest hotspot in the southernmost area in the southwestern sector of the front made a big splash in the world.
The article said:
The world was shocked by a documentary film showing Marshal Kim Jong Un, a new leader of the north, inspecting Jangjae and Mu islets in the biggest hotspot in the southwestern sector of the front aboard a wooden boat. Media vied with each other to make special reports. World's attention focused on him.
The hot wind of Kim Jong Un is sweeping not only among the people in the north but in the south and overseas Koreans' community.
A small wooden boat was sailing in the West Sea where clouds of a war were hanging low. Who would have thought of Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the DPRK, taking such a simple wooden boat!
He was accompanied by only some people. It gave delightful and pleasant feelings to watch him talking with them. His appearance amounted to the affectionate look of a parent going to meet his sons and daughters living in far away places.
In fact, many people do not know where such small islets as Jangjae and Mu islets are in the West Sea.
But Kim Jong Un went to the island defence detachments in the biggest hotspot in the world where KPA soldiers are always standing in acute confrontation with hostile forces. War maneuvers for aggression are being staged in the nearby area of the south side almost every day. He went to soldiers who are standing guard over this foremost post.
His appearance was, indeed, one of their real father and the great leader.
But it was not always smiles that he had on his face. When he stepped on the islet and watched the enemy's trench in the opposite side, his eyes were alight with fire.
"If even a single shell is fired to our territory, promptly deal deadly strike and lead it to a great war for national reunification!"
Kim Jong Un issued a stern order while inspecting the island defence detachments that day.
Hearing this news on TV, all the service personnel and people of the north shouted hurrah at the top of their voices, looking up to him.
They were full of the conviction that they would certainly reunify the country under his leadership.
The moment, his congratulatory speech which I heard at Kim Il Sung Square on the morning of the Day of the Sun this year came across my head. He said, "I will become a comrade-in-arm sharing the destiny always with comrades on the sacred road of the Songun revolution and discharge my obligation for the country and the revolution true to the behests of Comrade Kim Jong Il."
The people across the country who were hearing his speech at that time and all other Koreans in the south and abroad who heard this news were overwhelmed by inexpressible excitement.
Jangjae Islet! Mu Islet! They are islets whose names they have never heard before but they were greatly excited.
These islets not well known among the people are now called islets where Kim Jong Un's love for the people has been brought to bloom like a legend and mysterious islets which would mercilessly shatter the provocation of aggressors.
His image on the documentary film was affectionate and generous. One could feel that he has magnanimity big enough to embrace all the Koreans. It was the appearance of the great leader who would embrace 70 million fellow countrymen in the north and the south and abroad.
He held a child in his arms. This was a scene of human sincerity which is more valuable than millions of tons of gold.
His appearance was so simple and ordinary. One could not find any coercion and a bit of repugnance in his look. His virtues and greatness attracting all could be felt.
Overflowing in his shining eyes were the love for his country and soldiers, burning hatred for the enemy and brave spirit. His appearance that day was enough for the Koreans to give vent to their deep reverence and trust in their supreme commander. The leader and the people have become as one like this. This was a scene which so vividly showed the course of the single-minded unity in the DPRK lauded by the world.
The Korean nation accepted sycophancy and national ruin like their destiny, unable to defend itself as it has had no correct leadership even though it was proud of the history and brilliant culture spanning five thousands of years. This was the appearance of the Korean nation as a miserable and weak colonial nation one century ago. But the DPRK has now become a full-fledged political and military power and working people there are demonstrating their dignity as the independent people whom no one dare provoke.
The people in the north find the factor of this in being blessed by the illustrious leaders and generals. The people in the south admit this. This is the pride of not only the north but the whole nation. With this pride of the DPRK, waves off Jangjae Islet are splashing and waves off Mu Islet are dancing joyfully.
Jangjae and Mu islets of reunified Korea are visible. Happy sounds of laughter of the families ringing out from these peaceful and beautiful islets, the earthly paradise full of joy, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un will resound through the world by waves.
