Defence of Country Is Manifestation of Most Ardent Patriotism: Rodong Sinmun
| Pyongyang, October 23 (KCNA) -- To defend the country is an obligation as descendants of President Kim Il Sung and soldiers and disciples of leader Kim Jong Il. It is a manifestation of the most ardent patriotic loyalty.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a by-lined article.
The destiny of the country represents that of the nation and individuals, the article notes, and continues:
The Korean people's great history of the struggle to defend their country is associated with the noblest outlook on the country that it means its leader.
During the Fatherland Liberation War the army and people of the DPRK fought a war against the U.S. imperialists with the firm faith that the fate of their country and their own destiny would be unthinkable without President Kim Il Sung.
The defence of the country is an important work to protect the sovereignty of the country and the nation.
This is clearly evidenced by the life led by the Korean people in sorrow before Korea's liberation and the miserable plight of the peoples of different countries whose sovereignty is violated by imperialists.
The defence of the country is of weighty significance in protecting the country's human and material resources and making them contribute to the nation's prosperity.
Promising talents of various countries are being sold overseas and their underground resources, precious assets for the nation's prosperity, are being looted by imperialists as they failed to defend their country. This tragic situation eloquently proves that the defence of the country means the most vivid expression of patriotism.
Witnessing the present reality, the Korean people keenly realize what great Songun leadership the Workers' Party of Korea has provided, making it possible to firmly defend their country by bolstering up the country's defence capability in every way.
Steadfast is the faith of the army and people of the DPRK to make steady progress under the uplifted banner of Songun, regarding the country's defence as a manifestation of most ardent patriotism in the on-going general offensive to build a thriving nation.
