Actions against War Assure Peace: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- It presents itself as a task of the times whose fulfillment brooks no further delay to create a peaceful environment and it is desire common to humankind.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in an article.

Peace can never be ensured by appeal or begging, the article says and goes on:

As proven by history and reality, if a country yields to the imperialists' policy of strength, it will only suffer humiliation as a slave, not peace.

Peace can be achieved only through a struggle. This is a bitter lesson taught by human history.

As long as imperialism exists on this earth, the desire of the people for peace can never be won by talking only.

Powerful military muscle is prerequisite to protecting the dignity, sovereignty, peace and security of the country and the nation.

Korea, once big powers' theatre of fierce scramble for bringing it under their thumb, has emerged an ideological and military power by dint of Songun which no one dares provoke. This reality greatly stuns the world.

The DPRK can never remain a passive onlooker to the situation prevailing in the country where the dark clouds of a nuclear war are always hovering over it.

It is the DPRK's right to protect its sovereignty, peace and dignity with powerful military muscle for self-defense.
