Songun Politics Provides Sure Guarantee for Defending Peace and Achieving National Prosperity: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, July 17 (KCNA) -- Songun politics is a mighty treasured sword to reliably defend the peace on the Korean peninsula and the security of the nation and a great banner providing a sure guarantee for achieving the prosperity of the nation, says Rodong Sinmun in article Thursday.

It says:

It is the hard reality that if the military muscle of a country is weak, it is impossible to protect its sovereignty and vital rights, and it would become a plaything of the imperialists and fall victim to their policy of aggression.

The situation on the Korean peninsula is so tense for a long period of the nation's division by foreign forces that it may suffer the disaster of a nuclear war anytime.

However, a war has been averted under such a tense situation and the provokers have not realized their attempt at invasion. This is ascribable to the powerful military deterrence of the DPRK.

Independence, the life of the nation, and the security and happiness of the fellow countrymen would be unthinkable without the Songun politics.

The future of the nation is linked with the lasting peace on the Korean peninsula and national reunification. It is very clear that there can be no bright future of the country and the nation as long as foreign forces are trying to dominate the whole of the Korean peninsula by force and the tragedy of national division persists.

Challenges of foreign forces for aggression to lay a stumbling block in the way of carving out the independent destiny of the Korean nation should be deterred by dint of Songun.

No Korea and its nation without the Songun politics shedding its rays as the symbol of independence and dignity.
