History of Songun Policy in DPRK
Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il inspected the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on August 25, Juche 49 (1960), starting his Songun (army-first) revolutionary leadership. This was a manifestation of his strong will to accomplish the cause of the Songun revolution, pioneered by President Kim Il Sung, with arms.

That day, he gave important instructions for the increase of the unit's combat power and strengthening of the KPA while spending hours with servicepersons.

Looking at the slogan "Let us defend with our very lives the Party Central Committee headed by the respected Comrade Kim Il Sung!" displayed over the front gate of the soldier's hall, he said it is a good slogan fully representing the steadfast will of the servicepersons and civilians. Reflected in the slogan is the strong demand that all the people should absolutely trust in and follow only their leader and sacrifice themselves for the party and leader, he said, adding that the army was the first to put up such slogan.

Then, he stressed that the servicepersons should always remain faithful to President Kim Il Sung and, to this end, it is needed to intensify the ideological education in the KPA.

And he advanced tasks to strengthen the KPA's combat ability in every way, underlining the need to conduct intensive combat and political training.

His inspection made a new milestone in developing the KPA into an army of the leader and party.

Kim Jong Il's cause of the Songun revolution is now creditably carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un, and the army and people of the DPRK are rallied as one in mind around him, ready to go along the road of the Songun revolution forever.
