Nationwide Anti-U.S. Resistance Called for

A spokesman for the North Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration in a statement Monday called for raising higher the flame of nationwide anti-U.S resistance.
The statement said that the south Koreans and overseas compatriots have courageously turned out in anti-U.S. resistance to cope with the U.S. imperialists and the warmongers at home and abroad keen on inflicting the holocaust of nuclear war on this land. The statement extended full support and solidarity to them.
The U.S. is talking about a "preventive war" and a "pre-emptive attack on the north" while egging the south Korean puppet warmongers on to them as part of war provocation hysteria. But this is never to "defend" south Korea, the statement said, and went on:
This is the revelation of the sinister intention of the American colonialists to exterminate the Korean nation, turn the whole Korean peninsula into a base to realize their strategy for putting Northeast Asia under their control.
The U.S. cooked up the UN "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK while viciously faulting the DPRK's just measures for bolstering nuclear force for self-defence. This is aimed to foster mistrust, antagonism, hostility and confrontation among Koreans, hinder national reconciliation and unity and prevent the independent reunification of Korea.
The U.S. imperialists are the sworn enemy as they extremely threaten the sovereignty and the right to existence of the Koreans and the common prosperity of the nation after dividing the Korean nation into two and as they stand in the way of the national reunification, the supreme desire of the nation.
All the Korean people will wage a nationwide anti-U.S. resistance and certainly settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists committing all crimes against the Korean nation and the south Korean authorities going reckless without reason while acting as a shock brigade in executing the U.S. traitorous and criminal moves for putting sanctions against the DPRK and stifling it.

The Koreans from all walks of life in the north and the south and abroad should raise higher the flame of nationwide anti-U.S. resistance to resolutely foil the U.S. imperialists' nuclear war moves against the north and realize the independent reunification of the country as early as possible through the great unity under the banner of By Our Nation Itself.

Rampant Human Rights Abuses within S. Korean Puppet Army Disclosed

The DPRK Measure Council for Human Rights in South Korea released an inquiry report on Monday to give a detailed account of the recent serious human rights abuses within the south Korean puppet army.
According to the report, a large number of suicides were witnessed within the frontline puppet army units in Kangwon Province of south Korea this year alone.
The report said:
Typically, a soldier hung himself by a tree to death on January 26 in Kosong area and a sergeant shot himself to death on the beach on April 10. A recruit was found dead in Cholwon area and a soldier shot himself to death in Hwachon County in May.
On August 9 a soldier was found dead with gunshot wound in a frontline unit in Phaju City, Kyonggi Province.
According to extremely curtailed data published by the puppet military, the number of soldiers now suffering from hypochondria and wanting to leave the army has reached more than 85 000.
Specifically, there are at least 80 000 "trouble-making and dangerous soldiers" who are apt to commit suicide or shooting spree within the army units alone.
Evil doers openly go on a rampage within the military in broad daylight. In July last a "feeding torture" case that occurred in a unit of the marines stunned the public. Wolf like superiors reportedly fed a recruit in a forcible manner to increase his weight to 90 kg and threatened to kill him if he vomited the food he had eaten.
A lawmaker affiliated to the Legislation and Judiciary Committee of the "National Assembly" of south Korea made public information submitted by a military court, which said one soldier is found dead in every four days within the puppet army and 70 percent of them are suicides.
According to a written inquiry conducted by the human rights centre of the puppet army into 100 women soldiers and officers, one of the five suffered sexual abuses.
Now the puppet army is plagued by the idea of "single golden chance" of the brass hats for getting windfall gains. Against this backdrop, human rights abuses are getting more serious within the puppet army as a "military mafia" is reigning over it.
Nevertheless, the south Korean regime is getting desperate in the racket for escalating confrontation with the compatriots in the north, far from tackling the serious human rights problems within the puppet army.

It provokes only side-splitting laughter that the regime is trying to pit the pack of depraved soldiers against the world's strongest army possessed of the invincible nuclear deterrent.

S. Korean Authorities Slammed for Calling for "Tightened S. Korea-U.S. Alliance"

A spokesman for the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation issued a statement Thursday denouncing the south Korean authorities for going reckless while calling for "tightened south Korea-U.S. alliance".
At a time when the U.S. war hysteria against the DPRK has reached the height and the situation on the Korean peninsula has reached the worst phase, the south Korean authorities and the puppet military warmongers are calling for "tightening south Korea- U.S. alliance", the statement said, and went on:
This reckless act little short of adding fuel to nuclear war moves of the Trump group is indicative of the stupidity and sycophancy toward the U.S. by the puppet group.
The pledge to "strengthen south Korea-U.S. alliance" is a commitment to act as a shock brigade in the war of aggression against the north which the U.S. master plans to stage. This is little short of plunging south Korea into unheard-of horrible disaster of a nuclear war.
The south Korean authorities should choose between two things: war to be unleashed by "tightened south Korea-U.S. alliance" or the peace to be achieved by anti-U.S. struggle.

If the south Korean authorities defy the mindset of the public and the demand of the whole nation and keep to the humiliating sycophancy toward the U.S. while currying its favour, they will not be able to evade the sternest punishment by history.

Korean Jurists Committee Terms UNSC's "Sanctions Resolution" against DPRK Illegal

The Korean Jurists Committee Thursday issued a statement terming as illegal the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" cooked up by the U.S. by abusing the UN Security Council over its test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14.
The U.S. fabricated the unprecedented harsh "sanctions resolution" which categorically cut off normal trade activities and economic exchange of the DPRK, the statement said, adding it is an unethical criminal act which contradicts paragraph 2, Article 1 of "International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights" which provides for not depriving a sovereign state of means of existence, and the act which runs counter to internationally recognized peremptory norm.
The UN Security Council is not an exception in the application of the peremptory norm, the statement said, and went on:
This being a hard reality, the UN Security Council has systematically fabricated the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" violating the rights to existence and development from 2006.
In particular, the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" 2371 which was fabricated under the pretext of the DPRK's test-launch of ICBM is aimed to completely prevent the DPRK's economic development and improvement of the people's living standard. Therefore, this is the criminal act fundamentally detrimental to peremptory norm.
Article 53 of the "Vienna Convention on Treaties" which stipulates the legal acts of states and international organizations says that "a treaty is void if, at the time of its conclusion, it conflicts with a peremptory norm of general international law". This goes to clearly prove that all the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" of the UNSC are null and void as they have systematically violated the DPRK's rights to existence and development.

The statement stressed that all the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" fabricated by the U.S. so far by abusing the UNSC should be immediately annulled and the U.S. should pay a high price for the crimes it committed against our state and people.

Kim Jong Un Inspects KPA Strategic Force Command

Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the Command of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) on Aug. 14.
He waved back to enthusiastically cheering service members and posed for a picture with them.
He went round historical mementoes and data displayed at the Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism Study Hall.
Looking round them, he recalled with deep emotion the great leadership feats of the brilliant commanders of Mt Paektu, recorded on every page of the history of the KPA Strategic Force displaying its might with the strength unprecedented in the world as a powerful strike service, symbolic of the dignity and power of Korea.
Then he listened to General Kim Rak Gyom's decision on the Strategic Force's plan for an enveloping fire at Guam at the command post.
He examined the plan for a long time and discussed it with the commanding officers in real earnest.
He praised the KPA Strategic Force for having drawn up a close and careful plan as intended by the Party and examined the firing preparations for power demonstration.
Being told by the commander of the Strategic Force that it is waiting for the order of the Party Central Committee after rounding off the preparations for the enveloping fire at Guam, he said with great satisfaction that the spirit of Hwasong artillerymen is very high and he was freshly determined, seeing by himself the combat preparedness and the sky-high spirit of the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit.
He said that the U.S. imperialists put their own necks into the noose through their reckless military confrontation racket, adding that he would watch a little longer the conduct of the foolish and stupid Yankees spending a hard time of every minute for their miserable lot.
He said that he wants to advise the U.S., which is running helter-skelter, driving the situation on the Korean peninsula into the worst brink of explosion, to take into full account the gains and losses with clear head, whether the present situation is more unfavourable for which side.
In order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the U.S. to make a proper option first and show it in action, as it deployed huge nuclear strategic equipment around the peninsula to provoke the DPRK, he said, adding: The U.S. should stop at once its arrogant provocation and unilateral pressure on the DPRK and provoke the latter no longer.
He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous actions around the Korean peninsula, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make a crucial decision as it had already declared, warning the U.S. that it should think reasonably and judge properly so as not to suffer another shame by the DPRK under the eyes of the world.
If the planned fire of power demonstration is carried out due to the U.S. rashness going beyond the limit line, this will be the most delightful historic moment when our Hwasong artillerymen wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks, he said, underlining the need to always stand on fire readiness for going into action once our Party decides.
Then the Supreme Leader went round a military training school and a gymnasium and called for firmly establishing Juche in education and steadily improving the quality of military training to prepare all the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit to be fighters good at the campaign of brains, well versed in the modern military science and technology, the enemy's changed ways of war and Korean-style war methods against them.
He stressed the need to establish a system of re-educating commanding officers and technical personnel of the Strategic Force in line with the modernization and upgrading of ballistic rockets.
Going round the supply service facilities of the large combined unit, including a dining hall of sub-unit, he showed paternal care for servicepersons' life.
He enjoyed a performance given by an art squad of the large combined unit at the soldier’s hall.
Expressing satisfaction over the good performance which vividly represented the operational mission and features of the Strategic Force and the desire, thoughts and feelings of the Hwasong artillerymen, he gave precious teachings for the art squad's performance activities.
The Strategic Force has a very important position and duty to play in carrying out the strategic plans of the Workers' Party of Korea, he said, calling on the Strategic Force to firmly establish the monolithic leadership system, the monolithic command and management system of the Supreme Commander over the nuclear force and further complete the Juche-oriented rocket strike methods.
Saying with deep trust that it is reassuring to have the KPA Strategic Force, reliable treasured sword guaranteeing the everlasting future of the country and nation, he expressed expectation and belief that all the officers and men of the Strategic Force would bring about a fresh turn in rounding off the combat preparedness, well aware of the important mission they have assumed before the Party, the country and the people.
With his deep trust, the officers and men of the KPA Strategic Force hardened their resolve to win the final victory in the standoff with the U.S. by scorching with super strong strikes the targets in south Korea, Japan, operational area in the Pacific and the U.S. mainland, flying the sacred red flags of the Party and flags of the Supreme Commander at every matchless launching pad once he gives an order.

Accompanying him was KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the C.C., Workers' Party of Korea.

The US Should Learn to Co-exist with the Nuclear-armed DPRK?

The nuclear confrontation between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the US has emerged as an urgent problem in the international political arena. The DPRK is developing various and diversified means of nuclear delivery one after another, and the US is trying its best to prevent the former from developing them. Describing the nuclear possession by the DPRK and its strengthening of its nuclear forces as illegal, the US is bringing international pressure to bear upon the country. The world is carefully watching the “nuclear tug of war” between them.

Is Nuclear Possession by the DPRK Illegal?
Is nuclear development by the DPRK an “outrageous” violation of the rules of the nuclear world?
The US and the DPRK have been hostile to each other for over half a century.
After Second World War, the US occupied the southern half of Korea, and unleashed a war (1950-1953) against the 2-year-old DPRK, threatening that it would use atomic bomb. After ceasefire, the US shipped into south Korea many nuclear weapons, and continued to threaten the DPRK with these weapons.
The DPRK, a non-nuclear state, acceded to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to remove the US nuclear threat. The treaty, adopted in 1968, stipulates that no country, except the then five nuclear powers, could develop nuclear weapons and the nuclear powers would not threaten non-nuclear states with nuclear weapons. However, in violation of this treaty, the US threatened and blackmailed the DPRK with its military capabilities, including nuclear weapons. Its attempt to isolate and stifle the country became more undisguised in the 1990s, when socialism collapsed in the east European countries; it put the DPRK on the list of countries for nuclear preemptive strike and branded it as part of the “Axis of Evil” and a “rogue state,” attempting to stifle it militarily.
Unable to leave its destiny at the mercy of the vulnerable treaty any longer, the DPRK made the final decision in 2003 on withdrawing from the treaty. Determined to cope with the increasing US nuclear blackmail, it developed nuclear weapons and declared in February 2005 that it possessed nuclear weapons. It succeeded in the first nuclear test in October 2006, and became a nuclear state.
After all, its nuclear possession was a measure it took to defend itself against the US high-handedness and violence, and the very one that made the DPRK do so is none other than the US.
The point is whether it was legal that the US, a nuclear state, threatened and blackmailed the then non-nuclear DPRK and whether it is unlawful that the DPRK has developed nuclear weapons for defending itself, for defending its right to existence. This unfairness and double standards are only driving the DPRK to further strengthen its nuclear forces.
Russian President Putin said at an international forum: Abuse of power in world politics is causing such a problem as the situation surrounding the DPRK, which is defending itself against outside pressure.
The standpoint of the DPRK is clear: As long as the US policy hostile towards it and its nuclear threat exist, it will never abandon its nuclear weapons but confront the US to the end to settle accounts.

The US Should Co-exist with a Strong Country
The US has now found itself in dilemma in the face of the DPRK’s lightning speed of nuclear possession and strengthening of its nuclear forces; the country is too strong to punish, and if it leaves the country at its own devices, it may make a breach in its nuclear ambition. It is clamouring for the outdated “sanctions” and “pressure” as the final resort, but “new sanctions” or “maximum pressure” cuts no ice with the DPRK, which has remained unperturbed in the decades of sanctions. And the DPRK is not a country, which would accept the unlawful sanction meekly.
What could be a way out for the US now?
When organizing the United Nations after the Second World War, some countries attempted to reject China in selecting the permanent member states of its Security Council. After much discussion, it was agreed it would be more reasonable to embrace the country with the largest population in the world than to reject it. So China, which at the time was weak in national strength and had little influence in the world, became a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Likewise, wouldn’t it be more sensible for the US to regard the DPRK, which is rapidly emerging as a nuclear power that cannot be slighted, not as its enemy, but as a partner suitable for co-existence?
In other words, it would be more practical for the US to recognize nuclear possession by the DPRK in special circumstances, conclude a peace treaty with it and establish friendly relationships with it. Then, the nuclear weapons in the hands of the DPRK would not pose any threat or danger against the US. And it would not shake the foundations of the NPT system, for the DPRK, though not a member state of the NPT, declared that it would fully perform its responsibility as a nuclear state.
The US should be pragmatic in approaching this problem.
It has become a fait accompli that the DPRK has possessed nuclear weapons whether the US recognizes it or not. The more intensified the US moves for sanctions are, the harder line the DPRK will take and the more solidly it will strengthen its nuclear forces. The DPRK has already proved that it possesses all the equipment and means related with nuclear weapons and has actual capability with which to strike the US proper.
Now, the US is on the crossroads, whether it would tighten the noose on its neck by itself by continuing to put pressure to bear upon the DPRK or it establish peaceful relations with the strong country and co-exist with it.

The US will have to be prudent in selecting its option.

American Policymakers Should Hurry Up

Former US Defense Secretary Perry once said: We must not view North Korea as we want but see it as it is. Over the past decades the US has adopted policies in anticipation of the country’s collapse, and now they prove to be a failure. The US should negotiate with it to reduce the danger of its nuclear weapons that can reach the US mainland.
This speech attracted the world’s attention. It was, in fact, the denial of the US government’s policy hostile to the DPRK that lasted for more than half a century, as well as an acknowledgement of the latter’s nuclear deterrent that has been built up in the long period.
As is well known, the DPRK sent a big “gift” to the US on its Independence Day by test-firing the ICBM Hwasong 14.
Twenty or so days after that, it succeeded in the second test-firing of Hwasong 14 on the occasion of July 27 that is celebrated as V-Day in the DPRK, the day when the US signed the Korean Armistice Agreement.
The ICBM climbed along the flight track up to 3 724.9km and flew 998km for 47 minutes 12 seconds, hitting the selected area in the open sea.
Through this test-firing, the country paraded its capability to launch ICBMs in any place and at any time, and it holds that the whole of the US mainland is within the range of its missiles.
Its possession of the ICBM that can strike any point of the US territory, as well as A-bomb and H-bomb, is proof positive that country’s national strength and strategic position have reached a new high.
To look back, American policymakers have resorted to vicious schemes in trying to bring the Korean people to their knees. However, their attempts were to no avail.
The nuclear stick policy prompted the DPRK to work out its own nuclear and missile programme and step up its implementation.
It is a pipe dream for the US to believe that it can stifle the Korean people and check their development by means of sanctions and blockade.
Its war moves and radical sanctions galvanized the Korean people, providing justification for the latter’s nuclear possession.
It is not accidental that international affairs experts comment that the DPRK is now capable of striking the US mainland.
All in all, the US policy towards the DPRK has turned out to be a fiasco.
If the US refuses to make a policy switch and come to the negotiating table, it will inevitably face a do-or-die nuclear war.
American policymakers are well advised to see the reality as it is and make a logical judgment. Conclusively, their hostile policy has bred nuclear threat from the DPRK.
The latter’s test-firing of Hwasong 14 for the simulation of its maximum range is a serious warning to the US. The message is clear. American policymakers have probably understood that if the US dares to provoke the DPRK, its existence will be threatened.
It is quite unquestionable that if the US clings to anti-DPRK policy, its mainland will face a greater threat of nuclear catastrophe.
American policymakers should immediately do something to prevent this disaster.


The US Mainland Comes within the Range of the DPRK’s Missiles

On July 28 the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea conducted the second test-firing of its ICBM Hwasong 14, to the horror of the US. Obviously, the whole of the US mainland comes within the range of the former’s missiles.
For the simulation of its maximum range, the missile was test-fired based on vertical launch technology. It climbed along the flight track up to the maximum height of 3 724.9km and flew 998km for 47 minutes 12 seconds, hitting the selected area in the open sea. This shows that the missile is capable of striking any point of the US mainland with an area of 9 383 123km2. By test-firing two ICBMs, the DPRK conducted a final check of all the technical features of its ICBM system including the maximum range of the missile capable of delivering a large nuclear warhead. Thus, it demonstrated to the world that it can hit the US mainland at any time and in any place.
American politicians already predicted such developments in February when the DPRK succeeded in the test-firing of its ground-to-ground intermediate-range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong 2. The chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives said that the fact that the DPRK’s target is all the 50 states of the US is becoming clear at a very fast speed. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also revealed his anxiety by saying that the DPRK is threatening to strike the US mainland. Actually, the second test-firing of Hwasong 14 proved that their apprehensions were not groundless.
What they fear is not just the ICBM itself. They are well aware that the DPRK is fully determined to strike the US.
The DPRK has already declared a decisive showdown with the US. It suffered heavy losses during the Korean war (1950-1953) ignited by the US, and over the past six decades it has been subjected to unprecedented political isolation, economic blockade and military pressure by the nuclear superpower. It stands to reason that the country is resolved to revenge on the US. Now it can be said with absolute certainty that the DPRK intends to achieve final victory not in the Korean peninsula but in the US mainland.
If the US dares launch a nuclear strike, the DPRK will turn it into a lake of fire; the US shall perish and the planet will not exist without the DPRK–this is the courage and will of the Korean army and people.

The US now faces a stark reality.

On the Strength of Songun

August 25 is not an ordinary day for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. On the day in 1960, Kim Jong Il (1942-2011), eternal Chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, started the Songun-based leadership by inspecting the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People’s Army.
For over half a century since then under his Songun-based leadership, the DPRK has always safeguarded its sovereignty and dignity with honour in the ceaseless confrontation with the United States which claims to be a “superpower.”
In January 1968 the US armed spy ship Pueblo, which had intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK and been conducting acts of espionage, was captured by the navy of the KPA. Availing itself of the incident, the US dispatched legions of its troops to the Korean peninsula, clamoring about retaliation against the DPRK. Dark clouds of war hung over the peninsula. The world people were apprehensive about the outbreak of a new war in Korea. The government of the Soviet Union advised the Korean counterpart to release the captured ship. At this juncture, Kim Jong Il stated that he would not release the crew of the Pueblo unless the Americans submitted a letter of surrender and that since the ship was Korea’s booty, he would not return it even if they presented it. The DPRK declared to the world that it would retaliate against the “retaliation” of the US and return all-out war for “all-out war.”
Utterly dispirited by the resolute countermeasures taken by the DPRK, the United States had no option but to sign its letter of apology in December that year, in which it acknowledged its hostile acts and assured that no US ships would intrude into the DPRK’s territorial waters in future. The then US President Lyndon Johnson lamented that it was the first letter of apology ever since the United States was founded.
The same is true of ensuing incidents: The US large espionage plane EC-121 was shot down after having intruded into the territorial air space of the DPRK in April 1969; and the US soldiers committed acts of provocation against the guards of the KPA at Panmunjom along the Military Demarcation Line dividing Korea into the north and the south in August 1976 but were severely punished. In those cases, too, the US made such rackets as if it would start a war at once, but was frightened by the decisive countermeasures and strong military might of the DPRK and gave up its attempts.
The first nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula between 1993 and 1994 was induced by the US, which falsely accused the DPRK of its nuclear issue and instigated the International Atomic Energy Agency to force the DPRK to receive its “special inspection” of the major military sites, while launching war rehearsals on a large scale in south Korea. Such being the case, Kim Jong Il issued an order of the KPA Supreme Commander on declaring a state of war readiness across the country. It was followed by the publication of a statement of the DPRK government that it would withdraw from the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty in order to defend its supreme interests of the country.
Finding itself in a dilemma by the bomb-like declarations of the counterpart, the United States was enforced to come to the negotiating table and sign the DPRK-USA Agreed Framework for solving the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula in a peaceful way. The US President Bill Clinton sent Kim Jong Il a letter of assurance, in which he ensured the sincere implementation of the US commitments under the Agreed Framework.
Afterwards, the US picked a quarrel with the DPRK in 1998 over its nuclear facilities for the peaceful purpose while making public the OPLAN 5027 for preemptive nuclear strike and intensifying pressure on it. To cope with this, the DPRK solemnly declared its stand that it had no other choice but to prepare its nuclear deterrent. The more pressure and threats the US applied, the more strongly the DPRK responded to it. The DPRK’s super tough countermeasures compelled the Clinton administration to confess its defeat.
Entering the new century, the Bush administration, branding the DPRK as part of “Axis of Evil” and announcing that it was a target of preemptive nuclear strike, became hell-bent on launching reckless moves of nuclear war provocation. Given the situation, the DPRK formally withdrew from the NPT and then stated its possession of nuclear weapons. It carried out missile launches and underground nuclear test, thus delivering a decisive blow to the US in its acts of arbitrariness and nuclear blackmail.
The US administration could not but make public the removal of the DPRK from the list of state sponsors of terrorism. The American magazine Newsweek carried an article about striking the DPRK off the list of states sponsoring terrorism. It said that President Bush informed the US Congress of crossing out North Korea from the list, which was an event symbolic of his surrender to North Korea.
So is the case with the DPRK’s launch of the second artificial satellite Kwangmyongsong 2 in April 2009. When the DPRK announced its launch programme, the US and other hostile forces made much fuss about it. Japan, having defined intercepting of Korea’s satellite as its national policy, deployed combat vessels in its attempt to hamper it.
Nevertheless, the Korean leader had the satellite launched as planned. He took steps to severely punish not only the enemy’s intercepting bases but their strongholds if they dared intercept it.
Indeed, Chairman Kim Jong Il was a peerlessly brilliant commander, who always won victory in the confrontation with the US in the latter half of the 20th century and the early 21st century by dint of Songun, defeating the successive US presidents and concurrent commanders in chief of the armed forces of the US–Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bush peer, Bill Clinton, Bush fails and Barack Obama.
Kim Jong Il once said that a powerful military strength supported him when he was taking on the US, a self-styled “sole superpower” in the world, with courage and pluck, and that as he had a powerful army and munitions industry he was at ease and did what he wanted to do.

His words still has a lingering effect on the international society.

Statement of DPRK Government


The Government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Monday issued a statement over the fact that the U.S. and other hostile forces, terrified at the growth of the DPRK's state nuclear force in quality and quantity, are steeped in the most intensive sanctions, pressure and provocations against it.
The statement says:
On August 6, the U.S. framed up "sanctions resolution" 2371 at the United Nations Security Council which is geared to completely block the DPRK's economic development and improvement of the people's livelihood, branding its test-launch of ICBM as "a threat to international peace and security".
This UN "sanctions resolution", to all intents and purposes, is an outcome of diabolical attempts of the U.S. to isolate and stifle the DPRK, which constitutes a flagrant infringement upon its sovereignty and an open challenge to it.
The DPRK's access to the strongest nuclear force is a fair and legitimate measure for self-defence to protect the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the high-handed and arbitrary acts of the U.S. which has made it its business to pursue the policy of extreme hostility and pose nuclear threat to the DPRK well over half a century.
The successive test-launch of ICBM by the DPRK was a stern warning to the U.S.
which, being entrenched far across the Pacific, wages reckless and perilous military provocation and despicable campaign of sanctions on the DPRK.
However, the U.S. goes more frenzied and desperate instead of accepting the DPRK's existence and learning to coexist with the latter. It is trying to drive the situation of the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war, running amuck to conduct missile drill against the DPRK and deploying massive strategic equipment to the peninsula.
It was against this backdrop that the U.S. manipulated UNSC to rig up the "sanctions resolution" more heinous than ever, placing a total ban even on normal trade activities and economic exchange, thereby disclosing before the whole world its evil intention to obliterate the ideology and system of the DPRK and exterminate its people.
On the other hand, the U.S. causes such a racket with no time to wipe their mouth, making impudent remarks that it is considering the so-called military option targeting the DPRK.
There are countries to which the ridiculous threats of the U.S. are working and there are countries which lie prostrate at the bluff of the U.S.
The U.S. claiming to be the "only superpower of the world" and the DPRK's neighbors hardly any smaller in size than the U.S. are all so frightened at merely two ICMB test-launches by the DPRK that they are making much a scene baying at each other. Watching them go frantic only redoubles the DPRK's pride in the country's great might and reaffirms its faith that the path it had chosen is the only way to survive and prosper.
The DPRK has already gained everything it needed while having everything wanted in its hands through an arduous struggle under the harshest sanctions regime created by numerous UN "sanctions resolutions" adopted at the instigation of the U.S during the last several decades. It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK would be shaken an inch or change its stance by the sanctions of this new kind imposed upon by the hostile forces.
As the U.S. launched full-scale provocation against the DPRK across all fields of politics, economy and military, nothing can alter the will and resolve of the army and people of the DPRK to respond by taking resolute retaliatory measures.
The DPRK Government solemnly states as follows to cope with the grave situation created by the frantic acts of the U.S. and other hostile forces;
First, the DPRK condemns in the strongest terms and totally rejects the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" of the UNSC rigged up by the U.S. and other hostile forces as a wanton infringement upon the sovereignty of the country.
The DPRK is taking measures to strengthen the self-defensive nuclear deterrence in order to counter the policy of extreme hostility and nuclear threat against it from the U.S., the biggest nuclear weapons state of the world. Terming these measures "a threat to international peace and security" is a gangster like logic indicating that the rest of the world should either become U.S. colonies serving its interests or fall victim to its aggression.
The countries, that openly pursue their ambition to maintain permanent nuclear hegemony by conducting most of the nuclear tests in the world and launching ICBM whenever they please, are adopting illegal and unlawful "sanctions resolutions" to incriminate the DPRK's bolstering of self-defensive nuclear force and enforcing those sanctions over its alleged "violation" of them. This constitutes the height of outrageous double standard.
As long as the U.S. hostile policy and nuclear threat continue, the DPRK, no matter who may say what, will never place its self-defensive nuclear deterrence on the negotiation table or flinch an inch from the road chosen by itself, the road of bolstering up the state nuclear force.
Second, now that the U.S. did forge the "sanctions resolution" by manipulating the UNSC to obliterate the DPRK's sovereignty and rights to existence and development, the DPRK will move into its resolute action ofjustice as it had already clarified.
The U.S. is acting absurd by resorting to the anachronistic sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK, instead of appreciating the strategic status of the DPRK and paying proper attention to its repeated warnings. The unwise conduct of the U.S. will only speed up its own extinction.
As the gangsters of the U.S. remain unabated in their mean and heinous provocation, the DPRK will further increase the strength of justice to thoroughly eradicate the cause of war and aggression and never back away from this fight to a finish.
Third, the DPRK will make the U.S. pay dearly for all the heinous crime it commits against the state and people of this country.
The U.S. once waged a tragic war that plunged this land into a sea of blood and fire, and has been leaving no stone unturned to obliterate the DPRK's ideology and system century after century. The U.S. is sadly mistaken if it considers its mainland a safe haven for being on the other side of the ocean.
Those countries which were offered "thanks" from the U.S. as a reward for taking part in the conspiracy to invent the heinous "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK through their backdoor arrangement this time, too, would never be able to evade the responsibility for increasing the tensions on the Korean peninsula and jeopardizing peace and security of the region.
If the U.S. fails to act with discretion, persisting in its reckless attempts to stifle the DPRK, we will not waver or hesitate to use any form of ultimate means.

The DPRK will hold fast to the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts, the lasting banner of defending peace, and continue to march straight forward to the end of the road chosen by itself without the slightest deviation.

DPRK FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. Reckless Moves


A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on August 3 as regards the fact that the U.S. is escalating its military threat to the DPRK by deploying strategic nuclear assets in the Korean peninsula:
Recently, the U.S. is continuously deploying a huge amount of its latest strategic assets in the Korean peninsula in a bid to resort to military adventure, calling for military response to the DPRK's successful second test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14.
The U.S. carried out a joint missile launching drill together with south Korea targeting the DPRK and dispatched two of its B-1B strategic bombers into the air above the Korean peninsula to conduct aerial bombardment drill for ten hours. It also waged a drill simulating the interception of the DPRK's ballistic missile while finalizing in haste the decision on the deployment of additional THAAD launchers in south Korea.
No sooner had the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Pacific Command chief admiral of the U.S. held a consultation with their south Korean counterparts about the so-called military response than the U.S. openly stated that it will concentrate its latest strategic assets on the vicinity of the Korean peninsula in an explicit manifestation of its intention to carry out an armed attack on the DPRK.
The second test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14 by the DPRK was meant to send a stern warning to the U.S. going reckless and making senseless remarks about threatening the DPRK with military pressure and extreme sanctions.
Unfortunately, the U.S. still thinks that its military bluff would work, and it seems like the U.S. has not yet realized that its opponent is a mighty nuclear power which is capable of smashing the U.S., an aggressor state, into smithereens.
Any form of military threat or blackmail by the U.S. can never scare the DPRK and, on the contrary, it will only redouble the resolve of the Korean army and people to annihilate the enemy.

If the U.S. is stupid enough to shove its stinky face on this land again and keep brandishing its nuclear club despite our repeated warnings, the DPRK will teach the U.S. some manners with the strategic nuclear force that it had so far shown to the world.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Slashes at U.S. Adoption of Independent Sanctions Law


A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by the KCNA on August 3 as regards the fact that the U.S. has rigged up another heinous sanctions law to suffocate the DPRK:
On August 2, U.S. President Trump signed the "Countering America's Adversaries through Sanctions Act" which recently passed the U.S. Congress. Thus, additional sanctions against the DPRK, Russia and Iran were formally adopted as the law.
The U.S. adoption of sanctions law against the DPRK is no more than last-ditch efforts by those who are terrified at the series of measures taken by the DPRK in rapid succession to develop a sophisticated nuclear force.
The act of the U.S. which is so fond of rigging up sanctions law and brandishing the sanctions club against other sovereign states is no better than that of a hooligan which cannot be allowed by international law as well.
The adoption of another unilateral sanctions law against sovereign states by the U.S. is a criminal conduct whereby it tried to apply its federal law to international relations which constitutes a direct challenge to the UN Charter and international law.
That is why the DPRK strongly condemns and rejects the so called unilateral sanctions by the U.S., and all other countries in the world also need to seriously ponder over the outrageous and unlawful act of the U.S.
It is an undeniable realty that the DPRK has manufactured atomic bomb and hydrogen bomb, and even ICBM despite harsh sanctions continuing for more than half a century. It is really pathetic to see the lawmakers of the U.S. still running foolish and impudent failing to grasp the key to the DPRK's success.
The sanctions campaign by the U.S. might work on the other countries, but never with the DPRK.
As the respected Supreme Leader with far-sighted wisdom, outstanding leadership art and incomparable grit and courage stands in the van of our revolution and there are the single-minded unity of the army and people around their leader and the great might of self-development, the DPRK scores only victory one after another.
The sanctions by the U.S. has only worked to redouble the indomitable spirit of our army and people closely rallied around the leader and their unfathomable strength of self-reliance and self-development and increase the DPRK's defence capability.
The recent second test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14 by the DPRK was meant to send a stern warning to the U.S. which is going reckless and frantic, having suffered only crushing defeats in the all-out showdown with the DPRK.
The U.S. trumpeting about war and threat to impose extreme sanctions on the DPRK only increase the latter's vigilance and stamina, and provides further justification for its access to nukes.
The anachronistic daydream of the U.S. politicians of damaging by means of sanctions the overall national power and strategic prestige of the DPRK which have been markedly boosted, is being subject to humiliation within the U.S. as well.
The U.S. sanctions provide further justification for the DPRK's measures to intensify the development of its nuclear force. The countries abiding by this sanctions regime, instead of criticizing it, can't be seen otherwise than the ones fueling the tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. had better deliberate on the ways to ensure its home security rather than wasting its energy on the hopeless sanctions racket against the DPRK.

U.S. Sanctions Racket Being Subject to Condemnation from World: FM Spokesman


The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by the KCNA on August 1 as regards the fact that the U.S. sanctions racket against several countries is provoking an international backlash:
The new "sanctions bill" against the DPRK, Russia and Iran which recently passed the U.S. Congress is prompting a growing international backlash.
Russia stated that it will take serious counteraction against the ferocious and reckless acts of the U.S. while Iran responded by vowing to pass retaliatory bills regarding the passage of the sanctions bill as a blatant act of hostility against Iran.
EU member states including Germany, Austria and France are also taking a tough stand towards the U.S. attempts to sacrifice Europe for the sake of "America First Policy", criticizing the U.S. sanctions on Russia.
Meanwhile, China and Venezuela are also showing strong reaction to the escalating threats of sanctions by the U.S.
China warned that the U.S. "secondary boycott" targeting Chinese entities would bring about a serious clash between the two countries and the Venezuelan president declared that Venezuela would take a resolute countermeasure against any U.S. sanctions on the country.
The U.S. is running the sanctions campaign against several countries with the sole and impudent intention to use it as a means to seek its own interests.
The sanctions by the U.S. which are geared to "saving the U.S. economy" by securing the market for energy and increasing its export are encroaching upon the interests of its allies and friends without hesitation as well as its rivals. It is only natural that the sanctions racket caused by the U.S is being subject to condemnation and rejection from all over the world for its illegality and impudence.
The world should not tolerate the outrageous behavior of the U.S. that threatens sovereign states with sanctions whenever it pleases in pursuance of its exclusive interests. 
The frantic sanctions campaign by the U.S. against the DPRK is also, in essence, serving the "pivot to Asia" strategy of the U.S. and its wild dream of dominating the entire world.
The U.S. threat to impose extreme sanctions on the DPRK only increases the latter's vigilance and stamina, and strengthens the resolve of its people to build a powerful socialist country by dint of self-reliance and self-development.

The U.S. should wake up to reality that the overall state power and strategic position of the DPRK have reached a new high and act with discretion.

JOINT STATEMENT OF NIGERIAN COMMITTEES ON THE STUDY OF KIMILSUNGISM-KIMJONGILISM

The U.S. framed up "sanctions resolution" which is geared to completely block the DPRK's economic development and improvement of the people's livelihood, branding its test-launch of ICBM as "a threat to international peace and security".
The DPRK's access to the nuclear force is a fair and legitimate measure for self-defense to protect the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the high-handed and arbitrary acts of the U.S. which has made it its business to pursue the policy of extreme hostility and pose nuclear threat to the DPRK well over half a century.
We are extending entire support to the statement of the DPRK Government which totally rejects "sanctions resolution" of the UNSC rigged up by the U.S. and other hostile forces as a wanton infringement upon the sovereignty of the country and the determination to move in its resolute action of justice.
We are convinced that the Korean people, firmly rallied behind the Respected Supreme Leader, will achieve the final victory in the showdown with the imperialists and the U.S. without fail.

STATEMENT OF DPRK GOVERNMENT

The Government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Monday issued a statement over the fact that the U.S. and other hostile forces, terrified at the growth of the DPRK's state nuclear force in quality and quantity, are steeped in the most intensive sanctions, pressure and provocations against it.
The statement says:
On August 6, the U.S. framed up "sanctions resolution" 2371 at the United Nations Security Council which is geared to completely block the DPRK's economic development and improvement of the people's livelihood, branding its test-launch of ICBM as "a threat to international peace and security".
This UN "sanctions resolution", to all intents and purposes, is an outcome of diabolical attempts of the U.S. to isolate and stifle the DPRK, which constitutes a flagrant infringement upon its sovereignty and an open challenge to it.
The DPRK's access to the strongest nuclear force is a fair and legitimate measure for self-defense to protect the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the high-handed and arbitrary acts of the U.S. which has made it its business to pursue the policy of extreme hostility and pose nuclear threat to the DPRK well over half a century.
The successive test-launch of ICBM by the DPRK was a stern warning to the U.S. which, being entrenched far across the Pacific, wages reckless and perilous military provocation and despicable campaign of sanctions on the DPRK.
However, the U.S. goes more frenzied and desperate instead of accepting the DPRK's existence and learning to coexist with the latter. It is trying to drive the situation of the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war, running amuck to conduct missile drill against the DPRK and deploying massive strategic equipment to the peninsula.
It was against this backdrop that the U.S. manipulated UNSC to rig up the "sanctions resolution" more heinous than ever, placing a total ban even on normal trade activities and economic exchange, thereby disclosing before the whole world its evil intention to obliterate the ideology and system of the DPRK and exterminate its people.
On the other hand, the U.S. causes such a racket with no time to wipe their mouth, making impudent remarks that it is considering the so-called military option targeting the DPRK.
There are countries to which the ridiculous threats of the U.S. are working and there are countries which lie prostrate at the bluff of the U.S.
The U.S. claiming to be the "only superpower of the world" and the DPRK's neighbors hardly any smaller in size than the U.S. are all so frightened at merely two ICMB test-launches by the DPRK that they are making much a scene baying at each other. Watching them go frantic only redoubles the DPRK's pride in the country's great might and reaffirms its faith that the path it had chosen is the only way to survive and prosper.
The DPRK has already gained everything it needed while having everything wanted in its hands through an arduous struggle under the harshest sanctions regime created by numerous UN "sanctions resolutions" adopted at the instigation of the U.S during the last several decades. It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK would be shaken an inch or change its stance by the sanctions of this new kind imposed upon by the hostile forces.
As the U.S. launched full-scale provocation against the DPRK across all fields of politics, economy and military, nothing can alter the will and resolve of the army and people of the DPRK to respond by taking resolute retaliatory measures.
The DPRK Government solemnly states as follows to cope with the grave situation created by the frantic acts of the U.S. and other hostile forces;
First, the DPRK condemns in the strongest terms and totally rejects the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" of the UNSC rigged up by the U.S. and other hostile forces as a wanton infringement upon the sovereignty of the country.
The DPRK is taking measures to strengthen the self-defensive nuclear deterrence in order to counter the policy of extreme hostility and nuclear threat against it from the U.S., the biggest nuclear weapons state of the world. Terming these measures "a threat to international peace and security" is a gangster like logic indicating that the rest of the world should either become U.S. colonies serving its interests or fall victim to its aggression.
The countries, that openly pursue their ambition to maintain permanent nuclear hegemony by conducting most of the nuclear tests in the world and launching ICBM whenever they please, are adopting illegal and unlawful "sanctions resolutions" to incriminate the DPRK's bolstering of self-defensive nuclear force and enforcing those sanctions over its alleged "violation" of them. This constitutes the height of outrageous double standard.
As long as the U.S. hostile policy and nuclear threat continue, the DPRK, no matter who may say what, will never place its self-defensive nuclear deterrence on the negotiation table or flinch an inch from the road chosen by itself, the road of bolstering up the state nuclear force.
Second, now that the U.S. did forge the "sanctions resolution" by manipulating the UNSC to obliterate the DPRK's sovereignty and rights to existence and development, the DPRK will move into its resolute action of justice as it had already clarified.
The U.S. is acting absurd by resorting to the anachronistic sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK, instead of appreciating the strategic status of the DPRK and paying proper attention to its repeated warnings. The unwise conduct of the U.S. will only speed up its own extinction.
As the gangsters of the U.S. remain unabated in their mean and heinous provocation, the DPRK will further increase the strength of justice to thoroughly eradicate the cause of war and aggression and never back away from this fight to a finish.
Third, the DPRK will make the U.S. pay dearly for all the heinous crime it commits against the state and people of this country.
The U.S. once waged a tragic war that plunged this land into a sea of blood and fire, and has been leaving no stone unturned to obliterate the DPRK's ideology and system century after century. The U.S. is sadly mistaken if it considers its mainland a safe haven for being on the other side of the ocean.
Those countries which were offered "thanks" from the U.S. as a reward for taking part in the conspiracy to invent the heinous "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK through their backdoor arrangement this time, too, would never be able to evade the responsibility for increasing the tensions on the Korean peninsula and jeopardizing peace and security of the region.
If the U.S. fails to act with discretion, persisting in its reckless attempts to stifle the DPRK, we will not waver or hesitate to use any form of ultimate means.

The DPRK will hold fast to the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts, the lasting banner of defending peace, and continue to march straight forward to the end of the road chosen by itself without the slightest deviation.
