Is Russia Sightless or Is It Mimicking Blind: Researcher of Institute for International Studies

Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) -- Ri Chol Ho, a researcher of the Institute for International Studies of the DPRK, on Wednesday issued the following article titled "Is Russia Sightless or Is It Mimicking the Blind":

The news of the successful launch of inter-continental ballistic rockets of the DPRK, which put the whole land of the U.S., empire of evil, within its striking range, has been afloat all over the world as breaking news.

The U.S., an aggression state which brandished a nuclear stick of aggression and oppression decade after decade, has finally been dumbfounded in the face of the Juche weapon, and the whole world now turn its eyes to Songun Korea with admiration.

The international community was unanimous in commenting in high terms that the fact that the DPRK's ICBM reached the maximum height of more than 3 700 km and flew nearly 1 000 km and that the launch was made at high angle launch system more rigorous than actual maximum range flight conditions is demonstrative of the substantial might which is capable of putting even the eastern areas of the U.S. including New York, to say nothing of the western areas of the U.S., within the firing range.

The DPRK's ICBM, a noble fruition of its great policy of simultaneously developing the economic construction and the building of nuclear force, is clearly recorded in space as a pronoun of defence of international justice and peace, both in name and reality.

But only Russia is making a far-fetched assertion, denying this stark fact unanimously acknowledged by the world community, while feigning blind and deaf.

Russia, a country bordering the Korean peninsula, is calling the DPRK's ICBM a medium-range ballistic rocket with 681 km of height and 732 km of distance. This is utterly ironical.

The U.S., situated in the American continent across the ocean, dares not deny the fact even though it is reluctant more than others to acknowledge the DPRK's success in the ICBM launch. A big question is how come the ICBM of the DPRK is taken as medium-range ballistic rocket by Russia, a country very close to the DPRK.

Another question is that Russia, which will be grouchy if it is ranked second in military standings, is making desperate efforts to make its far-fetched assertions sound plausible while misusing even the name of the Defence Ministry.

The world people are watching the erratic act of Russia with surprise as its authorities and the public have differing stand over the launch. Lots of military experts, media and social circles of Russia are unanimously acknowledging the launch as ICBM launch but this is denied only by the authorities.

What is skeptical is that whether Russia's virtual concept on object is not ruled by its perversity and jealousy that big country's rifle should be regarded as a rocket and small country's rocket should be taken as a rifle.

For years, Russia took outwardly strong stand toward the U.S., as it used to say that "sanctions resolutions" against the DPRK should not affect the normal economic and trade activities of the DPRK and its people's living at a time when the issue was on agenda at UN even though Russia was subject to trouble as a key target of sanctions and pressure by the U.S. Therefore, the world has been skeptical about its assertion of calling the ICBM a medium-range ballistic rocket. However, Russia, which had showed bravery as if it was going to hinder the adoption of the "resolution sanctions" on the DPRK, boarded the ship operated by the U.S. all of a sudden to be "complimented" by Trump. This is quite enough for the world to guess what was the true aim sought by Russia in insisting that the ICBM of the DPRK was a medium-range ballistic rocket.

The far-fetched assertion of Russia has become an engine that heartened the DPRK to work for more launches of ICBM and compelled it to take new measures of action.

It will be clear to Russia itself whether it is really the blind or is feigning the blind.

If Russia does not drop its own "big power concept" which it values so much, the reality in which it is not treated as a big power even though it is a big power will be its permanent destiny. -0-

No War!

No War!

On August 4, women organizations including the Women Headquarters of South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration, the Federation of the Korean Women’s Organizations and the National Women’s Solidarity called a news conference in front of the US embassy in Seoul to protest against US President Trump’s preposterous remarks that he would not hesitate to unleash a war in the Korean Peninsula.
They pointed an accusing finger at Trump’s ill-boding remarks that thousands of people would be killed in the Korean Peninsula not in the US mainland if a war breaks out and demanded his apology. 
They charged that Trump’s remarks are that of a demented warmonger.  
The additional deployment of THAAD and military tension to be created on the Korean Peninsula by south Korea-US joint military rehearsals to be conducted in the middle of August would not help for keeping peace, they stressed.    
The US, the biggest nuclear power in the world, is steeped in hostile policy to the DPRK as the former has hurled huge amount of weapons and army into the Korean Peninsula for decades in a bid to put military pressure on and blamed the latter, they noted.  
The women ardently wish the Korean Peninsula free from war provocation of the US and want to live peacefully without constant danger of war, global denuclearization and stop to military exercises in the Korean Peninsula are shortcut to preserve a durable peace, they said.   
They would take active part in the campaign to keep the Korean Peninsula free from danger of war, they pointed out.
The Solidarity for Democracy, People's Life, Peaceful Reunification and Sovereignty held a rally on August 5 to criticize Trump’s absurd remarks.
It demanded withdrawal of hostile policy to the DPRK, conclusion of peace pact between the DPRK and US and halt to deployment of THAAD.

Sanctions will fail to crush Juche Korea (updated and expanded version of the earlier article "Why Sanctions Cannot Defeat People's Korea the land of Juche") special article by Dr Dermot Hudson


 On Saturday 5th of August  the UN Security Council, a stuffed shirt body and tool of US world imperialism , voted for a new sanctions resolution  2371 against People's Korea .Shamefully certain big powers that profess themselves to be anti-imperialist sided with US imperialism and voted for the sanctions in the UNSC. Earlier the US had passed a new sanctions act targetting the DPRK , Russia and Iran .
    The UNSC sanctions are seen as particularly stringent , as the statement of the DPRK government said the UNSC santions amount to  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.". Trump has been boasting that the UNSC sanctions will  cause a loss of $1 billion for the DPRK .
Some people ask , how can People's Korea survive these sanctions ? What will happen ? Well first of all sanctions are not new for the DPRK . In fact the DPRK is one of the most sanctioned countries in the world.
   The US first imposed sanctions on the DPRK in 1950 .The US fabricated about 40 acts against the DPRK since the 1950s such as Act of Export Control (June 28, 1950,) the Act of Trade with Enemy State (December 17, 1950,) the Act of External Aid (August 1,1962)the Wassenaar Arrangement (July 12, 1996) and the Act of International Financial Structure (1994.) By these acts,all economic sectors of the DPRK are under sanctions and she has been prohibited to make trade, financial transactions and the exchange of science and technology. In the past decade the UN Security  Council under the baton of the US imperialists  adopted sanctions against the DPRK under the pretext of the DPRK's nuclear test and the satellite launches imposed sanctions in 2006,2009 ,2012 and 2013. These  sanctions were unable to check either the DPRK's nuclear and space programmes not the massive construction programme which saw multi-storied buildings rise one after in quick succession.
   In fact in the late 1950s when the sanctions and blockade of the US imperialists and other Western countries was most intense and the DPRK faced pressure from the big power chauvinists and revisionists . This did not impede the growth of the DPRK ,instead the Korean people under the leadership of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG launched the Chollima movement(Chollima being the legendary winged horse of Korea that can cover thousands of miles in  a day). Industrial output value soared by 36% per year !
   Two Western academic experts  Brun and Hersh in their book 'Socialist Korea' wrote"when it is considered that one of the most acute problems in industrial
development of nations with a low starting point is created by the competition 
of 'advanced' nations one can grasp the short sightedness of the embargo policy...Thus strange as it may appear the effects of the Western embargo against the Asian socialist countries may have been  far different than those intended".
   During  the early 1960s rather than being the great benefactor of the DPRK that some imagine the Soviet Union suspended economic co-operation with the DPRK basically imposing its own sanctions on the DPRK because the DPRK refused to follow its revisionist policies. President KIM IL SUNG said that   "The revisionists fell on their knees before the threat and blackmail of the US imperialists and capitulated against the interests of the revolution". He further explained that some difficulties in the implementation of the Seven Year Pan had been caused by the revisionists but stressed that "We could not give up our revolutionary principles and toe the line of the revisionists capitulation just for a few more tons of steel".
  Secondly, the sanctions will fail because of the Juche Idea , the policy of self-reliance and self-development and the power of the independent , Juche-based economy of the DPRK. 
   The great leader President KIM IL SUNG stressed that the Juche Idea itself is a weapon to combat imperialist sanctions and blockade saying that ; "The United States, Japan and other modern imperialist states are now blockading our country in the political, economic and military spheres. But the Korean communists have a sufficient amount of vitamins of the Juche type with which to frustrate that blockade. The attempt to conquer the Workers’ Party of Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Korean people by military means or to stifle them politically and economically is a wild daydream, like an attempt to break a rock with an egg-After the evacuation of the guerrilla zones, small units and political workers actively infiltrated into the homeland. The seeds of the revolution were sown in the vast lands of Manchuria and Korea.
This wise teaching perceptively foresaw the desperate attempts of the US imperialists and UNSC to stifle Korean style socialism.


   The DPRK's independent national economy can produce almost any product from a wrist watch to a nuclear missile. In the 1970s the DPRK  was able to produce 98% of its own machinery  and 75% of fuel and industrial materials. Foreign trade is a small percentage of gross national product in the DPRK unlike the south Korean puppet regime which has 88% of its gross national product 
coming from foreign trade and is therefore highly dependent.  Thus a large part of the DPRK's GDP would be unaffected by sanctions.  $ 1 billion only amounts to about 3.5 per cent of the Western estimate of GDP for the DPRK but as the real GDP of the DPRK is in fact higher it is a much lower figure.
    The DPRK's Juche-based independent national economy is strong .You cannot see  foreign owned banks towering above the streets of Pyongyang. The DPRK economy is owned and run ,basically, by the Korean people.
As to talk of restricting joint ventures , the DPRK survived and prospered without joint-ventures for many years , they can and will do again .
   A typical example of the DPRK's Juche-based self-reli
ant independent national economy is Vinalon ,a synthetic fibre produced from limestone which means that the DPRK does not need to import cotton .The DPRK perfected a Juche-based method of iron and steel production without  coking coal .In recent years  the DPRK has succeeded in making a tube train with indigenous resources and technology  as well as a light aeroplane and of course the satellite Kwangmyongsong 4 was launched using resources and materials of the DPRK. 
   Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has strongly emphasised the self-development first principle saying "Worship of big countries and dependence on foreign forces is the road to national ruin; self-development alone is the road to sustaining the dignity of our country and our nation and to paving a broad avenue for the revolution and construction”.


         Although the UNSC , US , Japanese , EU and south Korean sanctions may cause some short term and temporary problems , the DPRK will fight back  with the spirit of self-reliance, upholding  the Juche idea and upholding the self-development first principle. The DPRK does not need foreign banks etc, it needs Juche, it needs self-reliance , it needs self-development . There will be greater import substitution which will strengthen the national economy greatly and led to further spectacular development. The Korean people will end the disease of import dependency totally by upholding respected Marshal KIM JONG UN's  great teachings on self-development. The Korean people will smash the imperialist sanctions with Juche ,self-reliance and self-development and will build a stronger , more prosperous socialist country !

ASSPUK,JISGE, UK KFA and BSCPRKP support warning of KPA Strategic Force


  9th of August  Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA )  , and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP)issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) that was issued on the 8th of August :
  The Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA draw correct attention to the ill boding and provocative actions of the US imperialists . Recently the US has test fired the ICBM Minuteman-3 at its Vandenberg Air Force Base in California State targeting the DPRK, the fourth one this year, openly staged an actual nuclear strike drill targeting the strategic objects of the DPRK by mobilizing its nuclear strategic bombers formation stationed at its Anderson Air Force Base on Guam in the Pacific. It is driving the situation on the Korean peninsual to an extreme pitch by openly bringing various kinds of nuclear strategic hardware .

 Given the grave situation the KPA Strategic Force issued a warning to the US that if it does not desist  from it aggresive moves then it will strike at US military bases on Guam , a Pacific island that the US imperialists have turned into a colony and a military base . Pre-emptive action is not the sole monopoly of the US !
    We support the right of People's Korea to self-defence . If the US really wants peace it should desist from threatening and provoking People's Korea !

KCNA Commentary on S. Korean Authorities' "Story of Crisis in August"

Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces are kicking off the anti-DPRK burlesque while spreading a "story of crisis in August".
They spread rumor that the DPRK's test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-14 passed the "red line," increasing the U.S. possibility of military attack, and the DPRK would make another tougher military step on the occasion of the joint military drill Ulji Freedom Guardian scheduled for late August.
This is a revelation of the sinister intention to lay the blame for the tension of the Korean peninsula on the DPRK, curry favor with their master U.S. and hype their reckless military confrontation racket.
It is only the south Korean authorities who are working hard to deny the fact that the U.S. is the criminal persistently increasing the danger of nuclear war on the peninsula.
The U.S. is a state of aggression and war which has posed a serious threat to the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the region while pursuing the extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear blackmail for more than a half century.
The U.S. huge nuclear strategic assets are watching for a chance to ignite a war of aggression while busying themselves on the peninsula and the region.
It is the essential strategic option for the DPRK to take the road of bolstering up the nuclear force in order to defend the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the U.S. reckless obstructive moves.
The DPRK has provided a reliable guarantee for firmly preserving the peace and security of the peninsula and the region. Its successive ICBM test-fires were a stern warning to the U.S. which is slapping the harshest sanctions while letting out rhetoric out of discretion.
Now is the time for the south Korean authorities to behave with greater prudence and self-control than ever before, not going busy with currying favor with their master U.S. as the DPRK clearly showed the world that it has capability of making surprise launch of ICBM any time and any place and the entire U.S. mainland is in the firing range of the DPRK.
This being a hard reality, they are zealously availing themselves of the U.S. military counteractions, hit hard by the DPRK's test-fire of ICBM targeted against the U.S.
Their anti-DPRK moves, staged to the tune of lunatic Trump's rhetoric that he would not rule out a war, are aggravating the tension on the peninsula.
If the south Korean authorities persistently take the road of following the U.S., the "story of crisis in August" will come to reality, putting their existence at peril.
They should behave with discretion if they want to escape a catastrophic disaster. -0-

DPRK Will Never Step Back from Road of Justice: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and other hostile forces, taken aback by the powerful might of the DPRK's nuclear force, challenged it through the harshest sanctions and pressure and provocative moves.
On August 6, the U.S. framed up "sanctions resolution" 2371 by abusing the name of the UNSC, branding the DPRK's ICBM test-launch as a "threat to global peace and security." Meanwhile, it is running amuck, uttering imprudent remarks for military option against the DPRK.
This is a wanton violation of the sovereignty of the DPRK and another provocation to it as it is a product of the U.S. heinous hostile policy toward the DPRK to stifle the ideology, social system and people in the DPRK.
The U.S. is the sworn enemy of the Korean nation as it has incurred the bitter grudge upon the nation hard to be settled through centuries.
From long ago, the U.S. regarded invasion of Korea, gate to the Asian continent, as the important key for implementing the strategy for world domination. It artificially divided Korea, which is neither a war criminal nor the defeated in the Second World War, and unhesitatingly committed the most monstrous crimes unprecedented in history.
The U.S., from its gangster-like nature not to allow the existence of the DPRK, has cooked up a lot of illegal anti-DPRK "sanctions resolutions" and increased them while resorting to the nuclear threats and blackmail to it.
It is the instinct of human being to protect himself or herself from the attack of brutes and it is a righteous step to defend the safety of each nation and security of its country from the aggression of outsiders.
The DPRK took the option of having access to the strongest nuclear force to defend its sovereignty and the right to existence of the nation from the highhanded and arbitrary practices of the U.S.
By taking the option the DPRK declared an end to the gangster-like logic and Yankee-style way of existence that all the countries on the earth should be colonies serving the U.S. interests or fall victim to the U.S.
Now standing before the "only superpower in the world" are the heroic people of Juche Korea, who created the legendary war victory by shattering the myth of "mightiness" of the U.S. imperialists with rifles 60 odd years ago. Today they have the most powerful strategic weapons, Juche weapons with the U.S. mainland in their striking range.
It is a foolish calculation for the U.S. to think that its mainland would be safe across the ocean.
The more "sanctions resolutions" aimed at depriving the DPRK of its sovereignty and rights to existence and development would only stir up the hatred of the Korean army and people toward the gangster-like U.S. and harden their will to retaliate against it thousand times.
The way out for the DPRK is to bolster up the state nuclear force, and the DPRK will never step back even an inch from the road of justice chosen by itself, no matter what others may say. -0-
