U.S. Strategy for Aggression under Fire

Pyongyang, January 31 (KCNA) -- The United States worked out a strategy for aggression using Network as a new means of a war and is giving spurs to its implementation.
The U.S. recently spelled out "a network operation strategy".
The above-said strategy calls for introducing preemptive attack in the network operation and describes the preemptive strike within network as "preemptive strike going beyond boundaries."
In a word, this strategy is aimed at preempting attack on other countries in the field of network in a bid to destroy military intelligence-gathering facilities, etc. and thus maintain a strategic edge and attain its aggressive purpose.
Pursuant to this strategy, the U.S. seeks to have under its control both network "shield" and "spear" in an effort to defuse the threat from potential enemies and ensure an unchallenged edge.
The U.S. installed computer virus at the majority of its military bases as a weapon and seeks to build a network "shield" linked with NATO allies.
In the past the U.S. got nervous about the defense of network in the main but it is now channeling its efforts into network attack forces according to the doctrine of preemptive attack.
To this end, the U.S. established a network headquarters for network attack operations and put it under a strategic headquarters in a military base in the suburbs of Washington.
It is said that the U.S. keeps more than 30 000-strong network forces at present.
It is stepping up the development of new type network operation weapons with an investment of a stupendous amount of fund. It also produced software aimed to spread pro-U.S. information and create confusion among "hostile states" in listening to media.
It plans to create a unit for network operations at reserve forces.
The U.S. persistently hatches plots to disarm other countries in the field of network.
One of them is "freedom" in internet and it is doggedly forcing other countries to apply it.
All facts go to prove that the U.S. is a disturber of world peace and stability as it uses even IT for carrying out its strategy for aggression though it should be used for the prosperity and development common to mankind. -0

KCNA Commentary: 'U.S. Pacific Century' and Korean Peninsula

Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. recently made public a new defense strategy the keynote of which is to maintain its "position as a world leader".
Timed to coincide with this, the U.S. military warlike forces made the story about "provocation and threat" from the DPRK an established fact, talking about "worst scenario" and "uncertainty".
What does this mean?
The Asia-Pacific region is now becoming a center of world forces.
The U.S. is keen to make the 21st century a "U.S. Pacific century" in a bid to emerge an emperor of the world.
The "U.S. Pacific century" is, in essence, a new version of the U.S. foreign policy to monopolize the political and economic interests in Asia-Pacific region.
In a word, the U.S. announcement of its new defense strategy is aimed at formally spelling out a war strategy of putting importance to Asia-Pacific and directing its spearhead to the DPRK and China.
Its goal is to intensify the military infiltration and interference in the region by sparking a crisis and escalating the tension on the Korean Peninsula. Its ultimate purpose is to pressurize China, its biggest strategic rival, by force of arms and control Asia-Pacific and keep world supremacy.
It is part of the U.S. scenario that it is providing military support and encouragement to south Korea, Japan and other allies, while overstating "threat" from the DPRK.
The dangerous and reactionary nature of the U.S. new defense strategy lies in its moves to deter other powers from exercising their influence over the region and enlarging their beat by force and build an order of U.S.-led imperialist domination.
The U.S. unlimited imperialist greed and military adventures are posing a grave menace to peace and stability in the region and increasing the danger of a new Cold War there.
The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks it can make the 21st century a U.S.-led 'Pacific century" from an outdated hegemonic viewpoint.
The U.S. would be well advised not to forget the historical fact that it drank a bitter cup of defeat in Korea last century. -0-

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Foiling Imperialists′ Ideological and Cultural Poisoning

Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- The world progressive people are required to wage a positive struggle to decisively foil the imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning by seeing through its vicious nature, danger and grave consequences. Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a bylined article.
Bourgeois ideology, culture and the decadent way of life are the most reactionary and unpopular ones as they represent and protect the interests of the capitalist class and reflect their class stand and way of life. This amounts to very dangerous ideological virus making the people mentally crippled and morally degenerated, the article notes, and goes on:
When people are taken in by bourgeois ideology and culture, they will be reduced to ungrateful snobs bereft of faith who neither know the party and leader nor their country and people. Consequently, the power, army and people will be torn apart.
Bourgeois ideological and cultural poisoning has a very harmful impact on the young people, in particular.
It is by no means fortuitous that the imperialists spend the bulk of their state budget to this project and mobilize a lot of manpower for it, openly blustering they can bring down through bourgeois ideological and cultural poisoning the countries which they fail to do even with nukes.
The historical experience proves that if people fail to strictly guard against the poisoning by all hues of unsound ideas and culture spread by the imperialists and wage a fierce struggle against it, they can never check it, concludes the article. -0-

UK KFA refutes the smears and slanders of the "Independent"

On January 22nd the "Independent " newspaper carried an article "His dear leader: Meet North Korea's secret weapon - an IT consultant from Spain" about the Korean Friendship Association , Alejandro Cao De Benos the KFA president and the international KFA meeting hosted by UK KFA. The article is full of smears, lies and inaccuracies. The writer of the article had promised to let KFA see a draft of the article but this never happened.
The DPRK itself is subjected to all the old tired burnt out discredited propaganda cliches , "totalitarian"(what does that mean when its at home ?) "paranoid" "isolated" The Independent journalist needs to know that far from being isolated the DPRK has diplomatic relations with more than a 100 countries and good relations with neighbouring countries such as Russia and China which the late great leader comrade Kim Jong Il visited last year. As to paranoia the DPRK needs to be ever vigilant against provocations from the US which keeps 30,000 troops and 1000 nuclear weapons and also the south Korean puppets plus Japan which is remiltarising itself and has designs on the Korean peninsula. The old porky about 'famine' is also repeated, even though numerous eye-witness know this is not true and that members of KFA and the JISGE and ASSPUK who have been to the DPRK and seen the reality of the DPRK can testify to the falsity of this (see the book "Behind the Mirror of Lies-The Truth About the Democratic People's Republic of Korea ).
The writer of the article seems to not know his way around London as he described the meeting as being held in 'Camden,north London ' when in fact it was held in central London. The article claims that only 20 people attended the meeting but in fact there were more than that. The proceedings of the meeting distorted by just quoting part of Alejandro's speech . n fact there were many questions and wide-ranging discussions on numerous subjects such as housing in the DPRK, the evironment, foreign trade, the nuclear issue, religion and spirituality .
The "Independent " also falsely claimed "Though many in the audience wore militaristic attire", actually no one in the audience was in militaristic clothes. Only 2 people wore 'Kim Il Sung suits' which are civilian clothing in the DPRK .
The writer also tried to equate KFA with " – medieval role players, American Civil War re-enacters, Japanese anime obsessives – the KFA's members seem not completely at home in their own world, seeking instead a deeper affinity with a distant, idealised time or place". In fact KFA members are drawn with all walks of life and have jobs and families . Our membership includes councillors, charity workers, teachers etc.
Un-named sources are used to make claims about KFA trips to the DPRK . This reminded one of much of the reporting on the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe during the cold war which used to repeat wild allegations from un-named "diplomatic sources" , of course this really meant spies .
The worst venom in the article in reserved for Alejandro himself . Much of this is not worthy of discussion and has been said before. It included rather pathetic attempts at amateur psychology . Such things did not hold water in either criminal and civil law.
The "Independent " has shown itself not be independent , it is just like the rest of the imperialist media and represents corporate interests, independent of what exactly ? Independent of good journalism and accuracy !
UK KFA will fight on to tell the truth about the DPRK and will ignore the
lying media.

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Heightening Vigilance against Imperialists′ Deceptive Artifice

Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- The imperialists pretend to be "peace champions," becoming more talkative about "peace" and stability" than ever before. But this is nothing but a crafty and sinister artifice to benumb the vigilance of the world people and cover up their aggressive and predatory aims.
Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this in a bylined article.
The prevailing situation requires the world people not to be taken in by the imperialists' crafty deceptive ruse, the article notes, and goes on:
It is necessary, first of all, to be vigilant against the imperialists talking about "freedom" and "democracy" while pretending not to seek any aggressive aim.
The "freedom" and "democracy" touted by the U.S. are part of its moves for "globalization" and its immediate goal is to do harm to and bring down the political system in the anti-U.S. independent countries and nations by sending them the wind of freedom.
It is also necessary to guard against the imperialists' behavior of styling themselves as "mediators" and "guarantors" in settling disputes.
It is the trite method of the imperialists to fish in troubled waters by sowing the seeds of discord and antagonism among other countries and nations and stoke them.
It is particularly important to be vigilant against the imperialists' trumpeting about "peace."
They still keep military bases and troops for aggression in different countries and regions and stage ceaseless and reckless war maneuvers, while giving lip-service to "peace."
It is the scenario of the U.S. imperialists to carry out their strategy for world domination by force of arms. Its main thrust is to bring Northeast Asia under their control and its core is to ignite another Korean war with south Korea as a base.
One should not harbor any illusion about the imperialists. It is essential to unite close with a firm revolutionary stand against them and intensify the struggle against them. What is more important is to firmly maintain the principle of independence against imperialism and direct the spearhead of attack to it, not regarding its crafty deceptive ruse as a change in its intrinsic nature.

January 27th was the 9th anniversary of the publication of the immortal work on Songun by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il THE SONGUN-BASED REVOLUTIONARY LINE IS A GREAT REVOLUTIONARY LINE OF OUR ERA AND AN EVER-VICTORIOUS BANNER OF OUR REVOLUTION


DPRK was ahead of SK in the 1960s.

In 1964 per capita production of the following products in the DPRK was much greater than south Korea
-coal 3.5 times
-cement 5 times
-fertiliser 36 times
-steel 20 times
- electricity 11 times

In 1970 some Western economic experts estimated the DPRKs gnp or gdp as being 3 times that of
south Korea.

Today the DPRK outproduces south Korea in coal production and is ahead of the UK in that field

Formation of Anti-U.S. Joint Front is General Trend

Pyongyang, January 25 (KCNA) -- The movement to form an anti-U.S. joint front is active in the international arena this year in an effort to cope with the U.S. moves to dominate the world. This trend is drawing the world attention.
A typical example is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's five-day visits to four Latin American countries from Jan. 8
The U.S. employed every possible means and ways to bar his visits by putting pressure on those countries that agreed to host the Iranian president.
Governments of Iran and Latin American countries resolutely rejected the pressure and warnings of the U.S. and put their plans into practice, demonstrating their will to fight it out against the U.S.
Welcoming the Iranian president's visits to their countries, the Latin American countries clarified their stand to conduct dynamic joint struggle against the U.S. by rejecting the U.S. brigandish demand and boosting solidarity and cooperation with Iran.
When the U.S. threatened to slap sanctions against Iran over its oil export while taking issue with its nuclear development for peaceful purposes, the Iranian government strongly reacted to it, threatening that it would close the Strait of Hormuz.
Upset by this, the U.S. is crying out for military option in case of the closure.
The world is of the view that the recent visits provided a good opportunity for Iran and the Latin American countries to reaffirm their common stand against the U.S. and pool their efforts to foil the U.S. moves to isolate and control them.
The formation of the anti-U.S. joint front is the general world trend at present. -0-

DPRK Juche socialist advance v capitalist crisis

In the DPRK in the first part of this year industrial output value has increased by 20% compared to last year. Many big construction projects are going ahead in the DPRK. Contrast this to the situation in the capitalist countries. The much trumpeted south Korean economy (in reality a dependent neo-colonial economy) grew by only 0.4 % in the last quarter of 2011,this means by a rough comparsion the DPRK is now growing 8 times faster than south Korea. In the 1960s it was grudgingly acknowledged by some in the imperialist world that the DPRK was ahead of south Korea in the economy and in fact in many fields the DPRK's production was many times that of south Korea.
In the UK GDP has actually fallen by 0.2 % and total government debt has now hit over a trillion £.
Thus the Juche-based independent national economy based on unified planning is advancing rapidly outpacing the capitalist economies.

20-Day Industrial Output Value Shows 1.2 Times Increase in DPRK

Pyongyang, January 25 (KCNA) -- The gross industrial output value grew 1.2 times for twenty days of January this year as against the same period last year.
This is the result of the high-pitched drive waged by all the workers of the country since the first day of this year after receiving with excitement the joint calls of the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea, the joint New Year editorial for this year and the letter of the working people in South Hamgyong Province.
In the period, the Ministry of Light Industry increased the production 1.4 times and the Ministry of Food and Daily Necessities sharply boosted the production.
Thermal and hydropower stations have increased the ratio of operating the generating equipment.
Much effort is being concentrated on supplying coal to the thermal power plants and chemical and metal plants and developing more coal beds.
The Ministry of Coal Industry produced 12 000 more tons of coal than planned for the 20 days.
Iron mills and steelworks also increased the production.
The freight transport volume increased by 12 percent from the same period last year.
Innovations were made in the production of vinalon and fertilizer by the industrial establishments in the field of chemical industry and in the production of custom built equipment and mining machines by the industrial enterprises of the field of machine industry.
The forestry stations and pit wood stations increased the timber production.
Progress has been reported on a daily basis from the important projects including the building of apartments in Mansudae areas and the Paektusan Songun Youth Power Station.

GIs in south Korea Branded as Drug Peddler

Pyongyang, January 24 (KCNA) -- It has been recently disclosed that a GI smuggled a large amount of drug into south Korea.
This person serving at a U.S. army unit in Songnam city, Kyonggi Province, secretly introduced a large amount of drug by means of international mail.
Detected in his lodging was material believed to be identical to drug.
The fact goes to more clearly prove that GIs are the root cause of drug-related crimes recently rampant in south Korea.
For instance, more than 10 drug-related cases were reported from among GIs present in south Korea from January to August 1999.
Later, an officer of the U.S. imperialist 7th Air Force was unearthed while smuggling a large amount of cocaine and family members of GIs were hell-bent on drug smuggling.
The drug smuggled by GIs has given a great damage to south Koreans.
The 1960s witnessed tragedies in which a large number of south Korean women were missing or died of illness after being addicted to drugs.
Even GIs used the drug to satisfy their desires for murder. In March 1970 a drug-addicted GI cut off the heads of Kim Hwa Nam and his wife in Dongduchon, Kyonggi Province and another GI mangled a woman to death by a scissor in Taegu in December 1987. These were small part of the hideous crimes committed by GIs.
The U.S. imperialist aggression forces are root cause of all misfortunes and pains of south Koreans and a den of crimes. -0-

Lee Myung Bak Termed Chieftain of Massacre of Ryongsan Evacuees Three Yrs Ago

Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- The south Korean Preparatory Committee for Memorial Service for the Ryongsan Tragedy condemned the puppet group of traitors for the massacre of Ryongsan evacuees. The Committee consists of more than 100 civic and public organizations.
They held a rally in the plaza of the Seoul Station on Jan. 19.
The speakers said though three years have passed since the tragedy, probe into the killing has not been made and the evacuees who fought for their rights to existence are still kept behind bars.
The present "government" forcibly evacuated residents without any measure, pursuant to its reckless devolopment policy, speakers charged, deploring it will bring the second and third Ryongsan Tragedy.
They strongly demanded the immediate release of the unjustly detained evacuees and the enactment of the "law on banning forcible evacuation" to prevent the Ryongsan tragedy from repeating itself.
Paek Ki Wan, chief of the Institute for Unification Studies, made a memorial address.
It is Lee Myung Bak who masterminded the massacre of Ryongsan evacuees, Paek said.
He called on people from different social strata to turn the memorial movement into a campaign for putting Lee Myung Bak behind bars this year. -

It Is Good Fortune of Korean People to Have Kim Jong Un as Their Supreme Leader: Chinese Internet Website

Pyongyang, January 3 (KCNA) -- An article titled "We Wish the Korean People All the Best" was posted on Chinese Internet website Xinlang on Dec. 28 last year.

Since the very day leader Kim Jong Il demised, the dear respected Kim Jong Un has looked after the nation's all affairs in a uniform manner and all work has been carried out without hitch under his leadership, the article said, and went on:

What does this mean.

Firstly, senior officials of the party, state and army of the DPRK and all the people had already held Kim Jong Un in high esteem as their leader.

Secondly, it tells that by having Kim Jong Un as the supreme leader of the party and state of the DPRK it will continue to advance along the road of socialism explored by the revolutionaries of the elder generation, not along the road of revisionism and capitalism, and the Korean people can continue to enjoy benefits from the state such as free education, free medical care and free provision of dwelling houses.

Thirdly, the DPRK is fully capable of preventing and checking the distortion or revision of the revolutionary line provided by the revolutionaries of the elder generation and the establishment of the capitalist private ownership.

Recalling that some people are distorting and speaking ill of the reality of the DPRK, dancing to other's tune, the article continued:

The DPRK, though not a big country, has achieved steady development despite the difficult situation created by the protracted moves of the U.S. imperialists and their stooges.

It launched satellites by its own efforts and conducted nuclear tests, striking terror into the hearts of the imperialists.

The people who have been under the great leaders generation after generation deserve reverence, respect and envy from mankind.

We wish the Korean people all the best. -0

No Force Can Ever Block DPRK′s Advance: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, January 21 (KCNA) -- No force can ever bar the DPRK from advancing along the road of socialism no matter how rapidly the international situation may change and no matter how desperately the imperialists may work.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday says this in a bylined article.
The socialist system in the DPRK remains undeterred and stands firm though its army and people lost the father of the nation again so suddenly and early, the article notes, and goes on:
It is the reality of the DPRK where collectivism is displayed at the highest level because the leader regards the people as Heaven, the party sincerely serves the people and they do everything according to the leader's will and intention, firmly armed with his idea.
Deeply enshrined in the hearts of the service personnel and people of the DPRK is the faith that their leader, party and system are the best.
The DPRK grew stronger, not waned, and became richer, not poorer in the unprecedentedly difficult days. Its prosperity is not something in the future but is becoming a reality.
Foolish and pitiable, indeed, are the hostile forces waiting for something to happen in the DPRK, still failing to understand everything there.
The army and people of the DPRK are not the same with weak and faithless army and people who abandon their boat at a loss in a rough sea under the influence of the tumultuous international politics before getting on a rescue ship of the imperialists to kick up a row and create complexity. No force on earth can block their advance as they are aware of the justice of their cause and inevitability of its triumph.
History goes to prove that the advance of the DPRK for socialism is so dynamic that nothing can block it. -0-

KCNA Blasts Smear Campaign of S. Korean Puppet Group

Pyongyang, January 21 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet group is running the whole gamut of artifices to hurt the DPRK grieving the great loss to the nation.
Yesterday Daily NK being operated by human scum released misinformation cooked up in a back room of Chongwadae and KBS echoed it.
Today CBS and other media released false reports about the DPRK, talking about "discovery of leaflets".
Even authorities joined this smear campaign, trumpeting about the DPRK's "unstable system" everyday.
This campaign is peppered with lies and deception.
The puppet group's despicable attitude stunned not only media at home but the world, touching off derision and criticism.
Many media at home and abroad including Huan Qiu Shibao of China and Hangyore of south Korea accused mass media in Seoul of intensifying the smear campaign against the DPRK, noisily trumpeting about various pieces of misinformation through their local news coverage teams. They cited facts to prove it.
Lurking behind the anti-DPRK smear campaign stepped up by the group on the basis of lies about what happened after the big loss though it turned out to be hypocrisy overnight is a sinister aim which should not be overlooked.
It is the intention of the group of traitors to incite the hostile forces' aggression and interference in the DPRK and gratify its ambition for "regime change" at any cost by creating impression that the DPRK is instable and complicated within.
The group judges that doing so is favorable for it to divert elsewhere the public opinion on rapidly changed situation in south Korea, caused by the status of the ruling "Grand National Party" on the point of collapse, etc. and prolong its remaining days by tiding over the crisis.
The ongoing smear campaign was prompted by the group's consciousness of the crisis created inside and outside and its impatience from the failure in its "policy toward the north."
However, such petty trick of traitor Lee Myung Bak has short wings in the bright world.
The Lee group will be bound to face stern punishment by history for its unpardonable treacherous and unpopular rule and evil doings.
The more desperately they may try, the earlier their fate will be precipitated. -

South Korean ultra right wing media blasted

S. Korean Conservative Media Ill-famed for Misinformation
Pyongyang, January 21 (KCNA) -- Conservative media of south Korea have come under criticism and derision by the public at home and abroad for their intensified slanders against the DPRK after it suffered the great loss to the nation.
Chinese paper Huan Qiu Shibao on Friday carried an article by its correspondent in south Korea, which said:
Media of south Korea are making much ado about various sorts of misinformation. Among them is a gossip that China will help build a nuclear power plant for the DPRK.
Choongang Ilbo on Thursday reported two pieces of news aimed at China. One is that China is making preparations to build a nuclear power plant in the Rason Economic Trade Zone of the DPRK. The other is that China may offer an aid of food amounting to hundreds of thousands of tons to keep stability in the DPRK.
Yonhap News on Thursday continued to slander the DPRK. It reported that the DPRK is now suffering from "shortage of power and drinking water" and the price of goods is "skyrocketing" there. -0-
S. Korea′s Conservative Media Flailed for Anti-DPRK Campaign
Pyongyang. January 21 (KCNA) -- Some media organs of south Korea are now dancing to the tune of the Lee Myung Bak regime's anti-DPRK rhetoric. As regards the fact, KCNA had an interview with an officer of the Korean People's Army (KPA), Jang Il Guk, and Ri Pok Sun, a department director of the C.C., the Journalists Union of Korea.
Question: The ultra-rightist conservative media of south Korea, including KBS, Tong-A Ilbo and Chosun Ilbo, are misrepresenting the situation of the DPRK and even slandering its supreme leadership. How do you think about this?
Jang Il Guk: KBS is misleading public opinion in favor of the south Korean regime, but nobody will be deceived by its misinformation.
Our servicepersons, with defending the headquarters of the revolution as their main mission, are determined to smash KBS taking the lead in the anti-DPRK campaign.
Anyone who dares slander the supreme leadership of the DPRK will be a target of our revolutionary forces, wherever they are.
If their ceaseless provocations lead to a war, what the DPRK will achieve is national reunification and what it will lose is the Military Demarcation Line dividing the country into two parts.
Ri Pok Sun: Objectivity and impartiality are vital to media activities. But the conservative media of south Korea only fawn on the power.
It is shameful for them to ignore their mission and duty and serve the group of traitors denounced by the people.
The media of the Korean nation are obliged to conduct patriotic activities encouraging all the Koreans to make efforts for the country's independent reunification.
Doing treacherous acts, daunted by pressure, will lead to self-destruction.
The conservative media of south Korea deserve nationwide condemnation for their hack activities going against the trend of the times and the aspiration of the nation and fanning confrontation between the fellow countrymen. -0-

Unchanged Ambition for Invading the North

Unchanged Ambition for Invading the North
The south Korean war maniacs are going frenzied in military confrontation against the north from the outset of the year in defiance of the unanimous desire of the people at home and abroad for lasting peace of the Korean Peninsula.
Traitor Lee Myung-bak unhesitatingly let loose such violent words as “strong counteraction to provocation” jabbering about “steel-like security posture” in a “special address for the New Year state policy”. In the wake of it, the puppet defense minister, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other military brass hats are blatantly saying of the nonexistent “north’s provocation” and rattling off belligerent remarks such as “resolute chastisement” and the like day after day.
The puppets are going to sign the so-called “plan for joint counteraction against the local provocation” with the US later this month.
Meantime, the war maniacs have already completed the deployment of ground to air guided missiles and are training to master them, and attempting to introduce from the US laser locators of ground targets to guide fighter planes’ super-precision bombing.
On January 9 the 19th logistics command of the US army introduced some 60 new-type “M1-A2 Abrams” tanks to south Korea.
This is an extremely dangerous move to drive the peninsula’s situation closer to a brink of war under the signboard of “coping with provocation”.
The puppet warmongers decided to additionally deploy various kinds of surveillance and precision strike means around the 5 islets in the West Sea under the pretext of “promoting the defense capability of the West Sea islets”, and to further intensify the “troop education” for the soldiers with the aim of “establishing security viewpoint” in them under the cloak of “liquidating pro-north force”.
All facts go to prove that the south Korean warmongers are still harboring ingrained hostility and war hysteria against the fellow countrymen and whetting the swords to invade the north with blood-shot eyes.
It is a foolish act for the Lee Myung-bak group of traitors driven into a crisis of destruction owing to its treacherous policy to find the solution in the war provocation against the north.
Those fond of playing with fire are destined to perish therein

Stinking “Grand National Party”

Stinking “Grand National Party”
The Grand National Party (GNP) cursed by the people for its traitorous politics is further driven into a tight corner due to the crimes and irregularities being exposed one after another.
Its lawmaker Ko Sung-deuk divulged that during the GNP national convention in 2008 he got an envelop with 3 million wons of cash and a candidate’s name card from those of a candidate for party’s representative (Park Hui-tae, incumbent parliament speaker from the GNP).
Transactions of votes by money even in party elections are tantamount to a crime that impairs the foundation of democracy.
The GNP is already on the verge of death due to the recently exposed money envelop case after the people's mindset rebuffed it for its internal strife, various crimes and irregularities.
Moreover, people's protest against the GNP which is trying to cover up the largest-ever crime of its gentries’ hacking on the homepage of the Central Election Management Committee during the local elections last year, in conspiracy with the police and prosecution, is growing further.
All political circles in south Korea are now denouncing the GNP as regards the recent money envelop case.
The parliamentary representative of the Democratic United Party asserted that the GNP should apologize before the people for the recent money envelop case, criticizing it as a totally rotten party through the corruption and irregularities of the president’s men, the DDos attack on the homepage of the Central Election Management Committee, the money envelop case, etc.
The United Progressive Party noted in its commentary that the ruling party of which representative is decided by money lacks the need of the existence and demanded its immediate disbandment, not the reform.
KBS and MBS broadcasts and leading dailies branded the GNP as a den of money politics and denounced the GNP saying that the GNP which kicked up a row under the signboard of reform for restoring its downed support rate, faces further plight for the recent money envelop case and it should wait the people's stern judgment. Stinking garbage should be removed in time.
The day when the rotten GNP is buried by the people's severe punishment is at hand.

Incarnation of Human Love

Incarnation of Human Love

Last December when human beings and all natural creatures were writhing in grief and the whole of Korea was seized with the grievous wailings of the people over the loss of the nation’s father so unexpectedly and so untimely and the veritable sea of tears flowed, a legend of respected Kim Jong Un’s loving care for the people unfolded another sea of emotional tears.

Leader Kim Jong Il who always took care of the Pyongyang citizens’ diet instructed to purvey fresh herring and frozen pollack to them on December 16, just a day before his demise and signed a relevant document. But no one knew that the document became the last one the leader signed in his lifetime.

Respected Kim Jong Un who inherited the temperament of leader’s love for the people, though suffered the heart-stricken pains more than others, instructed on December 18 to purvey herring and pollack to the Pyongyangites whom the leader so much loved to the end of his life.

Pyongyangites who received the fish associated with the love of the leader and respectedKim Jong Un all at once during the mourning days wept over and over with the soaring emotions.

Respected Kim Jong Un saw to it that all restaurants provide the stuffing for rice and red-bean porridge to serve it to the people on the winter solstice (December 22), stressing that doing so is the lifetime intention of the great leader.

Respected Kim Jong Un’s loving care is not limited to that.

After noticing the touching fact that some people who stood guard at the outdoor mourning centers in a bitter cold without meals, caps and gloves, suffered frostbite and fell into a swoon, respected Kim Jong Un sent on December 22 his autographed emergency order to party organizations to secure the people's conveniences on an absolute and highest priority basis during the mourning period.

He gave warm instructions to ensure the thorough measures of treatment and hot water-supply for those standing guard outside, and for the leading officials to mix themselves with the people to console them and share the sorrow to overcome the difficult stage.

Accordingly, facilities for warming the mourners were set up near the mourning stations, large buses with heated inside stood standby, service stands supplied the mourners with milk, hot water, bean water and tea free of charge, those standing guard were provided with fur caps and gloves, hot stones and heating bands, and medial workers applied ointments against frostbite and put the earplugs for them.

Here is a moving story.

When watching a game of the players of the KPA Sports Team in May of last year leaderKim Jong Il carefully saw a woman coach of handball and said she looked sick.

He was told by an official that she contracted an incurable disease and she was striving in the training site day and night saying she would not leave the handball court till her last gasp. He appreciated her as a good comrade and earnestly said to cure her disease.

Respected Kim Jong Un, on December 22, though busy leading the whole country wrapped in condolence fever, got familiar with the state of her treatment and bestowed a great benevolence to send her to a famous foreign hospital without delay.

The touching stories during the national mourning period are a miniature of the warm love for the people of Comrade Kim Jong Un identical to leader Kim Jong Il.

There has never been such a benevolent father and people's great leader as Comrade Kim Jong Un who suffered the biggest grief but fathomed the grieving people's pains first and bestowed the kind-hearted love on them.

It is his motto and his viewpoint on life that we should even pick up the stars for the people's sake and nothing is more precious than them, and the cadres should be people's servants.

Indeed, respected Kim Jong Un is a great sun which embraces the people in his benevolent bosom and gives them vitality and happiness with the light and heat.

Thanks to Comrade Kim Jong Un who embodies the benevolent politics and all-embracing politics of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, the single-minded unity of Songun Korea will further consolidate and the grand garden of love for people will further flourish.

KCNA Denounces Lee Myung Bak′s Reckless Behavior

Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- Lee Myung Bak's hysteria for confrontation with compatriots has reached its height.
Lee, touring a frontline unit on Wednesday, blustered that "the north shows a very bellicose posture" and the Korean Peninsula is a "divided country where exist the most warlike forces in the world."
He went the lengths of crying out for "taking strong posture for counter-action to deter the north from provocation."
This is an unpardonable insult to the mourners in the north still in unbearable sorrow and grief over the loss of the great father of the nation and an act adding to his crimes.
As far as "bellicose nature of the north" touted by Lee Myung Bak is concerned, it is an eruption of anger of the service personnel and people of the DPRK at the worst confrontation and war monger who drove the situation of the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war by insulting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK during the mourning period of the nation.
Lee brought into bolder relief his true colors as anti-DPRK confrontation maniac and human scum by rubbing salt into the wounds of the grief-stricken compatriots.
He issued an order to the whole puppet army to "be on emergency combat alert" and reinforced and deployed armed forces around the five islands in the West Sea of Korea and the frontline areas.
His group worked out even an "emergency plan" for coping with a probable incident, letting loose extremely provocative remarks that "the north may make provocations for rallying its internal forces" and "field commanders should decisively punish any provocation according to their judgment and decision".
As seen above, even during the mourning period the group of traitors leveled guns at the fellow countrymen and brandished swords against them, revealing their intention to do harm to the DPRK. These were the monstrous crimes which could be committed only by those steeped in the consciousness of confrontation with the DPRK to the marrow of their bones.
That was why south Korean people from all walks of life denounced the Lee group, querying "is there anyone to initiate a war during mourning period and is there any depraved guy issuing an emergency alert to a mourner's house?"
The Lee group committed such thrice-cursed crimes as refusing to express condolences, groundlessly shifting the "final responsibility" for the sinking of the warship "Cheonan" and shelling of Yonphyong Island onto the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
This compelled the service personnel and people of the DPRK to harden their will not to deal with Lee Myung Bak group for good and force him to pay for all his treasons.
What he uttered about "bellicose nature" of someone touring the frontline area this time is nothing but sheer sophism to cover up the above-said high treasons. In other words, it is no more than a foolish artifice to evade the responsibility for bedeviling the inter-Korean relations and driving the situation to the brink of war.
The service personnel and people of the DPRK will mercilessly punish those warmongers who hurt the great and sacred dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and the noble feelings and determination to protect it to the last and who are keen to destroy Korean style socialism. -0-

Gloomy Prospect of Capitalist World in New Year

Pyongyang, January 17 (KCNA) -- Various kinds of crimes have taken place in capitalist countries in an unbroken chain at the outset of the new year as they happened last year, throwing people into great uneasiness and horror.

According to VOA, as many as over 40 arsons had occurred in residential areas centering around Hollywood District in Los Angeles, California State from Dec. 29 last year to Jan. 1 this year.

At a time when huge material losses were caused and horror-stricken atmosphere prevailed in the city due to ceaseless arsons four people were shot to death by an unidentified criminal on the outskirts of San Diego City, on Jan. 1.

Horrible murder cases broke out in other capitalist countries including Japan and Britain before and after the New Year.

The ever-deepening unemployment crisis is adding to the worries and sufferings of the toiling masses in the capitalist countries in the new year, too.

The Boeing company on Jan. 4 announced its plan to fire 2 000 employees under the pretext of worsening business.

On Jan. 9 harbor workers of seven ports of Portugal went on a strike demanding stable jobs.

As a result of serious joblessness, an increasing number of people are forced to live below the poverty line.

According to a survey of the Census Bureau of the U.S., the number of the poverty-stricken people reached 49.1 million across the country till the end of last year.

In Greece the number of such people reached more than 2.2 million.

The same is the case with other capitalist countries.

Over 4.4 million toiling people in Spain and 2.78 million in Germany saw out last year and greeted gloomy New Year, their right to work denied.

As seen above, 2012 is a year without any hope for future for the toiling masses in the capitalist society. -0-

Downfall of US Economy in Figures and Facts

Downfall of US Economy in Figures and Facts

Late last year a publication made public 100 figures and facts showing the downfall of the U.S. economy. Saying the U.S. economy is floundering in corruption, misappropriation and debt, the publication pointed out lots of businesses and jobs disappeared in the U.S. Poor people are increasing explosively across the country from the area on the Atlantic to those on the Pacific.

The United States has become a laughing stock of other countries.

◇ Debt on the increase

Now the debt of the United States increased 4 700 times that of 1913 when the U.S. Board of Governors of Federal Reserve System was founded.

Meanwhile, U.S. dollar is devaluated in a planned way by the board.

A commodity that was sold at 29US $ in 1913 is now sold at 457.67 US$.

Since 1976 the United States has got into the red in foreign trade every year, totalling over 750 billion dollars at present.

Debts of American families are 154 % higher than their income.

◇ The richer got richer and the poor poorer

The wealthy classes in the United States, 1% of its population, own more than one third of the national property.

The rate of congressmen millionaires is over 50 times that of ordinary milionaires.

The average pay of chief executives of the top class businesses in 2010 was 343 times that of ordinary Americans. On the contrary, the total property of the poorest Americans was only 2.5% of the national property.

In 2010 the poor increased by 2.6 million, the greatest since 1959 when the statistics began to be taken.

◇ Jobs on the decrease

During 1991-2007 the number of applications for business bankruptcy of Americans, 65-74 in age, increased by 78%.

In December 2006, private business was managed by 16 600 000 men, but now by 14 500 000.

Between December 2000 and December 2010 jobs decreased by 38%, 42% and 48% respectively in Ohio, North Carolina and Michigan.

◇ Children forsaken by society

Over 500 000 children are homeless.

At least 30% of children in 314 counties are on the verge of malnutrition. In Washington, in particular, 32.3% of children are in the state of malnutrition.

In 2010 the rate of poor children increased by 22%.

◇ People's mindset

According to data available, 80% of Americans think that the economy of their country has already declined.

90% recognize the economic situation of their country as deplorable.

The rate was only 11% in January 1999.

Facts prove that the United States, so called an economic giant, is falling downward.

Those Who Hurt Dignity of DPRK Supreme Leadership Deserve Severest Punishment: KCNA

Pyongyang, January 17 (KCNA) -- One month has passed since leader Kim Jong Il, the great father of the nation and loadstar of national reunification, passed away all of sudden to the sorrow of the service personnel and people of the DPRK.

In this period, the tears shed by all Koreans formed a veritable sea and their lamentation shook mountains and rivers.

The whole world shared sorrow with the Korean people over the demise of Kim Jong Il, a great guardian of justice. Personages of many countries expressed deep condolences over his demise irrespective of ideology, political view, nationality and religious belief.

However, it was only the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors that perpetrated thrice-cursed treasons during the mourning over the great loss to the nation.

What is more serious is that the group did not hesitate to insult the great father of the Korean nation.

It worked hard by all means and methods to prevent progressive forces and people from all walks life in south Korea from using the word "demise" in their messages of condolences. It also made public a statement peppered with unspeakable insolent words which can be used only by coldhearted guys.

It hurled the right-wing conservative organizations into areas along the front to scatter leaflets hurting the sacred dignity of the DPRK several times.

It cried out for "taking counter-action by separating people from the leadership of the north." Not content with this, the group imprudently shifted the "final blame" for "Cheonan" warship case and Yonphyong island shelling incident onto the supreme leadership of the DPRK. The group blustered it would never officially express condolences.

This is the most serious provocation to the DPRK.

The DPRK has already solemnly declared that it regards the insult to its supreme leadership as vital as life as the worst crime.

However, the south Korean puppet group staged military exercises, setting the supreme headquarters of the DPRK as targets. Not content with this, it committed such traitorous crime against ethics as insulting it during the mourning over the great loss to the Korean nation.

The DPRK will never pardon these crimes through generations.

The Lee group is a gang of worst political hooligans and depraved guys.

The group's serious insult to the supreme leadership of the DPRK resulted in completely severing the inter-Korean relations.

The resentment of the army and people of the DPRK at the group of traitors has run to the sky.

The group will not be able to escape the severest punishment. -0-

North Koreas New Year's declaration in English - Juche 101 (2012)

ASSPUK,JISGE and UK KFA support CPRFK and KCNA statements


London 16th January Juche 1o1(2012)

The ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA issued a statement in support of the white paper of theCommittee for the peaceful reunification of Korea issued on the 12th of January and the commentary of KCNA titled "Lee Myung Bak group of traitors fated to face severest punishment" of the 14th of January.

We wish to add our voices in support of these important statements. The Lee Myung Bak fascist puppets have gone far beyond the limits of decency, morality and good sense in slandering and insulted the DPRK even when it had suffered the greatest loss. They spread all kinds of lies and calumnies feeding the imperialist media such as the BBC with vile material which should have never seen the light of day. The lies of the stupid half witted south Korean puppets were proved false by the reality of the DPRK where the people and leader form an integral harmonious whole. The people of the DPRK were and are united in their grief for the passing away of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il who was like a father to the people . The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il practised the politics of benevolence and trust which was underpinned by the Juche-based advanced socialist system centred on the popular masses.
It is very foolish for the south Korean puppets to clamour for 'change in the DPRK as the people of the DPRK have the best system and best ideology in the world . If any change is needed on the Korean peninsula ,it is the overthrow of the traitor Lee Myung Bak puppet regime.
The south Korean neo-colonial puppets should be made to pay for their crimes.

ASSPUK and JISGE on Special Report of Political Bureau of WPK

London 15th January Juche 101(2012)

The Association for the Study of Songun Politics of the UK together with the Juche Idea Study of England today issued the following statement.

We are very pleased to read the special report of the Political Bureau of the Workers' Party of Korea issued on the 12th of January which states that

"reflecting the unanimous desire and ardent request of all party members, service personnel and people to hold the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il in high esteem as the eternal leader of the Party and the revolution, glorify his sacred revolutionary life and undying revolutionary feats forever and surely carry to completion the revolutionary cause of Juche started in Mt. Paektu:
1. The great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il will be laid in state at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, the sacred temple of Juche.
2. The statue of the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il will be erected with respect.
3. February 16, the greatest auspicious holiday of the nation when the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il was born, will be instituted as the Day of the Shining Star.
4. Portraits of the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il with smile on his face and towers to his immortality will be built across the country

We applaud this decision as it fully reflects the will of the Korean people to eternally respect the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il ,fully revering him. Juche idea and Songun idea followers will also uphold the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il as the creator of the Songun idea and defender of the independent cause of the world people.
It is just and fitting that a statue of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il should be erected. As a man of great humility and one who put the people and country , first,second and third , comrade Kim Jong Il refused to allow his own statue to be be built. Now it is a pressing need for such a statue to be constructed to reflect the earnest yearning of the Korean and world people for him.
We together with the Korean people and world progressive people observe the Day of the Shining Star and also pay homage to the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il laying in state at the Kumusan Memorial Palace.

Lee Myung Bak Group of Traitors Fated to Face Severest Punishment: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, January 14 (KCNA) -- The anti-DPRK smear campaign of the south Korean puppet forces has reached such pass that the service personnel of the Korean People's Army and people of the DPRK can no longer tolerate it.

During the mourning in December last year, reptile media under the control of the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors let loose ridiculous jargons as regards the time and place of the passing of the fatherly leader Kim Jong Il.

They insulted the Korean people who shed bitter tears at the morning centers, describing them as "forced sorrow and orchestrated." Not content with this, they released such misinformation touching off towering resentment that "those who failed to show tears at memorial services were sent to a concentration camp and the military was ordered to kill three generations of those who attempt to defect to the south."

Intolerable is the hair-raising behavior of the depraved who ceased to live under the same sky with fellow countrymen.

Their release of such misinformation was timed to coincide with the date when the DPRK made public amnesty and its contents were craftily tailored against it. This evil deed could be done only by the despicable guys hell-bent on letting loose invectives and telling lies.

The group was so much afraid of and upset by the single-minded unity of the DPRK that it got frantic with a smear campaign to play down the essence of the amnesty and slander Korean style socialism centered on the popular masses.

The mourning period offered the world an ample opportunity to know about the real picture of the single-minded unity of the DPRK where the leader and the army and the people form an integral whole. The group of traitors hell-bent on the anti-DPRK campaign could hardly understand the weight and sincerity of the tears shed by the service personnel and people of the DPRK and nothing polite could be heard from it. These guys who ceased to be human beings could hardly imagine the feelings of crowds of loyalists who followed the car carrying the bier of the leader in bitter tears, removing the heavy snow by use of their padded clothes and mufflers.

They are pitiable human scum who can never become part of the nation no matter how often they are reborn.

No wonder, personages of Russia and other countries issued declarations of conscience before the world in clear denial of the puppet forces' smear propaganda.

The service personnel and people of the DPRK feel towering hatred as well as redoubled conviction of victory when seeing this sorry sight of the hostile forces.

They will as ever consolidate their single-minded unity in every way no matter what others may say and dynamically advance only along the chosen road.

The Lee group, hell-bent on slinging mud with collections of the world's worst invectives, deserves the severest punishment by justice and truth.

The service personnel and people of the DPRK will force the puppet group to pay the dearest price generation after generation for decrying their single-minded unity, while hurting even the dignity of the supreme leadership

CPRK Secretariat Issues White Paper Slamming Lee Group′s Treachery

CPRK Secretariat Issues White Paper Slamming Lee Group′s Treachery
Pyongyang, January 12 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued a white paper Thursday to inform the world of the crimes the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors committed last year by pushing the inter-Korean relations to the lowest ebb out of its hideous crimes perpetrated over the last four years since its seizure of power.
According to it, the group totally denied the DPRK's proposal for inter-Korean dialogue.
On Jan. 5 last year the government, political parties and organizations of the DPRK in a joint statement proposed to the south Korean authorities, political parties and organizations to hold wide-ranging dialogue and negotiations.
The puppet authorities, however, groundlessly spoke ill of the DPRK's proposal for dialogue from the outset, saying "there is no sincerity in it and it is no more than tactics of the united front."
Moreover, they flatly turned down the proposal for dialogue by putting up the "dismantlement of nuclear program" and solution to the "Cheonan" warship case and the Yonphyong issue and other unreasonable issues as preconditions.
They went the lengths of turning their faces away from dialogue, impudently decrying even the authority of their dialogue partner.
After being compelled to appear at the preliminary military talks, they persistently insisted on the solution to the warship sinking case and Yonphyong Island incident, deliberately creating complexity. They did not hesitate to commit such reckless act as unilaterally walking out of the venue of the talks.
The Lee group derailed not only Red Cross talks and contacts between the north and the south for solving humanitarian issues but NGO dialogue.
As a result, all cooperation projects between the north and the south were suspended, leaving many non-governmental businesses in south Korea bankrupt or forcing them to stop their operations. The south Koreans who eked out their living through cooperation projects were put on the crossroads of life and death.
The Lee group made abortive the joint national events slated to take place on the anniversaries of the publication of the historic inter-Korean declarations.
It prevented the Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps from having communication with the north for discussing a joint declaration of women's organizations in the north and the south to be made public on the anniversary of the March First Popular Uprising. It also disallowed the visit of those concerned of the south side funeral committee to Kaesong to receive a message of condolence sent by the DPRK side on the death of Pak Yong Gil, widow of Rev. Mun Ik Hwan.
The crimes of Lee group are proved by the heinous moves to escalate confrontation with fellow countrymen and anti-DPRK smear campaign.
Last year alone, Lee visited the U.S. several times to beg for support to his confrontation policy and openly let loose such reckless remarks that his north policy would remain unchanged despite domestic and foreign criticism.
The group imposed a heavy penalty upon Rev. Han Sang Ryol on charge of violation of the "National Security Law" after keeping him behind bars for more than a year and suppressed the Youth and Students Solidarity for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration and other organizations in south Korea after labeling them as "enemy benefiting organizations".
The group of traitors disconnected more than 90 internet websites branding them as "pro-north ones" and deleted at least 80 000 notices and arrested all those concerned last year.
They kicked off anti-DPRK plots ceaselessly including spy-ring case and incident of assassination group, infusing confrontation atmosphere.
The Lee group's confrontation moves were at maximum late in December last year when the nation suffered the greatest loss.
No sooner had the sad news of the great loss to the nation been released than the group of puppets convened a "state security meeting" and "emergency state affairs meeting" and put Chongwadae and Administration, puppet army and police on "emergency alert guard and duty" leveling the gun at the fellow countrymen shedding tears in great grief. They dared foolishly try to break the single-minded unity of the DPRK talking about "taking counteraction by separating inhabitants from their leadership".
The south Korean authorities and the group of the "Grand National Party" desperately slandered and insulted pictures of the people in the north expressing condolences and totally banned the Pyongyang visits of south Korean opposition parties and organizations of different social standings. Even the south Korean puppet group brutally suppressed south Korean youths and students and civic organizations for expressing condolences in the incense-burning altars installed by themselves.
They let over 30 right-wing conservative organizations flock to the forefront areas along the military demarcation line to scatter anti-DPRK leaflets whose content was hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and inciting disturbance on the day of bidding last farewell.
Another crime is that the group of traitors escalated the reckless confrontation and war moves.
Last year the group created the crisis of grave military clashes and seriously endangered the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the region.
It committed such unprecedentedly hideous provocations as daringly insulting the supreme leadership of the DPRK one after another last year.
All the facts show that the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors is the number one group of maniacs keen on confrontation and war, the white paper said, warning that the group will face only merciless punishment. -0-

Capitalist Society Is That of Immorality and Depravity

Pyongyang, January 11 (KCNA) -- Capitalist society is falling deeper into quagmire of bankruptcy as all descriptions of immorality and depravity are rife.

Horrible incidents occurred one after another in the capitalist countries including the United States and Japan in recent months.

In December last year a dead body of a seven-year old girl was found in the garbage ground of an apartment building in Atlantic City of New Jersey State, the U.S. Traces proving that she was sexually assaulted and wounds caused by stab were reportedly found on her head and several other parts of her body.

Earlier in July, an 8-year old girl was also found dead in this country after she was kidnapped.

It was reported in mid December last year that a 25-year old woman in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, dragged her 3-year old son with dirty bag on his head, stunning the public.

A frolicsome child free from worries had to be a victim of violence beyond the imagination, even being badly treated by its parent--this is the true picture of corrupt capitalist society.

In capitalist society peace is hard to expect on the New Year due to crimes committed all the year.

At the dawn of the New Year people were seized with anxiety and panic at the gunshot.

In the vicinity of San Diego, California State of the U.S., an unidentified criminal broke into a flat and shot four people to death on the New Year.

A shooting in the UK on Jan. 2 left three people dead.

All the facts clearly show that capitalist society is a veritable hell, a rotten and ailing society. -0-

Truth behind of Warship 'Cheonan' Sinking Disclosed

Pyongyang, January 11 (KCNA) -- Sin Sang Chol, a former member of the joint team for investigation into the warship "Cheonan" sinking, posted an article disclosing the truth behind the case on an internet website of south Korea on Monday.

In the article he had already made a conclusion that there was no explosion that sent the warship into the bottom of the sea, adding he denied the fact that a torpedo went off below the ship.

That is to say, there was no torpedo at all, he stressed, and went on:

Discussion on the torpedo itself is a fabrication.

The Defense Ministry described the case as "sinking by explosion" and made an official announcement. Little over 15 days later, the joint investigation team announced that a thorough survey of the seabed of the waters close to the point where the stern of the ship sank resulted in discovering a torpedo. Then it opened the design of the torpedo and its photo to media.

But, the torpedo made public by the Defense Ministry for the first time touched off a dispute soon. There were many suspicions. Measurement of the design was not right. Why was the numerical value cm? The style of written language was not north's. Why is the torpedo so old as it had been under water just for 50-odd days? With what evidence do they prove the torpedo is from the north?

As these suspicions were made, the joint investigation team opened the "north's torpedo No. 1" in a glass box on May 20, 2010.

The appearance of the torpedo produced as a real thing, not one in photo, made the world attention distant from the photographed torpedo made public five days ago.

But, what mattered was the second.

A scrutiny into the torpedo in the photo and the second torpedo in a glass box shows they were not identical to each other.

At a glance, the second torpedo looks similar to the first torpedo. But it is not hard to clarify the fact that the comparison of every part with those of the torpedo produced earlier suggests that they are quite different from each other.

There were clear traces proving much effort was made to make the torpedo produced for the second time look similar to the first torpedo opened to media.

The results of the close photographing of the torpedo showed such clumsy work that traces of the work done by a press to make the parts of the controversial torpedo look similar to the old rusted parts in the center of the torpedo were clearly visible.

He consulted the two different torpedoes with lawyers and submitted its results to the court bench as evidence along with convincing opinions on them.

There were clear traces of rubbing rust to write "No. 1." How do you think about the fact that there were not one but two torpedoes, an indication of the height of fabrication? -0-

DPRK′s Treasured Swords for Victory in Its New Century

Pyongyang, January 10 (KCNA) -- For the army and people of the DPRK, Juche 101(2012) is the year when a new century starts.

The joint New Year editorial defines the courageous mettle of the brilliant commanders of Mt. Paektu and their way of offensive as treasured swords for sure victory in the grand march of the new century.

In the past century Kim Il Sung's nation won victories with the treasured swords.

President Kim Il Sung achieved the historic cause of the national liberation through a protracted fight against the Japanese imperialists with neither state-backing home front nor support from a regular army.

When the U.S. imperialists, boasting of their numerical and technical superiority over the DPRK, launched an attack on the country, backed by its 15 satellites, the south Korean puppet army and Japanese militarists, he won the fatherland liberation war in the spirit of stubborn offensive.

Kim Il Sung made the U.S. imperialists kneel down before the Korean people with a strong will to answer their retaliation with retaliation and their total war with a total war when their armed spy ship "Pueblo" illegally entered the territorial waters of the DPRK, driving the situation to the brink of a war.

In 1993, after the end of the cold war, when the imperialists launched a general offensive against the DPRK to stifle it, causing deep concern of the world, leader Kim Jong Il, an illustrious commander of Mt. Paektu, declared a state of semi-war in the country and the DPRK quitted the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), making the imperialists bite the dust.

The world admired Kim Jong Il, correct in judging, strong in resolution and merciless in strike, for his invincible spirit of offensive, boldness and superb stratagem.

Kim Jong Il, with an iron-willed pluck and boldness, won one victory after another in the politico-military confrontation with the imperialists.

The DPRK has become a socialist bulwark which the enemies do not dare to provoke. It is thanks to the revolutionary disposition and leadership of the illustrious commanders of Mt. Paektu, who overcame all adversities with confidence in victory.

The Korean revolution will continue to emerge victorious under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, another illustrious commander identical to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. -0-
