ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
London 21st of August Juche 100 (2011)
Today the ASSPUK and JISGE issued a joint statement saluting the 51st anniversary of the start of the Songun revolutionary leadership,an auspicious event in the history of the Songun revolution , the history of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea and the world anti-imperialist struggle.
The Songun revolutionary leadership started on the 25th of August when the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il made an inspection of the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guard 105 Tank Division of the Korean People’s Army. This KPA unit itself had profound historical significance as was named after an anti Japanese revolutionary fighter who had also been a divisional commander in the Fatherland Liberation War. The tank divsion had liberated Seoul in the Fatherland Liberation War breaking through the barrier of national division imposed by the US imperialists.
The guidance, of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il, to Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guard 105 tank division epitimotised the revolutionary Songun idea and spirit of putting military affairs first and politics second. Moreover it put forward the concept of the army as the pillar of the revolution. This brilliantly encapsulated the whole experience of the Korean revolution which began and advanced by the force of arms.
Leader Kim Jong Il strengthened the KPA ideologically and political as well increasing its combat strength. He ensured the KPA was modelled on the monolithic ideology of Juche and was an army of the leader, an army of the party , the revolution and the working class. The Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il firmly eschewed and rejected the non-class , “non ideological ” theories of the modern revisionists as well those theories that prettify imperialism and preach submission to it.
The KPA and Korean people under the Songun revolutionary leadership achieving great feats in defending the country from the US imperialists.The KPA captured the USS Pueblo and brought down the US imperialist aggressor spy plane the EC121.They resolutely countered the US imperialist provocation at Panmumjom in 1976 and intercepted the Yankee helicopter that had intruded into DPRK airspace in 1994.
Thanks to the inspired Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong, fearless commander of Mt Paektu the DPRK faced down the US in the first and second ‘nuclear crisis’ in which the US imperialists and international reactionaries tried to stifle Korean style people -centred socialism. The DPRK defeated US imperialism in the war without gunshots by coming to posses a self-defensive nuclear deterrent and successfully tested it defying US imperialism and tearing its policies to shreds.
The Songun politics created by the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il is the perfect political mode for socialism . Songun means that socialism is strong . It defends the independence of socialism.
The Songun revolutionary leadership is leading the Korean revolution and DPRK forward to victory and is carrying forward the Juche revolutionary cause pioneered by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. The Songun revolutionary leadership , carried out over a period of 5 decades, is a profound inspiration to the peoples aspiring after independence and socialism.
