The United States will not have the world dominance as long as DPRK remains the centre of anti-imperialist struggle, the North’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) says on the occasion of the 54th anniversary of the “revolutionary leadership of the great generalissimo” [Kim Jong Il] that will be marked on August 25.
“The United States is well aware that its design for world domination can never come true as long as the DPRK remains a stronghold of the anti-imperialist struggle and, that is why the former has persisted on the moves to stifle the latter,” KCNA says. “After all, the US proved to be powerless in showdown with the DPRK which has pursued the Songun policy,” the agency says.
According to KCNA, “Leader Kim Jong Il inspected the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People’s Army on August 25, Juche 49 (1960), starting his Songun (army-first) revolutionary leadership. This was a manifestation of his strong will to accomplish the cause of the Songun revolution, pioneered by President Kim Il Sung, with arms.”
The “Songun policy” term came into use in North Korea at the turn of the 21st century. This notion is translated into Russian as the “army-first” or “military-oriented policy.” The Songun ideas were proclaimed by Kim Jong Il. The North Korean media started to pay special attention to them since the beginning of 2001 after taking office by US President George W. Bush who assumed a tough policy line towards DPRK.
