Kim Jong Il Was Defender of Justice

Pyongyang, December 20 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il passed away to the people's grief before seeing the victory of the cause of building a thriving nation, reunification of the country and accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche. The feats he performed by winning a victory after victory with his Songun politics, however, are recorded in the history of the country.

He honorably defended the socialist gains, the precious heritage left by President Kim Il Sung, with his original Songun politics and turned the country into an invincible political and ideological power in which single-minded unity has been achieved, a nuclear weapons state and a matchless military power.

He was born in the anti-Japanese battle area in Mt. Paektu and grew up hearing the command of charge shouted by anti-Japanese guerrillas. He nurtured the wisdom and courage of a great commander at the table of the supreme command for mapping out a plan of operation during the Fatherland Liberation War.

For decades since he started his Songun revolutionary leadership he has kept to the path of Songun going through thick and thin. This would have been unimaginable with the courage and pluck of an ordinary human being.

He brought only miracles and victories despite the worst difficulties with his extraordinary political caliber.

Mountain ranges of the frontline areas including Mt. Osong, Chol Pass and 1211 Height are associated with the countless immortal footsteps left by Kim Jong Il who continued his journey to the front day and night while dealing merciless heavy blows to the enemies.

Thanks to his Songun politics, miraculous scenes are being presented one after another on this land.
