Lee Myung Bak Regime of S. Korea Will Face Stern Punishment: KPA Supreme Command Spokesman
Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army on April 18 issued the following statement:

The army and people of the DPRK celebrated in splendor with great national pride the centenary of the auspicious 100th Day of the Sun amid great attention and expectation of the whole world.

The celebrations were a grand political festival as they demonstrated the unshakable resolution of the army and people of the DPRK to dynamically advance toward the new century of Juche full of conviction and optimism after reviewing with pride the glorious 100-year-long history of Juche Korea.

The festive atmosphere ran high as Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un was elected to the top post of the party, state and revolution of the DPRK. The world came to look up to the DPRK with admiration and envy, saying that the most prominent man appeared in Korea in the East.

The people in the south are warmly hailing with national pride and honor the "appearance of extraordinary young leader" as the "rebirth of President Kim Il Sung", the father of the nation and great sage.

Even at this hour an unprecedented jubilee which started in this land and is spreading to various parts of the world is turning into mankind's events replete with "worship for Kim Jong Un" and "trust in Kim Jong Un".

It is only traitor Lee Myung Bak and his group that are committing such extreme provocations as chilling the festive atmosphere of fellow countrymen and daring hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

The Lee group is hurling elder reactionaries of the "ROK Elders Alliance" and student hooligans into Kwanghwamun Square and other parts of Seoul to stage such hideous rowdyism as hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

The group is wirepulling behind the scene such reckless acts as egging riff-raffs on to set up models portraying the supreme leadership of the DPRK and fire at them.

From right after the grand military parade of the DPRK to celebrate the Day of the Sun, the Lee group let wicked conservative media including Dong-A Ilbo paint a wrong picture of even the image of the dignified DPRK for its false propaganda purpose.

No matter how frantic the group may get with confrontation with fellow countrymen and no matter how high-handed it may go, there should always be a limit.

In view of the ceaseless grave provocations which should not be overlooked, the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army, as already declared, solemnly re-clarifies the will to wage an uninterrupted all-army and all-people sacred war to wipe out the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors, the sworn enemy with whom the nation can never live under the same sky.

The dynamic march past of ranks of paraders and powerful means for limitless strike on the square to celebrate the auspicious Day of the Sun will lead to the Korean-style battles to blow up the stronghold of the group of traitors.

When the group of traitors committed the thrice-cursed treason against the nation which suffered the great loss last year and hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK at units of the puppet army later, the DPRK warned the group of those crimes and clarified internally and externally its stand to take merciless retaliatory actions.

What is more irrepressible and intolerable is the resentment of the army and people of the DPRK at the group of traitors.

The immediate goal of the DPRK is to cut off the windpipes of the group and its followers hell-bent on hideous provocations and blow up the bases for provocations in the land and sky.

The single-mindedly united army and people of the DPRK who regard the dignity of the supreme leadership as more precious than their own lives will take merciless revenge upon any perpetrator of hideous provocations no matter where he is.

As even the heart of Seoul is served as a base for provocative acts of hurting the dignity of the DPRK's supreme leadership, the DPRK will take a special action to blow up everything there.

Then the group will keenly realize what merciless punishment the whole army and all people of the DPRK will mete out to it for the thrice-cursed treason committed up to now.

No matter how desperately dogs may bark, they can do nothing against the bright sun.

The army and people of the DPRK who hold its supreme commander in high esteem as the eternal sun will step up the historic advance for prosperity at the watershed of history in which a new century of Juche starts, while waging a sacred war to wipe out a tiny handful of group of traitors to the last man.

Those who dare provoke the inviolable DPRK should bear in mind that they would never be able to escape a stern punishment.
