Rodong Sinmun Praises Chairman Kim Jong Il as Peerless Patriot
Pyongyang, February 15 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in an article that Chairman Kim Jong Il is an outstanding leader and peerless patriot who opened up a new history of prospering socialist Korea with his outstanding idea, leadership ability and matchless patriotic devotion.

The Chairman had led the socialist country to great change and rapid development with his gifted wisdom, iron will and extraordinary leadership ability, the article says, and goes on:

The most precious patriotic exploit performed by the Chairman is that he vigorously built the driving force, the foundation of building a powerful country.

He established the revolutionary outlook on the leader on the principle that the leader is the supreme brain of the popular masses and the centre of unity and leadership, and made great efforts to model the whole society on the monolithic idea centered on the leader.

Starting his work at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, he assumed the historic task to thoroughly establish the leader’s ideological and leadership system within the WPK and opened up a new era of revolutionary party building.

He set independence as the cornerstone of the state existence, resolutely rejected worshiping of big powers, dogmatism and the high-handedness and pressure of outsiders and energetically led the work to build socialism by our own efforts in accordance with our idea and will.

He showed with practical examples how to uphold and carry forward the leader’s idea and cause in the whole period of his revolutionary leadership for more than half a century.

The patriotic cause, the revolutionary cause of Juche, associated with the whole life of Kim Jong Il is now being creditably carried forward and is dynamically advancing on a higher stage under the leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

The victory in the cause of building a powerful country of Juche is sure to win thanks to Kim Jong Un's leadership over the Korean revolution and the most advantageous socialist system and inexhaustible national power.
