Some days ago the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea succeeded in the test-launch of the inter-continental ballistic missile Hwasong 14, which was conducted in the northwest region of the country. This sound of victory is now shaking the whole world.

Significance of Victory

It is not true that justice always emerges victorious. History has witnessed victory of injustice more often than victory of justice. Justice not supported by strength is merely an empty talk. The world today shows this truth more clearly.

After the Second World War, the world has not granted any nuclear state any right to threaten non-nuclear states. However, the US has threatened the DPRK for over half a century with nuclear weapons. To defend its rights to survival and development, the DPRK was compelled to possess nuclear weapon. The US and its vassal forces resorted to all kinds of sanctions and pressure, charging the DPRK’s self-defensive measure as illegal.

No country uttered a word of protest against the unjustifiable act of the US, the world’s greatest nuclear nation. On the contrary, some big countries, studying the face of US, toed its line with the motive for gaining some “profits.” The US, with the colours flying and band playing, hurled a massive means of nuclear strike such as aircraft carriers, strategic bombers and submarines in and around the Korean peninsula, watching for a chance to deal a nuclear preemptive strike against the country.

At long last, the DPRK dealt a final blow to the arbitrariness of the US. It put an end to the history, when injustice was lording it over the world by relying on brute strength. The history of the US, a self-acclaimed leader of the world, which was too confident that it could do whatever it wanted, and an arrogant empire which thought that it could commit any act if it were displeasure, has come to an end.

The DPRK’s success constitutes a historic event which reliably guarantees peace on the Korean peninsula, in northeast Asia and the rest of the world. As it has possessed ICBM, the US cannot ever dream about unleashing another war on the Korean peninsula, and the DPRK could guarantee peace and stability in northeast Asia and the rest of the world.

Historical Inevitability

In 1905 when Korea was placed under military occupation by Japan, it was incapable of producing even a small rifle; its total output of electric power was 227 h.p. Theodore Roosevelt, US president in early 20th century, debased Koreans as a nation who was incapable of raising even a finger to defend their country. The country was subjected to fate of colonial salve under the military occupation of Japanese imperialists for 40 years because of weak military strength.

Based on the lessons taught by the past history of his country, Kim Il Sung, founding-father of socialist Korea, formulated the Songun idea in the early days of his revolutionary struggle, and exerted all his efforts to strengthening the country’s defence capabilities. Kim Jong Il, who

formulated Songun politics as the basic mode of socialist politics in the late 1990s, also attached primary importance to strengthening the defence capabilities, thus developing the country into a nuclear nation against the increasing US nuclear blackmail.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, carrying forward the Songun-based leadership of the leaders of the preceding generations, advanced the line of promoting economic construction and building up the nuclear forces simultaneously, and strengthened the nuclear forces in every way possible. Now the DPRK possesses SLBM technology, ballistic rockets with various firing ranges and H-bombs. And now it succeeded in the test-firing of Hwasong 14. These are an inevitability born of history.

Victory of the DPRK Will Be Eternal

The successful test-firing of ICBM by the DPRK has thrown the US and other hostile forces into utter confusion. Though the US is imposing “maximum pressure” against the country it has failed to check it in its advance towards perfecting its nuclear forces.

For the present, what can the US do?

In case it opts for a war, it has to get ready to go back to the state before the primitive age. For all that, it cannot sit idle only looking at the DPRK’s strengthening of its nuclear forces. The successful test-firing of Hwasong 14 in a matter of two months since its successful test-firing of Hwasong 12 must have given a strong impact on the US and its vassal forces.

There is no other option for the US, however desperate it may be, than to acknowledge DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons and come to the negotiating table.

No sanction or pressure cut ice with the DPRK. Some days ago, US President Trump wrote on Twitter that the US plan to move China so as to check north Korea’s nuclear programme ended in failure. The chairman of the American Diplomatic Council confessed that denuclearization of north Korea was an unrealistic goal. These remarks were made before the test-launch of Hwasong 14. It is not so difficult to guess what Trump and other American rulers would say. Western political analysts said that as the DPRK became the sixth nation that possesses ICBM, a major variable came into being for the security topography in northeast Asia and the rest of the world.

The US missile experts acknowledged that Hwasong 14 is not a copy or combination of others’, but a genuine one developed by north Korea itself. They were unanimous in saying that the re-entry technology and the auxiliary engine combination technology and attitude control capability had reached world standard, and as the ICBM can carry even heavy nuclear warheads, the prospect of its further development is smooth. It is their initial analysis that Hwasong 14 made a technological advance of surpassing the US, Russian and Chinese ICBMs, and that it is highly probable that New York and Washington are within its range. CNN and other major US media organs reported that the US government officials confirmed that what north Korea fired was an ICBM.

The successful test-launch of Hwasong 14 tells: nuclear weapon in the hands of justice is ever victorious and nuclear weapon in the hands of injustice is doomed to failure.

This is the declaration of truth and justice taught by history.
