When the United States forced a war on the DPRK, there were few people who thought the latter, less than two years since its founding, would emerge victorious in the war.
The U.S. hurled into the Korean War one third of their army, one fifth of their air force and most of battleships belonging to the Pacific Fleet and over 2 million troops including those of their 15 satellite nations and south Korean puppet army as well as a great deal of the latest military hardware.
However, the U.S. had no idea about the immense strength of the army and people of the DPRK.
The army and people of the DPRK who rose as one under the wise leadership of President Kim Il Sung decisively beat back the armed invasion by the U.S. imperialists to win a historic victory in the three-year long war.
It sustained a heavy loss of manpower and materials nearly 2.3 times greater than it had suffered in the four-year-long Pacific War, it had no other choice but to sign an armistice agreement.
The myth of the U.S. “mightiness” was shattered to pieces by its defeat in the war.
The world got to know well through the war that the U.S. much-touted “mightiness” was just nonsense.
Clark, “commander of the UN Forces,” deplored that he gained the unenviable distinction of being the first USA commander in history to sign an armistice agreement without victory. Former US Secretary of State Marshall admitted: “The myth exploded to atoms, and it became clear to everyone that the United States was not so strong as others had thought her to be.”
July 27 was etched in the memory of the Korean people as the day of a great victory that they defended the freedom and independence of the country by smashing to the smithereens the myth of the “mightiness” of the U.S.
The U.S. has staged military provocations and war drills for aggression even after the war ended in a truce.
The army and people of the DPRK have reliably defended the security of socialist country and the revolutionary gains under the leadership of the KPA supreme commander Kim Jong Un.
Marshal Kim Jong Un solemnly declared that we will counter the US nuclear threat with merciless nuclear strike and respond an aggressive war with a righteous total war to cope with war provocations of the U.S. and its followers.
If the U.S. unleashes another war in Korea, trumpeting the strength-almighty theory, being oblivious of the historical lesson in the 1950s, they will meet more shameful, bitter defeat.
As Marshal Kim Jong Un defends and glorifies the DPRK’s dignity and future with his iron grit, will and brilliant stratagem, the victorious July will shine forever.
