Why There can never be a military coup in People's Korea !


Some of the media such as the US "Washington Post " and the UK "Business Insider " have come out with the totally absurb and ridiculous story about a "military coup " People's Korea " etc. This is total nonsense . Such a thing can never happen in People's Korea !
For one thing , the biggest mastermind of coups in the world is the United States ! , which has instigated 100s of military coups in the world(see the website "Third World Traveller " or read the book "Rogue State " by William Blum for reference ) . There is an old joke "why are there no military coups in the US ? answer there is no US Embassy in Washington ! . Jokes aside , there is of course no US Embassy in Pyongyang , so no CIA base from which to plot a coup in the DPRK !
Moreover in People's Korea society is based on the unity of the people , party , army and leader . The army in the DPRK is an army of the party , its weapons are levelled in the direction set by the Workers' Party . Go to the DPRK and watch a military parade and you will see not only the national flag of the DPRK and the Supreme Commander's flag but also the red flag of the Workers' Party of Korea .
The DPRK is a most stable and harmonious society without social conflict or class contradictions.The DPRK is one of the most stable countries on earth, in fact probably the most stable country in the world . In the DPRK there is no unemployment ,there are no spending cuts and taxation was abolished in 1974 .
The DPRK is based on the Juche Idea , the philosophical principle of which is that man is the master .Thus because of the socialist ownership of the means of production which is both underpinned and enhanced by the Juche Idea , people in the DPRK have a high sense of ‘taking ownership’ of ‘stakeholding’ which does not exist in any capitalist country. Moreover politics in the DPRK are based on benevolence and trust ,the supreme principle of the party and the state is to improve living standard.
There is nothing inside the DPRK that can produce a sramble for power amongst army officers,
It is a very silly day dream of the US imperialists to think of a "coup " in the DPRK . However the possiblity of a coup by neo-cons and the deep state against Trump if he signs a deal with the DPRK is very real indeed as is a coup by ultra rightists ,backed by the US in south Korea against the apparently "liberal " government of Moon Jae In!
The enemies of the DPRK need to stop daydreaming !

KCNA Commentary Calls for Facing up to Present Phase of DPRK-U.S. Dialogue

Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- The international community is hailing the efforts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to promote detente and build wonderful future in the Korean peninsula.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, has put the DPRK on the status of a world-level strategic state with his extraordinary wisdom, matchless courage and outstanding political caliber, and is defending peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region.

He made a strategic decision to end the inglorious history of the DPRK-U.S. relations and received U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo who visited the DPRK. And he took a series of crucial and bold steps for peace and stability of the peninsula and the world.

In this regard, world public and media comment that the present phase of dialogue has been provided by the tremendous national power of the DPRK and its pro-active efforts.

Kazbek Taysaev, secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, at a joint seminar of political parties and organizations of Russia said that peaceful environment has now been created on the Korean peninsula thanks to Kim Jong Un's bold decision and positive efforts of the Workers' Party of Korea, adding that the world keenly realizes his greatness and the WPK's wise guidance in the picture of the DPRK making development on a daily basis.

The Canadian newspaper Toronto Star said that north Korea is actually steering the present situation and the U.S. is following it, adding: What the world should know is the fact that north Korea has won in the decades-long confrontation with the U.S. and the U.S. and its allies have been passively reacting to north Korea's policy. North Korea is a small country but it is a military power and plays a leading role.

The African Regional Committee for Friendship and Solidarity with the Korean People headquartered in Nigeria in an article posted on its internet homepage said that when compared with the U.S. boasting of the "mightiness" of its economic potentials and military capabilities, the DPRK is a small country incomparable with it in territory and population. But the DPRK is led by HE Kim Jong Un with unusual stratagem and pluck and it has the army and people remaining true to their cause.

This being a hard reality, there are some arguments describing the improvement of situation in the Korean peninsula as "result of hard-line diplomacy" of the U.S. and "result of sustained pressure". It seriously chills the atmosphere of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue and is of no help to the development of the situation.

Explicitly speaking, the present situation development is a change that has been positively made thanks to the matchless political savvy and strategic decision of the Supreme Leader of the DPRK, not just a passive response to pressure by someone.

It would be absolutely beneficial to the world peace and stability to have a proper understanding of the present phase of situation on the Korean peninsula. -0-

KCNA Commentary Warns S. Korean Authorities against Provocative Moves

Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- Days ago, human scum of the "Alliance for the Movement of Free North" in south Korea, a vicious organization of defectors from the north, scattered leaflets slandering the DPRK.

This is a deliberate provocation of the group of traitors drawing ire from all people as it is aimed at putting the brake on the process for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations.

Such provocation can never hurt the high prestige of the DPRK.

The human scum are making desperate efforts to hinder the improvement of the north-south relations as they will be wretched beings if the north-south relations improve.

That's why south Korean people from all walks of life have bitterly denounced the leaflet scattering as behavior challenging the Panmunjom Declaration.

What matters is that the south Korean authorities behave vaguely, talking about "serious concern".

As already known, in the Panmunjom Declaration the north and the south agreed to stop all the hostile acts including the loud-speaker broadcasting and scattering of leaflets in the areas along the Military Demarcation Line from May 1.

However, the south Korean authorities "requested" at the most the "non-governmental organizations to positively cooperate with the work to stop leaflet scattering against the north".

Why do they make such "request" to the living corpses, who have no right to exist under this sky for their crimes, over such important matter as implementing the Panmunjom Declaration which was made before the entire nation?

It is too natural that the different circles of south Korea have blamed the authorities, who failed to take the first step for implementing the declaration in a responsible way, for their incompetence.

If the north-south relations face a grave difficulty again owing to the provocation of human scum, the blame for it will be entirely on the south Korean authorities.

They must know what price they will be made to pay.

They should come out for honest implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration, though belatedly, if they do not want to pay dearly.

We will watch their follow-up measure and movement. Regret will not mend matters. -0-

Thoroughgoing implementation of the Panmunjeom Declaration

Now south Korean people of different strata are launching various drive to support the Panmunjeom Declaration and implement it.  
Several organizations including the South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration and the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions expressed their will to conduct vigorous actions to implement the Panmunjeom Declaration.
Some days ago, the Daejeon Headquarters of the South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration held a press conference to renew its determination to implement the Panmunjeom Declaration, while saying the Panmunjeom Declaration is a historic one that reflects the July 4 Joint Statement, the June 15 Joint Declaration and the October 4 Declaration. 
The Ulsan Headquarters revealed its intention in a news conference to take the lead in implementing the Panmunjeom Declaration, asserting that it would foil vicious move of the Liberty Korea Party which is making frantic attempt to defame the April 27 Declaration.
A pro-reunification group called press conference to express its will to wage a dynamic action to implement the April 27 Declaration, noting that whenever hurdles and difficulties lie in the way of implementing the Panmunjeom Declaration, no difficulties are insurmountable when the south and the north of Korea join hands.
A personage of the KCTU said with emotion that inter-Korean summit and the adoption of the April 27 Declaration are an event of historic significance.
By implementing the April 27 Declaration, the south and the north of Korea should promote co-prosperity in broad fields and bring earlier peace and reunification, he added.
The broad spectrum of south Korean people are carrying on their action to support inter-Korean summit and the April 27 Declaration and implement it. It is their ardent desire and reflection of their inflexible will to bring earlier a new spring of independent reunification true to intention of Chairman Kim Jong Un of the DPRK State Affairs.    

Marking the 38th Gwangju popular uprising

Marking the 38th Gwangju popular uprising

It has been 38 years since the Gwangju popular uprising.
The Gwangju Popular Uprising in 1980 was a bloody anti-U.S., anti-fascist patriotic struggle staged by the south Korean people to put an end to the U.S. colonial rule, ferocious fascist military dictatorial regime and to achieve independence, democracy and reunification.
The uprisers seized the city for ten days, dealt a telling blow at the protracted military fascist dictatorship and, shook the U.S. colonial rule to its very foundation.
It is 38 years since the uprising but the desire of the brave participants in the resistance to see an independent and democratic new society and achieve the reunification of the country has not yet come true.
The U.S. has posed itself as master of south Korea and inflicted indescribably horrible disasters and sufferings upon the Korean nation. The pro-U.S. conservative force, which accepted the baton from past military fascist junta, had been given deserved punishment by the people, however, it has made desperate efforts to revive the past days.
A candlelight rally was held in Gwangju on May 17 in memory of victims of Gwnagju massacre.
About 10 000 residents including members of the Gwangju Headquarters of the South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration, the April 16 Consultative Council of Families and families of victims took part in the rally.
The fighting spirit of uprisers, who sacrificed their precious youth and lives for independence and democracy of south Korea and national reunification, is alive in Gwangju, they said.   
Their fighting spirit is fadeless no matter how much water may flow under the bridge and they should gratify the uprisers’ cherished desire, they noted.  
The south Korean people of every degree will surely realize independence, democracy and reunification desired by the uprisers and people by launching a vigorous drive to throw overboard the conservative force as early as possible with the spirit and stamina displayed at the Gwangju popular uprising.

KCNA Commentary Warns Japan against Militarist Frenzy

Pyongyang, May 21 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries have reached the extremes in challenging the atmosphere for regional peace and stability.

There take place joint drills of the ground "Self-Defense Force" and the maritime "Self-Defense Force" the first of their kind amid the moves for retrogressive constitutional revision getting earnest.

The amphibious vehicle launch drill, landing drill, and airborne transport drill involving the amphibious task force and the first helicopter unit belonging to the ground SDF and the maritime SDF prove the nature of the drills to be of continental aggression, not "self-defense".

This is part of the moves for militarist revival getting pronounced with each passing day.

It is not a secret that the Japanese reactionaries have systematically moved in an all-round way to avenge Japan's defeat and to realize the old dream of the "Greater East-Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" since right after its defeat in war.

With intention to imbue the whole society of Japan with the reinvasion design and revanchism, they have been hell-bent on securing legal and institutional mechanism aimed at militarist revival while denying the past crimes and distorting the history.

Getting more persistent are the moves for retrogressive constitutional revision aimed at rewriting the present constitution which specifies Japan's non-possession of the three services and other capabilities for fighting a war and its abandonment of belligerent right.

What arouses serious concern of neighboring countries are the moves to adjust the relevant law of the SDF, main force for executing the militarist war, reorganize its mechanism and ensure material reinforcement.

At the connivance of the U.S. Japan put into effect the "security legislation" involving the law on SDF, the law on situation by armed attack and the law on situation in surrounding areas in March 2016, thus drastically expanding the scope of operation by the SDF under the pretext of exercising the "right to collective self-defense".

Through the formation of an amphibious task force specializing in seizing remote islands and establishing the "general ground force command" invested with the command of the ground SDF, the services and arms and commanding system of the Imperial Japanese Army are being revived.

Through the large amount of arms expenditure, Japan has possessed of the huge maritime force next to the U.S. in the Asia-Pacific and more ground force than the combination of the ground forces and marines of Britain. The SDF is little different from a regular army capable of fighting a war on a moment's notice, unlike its name.

It is against this backdrop that the military exercises, which had been carried out by different units and services in the past, are now carried out as combined and joint drills involving several services and arms. Herein lie the danger and seriousness of the recent exercises.

Japan's militarist chariot has now entered the final line toward the war.

The Japanese reactionaries are mistaken.

The Korean nation and the Asian peoples who had been subject to huge pain and misfortune by the Japanese militarists in the past closely follow the Japanese reactionaries watching for a chance for reinvasion, and will never remain an on-looker to them.

It is by no means fortuitous that the Japanese reactionaries' militarist moves have faced opposition and rejection by the Japanese and the international community as they go against the trend for d├ętente in the Korean peninsula and the region.

Clear is the destination of the Japanese militarist chariot rushing headlong into aggression. This is only leading Japan to ruin. -
