Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected the Command of the KPA Strategic Force on August 14.
He waved back to enthusiastically cheering service members and posed for a picture with them.
He went round historical mementoes and data displayed in the Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism Study Hall.
Going round them, he looked back with deep emotion on the great leadership feats of the brilliant commanders of Mt Paektu, recorded on every page of the history of the KPA Strategic Force displaying its might with the strength unprecedented in the world as a powerful strike service, symbolic of the dignity and power of Korea.
Then, at the command post, he listened to General Kim Rak Gyom’s decision on the Strategic Force’s plan for an enveloping fire at Guam.
He examined the plan for a long time and discussed it with the commanding officers in real earnest.
He praised the KPA Strategic Force for drawing up a close and careful plan as planned and intended by the Party and examined the firing preparations for power demonstration.
After listening to the commander of the Strategic Force that it is waiting for the order of the Party Central Committee after rounding off the preparations for the enveloping fire at Guam, he said with great satisfaction that the spirit of Hwasong artillerymen is very high and he was freshly determined, seeing by himself the combat preparedness and the sky-high spirit of the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit.
He said that the US imperialists put their necks into the noose due to their reckless military confrontation racket, adding that he would watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees spending a hard time of every minute of their miserable lot.
He said that he wants to advise the US, which is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the touch-and-go situation, running helter-skelter, to take into full account gains and losses with clear head whether the prevailing situation is more unfavourable for any party.
In order to defuse the tensions and prevent a dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the US to make a proper option first and show it through action, as it committed provocations after introducing huge nuclear strategic equipment into the vicinity of the peninsula, he said, adding that the US should stop at once arrogant provocations against the DPRK and unilateral demands and not provoke it any longer.
He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared, warning the US that it should think reasonably and judge properly not to suffer shame to be hit by the DPRK again.
He said that if the planned fire of power demonstration is carried out as the US is going more reckless, it will be the most delightful historic moment when the Hwasong artillerymen will wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks, underlining the need to be always ready for launching so as to go into action anytime once our Party decides.
Looking round a military training school and gymnasium, he called for firmly establishing Juche in education and steadily improving the quality of military training and thus preparing all the artillerymen of the large combined units to be fighters capable of waging campaign of brains, who are well versed in modern military science and technology, enemy’s changed war methods and Korean-style war methods against them.
He underscored the need to certainly establish the system of re-educating commanding officers and technicians of the Strategic Force in line with modernization and upgrading of ballistic rockets.
Going round supply service facilities of the large combined unit, including the dining hall of a sub-unit, he took warm care of solders’ life as their real father would do.
He enjoyed a performance given by the art squad of the large combined unit at the solders hall.
He expressed satisfaction over the wonderful performance given by members of the art squad through numbers vividly representing the operational mission and features of the Strategic Force and the desire, thoughts and feelings of the Hwasong artillerymen, and gave precious teachings for its performing activities.
The Strategic Force has a very important position and duty in carrying out the strategic plans of the WPK, he said, stressing the need for the Strategic Force to firmly establish the unified leadership system and the unified command and management system of the Supreme Commander over the nuclear force and further complete the Juche-oriented rocket strike methods.
Giving an instruction of great trust that he remains confident thanks to the KPA Strategic Force, a reliable treasured sword guaranteeing the everlasting future of the country and the nation, he expressed expectation and belief that all the officers and men of the Strategic Force would bring about a fresh turn in rounding off combat preparations, bearing in mind the important mission they have assumed before the Party, the country and the people.
The officers and men of the KPA Strategic Force, who received great trust from him, were firmly determined to score the final victory in the standoff with the US by scorching with super strong strike the targets in south Korea, Japan, operational area in the Pacific and the US mainland, flying the sacred red flags of the Party and the Supreme Commander at every matchless launching pad once he gives an order.
Accompanying him were KPA Vice-Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Kim Jong Sik, deputy-department director of the WPK Central Committee.
