Coming 8th of September marks the 77th year of the US occupation in south Korea. (US Army Landing in south Korea: 8th of September, 1945)
After the end of the 2nd World War in September 1945, US thrusted its army into south Korea under the pretext of "disarming Japanese army" to fulfill its long-cherished wild dream of invading whole Korea. The US aim was to make south Korea as its military base in order to invade the north and further to establish its dominance in the northeast Asia and the world.
From the first day of the occupation, the US ordered compulsory winding-up of people’s committees which were organized at the initiatives of the Korean people, and imposed military rule in south Korea.
Meanwhile, the US fabricated puppet government in the south as the executer of its war policy, and thoroughly geared all spheres of the south Korean politics, economy and culture to its purpose of aggression.
In June 1950, just after 5 years of its occupation, US provoked Korean war as a "test ground" for its world dominance strategy, as "the field of decisive battle between socialism and capitalism" and a "crusade" for its world dominance.
The US uttered wild words that "they would conclude the war within 72 hours". The U.S, in an attempt to destroy the DPRK that was only two years old, hurled into the war an armed force of over two million troops including the armies of its satellite states and a huge amount of military equipment.
However, the Korean army and people, under the wise leadership of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung, emerged victorious in the war against US and its 15 satellite aggressors. US loss amounted to 2.3 fold of that during 4-year-long Pacific War.
The "US News and World Report" of the US reported that US loss during the Korean war was bigger than two times loss of five big wars in US history; Independence War, Mexican War, US-Spain War and Philippine War.
At last the US was defeated for the first time in its history and had to sign an armistice agreement on July 27th, 1953.
Over 70 years has passed since the beginning of the tragedy of the Korean division, and the peace is yet to come to Korean peninsula.
Comrade Kim Jong Un, President of the State Affairs of the DPRK, pointed out in his speech at the celebration event on 27th of July held on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the victory in Fatherland Liberation War that the US which did our nation the gravest harm in its modern history still perseveres with dangerous hostile acts against our Republic, and it will only compel itself to put up with greater uneasiness and crises if the US continuously attempts to impair the image of our state and make a serious infringement of our security and fundamental interests.
We will, in the future too, wage vigorous struggle to wipe out the aggression and interference of the US imperialism and to safeguard peace and security on the Korean peninsula, in the region and of the world in close collaboration with the peace-loving forces of the world who aspire after justice and truth.
Availing ourselves of this opportunity, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all the friends of the world who rendered support and solidarity to the just cause of the Korean people and hope that you, would, with constant attention on the development of situation on the Korean peninsula, continue to support Korean people to safeguard dignity and sovereignty of the country.
