All People Are Soldiers, Whole Country Is Front
Party and working people's organizations, the Worker-Peasant Red Army and the Young Red Guards across the DPRK are ready for decisive battle.
◇ Emergency Meetings of Party And Working People's Organizations
Emergency consultative meetings of Party and working people's organizations took place across the country right after the publication of the statement of a spokesman for the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army.
Party organizations in all fields discussed on making the officials and other party members and working people fully ready for a war in the prevailing situation.
According to decisions of the emergency meetings, the Party and working people’s organizations in all areas went into combat posture all at once.
◇ Petition to Be Allowed to Join or Rejoin Army
All people who can take rifle are petitioning to be allowed to join or rejoin the People’s Army in all provinces and towns.
A war veteran in an advanced age of 80 says:
"I am still keeping a bullet that I failed to fire at a trench in the 1950s because the U.S. imperialists and their stooges signed an armistice agreement.
Instead of learning a lesson from their miserable defeat, they are trying to trigger off a war. It is really ridiculous.
Send me to the trench. Give me a rifle. I want to rain bullets on the enemy to my heart's content."
Not only the war veteran, but all other people stand at the trench as soldiers.
◇ Worker-Peasant Red Guards Took Position
All workers, peasants, intellectuals and students in worthwhile workplaces and schools are burning their hearts with determinations to annihilate the enemies.
Many of them took combat positions, holding rifles in place of hammers or sickles or pens.
"We can crush down the U.S. imperialist aggressors at a stroke only with the strength of the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the Young Red Guards.
Always ready to trigger, we are waiting for an order.
It is high time we, Worker-Peasant Red Guards and Young Red Guards demonstrated our combat power we have prepared with a hammer or sickle or pen in one hand and a rifle in the other."
◇ Shouts for Revenge
Kim Tok Gyo, worker of the first compound workshop of Hungnam Fertilizer Complex says:
"War is showdown of mental power rather than showdown of guns.
No force can match the mental power of Songun Korea which is united as one around the respected Marshal Kim Jong Un."
Kim Kum Sun, member of the Ryongdae Coop Farm says:
"We do not fear any violent gale. We have the respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, peerless heaven-born illustrious commander. We will also defend the coop farm fields with rifles in hand. We will join our husbands to defend our village and our farm."
It is the voice of all the Korean people.
