North Korea Marks Nuclear Anniversary and Kim Jong Il is published…in Syria

Posted by K.E. White on October 9, 2007

From the Associated Press:

“Never forgettable are acclamations of October, 2006, when we shouted hurrah again and again at the top of our voices in admiration of General Kim Jong Il who unfolded an eternally clear sky of peace, prosperity and hope above the heads of the 70 million people,” the state-controlled paper said, referring to both North and South Koreans.

The nuclear test was a “truly great miracle,” the paper said, sending the North “soaring as a powerful and great nation” at a time of hardship.

The country is believed to have conducted the underground test explosion at an unknown location in its northeast. The size of the blast was relatively small, with the U.S. government estimating its yield at less than a kiloton. Each kiloton is equal to the force produced by 1,000 tons of TNT.

And, just in case you were interested, Kim Jong Il is now an internationally published author:

Kim Jong Il’s famous work “The Workers’ Party of Korea Organizes and Guides All the Victories of Our People” was brought out in booklet by the Dar Damascus Publishing House of Syria on October 1.

This work, published on October 3, Juche 79 (1990), expounds the idea that the leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea is the decisive guarantee for the victory of the cause of socialism and the issue of developing the WPK into the Juche-type revolutionary party and fundamental ways to carry out the mission and duty of the party as the leading political organization.
