Edited and Translated by Chen Lidan, People's Daily Online

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a ceremony on Wednesday to mark the 80th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army (KPA) and a senior military official claimed that KPA’s weapons can defeat the United States.

KPA Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un, also first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defense Commission was present at the ceremony in Pyongyang.

Addressing the meeting, Ri Yong Ho, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, said the founding of the KPA by commander Kim Il Sung 80 years ago ushered in a new history of building the revolutionary armed forces. He said leader Kim Jong Il strengthened the KPA and made the DPRK a world-level military power.

Ri stressed that KPA has owned powerful and modern weapons capable of defeating the United States.

Kim Jong Un, "a brilliant commander of Songun (military-first)," would strengthen the might of the KPA and lead the Korean revolution to a new victory, Ri said.

Ri also warned South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, saying anyone who provokes or hurts the DPRK's dignity would be undoubtedly defeated.

He called on DPRK soldiers to "defend with their lives the Party Central Committee headed by Great Comrade Kim Jong Un" and fulfill their duty in the struggle for national reunification and in the revolutionary cause of Juche.

As Chairman Mao noted, ultimately it"s people and not weapons that would be decisive. Imperialism and their proxies often look formidable, but it"s all on the surface and so long as the world"s people conduct ceaseless attacks on it, it WILL be defeated. But for that to happen, China must be rejuvenated with the revolutionary fervor of its Founding Fathers and stop being running dogs of the imperialists.
