The DPRK has made a victorious advance, breaking through difficulties lying in chronicles in the great spirit of the times.Songun metaphor alert!
This is eloquently illustrated by the Kanggye spirit that kindled the flames of a new great revolutionary upsurge in the DPRK when its people had to make an "Arduous March" and a forced march previously unknown due to natural disasters that hit it for several consecutive years and the U.S. imperialists' moves to isolate and stifle it.
