North Korea celebrates victory in "Fatherland Liberation War"

(North) Korean News currently has a number of articles on that great victory. It was all due to that mental power we keep hearing about:
"Standoff with the invader is standoff of mental power."

This is the philosophy which the Fatherland Liberation War in the 1950s left in the world history of wars.

No one imagined the young DPRK would emerge the victor in the Fatherland Liberation War. The war, however, showed clearly that the outcome of a war depended not on the size of a territory and its population and economic and military potentials but on the mental power of the army and the people.

The Korean War was the biggest war in history after the two world wars.

The U.S. imperialists committed atrocities which would make even the beasts blush wherever they went. They did not think twice about starting a germ warfare. They dropped an average of 18 bombs per square kilometer on the DPRK, leveling its cities and villages with the ground . . .
Still, however, the "U.S. Imperialists" experienced massive losses:
During the three-year long war, the U.S. imperialists lost nearly 1.57 million troops including more than 405,000 GIs and enormous amount of military and technical equipment and war supplies including over 12,200 aircraft and knelt down before the Korean people.
We also learn that "Workers in the rear made hand grenades with bare hands and ensured wartime production by turning wheels with hands." Similar efforts resulted in the latest editions of Haveil Havalim and Carnival of the Insanities.
