A Pyongyang city rally was held at Kim Il Sung Square Monday to denounce the United Nations Security Council's "resolution on sanctions" cooked up at the instigation of the U.S. imperialists.I'd say that's a clenched fist.
Attending the rally were senior party, army and state officials, the chairman of a friendly party, leading officials of the party, armed forces and power organs, working people's organizations, ministries and national institutions, servicepersons, youth and students and people from all walks of life, more than 100,000 in all.
Kim Ki Nam, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, in a speech said that the UNSC finally adopted an anti-DPRK "resolution on sanctions" at the instigation of the U.S. over the DPRK's second nuclear test, another grave provocation. This is, in essence, a wicked pressure offensive launched by the U.S. imperialists to disarm the DPRK, strangle its economy and undermine its ideology and system, he held, adding:
The UNSC's "resolution on sanctions" is an intolerable mockery of the dignity of the Korean people and an arrogant criminal act of wantonly violating its sovereignty.
The DPRK has so far done what it should do despite the ceaseless "sanctions" on the part of the imperialist allied forces. These "sanctions" prompted it to augment its national power, far from "weakening" it. This clearly proves that no enemy's anti-DPRK "sanctions" racket is workable and it is ridiculous and foolish for the U.S. to try to bring down the DPRK through "sanctions."
The hostile forces will sustain a bitterer setback and defeat if they persist in the moves for putting sanctions upon the DPRK and stifling it, misjudging the tough stand taken by the army and the people of the DPRK as "brinkmanship."
No matter how desperately the U.S. imperialists and other hostile forces may work to isolate and blockade the DPRK, a full-fledged nuclear weapons state, it will remain unfazed. In case the enemies foolishly attempt to blockade the DPRK it will respond to it with resolute and deadly blows, considering it as a war action.
The DPRK will steadily advance along the path of independence chosen by itself and will win a final victory in the confrontation with the U.S. whether it has flanks or not and whether it receives international aid or not.
Pak Jae Gyong, vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces who spoke on behalf of the Korean People's Army, vehemently denounced the UNSC "resolution" as a serious provocation, a wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK and its people.
He warned that the KPA will mercilessly frustrate any attempt to check, inspect, examine and blockade any ship and object for which the sovereignty of the DPRK is exercised with powerful military retaliatory blows.
Under the present situation where the KPA is technically at war with the U.S. imperialists as the Armistice Agreement has lost its legal binding force the KPA will promptly exercise the right to preemptive strike to beat back the enemies' slightest provocation. It will deal telling blows at the vital parts of the U.S. and wipe out all its imperialist aggressor troops no matter where they are in the world.
The Japanese militarists and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors and other lackeys of the U.S. imperialists should stop running wild, well aware that they will never be able to escape a stern punishment by the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK if they keep going reckless. [...]
