Korean people’s victory makes a breach in US’ attempt to realize its strategy of world supremacyJuly 22, 2023
The world history of war knows many big and small wars, including not a few wars of world-historic significance.
Among them the Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people is of incomparable significance. In the war the DPRK, small in territory and population, and its army, which was only two years old, defeated the US imperialist aggressors, a formidable enemy, for the first time in history, making a great contribution to preserving global peace and stability.
The fledgling DPRK beat the US, the tyrannical chieftain of imperialism, in the war, thus leaving a dramatic impact and impression in the 20th century called a “century of war".
The most important world-historic significance of the Korean people’s victory in the war lies in the fact that they safeguarded peace and security of humankind by foiling the US imperialists’ attempt to realize its strategy of world supremacy, aimed at gaining control of the Asian continent and the rest of the world after the Second World War, and preventing a new world war.
Their victory in the war was a remarkable event that thwarted at the outset the US scheme to implement its aggression policy toward Asia and strategy of world supremacy and start a nuclear war.
The main targets of the US’ strategy for world supremacy numbered three: the first was to hold control of its allies that seriously weakened in the world war politically, economically and militarily; the second was to strangle socialist countries by unleashing a war against them after restructuring the weakened capitalist world; and the third was to prevent the colonial system from collapsing by suppressing the national-liberation movement in colonies by force of arms.
To that end, the US focused on the policy of aggression toward Asia because at that time the region became the main front of anti-imperialist struggle, the main theatre of anti-imperialist revolutionary movement, as revolutionary forces sharply increased there.
It judged that it might lose Europe as well as Asia unless it extinguished the flames of revolution spreading across the Asian continent.
Therefore, the Korea policy whose ultimate goal is to dominate the whole of Korea became the core of the US policy of attaching importance to the Far East, its policy of aggression toward Asia.
It was the strategic position of the Korean peninsula understood by American policymakers that the US had to occupy the DPRK in order to open the road of advance into Asia in the Far East and only then could it take the first step to realize its strategy of world supremacy.
A January 21 1950 issue of American newspaper The Oregon Journal hinted at the strategic importance of the DPRK, saying that the Korean peninsula, the protrusion of the Asian continent, constitutes the bridgehead for almost all activities on the Pacific.
With the clarification of the strategic importance of the DPRK, the US confirmed the policy of aggression against the country and tried to take the first step there to realize their ambition of world supremacy.
MacArthur, who was in direct charge of the implementation of the US policy of aggression against the DPRK after the Second World War, said that in the military point of view Japan was a “future springboard” and Korea was appropriate as the bridge to the continent, adding that if they occupied the whole of Korea, they would be able to cut to pieces the only supply line between Soviet Siberia and the southern regions and ... dominate the whole regions between Vladivostok and Singapore.
The war for conquering the DPRK was decisive to the US’ implementation of its foreign policy.
But the Americans were mistaken.
The DPRK was not a weak country as they had thought.
Its unprecedentedly strong counterattack humbled the US. The peerlessly heroic self-sacrificing spirit and popular heroism displayed by the Korean people, who were ready to die to defend the sovereignty and dignity of their country, shattered before the world the myth about the "mightiness" of the United States of America which was said to have suffered no defeat and made it suffer an ignominious defeat for the first time in its history.
The Korean people won the great victory in the Fatherland Liberation War, thus frustrating the US’ wild ambition to occupy the DPRK and Asia and dominate the world.
It brought about the beginning of a downhill turn for the US imperialists, who had boasted of being the “strongest in the world”.
