February 7, Juche 96
Marshal KIM JONG IL,
On behalf of the Songun Politics Study Group (USA) and the US Solidarity Committee to Support the AINDF and the South Korean People's Struggle, please allow me to congratulate you on receiving the International KIM IL SUNG prize per the unanimous decision of a meeting of the International Institute of the Juche Idea and absolute support of all the world's Juche and Songun study organizations, including the US Songun group.
More than anyone, you are most like the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG. We treat you with the benevolent worship you have shown through your own devotion to the cause of the great leader. When dogmatic Marxism-Leninism came to ruin in a number of places, you ever-intensified the line of Juche as espoused by the great leader during his temporal existence, relied upon the traditions of the WPK,and defended the meaning of the great leader's new original standpoint of the revolution which centered on humankind.
You alone are the preeminent statesman and theorist of the cause of the era of independence. On the occasion of the upcoming 65th anniversary of your birth, it is only fair that you should be the winner of this sought out trophy of grandeur.
Many victories ahead for you Marshal KIM JONG IL under the banner of Juche idea and Songun politics, upholding forever the cause of the great leader!
With feelings of deep filial devotion,
John Paul Cupp, Chairman of the Songun Politics Study Group (USA) and the US Solidarity Committee to Support the AINDF and the South Korean People's Struggle, editorial board of the Red Banner of Songun international e-journal
