Today it is ranked as the fifth-largest military force in the world. To many outsiders this emphasis on the military at the cost of social and economic stability is both puzzling and foolhardy. It is neither. It is important to understand the critical role of the military within DPRK society. The entire nation is built around the KPA. It is more than a military organisation, it is the nation’s largest employer, purchaser and consumer. The vast majority of the DPRK’s industrial infrastructure and its distribution system is centred upon military production and support.

It can achieve this by drawing upon the support and superior indoctrination of its people. Over many recent years, our people waded through many adversities and had no choice but to proceed with the arduous march. However, the sure victory of conviction of our people has become firmer, and the power of our republic has been reinforced incomparably. It is a fantasy of the US imperialist aggressors to use our difficult situation to obliterate us militarily. 34 Due to continuing domestic economic and food crises the DPRK is judged to be at a heightened danger of economic and possibly social collapse than it has ever been.

These operations will be targeted against air bases, C3I facilities, logistics installations, ports and critical lines of communications. The KPN’s primary wartime missions include the insertion of special operations forces (especially the navy sniper brigades) and KPA ground forces on islands and along the ROK coasts to facilitate the encirclement of ROK/US ground forces, restricting US reinforcements by conducting anti-ship attacks, covert mining of ROK ports and sea approaches, and defending advancing KPA forces and the DPRK’s coasts from ROK and US naval activity.
