Comrades and friends!
The Chinese nation is a peace loving nation, and the Chinese people are peace loving people. Since modern times, the Chinese people have suffered from the invasion of foreign powers and the ravages of war. They have a deep understanding of the cruelty of war and the value of peace. At the beginning of the founding of the peoples Republic of China, there were a lot of things to be done. The Chinese people longed for peace and tranquility. However, this wish of the Chinese people was severely challenged, and the imperialist aggressors imposed war on the Chinese people.
On June 25, 1950, the Korean civil war broke out. Based on its global strategy and cold war thinking, the U.S. government decided to intervene in the Korean civil war and sent the seventh fleet to invade the Taiwan Strait. In early October 1950, in spite of the repeated warnings of the Chinese government, the US military boldly crossed the 38th line and burned the war to the Sino Korean border. The U.S. planes that invaded North Korea repeatedly bombed the northeast border area of China, causing serious losses to peoples lives and property, and Chinas security is facing a serious threat.
At this critical juncture, at the request of the Korean party and government, the Chinese party and government made a historic decision to resist U.S. aggression and aid Korea and protect the country with extraordinary courage and courage. On October 19, 1950, the Chinese peoples Volunteer Army, led by commander Peng Dehuai and political commissar, entered the Korean battlefield. This is an act of justice with the teacher of justice.
The war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea is a modern war under the condition of extremely great disparity between the two belligerents. At that time, there was a huge difference in national strength between China and the United States. In such an extremely asymmetric and difficult situation, the Chinese peoples Volunteer Army cooperated closely with the Korean army and the people. They fought in liangshuidong, Yunshan City, Qingchuan River and Changjin lake for five consecutive battles. Since then, they have built up an iron wall like defense array in depth and carried out many offensive campaigns, smashing the strangulation battle, resisting the bacterial war and bloody battle in Shangganling And created a majestic war. The people of all ethnic groups in China sincerely praise the officers and men of the volunteer army as the most lovely people! After arduous fighting, the Chinese and Korean troops defeated their opponents armed to the teeth, broke the myth of the invincibility of the US Army, and forced the invincible aggressors to sign the armistice agreement on July 27, 1953.
During the war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, the CPC Central Committee took the overall situation as a whole, carried out powerful war mobilization and correct war guidance, adopted the principle of fighting, stabilizing and building at the same time, and carried out a magnificent campaign of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea. The people of all ethnic groups in the country supported this great struggle concerning the future and destiny of the country and the nation, and finally declared to the world with a great victory that how many Western invaders are there? In the past hundred years, as long as a few cannons were set up on one of the eastern coasts, the era of occupying a country was gone forever !
After this war, the Chinese people smashed the aggressor Chen Bings country and then strangled the new China in the cradle. It can be said that one punch will open, so as to avoid a hundred fists. Imperialists no longer dare to make an attempt to invade new China by force, and new China has really established its foothold. This war has brought peace to the country and mountains, and fully demonstrated the iron and steel will of the Chinese people who are not afraid of violence!
After this war, the Chinese people have thoroughly removed the century old humiliation of being manipulated and looked up to by others since modern times. They have completely thrown away the hat of sick man of East Asia. The Chinese people are really elated. This war has played out the spirit of the Chinese people and fully demonstrated the indomitable character of the Chinese people of one mind!
After this war, the Chinese people defeated the aggressors, shocked the whole world, established the important position of new China in Asian and international affairs, and demonstrated the great power status of new China. This war has made the whole world look at China with new eyes and fully demonstrated the firm determination of the Chinese people to maintain world peace!
After this war, the peoples army learned from the war, became braver and stronger as it fought, gained important military experience, realized the transformation from a single service to a combined army of various services and arms, and greatly promoted the modernization of national defense and the army. In this war, the combat effectiveness of the peoples army has shocked the world and fully demonstrated the bloody iron bone of daring to fight and win!
After the Second World War, the strategic pattern of Asia and even the world was profoundly shaped after the end of the Second World War. The just cause of the oppressed nations and people to strive for national independence and peoples liberation was greatly encouraged, which greatly promoted the cause of world peace and human progress. It tells the world with iron facts that no matter how powerful any country or army is, if it stands on the opposite side of the world trend of development, bullys the weak, goes against the trend, invades and expands, it will inevitably be hit by a head and a leg. This war once again proves that justice must defeat power, and peaceful development is an irresistible historical trend!
Comrades and friends!
In the magnificent war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, the heroic Chinese peoples Volunteer Army has always carried forward the patriotic spirit that the interests of the motherland and the people are higher than everything else, and are desperate for the dignity of the motherland and the nation, the heroic and indomitable revolutionary heroism spirit, the revolutionary optimism spirit of fearing difficulties and hardships, and always maintaining high morale The great spirit of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea has been forged by the mission of giving, the revolutionary loyalty spirit of generously giving everything, and the internationalism spirit of fighting for human peace and justice.
u2014u2014No matter how the times develop, we must forge the national character of fearing violence and resisting power. Seventy years ago, imperialist invaders set fire to the door of new China. The Chinese people are well aware that to treat the aggressors, they must have a dialogue with them in a language they understand. This is to stop the war with war, stop the war with force, and win peace and respect with victory. In the face of any difficulties and risks, the Chinese people will not shake their legs and stomach, and their waists will not bend. The Chinese nation will not be frightened or crushed!
u2014u2014No matter how the times develop, we must gather the national strength of unity and unity. In the war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, the Chinese people, inspired by the banner of patriotism, made concerted efforts to let the world witness the tremendous power contained in the Chinese people, and let the world know that now that the Chinese people have been organized, it is not to be provoked.. If you get upset, its not easy to do !
u2014u2014No matter how the times develop, we must forge the national blood spirit of giving up life and forgetting death. In the Korean battlefield, the officers and soldiers of the volunteer army faced with powerful and fierce opponents and in a harsh and cruel battlefield environment. They threw their heads and shed blood, and conquered more steel and less gas with more steel and less gas, and composed a magnificent epic that shocked the world and wept ghosts and gods. The soldiers of the volunteer army bravely charged against the barrage of bullets, stood firm against the heavy bombardment, blocked the hole of the gun with his chest, used his body as a ladder, and rushed into the enemy group with the explosive package and the blasting barrel in his hand. He did not shrink back from hunger and cold, and was still in the fire, and dared to fight bayonets in the air. Among them, there are more than 300000 heroic meritorious officials, including Yang Gensi, Huang Jiguang, Qiu Shaoyun, and nearly 6000 meritorious officials. Heroes said: behind us is the motherland, for the sake of the peace of the people of the motherland, we can not step back! This kind of bloodiness makes the enemy cold and moves the world!
u2014u2014No matter how the times develop, we must stimulate the national wisdom of keeping the integrity, innovating and advancing bravely. Those who are brave in innovation will advance and those who are good at creating will win. In the face of unfamiliar battlefields and enemies, the officers and men of the volunteer army insisted on you hit your, I hit mine, you hit the atomic bomb, I hit the grenade, and gave full play to the flexible mobile strategy and tactics. In the face of risks and challenges from all walks of life and various resistance pressures, the Chinese people have always been able to build bridges and bridges in the face of mountains and rivers. They have always shown great wisdom and courage, and are determined to forge ahead, so as to carve out a bloody road!

The world is a world for people of all countries. The difficulties and challenges facing the world need people of all countries to work together in the same boat. Peaceful development and win-win cooperation are the right path for the world. In todays world, any unilateralism, protectionism, and extreme egoism cant work at all! Any means of blackmail, blockade and extreme pressure will not work at all! Any act of self-reliance and self-respect, and any act of hegemony, hegemony, and bullying, will not work at all! Its not only impossible, but also a dead end!
