In 1971, a flick of a finger.When we pick up the telescope of history, we will find that the historical value of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea not only did not diminish with the passing of time, but after the baptism and accumulation of the years, it became clearer and more profound.
To commemorate the resistance to US aggression and aid Korea is not to continue the confrontation, but to absorb historical wisdom, to observe reality and think about the future with a developmental thinking and a long-term perspective.
In 2021, “Changjin Lake” hit the big screen and became a phenomenal film masterpiece. As the lead actor Wu Jing said: “This is the most’painful’ scene I have ever filmed since filming.” The touching “interspersed 7 companies” soldier in the movie is our cutest person; the story told by the movie, It was the great war to resist US aggression and aid Korea.
If the Centennial Journey of the Communist Party of China is a magnificent symphony, then the anti-US aggression and aid Korea is one of the heroic hymns.
In October 1950, the Chinese People’s Volunteers were powerful and arrogant. They crossed the Yalu River and fought side by side with the Korean people and the army. After two years and nine months of bloody battles, they won a great victory in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
Great victories illuminate the future-the heroes of the stars shine in the sky of history, and their names will always be etched in the hearts of the people.
The great victory shines through the annals of history-this is the manifesto of the Chinese people standing in the east of the world after they stand up, and an important milestone in the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
The great victory reveals the future-the historical footsteps of the Chinese nation towards a great rejuvenation are unstoppable!
In 1952, during the Battle of Shangganling, the commanders of the Chinese People’s Volunteers, supported by artillery fire, attacked the 537.7 plateau Beishan.
A four-hole remnant bridge stands in the middle of the river, with bullet holes on the steel beams, telling the story of the past. The broken bridge that was bombed has become a memory coordinate of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
On October 19, 1950, with the great trust of the motherland and the people, the Chinese People’s Volunteers crossed the Yalu River.
“There is no singing, no flowers, everything is going on in the dark.” Volunteer Army veteran Wu Songlin recalled, “There is only one thing in everyone’s heart: defend your home and the country!”
This is the battle of justice–
“Resist US aggression and aid Korea, defend our country and our country”-this is not only the fundamental reason for this war, but also the fundamental nature of this war.
In June 1950, when the Korean Civil War broke out, the United States gathered the so-called “United Nations forces” to carry out armed intervention and dispatched the Seventh Fleet of the Navy to invade the Taiwan Strait of China. After that, the aggressors crossed the 38th parallel, approached the Yalu River, and dispatched planes to bomb the northeast border of China, directly threatening the national security of New China.
At the beginning of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, all kinds of wastes were waiting for prosperity, and all kinds of industries were waiting to be promoted. The Chinese people were eager for peace and tranquility. However, the invaders imposed war on the Chinese people.
Do you want to fight this battle? This may be one of the most difficult decisions made by Chairman Mao Zedong in his life.
What courage and courage is needed to fight against the world’s number one power!
The mouth is dead and the teeth are cold, and the family is in danger. The founders of the Republic think twice.
Without this battle, the entire Northeast will be the frontline and there will be no peace;
Without this battle, the domestic environment for peaceful development cannot be guaranteed;
Without fighting this battle, “the Chinese people have stood up since then” is just empty talk.
“Should participate in the war, must participate in the war”-Mao Zedong’s final word!
“For peace, we have to fight!” said General Nan Qixiang, a volunteer veteran and former deputy commander of the Liaoning Provincial Military Region. History has proved that going abroad to fight against US aggression and aid Korea is a great strategic decision with great foresight and great significance and far-reaching significance.
This is a bloody battle-
“It is necessary to profoundly estimate various possible and inevitable difficulties, and be prepared to overcome these difficulties with a high degree of enthusiasm, courage, care and hard work.” In the order to form the volunteer army, Mao Zedong said The difficulties of this battle are fully estimated.
Yes, the difficulty is unprecedented.
In the Memorial Hall to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, a set of comparative figures is thought-provoking.
In 1950, American steel production was 87.72 million tons, ranking first in the world, while China only had more than 600,000 tons; the total output value of American industry and agriculture was 284.8 billion U.S. dollars, and China was only 57.48 billion yuan. Foreigners ridicule that China’s per capita steel output is not enough to make a chopper.
The invaders were armed to the teeth. In order to win the war, they used all the new weapons of the time except the atomic bomb, even including bacterial, biological and chemical weapons.
Why does China win?
The enemy is more steel and less gas, and we are less steel and more gas-Mao Zedong’s words are arrogant.
“We have one heart and one breath.” Volunteer Army veteran Jin Haifang once said, “This heart is the heart of defending the home and the country, and this tone is the spirit of defeating the American imperial ambition wolf!”
It is this heart and this tone that the enemy calls the “mysterious Eastern spirit”.
Seeking nothing but victory, and cherishing nothing for victory, the “loveliest person” is an iron warrior that the enemy will never understand.
The first battle was Liangshuidong, the fierce battle against Yunshan City, the battle against Qingchuan River, and the fierce battle against Changjin Lake. Five consecutive battles were carried out. Since then, a deep defense position like a copper wall and an iron wall has been built, and several offensive battles have been carried out to smash the “strand battle” and resist. “Bacteriological war”, bloody battle on Ganling…The volunteers gave full play to their own advantages, flexibly used various tactics, firmly grasped the initiative of the war, and created the miracle of defeating the strong by the weak again and again, and drove the invaders back to the 38th line. Hit the negotiating table and created a mighty and majestic victory.
Today, in the Shenyang Anti-US Aid Korea Martyrs Cemetery, there stands a 100-meter-long famous wall on which the names of more than 190,000 anti-US and aid Korean martyrs are engraved. It was they who paved the way to glorious victory with their blood and lives!
This is the battle to build a nation-
“This war is a battle to build a nation, and victory is world-class.” said Lu Chao, a researcher at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences. The victory in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea has fundamentally changed China’s backward and beaten position in the world for more than 100 years.
After this battle, New China won the dividend of peace and development for more than 70 years.
“More than one-third of the 156 key projects built during the First Five-Year Plan period are located in the Northeast.” said Li Kai, vice president of the China Northeast Revitalization Research Institute. Industrial system?
Today, China has become the world’s second largest economy, becoming the locomotive and ballast of the global economy. Today’s China should pay tribute to this great victory, which laid a solid foundation for peace.
After this battle, New China played out its national prestige and military prestige.
The Chinese people smashed the aggressor Chen Bingguomen’s attempt to strangle New China in the cradle, and New China has truly gained a firm foothold. This battle resulted in a safe and peaceful homeland, fully demonstrating the steel will of the Chinese people not to fear violence!
Dignity cannot be bought or requested.
Many American soldiers who had been to the Korean battlefield in those days deeply described in their memoirs the sound of the “heart-piercing” bugle of the Volunteer Army’s assault. These voices have accompanied them to the end of their military career. The aggressor admitted with frustration: The myth of the invincibility of the US military has been shattered. From then on, the international status of New China jumped.
After this battle, the whole world has re-understood the new China.
“The sleeping lion is awake.” Volunteer army veteran Ju Wanchang once said that the resistance to US aggression and aid to North Korea made the whole world see that China is willing to defend its core national interests with blood, and that China is a strong force against hegemony and defending peace.
Inspired by the banner of patriotism, the Chinese people share the same hatred and hatred, and work together, let the world witness the majestic power hidden in the Chinese people, and let the world know that “now the Chinese people are organized, it is not to be offended. If you provoke it. It’s not easy to handle”!
September 2nd, South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army salute soldiers escorted the coffins of volunteer martyrs aboard the PLA Air Force plane.
Spirit: the eternal power that travels through time and space
What goes by is time, what remains unchanged is spirit, what continues is strength.
The great spirit of the Great War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea forged, marked the spiritual elevation of the Chinese nation, and proved an unbreakable truth: the backbone of a person is not bones but soul; the backbone of an army is not weapons but spirit.
The great spirit of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea has been integrated into the blood of the Chinese nation. It has been passed down from generation to generation, and has become a source of strength for us to overcome all difficulties and obstacles.
——The spirit of patriotism that works hard for the dignity of the motherland and the nation.
In the winter of 1950, North Korea, by the Changjin Lake.
On a piece of frozen paper, there was an absolute letter from the volunteer soldier Song Amao——
“I love my relatives and my country, and I love my honor even more. I am a glorious volunteer soldier. Ice and snow, I will never succumb to you, even if it freezes to death, I will stand proudly on my ground… “
At the end of their lives, he and his comrades still maintained an ambush posture. This is the “Ice Sculpture Company” of the Volunteer Army.
“For the motherland, worth it!” Chang Zongxin, a volunteer veteran who participated in the Battle of Changjin Lake, had tears in his eyes. “It would be great if the sacrificed comrades could see China today!”
The interests of the motherland are above all else. How many heroic sons and daughters like the “Ice Sculpture Company” have left their lives and youth on the borders of foreign countries forever.
A bite of fried noodles is just a bite of snow. In the air-raid shelters on the Korean battlefield, there was such a dialogue.
“Don’t you feel bitter?” Facing a question from a field reporter, a volunteer soldier smiled and said: “How can you not feel that! Our revolutionary army is not a monster! I eat snow here, precisely for the sake of our motherland.” The people don’t eat snow.”
How simple, what a hot heart, this is our loveliest person! This is the great War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea!
——The spirit of revolutionary heroism that is brave and tenacious and sacrifices life and death.
2021 National Day, Shenyang, the Martyrs’ Cemetery to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
A bouquet of flowers and a model of a fighter plane are placed in front of the tomb of the martyr Yang Gensi, entrusting people’s admiration and yearning for this hero.
In the movie “The Sons and Daughters of Heroes,” the last cry of the volunteer soldier Wang Cheng “fire at me for victory!” has touched generations of Chinese people. Yang Gensi is one of Wang Cheng’s archetypes.
On November 29, 1950, at the Xiaokaolin position, 28-year-old Yang Gensi led a platoon that repelled eight successive attacks of the first US Marine Division, the elite of the US Army. Comrades around him fell one by one. In the end, Yang Gensi picked up the explosive kit, ignited the fuse, rushed to the enemy group, and died together with the enemy.
Recently, after watching the movie “Changjin Lake” collectively, the soldiers of the “Yang Gensi Army” shouted “Lianhun” in unison: “I don’t believe there are tasks that cannot be accomplished, I don’t believe there are difficulties that cannot be overcome, and I don’t believe there are enemies that cannot be defeated. !” This video jerked people to tears.
Charge bravely under the rain of guns and bullets, hold on to the position with indiscriminate bombing, use the chest to block the gunhole, use the body as a human ladder, pick up the explosive bag, hold the blasting tube and rush into the enemy group, endure the hunger and the cold, never shrink back, and burn the body. Staying still and daring to “fight with bayonet in the air”…On the Korean battlefield, volunteer soldiers used “less steel and more gas” to overcome “more steel and less gas”, composing a majestic epic of earth-shattering and weeping ghosts.
Every sacrifice is immortal. They are the most shining coordinates of the nation, worthy of being the heroic children of the Chinese nation, worthy of being the strong guardians of the security of the motherland and world peace, and worthy of the honorable title of “the cutest person”!
——The spirit of revolutionary optimism that is not afraid of hardships and hardships and always maintains a high morale.
“The Volunteer Army is not afraid of many difficulties, can withstand the cold and can withstand hunger. Four rollers on two legs, and over the mountains and rivers!” Many veterans of the Volunteer Army have been able to recite these few words so far, and their eyes are full. pride.
Optimism is because of self-confidence and bravery.
The 97-year-old Volunteer Army veteran Lu Pin will never forget the days and nights on the south bank of the Han River.
“It was a sea of fire, and the earth was trembling,” Lu Pin said. “The enemy poured tons of petrol bombs, and the petrol bombs splashed on people, and they couldn’t be extinguished.”
The veterans recalled that the shells of the US military were so dense that there was no gap, like a strong wind.
“Aircraft and artillery can’t frighten us!” Jin Pengling, a volunteer veteran, said with a smile, “The American devils are nothing great! When they were defeated, they couldn’t make an army, they ran faster than rabbits, and they held their hands together when they surrendered.”
The Memorial Hall to Resist US Aid Korea in Dandong is full of people every day. “Many young people feel the shock of their hearts after visiting.” Gong Shaoshan, deputy curator of the memorial hall, said that how those young people faced and overcome difficulties more than 70 years ago has eternal value of the times.
——The spirit of revolutionary loyalty to dedicate everything generously to fulfill the mission entrusted by the motherland and the people.
A piece of cotton-padded coat the size of a palm is the relic of the 26-year-old Qiu Shaoyun when he died, and it is near his chest.
Today, this fragment is treasured in a museum, and many viewers cried silently when they saw it.
Mission is more important than Mount Tai, and discipline is more important than life. In order to complete the tasks entrusted by the motherland and the people, the flesh and blood can also be turned into a fiery King Kong.
Sun Jingkun was also 26 years old when he crossed the Yalu River.
He is a first-class hero of the volunteer army. He has repeatedly made military exploits on the battlefield, but he hid his fame after the war. He took the initiative to return to Shancheng Village, Yuanbao District, Dandong City to become a farmer. As the production team leader, he led the villagers to repair dams and build fertile fields, and planted 130,000 pine and chestnut trees.
“Think of the sacrificed comrades on the battlefield. What qualifications do I have to choose?” As the winner of the “July 1st Medal”, 97-year-old Sun Jingkun said calmly, “I am a party member, and I can do whatever the party calls it. Don’t forget your roots.”
——The spirit of internationalism that strives for the cause of peace and justice for mankind.
On January 2, 1952, Ishida-ri, Seongcheon County, South Pyongan Province, North Korea.
Volunteer soldier Luo Shengjiao dived into the cold water three times and exhausted his last strength to rescue the North Korean child Cui Ying. He gave his precious life. That year, he just turned 21.
The North Korean people erected a wooden sign at the place where the Luo Shengjiao sacrificed, and it said: “The people who grew up on the Korean soil should always remember our friend Luo Shengjiao and learn from his great internationalist spirit.”
Volunteer soldiers like the Rashen religion fought side by side with the Korean people, defying the power to resist aggression, living together, living and dead, and condensed with blood to form a great fighting friendship, and set a glorious example of internationalism for the people of the world to fight for peace and justice.
For more than 70 years, standing on the right side of history has been China’s unchanging choice.
As the world enters a period of turbulent change, where does human society go?
Open rather than closed, cooperation rather than confrontation, and win-win rather than exclusiveness. China has clearly advocated the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind. It has pointed the way forward for the world, lighted up the light of hope, and won the appreciation and support of many countries.
Moving forward: Unstoppable pace of revival
In 1971, it was a flick of a finger. When we pick up the historical telescope, we will find that the historical value of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea not only did not diminish with the passing of time, but has become clearer and thicker through the baptism and accumulation of the years.
Whenever we move forward, we must not forget the time and road.
To commemorate the resistance to US aggression and aid to Korea is not to continue the confrontation, but to absorb historical wisdom, observe reality and think about the future with a developmental mindset and a long-term perspective.
-Justice must prevail, peace must prevail, war can be stopped only by daring to fight, and peace must be won by struggle.
“The era when Western invaders can occupy a country by setting up a few cannons on a coast in the east for hundreds of years is gone!” After the victory of the war, Peng Dehuai, commander of the Chinese People’s Volunteers, was full of pride.
Hit a punch to avoid a hundred punches.
Since then, no country has dared to attack China casually as it has in the more than one hundred years since the Opium War. This is like a brand, deeply in the minds of the leaders of the superpowers.
The Chinese people know very well that when dealing with aggressors, they have to talk to them in a language that they understand. This is to stop wars by war, stop war by force, win peace and win respect by victory. In the face of any difficulties and risks, the calf will not tremble, and the waist pole will not bend. The Chinese nation cannot be frightened or crushed!
The smoke of anti-US aggression and aid to Korea is long gone, but forgetting the war will be in danger.
——A hopeful nation cannot be without heroes, and a promising country cannot be without pioneers.
The red flag rolls up, bloody glory. The War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea was a great war that was won with heroism.
“I participated in the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the War of Liberation, and I am most proud of the Korean War of Resistance against U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea, which confronted the world’s number one enemy,” Lu Pin said. “This war has made the enemy remember that the Chinese people have hard bones!”
Some people say that the Chinese are always very well protected by the bravest of them.
On the Korean battlefield, more than 300,000 heroes and models, including Yang Gensi, Huang Jiguang, and Qiu Shaoyun, and nearly 6,000 collectives of heroes emerged. They have played out the blood and soul of the Chinese soldiers, they are the backbone and pride of the Chinese nation.
Only by advocating heroes can heroes be produced, and heroes can be produced by striving to be heroes.
From the war epidemic to the flood fight, how many people went retrograde to save lives. They are the loveliest people in the new era, they are the heroic sons and daughters of the new era.
——The people are our strongest support, the courage and confidence to overcome all difficulties and obstacles.
“I want people to give to people, things for things, blood for blood, what I want, what I want to give as much”-Dandong, which is separated from North Korea by a river, has devoted everything to support the front line without reservation. More than 1,900 young people in Jintang and Yuanbao districts donated 580,000 milliliters of blood to the volunteers.
One more grain, one more part, one more cotton yarn… All for the front line, a vigorous anti-US aggression movement was set off across the country. How many young people enthusiastically joined the army, how many medical workers went to the battlefield, donations from all walks of life can buy 3,700 planes.
Ning Dianyun, a veteran of the Volunteer Army, treasures a letter from the “Red Scarf Girl”.
“At that time, we were in a dark and damp tunnel where the sun was not visible,” Ning Dianyun said. “Comrades-in-arms circulated this letter of condolences from the motherland over and over again. Every time we read it, a warm current flows into my heart, adding infinite courage! “
——The world is the world of the people of all countries. The difficulties and challenges facing the world require people from all countries to work together and cope with them. Peaceful development and win-win cooperation are the right way in the world.
Today, mankind is faced with a rare epidemic test, the world is undergoing major changes unseen in a century, and China is facing more complex and severe challenges.
More than 70 years ago, the newly born People’s Republic was able to defeat the world’s number one power with a fearless spirit. More than 70 years later, China is more able to calmly deal with and overcome any risks and challenges, without fear of all the storms and seas, and march forward courageously toward the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
The Chinese people do not believe in evil, nor are they afraid of evil, nor cause trouble or fear. This was the case back then, today is the case, and it will be the same in the future.
The Chinese people love peace and will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development. Today’s world must abandon all forms of Cold War mentality, and unity and cooperation is the right way in the world.
From history to the future, from victory to victory. China has embarked on a new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way and marching towards the second centenary goal. The Chinese people are confident and full of pride.
When you get on the first tram to the factory in the morning, when you carry the rake and go to the fields, when you take a leisurely walk with your lover, do you realize that you are in happiness?
Please love our soldiers deeply, they are indeed our loveliest people!
Majestic and arrogant, crossing the Yalu River…
The great spirit of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea has been written in the history of the Chinese nation, in the history of defending world peace, and will continue to be written in the new great journey!■Return to Sohu to see more
