Nepal People's War on the Strategic Offensive

The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) has declared that the People's War it has been leading since 1996 has entered the stage of the strategic offensive, when the balance of power in the country has shifted decisively against the old regime and the revolutionary forces are moving towards the country-wide seizure of power. This article looks at the dynamics behind these developments and at the challenges looming immediately before the Nepalese detachment of the world proletariat - including the threat of US-imperialist backed Indian intervention.

Afghanistan Maoists Unite in a Single Party

At a time when the US imperialists are stepping up their military aggression against the peoples of the world and setting up puppet regimes in the name of democracy, the determination of the world's revolutionaries to step up their own efforts to overthrow imperialism and usher in a new stage in human history, communism, was signalled by the strengthening of the proletarian vanguard with the formation of the Communist Party of Afghanistan (Maoist), right in the heart of one of the US's most recent conquests.

Lessons for Revolutionaries from the Iraq War

The war in Iraq can be divided roughly into two phases: first, the US invasion and war against Saddam Hussein's regime, which ended in the complete defeat of the Iraqi army and Bush's declaration of victory (Mission Accomplished)on 1 May 2003, and second, the guerrilla war against the occupation, which broke out in Falluja on that same date, and has continued gathering strength ever since. The first of two articles, written shortly after the first phase, examines the imperialists' real military strengths, as well as the Achilles' heel on which these strengths are founded, while the second applies this analysis to later developments.
