Notes on inter-imperialist contradiction

Sometimes it is quite amusing when your assesments were proven correct by the enemies hill. Regarding our most recent writings on the relationsship between Yankee and Russian imperialism, Biden did so in a speech to the staff at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Tuesday last week, saying:

“Putin has a real problem … He’s sitting on top of an economy that has nuclear weapons and oil wells and nothing else. Nothing else. Their economy is, what?, the eighth smallest in the world now, largest in the world? He knows he’s in real trouble …”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov later on acknowledged this under duress but tried in a pathetic way to sweep the issue under the rug, stating piteously: “Claiming that there is nothing else in Russia is wrong … This is incorrect knowledge and a misunderstanding of modern Russia.” To say nothing more is equivalent to an admission. We are quite pleased that this issue has now been publicly conceded even at the level of the highest representatives of the respective imperialisms.

But there is something more serious Biden said on the solemn event: “I think it’s more likely we’re going to end up — well, if we end up in a war, a real shooting war with a major power, it’s going to be as a consequence of a cyber breach of great consequence. And it’s increasing exponentially — the capabilities.” He even went so far as to accuse Russia for “a clear violation of our sovereignty”.

Biden also issued that there is also a growing threat from China. Biden said Chinese President Xi Jinping was dead serious about becoming the world’s most powerful military power and the world’s largest and most significant economy until the mid 2040ies.

The same issue was handled in Germany were bourgeois press stated regarding China it is not about solving of factual problems in different policy areas, but an explicit struggle for world-dominance. And they admonished: This struggle for power can also be lost.

This reinforces once again that there is no peace and quiet but a real possibility of an inter-imperialist war and a third world war at hand. We must not fear it but be prepared for it. We highlight: Either revolution prevents the world war or the world war leads to revolution. That is, to prepare and develop the people’s war to make revolution and, if necessary, to oppose the world people’s war to the imperialist world war.
