ON THE CAUCASUS WAR
Recent events in the Caucasus and questions posed by the war between
First of all we must be conscious of
the reactionary and imperialist nature of this war. This is a war for the distribution
of influence zones and the resources (the oil reserve of the Caspian Sea, the
second ones after

North-American imperialism uses its military, politic and economic weight in the struggle for the sharing of the zone in its favor. It wants to affirm its domination in the region, reinforce its military presence and maintain its world supremacy by weakening its imperialist competitors which depends on the oil and the gas.
The free way to the Georgian
offensive, is in fact one more act of the “infinite war”, after the
As for Putin and Medvedev, after
having economically reinforced themselves, they try to break the barrier raised
by their competitors, reestablishing their influence on the energetic resources
from which they had been expelled. Without any doubts, with the military
We are witnessing an inter-imperialist conflict, independently on who has initiated the armed aggression (in this case the Georgian marionette Saakashvili); the roots of this conflict have their origin in the politic followed by the great foreign powers since the collapse of the soviet revisionism until now.
The theories from who defends the
purely “defensive” nature of the Russian imperialism in order to safeguard its
threatened interests in its borders are wrong. This is a position which is
typical from the opportunists. The “defensive” nature of the Russian military
action is not what Lenin indicated, because
At the same time it is necessary to remind that between the USA and the others foreign powers like Russia, Germany, France, Japan, China, Italy, etc, are differences of strength, of military capacity, of political positions, etc, etc, but not of quality. They are no countries “less imperialists” tan others.
The conflict in the Caucasus is comprehended into the tendency of the imperialist war, of the new distribution of the world, that characterize the last decades as the consequence of the imbalance created by the collapse of the revisionist USSR.
In order to get out of the economic
and financial crisis, which is getting deeper, the imperialism resorts more and
more frequently to war. At the same time, the conflict in the
The second aspect that must be
underlined, is the question of the auto determination of the nations that have
nothing to see with the real motivation of the war, which is a war of the
oppressors of the most of the nations in the world for the reinforcement and extension of their
oppression. The bourgeoisie is trying to hide its eagerness for pillage with
lies about the “liberty and the national independence” of this or that nation.
What they really want is to oppress the nationality and not to liberate it. The
The imperialism is oppression for the peoples that suffer also the political tyranny of the corrupt regimes that governs them. The peoples of the region are all victims of the imperialist domination that suffocates them, their liberty, their sovereignty, their culture and their right for life and peace.
To recognize the right for the auto determination of the peoples of Abjazia and South Ossetia, is fair; but no political support can be given, from a communist and internationalist point of view, to the national bourgeoisies that want to take refuge under the “protective” shelter of Putin’s Russia, who cynically pretend to tutelary the army and the peoples.
In this case, this is not about a
fight for conquering the national independence from al the imperialist states.
If it would be like that, we communists should give them all our political
support; but today, any nationality from the Caucasus that choose to take
shelter into any of these imperialist powers fighting against the others, will
be dependent of this power and become a protectorate, as in the case of Kosovo.
At the same time we have to unmask the positions in favor of the “territorial

We call for mobilization! We must not allow our country to be an accessory of the raise to a war which is opposite to the interests of workers and peoples! We refuse to pay the price of the military adventure of the bourgeoisie!
Stop the “infinite war” for oil!
Let’s conquer a better society, without exploitation, misery nor oppression and pillage wars! For socialism!
