The ‘War Party’ Wins the Midterm Elections, Accelerating the Transition to a Multipolar World Order

FEDERICO PIERACINI—The midterms were what Washington’s allies and enemies had been waiting for in order to understand the direction of US foreign policy in the next few years. The election results present allies and enemies with an even more divided and chaotic United States, suggesting that it is time for them to stop waiting for Washington.

Remembering Russia’s Black October

October 3-4 marks the anniversary of the heroic uprising against Boris Yeltsin’s imperialist-backed attack on the Supreme Soviet in Moscow. The uprising’s defeat represented the final overturn of socialist relations and the restoration of capitalism in the USSR. Several years of counter-revolutionary developments within and without had seriously demoralized the Soviet working class.
