About this title


Written in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War (1991).

Revolutionaries, especially Maoist revolutionaries, are famous for the view that "the power of the people is greater than the Man's technology." That was the spirit that marked the '60s in particular - with th estruggle of the Vietnamese people being an important and inspiring example. But the U.S. war against Iraq in 1991, with its massive "high tech" deployment, as posed new challenges to this view. How could a revolutionary army hope to defeat the modern imperialist powers? In this interview, Bob Avakian explores this question, and concludes: the power of the people is still greater than the Man's technology. But he argues that to make it so requires combining the decisive thing - the revolutionary energy of the masses - with a scientific doctrine and strategy for people's war. With that combination, he concludes, once the necessary conditions emerge, a people's war could have a real chance for success - even in a country like the U.S.

This interview further develops the thesis in an earlier work by Bob Avakian, "Could We Really Win? The Possibility of Revolutionary War." It does so through a serious examination of the military strengths and weaknesses demonstrated by the imperialist side in the Gulf War - comparing and contrasting their forces and way of fighting to the potential strengths of the people.
