A Long Term Strategy for the Antiwar Movement
NO WAR FOR EMPIRE
A Long Term Strategy for the Antiwar Movement
By Sebastian Robles
“America has no empire to extend …”
-George W. Bush, June 2002
“[America] has no territorial ambitions. We don't seek an empire.” -George W. Bush, November 2002
US President George W. Bush’s assurances notwithstanding, the global antiwar movement has managed to delay the US’ imperial plans to attack and occupy Iraq for over a year and widened the differences among various imperialist countries, a major tactical victory. Now the question is how to keep this tactical victory from being co-opted by imperialist rivalries and thus transformed into defeat, and how to advance to the real solution to war, poverty, desperation, terrorism ...How to secure the strategic victory of workers and youth.
It is no secret that the US was ready to move into the Middle East immediately after the end of the bombing campaign on Afghanistan more than a year ago. All circumstances were favorable for the US ruling class and the Bush administration to go to the second stage of its global offensive against the world: they had broad support at home, including almost unanimous support in Congress, a reactionary conjuncture imposed upon the country after September 11, and the military means to do the job. However, US interests in the Middle East clash with those of France, Germany, Russia and China. A huge international antiwar movement poured through this crack between the world’s main imperial powers and threw a monkey wrench into Bush’s war drive, slowing down the military offensive and, in turn, worsening the inter-imperialist contradictions between the US and Europe.
