Howie Hawkins on War & Peace

Green Challenger

 


Endless war follows from capitalist competition

ENDLESS WAR: We will never have a secure peace as long as capitalism's competitive economic structure generates international conflicts and wars. Nuclear-armed capitalist states--including the US, Russia, and China--compete for resources, markets, cheap labor, and geopolitical military positioning. If we don't replace capitalism's nationalistic competition with socialism's international cooperation, sooner or later these conflicts will end in nuclear annihilation.

Immediate and unconditional withdrawal from Iraq

Q: Should the US support the creation of a Palestinian state?

A: Yes.

Q: Should the US withdraw its troops from Iraq?

A: Yes.

Q: Discuss your proposals for an exit strategy in Iraq.

A: Immediate and unconditional withdrawal. The real US military mission was to establish military bases and control the oil, not WMDs, terrorism, and democracy as the politicians spun it. The mission was imperialistic. It was wrong and it should stop.

Q: What does Hawkins think of replacing US troops with UN in Iraq?

End the War in Iraq

End the War in Iraq. End the US commitment to decades of war trying to impose a military and corporate occupation of the Middle East and its oil. Stop all illegal US-led wars and covert action to overthrow governments (Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Venezuela, etc.).
