Today the Obama administration is sending tanks from Afghanistan to the Ukraine and the US corporate controlled Democrats and Republicans have appropriated over $500 million to militarize the Ukraine after spending over $4 billion to overthrow the Ukrainian government.
At the same time the US and it’s imperialist allies like France and Saudi Arabia is escalating the war against the people of the Middle East and Africa with bombings by jest and drones throughout the region.
In Asia the US is pushing for more military bases in Okinawa, Korea and Australia while secrecy law and revision of history in order to justify a new imperialist war in Asia.
In the midst of this massive expansion of imperialist war throughout the world the US trade unions are completely silent despite the fact that trillions are being spent on this militarization and it is directly connected to the militarization of the police and growing repression here in the US.
This forum will look at the causes of the growing trajectory toward world war and the role of crisis of capitalism and the tasks of the working class in this new world crisis for humanity.
