Obama’s escalation in Iraq: a call to arms for the antiwar movement

The immediate reaction to the news of Nobel Peace Laureate Obama’s escalation of war in Iraq is horror & sadness. What the US has already done to Iraq stands as a testimony & condemnation of the killing fields of neoliberalism, the barbaric phase of capitalism. The only possible response is to rebuild the international antiwar movement. We cannot be overwhelmed or daunted by the scale of barbarism, but mobilized to oppose it. There should be emergency rallies of protest around the world. Stopping the US military machine is a historic, international mission.
