On November 5, the Socialist Equality Party and the International Youth and Students for Social Equality held a conference, “Socialism vs. Capitalism and War,” at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

Andre Damon, IYSSE national secretary, gave the first report to the conference: “The Global Crisis and the Danger of World War.” The report examined the past quarter century of unending war, including 15 years of the “war on terror” in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Damon reviewed the moves by the United States to militarily encircle Russia and China and the discussions taking place behind closed doors on the need to prepare for a war involving large nation-states that will entail a level of violence and killing not seen since the Korean War.
