Socialist Equality Party presidential candidate denounces US escalation of Iraq War

Without the slightest public discussion or debate, US-backed forces have begun the bloody siege of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city. While the Obama administration denounces Syria and Russia for war crimes in Aleppo, the US is preparing a far greater crime against the 1.5 million people, including 600,000 children, who remain trapped in Mosul.

Regardless of who wins the presidential elections—Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump—the American ruling class is determined to exert its domination over the energy-rich Middle East and the world, even if it means war with Russia and China. In this video, the Socialist Equality Party’s US presidential candidate, Jerry White, calls on workers and youth to attend the November 5 conference in Detroit “Socialism vs. Capitalism and War.”
