Massive antiwar sentiment in the US and throughout the world has made it difficult for the US to conduct wars today as they did in Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan. People do not want to see another quagmire with US military boots on the ground. As a result, the US has turned towards militarized drones, special operations forces and the use of US allies, proxies and right-wing forces to push its imperialist agenda in country after country. This is the case in Syria, Africa, Venezuela and with its intervention in Ukraine. The panel will discuss the mechanisms that the US uses to make this happen and the response needed from the antiwar movement today.
