Can a uygha get a material analysis on anti-war movements?5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
If your statement is a short or purely theoretical platitude, we won't bother reading it. No-one asked for idealistic noise, you counterrevolutionary fed-enabler.
With that out of the way:
Wars like the Vietnam War and Iraq War are frequent characterised as 'unpopular wars', with notably large anti-war protest movements. The Vietnam War often has people going as far as blaming journalists for the early end of the war, attempting to paint them as traitors. Ending wars has repeatedly been used as populist electoral promise, such as US President Biden (Afghanistan [fulfilled] and Yemen [lol no]), and the Bolsheviks promise to end WWI participation [fulfilled].
This political acknowledgement of anti-war movements suggests that, possibly, such a social movement can compel an imperial power to betray its foreign policy interests. Then again, one could ask, have the withdrawals been a success of popular anti-war movements, or merely a feigned concession which was really motivated by less abstract conditions than popularity, an attempt at claiming a public relations victory out of an action they would have taken regardless of popular resistance? Were these withdrawals instead motivated by, for example, coincidental inevitable defeat? Maybe the answer is more complex, with material direct actions of the anti-war movement (draft dodging, draft sabotage and fragging in Vietnam) being legitimately effective behind the scenes of the indirect and abstract peaceful protests?
Preexisting analyses on the topic are appreciated, such as books or essays.

many such cases
This seems to be a direct response to your excellent discourse here.
>>1658492>The Israel situation is a bit different because the war is unpopular in other countries but not in Israel.
If it doesn't spark in Israel, then the international anti war movement will turn into something else.
