  CONTRADICTIONS IN THE IMPERIALIST SYSTEM
Imperialist powers that had more colonial possessions raised the anachronistic flag of "free trade" to camouflage their own protectionism while those that had less were blatantly protectionist and demanded to have a greater share of global economic territory.
The catchwords of liberalization, privatization and deregulation mean respectively the unbridled flow of imperialist investments and trade, the private appropriation of public assets and funds and the erosion of antitrust laws and removal of social regulations to protect labor, women, children, the aged and the environment.
In the imperialist countries, the proletariat must conjoin with the nonproletarian masses to confront the deteriorating economic and social conditions and the political threats of chauvinism, fascism and racism and prepare for the overthrow of the monopoly bourgeoisie.

 Imperialism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Imperialism draws heavy criticism on the grounds that it is a form of economic exploitation in which the imperialist power makes use of other countries as sources of raw materials and cheap labor, shaping their economies to suit its own interests and keeping their people in poverty.
The adjectival form "imperialist" dates back to the 17th century, but until the late 19th century it meant an adherent of an emperor or of an imperial form of government.
One thing to note in some allegedly imperialistic countries is the "melting" bettween the name -- and in many times, the sense of national identity -- of the titular nation and the other territories controlled by this nation including the titular nation itself.

 Anti-imperialism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
War is generally seen as a method of furthering imperialist interests, which is why Marxists generally see opposition to 'capitalist wars' as an integral part of anti-imperialism (as important as supporting national liberation movments, for example).
The relationship of Marxists and other radical left-wing groups with anti-war movements often involves them trying to win the argument for turning pacifism into anti-imperialism - that is, moving from a general opposition to war towards a condemnation of the economic system that is seen as driving wars.
However, at the same time, it can also be said that it was imperialist as it asserted its dominance over the countries of Eastern Europe.

 CNN Cold War - Historical Document: Report on the International Situation
The imperialist camp is also supported by colony-owning countries, such as Belgium and Holland, by countries with reactionary anti-democratic regimes, such as Turkey and Greece, and by countries politically and economically dependent upon the United States, such as the Near Eastern and South American countries and China.
The cardinal purpose of the imperialist camp is to strengthen imperialism, to hatch a new imperialist war, to combat socialism and democracy, and to support reactionary and anti-democratic pro-fascist regimes and movements everywhere.
The purpose of this camp is to resist the threat of new wars and imperialist expansion, to strengthen democracy and to extirpate the vestiges of fascism.

 Imperialist War and Capitalist Economic Cycles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In short, imperialist war plays a purgative function in the overall imperialist world crisis to the extent, and only to the extent, that it physically destroys the means of production.
In future imperialist world wars it seems almost certain that the means of production will suffer unprecedented extremes of destruction in every imperialist country (as well as large areas of the rest of the world).
In other words, even though the home plant of the U.S. imperialists was not damaged in the war, they were able to benefit from the destruction of the capital of the other imperialist and capitalist countries.

 The Militant - 5/5/97 -- No To The Imperialist Occupation Of Albania!
It's only a matter of time before the powder keg is set off and bloody battles are waged by the Albanian toilers to defend themselves against the imperialist occupation force, whose aim is to attempt to force them to accept as normal the joblessness, social insecurity, and dog-eat-dog competition produced by the workings of capitalism.

Its aim is to advance imperialist domination in the region and make sure that any moves towards East Timorese nationhood won't threaten capitalist rule in Indonesia — where a recent upsurge of working-class protests forced the Indonesian rulers and their imperialist backers to elbow dictator Suharto out of power — and beyond.
The imperialist intervention in East Timor is not only aimed at containing the independence struggle but also at keeping in check the rising struggles of new generations of working-class fighters in Indonesia.

These are between the oppressed nations and people on one hand and the imperialist powers spearheaded by the US, between countries and governments assertive of national independence and the imperialist powers, among the imperialist powers themselves and between the proletariat and monopoly bourgeoisie in the imperialist countries.

By intensifying oppression and exploitation, US imperialists are the very ones most active in rousing the people to fight ever more resolutely and vigorously for their own national and social liberation.

 Imperialist Globalization and the United States   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)

Revolutionaries in imperialist countries always want their rulers to lose, as Tony Cliff observed: "The line of “revolutionary defeatism” is a universal one, applicable to all imperialist countries" (op cit.
Liebknecht’s slogan must be understood in its context: in World War I, while defeatist toward both gangs of imperialist bandits, socialists in every country had a duty to treat their "own" rulers as the "main enemy".
