Economic Causes of War
The basic cause of modern war is the international rivalries inseparable from capitalism and the capitalist class’s domination of the world’s resources. World War Two was no exception….
… Second World War began. In a few years Russia and the USA were drawn in also. It was a war which blazed over all Europe and Asia and parts of Africa. It was a war fought between rival groups of capitalist states over markets, trade routes and sources of raw materials. It was not about democracy or fascism. – http://www.worldsocialism.org/articles/economic_causes_of_war.php
