Legacies of Iraq War / Lessons for U.S. Iran Policy

Monday, March 19, 2012 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

How do we evaluate the legacy of nine years of war in Iraq and prevent our repeating mistakes in Iran and elsewhere?

First steps are facing the truth about how the U.S. public was manipulated and frightened into accepting war and the truth about the devastation the war has wrought for Iraq and the U.S.

Hear a panel speak about the human, economic and political impacts of the Iraq war on Iraq and the U.S., analysis of U.S. Iran relations and how lessons from Iraq can guide U.S. Iran policy.

Panel members include:

Afghan Images Stir Kansas Citians

By Jon Krieg, AFSC Senior Administrative Associate

Talk with people at a recent reception marking the opening of AFSC’s Windows and Mirrors Exhibit in Kansas City and you hear reactions like powerful and intense, painful and hopeful.
