On Ninth Anniversary of Iraq War

The Kansas City AFSC did not let the ninth anniversary of the Iraq war pass without action. Though many would like the failures and tragedies of the war to pass unnoticed, KC AFSC instead worked to make the anniversary an opportunity to reflect and learn lessons so we do not repeat the horrors of the past.

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

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:
