New President - New American Foreign Policy? Public Meeting Wynns Hotel

08/12/2008 - 19:30


Nahella Ashraf - Chair of the Stop The War Coalition (Manchester) and Stop the War Muslim Network  who has just returned from Pakistan.
Julien Mercille - UCD lecturer and a US Foreign Policy specialist.

With a change in the White House, will there be a change in US foreign policy?

Five and a half years from the invasion of Iraq. seven from Afghanistan and with a threat of attack on Iran, the ‘war on terror’ is purposeless and an even greater human tragedy.

Over 700,000 people have been killed and close to 1.5 million seriously injured in the region since the US and Coalition attacks.  In the midst of a major economic recession, the war
in Iraq alone is costing €300 million a day.

Will Obama stop this obscenity or will he just shift troops to Afghanistan and Iran?
