The United States, Iraq and Iran: Prospects for Peace and Security


While the dangers from terrorism, religious extremism and nuclear proliferation are very real, U.S. policy in the Middle East has only made these threats worse. As the threat of a new war with Iran is added to the horror of the fifth year of war in Iraq, we need a better understanding of what constitutes real security and what can be done to make it possible.

Come hear Professor Stephen Zunes talk about the U.S. governments’ military excursions in the Middle East and its intentions regarding Iran. Dr. Zunes is a Professor of Politics at the University of San Francisco. He serves as Middle East editor for the Foreign Policy in Focus Project, an associate editor of Peace Review and as chair of the academic council of the Institute for Nonviolent Conflict. He authored the highly-acclaimed Tinderbox: U.S. Middle East Policy and the Roots of Terrorism. In 2002, he won recognition from the Peace and Justice Studies Association as Peace Scholar of the Year. Dr. Zunes is the author of scores of articles on Middle Eastern politics, U.S. foreign policy, international terrorism, social movements, and human rights.

WILPF meeting: June 19, 2007, 7:00 pm at the Friends’ Meeting House, 225 Rooney Street (off the Morrissey exit), Santa Cruz. Free.
