The Commonwealth Club of San Francisco
595 Market Street, Second Floor
San Francisco, CA 94105
I am a UC Berkeley student and I want to share information about an exciting event at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco. It is being put on by the Inforum division of the Commonwealth Club, a division that caters to people in their 20's and 30's. The event will include an important discussion on the role of Iraq in US foreign policy. It will have several speakers, including the author of Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies, and will be followed by a book signing and wine and cheese reception.
The heat is rising and it's time to take a fresh look at our frenemy, Iran.
Is Iran the new Iraq in U.S. foreign policy?
Are the people of Iran anti-U.S., or is only the current regime? Is there an effective difference?
An American journalist, an Iranian journalist and a professor of Iranian culture, politics and history will help demystify Iran and lead us to a new understanding of the future of our relationship with our neighbors in the Middle East.
