Join us for a special forum on an analysis of U.S. strategy in the Middle East 12 years after the invasion of Iraq featuring Richard Becker, author of Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire, and Western Regional Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition.

Learn what the people of the Middle East are doing to combat the scourge of ISIS, and what U.S. intervention and military build-up means for the region. Come discuss the true goals of the Pentagon in Iraq, Syria and beyond, and how this strategy has shifted in the last decade. 

Among the issues we will discuss are the continuing relevance of Lenin’s famous pamphlet, Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism. Hear about the stages and changes that imperialism has passed through in the past 100 years, and how these changes impact on the struggles in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Forum hosted by the PSL
