First-person report by Sami Rasouli about the situation in Iraq and the Middle East during a recent trip to the U.S.

Sami Rasouli is an Iraqi-American who lived in Minnesota for many years before returning to Iraq after the 2003 U.S. invasion. Sami works in Iraq with the Muslim Peacemakers Team (MPT), a group dedicated to the principles of nonviolence. He returns to the U.S. several times each year to help build people-to-people bridges.

What is happening in Iraq today?
What is ISIS? Is the Iraqi army as bad as ISIS?
What is the U.S. military doing in Iraq? Is a new major U.S. war in Iraq imminent?
What is the role of Islamophobia in the west in justifying U.S. intervention?
What is happening in Mosul?
Who is benefiting from Iraqi oil resources?

After the loss of thousands of lives in Iraq over the past 11 years, millions of refugees later, and trillions of dollars spent, the U.S. is starting a new military intervention in that country.

The talk was sponsored by the Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) End War Committee.
