The Tour for a Just Foreign Policy in Iran and Iraq is making its way across the Northeast in November with an amazing lineup of speakers and a photo exhibit by award winning photojournalists.  We invite you to join us when we pull into town.


Raed Jarrar, Iraq Project Director at Global Exchange, architect, and blogger

Antonia Juhasz, author of The Bush Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time and visiting scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies

Rostam Pourzal, President of the U.S. branch of the Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran


Over 600,000 Iraqis have died as a result of war and political violence since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, according to a recent study by Johns Hopkins University.  The number of U.S. soldiers injured in Iraq this September was the higher than any other time a major offensive was not being conducted.  A U.S. State Department poll in September found that most Iraqis want U.S.-led military forces to immediately withdraw.  So, why does the Bush administration refuse to leave Iraq?

Washington’s “diplomacy” toward Iran looks suspiciously like the lead up to the Iraq war.  Two thousand hours of UN inspections have turned up no evidence of an Iranian atomic weapons program.  So, why is the Bush Administration threatening Iran?  Will Iran be left alone if Tehran agrees to end its nuclear fuel program?  Would Iran be flexible about its nuclear program if the country felt secure from American domination?  Is Iran or the Bush administration responsible for the erosion of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty?

What is the role of U.S. corporations, particularly oil corporations, in perpetuating the war in Iraq and advancing a potential war with Iran?
