The Roots of the Crisis in Afghanistan

A forum and discussion sponsored by the Wicker Park ISO—Thursday, Oct. 25, 7pm

The scale of the humanitarian crisis facing the Afghanistani people is immense: The U.N. estimates that upwards of 2 million people may face starvation this winter. Millions of Afghanis have been turned into refugees by two decades of war. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been maimed by land mines. Afghanistan is one of the poorest nations on earth, yet on top of all their misery, the military might of the world's richest nation is raining down upon them. We're told U.S. bombs are necessary to stop terrorism and to bring an end to the Taliban's vicious rule. But is this really the aim of the U.S.'s war against Afghanistan? Will terrorizing the Afghani population really help us put an end to terrorism? Come discuss and debate these issues and learn more about the country, its history and its people.
