The US led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and its ongoing aftermath may be remembered as the worst tragedy of the early 21st century. It is estimated Iraq has witnessed over 1 million excess deaths, 4.2 million injured people and 4.5 million refugees since the invasion.
- How may we understand the current situation in Iraq?
- What were the reasons and interest behind the invasion?
- What is the role of oil and multinational corporations?
- What is the role of the Netherlands?
- May we speak of Western neo-imperialism?
