This month on War News Radio, “Forward Thinking”, we first discuss the future of Iraq in light of the ten year anniversary this past March. Then, we hear about a Philadelphia-based peace group protesting research on drone technology. Finally, we hear a Rwandan genocide survivor’s perspective on justice, forgiveness, and life in America.
In this month’s show, we commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the war in Iraq through a look at the country’s past, present and future and the impact the U.S. invasion has had throughout. First, we reconnect with a member of War News Radio’s founding staff to re-examine a piece she produced in 2006. Next, we talk to four Iraqis living in Baghdad about their thoughts on the war and why it continues to linger. Then, we hear about a group stationed in Iraq to promote peace and human rights. Finally, we find out why the question of when the war began is almost as hard to answer as when it will end.
