America's War for the Greater Middle East
On October 6 at 7:00 p.m. Andrew Bacevich, a noted scholar, author, and
critic of U.S. imperialism, will be speaking on U.S. policy, or lack
thereof, in the Middle East. The venue will be Westminster Unitarian
Church at 24 Kenyon Street in East Greenwich, RI. This public presentation
will be based largely on his most recent book: America’s War for the
Greater Middle East: A Military History. Among his eight other books is the
important Washington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent War. There will be
a Q&A period but the targeted ending time is 9:00 p.m.
Prior to a distinguished academic career, Bacevich served in the U.S. Army,
retiring with the rank of Colonel. His son, Andrew Bacevich Jr., was also
in the army but was killed in Iraq by an IED. Dr. Bacevich had expressed
strong opposition to this disastrous war prior to his son’s death.
In addition to the books, Bacevich has written many articles that have been
published in various magazines and journals and has appeared frequently on
a variety of news shows. He is a Professor Emeritus of Boston University
and also is an associate editor for Harper’s Magazine.
This event is being organized by the Rhode Island Anti-War Committee, Pax
Christi Rhode Island, the American Friends Service Committee, and the
Tuesday Interfaith Peace Group. Cosponsoring and hosting is the Social
Responsibility Committee of Westminster Unitarian Church. Light
refreshments will be available and attendees are encouraged, if possible,
to bring cookies or some type of simple finger food to share. There is
ample parking in the Church lot.
