Getting Out and Moving On: The Second Gulf War and Its Aftermath
A Cato Institute half-day conference, Tuesday, June 10, 2003
Now that "major combat operations" in Iraq have come to an end, the United States has turned its attention to the post-war environment in Iraq and beyond. American troops are being withdrawn from Saudi Arabia, but many have been shifted to other Persian Gulf states; meanwhile, thousands of troops remain in Iraq. What should be the long-term U.S. strategy in the region? Does the toppling of Saddam Hussein's brutal regime improve the prospects for peace? How might the security situation change in the coming weeks and months? Please join experts for two timely discussions of these issues.
Panel 1 (9:30-10:45 am): Getting Out: Competing Visions for Post-War Iraq
Christopher Preble, Director of Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute; John Hulsman, Research Fellow, Davis Institute for International Policy Studies, Heritage Foundation; Joshua Muravchik, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute; Christopher Layne, Visiting Fellow in Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute
