Global Fault Line: Western Policies and the Middle East

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 22.12.59Conflicting geo-political interests in the Middle East makes the region a fulcrum for international conflict. Following the disastrous war against Iraq, the ramifications of the ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings have further alarmed the US-Saudi-Israeli nexus, and have already led to the NATO intervention in Libya, to calls for greater intervention in Syria, and to Western threats of war on Iran. Sami Ramadani will explore this explosive situation with us. He has been an active participant in campaigns against Saddam’s regime and in anti-war and anti-imperialist struggles for many years. He writes and speaks widely on Middle East issues and is a Guardian contributor. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the Stop the War Coalition (StWC).
