The US occupation is fragmenting Iraq and encouraging civil strife, with appalling consequences in terms of bloodshed and destruction. Sami Ramadani is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the London Metropolitan University, and a former exile from Saddam Hussein’s regime. He campaigned for democracy in Iraq, but strongly opposed the US-led invasion, and has written on the subject in the Guardian. He will discuss the nature of the US-led occupation and the prospects for the future: is the US planning a disengagement from Iraq.
