In this talk, Jarrar will address the US occupation of Iraq from the perspective of ordinary Iraqis. He will debunk myths about the occupation, explain why the "Sunni vs. Shiite vs. Kurd" model of conflict is problematic, provide concrete examples of how U.S. is stifling democracy in Iraq, and argue that the U.S. should completely withdraw from Iraq.
