“Pakistan: What Are the Realities?”

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s June 2010 TV program is about Pakistan.

The US war in Iraq seems to have dropped out of the news, but are those problems really solved? Or has a sleight-of-hand maneuver of public relations trickery shifted our attention from the “bad” war in Iraq to the “good” war in Afghanistan?

And why has the US war in Afghanistan escalaated into Pakistan, where the US is attacking people – including many innocent civilians – in a country that is supposed to be our ally?

The American people are long overdue in understanding Pakistan and the realities that seem to be baffling the Obama Administration and the Pentagon.

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s June 2010 TV program features two knowledgeable guests with great insights into other parts of the world. Our guests will clearly explain the historical background and current events regarding Pakistan.

Zahid Shariff is originally from Pakistan, but he has lived in the U.S. for 40 years and is a US citizen. He teaches Political Science at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.

Steve Niva teaches International Politics and Middle East Studies at The Evergreen State College. He has written extensively about U.S. foreign policy and the Middle East, and his writings have appeared in many respected periodicals.
