Battle lines drawn at debate
Panelists discuss the merits of Iraq invasion
All the panelists agreed on one thing: The timetable for the transition of power needed to be pushed back.

A little more than a year after the U.S.-led war in Iraq, students marked the date by engaging in an impassioned debate Wednesday night arguing the merits of the invasion.

“This is a horrible situation we’ve gotten ourselves into,” said Sean Martin, a senior radio-TV-film major who argued against the war.

Bush administration must take responsibility


This past weekend hundreds of thousands of people from around the world turned out to protest the Bush administration’s hawkish policies and military actions in Iraq. Their voices echo the outrage that was felt when the United States first invaded Iraq over a year ago in what many call an illegal and unprovoked invasion. While no one mourns the loss of Saddam Hussein, we must consider whether toppling his regime has produced the desired effect.
