Wednesday, May 4 @ 7:00 PM, Carlson School, 321 19th Avenue S, U of M West bank Campus, Room 1-127, Minneapolis, MN

On March 19, 2011 the U.S. launched a new military intervention in the Middle East, this time in Libya. The military action in Libya was called a humanitarian response to the crisis in that country.

Come to the May 4th forum for a discussion:  *What economic and political issues are behind U.S. military interventions around the world?  *Why is the history of U.S. military action being couched in humanitarian terms?  *Will “humanitarian intervention” be the new excuse for waging wars around the world?
