30 ISSUES: HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION

Thursday, October 07, 2004 - 10:54 AM

Today's topic is "humanitarian intervention." When is it acceptable to take up arms to save lives? Does the war in Iraq qualify? What should the U.S. do in Darfur?

Our guests today are Nancy Soderberg who served as a foreign policy official in the Clinton administration and Vance Serchuk from the American Enterprise Institute. Join the discussion and let us know what you think.

Here are some links to what the presidential candidates have to say:

Senator Kerry on Darfur

President Bush at the U.N.

and here's what Human Rights Watch had to say about the war in Iraq as a humanitarian intervention.
