Lafayette President Arthur J. Rothkopf ’55 and Stephen Lammers, Helen H.P. Manson Professor of the English Bible, will discuss the issue of whether the United States would be justified in starting a war with Iraq 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, in room 224 of Oechsle Hall.

The event is free and open to the public.

Organized by Lafayette Communications Union, the event will be conducted as a formalized, resolutional discussion on the following: “Resolved: Military action in Iraq is justified.” Rothkopf will defend the resolution and Lammers will argue against it.

“This program is organized by the LCU to bring together faculty, students, and area leaders to discuss contemporary controversies,” according to Lafayette Communications Union. “This organization considers education through verbal communication as a paramount way of encouraging change and raising consciousness. One can truly claim ownership of her mindset and beliefs when they are challenged through discussion. LCU hopes to challenge the Lafayette community to look at contemporary controversies and begin to form opinions as a basis for action and social change.”

Lafayette Communications Union is sponsoring the event in conjunction with Kirby Government and Law Society, International Affairs Club, College Democrats, College Republicans, and Students for Social Justice.
