Foreign policy is Restless Minds topic

Bill Gates

The Restless Minds discussion group wastes no time wading back into controversy on Tuesday, September 9, as its summer hiatus ends.

American foreign policy will be the topic when the group meets in the sewing room of Oakwood’s Arts & Crafts Center, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Restless Minds is open to all persons with inquisitive, open minds. It has no dues or admission requirements. Just show up and participate in the discussion.

The foreign policy evening will focus on military challenges in the Middle East and Ukraine. The decision to bomb ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) terrorists and what the continued U.S. response will be discussed will be a prominent topic.

Another is whether Israel went too far in its actions in Gaza. Discussion leader Bill Gates wonders what our role should be with our Mideast ally.

As Russia’s Putin continues provocative pressure on Ukraine, the group will discuss what the western world’s response should be and whether anything can be accomplished in the region without American leadership.

The first few minutes of the September meeting will be devoted to planning future topics. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month, September through May. For more information call Bobbie Reed or Bill Gates at 883-7410.
