Students learn about US relations with Europe

November 1, 2002

Albany - The war on terror and a possible attack on Iraq has students in South Georgia thinking about our relationship with the rest of the world.

Friday, Albany State University Students listened to Doctor David Patton of Connecticut College. He touched on the recent disagreement between the US and European allies, especially Germany.

ASU teachers hope their students learn more about US foreign policy. ASU Criminal Justice professor, Dr. Glenn Zuern, says, "One of the issues Bush Administration wanting to get Europe on board to attack Iraq. What's interesting, they say we want world support, but in reality we're talking about Europe."

Doctor Patton said Europe knows first hand about terrorism, like the IRA in Northern Ireland, and they don't want to overreact by going to war.
