Change My Mind: Ten Years On, Was The Iraq War Worth It?

Ten years on from the historic and record-breaking demonstrations against the Iraq war, the Huffington Post UK is asking "Was It Worth It?" at a public debate, co-hosted with Goldsmiths, University of London.

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and hundreds of Brits, have lost their lives over the past decade - but the Anglo-American invasion also resulted in the toppling of Saddam Hussein and his brutal regime.

Below, two prominent Iraqi activists - Dr Ali Latif, chair of the Iraqi Prospects Organisation, and novelist Haifa Zangana - debate whether or not we can say the war was worth it.

Can they change your mind?

Both Latif and Zangana will be speaking at Goldsmiths tonight (Thursday 7 February), alongside Clare Short, David Aaronovitch, Mehdi Hasan and others. For free tickets, click here
