May 6th 1988: Who will win the Iran – Iraq war?

This was one of the questions which was asked from a panel of distinguished experts on the 6th of May, 1988 in Washington DC.

The panel was also asked, what does winning look like and if neither side is going to win the war, how will the war end?

These are questions which would have been very difficult to answer.

The war actually ended three and half months after this conference, on the 20th of August 1988. Iran and Iraq both accepted UN resolution 598.

The replies are interesting and informative.

  1. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
