Voices Around Town

Ten years after the invasion of Iraq, what are your thoughts on U.S. foreign policy?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Nick Veronin.

"I believe America's foreign policy is definitely improving since the invasion. I think that we are promoting peace across the world. At the same time, I think that America is still motivated by giant businesses."

Alan Lam, San Mateo

"I'm happy, because I think our country's stance is shifting to where we're not just going to get into a war very easily anymore. And I think that's the right direction to go."

Jim Jasmin, Newark

"War is a dangerous thing. In general, I feel that war is theft. Overall, I think we're definitely moving in the right direction by pulling people out."

Alex Radocea, Mountain View

"We have far too much involvement in the Middle East. I think we need to get right out."

Sonja Fenwick, Mountain View

"I think we may have accomplished something by taking out (Saddam Hussein), but how are (the Iraqis doing)? I feel like the U.S. has a vision of what they wanted, but what if it doesn't turn out the way we want it in the next 30 years?"

David Serna, San Jose
