ABSTRACT
This article marks the third anniversary of the start of hostilities in Iraq. The author notes that in 3 years the United States conquered the country, drove Saddam Hussein from power and has seen the rise of an insurgency that pits itself against the U.S. military. There is also marked sectarian violence that has Shias fighting Sunnis. The American death toll is over 2,300 and tens of thousands of Iraqis have perished. The majority of Iraqis have not joined the insurgency, which the author sees as a hopeful sign.
