ABSTRACT
This article outlines what the author believes is a realistic and attainable outcome for the war in Iraq. The author contends that current policy is essentially the absence of policy, and consequently achieving very little. He asserts that the sectarian violence and hatred makes a unified, secular, secure Iraq almost an impossibility. He suggests a partial withdrawal of American troops, who would then relinquish day-to-day security to Iraqi forces, and focus on larger, national goals.
