ABSTRACT
In this article, the author explains that while the level of violence in Iraq has decreased, and U.S. troops and local tribes have joined forces in battling al-Queda, it has not totally eliminated the risk of terrorist attacks in Baghdad. Also, there is potential for violence between Sunni and Shi'ite tribes to escalate even further.
