ABSTRACT
The author presents his view that Iraq cannot be pacified without political reconciliation between opposing parties there. Absent political accord, reductions in violence secured by U.S. troops are only temporary. The example of Anbar province is cited, where alliances between U.S. forces and local tribes have sharply reduced violence.
