ABSTRACT
The author explores the role of past policies in the conflict between the state of Iraq and the Levant group over the control of the city of Fallujah in Iraq. She discusses the impact of the 2003 invasion on the Iraqi society, measures taken by American troops that fostered societal divisions and power struggles and the policies and actions taken by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki. Nonviolence is cited as one measure that can be considered when dealing with such situations.
