ABSTRACT
The author focuses on how the U.S. can succeed in the Iraq war. He states that U.S. operations in Iraq have routinely violated the most basic precept of counterinsurgency, which is to secure the population. He claims that too often U.S. troops have cleared out a town, city or neighborhood, only to have been pulled out. He believes the success of the U.S. will depend not so much on the numbers of its armed forces deployed in Iraq, but on how they are deployed.
