ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the U.S. should react to terrorist attacks on its troops stationed in Iraq. Most of the terrorist attacks are in localities that account for just over 1 percent of Iraqi territory. These attacks are not political or military in nature. It is viewed that this terrorism is a security problem which must be combated with policing methods. The Iraqi Governing Council and the newly created Iraqi police force has been excluded from the task of combating terrorism by the U.S.-led administration.
