ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on a report of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group on the return of realists such as U.S. Defense secretary Robert Gates and James A. Baker to political positions in order to advise U.S. President George W. Bush regarding the Iraq war. The author noted that realism emphasized a focus on clearly-defined national interests, such as economic or security goals, and emphasized the need for a pragmatic approach to Iraq.
