ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the war in Iraq and presents two lines of thought regarding the basis for the violence, terrorism and sectarianism. Some believe that terrorists are to blame, others attribute the violence to long standing religious beliefs or hatreds. The author comments on the situation in Baghdad, Iraq as a police war and speculates on how rooted terrorism is to the sectarian beliefs.
