"Looking Back"

Justin Logan strolls through the archives of The Washington Quarterly to find Pollack & Bynum arguing that “a multinational force of initially at least 100,000 troops” would suffice to “reassure Iraq’s Shi‘a and Kurdish communities that repression at the hands of Iraqi Sunnis is at an end” and also “reassure Iraqi Sunnis that the end of their monopoly on power does not mean their persecution and repression, minimizing their incentives to oppose the process.” No insurgency, no sectarian violence. If only we’d listened to them!

Oh, wait. . . .
