Abstract: THE successful completion of elections in Iraq is a long-anticipated victory for the United States. While the Bush administration has rhetorically maintained its continuing resolve and determination to bring democracy to the country and the wider Middle East, it should not come as a surprise if Washington would see the elections as a window of opportunity to finally establish and implement an exit strategy for the US. This proposition has ramifications not only for Iraq but also a new security actor in international conflict – the privatised military industry.
