From Dictionary.com
pacify ( P ) Pronunciation Key (ps-f)
tr.v. pacified, pacifying, pacifies
To ease the anger or agitation of.
To end war, fighting, or violence in; establish peace in.



From CNN.com

"The heaviest fighting appeared to be occurring in Fallujah, where U.S. Marines were fighting their way into the city block by block, firing on insurgents and pounding houses with tank shells and rockets in a drive to pacify one of Iraqs most dangerous cities."

What else is there left to say?
