War and Post-War

November 2003
National Review;11/24/2003, Vol. 55 Issue 22, p16
The article argues that the U.S. should not yet pull out of Iraq and should continue with the international war on terror. The American casualties in the post-war wars in Iraq has been increasing. It is viewed that handing off of the security situation to the Iraqis would worsen the situation. It is suggested that the U.S. should train a competent Iraqi police force. Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has suggested to pass on the security issue of Iraq to the United Nations. There is need to view the terror war as a whole rather than just Iraq. Pro-active counterterrorism activities must be undertaken.
