ABSTRACT
According to the article author, we will know in a matter of days whether the war will continue for any appreciable time in Iraq. The U.S. in wisdom made the decision to stop prosecuting the war, and allowed Iraq ruler Saddam Hussein to be released to Iraqi officials. The decision did not require much courage. As a matter of fact, it required no courage at all. It required only an absence of stupidity. This is something that has not been America's strong suit in President George W. Bush's definition of prosecuting a war in a Muslim country.
