ABSTRACT
The article points out that U.S. President George W. Bush could fail in his goal in Iraq if he and U.S. military leaders misinterpret the effects of the killing of al Qaeda leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The legacy of Zarqawi remains and that is the use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). It is proposed that President Bush allocated about $62 billion for the purchase of anti-IED technology because this is the quickest way to end the War on Terrorism with the least loss of life.
