The article presents information related to the Iraq war. The Iraq war is being said the sequel of World War II, as the United States spent same amount of time in fighting it. In the author's opinion, World War II was an unparalleled historical event which still determines how people live today and there will never be another war like it that was fought on such a vast and murderous scale.
