In the Wake of War

By Remy Benoit

   When a government is removed, a power vacuum is left; chaos reigns.  That time is a very precarious time for a nation as people are often in favor of the return of stability, and sometimes are prone to overlooking its price tag.

   US troops face a daunting task in Baghdad, as well as the rest of Iraq.

   Some reports from that nation follow:
