Saddam Hussein has been removed from power but the war with Iraq is not over yet and the costs of the conflict continue to rise, much to the consternation of the American taxpayer. With the latest developments, including plans for an interim Iraqi government being put on hold and ethnic killings between Kurds and Arabs in Kirkuk on an upward curve, some U.S. lawmakers are beginning to wonder whether peace in Iraq might be costlier than the war. Adding to the problems facing the U.S. military in running Iraq, lack of water and electricity services and the lawlessness that appears almost unstoppable, policemen and other civil servants have not turned up for work, or when they do they seem to be on a non cooperative move that has exasperated American administrators.
