The article focuses on the new resolution needed for the use-of-force on Iraq. It notes that many U.S. soldiers continue to fight and die under a congressional authorization that is irrelevant to the war they are fighting in the Middle East country. It is suggested that what is needed is a new authorization that clearly defines America's core interest in Iraq which includes eradicating the Al Qaeda groups, preventing war and precluding genocide.
