ABSTRACT
The article talks about the debate in the U.S. over the Iraq war. Ralph Peters, a retired Army officer, wrote in the "New York Post" that the U.S. troops are creating progress in routing the insurgents. He asserted that the forces of al Qaeda will soon be defeated if the troops stay on the course. It is believed that effective governance is beginning to reappear at the local level although the national government of Iraq remains weak.
