Pause, or full stop?
Neoconservatives now say they want WWIV to look more like WWIII:
[A]lmost all of the leading neoconservative intellectuals have portrayed the Iraq war as just one chapter in a larger struggle against Islamic extremism. But in a flurry of articles and statements since the fall of Baghdad, many of those same thinkers are contending that the next steps should involve diplomatic and economic pressure, not military force.
At least, not right away. Ronald Brownstein explains in today's Los Angeles Times. (Don't worry, he also explains the new "world war numbering" system.)
