One can exploit the AdS/CFT correspondence to gain great insight into questions related to the qualitative behavior of QCD. It is observed that the inclusion of dynamical flavors into N=4 SYM gives a simple interpretation of QCD string snapping in the gravity dual. Although there is no confinement in this sense of area law Wilson loops, all asymptotic states are color neutral and color charge is completely screened.
