What could be the long-term impact of the Iraq war on U.S. diplomatic relations?
I do think it’s important to remember that the United States during the Clinton administration and early in the George W. Bush administration repeatedly went to the United Nations, and the United Nations adopted a series of resolutions demanding that Iraq disarm and allow inspectors to verify their disarmament.

And again, in the long term, I think the United States will remain committed to participating actively in the United Nations and in the Security Council.
