Powell: US will not cede control of Iraq to UN
'"We didn't take on this huge burden with our coalition partners not to be able to have a significant dominating control over how it unfolds in the future. " Powell said the United Nations should, however, have a role in a post-Saddam Iraq, if only because it makes it easier for other countries to contribute to reconstruction costs.'

This will be tough for France, Germany and Russia to swallow. America will dominate and control Iraq but other countries can contribute to the reconstruction costs. The UN does not want to do anything to give legitimacy or support to the aggressors.
