Will the U.N. Bail Out Bush?: "To save his administration, Bush must now essentially abandon the aggressive unilateralism that has dominated his foreign policy since even before Sep. 11, 2001; ask forgiveness from U.S. allies who refused to join his ”coalition of the willing” into Iraq; and return to the United Nations Security Council for a new resolution that will give the world body control over the occupation... [Advisors'] message: ”The United States cannot by itself afford the burdens -- either economically or politically -- of occupying Iraq. We need help, and lots of it, even though we know that we will have to give up control to get it”... The question is what will be the U.N.'s price for bailing the administration out, and will Bush be willing to pay it?"
