    The U.S. Congress needs to examine the methods and process of environmental reviews under the Trade Act of 2002, which explicitly gives Congress the power to determine whether environmental issues are effectively incorporated into U.S. trade negotiations, to ensure they are used to inform trade negotiations in a timely manner.

    Why Oil Won't Be a Quick Fix

    The initial goal is to return Iraq’s production to at least 2 million barrels a day, but 2 million barrels a day, earning around $15 billion annually, will not yield a financial surplus to Iraq.

    The Hinge to Europe: Don't Make Britain Choose Between the U.S. and the E.U.

    The Iraq War has drastically weakened Tony Blair's domestic position. If Washington forces Britain to choose between the United States and Europe, it may not choose the United States, and a collapse of the relationship with Britain would leave the United States without a single major Western ally. The consequences for U.S. power and influence in the world would be nothing short of disastrous.
