ABSTRACT
This article summarizes an essay by Richard Haass in the November-December issue of "Foreign Affairs." Haass argues that the Iraq War has cost the United States influence in the Middle East and regardless of the final outcome it will have to compete with Russia, China and Iran in the future. He believes the direction needed to restore American primacy in the region has already been rejected by the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush.
