Some personal memories from the speaker about being in Toronto and Canada. Changes since then, not all for the better. Speaking for himself only, not policymakers in Washington. The allied performance in Iraq. What the United States and the allies do next to win the peace. A "road map" - "Guiding Principles for U.S. Post-Conflict Policy in Iraq" - a review. The need for Washington to begin the process of re-engaging countries who played unhelpful or even destructive roles in NATO or the UN during the lead-up to the war. Looking forward. A widow of opportunity. Remembering certain truisms about the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians. The threat posed by North Korea and what the U.S. should do about it. Leadership.
