While discussing President Bush’s interest in Iraq at the Convention of the Future of Europe on August 30, 2002, British House of Commons leader Robin Cook said: ” ‘We are in a unique period in the history of the world, in which there is one global superpower without a rival, and yet it is also a superpower whose President does not accept global responsibility. Whether it is Kyoto or Johannesburg, whether it is the International Criminal Court or the Chemical Weapons Convention, whether it is the Middle East peace process or Iraq, their instincts are unilateralist rather than multilateralist. The world today needs a strong, united Europe that can provide an alternate vision in international forums.’ ”
