The world faces old and new security challenges that are more complex than our multilateral and national institutions are capable of managing. While the United States and its allies struggle in Iraq and Afghanistan, tensions in the Middle East, nuclear proliferation concerns in Iran and North Korea, and new transnational threats such as terrorism show little sign of abating. Solutions to these crises and threats require sustained multilateral cooperation at a time when the absence of American leadership has left global security institutions chronically weak.
