The analysis of Iraq's domestic environment concentrates upon its geography, population and ethnicities, economic and military conditions, and the post-Saddam political situation. It places emphasis upon the last element due to its significance for Iraq's foreign policy. Hoshyar Zebari is the central figure in contemporary Iraqi foreign policy. Serving four rulers of Iraq and surviving two US secretaries of state, the Iraqi minister of foreign affairs represents the sole constant amidst “turmoil, confusion, and constant change”. His speeches and interviews offer a sort of understanding of the global and regional systems as well as the position of the new Iraq in them. The last section of this chapter analyzes foreign policy behavior of the new Iraq at the global and regional levels.

Keywords:   Saddam Hussein, George Bush, September 11, Hoshyar Zebari, US
