The article examines the assumptions about the role that other states can play on the world stage and about the type of contributions they can make in the global war on terror. Three general approaches have been proposed for identifying the states outside the winner's circle of economically advanced and stable states whose cooperation and stability contribute most to the national interests of the United States. Each of these approaches--as should be expected, because of the emphasis of all on state-to-state relations--is realist in its assumption that the state is the most important actor in world affairs and thus that working through and with other states is an effective way for the United States to further its national interests.
