although not easy, i still want to give it a try

despite the Iraq war, 尽管存在伊拉克战争(以及由此而带来的分歧;但不是爆发了战争)
it wants to remain friends meaning mr bush is flirting
美国仍想与他们为友 sounds like they have broken up the relationship. that's an overstatement. as a matter of fact, they are brothers bound by the NATO treaties (one for all and all for one).

不过在批评伊拉克战争的人士看来,沃尔福威茨先生也是被他们频频抨击的靶子。
grammar! now i try a minimum change for it
1. 不过在批评伊拉克战争的人士看来,沃尔福威茨先生也是一个被抨击的好靶子。
2. 不过对批评伊拉克战争的人士来说,沃尔福威茨先生也是一个被他们频频抨击的靶子。
btw, 频频抨击 frequently attack(ed); received a lot of criticisms; etc.

not knowing what to make of

not knowing what to make of sb = not able to form an opinion about sb

这个make of 和make or break 里的make 意思不一样。这句话的意思不是成就他,而是说搞不清楚他。
