The Study of United States' Policy toward Iraq(2002-2005)
In the face of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Bush administration announced the war on terror by taking military action against the regime of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Because of Iraq’s special geopolitical position in the Middle East, the war had come in the spotlight since its beginning in March 2003. 9/11 terrorist attacks have brought the US some huge and profound changes to its domestic and foreign policies. This event has become a turning point not only because of the effect on the US it caused, but also because of the chain reactions and policy adjustments afterward. All of this has brought profound shifts to the landscape of international politics after the Cold War.
In the past four years, the Bush administration has taken tough approach to foreign policy. Especially its unilateralism has aroused unease in the whole world. Be it tough or mild, America’s foreign policy is always based on the country’s national interest and works for its strategic benefits in the international arena. Thus, observation of the US foreign policy can’t be done without these two factors considered.
The tough foreign policies adopted by the US have stirred great opposition from the international community. Relations with those traditional Western allies were also damaged badly with the cracks yet to be mad up. Worse yet, though the Iraq war had ended, the time still seems far away for the US to withdraw its troops from the country because of the rough conditions in Iraq.
The thesis starts the analysis with geopolitics and then discusses the US policy toward Iraq and their effects. At the conclusion, the current situations in Iraq and the changes in US foreign policy will be talked about. Hope we can learn from history.
Key word: America’s War on Iraq、United States' Policy、Iraqi Reconstruction
