Iraq War and Internation Relation Paradigms

Before delving into the paradigms, it is necessary to refresh the facts leading up to this study. In the aftermath of World Trade Center collapse in September 2001, Bush found a path to reach many parts of the world for various reasons that were presented to the Congress and the public, but not favored by the majority overall. The most significant impact was on Iraq because the war is still in progress. The question is still inevitable as to why the Bush administration chose Iraq to invade. In his State of the Union Message, Bush commented, Iraq’s illegal weapons programs, its attempts to hide those weapons from inspectors, and its links to terrorist groups, (Bush’s Deep Reasons for War on Iraq) referring to Saddam’s underground activities. There have been no terrorists’ arrests in Iraq and in October, Duelfer released a preliminary report finding that in March 2003 – the month of invasion-Saddam did not have any weapons of mass destruction (WMD) stockpiles and had not started any program to produce them (Official: U.S. Calls off Search for Iraqi WMD’s).

Then what is it that makes Iraq, and it is crucial to once again reiterate that no weapons of mass destruction were really found, the main target of the Bush Administration
Imperialism-Is America Building a New Empire
Throughout history, many superpowers have built vast empires through imperialism. such as the Turks’ Ottoman Empire and the British Empire. Yet, America has never shown fondness in the concept of imperialism and neither has invaded and conquered a country to build an empire. However, with the recent political activities, suspicions do arise to question the intentionality of the Bush Administration.
