The chapter opens with an analysis of President George W. Bush’s foreign policy approach and the trends and views of the American public. A critical examination is made of the Global War on Terrorism. Then, the chapter gives a detailed analysis of how the decision to invade Iraq was made and carried out, including an analysis of how American resistance to that decision was overcome. The notion of an Axis of Evil and the confrontations with North Korea and with Iran are critically analyzed. The Bush administration’s effort to mediate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is examined. The chapter concludes with an analysis of applications of the constructive conflict approach between 2001 and 2008.
