George W. Bush's election represented a new American foreign policy. Under the influence of neoconservatives, several policies of the projection of US power in the international framework were designed, culminating in events such as the Afghanistan invasion and the Iraq War. The terrorist attacks of "September the eleventh" and the Bush Doctrine construction worked as justification and publicity of new discourses, formulated under the neoconservative doctrine.
