ABSTRACT
This essay discusses the effort of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to make the world democratic and free. Such an effort portrays a vision of a democratic, peaceful world and the warlike ways through which a hegemonic power would impose it through its own diktat. The Bush doctrine is focused on the Middle East. The centerpiece of this policy was the invasion and occupation of Iraq in a military campaign officially dubbed Operation Iraqi Freedom.
