“Wolfowitz Doctrine” became the American foreign policy during the Bush administration; fast forward to today in 2020, it continues to be the template for the U.S Foreign Policy and has become even more brash under the Trump Administration.
Main goals of the Wolfowitz Doctrine.
THE U.S. MUST SHOW THE LEADERSHIP NECESSARY TO ESTABLISH AND PROTECT A NEW ORDER THAT HOLDS THE PROMISE OF CONVINCING POTENTIAL COMPETITORS THAT THEY NEED NOT ASPIRE TO A GREATER ROLE OR PURSUE A MORE AGGRESSIVE POSTURE TO PROTECT THEIR LEGITIMATE INTERESTS. IN NON-DEFENSE AREAS, WE MUST ACCOUNT SUFFICIENTLY FOR THE INTERESTS OF THE ADVANCED INDUSTRIAL NATIONS TO DISCOURAGE THEM FROM CHALLENGING OUR LEADERSHIP OR SEEKING TO OVERTURN THE ESTABLISHED POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC ORDER. WE MUST MAINTAIN THE MECHANISM FOR DETERRING POTENTIAL COMPETITORS FROM EVEN ASPIRING TO A LARGER REGIONAL OR GLOBAL ROLE. – U.S. primacy
