The Bush II Years In the Middle East (2000-2008):Morals and Interests

Based on the results of a research covering the eight years of the Bush administration (2000-2008), we may from the outset assert that whenever the materialistic interests engaged in fierce conflict with the moral ideology preached by the Bush team, materialistic interests triumphed. Furthermore, these interests represent the ins and outs of the general policy of the Bush administration. Thus, the real motive behind Bush policy is not related to an ethical vision but rather confined to materialistic interests.

This introductory chapter aims to explore the problems posed by a systematic approach to the US foreign policy in the Middle East. It will emphasize the use of microsociology and macrosociology tools...  Goffman's interactionism, Parsons' functionalism,  and other methodological instruments for the analysis of political Action with respect to US foreign policy in general and to the Bush administration in particular.
