This paper discusses the history of Iraq's and the US's foreign policies, and the contradictions of the U.S. policy between theory and practice. It discusses how the foreign policy has changed with different government administrations and how the misunderstanding of U.S. foreign policy has often been the cause for conflict between the two countries. The paper focuses on current foreign policy and the need to solve the present crisis.

From the Paper:

"Former Secretary of State Madeline K. Albright once said, "The ultimate trust of our foreign policy is how well our actions measure up to our ideals." Freedom is America's purpose"(Wittkopf 25). In the past two decades, the United States foreign policy toward the Middle East has been greatly tested, challenged, and even questioned. From the Iran-contra scandal that plagued the Reagan administration even down to the current foreign policy concerning anti-terrorism, this nation has been forced to constantly evaluate how much its foreign policy measures up to its ideals of freedom and liberty. Although the United States has had to constantly evaluate its foreign policy, many Middle Eastern countries "in particular, the nation of Iraq" have not had that responsibility, or at least have not embraced such a task. Given the delicate nature of Iraq's foreign policy, the United States is justified in its current ideologies as it concerns Iraq; however, its application of that policy not only contradicts the United Nations'(UN) policy, but it also (and even more importantly) defeats itself, for its application deviates far from its theoretical principles."
