An abstract is required. Aftermath the Great War II, when the Allies emerged as triumphant, America clearly established itself as a superpower in the global scenario. however, with the progressive course of time, it also realized that in order to retain its position of supremacy in global politics, it is necessary to dominate over other nations and also attain a stronghold over their natural resources so that the global economy can be governed according to its own wish.
Since the commencement of globalization, especially during the post Second World War onwards, it gradually was becoming clear that industrialization is an important factor to attain success both from economic and political perspectives, and sooner or later there would be a crisis in the stock of natural resources. Thus, nations that will be able to secure the maximum amount of such resources, automatically, will be able to receive special attention from their competitors in the arena of asserting supremacy. The trend of economic imperialism that took a new dynamic form through US foreign policy, also received an explicit manifestation through its war on Iraq, as it regarded this nation as an effective avenue to dominate over Middle Eastern crude oil production sectors. Despite the fact that receiving a complete control over natural oil resources in the Middle East was the main reason of the US government, however, such purpose was attempted to be covered tactfully by US diplomacy with the reasons of ending anarchy or fighting against terrorism, of which this part of the world considered as one of the most fertile grounds. Thus, the consecutive Gulf Wars acted as effective instruments in the hands of the US to receive the hold of the natural oil, elaborately, as tools to dominate over the future of mankind.
The US war over Iraq comprises within its scope a twofold problem: namely, on one hand, there is no denial of the fact that due to socio-religious and cultural orthodoxy, the life of common people in several countries of the Middle East was .surely miserable. Iraq was definitely one of the perfect manifestations of such orthodox social ruling. In addition to this factor, the tyrannical governance of Saddam Hussein was another very crucial factor that remained a great obstacle in the path of globalization from a social, cultural, and economic perspective. As Saddam believed that granting liberty to common people might lead to flourishing of democracy and consequently, to the lessening of his power, he discouraged and on frequent occasions, strictly condemned all such approaches that encouraged the rise of democratic government in Iraq. .
