Bush Doctrine

A neoconservative foreign policy idea in the United States. It is most commonly associated with efforts to prevent future terrorist attacks on the United States through the invasion of foreign countries thought to be safe havens for terrorist groups. It is also used to express regime change, or the attempt to replace a dictatorship with a fledgling democracy. More generally, the term describes American unilateralism.
