This chapter, which examines the impact of the Iraq War on U.S. efforts to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons, suggests that the Bush Doctrine failed and that the invasion has only convinced other countries that they must have nuclear weapons in order to deter U.S. aggression against them. It highlights the need to develop a new counterproliferation strategy based on an understanding of the failures of the Iraq War.

Keywords:   Iraq War, nuclear weapons, U.S. aggression, Bush Doctrine, counterproliferation strategy
