This thesis examines the ideology of George W. Bush prior to and during the Iraq War. In the decision to invade Iraq in 2003, George Bush used ideology to justify the invasion. The method used to determine the nature of Bush's ideology is content analysis of Bush's speeches. The thesis finds that George W. Bush's ideology regarding Iraq was heavily influenced by neo-conservatism, and was influenced very little by realism.
