National Security Strategy

September 2002

George W. Bush

"We will not hesitate to act alone, if necessary, to exercise our right of self-defense by acting preemptively," intones George W. Bush's national security strategy, a set of principles likened by the Moscow Times to Hitler's Mein Kampf, and described by the New York Times as Bush's "How I'll rule the world" blueprint. It was adopted September 22, 2002.
