Beschreibung:

In the words of Mark Twain,"History doesn't repeat itself- at best it sometimes rhymes." As Americans, we need to learn as much as we can from history because it has the potential to guide us when we find ourselves in similar situations in the present. This paper offers a glimpse into U.S. foreign policy in the War of 1898 and the Iraq War of 2003 and the structural and ideological factors involved in shaping it. To do this, this paper looks into the constitutional "struggle" between the Executive and Legislative branches of government along with their ideology, and shows how these factors combined to shape U.S. Foreign Policy. In researching these two similar but different wars in U.S. history, it can be shown that when congress is divided along party lines fairly evenly, the president has more power to shape foreign policy, and that policy will usually reflect his or her ideology. When there is a clear majority in congress, congress has more of an impact in shaping foreign policy and can force the president, regardless of his or her ideology, into foreign policy decisions that reflect congresses ideology. By studying these two foreign policy events in U.S. history, this paper examines how the ideological and structural factors inherent in our government combine to influence foreign policy, both in the past and present.
