Into the first few pages of 'The Revenge of Geography', Robert D Kaplan argues American invasion of Iraq a result of idealist minded intervention set on high moral standards. This definitely would sound out of sync with the ground realities to those who lived the time. In the hindsight, when it is easier to be wiser, the argument seems even more bizarre. Further into the book, he argues that miscalculation by the Clinton's Administration think tank of remaining isolated, at least initially, from the Balkan Crisis had caused great humanitarian casualty in erstwhile Yugoslavia. He goes on to write that this was one of the pre-text for invading Iraq to avoid another humanitarian crisis. It only highlights how American Administration's viewpoints to justify world order as per their paradigm have remain stuck in time and how well the same have been expounded by some of the American authors. But the fact lies somewhere else. The urgency of war on Mesopotamia, as against the same in Yugoslavia, was the result of Arrogant American Imperialism. To showcase to the world its brute military power especially Air Force and safeguarding strategic Oil Reserves, Israel and its impact on domestic American politics discounted, were among the true reasons behind that war. This is very well understood today, even by an undergrad student of geography , polity or history. Had the author started the book more candidly, the book would not have become a turn off. Otherwise, the book very well re-interprets the world order to become in the time to come based on geography, economy, polity. . From the literary point of view, some phraseology was avoidable.
