IntroductionOn 11th September 2001 a group of terrorists hijacked commercial aircrafts and flew them into world trade centre and Pentagon in the United States killing thousands of innocent people America the sole superpower responded with decisive invasion in Afghanistan and toppled Taliban regime in a few months Two years later the US launched another pre-emptive strike against Iraq on the ground of Saddam Husseins suspected Weapons of Mass Destruction MWD programme and alleged connections with terrorist groups Although the US has been stuck by the nightmare reconstruction processes in Afghanistan and Iraq it has remained very vigilant and gone vigorously after hard-core leaders of Al-Qaeda and other notorious international terrorist groups American security community has made great effort to eliminate terrorists and prevent extreme groups from infiltrating weak states in Middle East Africa and Asia Newman 2007 Former president George W Bush made it clear in his State of the Union address in 2002 that America will keep the global war on terrorism in the forefront all departments and agencies of the US Government will promote combating terrorism as a standard agenda item for their bilateral and multilateral discussions Bush 2002 All those developments indicate that Americas security priority was suddenly shifted from winning conventional wars to anti-terrorism campaign after 911 attacks However I would argue that the priority on defeating terrorism does not necessarily mean the concept of rogue states has become irrelevant to the US national security policy In contrast policy makers in the defence establishment and security community remain keep close eye on rogue states To certain extent the war on terror has further reinforced the notion of rogue statesThis essay is divided into four sections The first section outlines how the concept of rogue states has developed and embedded into US security policy The second section explores how the US policymakers relate the war on terror and rogue states The third section examines the US underlying geopolitical interest in reiterating threats
