Abstract 
Media Framing of Geostrategic Outcomes of
War in Iraq 
This study explores how the media in the US covered Iran in the context of Iraq War and influenced ability of  the public  to understand geopolitical consequences of US policies  in the War. By toppling Saddam Hussein’s government, the US administration chose to break decades’ long policy of containment towards Iran, arguably increasing Iranian geopolitical leverage and creating  turbulence on a  territory critical for  the US security and stability  in the  Middle  East. When  Iraq War  is  concerned,  the  mainstream  media  rarely  seem  to examine tactical outcomes in the light of broader, strategic goals. Success is usually seen as diminishment  of  violence,  reduction  of  US  casualties  and  the  creation  of  a  stable government in Iraq. However, such media discourse fails to point out that the US had not gone  to  Iraq  to quell what  it  terms  to be “sectarian violence,” or  to  reduce US casualties, and  hence  neglects  to  hold  the  government  accountable  for  the  possible  failure  of  its strategic  policy  goals.  Nor  does  such  discourse  raise  questions  as  to what  constitutes  a stable  Iraqi government and  the  implications  thereof  for  the  regional and global  security.
