Abstract:

Viewing the Operation Iraqi Freedom case study through Maslows lens, the following questions will be proposed. First, what is Iraqs history This first question is necessary to put into context the condition of Iraq when U.S. forces invaded. Second, were Iraqis physiological needs being met Third, what did Iraqis view as most important in the years immediately following the invasion Did they want democracy or sovereignty before security, employment, or health care Fourth, were Iraqis safety needs met Fifth, what challenges did the U.S. face while establishing a government in Iraq This question is tied to Maslows hierarchy of needs as a way to examine key decisions made by the Coalition Provision Authority CPA and the impacts those decisions had on the Iraqi people. Finally, the Huk Rebellion in the Philippines is provided as a successful example of the application of Maslows principles.
