The end of the Cold War represented the victory of capitalist democracies over the socialist model, which meant the extension of USA influence and example. The only superpower faces now the role of leading an unbalanced world, and reducing the chance of conflict with other world powers that might challenge its dominant position. The national security concept implies defining the questions of jurisdiction within its empire and it is somewhat undermined by the Wilsonian idea of self-determination. Although this new world needs a benevolent America, the steps taken by the Bush administration seem to drive the superpower in an opposite direction.
