I think this pre-Marxist tools of analysis fit some situations, this being
one of them.  

When there is no check on an imperial power (or a network of powers), they
develop a very inflated notion of what they can and can't do.  The implosion
of the USSR seemed to allow the US an opportunity to destroy whatever
respect it had among other industrial states of the West and whatever
credibility it had in the non-Western world.  That's what we're seeing with
this compounding of one questionable crusade after another.

The Marxist tools of analysis can explain why they're picking what they
pick, but its imperial hubris and arrogance.  All superpowers have a very
low resistance to it.
