The article offers the author's view on the concept of the doctrine, right to protect, and the obligation of Western culture known as the White Man's Burden. He mentions that the objective concealment of strategic dominance and economic exploitation was considered as a convenient method of justifying imperialism, colonialism and armed aggression. He also provides an overview of the Kosovo War and the attack of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) against Yugoslavia in 1998 to 1999.
