First proposed by George Carlin following the initiation of the Persian Gulf War in 1991; the bigger dick foreign policy theory theorizes the justification of war (or conflict in general) being based solely on the size of the aggressor's penis in comparison to the penis size of the defender. Generally, the aggressor possesses a smaller penis in comparison to the defender, and so feels compelled to attack/invade/conquer the defender in order to feel better and prove to others that he is the superior of the two, despite his smaller penis size.

When used to explain war justification, it also explains the visual similarity between rockets, bombs, and bullets, and features they share with phallic imagery, as "the need to project the penis into other peoples' affairs", and is thought to be the origin of the phrase "fucking with people".

The bigger dick foreign policy theory is usually born out of, and is very often related to, dick fear.
"You don't have to be a historian or a political scientist to see bigger dick foreign policy theory at work. It sounds like this: 'What, they have bigger dicks?! Bomb them!'"
