However, past research revealed that not every political motive is attained successfully by the donors. As an example, the motive for national economic security in America had diminished due to a huge fall in the number of United State Agency for International Development (USAID) staff by over 3000 and a sum of 45 projects were rejected, indicating their economic condition is affected (Fleck & Kilby, 2001)....   [tags: International Finance ]

The Nixon Doctrine and Its Effects on International Relations - ... The Vietnam War took place during the Cold War which signified an era in which many of the United States’ international policies were designed with communism in mind. The Vietnam War was simply another chapter in this effort with the main goal of not allowing communism to spread into Vietnam and other developing nations.
