The United States is sworn to help preserve democracy and to stop highly immoral events (i.e. crimes against humanity.) The co-operation aspect shows that there are many ways liberalism can be seen as the prime diagnosis, but both should be examined to fully understand the situation at hand. The actors that are in this struggle include the regime of Syria, the populace of Syria looking to bring down the regime (rebels), Russia, Iran, United States, and the U.N. Actors, such as Russia and Iran, are looking to fuel this conflict in their own personal interest.
Why has the United Nations Security Council been ineffective in its objective to maintain peace and security around the world in the post-Cold War international order? Introduction The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has been instrumental in maintaining peace in the post-Cold War era. After the Cold War, powerful nations around the world sought to improve the international relations, as they were prudent in enhancing the realization of global objectives in the socioeconomic arena. Strengthening of international relations especially between governments is imperative for peace, security and development in the globe. Peace and security is important for the social, economic and political progress of a nation.
This essay will discuss the interests and possible action that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) may implement with regards to Crimea’s recent annexation by Russia. NATO is a partnership that guarantees shared security and democratic values, as well as collective ‘defense against the threat of aggression’ (Kurt Volker, 2006; Madeleine Albright, 1998). Many of its member states are surrounding the Ukrainian region – which, combined with other factors – creates a very strong regional interest. This essay will first discuss NATO’s organizational structure, and what it means for the Ukrainian conflict. Second, it will focus on NATO’s interests in the region.

These efforts should not be exclusively limited to military support but through the negations of peace talks between Georgia and its neighbors. Conclusion Georgia is a strategic regional ally that is developed substantially since its independence. Georgia has attracted the attention of the international community because of its potential to set precedence in future NATO enlargements. The international community should act with caution when intervening the South Caucuses.

Ramzan Kadyrov’s strong military presence and the extreme warlords’ disappearance both contribute to less violence in Chechnya, but the conflict instead is expanding to the greater North Caucasus. Russian actors were focused on containing Chechen criminality and instability to Chechnya and Chechen actors shifted from fighting for independence to becoming puppets for the Russian government. However, the different catalysts of the two wars – the first being a response to a declaration of independence and the second being a response to terrorism – are the most significant differences when determining the causality of the wars.

Through an extensive study of the events leading up to the war in Iraq, it will be evident that the war could have stemmed for many of reasons. The overall reason, though, is that Iraq has been a continuous threat to the United States, the nation as a whole, and their very country. Looking through the lenses of the Iraqis, Postcolonial theory, will display what this war has done for them, and how many of them depend on the U.S. now until their government is stable enough to make their own civilians feel safe again. Studying the war of Iraq through Liberalism will help touch upon one of the many theories that can be used to understand the war. Liberalism is the theory that was used by President George W. Bush in his decision-making process.
The future looks very promising for our economy in more ways of more trade, less protectionism and better technology and communications. However, the world will look to the U.S. as the saver or as the virtue enemy. To our allies we must keep them as our friends, to our enemies we must keep them down and impose our will on them. We must limit weapons of mass destruction, which seems to be the number one threat to our global stability. Finally, we must assistance other nation’s to achieve political, social and economical success.
The support of these countries was also important to avoid a severe political backlash against the use of military force in Afghanistan. To secure such cooperation and support, country-by-country negotiations were necessary, but they were not sufficient. The campaign against terrorism needed to be rendered legitimate in the eyes of the world - particularly in countries whose governments and people are suspicious of the United States. Unilateral American action could have too easily been portrayed as lashing-out by the powerful "hegemon" at the expense of the poor and the weak. To be legitimate, action had to be authorized collectively, in a public forum representing the whole world.
What is sometimes misunderstood, is the ways in which people where manipulated. New technologies where developed throughout this time period in order to effectively impose the ideas and beliefs of these dictators upon the general population. WWI was the first time that propaganda was used so effectively to sway public opinion and generate nationalism within various counties such as the USA, Russia and then Germany during WWII and the holocaust. Dictators during the early 20 century, and throughout the course of history have been incredibly effective at exploiting the prejudices of the time to forward their own agendas. It is clear that the most important aspect of this time in history is the newly developed ability to manipulate and sway public opinion with the use of propaganda.
Despite spending billions of dollars to fight endless wars, global terrorism rose 43% in 2013. As a result, terrorism has been brought to the fore of not only the American mentality, but the international mentality as well. Consequently, we must do a few things in order to maintain our sanity, dignity, power, and security. We must retaliate forcefully and successfully. We must garner support for our cause and give other countries a reason to want to stand behind America.
