century, the United States had become the dominant force in international
relations. Some have argued that the United States’ military functions as the
world’s “police.” This assignment covers the manner in which this shift occurred

“policemen of the world.” Using the Internet, research two (2) real-life
international incidents from the past five (5) years in which:

  • The U.S. used military action
    abroad.
  • Controversy existed within the American
    public regarding U.S. involvement.
  • Controversy existed within the country or
    countries affected by U.S. involvement.
