      In fact, of the over military interventions carried out by the U.S. since , only five have been declared wars. 24 In the post-Cold War world, the U.S. military must be prepared for all. But a number of US interventions in recent decades have been authorized by the United Nations: Kuwait , Somalia , Haiti , Bosnia Some others have been authorized by a regional alliance, such as NATO: Kosovo , Libya China and Russia each have a veto in the United Nations, and it can be difficult to secure their agreement.

    Intervention in armed conflicts is full of riddles that await attention from scholars and policymakers. This book argues that rethinking intervention-redefining what it is and why foreign powers take an interest in others' conflicts-is of critical importance to understanding how conflicts evolve over time with the entry and exit of external actors.   As a sovereign nation with formidable military power, it is tempting to think that the United States can “go at it alone” and undertake humanitarian military interventions by itself. The idea is flawed, but it is crucial to understand its genesis and development and why some people still embrace it.

    Foreign Intervention in Africa chronicles the foreign political and military interventions in Africa during the periods of decolonization () and the Cold War (), as well as during the periods of state collapse () and the "global war on terror" ().Cited by:   Although the U.S. military has been in a continuous state of war over the past 15 years, few in Congress have ever weighed in publicly on the wisdom or folly of any particular foreign conflict. Some now interpret Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty or United Nations Security Council resolutions as obligating the United States to wage war.
