Running Head: POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD Assignment 2.2: Policemen of the World Sarah Thomason Dr. Donna Reeves American History after 1865 02/03/2018 1 POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD 2 The US military is one of the most active departments in the nation as well as in the entire world. Through its great efforts, acts of terrorism and other insecurity challenges are no longer a great threat. The American citizens do not expect so many attacks similar to the September 11 attack which killed several citizens, injured others, and destroyed property. Some of the current events which the military has participated in include “Operation New Dawn” which did replace “Operation Iraqi Freedom” this operation was meant to help rebuild the Iraq Republic after it was destroyed in the US military action to end the Saddam Hussein’s regime. “Operation Neptune Star” is another major current significant operation (Panzeri, 2014). This was done in Pakistan leading to the killing of the Al Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden. Bin Laden caused problems to many nations which include the bombing of the American Embassy in Kenya in 1998 and the American Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (Walt, 2002). The role played by this sector is great in the world. It ensures security in all nations. Thus, the US military is the world’s “police.” It has acted in ensuring peace and stability among various nations. This includes creating a politically stable environment where nations can grow their economies, improve in education and raise their economies through financial assistance ( Lewis, 2014). Through the establishment of strong strategies and policies, this world police has been successful in accomplishing most operations. Nevertheless, there was need to contain the manufacture of nuclear weapons in Iraqi. Following the September 11 attack, the United States became more concerned with finding the terrorist’s leader, Bin Laden (Walt, 2002). There was a need to end his reign due to the losses he had caused the world with frequent attacks. Operation New Dawn was started by George W. Bush, the 43rd US president of the United States of America. This policy was aimed at ending the extension of dangerous regimes which encouraged terrorist activities in the world. POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD 3 Under the leadership of president Saddam Hussein, Iraq was a place for harboring criminals. The US engaged military action in Iraqi to support democracy. Saddam’s dictatorship-era had to come to a standstill. These strategies are connected to the Marshall Plan. This is one of the most important documents in the US history. The Marshall Plan was established to allow the US to prevent the spread of the USSR communism policies to other nations. It involved the financial assistance of these nations to protect them in the cold war which USSR launched against them. The same strategy is applied in Iraqi to stop the spread of nations which support terrorists in the world. During the cold war, nations limited their support to other countries so that they can bend before their will. The US was not ready to see this happen, and as a result, the Marshall Plan came in to defend these poor states from falling into the hands of the dictators. “Operation Neptune Star” in Pakistan was initiated to stop the spreading terrorism activities in the world caused by the Al Qaeda group (Panzeri, 2014). The main aim was to arrest or kill the gang’s leader, Osama, which they achieved. They also intended to bring peace, strengthen the community, expand relationships, push forward democracy, and extend the US foreign policies in Pakistan. This policy was later on spearheaded by Barack Obama, the 44th US President. With Truman’s Doctrine foreign policy, the US was able to rebuild nations which were destroyed after the world war. This is a similar policy applied to the Pakistan situation except with a different name. The Doctrine suggested the provision of financial assistance to the affected nations to bring stability and rebuild the destroyed states (Lewis, 2014). The rising of the US as a superpower since the year 1865 has been facilitated by several factors. First, the increasing immigrant population. Immigrants bring with them diverse strategies and techniques to improve work in the US as well as ensuring a better future. Secondly, the capitalism policy has provided room for innovation. Individuals put on the effort to ensure that POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD 4 they develop. As a result, the US powers keep growing. The third factor is the availability of raw materials for industries. Becoming a superpower needs industrialization. There is need to possess most of the most significant resources in the world. Through this, the US is able to create weapons to strengthen the military to increase security. The US has taken part in several international policing roles since the Second World War. First, the Israel-Palestinian war. The US has been on the front line to help solve the crisis. By helping Israel stop the terrorist attacks by the Hamas group, the US has shown a great dedication. The second instance is the stopping of the civil war in the East African nation, Somalia. Several US peacekeeping forces have been sent to this region since the early 1990s to bring peace to the affected communities. In a third incidence, the Vietnamese war which is among the worst incidences in the world. This war was waged between the North (communist) and South (capitalist) Vietnam. The US provided aid to the south to prevent the spread of communism policies to South Vietnam between the year 1955 and 1975. The spread of communism to the south was fueled by the cold war. Initially, the USSR refused to support nations which did not welcome its communism policy. They limited their support so that they could agree with them. Preventing the supply of material was a strategy which most nations use in cold war. The North part of Vietnam adopted the policy and needed to spread it to the southern region. The US came in with the Truman’s Doctrine and The Marshall Plans to aid the south. Another important treaty is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It was started to stop the Soviet Union policies which were against capitalism. NATO has been able to accomplish several important missions in bring peace to the world. And thirdly, the signing of the executive order by President Donald Tramp which has given the AFRICOM adequate powers to act on the Somalia crisis in driving away the Islamic Terrorist group, Al- POLICEMEN OF THE WORLD 5 Shabab. Most of these strategies have been successful in places applied. For instance, Israel has been able withstand the terrorists attacks through being provided military armaments by the US (Blackwill, Gordon & Council on Foreign Relations, 2016). This has created a strong army to defend the community. The US as a superpower in the world has helped in ensuring that peace and security are not in vain. From the above incidences such as helping to end the reign of President Saddam Hussein who was a dictator, we learn that the US has a strong military which acts as the world’s police. From aiding the African nations like Somalia, helping Israel in dealing with the Hamas terrorist group, helping stop the South invasion by North Vietnam, to stopping the Union of Soviet’s dominance are also great military achievements. The US is a strong superpower due to various reasons which include large population which can supply adequate labor due to immigrants (Lewis, 2014). These people bring with them skills which help to boost the American economy. To be a superpower, you need resources, which the US has achieved. Treaties and strategies have often acted as thriving forces to facilitate US military actions on foreign nations. Such include the Marshall Plan and the Truman’s Doctrine. With advancement s in technology, terrorism is taking new ways. The US military also keeps growing to face any new criminal activities in the world for the safety of all. The US military containing the manufacturer of nuclear weapons does not help the US only, but it prevents the outbreak of wars in nations where such missiles can be launched if present. From the experience in the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bomb which brought to an end the Second World War, no other nation would love to experience the same (Ham, 2014).
