Russell, Greg

This case study, created for the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, examines the implications of American success in Operation Desert Storm for U.S. foreign policy.

Bush declared, given the world a “rare opportunity” to move toward a historic period of cooperation … freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace?” Would America continue to be the world’s policeman under the auspices of the United Nations?
