Abstract:

Since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has been the sole superpower of the world. In concert with its allies, the United States has been able to act with relative impunity militarily around the globe. The most recent example of that unshackled military strategic freedom was the United States led NATO campaign, Allied Force, of 1999. The campaign was conducted against Serbia, despite the strenuous objections of nuclear capable Russia and China. This military freedom of action, in part, was possible because the United States has no military peer competitor.
