Abstract:

The Bush and Clinton Administrations have both come on line to support increased US involvement in international peacekeeping. However, so far the stated committment has had little substance, and within the military establishment there has been little recognition of the possibility of action. Given the possibility of an unprecedented opportunity to affect the New World Order through a renewal of the visionary role of the United Nations, this paper looks at the need for clear national objectives transmitted into actional military doctrine and operational concepts.
