Abstract:

At the end of the Cold War, President Bush proclaimed a New world order1 Considering this new order, many nations, too include the United States, thought the United Nations UN could play a larger role in solving world calamities and anarchic conditions This was especially true for UN peace-keeping operations While on the campaign trail, candidate Bill Clinton joined the chorus calling for a greater UN role in the post cold war era He suggested establishing a UN rapid deployment force2 that would stand guard at the border of countries threatened by aggression preventing mass violence against civilian populations and combating terrorism.3 His words produced images of a force similar to that in the above New York Times quote As one of the first acts of his administration, President Clinton set out to draft a United States U S peace-keeping policy in that view.
