due week 7 and worth 70 points

after the civil war and by the mid-20th century, the united states had become the dominant force in international relations. some have argued that the united states' military functions as the world's "police." this task covers the manner in which this shift occurred and the consequences the united states faces as a result of its status as "policemen of the world." using the internet, research two (2) real-life international incidents from the past five (5) years in which:

the u.s. used military action abroad.
controversy existed within the american public regarding u.s. involvement.
controversy existed within the country or countries affected by u.s. involvement.
for the first part of this task you will create a thesis statement. a thesis statement is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your main idea to the reader. the body of the essay organizes the material you gather and present in support of your main idea. keep in mind that a thesis is an interpretation of a question or subject, not the subject itself.
