About this Item

42 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.Due to a variety of forces, the interest in supplying U. S. ground forces in support of U. N. peacekeeping operations is at its lowest point since the end of the Cold War. The ignominious withdrawal of U. S. ground forces from Somalia in 1994 coupled with the relative success of U. S. airpower in recent conflicts such as ALLIED FORCE leaves a situation whereby the U. S. public views airpower as an acceptable panacea for solving these situations. Despite the limited validity of this belief, airpower might realistically be the only contribution that Congress is willing to authorize in a time when the military is stretched fighting terrorism and possibly sustaining a long-term commitment in Afghanistan and Iraq. Despite the fact that U. S. airpower will be involved in peace operations, the nature of intrastate conflict in the Post-Cold War era where peace operations are likely to occur is vastly different than the symmetrical threats the U. S. Air Force is most suited to fight. Based on this, several authors have questioned whether airpower is still relevant in these situations where it is difficult to distinguish combatants from non-combatants. More important for airpower strategists is how to effectively use airpower when political restraints limit the application of lethal force. Given that airpower is the only contribution the U. S. might be willing to make, how can airpower be used effectively in peace operations This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Due to a variety of forces, the interest in supplying U.S. ground forces in support of U.N. peacekeeping operations is at its lowest point since the end of the Cold War. The ignominious withdrawal of U.S. ground forces from Somalia in 1994 coupled with the relative success of U.S. airpower in recent conflicts such as ALLIED FORCE leaves a situation whereby the U.S. public views airpower as an "acceptable" panacea for solving these situations. Despite the limited validity of this belief, airpower might realistically be the only contribution that Congress is willing to authorize in a time when the military is stretched fighting terrorism and possibly sustaining a long-term commitment in Afghanistan and Iraq.
