War and Peace: U.S. Foreign Policy in a Changing World

S. pursue in a rapidly changing world is a source of much debate and discussion.  What is and should be the role of the U.S. in the world?  Is the U.S. the leader of the free world and thus the world’s cop?  Or, the U.S. is an empire in disguise?  Should the U.S. play a leading and more interventionist role in the world or should the U.S. be more isolationist and worry more about its domestic issues?  Should the U.S. prioritize diplomacy and accommodation or should it focus on projection of strength and military might? In answering some of these questions many argue that the world is marked by increased extremes and fundamentally opposing forces and as the world’s super power, the United States has the right and the responsibility to fight the forces and ideas that threatens democracy and freedom anywhere. In this fight use of military force remain as relevant as ever.  Thus, the U.S. should focus on increasing its military capabilities, including nuclear weapons.  On the other hand, many have argued that the United State’s involvement in world politics, particularly its use of military force, is causing more problems not only abroad but also for its own population. The U.S. should fundamentally alter its current foreign policy approaches and think of a new role for itself in world politics. The essay should develop an argument about the appropriate role of the U.S. in world politics and about the kind of foreign policy approaches that will benefit the U.S. population and will also contribute towards the peace and stability of the world.
