Abstract : In Operations Other Than War (OOTW) U.S. forces will be involved in armed conflict in what are called, ironically, 'peace operations'. The three peace missions, peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and peacemaking, are not a continuum in peace operations and hence the U.S. could find itself entering a situation where one type of peace operation can change quickly and unexpectedly to another type of peace mission. The U.S. has found itself entering into peace operations with questionable public support; the operation then takes a dramatic turn after perceived failure.
