Abstract : In the current U.S. National Security Strategy of Engagement and Enlargement, global political stability and economic progress figure prominently. For the U.S., this strategy means an increased commitment to United Nations peace operations. Since the end of Desert Storm, our armed forces have conducted humanitarian missions in Bangladesh, Somalia, Florida, Hawaii, and Rwanda. They have also supplied a battalion sized unit to UNPROFOR's mission in Macedonia, restored democracy in Haiti, and fought combat actions in Somalia in an attempt to further UN goals for that nation. The involvement of U.S. armed forces in peace operations will probably continue. Peace operations are not new to the U.S. armed forces. American military observers participated in the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization in Israel as early as 1948. What is new is the growing size, frequency, and complexity of peace operations. Nearly all of these missions are expected to be conducted under United Nations auspices. In acknowledgment of the multinational nature of peace operations and in an attempt to establish more rigor and consistency for U.S. participation in them, Presidential Decision Directive 25, The Clinton Administration's Policy on Reforming Multilateral Peace Operations was issued in May, 1994.
