Abstract : The end of the cold war and the emergence of the new world order with its instability, presents the United States with many new and complex challenges. The result of this instability has been a quantum increase in the number of peace enforcement operations required to restore peace and security around the world. This study defines peace enforcement and presents it in a context of how we may have to engage in it. It examines our current strategic policies and doctrine to see if we have sufficient guidance as to why and when we may engage in these operations. This paper also reviews our current resources to see if we have enough forces to participate in these operations.
