Abstract : Humanitarian intervention has been and will probably continue to be a common mission for U.S. forces. International law under the United Nations Charter provides for humanitarian intervention, which can be justified ethically and morally. Our current national policy on humanitarian intervention is consistent and provides linkage between the ends, ways and means. However, our national policy does not adequately address the long-term impact of using military resources on humanitarian intervention missions that do not support either our vital or our important national interest.
