HIS 105 ASSIGNMENT 3 NOTE: PLEASE USE AS A GUIDE OR REWRITE TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN Assignment 3: America as a Superpower The previous assignments focused on domestic matters in U.S. history. This last assignment explores America’s international role in recent decades. By the mid-20th century, the United States had become the dominant force in international relations. Some have argued that the United States’ military functions as the world’s “police.” This assignment covers the manner in which this shift occurred and the consequences the United States faces as a result of its status as “policeman of the world.” One can identify early steps this direction well before World War II, but in this paper focus on the period from the 1940s to the present. Examine the statement below and drawing from provided sources, present a paper with specific examples and arguments to demonstrate the validity of your position. Statement—in which you can take a pro or con position: • The American international “policing” role developed because of the Cold War, but now terrorists or any power having or trying to get weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are the potential targets of such a role. By examples from different decades since 1950, it is clear that the policing strategy was once essential but should be discarded as ineffective and counterproductive. (Or you can argue the opposite—that the policing strategy is more necessary than ever; or you can argue for a more moderate position.) Use specific examples—two from the Cold War years and two from the past two decades. After giving general consideration to your readings and your research, select one of the positions above as your position—your thesis. (Sometimes after doing more thorough research, you might choose the reverse position. This happens with critical thinking and inquiry. Your final paper might end up taking a different position than you originally envisioned.) Organize your paper as follows, handling these issues: 1. The position you choose or something close to it—will be the thesis statement in your opening paragraph. 2. To support your position, use four (4) specific examples from different decades between 1950 and the present. However, two (2) examples must be from the Cold War years (before 1991) and the other two (2) examples must be from the past twenty (20) years. 3. Explain why the opposing view is weak in comparison to yours. 4. Consider your life today: In what way does the history you have shown shape or impact issues in your workplace or desired profession? (This might be unclear at first since it is foreign policy. But, super-power status does inevitably provide advantages in a global economy.) Length: The paper should be 500-to-750 words in length. NOTE WRITER: ONLY USE SOURCE FROM THE LIST BELOW ONLY Research and References: You must use a MINIMUM of three sources; the Schultz textbook must be one of them. Your other two sources should be drawn from the list provided below. This is guided research, not open-ended Googling.

America plays a role in international peacekeeping and policy development. America plays a role in American global function when it comes to policing about Cold War and issues such as the effect of terrorism and other organizations that threaten the peacekeeping mission. Policing strategies were once essential in America since 1950, but in recent decades, such measures can be disregarded and considered counterproductive given the increasing issues of insecurity in the globe. This study examines the effectiveness of the policing as a role of America and how such measures have changed over the years.

The title of "The Globe's Superpower" has had significant adverse impacts on the US. Late 1991 marked the end of a 44 years geopolitical and economic war that involved the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republicans after which the forme
