WNC World Affairs Council - Great Decisions Series
19 Feb 2013
"The Intervention Calculus in US Foreign Policy"
19 February 2013
The U.S., for better or worse, is often seen as the world’s policeman. But the question of when to intervene in other nations' affairs with military force has long stymied American policymakers, from Afghanistan and Iraq to Libya and Syria. Why do we intervene in some conflicts and stand on the sidelines in others?
Presenter: Jerome Jones, a retired Air Force pilot and strategic planner served in a variety of command and staff positions during a 29-year military career. After moving to Asheville in 1994, Jerome served as an Assistant Buncombe County Manager and became a frequent lecturer at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and a guest commentator on national security affairs on local radio, television and newspaper outlets.
This is the third in a series of six weekly lectures (in February and March) in the Great Decisions Series hosted nationally by the Foreign Policy Association and sponsored locally by WNC WAC.
WAC members and UNCA student admitted free. $8.00 all others
