TOPIC - U.S. global engagement and the military

The global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the U.S. at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of

posture overseas. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and
foreign assistance capabilities?
