The Persian Gulf War and its aftermath

Essay from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,00, University of Regensburg (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Hauptseminar US Foreign Policy, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: With the End of the Cold War, the world should become safer. But instead of a
more peaceful decade, the years following the Fall of the Berlin Wall were
characterized by the same issues as before, like international terrorism or the
endangered environment. More dangerously, new, more alarming problems emerged,
such as nuclear capability of rogue states and exceedingly brutal local rivalries, where
the most powerful nations of the world were seemingly helpless and sometimes
experienced a nightmare, like the UN mission in Somalia. The first crisis in the Post-
Cold War Era was the Persian Gulf War, where for the first time the U.S. President
was able to act without paying too much attention to Russia. On the other side, he was
aware of the need of consultation with other states. So Bush was wise enough to avoid
the same mistakes other American presidents had done before him, e.g. Lyndon
Johnson in the Vietnam War. Attention shall be given not only to the war`s aftermath,
neccessity and success but also to its significance for U.S. foreign policy at the
beginning of the Post-Cold War Era.
