Make an argument explaining when U.S. military intervention in other countries is appropriate. Use real examples and document them with credible sources. Defend your position, including acknowledging the potential risks associated with your chosen scenario(s). Consider opposing viewpoints, and rebut them if necessary. Essays should be 750 words in length, not including repetition of the question or references.
Essays should be written in third person perspective. The goal is to create a scholarly argument by presenting a thesis statement and then providing evidence to support that position. “I think, I feel, I believe” and “in my opinion” should appear nowhere in the essay. Personal opinions are not necessary and may weaken your argument.
