While Russia increases patrols in the Atlantic and the Pacific, Iran and North Korea make threats to sink U.S. ships and Iraq is engulfed by violence, what factors should determine U.S. military intervention? With an eye on the U.S. military's involvement in areas of civil conflict, Admiral Gary Roughead, chief of naval operations from 2007 to 2011, will discuss current and past conflict regions where the U.S. was asked to intervene and assist. From Bosnia and Herzegovina, Rwanda to Ukraine, where has the U.S. been involved or specifically chosen not to get involved? How do these past interventions influence present actions?
