    Peace & Stability Journal Special Edition Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "With the United States the sole superpower, the mission of its Armed Forces would have to change to prepare for the next unpredictable challenge. One of those challenges, the humanitarian aid and peacekeeping effort in Somalia, came crashing into the world headfirst in 1992. This type of operation, called Military Operations Other than War (MOOTW), was greeted with mostly apprehension from most senior military officials. The military saw these types of missions as an exception rather than a common mission of the Army for the future. Others, especially General Gordon Sullivan, the Chief of Staff of the Army, saw them as a foreshadowing the missions that the United States would, more often than not, be engaged in."

Specifically, stability operations, as part of the Army’s decisive action, lack the clarity of a definitive relationship within the mosaic of building partner capacity, security cooperation, irregular warfare, counterinsurgency, security assistance, security force assistance and foreign internal defense."

Although it was hoped that UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security would result in a surge of women’s participation at all levels of peace processes and, de facto, at all levels of the UN, the gap between aspiration and action is still wide."

Expectations also include the social freedoms of economic opportunity, employment, education, health care, intellectual freedom, justice, and social mobility. Cultural form may vary by state, but the parameters of a modern social contract are clear and you need to look no further than the Arab Spring to see it..."

Among others, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Pakistan are some of the most high-profile sites of U.S. military operations. All feature insurgent groups tied to anti-West extremism, which employ mixtures of terrorism and guerrilla warfare to achieve their aims."

While not new in human history, the globalized environment of the 21st century make these issues more complex and interrelated. Broad access to information and global mobility informs populations of issues, internationalizes relative social progress, and empowers non-state actors. Informed populations demand more of their governments at home and abroad. Members of the greater international community respond to the plight of troubled states and their populations in various ways."

The primary stated objective of the attacks was the Protection of Civilians (PoC), and throughout its text UNSCR 1973 emphasizes PoC while authorizing Member States “to take all necessary measures…to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack…while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory….” A pre-existing debate intensified as to the objective(s) of these efforts; is the immediate protection of civilians sufficient, or is the ultimate removal of Muammar Qadhafi’s regime required?"

As Plato’s quote above reminds us, rule of law is not a new idea and historically it appears to have a degree of universality. For example, throughout Islamic history, the population and rulers alike were expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the word of God as recorded in the Qur’an (Koran) and the Prophet’s life as provided in the Sunnah and expressed in Sharia..."
