USA Military Operations in Overseas . For a long period of time, the United States of America has been involved in military operations in overseas. This has implications to the economic conditions of the country, social conditions, environmental conditions, recourses, and political aspects. The reason as to why the country has been involved in these wars may be provided in two ways. In one hand, the United States is a super power which would not let its economic, political, and social security be threatened by another country or gang.
As a result of this the country is trying with all its resources to see to it that peace and security are maintained.
In conclusion, from the above arguments it can be seen that the arguments against United States overseas military operations out weigh those supporting it. In this case, the United States should stop invading other countries and use its military might and superiority in improving internal developments and economic growths (Makinen 64). As indicated earlier, a lot of resources are usually used during the war and the citizens and investors may be forced to feel the pitch as they will be taxed more than it is usually the case in order to service the war.

Additionally, families and friends of the military men who usually lose their lives in the battle fields like the case of Iraq and Afghanistan may feel that the government is not justified to send troops to invade another country in the name of fighting against terrorism. It should be noted that if the trend continues, there is a possibility that there will be the Third World War between the United States and its supporters and Arab countries and their supporters (Bruch & Austin 167).
