May Topic for Great Decisions: Global Engagement and the Military

 Join Great Decisions for a discussion of: US Global Engagement and the Military.

Tsoldier-708711_640he global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the United States at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of its military. Some argue for an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to ensure security, while others call for a more assertive posture overseas. Some advocate for a restoration of American multilateral leadership and a strengthened role for diplomacy. Still others envision a restrained U.S. role, involving a more limited military. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and foreign assistance capabilities?

Great Decisions Monday, May 7 from 11:30 to 1:30 (brown-bag lunch) at Plymouth Congregational Church (916 W Prospect Rd, Fort Collins). Guest are welcome.
