***** Impact of Globalization on U.S. Foreign Policy

Globalizati***** has had significant effects on U.S. foreign policy since 1990. Globalization is something ***** a catchall word, referring to a wide ********** of circumstances and conditions in international relations. Most notably, and perhaps most importantly, globalization interconnects the United States with distant parts of the world. Events throughout the *****, seemingly insignificant, can have powerful contagion reactions in the United *****, dramatically affect*****g foreign policy (Howell 45).

***** example, seemingly distant issues such as warming in the Polar Regions, outbreaks of bird flu ***** E*****t Asia, or civil war in Iraq all ***** direct ***** on U.S. policies. Foreign policy ***** the ***** States has l*****g been torn between embracing the networked world that ***** makes possible and isolationist ***** ***** would attempt to divorce the nation from ***** world (***** 45). During the 1990s, the nation's ***** policies were largely interactive, attempting ***** respond to events whose effects could ultimately spread to affect U.S. interests—such as conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, the Middle East, ***** the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

In more recent years ***** U.S.'s foreign policy has still been very much affected by globalization, though with notable difference that now the nation's foreign ***** is no longer built on international consensus but is isolationist in its resolve. Though superfici*****y recent ***** policy would seem to be ***** interested in world affairs—such as terrorism—policies have been devised without consideration for the other major actors in *****ternational relations. This kind of isolationism creates the very real danger of ignoring the multitude of ways in which U.S. *****terests are actively ***** by globalization and international relations.
