The Impact of Globalization on U.S. Foreign Policy

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

For example, seemingly distant issues such as warming in the Polar Regions, outbreaks ***** bird flu in East Asia, or civil war ***** Iraq all ***** direct effects on U.S. policies. ***** policy in the United States has l*****g been torn between embracing the networked ***** that ***** makes possible and isolationist ***** that would attempt to divorce the nation from the world (***** 45). During the *****s, the nation's ***** policies were largely interactive, attempting to respond to events whose effects could ultimately spread ***** affect U.S. interests—such as conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, the Middle East, ***** ***** AIDS epidemic in Africa.

In more recent years the U.S.'s foreign ***** has still been very much ********** by globalization, though with notable difference that now the nation's foreign policy is no longer built on international consensus but is isolationist in its resolve. Though superfici*****y recent ***** ***** ***** seem to be ***** interested in ***** affairs—such as terrorism—policies have *****en devised *****out consideration for the o*****r major actors in international relations. This kind of isolationism creates the very real danger of ig*****ring the multitude ***** ways in which U.S. interests are actively affected by globalization and international relations.
