America's Foreign Policy
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     Conflict in Kosovo. War in Iraq. Famine in Uganda. World War I. World War II. Vietnam. Negotiations in Israel break down. Headlines cry of the turmoil in our world. How can these problems be solved? Do we need to fight wars? What is America's responsibility in the world? How does our foreign policy work to keep America safe?
 
2     The Department of State manages our foreign policy. It believes that if America is to be safe, the rest of the world must be secure and prosperous. To accomplish this mission, the Department sends ambassadors to one hundred eighty nations. Their primary goal is to maintain peaceful relationships and support democracy. Ambassadors are the first line of communication between America and the world. This helps us to be aware of problems that arise.
 
3     The United States also sends an ambassador to the United Nations. This organization works to keep peace in the world through arms control, promoting democracy, and enforcing human rights. Maintaining a presence in this organization helps us to work with other countries on conflicts that develop in the world.
