Seriously Awesome Article Series: Part 2

Didn't intend to turn this into a Saturday series, but I keep running across these good articles. It primarily focuses on multilateralism and military operations. Here's another one, this time from the Strategic Studies Institute. It's applicable to both resolutions. 

Since the end of the Cold War, the United States often has not  been able to obtain the cooperation it seeks from other nations, even  when applying its putative hegemonic weight-benignly through  providing economic, security, and prestige benefits to those who  cooperate, or coercively through applying punitive economic or  political sanctions, or wielding military power. Except in certain  specifically-defined post-September 11, 2001 (9/11), counterterrorism  projects, not very many countries have been all that ready to  coalesce under the U.S. banner-the "bandwagoning" response to  a hegemon's exertions of power. -Seyom Brown

Incidentally, I should be starting a three part series on research this coming week. Stay tuned!
