Chapter Summary

This chapter presents trends in US elites' opinions on the use of military force abroad in the period from the end of US military involvement in Vietnam in 1975 to 2004 during the 'war on terror'. American foreign policy has often included the use of military force in other nations. Between the end of the Vietnam War in 1975 and the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003, the US took military action with air strikes or troops in Lebanon, Grenada, Libya, Panama, Iraq, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. The longitudinal survey "American Public Opinion and United States Foreign Policy" has been conducted quadrennially since 1975 to "investigate the opinions and attitudes of the general public and a select group of opinion leaders (or elites) on matters relating to United States foreign policy.

Keywords:longitudinal survey; military force; US elites'
