Using foreign military intervention

Synonyms:
Intervening internationally with military force
Implementation:
Obvious examples include: Bosnia, Kosovo, Somalia, Grenada. Israel has made many attacks within Lebanon. In 1996, the USA intervened in Lebanon, and France intervened in Central African Republic.
Counter Claim:
With regard to interventions in Liberia and Central African Republic, Africans complain of the total inability of the intervening foreign powers to listen to their needs and wishes. The interventions may do little to relieve people in distress. They may act against the views of people expressed through democratic elections in order to maintain the power of an undemocratic leader favourable to the intervening power and its former colonial ties.
