Since 1989, the U.S. military has been in- volved in a number of intrastate conflicts integrally related to ethnicity. These eth- nic conflicts have been devastating to those involved; the conflicts contributed to regional destabilization; and they have been assumed to breed international ter- rorism. Most saliently, they have virtually destroyed the hope of peace benefits that were predicted to accrue at the end of the Cold War.
