In Civil Wars

(p.123) 6 In Civil Wars
Foreign Powers and Intervention in Armed Conflicts
Stanford University Press

This chapter explores a contemporary case, that of Ethiopia and Somalia, to show the dual role that the United States has played in international conflicts and civil wars that are linked through transnational rebellion. Intervention models should exhibit the mechanism behind interveners' decision making in civil wars that result in interstate conflicts. States with institutionalized economic ties have offered an unusual set of interveners with a greater incentive to become involved in civil wars. The persistence in the U.S. attitude toward international conflicts has been dramatic. Intervention in international conflicts has been associated with external actors' role in belligerents' civil wars. It is stated here that the threat posed by the adversaries of its regional allies to American interests has driven the U.S. choices of sides and alignments in conflicts.

Keywords:   civil wars, international conflicts, Ethiopia, Somalia, United States, transnational rebellion, intervention models
