Diss. 1 Provide a concise definition of National Security that cover clearly important interests of the United States. Make it clear whether interests (as opposed to threats) from outside the homeland would be included. In other words, do we have a national interest in Iraq oil and human suffering in Africa? You must respond to at least one student to get full credit. Grading is explained in the schedule of the syllabus. Feel free to use Google for finding ideas.
