Humanitarian Intervention

It's the threat or use of force across state borders by a state aimed at preventing or ending
widespread and grave violations of the
fundamental human rights of
individuals other than its own citizens,
without the permission of the state
within whose territory force is applied.
Humanitarian intervention involves the threat and use of military forces as a central feature
It is an intervention of a state by sending military forces into the territory or airspace into another sovereign state that has not committed any act of aggression against it.
The intervention is in response to situations that do not necessarily pose direct threats to states’ strategic interests, but instead is motivated by humanitarian objectives.

Usa made more than 60 interventions
