Question:
What do the oil crises of the 1970s, the loss of the Vietnam War, and the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979 tell us about the limits of power of the United States abroad? Why didn’t our military might (we clearly possessed the most powerful and technologically advanced military in the world in the 1970s) help us? Do we face similar limits of power, as the lone remaining superpower, today?
