The Rescue Mission: Assigning Guilt to a Chaotic Scene.
Procter, David E.
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v51 n3 p245-55 Sum 1987
Seeks to identify rhetorical distinctiveness of the rescue mission as a form of belligerency--examining presidential discourse justifying the 1985 Lebanon intervention, the 1965 Dominican intervention, and the 1983 Grenada intervention. Argues that the distinction is in guilt narrowly assigned to a chaotic scene and the concomitant call for limited military intervention as the agency to restore polluted American ideals. (NKA)
