In the 2010 National Security Strategy, released on May 27, 2010, President Barack Obama wrote: ” ‘While the use of force is sometimes necessary, we will exhaust other options before war whenever we can, and carefully weigh the costs and risks of action against the costs and risks of inaction,’ he says. When it is necessary, he adds, ‘we will seek broad international support, working with such institutions as NATO and the U.N. Security Council.’ ”
