Please answer both of the questions in their respective text boxes which you can find below.
Issue Question 1:
1) You are national security advisor to the U.S. President. There has been growing tension between China and Nepal. Intelligence agencies advise that China is massing forces on Nepal's border, and communications intercepts suggest a plan that China may invade the country and integrate it into China. India approaches the United States and proposes the immediate deployment of a joint U.S.-Indian military force to deter a potential Chinese invasion. How would you advise the President to respond to the Indian proposal to defend Nepal with military force?
Issue Question 2:
2) Should the United States extend a permanent guarantee (via NATO enlargement) to Ukraine that the U.S. will go to war with Russia if Russia attacks Ukraine?
