How to use "Intervening" in context?

Inherent in the idea of intervening is the presumption that something is wrong - that a problem exists that needs to be addressed. Over time, this presumption has been used as a justification for the United States military interventions in Central America in the 1980s, the Balkans in the 1990s, and most recently, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Despite the compelling arguments for intervening, intervening often exacerbates problems in the target country and often creates new ones. The intervention in Afghanistan, for example, has created chaos there, which has allowed the Taliban to regroup and gain strength. The intervention in Iraq has led to the rise of ISIS and other terrorist organizations.
