|Summary||The answer, from guests and host alike, is a resounding No. As Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic gained strength, NATO dithered, refusing even to lift the arms embargo on Bosnia. This show offers a remarkably prescient discussion of the possibilities. WFB: "Are you philosophically resolved to oppose any military venture that is not conclusive?" GS: "I personally am not." WFB: "I'm not either." GS: "I think it's a mistake of military doctrine if you look for victory in a situation where it's not really victory that you're seeking--it's interdiction." ... LR: "What we have are civilians who've been targeted en masse, driven from their homes, forced to leave areas they've inhabited for generations. I won't split hairs as to whether this is genocide or not, but it's a war against civilians."|
