Remember that this was written in 2001 and addresses US policies begun under the first Bush. That policy survives 8 years of Clinton and 8 years of the second Bush. Why that is is something I can't deduce.
...the War on the balkans was inniciated by the USA.
'Prosecuted' would be better than 'initiated.' The European troops were there but not doing much. The slaughters were proceeding and the US grew impatient with the inaction of the Euro nations.
Well at first maddy was quite impatient with her own congress - that also wanted less action then her.
The military strength or weakness is not a thing freepers think much about - it’s dutyful US here and lazy EU there.
Surprisingly the world isn’t that simple - although I have to grant you that the actions against Milosevic would never have happened if the US didn’t grab the lead - it’s also tru that the US are actively taking the role to be a world super power with the attitude to allow no european super power next to it. (That’s what condi only recently said)
So there you are - you won the price. Now live with it.
