    In Retrospect, Should Clinton/U.S. have Bombed the Serbs to protect Muslims? (I think, as an American, this was a very bad move historically, geopolitical speaking if not an outright idiotic one).

    I don't like "in retrospect" ideas. If something is a mistake it will be apparent at that time.

    Yup. The Geopolitical effects of that decision were almost wholly positive.

    Re: In Retrospect, Should Clinton/U.S. have Bombed the Serbs to protect Muslims?

    What kind of question is this?

    Have the Bosnian Muslims caused any problems since then? Anything that would suggest once helping them was a mistake? Not that I am aware of ...

    Retrospect or not Clinton was wrong to bomb the Serbs.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Clinton helped slow down a genocide in progress and a massacre. Though I tend to be against US involvement in ethnic and sectarian conflicts, Clinton did the most pragmatic thing.
