Austin Bay discusses the Balkans inhis latest column. In 1995 and 1999, Bill Clinton took us to war in the Balkans because the Serbes were in the process of ethnic cleansing. Oh, and shooting down one F-16. Going after the Serbs was the right thing to do.
Compare that to Saddam Hussein's conduct from 1990-2003. Then ask yourself why those who favored going into the Balkans are so adamant that we should cut and run from Iraq.
