Abstract:

This paper analyzed the propriety of military intervention in Bosnia- Hercegovina. Using four general categories of rationales security, influence, moral, and ideological, the author submits nine analytical questions to three strategies for the use of force 1 use of ground forces 2 use of air strikes and 3 imposition of the no-fly zone. The strategies were assessed in- terms of whether they would meet the military objectives inferred from the four rationales for intervention given the historical and military situation in Bosnia. The author concludes that they would not.
