Bosnia: A Primer for Engagement and Disengagement
AIR WAR COLL MAXWELL AFB AL
Pagination or Media Count:
The conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina has proven to be one of the most troubling problems facing the world since the end of the cold war. From its origins in the 7th century to the headlines it makes in 1994, a solution to the crisis has not been found. The US Army estimated at least 400,000 troops would be required to stop the fighting between the Serbs, the Croats, and the Muslims. Additionally, the troops would be required to remain in country for one year in a peacekeeping role. Other solutions have been sought using a combination of UN Protection Forces UNPROFOR and NATO airpower. However, the problem with all military solutions is that once the military forces are removed, the conflict generally reemerges unless all sides have agreed to a binding solution. There can only be one lasting solution in this conflict and that must be a negotiated one agreed to by all three sides. Bosnia, Primer, Engagement, Disengagement.
