The comparisons don't end there. The Balkans at least were in reasonable geographical proximity to Nato and, once the US lit a fire under them some consensus that thy should get off their collective asses. Nor were there excellent supply lines feeding both sides of the conflict. Here's some excellent and (what should be) some unnecessary advice. Stay the fuck out until a coalition that can usefully intervene, with a plan and opportunity to do it, exists.


And let's recall that in both Bosnia and Kosovo, the main force that might have aided the other side--Russia--didn't. it would have been a much different war if they had.

Whichever of a thousand groups we decide to back in Syria is not going to see all the other contenders fall over.
