from "ME" in the December 1995 Argo

"The decision to send troops to Bosnia is an emotional one and not something that should be taken lightly. The idea of sending Americans to an unstable country to become involved in a civil war is understandably frightening. The war is clearly over issues which are only of interest to the Bosnians themselves. Why place American lives in danger for a cause which does not affect us? I do not suggest that America should be the 'world's policeman' to go rushing in whenever and wherever conflict arises. I do, however, believe in that we have a responsibility as a member of the global community. We shoud not fight the wars of others, but we must teach those who wish to learn how to keep peace . . .
