Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, Jackson refused the deployment. Read the BBC report.

The occupation of the airport was an aggressive move by Russia after they felt they had been double-crossed in the negotiations. Clark wanted to prevent it. The WW3 part is a personal estimation of Jackson that the situation would get out of hand. Clark and Solana had a different view. But the troops in the area were mainly British.
