Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All excellent questions.

About Power and infinite patience, I'm talking about a specific peace plan in 1992, not the dawdling that happened after that which allowed the killings. The three principals agreed to it. In fact, Karadzic was pushing hard for it since it would secure 51% of Bosnia for the Serb Republic.

James Baker and Samantha Power thought that you couldn't reward the aggression and ethnic cleansing which had already occurred in 1992. That's why the plan was killed. (Well, not because of power, but because of Baker, though Power concurred that the plan was highly beneficial for the Serbs).
