Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My own opinion based on both the Yugoslav and the Libyan experiences is that either you intervene in full force to stop the conflict, or you don't intervene at all. Either way a lot of people are going to get killed. But coming in and slowing down the killing without resolving it just condemns people to a war of attrition (and the same number of deaths).

I distribute. You re-distribute. He gives your hard-earned money to lazy scroungers. -- JakeS
