I've served in korea for a year less than 30 miles from the DMZ, and was in Kosovo with the 1st wave of troops, i completely understand the risks involved.
however, when we bomb someone, it is perceived as the easy way around a difficult problem, it's as simple as that.
when did they sign the peace accord during the kosovo fiasco? when there was a credible threat that NATO was prepared to commit ground forces.
while i'm on inactive reserve now, i could easily be called up. hell yes that would suck
