Humanitarian reasons for a war are as good as any. The U.S. has stayed out of other such situations, but when will someone say that enough is enough? There has to be a first time for everything, and now is the time for the United States to state something and stick with it.
There has always been, in history, a point in time when one action could have prevented a disaster. Stoping Hitler in Munich, Pushing the slavery issue in the Constitution, ect. I believe now is the time to prevent one man from extending his dictatorship.
If we don't show Milosevich actions will be taken against his acts of hostilities, he will continue to do as he wishes. Yes, NATO does control the airspace over Yugoslavia. Good. Maybe his losses will clue him in to reality.
People are people, and no one deserves to be driven from their home. Outrage and anger should be inspired by such actions. We need to help those people get their homes back, any way possible.
Most of the homes are gone, and thats a shame. We need to help them rebuild, and force Milocevich to do the same. No one should have to endure the things these people have gone through.
I would hate to see my father and brothers shot in front of me, and my home burned down. Warfare is one thing, but Total Warfare is quite another.
