More flight woe

My nice quick connection via Munich has been cancelled. Luckily there’s another via Zurich, two hours later…

Edite to add it later turned out that this was all to protect President Bush.

    It would have needed to be in the context of a political plan. But it would probably have worked without quagmire-type problems; the Bosnian conflict was generally between semi-regular armies, dependent on external sponsors, rather than local irregulars with own resources, so it was quite different from the Asian cases. And the best proof of this is that really very little had changed between 1993 and 1995 when the intervention actually came; it’s therefore reasonable to assert that it could have been successful two (or with better international coordination three) years earlier.
