  •  Nope (5+ / 0-)

    A European problem.  

    I'll see you a Kosovo and raise you a Rwanda.

    •  Rwanda was a disperse massacre with hand-held (0+ / 0-)

      weapons devoid of high-tech targets.  We would have had to use troops. Plus, after the Somalia mess, we were reluctant to enter Rwanda.

      •  Well there you are (4+ / 0-)

        Selective intervention, based on what?  The type of weapons used?

        •  Whether it puts American in danger (0+ / 0-)

          is a large consideration.  Combat deaths: Libya - none, Kosovo - none, Syria - probably none.  

          Rwanda would have been a close up war with casualties, IMO.
