WSJ: "Lessons of Srebrenica"

OpinionJournal : "If American policy makers want to avoid facing another Srebrenica on their watch, they must never let the U.N. determine the mission. Allowing the Europeans to 'take the lead' is also a bad idea. Above all, Srebrenica is what happens when Western policy makers reject taking pre-emptive measures against gathering dangers, so that by the time the dangers are obvious it is too late to do something.

It has become trendy in certain circles to speak of 'No More Srebrenicas,' as well as 'No More Rwandas' and 'No More Darfurs.' If these people really believe the slogan, then the policy to make it work already has a name. It's called the Bush Doctrine. "
