Abstract : If the U.S. goal in Bosnia is regional stability, then national leaders could profitably examine a few relevant historical examples to use as models for viable U.S. policy. Post-World War II Germany, Korea, Haiti and the Persian Gulf provide excellent examples of previous U.S. commitments in regions where the U.S. national interest of regional stability was considered to be in jeopardy. In each of these places, the United States made long term commitments of its most vital national resources to ensure stability. If stability in the Balkan region is indeed a U.S. national interest, it will take a similar commitment in Bosnia to secure a lasting peace. This Strategic Research Project uses historical examples as basis for recommending a viable U.S. policy in Bosnia.
