Gadaffi has declared a cease-fire after encompassing UN resolutions allowed all and any action other than occupation ........

Having witnessed Bosnia and Iraq and how it made civil war using an army impossible within a country ........

Is the slippery old tyrant going to turn Benghazi into a civil war zone using people (soldiers) in civvies outside of UN mandate now ........ ?

Or is he just rolling over ........  ?

Oh ..........

Could be my fault ........

I thought the UN put air cover over Bosnia and changed the situation on the ground ........

And nothing to do with who was right or wrong but just how it changed the balance ..........

Please advise ..........

From what I remember, they were all ground wars from the beginning.  There was also an UN arms embargo.  Talk to anyone living there at the time and the joke is that the only thing that changed was the price.

There were many plunders in the balkans, but still a much different situation than iraq.  Bosnia and Kosovo drew several hundred mujahideen during the war.  In iraq, they came in the thousands.

No .........

I just Googled it .........

It was Kosovo ........

The UN placed an air cover zone on the territory and basically bombed anything which looked like a Bosnian army presence  .......

And true to the Yanks it included farmers on tractors ...........   

Or collateral damage  ...........
