In a recent op-ed for The Christian Science Monitor, Professor P. Edward Haley writes: "As policymakers in Europe, the United States, the Gulf states, Turkey, and the Arab League search for ways to resolve the conflict in Syria, they should consider what the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo have to teach about outside intervention.
