Liberals and Yugoslavia

April 02, 1993

While growing support for U.S. moral responsibility in Yugoslavia may motivate military response, this sort of action only clouds America's true security interests.

With Japanese technology and fissionable material, it would take scientists in that country little more than a lunch break to become a nuclear threat. The same may soon be said of Germany, North Korea and Iran, as the number of non-adherents to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is sure to increase exponentially.

Whether liberal or conservative, Americans need to concern themselves less with noble cause (such as Yugoslavia, Somalia, and Kuwait), and more with their own multiplying security threats.
