Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And in any event, the comparisons are invalid. Irak was a war started by the Americans. The wars of the Yugoslav succession were not. And, in many important ways (not least on the diplomatic front) they were egged on by major EU players.

Confused here: is the holding up of the US example in Irak supposed to therefore excuse the German pattern of essentially starting a war and then refusing to participate in it?
