Durst: Blather About Bosnia

What does it mean that the UN has a Rapid Reaction Force in Bosnia that hasn't reacted to anything since they were created?
Now, we, (the good guys), are threatening the Serbs, (the bad guys, (we think)), with a substantial tongue lashing not to mention a very questionable International credit rating if they don't start doing the things we want them to. We're still not sure exactly what that is, except they got to stop killing the Muslims who admittedly would be trying to kill the Serbs first if they could only get their hands on some guns which they can't because we have slapped an arms embargo against the whole place. So what's really going on is: the Rapid Reaction Force isn't reacting rapidly, the Safe Areas aren't safe and people are dying because they can't get any guns. Oh, all right, it's all starting to make sense. Now if I can only figure out what the term "UN Peacekeepers" is supposed to mean.
