November 22, 2010

War is over.

After three and a half years of one of the bloodiest, most vicious wars in recent memory, the war in Bosnia had reached a peace settlement. In an eleventh hour agreement, the warring sides agreed to end the conflict and established territories under the control of the various warring factions.

President Clinton: “About an hour ago I spoke with Secretary Christopher in Dayton Ohio. He informed me that the Presidents of Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia have reached a peace agreement to end the war in Bosnia. To end the worst conflict in Europe since World War 2.”

It also established a peace keeping force of which the U.S. contributed 20,000 troops to the region. The agreement would be signed in December and the slow return to peace began shortly after.

Here is a report of the initial response to acceptance of the settlement on November 21st and the follow up news and ramifications of the agreement from the 22nd.
