What February 9th Sounded Like In 1994

February 9, 1994 this time. And this time again it's about the Balkans. Bosnia and U.S. intervention and demands Bosnian Serb guns move back from Sarajevo before air strikes take place. Another unstable region in the world at the time, taking years to put the pieces back.

Tom Fenton (CBS News): “The main proposal on the table gives the Serbs seven to ten days to pull their big guns back from Sarajevo or face air strikes. France and the United States are the leading proponents of action, but other nations are reluctantly coming around to their point of view. What needs to be decided now are the details, exactly when and how the air strikes would be ordered and what the targets would be. It’s a momentous decision for the alliance. If NATO does decide to act, this could be the first time the forty-four year old alliance has fired a shot in anger.”

And on February 9th the Moonie Washington Times reported "unnamed sources" close to the Rose Law firm in Little Rock, Arkansas where Hilary Rodham Clinton was a partner, shredded documents related to the Whitewater Development Corporation and that the shredded documents implicated the Clintons and James and Susan McDougall in the venture. No named witnesses, hearsay and Sun Myung Moon. Sounds really credible, right?

And so went February 9th.
