The Balkan quagmire

editor's note
American Thinker has hosted some debate about the Balkans, especially our Kosovo mission. The Balkans are a region that could fairly be described as rancorous. Partisans in the worldwide debate on the subject also generally are pasionate, and both sides have a deep sense of the injustice of the other.

The discussion in our pages was spirited to say the least. But it didn't persuade many readers, though each side generated emails and links approving of its partisans and denigrating the other side.

We don't like rancor so much, and like to see what few debates we host leading somewhere. Julia Gorin gave an apt name to my feelings about the debate. It was a "
Balkan Quagmire at American Thinker."

So we're not going to be publishing very much on the subject. At least until something new or compelling comes along.

Julia Gorin asked that AT publish a link to
her latest statement on the subject. As a farewell to the subject for awhile, we do.
