President Clinton addressed the nation on his decision to commit

U.S. military forces to a NATO mission to launch an air campaign

against Serbian forces in Yugoslavia. He said that the goal of the

campaign was to prove the resolve of NATO and Europe, end "ethnic

cleansing" in Kosovo, and to diminish the capability of Serbian

forces. He referred to the history of the region, noting that

inaction prior to World War I and World War II had immersed the globe

in war. He then warned that inaction posed the threat that President

Milosevic could embroil the region in conflict, while action

presented the possibility of peace. close
