While we're ruminating about that, someone made a couple of points on McNeil-Lehrer (if that's what they still call it, maybe its successor).

First was that the majority of Germans favor intervening in Kosovo for humanitarian reasons, but a majority is against committing ground troops.

The second point was that none of the nineteen NATO countries has an individual economic stake in this intervention; they're hanging together based on humanitarian grounds.

I thought that was good.

Not even any oil.

When I was trying to understand Vietnam (never did) I figured there was an oil angle in there somewhere; wrong again, I guess. Imagine my surprise.
