That article was inspired by the Bosnian intervention because the war in Yugoslavia was interrupted repeatedly by outside intervention, and eventually an imposed settlement. What you’ve had in this region ever since is not peace, where people start repairing their homes and their lives, and making adjustments to the new territorial order left by the war. Instead, you have a situation of frozen war. If you look at the city of Sarajevo for example, you will see many buildings built with some European Union funding for some purpose or other, mostly useless, and you will not see the organic revival of life.
