Quick question:

Bosnia and Iraq are two of the most recent countries where the U.S. and other countries have had to use military force to prevent ethnic violence. Major military operations were wrapped up in November of 1995, ten years ago. Military operations in Iraq are ongoing, but there's been no nation-wide combat for 2 years now.

Given the 8 year difference between the two, you'd think that Bosnia was further along in the process of normalization and democratic reform.

And you'd be wrong
