PRESIDENT CLINTON: In fulfilling this mission we will have the chance to help stop the killing of innocent civilians, and especially children, and at the same time bring stability to central europe, a region of the world that is vital to our American interests.

BEFORE APPROVING ANY DEPLOYMENT THE PRESIDENT SAID THE MISSION MUST BE CLEARLY DEFINED... WITH GOALS TO BE ACHEIVED IN ABOUT ONE YEAR. RISKS MUST BE MINIMIZED.. WITH AN AMERICAN IN CHARGE AND OVERWHELMING POWER TO RESPOND.
BUT BOSNIA IS ANYTHING BUT RISK FREE.. THE PRESIDENT SAID CASULATIES ARE INEVITABLE.. AND GAVE THIS WARNING TO THOSE WHO WOULD TRY TO UPEND THE PEACE PROCESS.
PRESIDENT CLINTON: I assume full responsibility for any harm that may come to them. But anyone contemplating any action that would endanger our troops should know this: america protects it's own. anyone who takes on our troops will suffer the consequences. We will fight fire with fire and then some.

IN Q=Things like traveling

((TOM KINCAID/ROANOKE CO. POLICE: THINGS LIKE TRAVELING WITH COMPANIONS AND SHOPPING WITH FRIENDS INSTEAD OF BEING ALONE. MOST CRIMINALS LIKE TO FIND SOMEONE THAT'S BY THEMSELF TO TARGET AS THE VICTIM. THINGS LIKE NOT LEAVING PROPERTY UNATTENDED IN YOUR CAR. IF YOU ARE DOING YOUR SHOPPING MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR PURCHASES WITH YOU. DON'T GO BACK OUT TO THE CAR AND PUT THEM IN THE CAR WHERE A WOULD BE CRIMINAL COULD BE WORKING THROUGH THE PARKING LOT LOOKING FOR STUFF.))
