    The “Humanitarian War” In Yugoslavia Set the Stage for Subsequent “Humanitarian” Interventions In Libya, Syria and Other Nations

    The first “humanitarian war” in the post-Cold War era was in the Kosovo, Bosnia and Serbia regions of Yugoslavia (Croatia and Slovenia were regions of Yugoslavia which also played into the war).

    Wikipedia notes:

    Humanitarian bombing is a phrase referring to the 1999 NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (24 March – 10 June 1999) during the Kosovo War …. The closely related phrase humanitarian war appeared at the same time.

    Indeed, the war in Yugoslavia set the pattern for all subsequent “humanitarian wars” … in Libya, Syira, Nigeria (think Boko Haram), and elsewhere.
