Mr Blair seems to have acquired such a reputation for military intervention, that our fine Press are now "crediting" him with campaigns which were nothing to do with him. In recent weeks I have noticed two or three references to his intervening in Bosnia. At first I thought the journos concerned must have been thinking of Kosovo. However, this from the Scotsman leader, 2 Oct cannot possibly apply to Kosovo: "On the world stage, his tough stance on Bosnia stopped the Balkans degenerating into total genocide." Of course there is room for debate whether the UK, Europe, the US, the world could or should have done more in Bosnia 1992-96. The fact remains that NATO intervention in 1995, the Dayton negotiations, and the entire NATO-led IFOR mission all took place during the Major government, and before the General Election of 1 May, 1997. Nothing to do with Blair. Press will be crediting him with Normandy next. Mind you, it was always puzzling how he could say of himself, "No Prime Minister has been better served by His armed forces."
