Leadership: January 9, 2000


UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has called for the 188 member states to draft a set of guidelines on when the world body should militarily intervene in a crisis. Critics had noted that the UN moved quickly into Kosovo and East Timor but has virtually ignored the Russian campaign in Chechnya. Smaller nations complain that the great powers are quick to send troops into small weak nations but will not subject themselves to the same standard. --Stephen V Cole
