Balkans: November 8, 2003


Bosnia wants to win membership in NATO's club for nonmembers in 2004, so they've been stepping up to the plate. Bosnia's Muslim president is ready to send troops to Iraq and host US military bases on its territory, but Bosnian military chiefs would have to decide exactly what level of commitment they could offer by reviewing their capabilities over the next 10 days. 

At the end of October, Bosnian officials also offered to contribute troops to the new United Nations peacekeeping force in Liberia. If accepted, they would be Bosnia's first foreign military mission since its own war ended eight years ago. - Adam Geibel
