This paper examines the strategy formulation, coordination, and execution, that lead to NATO's war to save Kosovo. How the U.S. and NATO reached their goal cannot be described as perfectly executed, or even well thought out. In the end, when the dust settled the alliance was able to reverse most of the damage that Serbia had caused during the early stages of the war.
From the Paper:"Eshtain ( 2000) outlines a procedure for determining whether an armed conflict is a just war. The first part of the just war framework is devoted to determining whether or not a resort to war-or intervention-is justified. War, for example, should be fought only for a justifiable cause of substantial importance. The primary just cause in an era of nations and states is a nation's response to direct aggression. Protecting citizens from harm is a fundamental norm, and it scarcely counts as protection if no response is made when one's fellow citizens and women are being slaughtered, hounded, routed from their homes, and the like."
