I am sick of hearing about "ethnic cleansing" and seeing hundreds of
thousands of lives being destroyed. Sick of stories of soldiers raping women
and girls in front of their families. You would think that after what
happened in Bosnia that people in the region would realize that they need to
learn to respect one another and live and work together.

How to you teach people not to rape, destroy, murder and hate? How do you
convince a miltary that is responsible for so much destruction in Bosnia and
shelters accused war criminals that they should not repeat their actions? How?
