31. Yes ClarkUeberAlles. The Rwandan civil war. Here you go.
"I read somewhere that he suggested to the military brass
that we go into rawanda too, does anybody know more about that?"

True.

"Colleagues and critics of Clark say the general's experience negotiating the Dayton Peace Accords changed him for good, transforming him from a military man into a general-diplomat who could never simply salute and follow orders again.

Another experience from that period, the unwillingness of the U.S. or United Nations (news - web sites) to intervene to stop the massacre of 800,000 people in the Rwandan civil war in 1995, seared in Clark a personal conviction to never let inaction have such grievous consequences again. To Clark's critics, this became proof of a tendency to let his personal moralism interfere with military policy."
