March, 1997, I think.

For those of you who live in/near Columbus, Ohio (anyone besides Tom?), here's an announcement.

Peace-keeping or Domination? 1. Roles of the U.S. military, NATO, and the U.N. 2. U.S. diplomatic initiatives (Lisbon settlements, Vance/Owen plans, Dayton accords, & Kosovo negotiations) 3. Ultimate objectives of U.S. policy (economic, military, & geopolitical)
