The new development also further roils Congressional waters, says Michaels. Repeating President Clinton's bottom line today, Christopher told the Balkan leaders that "the United States will not send troops where there is no peace to keep." Michaels reports: "Without a Tudjman presence in the peace, we simply won't know what to do with our 20,000 American soldiers over there. The danger will not be what's in front of them, but what's behind them. You can be sure that Congress will not like it."
