Kerry: It's worth dying for only if the U.N. says it is

From today's Washington Post article by Helen Dewar and Thomas Ricks, "Help of Allies Among Three Key Themes": Kerry's belief in working with allies runs so deep that he has maintained that the loss of American life can be better justified if it occurs in the course of a mission with international support. In 1994, discussing the possibility of U.S. troops being killed in Bosnia, he said, "If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no." http://
