Another prong of the global test

American soldiers fighting under the UN is acceptable. Otherwise, its "unequivocally" not permitted.

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."
