Today in History – December 14, 1995, The General Framework Agreement for Peace, widely known as Dayton Accords, was reached on November 21, 1995 and formally signed in Paris on December 14. The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the early 1990s was the worst conflict in Europe since 1945. The indecisiveness of the United Nations and NATO over the nature of the war and lack of common vision between the European Union and the United States prolonged the bloodshed. In late 1995, however, several developments on the ground and pressure from Congress provoked the US in to finally taking a determined lead and pushing for a military intervention. That intervention would be the NATO-led Implementation Force (IFOR).
