Two years ago, the Dayton peace accords were signed, triggering the deployment of tens of thousands of NATO troops... many of them U.S. soldiers...which in turn soon brought an end to the fighting. But two years later, the goal of reuniting Bosnia is still unfulfilled and its three ethnic communities are still living in de facto separation. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from Sarajevo on what many in Bosnia see as the 'Americanization' of the foreign mission there. Analysts are now trying to determine if the change in the mission is a sign of long term commitment, or a desire to accomplish everything possible before the June 1998 deadline for U.S. troop withdrawal from Bosnia.
