A similar point was made, albeit more weakly, by Yale professor Paul Kahn after the NATO conflict in Kosovo. Kahn found it extremely odd that in a campaign supposedly concerned with the Kosovars' human rights, it was deemed altogether unacceptable to risk the life of even a single NATO soldier in saving those same Kosovars. But, Kahn asked, if human rights are about the fundamental equality of all persons as such, how can one justify such obvious discounting of the lives one is supposedly so concerned about?

In Kosovo, Kahn said, NATO forces should have been willing to intervene even at the risk of losing some of their own lives if they were truly so committed to the notion that Kosovars are fully human. Kahn said that such willingness to sacrifice on the field of battle is an act of remaking the boundaries of community. It is like Kennedy saying that he too is a Berliner, only this time one would be saying "Kosovar" or "Jew" or "Palestinian," depending of course on the specifics of the case.
Kahn affirmed a community of human equality between the Kosovars and the NATO troops, presumably because he felt that the Kosovars in this situation were in the right.
