Most literature produced in the past two decades on the prospects of intervention to prevent genocide can be summed up by a cliche ́: ‘‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’’1 In that context, a vital if imperfect corrective is provided by MARO: Mass Atrocity Response Operations; A Military Planning Handbook (henceforth, MARO), produced jointly by Harvard University and the US Army. Contrary to the na ̈ıve optimism of many past analyses, this report starts with the fact that, without feasible options, effective humanitarian military intervention is unlikely, if not impossible.
