1999-2009 war crime against serbien

Epilogue (or Intermission):

1331 GMT, 990610 -- NATO Secretary General Javier Solana has just announced NATO's formal decision to halt the bombing campaign against Yugoslavia after confirming the start of the Serb pullout from Kosovo. -- Stratfor

It has not yet dawned on Americans that we now own Kosovo and that what happens there is our responsibility. During his term as secretary of state, John Quincy Adams said, "Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will be America's heart, her benediction and her prayers. But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy." If you want to know why that was, just watch Kosovo.
-- Steve Chapman, The Chicago Tribune, June 10, 1999

NATO was successfully manipulated into waging a war on behalf of the KLA and its backers in the Albanian government. NATO is now learning that it is impossible not to take sides in a conflict. Unless it is now willing to combat the KLA and take complete and sole military and political control of the province, it has just handed control of Kosovo to a group no more nor less ethical and humane than Arkan's Tigers. NATO attempted to wage an even-handed humanitarian war to impose a peaceful tie between hostile camps engaged in a very messy, centuries-old blood feud. Now, too late, it learns what it stepped into. -- Stratfor, June 25, 1999

Update: 2256 GMT, 000411 Yugoslavia – Inter-ethnic violence flared in Kosovo over the last week with 10 reported murders reportedly linked to ethnic tensions. The murders included: four Serbs, four Roma, one Albanian and a 70 year-old Bosnian woman who was beaten to death by an Albanian mob. -- Stratfor, April 11, 2000

What are you doing to make sure our government never, ever does this again?
