I admit I don't feel like reading 700+ pages long document. I've just flipped through it and didn't find anything relevant to my question, e.g. statement by NATO commander like "We are going to attack Yugoslavia because .... based on article XY of the NATO contract". Speaking about WtD movie, I used more like joke (though as I wrote before, it surely resembles Clinton/Levinski situation), I'll try to use more smiley icons from now on :wink: . Let's not kid ourselves, NATO is led by the USA, European military forces are pretty much laughable. If I remember correctly, despite the battlefield was in Europe, it was the USA who provided most of the planes and missiles, not the European NATO members. Speaking about UN, was the bombing even sanctioned by UN? I admit I don't remember this but I think Russia would have vetoed the mission. There's no doubt travel is rather enlightening experience but I don't think it is relevant in this thread. Even if one visited Kosovo and have spoken to local Albanians, there's no guarantee they were telling the truth. Besides, not all of us have a list of our journeys in our web forums's signatures. So what do you say about opinions of McKenzie or Dienstbier? So you say there's absolutely no truth to these statement, like Clinton wanting to divert attention, Kosovo Albanians being heavily involved with drug trafficking and terror acts (on Kosovo Serbs and Gypsies), the USA not caring at all about its image in the eyes of Muslims, .... The reason why I (somewhat) used the comparison to Iraq was to show one shouldn't trust intel like that, whether it's WMD in IRAQ or 100,000 military-aged men missing in Kosovo. And when we're speaking about Iraq, I don't follow situation there closely, so my only opinion is that I don't think it's a good idea to withdraw occupational forces anytime soon. Anyway, I'm done with this topic, with my very limited knowledge of English, it's extremely difficult for me to engage in any serious deep debate. I thought it would be a good exercise, but it's (still) way over my head, I need to go back to my textbooks.
