My memory of the incident isn't any better than yours, but I recall that the unprepared and underequipped Dutch troops announced that they were opening a camp to protect the Muslim refugees.
The camp filled up, and the Serbs saw it as a nice juicy target. They quickly overran the camp and the Dutch soldiers fled. 8000+ people massacred.
Though I believe that we backed the wrong side in the Balkans, that doesn't mean that I think we should have backed any side at all.
It may be true what you say about the Serbs protecting Christians, but I do know that the combatants in the Balkans know what soldiers they can mess with, and which ones they'd better friggin' not mess with.
Americans are in the latter group.

No one dares messing with Americans - but Americans are doing nothing that will require a decision for them to be messed with. Why would Albanians attack Americans if the Americans are letting them burn down Churches and kill Serbian children at will in Kosovo? Let alone use Kosovo as a white slavery transit hub? Not true all the time - in cases where Americans stood between the mob and a church the mob backed off but the Americans can't and don't wantto be in front of all those churches all the time. The brass wants to send their boys home alive and not have questions arise from letters describing how their child died protecting a church from an Albanian mob who are supposed to be the "good guys" we helped a few years ago.
