15 May 2004 -- The commander of NATO forces in southern Europe says the alliance's peacekeeping force in Kosovo is changing the way it conducts its missions in the aftermath of a serious outbreak of ethnic violence.
During a one-day visit on 15 May, Admiral Gregory Johnson said the 19,000-strong peacekeeping force is changing its way of patrolling and communicating with locals in the province.
He offered no other details on what the changes would entail. But he called on Kosovo's bitterly divided communities to help in the "healing process" and to work jointly in creating a multiethnic society.
In mid-March, ethnic Albanian rioters attacked Serbs in two days of unrest that killed 19 people and injured more than 900.
Folks..email Kim Willis of USAToday to provide a Humanitarian story for the Orthdox Diocese or Raska Serbian Cycling Challenges's Pedal in Peace Aug 2004 at KWillis@usatoday.com --- Thank You
Good luck. Because they sure as hell are going to need it.
Are there still people who believe officials and their array of recycled "buzz words?"
Even the German publication der Spiegel records instances last March where the KLA savages did their dirty work and the KFOR troops just stood and watched!!!!
I'm sure that he believes in his little black heart that 'healing' would be much more simple without those pesky serb hangers-on who insist on attempting to remain in their homes.
If I were NATO communication officer, I would issue stern warnning to Kosovo Albanian terrorists and their supporters and illustrate it with NATO - WE'LL JUST DO IT
