Quite a few Freepers understand that clinton fought that war on the wrong side. But I have yet to hear a single Republican politician or influential conservative pundit say it.
They remind me of the three monkeys. Hear no evil. See no evil. Shut your eyes and ignore it, and maybe it will go away.
Well, it won't go away, and if they agree to give Kosovo to Albania, it will only be the first step toward an effort to build Greater Albania in Europe.

Exactly.......Now, it seems the Bush administration has worked something out with Russia and China. Both said that they would not stand in the way of the independence.
Russia and China pledge not to block new Kosovo
Russia and China have told the US that they will not block the independence of Kosovo, the breakaway Serbian province, according to western diplomats.
Condoleezza Rice, US secretary of state, discussed the issue with Sergei Lavrov, Russian foreign minister, in Washington last week and was told Moscow would not stand in the way of independence, the officials said. Russia and China would probably abstain in a proposed UN resolution that would grant independence.
Kosovo, with its ethnic Albanian majority and Serb minority, has been a ward of the UN since Nato forces bombed Serbia to halt ethnic cleansing in 1999 and then took control of the province. But the debate has entered a new phase with the start of UN-brokered negotiations to decide Kosovo's final status."
The US and UK are pushing strongly for Serbia to accept that Kosovo will become independent, while Russia, which had previously worried that the province would set a precedent for its own republic of Chechnya, has scaled down its objections.
The officials, who asked not to be named, said the Bush administration had persuaded Moscow and Beijing that independence for the Serbian province was "unique" and would not set a precedent for Chechnya, or for the Chinese-claimed territories of Taiwan and Tibet.
However, analysts said some in Moscow wanted a better deal with Washington that might leave open the possibility of a Kosovo-type solution for other regions, including Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia, which is backed by Russia.
Last week Jack Straw, UK foreign secretary, said Kosovo's independence was "almost inevitable". But Philippe Douste-Blazy, his French counterpart, stuck closer to the European Union's official line by saying that the "negotiations should not be prejudged".

That's because all but a few of them were solidly in Clinton's corner. They bought the propaganda hook, line, and sinker.

I have heard Michael Savage vehemently discuss our Kosovo betrayal/blunder on air at least two times. He does a really great job of communicating the history of this thing
I'd like to see him tackle a campaign against the handover of Kosovo to al qaeda. With his broadcast reach, I'll bet he could turn up a lot of heat on the "beltway" a$$holes that are pushing for handover. Maybe he would tackle this if he heard from enough freepers.
I would like to see Bush veto any handover and grant authority to the Yugoslav army to resume operational juridiction in the province. With the Serbs tearing al qaeda a new a$$hole in Kosovo, this would create a 3rd front in the WOT and draw back a lot of the jihadist vermin from Iraq and Afghanistan to fight the Serbs.

Add me to that list. It still amazes me how Clark can brag about his "great victory" with a straight face....especially after 911.
