"Slick made up his 'little war' to divert national attention from his personal life debacles to 'mass murder' by the Serbs."
******* Although one of the reasons, not the main reason. Others say that it was to get the Juanita Broderick rape story off of the frontpages of U.S. and world newspapers and he was lambasted by NPR's Frontline for doing nothing about the Rwandan genocide, so, he felt he couldn't allow something similar to happen on his "watch".
Either way, we would of went to the Balkans even if Clinton was never caught with the cigar or messing with the "Pages"...this was just a convenient time. The Balkan intrusion was planned as a strategy following the break up of the Soviet Union. So, the Serbs had to be demonized, so, the U.S. Administration at that time also brought Mujhadeen from Afghanistan to stir up trouble in Bosnia, Croatia to draw the Serbs into the fight. They just went a little overboard giving justification for us to enter the Balkans and thus you know the rest of the story.
He also desperately needed a healthy economy to keep his poll approval numbers up, that meant siding with the Muslims so that the Saudis and other ME oil-producers would continue to deliver cheap oil.
It is signficant to mention that Milosevic was in the process of getting into the banking business in the 80's. He came to New York to learn the business. While in NY the CIA approached him, and saw an opportunity to get control of the Balkans. They turned him from Banking and trained him in politics. He returned to Serbia, and instead of being friendly to the U.S. he was approached by the Serbian intelligentsia and thus became a nationalist.
So, beginning in the early 90's became the period of demonizing the Serbs......and they followed up very well as evidenced by the way they handled the U.S. insurgents.....It's a very complicated situation. Kosovo is a very good example of the hoax we designed during Clinton's period.
Liberals still stand by him.....the Albanians see him as their hero, no kidding....ie. "Bill Clinton Blvd". I was there for five years and they (Albanians) couldn't understand why I was so.....Anti-Clinton.
