What actually drove American policy over Kosovo continue to be a mystery. Was it a wag the dog campaign to drag out the impeachment of America's Nero? Were a flock of careerists in the State Department, CIA, and the Pentagon determined to cash in on the opportunities for promotion, decorations, and perks that a successful 'humanitarian intervention' would spawn. Or where the Elbonian drug traffickers providing large bribes to the right people in the Clinton Administration and in State and the CIA?
Whatever the reasons it is the strangest war we have ever fought without a sliver of national interest at stake.

Honestly, it's hard to understand how well the lid was put on it and it stayed. Even JFK has something going on and advocates of people that were important enough. We worred about a few people breaking into offices during Nixon's time, and not even one serious Senate investigation, not even attempt. They are still going after War Criminals for somewhat fabricated massacres that justified this massive "campaign".

I suspect that this "campaign" has a much rooted system linked to the efforts of the New World Order. It's incredible.............You did mention many of the reasons. However, I suspect the lid was put on in the beginning and since it was fabricated to a major extent, many holes were plugged. The Serbs did execute combatants and murder a number of people using the paramilitaries. However, no where near the extent that was claimed to justify our bombings. The Serbs have in fact been demonized unjustly.

Halfbright actually forced that war by demanding NATO troops in Serbia proper as well. The State Dept had several people testify to that effect. Exactly what was the point of all this?

And while we are on the subject of the complete ineptitude of the Clinton Administration, one could easily make the argument that Halfbright, Berger and Cohen ultimately made the Iraq war II inevitable. We had weapons inspectors monitoring most of Saddam's activities until the end of 1998 when those idiots decided to airstrike Baghdad over 1% of potential sites (and again there was no outrage from the libs over this).

I can't help but think it's a combination of many things, which is also why I can't dismiss the claim that Kosovo wasn't part of some liberal campaign against Christianity. In fact, looking back through Clinton's tenure, this was an administration that was increasingly hostile to Christians, viewing them as a greater threat than the obviously growing Islamic threat.

It was only a few months after the first WTC attack that our attentions were drawn from this Islamic threat (which was treated as a criminal act) to the much more dispicable (in the eyes of libs) fundys at Waco. Even the potential ME ties to the OKC bombing...and the Arab-looking John Doe, found little support as Right-Wing militias and white supremacists became the bigger enemy.

And just as in Kosovo and the rest of the Balkans, it was the Clinton Administration that chose to support the Muslim aggressors in Indonesia and E. Timor against the minority Christian population that was being slaughtered by the tens of thousands. Even after being made aware of these events, Clinton still allowed Indonesia to procure arms from this country.

Whether it was in the Balkans or Indonesia, Clinton was supplying and supporting Muslim governments (in vioation of some of our own embargos) who were killing and displacing Christians around the globe. There isn't a better example of this spite than looking at the WOT and seeing how Democrats attack Bush and other Republicans; they have more contempt and hatred for their political opponents than they do for those who want to destroy this nation. And as most good communists know, they must destroy this Faith, before they can ever control its followers.
