The primary reason the press downplayed (or in many cases, ignored) the thousands of innocent civilian casualties in Kosovo caused by U.S./Allied bombing was simply the fact that a Democrat was the President at the time, and the MSM was simply looking out for their man. The secondary reason is that we were waging war against a Christian country and helping Muslims/terrorists.

If instead a Republican President were in office at the time and the war was conducted in exactly the same manner the MSM would've taken every opportunity to emphasize the civilian dead, and we'd have been inundated with stories/pics of dead women and children non-stop.

Absolutely.

No UN mandate, no congressional approval. BJ Clintoon just decided to bomb them from 15,000 feet.

Bombed Christians, to let muslims win.

EU helped.

Clinton just went to war, on his own.

The MSM really confused the issue of who was who and who was doing what. I don't think I ever really got it straight. They did the same think during the Lebanese civil war, what with the Christian Phalangists and the Druse Militias, and of course Hex-balla.

The New Media has helped make things a lot clearer.
