Kosovo was (and is) a legitimate portion of Serbia. The more numerous ethnic Albanians there were taking over, harassing and killing ethnic Serbs, refusing to pay their taxes, forming parallel government on a local scale and consolidating for a breakaway from Serbia. The Serb government cracked down on behalf of the ethnic Serbs in the area who were getting a raw deal from the muslims and this is what the hubbub was about. There was fighting and killing, but no genocide. No doubt that genocide was a definite possibility, given Milosovic's history, but what Clinton did was take the side of the rebels, bomb the legitimate government forces and give the muslims Kosovo. A lot of ethnic Serbs were forced to flee and leave their property over this. Given what we've seen of muslims over the last five years, do you really think that, in this case, the Serbs in Kosovo "had it coming"?

This is so right!
What I don't understand is that Clinton did this to help the muslims and 9/11 still happened. And the left says "Why do they hate us?" After our country essentially gave these pukes what they wanted, and we still don't take them on. We are in Iraq, but what about Iran and the rest? There seems to be no plan for that at all. I just don't get it. We need to fight to win, but what exactly is victory in Iraq? In the WOT? Why hasn't Bush been more clear? ARGHHH!
