Today, HUMAN RIGHTS groups instituted suits against both the United States and Britain for the civilian casualties suffered by the French during the sneak attack on the French coast on June 6, 1944. In the dark of the night, without any prior warnings, elements of both the U.S. and British navies opened fire with their huge naval cannon upon German shore defenses. The bombardment ignored the possibility of inflicting grevious harm to civilians in the area.
Even worse, in the dark of the night, hundreds if not thousands of ALLIED planes dropped bombs on vital bridges and highways, all known to be close to civilian population centers.
In gross violation of both Freedom of SPEECH and of the PRESS, Allied authorities muzzled news outlets and prevent them from issuing news flashes that might have save civilian lives.
Amnesty International claims these HORRENDOUS WAR CRIMES have been hidden all to long.
Point taken! Then again, in 1944, only the Nazis and imperial Japan hated the US and wanted it to lose.
Today many in our own country do.
Serbia is a complicated issue, but America-bashing is all too prevalent. I remember Amnesty International’s relative silence regarding Saddam Hussein’s crimes.
The whole point of the attack was to detach Serbian territory from Serbia.
You've been told the point was to get rid of the local dictator, but you saw how easily that was done by an unarmed group demonstrating in dowtown Belgrade later on.
Clark and Clinton have got to go ~ we must show that we believe in the rule of law by cleaning up the Kosovo mess, and the Europeans will never execute these guys ~ just give 'em some jail time and then give them a night on the town before they are deported back home (maybe 10 years later).
