....an entire series of what anybody would call war crimes and that included bombing out the entire Serbian civilian infrastructure which is in total violation of Geneva conventions......bombing out the petrochemical plant at Pancevo and thus dumping hundreds of tons of toxic chemicals into the Danube......

By that measure, all of our strategic bombing campaigns in any conflict have been war crimes. It's always prudent to deny the oppostion movement, communication, and supplies. That would require taking out radio/TV stations, power plants, bridges, refineries, and fuel depots. Naturally, that's going to have a direct effect on civilian infrastructure and environment. I think we're just going to have to agree to disagree on this one. Strenuously.

I'm not asking a leading question or trying to goad you, I'd just like to inquire seriously: What's your opinion on Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings? Were they war crimes?

They assuredly would have gone into the books as such had Japan won WW-II....

But Kosovo is still a special case and a sort of an archetypal demokkkrat war. To my thinking everybody who was involved in it disgraced himself or herself and by rights the military careers of anybody who did anything other than resign a commission over it should have ended on Jan 20, 2001.

The U.S. military does not exist for the purpose of bombing innocent Christians for the benefit of narco-terrorists, savages, and white trash.
