Thanks for this. It is interesting how Serbia, Christian and fiercely anti-nazi, was almost universally demonised, especially by Germany, before the attacks. Yugoslavia had no place in the new, non-USSR world, so was expendable. Is the world better, safer? Is Kosovo a great new member of the world community? Is Camp Bondsteel a beacon of democracy? I doubt it. We are now seeing Libya receiving the treatment, but it is a country has lots of oil, coastline, and MONEY which was destined to use for Africans. Now???

Your doubt about Libya being blamed for the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 is right on. As a former federal investigator, I have gathered overwhelming evidence that blame for Pan Am 103 bombing was shifted to Libya for political reasons. Evidence is at

And just why are not members of the former Clinton administration facing war crimes trials in the Hague?.
Collectively the attack on Yugoslavia was illegal in every sense of the word.
From the UN charter, international law, lack of US congressional approval, the violation of the NATO charter, the support of islamic fundamentalist terror....etc.
On a lower level the attack on the TV station was a war crime without any question.
Brute force to silence a brutalised nation.
It was cold blooded murder of Serb civilians.
But of course sadly for the Serbs their illegal and barbaric suffering was before the days of the widespread use of the internet, today they would have some voice. Then there was a complete news blackout from Serbia and nothing but the most dispicable and lying propaganda from the MsM and NATO re the detestable Jamie Shea.
700,000 ethnically cleansed Serbs still require justice and at least compensation.
The greatest war crime in Europe post 1945.
And NATO did it.
