: Please don't be a jackass, SDF. I came to my beliefs in an objective way.

SDF: So where's the hard evidence?

: I read enough accounts of eyewitnesses from relief agencies, as well as the Kosavars themselves, to believe that "ethnic cleansing" and its concomitant atrocities were taking place.

SDF: Anecdotal evidence strung together in a biased way by a US media corps intent upon justifying a needless bombing any way they could. Just a glance at any link chosen at random on FAIR's Yugoslavia page will show this.

When the bombing started, the folks on the ground thought of it as WAR, regardless of whether any "mainstream liberals" experienced it as such. "Ethnic cleansing"? Maybe the Serbs were guilty of fighting back? How dare they!
