: : 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!
: Yes, forcing families from their homes, and raping women along the way, and executing young men, can be considered self-defense...but not in my book.
Don: Albainians began fleeing their homes only after Clinton began bombing. Now, with NATO in charge, Serbs are fleeing their homes. If the Serbs were commiting genocide, so are the Albanians. In both cases, the homicide rate is about the same--in the hundreds. The cliams of rape I heard were isolated instances that were facilitated by the bombing.
