: : : I followed the events in Kosovo very closely and am convinced that mass rape and torture and murder occurred.

: : SDF: Having believed that in the first place, your suspicions were confirmed when... you repeated such suspicions of yours over and over again like a mantra?

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

Don: By listening to the propaganda cranked out by Clinton, Blair, et al.

: : Look, I scoured the Internet, all the anti-Serb web pages, for evidence of what you claim, during and immediately after the war against Serbia. We had a little debate within the Green Party about just what you claim. I found NOTHING. I'm sure we'd all like to know what you found that I didn't. How about some 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.

Don: Albanians, not "Kosavars". Kosovo is home to various ethnic groups, of which Albanians are but one. It is now crystal clear that mass murder did NOT occur. Most people fled their homes AFTER the bombing began (now, under the 'protection' of NATO, Serbs are fleeing THEIR homes). The reports of rape I saw were clearly isolated instances (certainly not like the mass rape of Germans by the Red Army at the close of WW2). There have been reports of Albanians raping Serbs since NATO took over.
