: 1) We really can't have thugs like Serbia disrupting Europe. Even if there's a 1% chance that their little scruffle will spread into a broader war, we can't risk having the European market disrupted like that.

Who is we? who are you claiming to speak on behalf of?

: 2) Both sides (Serbia & Kosovo) are guilty of acting like monsters. Who cares if we bomb either!

Sides aresnt, people are - if 'the serbs' are monsters, it means some serbs are monsters, not all of them. That kind of collectivist thinking is what causes these wars.

: 3) Military action is good training, and serves to keep our all-volunteer military at a peak level.

training for military action? Kind of circular.

: 4) Serbia's made the US (alright, made Bill Clinton) look like a pathetic pansy for too long. Finally we're showing some cajones!

Better, youve recognise that US doesnt mean all people who happen o live there. But then you spiol it by saying "we're"
