: As many people said, an airwar cannot win a war. This is true, and is not disputed. The U.S. is conducting an air war at the moment, and this is going to gain them no ground.

True, the only way an air war wins is if the other side gives in, or if the air war destroys almost every facility, much more difficult than it may sound on CNN.

: Ground forces should, and will, I believe, be implamented. An air war cannot get these poor people home.

Should they? Do the lives of US soldiers belong to you, to the 'poor people'. If they volunteer to go then, taken only from the view of the soldier, yes. Incidently, would you risk being shot dead in a Serb battle? I do mean dead, as in not coming back.

: if we go in with troops, we will crush the Serbs.

More than likely, it would be more difficult than Iraq, but the results would be similar. Lets make lots of body bags, then show off how we needed 10 for them, to every one for us.

: To address the Russians, I believe they only want to get involved to feel important. Their society is going to hell (yes, it is our fault)

Yes, they (the govt, not the russian people) do probably feel impotent. No it wasnt 'our' fault.
