Even to this day Serbs in Belgrade are dying at an alarming rate as the results of those beloved NATO air bombing that has left over after the war, even healthy born babies dont live very long in Belgrade. As the result of the bombing the spread of cancer has increased.

This is the kind of NATO that some are defending here.

I was visiting Serbia and Belgrade in 2003. The damage was still visible everywhere quite scary stuff to see it first hand.
Had conversation with many people and heard some horror stories.
Just amazing that no one was charged with war crimes for those atrocities.
Clinton, Blaire, Solana....they are all war criminals in my eyes.

In the center of Belgrade, you have buildings that were destroyed during the NATO bombing. They were left that way so the future generations never forget.

And I wouldn't say that the situation is that bad in Belgrade. I think it doesn't affect new born babies, but the people who lived during those times, causing them a serious health issues.

Not to mention there are still who knows how many unactivated bombs across Serbia and Montenegro.

You'd better be glad about Cp. Bondsteel that big old bear is growling hungry again...


Bear was always welcome in those parts of the world. Much more than those who dropped 14,000 depleted uranium and cluster bombs on schools, hospitals and killed 2000 people, all for the sake of building that Camp Bondsteel .

I like when someone enter discussion with solid arguments. Anything else constructive to add?
Do you support what NATO did in Yugoslavia?
What is slobydon by the way?

NATO agression in numbers :


When you uncork the bottle and all that. Regardless of the numbers, NATOs intervention stopped Serbian aggression in its tracks. Literally. NATO did the job the UN had tasked them to do. The aggression ended and peace was imposed.

NATO had no approval by UN Security Council, once again, I do not know why are you repeating 'UN has tasked them to do'.
That is absolutely incorrect.
It was an open agression on sovereign country, the same thing happened in Iraq and Lybia.
Those are facts.
Also, how can Serbia be an aggressor on its territory, protecting its sovereignity from separatists in Kosovo?
It was the rightful thing to do.
Do you think US would let separatists inTexas to ever use force in obtaining their goals?
And to get back to main reason for NATO agression, Camp Bondsteel, strategic US base, the largest in Balkans.
'Wag the Dog 'was just standard story (read genocide, rapes,blah blah) to justify said aggression.

So ethnic cleansing is just fine and dandy? I'm not saying that the KLA were saints, they could be every bit as brutal as the Serbs. However, the Serbs had the tanks and their version of ethnic cleansing was even more heavy-handed then their brothers had been in Croatia and Bosnia.

Sometimes I despair at people's blind observance to a made up world view. The past is well documented.

Try the following. If you don't like the source then look up the UN. If you don't like the UN then methinks you'll never move forward.

UN Resolution 1244
www.nato.int...

All UN Resolutions pertaining to Yugoslavia et al

Once again please open another topic if you want to discuss Bosnia and Croatia.
By the way, Croatia 1995, 'Oluja' ring a bell? 250,000 Serbs expelled from Croatia in 2 days.
In regards to Kosovo, ethnic cleansing has started a long before 1999, late 70' and early 80' Serbs were being expelled from Kosovo.
That is a time when Separatist movement for independent Kosovo step up.

Lol I made a topic about NATO agression on Yugoslavia and you want me to read NATO justification for agression on NATO website.

By the way Resolution 1244 was adopted on 10.06.1999. at the end of agression which started on 23.03. 1999.

The Air War in Kosovo which started in March, 1999 was based on Resolution 1199, not 1244.

(Source: US State Department)

and for history's sake, I found a very good timeline of events with the ebb and flow, as well as background events that were happening at the time and may have played some role with speed or type of reaction to Kosovo.

A Kosovo Chronology

Hope that helps a bit.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the links I gave were merely the UN Resolutions, as written. Within the narrative you'll see the detail, or perhaps you won't.

You can LOL as much as you want, but your statement that NATOs intervention to stop continued Serbian aggression (and aggression by all parties, to be fair), was illegal etc. is just wrong. The facts of the past are well documented. If you choose to ignore and create a completely different fantasy, then that's your affair I suppose.

Ah, yes, Operation Storm. What happened before that again? Oh yes, the attempt to build a Greater Serbia by expelling Croats in 1991. Of course, this is bringing up the possibility of a "But he did it first!" marathon...
