Flip side: If Bush had bombed and done the exact same way that Clinton did, the Cult of Personality on this board would be shouting off the rooftops that this was the right move and they supported it, Kosovo was of strategic importance to the United States, Milosovic was another Hitler and anyone who disagrees was either a bitter Go Pat, Goer or a DU Disruptor.
Anybody paying attention knew we were bombing the wrong side.

Milosevic was nothing more than a two-bit dictator who never invaded any country. Hitler wanted to rule the world. As Gen. Charles Boyd, USAF (Ret.) Former Deputy Commander in Chief, European Command said, "The Serbs are not fighting to conquer new territory, but to hold on to what was already theirs."
You also seem to put the entire blame on Milosevic without commenting on the role of the Bosnian Muslims, the ethnic Albanians in Kosovo (KLA, an army that was armed and trained by Osama bin Laden) and the fascist Croats. Tudjman was worst because he wished to continue his thoughts of Hitler's fascism against the Serbs, Jews and Gypsies, and Izetbegovic is undoubtedly the worse, for he slaughtered his own people in order to turn Bosnia into an Islamic state. "Muslims 'slaughter their own own people'" The Independent, (Also Toronto Star, 1992). "Serbs 'not guilty' of massacre," "The Sunday Times, 1 Oct. 1995.
Must continue later. I've run out of time, for now.
