Again, I see your point. As I recall, Slobo was an admitted thug whose strong-arming tactics got our NATO allies panties in a wad. I personally was opposed to the Kosovo intervention because I could see that the facts were being twisted so as to justify the alleged "war". At that time, I along with a number of other Freepers also saw that once the decision was made, the KLA was delisted as a terrorist organization by Madeleine Albright's State Department. As per usual, the media did not care and we bombed the snot out of the civilian infrastructure of Serbia, our former World War II allies. I would be interested in knowing if any of these signatories to this letter you cite had any observations in this regard.

Additionally, at this point in time, there were very few that recognize the Islamist threat that culminated in 9/11. Lastly, to state there is no "war on terror" based on this is less than genuine. For one may not like the way it is being waged due to self-imposed constraints is a bona fide gripe, however, the war is being waged. Richard Miniter is an author I would commend to you in this regard....

If you want a real eye-opener, do an internet search on the background of a group called the American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus (they used to be called the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya, and I suspect they changed the name when they started to get some unfavorable attention after the Beslan massacre). ACPC has actually sided with the Chechen separatists against the Russian government, and -- get this -- of all the names listed below that I've posted on this thread with regard to Kosovo, the ones in red bold text also appear on the ACPC membership list.
