NATO bombed Serbia to end the war

Human Rights Watch has found that there were ninety separate incidents involving civilian deaths during the seventy-eight day bombing campaign. Some 500 Yugoslav civilians are known to have died in these incidents.

Targets included the headquarters of Serb Radio and Television in Belgrade, the New Belgrade heating plant, and seven bridges that were neither on major transportation routes nor had other military functions.

Thirty-three incidents occurred as a result of attacks on targets in densely populated urban areas (including six in Belgrade).

Cluster bombs and Uranium tipped weapons were also used, in violation of international law.

The entire bombing campaign itself was not only a violation of international law but a violation of Yugoslavia's sovereignty and national borders.

Serbia has violated the rights of ethnic Kosovar Albanians, banned their culture, language, etc. And now they are whining 'It wasn't meeee, it's the other guy'. Making up bullying excuses again.

Serbia had better CAN IT. their persecutions, ethnic cleansings and misrule have proven that they are unfit to govern Kosovo. Kosovo is an independent nation. Leave them alone!

These groups have been fighting among themselves for centuries, even while they were all nominally under Ottoman rule. They share this achingly beautiful land but cannot live peacefully with each other. Just remember this most recent flareup of antagonism stems from a dispute over license plates, what license plates are allowed on either side of the Kosovo/Serbia border. Nations that want to live in peace do not make military threats over matters so trivial. Instead any slight becomes a reason to take up arms and do violence to their neighbor. There is only so much the US, EU or UN can do.

I guess Belgrade didn't get its ass kicked bad enough last time.

That's A fixable problem.
