Everything you need to know about Kosovo*
* But CNN was too busy showing you military
briefings and automobile ads to tell you...
"White House officials...said the bombing of Yugoslavia
would continue unabated until President Stobodan Milosevic
had bent to allied demands."
The New York Times - May 4, 1999
And what *exactly* are these demands - assuming that
the German Foreign Office's March 11 assessment
that there is no official persecution (let alone
genocide) of Albanians in Kosovo is correct?

These are the demands Milosevic has refused:
7. NATO personnel shall be immune from any form of arrest,
investigation, or detention by the authorities in the FRY (Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia.)
8. NATO personnel shall enjoy... free and unrestricted passage and
unimpeded access throughout the FRY including associated airspace and
11. NATO is granted the use of airports, roads, rails and ports
15. [NATO shall have] the right to use all of the electromagnetic

In other words, in order to "bring peace" to the internal
affairs of a sovereign country, NATO proposed a total military
occupation of the entire Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
For refusing this, the country is being bombed back
to the stone age.
And who are the "freedom fighters" fighting the "civil war"
against the elected government of Yugoslavia that precipitated
The Kosovo Liberation Army: 1) classified as a terrorist organization
by the US State Department as recently as 1997, 2) reported
to be a major player in the European heroin trade by
Interpol, and 3) reputed by independent press to engage
in acts of terror against civilians of all enthic backgrounds
As journalist Sam Smith points out http://prorev.com,
the KLA is a group that was illegal to for US citizens
to send contributions to not long ago. Now they're
raising troops on US soil with the help of millions
of dollars worth of free PR from the AP, the New York Times,
and other equally braindead news outfits.
Let's see... drugs, terrorism, criminal membership,
front page support from the AP, the New York Times
and the DoD...couldn't be a CIA project, could it?
Nah. The CIA has never organized and funded
gangster insurgents with drug money and mainstream
media support. Right? Just in Nicaragua, and Southeast
Asia, and Afganistan, and Bolivia, and...
By the way, Serbs, Gypsies, Serb Muslims, as well as
ethnic Albanians have been made refugees by NATO's
assault. Why do we ONLY hear about Albanian refugees?
Tens of thousands of members of other ethhic groups
have been made homeless and impoverished by NATO
bombing in Yugoslavia as well. Why isn't that news?
