  Kosovo War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kosovo's borders did not precisely match the areas of ethnic Albanian settlement in Yugoslavia (significant numbers of Albanians were left in the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia, while the far north of Kosovo remained largely ethnic Serbian).
Kosovo was the poorest part of Yugoslavia: in 1979 the average per capita income was $795, compared with the national average of $2,635 (and $5,315 in Slovenia).
Kosovo also demonstrated that even a high-tech force such as NATO could be thwarted by quite simple tactics, according to Wesley Clark and other NATO generals who analyzed these tactics a few years after the conflict.

One, in terms of partitioning and having an enclave in Kosovo, have you not at that point conceded diplomatically that ethnic cleansing works, because the larger goal, the inflated goal was, indeed, a protectorate for the return of the refugees to all of Kosovo.

 Remember Kosovo?, by Nebojsa Malic
Kosovo Serbs and other ethnic groups are targets of an organized, systematic Albanian campaign of ethnic cleansing, aimed at creating an ethnically pure, independent Albanian Kosovo.
Conceived, established and perpetuated by violence, the occupation of Kosovo is itself the greatest enemy of peace, liberty and prosperity in the southern Balkans.
It was Kosovo that made Iraq possible: both illegal, illegitimate wars resulting in equally illegal and illegitimate occupations, not to mention the toll in destroyed human lives and property, or the destruction of social and cultural heritage.

 The doubling of Kosovo's tragedy by NATO bombing - from "Kosovo War Poetry" by David Roberts   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The entire area of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is now, at the outset of the twenty-first century, one of immense human suffering and political uncertainty far worse than the situation before NATO flew in on its so-called humanitarian mission.
Instead, NATO demanded that Kosovo should be allowed a referendum on total independence and insisted that NATO forces should occupy both Kosovo and Serbia.
The war which NATO leaders claimed was humanitarian used the most advanced military technology to achieve a result that was simply barbaric.

 Standing Up Against the War Party- by Justin Raimondo
While it's quite popular, today — even fashionable — to be against the war, and to treat the administration's pre-war twisting of "intelligence" with disdain, you'll remember that — at the time — very few stood up against the war drum-beaters.
If all these newsmen were the chorus to the war cries of the neocons, then surely there must've been something to it — except there wasn't.
Americans had to turn to the "alternative" media to gain any real perspective on the War Party's outrageously obvious lies, which were being repeated on the front page of the New York Times and taken as gospel truth by the arbiters of the conventional wisdom.
