48. "Clinton tried to work within the International Community" is false

 

in regards to the 78 day bombing of Serbia.

He had congressional approval but said "there wasn't time" to seek UN approval. No UN approval for the bombing was ever granted. No evidence of genocide was found by the FBI and UN investigators after the war. You can verify all of that easily.

What many "liberals" don't know about the 78 day bombing of Serbia was that it was the first PNAC project.

Don't believe me. Click the following link:

Kosovo was a precedent for Iraq and Libya.

The reasons are explained here:

Backing up Globalization with Military Might
The U.S. and its NATO underlings undoubtedly will be vastly emboldened by their "success" in ensconcing themselves in Kosovo, Bosnia and the other remnants of Yugoslavia—Croatia, Slovenia and Macedonia. We can expect rapid steps to further fragment the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY). We can also expect the new mission of nuclear-armed NATO — intervening over so-called "humanitarian concerns" against sovereign nations—to be implemented elsewhere, with great speed, especially in the Caspian Sea/Caucuses areas of the former Soviet Union.

Burgeoning military alliances, with the U.S. at the helm, are likely to try intervening in a similar way against North Korea, China — any country refusing to be a "New World Order" colony by allowing its wealth and labor power to be plundered by the TNCs. The assault against Yugoslavia threw open the floodgates for new wars including wars of competition among the industrial powers, with nuclear weapons part of the equation.

President Bill Clinton recently praised NATO for its campaign in Kosovo saying the alliance could intervene elsewhere in Europe or in Africa to fight repression."We can do it now. We can do it tomorrow, if it is necessary, somewhere else," he told U.S. troops gathered at the Skopje, Macedonia airport. (1)

Given these scenarios, it is hardly surprising that Clinton and the leaders of the other NATO countries continue to glorify the aggression against Yugoslavia as "preventing a humanitarian catastrophe," "promoting democracy" and "keeping the peace "against a Hitler-like dictator who would not adhere to "peace" agreements. The public is being repeatedly assured that the means -the bombing of the people of Yugoslavia-were justified by the ends.>>MORE Click for a complete analysis of the PNAC Kosovo bombing and invasion>>

There is one thing that survives after the illegal 78 day bombing and invasion of Serbia: The US Military Base Camp Bondsteel (well it was built after our invasion)




By the way, are you familiar with the Rambouillet fiasco? Where US "Diplomats" added appendix b at the last minute? Even Henry Kissinger said it was too much. Imagine that.

But lots of people bought the lie that we were "helping people" by bombing people. And never even knew the real reasons for the war.
