It's not a failure of your English. It's a failure of your logic. We are discussing here whether the US was initially predisposed to the breakup of Yugoslavia. The fact that they recognized the secessionists later while the KLA was being trained is not being disputed at all. This is the essence of my very first post on this subject.
You write: "I know that the training of the KLA came later - I mentioned it to support my thesis that the US has been supportive of secessionist movements throughout ex-Yugoslavia.""
How does that support your thesis if it came later AFTER the US recognized the new republics? It doesn't support your thesis at all.
"Europe, on the other hand was AGAINST recognition, except for Germany:"
I just linked to you in the previous post NY Times articles which showed that the US was AGAINST recognition even as the entire EC was for it.
Please explain to me why it benefits the US to refuse recognition even while Ireland and Norway elect to recognize?
