Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think they were giving Serbia a break.

  1. Based on what?

  2. Why do you focus only on the crimes of Serbia? All sides committed ethnic cleanisng, chauvinist escapades, practiced no contrition, no forgiveness, and what you call immature posturing. It may be that you didn't read of those from the other sides and never have been there to experience it yourself, but that's just what UpstateNY's article is about -- media presentation.

To stress one point: Iraq was NOT the first war of the West where the MSM went on a spin overdrive, it was only the first where wide percentages of the population saw through it. Even blatant propaganda lies like in the case of WMDs weren't unprecedented -- upthread, UpstateNY mentions the Curveball story of the Kosovo War, which involved not Britain but Germany.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
