“Twenty years ago the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, led by the United States, waged a relentless 78-day bombing campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, consisting of Serbia and Montenegro (March 24-June 10, 1999). This act of naked illegal aggression marked a significant turning point, not only for America and NATO but also for everyone else. The rules-based international order—and its two keystones, the principle of state sovereignty and of the rule of law itself—had been subverted in the name of an allegedly humanitarian ideology… a war was waged on a small independent nation, essentially because it refused foreign troops on its soil—the infamous Annex B from Rambouillet….
[T]he aggressors of 1999 and proponents of Kosovo’s independence in subsequent years have scoffed at the Serbs’ claim that Kosovo, with its many ancient monasteries and the site of the famous battle, represents not just any part of their country but its very heart and soul—“Serbia’s Jerusalem.” Such attitude betrays a cynical contempt for the essence of any true nation’s identity, which necessarily rests on its historical, moral and spiritual roots. Without such foundation, a people ceases to be a people and becomes but a random mob. That is precisely what both America and Western Europe are becoming, now, thanks to the very principles which were used to justify the Kosovo war.”

Its miles of tunnels, bunkers and base camps, dug deeply into the steep rock walls, had been part of a C.I.A.-financed complex built for the mujahedeen.” — New York Times, 2005
