Bill Clinton says there was no justification for the Serbs to
“abduct” three U.S. servicemen wearing United Nations colors in
Macedonia.

This statement, so Clintonesque in its phony authoritativeness, isn’t
even flying in the United States, let alone Belgrade. What are the Serbs
supposed to do — sit there while U.S. bombs fall on their cities and
vital infrastructure and not fight back? Is that what Bill Clinton
honestly expected?

Never has this sociopathic president been so obviously out of touch
with reality than in this dirty little Serbian war of his. This is a new
low — even for a president who has diminished the office he holds
beyond our nation’s wildest imagination.

Just ponder the incongruity of this action by the NATO forces:

  • Remember the Bosnia crisis a couple years ago? The big problem
    there was the Bosnian Serbs wanted independence. The U.S., NATO, and the
    U.N. said no, while supporting limited military actions to prevent the
    Serbs from advancing on their goals for autonomy. In Kosovo, ethnic
    Albanians want independence from the Serbs. We said yes — and even went
    to war to support their bid for self-determination. Now what’s the
    difference? Is it only Serb independence movements we oppose? Is it only
    radical Islamic independence movements we support? What’s the principle
    for which we are fighting?

  • Slobodan Milosevic is the bad guy in this war. But a couple years
    ago, Bill Clinton, NATO and the U.N. were propping up the unpopular
    Milosevic as a force for peace in the region. Now he is a “war
    criminal.” Isn’t this a perfect illustration of why the U.S. has no
    business interfering in the complex religious and cultural wars that
    have been plaguing the Balkans for the last 600 years?

  • The U.S. has depleted all but some 150 cruise missiles in the
    haphazard and ineffectual bombing campaign against Serbia. No more
    cruise missiles are being produced today, as WorldNetDaily columnist
    Charles Smith reported first on March 29. It will be another two years
    before any more come off the assembly line — should they start gearing
    up right now. That leaves the U.S. extremely vulnerable to another
    offensive somewhere in the world between now and then. It could be
    Korea. It could be Iraq. It could be Taiwan. The old reliable cruise
    missiles, upon which our military has relied so heavily in recent years,
    are under ration, thanks to the poor planning of the Clinton
    administration.

  • For the first time in the history of the world, a non-governmental
    organization — or NGO, as the United Nations is fond of calling them –
    has attacked a sovereign nation, not to stop a war between two
    countries, but to enforce its will in a country’s internal struggles.
    Think about it: NATO is not elected by anyone. It is supposed to be an
    alliance of nations sworn to protect one another if any member is
    attacked. None of the nations involved in the Balkans war is a member.
    Yet NATO has exceeded its charter and decided to wage war with a
    sovereign nation that was not threatening any of its members.

  • Many of the same Americans who opposed the Vietnam war so
    passionately 30 years ago because it was a “civil war” are just as
    passionately defending Bill Clinton’s actions in Serbia. Clinton himself
    was a draft dodger during the Vietnam conflict. Now he is a hawk –
    raining death on Serbs like some madcap character from “Apocalypse Now.”

This wag-the-dog-and-pony show of Clinton’s is a disgrace. This war
is immoral. It is illegal. There are no vital U.S. interests at stake in
the region. There is no battle plan. There is no exit strategy. There is
only death and destruction in this war — no higher calling, no noble
purpose, no lofty goal.

It’s time to stop looking for an honorable way out for Clinton. The
only way out for him is via the rear entrance at 1600 Pennsylvania
Avenue and a free ride back to Arkansas where he can devote his full
attention to the only kind of “domestic affairs” for which he is
renowned.

Pull the troops out of the Balkans. Stop the bombing today. Relieve
the draft-dodging commander-in-chief from further responsibilities.
