Do you mean Kosovo?

Don't recall anyone in the administration lying about what the Serbs were doing or what weapons they possessed.

Froth;

Doesn't matter. Didn't you know that whatever Bush did (or didn't do) he was no where near as bad as Clinton?

The first recession that occurred during the GWB administration was Clinton's fault. The second GWB recession was Obama's. Where have YOU been?

httt: NATO intervened in Kosovo. As a member of NATO, the US fulfilled its obligations.

The crisis there was a threat to the stability of Central Europe.

Kosovo was a clear success.

The US suffered no combat casualties during the campaign.

What was the point that you were trying to make, again?

Almost everyone of your little rants could be addressed with a reasonable and factual response, but why bother? You liberals are going to believe whatever you want to believe. I hope you feel better now that you had your little hissy fit.
