These ideas are often titled theories, a term that grants the ideas a certain degree of credibility in application, though they remain theories; they cannot be proved. This Essay will attempt to apply this theory, somewhat retroactively to the situation in Bosnia and more specifically, to that in Kosovo.
The Kosovo Conflict Background of Kosovo: The reason for contention is because of ethnic origin and disputes of which race owns which land. That is the reason for the dispute over Kosovo is because of the same thing.
I just kind of know the basics. Since Kosovo has many historical ties to the Serbs, and the Serbs conquered that territory back in the hundreds, Milosevic wanted to reclaim their rightful territory.
That is probably a very low figure. Nearly one half a million people have been expelled from their homes, many forced out at gunpoint, while the Serbian troops destroyed their identity papers, making them unable to return to their homes.
This flood of refugees have overwhelmed neighboring countries, who are economically weak, and are unable to take in all the refugees. That is a big controversery of whether or not NATO should be involved.
At first I was against NATO involvement for just those reasons, why should NATO get involved where there would be no benefit to us, because this was more of a humanitarian issue.
I believe that we should do everything possible to help stop Tyrants from killing innocent people. Which is what was and is occuring in Kosovo.
There have been many occasions where the U. He said, trying to get public approval, that the reason the U. He said that this war would help the U.
By getting involved, we would become partners with Europe, thus increasing a trade relationship. That is what I am against.
I am against the U. It has been of no help to NATO, an alliance that has seen its military stocks drawn down to dangerously low levels, with no effects on the atrocities going on in the killing fields.
That was one reason why Russia is against U. NATO underestimated milosevics tolerance. Also, both sides did not fully explore the possiblity of a peaceful negotiation. After the Vietnam war, there was a study on the conflict where a group of researchers tried to find out if there was a better way of handling the conflict.
They talked with both U. Which in the end, made things much worse. That is the question being raised in this conflict, could there have been a peaceful negotiation? Over million human beings have been killed in various conflicts, and that number rises each day.
It is a dark history, but unless we look at it and seek to learn from it, it will only get darker. Will we say the same about the Balkans? This is also a characteristic of Vietnam, where there was very questionable news being sent back to the public.
There is very vague reports of what NATO bombed, and how bad the damage was. There has been much use of double speak in the news. This gave Milosivic the advantage. Milosevic was allready killing ethnic albanians before the bombing began, but not to the degree he was after bombing started.
As in Somalia, the U. Then in one day, when 15 soldiers died, the U.
Not one allied soldier engaged in combat has even been seriously injured in 2 months of the campaign. This is by far my biggest objection to this war. In this case, to save the ethnic albanians. And this is exactly how Clinton is going about this war. Clinton, I believe, is too concern with public opinion.The history of Kosovo is intertwined with the histories of its neighboring regions.
The name "Kosovo" is derived from the Kosovo Plain,  where the Battle of Kosovo was fought between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire. Back in the hundreds, the Serbs conquered the Kosovo area, slowly and gradually over the years the Ethnic Albanians started occupying the territory, until before the bombing began, Kosovo consisted of 90% Ethnic Albanians.
Kosovo is a region in the Balkan Peninsula in Europe. It is a landlocked country bordered on all sides by Serbia, Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro. History of Serbia and Montenegro A concise historical survey of Serbia and Montenegro until the Kosovo war.
Montenegro - The Serbian Land Collection of articles and texts on the Serb Identity of Montenegro. An essay or paper on Kosovo To Yugoslavia. Kosovo, the province of the previous Yugoslavia is in the center of attention of the whole world.
Not many people know, what was really going on in the cruelest war in the Balkans of southeast Europe. Kosovo: Kosovo, self-declared independent country in the Balkans region of Europe. Although the United States and most members of the European Union (EU) recognized Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia in , Serbia, Russia, and a significant number of other countries—including several EU members—did not.
