[Nettime-bold] Re: Suicide Bombers

Hmmm, I think Milosevic did not use MIG 29s and T 72s in Kosovo 
because of the fear he might lose them, and then remain 
defenseless. Sharon has no such fears. Palestinians are far more 
isolated, exhausted and underarmed than Albanians in Kosovo 
were. And Sharon not only has 3 times more tanks and 15 times 
more aircraft than Milosevic at his disposal, but can always count 
on the endless re-supply from the U.S. - something that Milosevic 
couldn't count on.

Good point. I agree.

To Ivo: Milosevic did have MiG 29s and 21s, and T55s to 72s but 
they were inappropriate for the nature of target. He didn't go after 
"infrastructure" (villages, hospitals, etc). I am trying to say that 
Sharon is worse in that sense. Ivo reminded me that people believe 
what they want to believe not necessarily what the facts were 
telling them.

army was fighting the confirmed terrorists (KLA), who had pushed away the Serbs from their own land
, and who were simply wiping out the rest of the remaining Serb population in Kosovo. Of course, it
 is not as simple as that, but worth taking into consideration...
