You must maintain accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Regarding Kosovo NATO decided:
On 13 October 1998, following a deterioration of the situation, the NATO Council authorised Activation Orders for air strikes. This move was designed to support diplomatic efforts to make the Milosevic regime withdraw forces from Kosovo, cooperate in bringing an end to the violence and facilitate the return of refugees to their homes. At the last moment, following further diplomatic initiatives including visits to Belgrade by NATO’s Secretary General Solana, US Envoys Holbrooke and Hill, the Chairman of NATO’s Military Committee, General Naumann, and the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Clark, President Milosevic agreed to comply and the air strikes were called off.
On 10 June 1999, after an air campaign lasting seventy-seven days, NATO Secretary General Javier Solana announced that he had instructed General Wesley Clark, Supreme Allied Commander Europe, temporarily to suspend NATO’s air operations against Yugoslavia. This decision was taken after consultations with the North Atlantic Council and confirmation from General Clark that the full withdrawal of Yugoslav forces from Kosovo had begun.
But, from 2014 on, NATO decided not to intervine in Ukraina despite the country being attacked by Russia. Why?
Why – again – a sovereign state demanding defence from abroad is left alone to fight for its territory, right to have its own elected government, life and property of its citizens?
It sets up a very, very dangerous precedent which begs the question: Who is next?
