You have no f'n idea what are you talking about --- the Balkans, so stop being smart and stop reading the CNN, and face the reality. It was the religious and ethnic war -- both sides were slaughtered. In the end -- "Milosevic's Serbia" is a 1/3 of a size it used to be, so...

As for the Afghan women -- are you actually following the latest developments???

Kurds -- how many dead over 20 years of Saddams rule -- let me exagerate and say 100k. Still a small chunk as compared to the "colleteral damage" caused by the cowboy in 5 years...

It was always tense, but China was willing to compromise.
The compromise is over as soon as we screwed up the things...
