Refugees cries in fear
and desperation. Media brings us the horrors of war 24 hours
14th of June 1999:
Is it over?
It seems like the war could be over for now, NATO has stopped
the bombing, The serbs are moving out of Kosovo, and NATOs KFOR-force
is moving in.
But there is still heavy tension in the area, and
it´s gonna take months before the situation are stabilized
and the refugees can start moving back into Kosovo and rebuild
their lives. And now there is a new wave of refugees, the serbian
population of Kosovo are fleing...
27th of May 1999:
The war has been going on for 65 days
now, and there is still no solution in sight... There are now
969.000 refugees (UNHCR numbers). When will this war end?
17th of April 1999:
Sadly as it is, there is a war going
on right here in Europe. The Serb forces empties Kosovo of Kosovar-
Albanians, and NATO bombs Yugoslavia back to the stoneage.
As always in a war, the sivil population are
the victims. Hundreds of thousands of refugees are leaving Kosovo
for Albania and Macedonia. When I write his 588.000 people have
fled Kosovo, that is 1/8 of Norways entrire population!
The background for this conflict is very complex,
and I will not try to explain it here. But what is sure, is that
after the peacetalks in Rambouillet collapsed on the 19th of
march when the serbs refused to sign the agrement and the bombardment
started on the 24th of March, is that we have seen images of
terror and suffering that shocks the world. Not since the second
world war has Europe seen a war worse than this.
Just the images is important in this war, as in
all wars in modern time, used in propaganda and as opinion-makers.
The power of the images is enormous, and the right use of them
can turn a conflict over. But is it already to late?
President of Yugoslavia, mastermind of the plan of ethnic cleansing
Norwegian foreign secretary and chairman of OSSE, the organisation
for peace and security in europe. Tried to talk Milosevic into
signing Rambouillet, but failed.
Russian foreign secretary, tries to negotiate in the conflict.
Since Russia is not a part in the conflict itself, he might be
in a key posision to solve the conflict.
US foreign secretary, a strong voice in the NATO alliance. Is
one of the leading politicans for bombing Yugoslavia.
Decided to attack Yugoslavia with airstrikes after Ramboillet
went down the sink. Did not ask the UN for premision since China
and Russia would most certainly have vetoed it.
The Kosovo Liberation Army. The Kosovar-Albanian guerilla that
started its offence last year to liberate Kosovo from Yugoslavia.
