A poem from  KOSOVO WAR  POETRY  by David Roberts

This little epigram carries a heavy warning. 

The peace movement has been set back fifty years. War fighting, for the first time in half a century is now an acceptable approach to international relations as far as NATO nations are concerned. This means increased arms spending, a new arms race, more wars. Mankind enters the twenty-first century in greater danger than we have ever been in before.

Tempting War

The nature of war is different now.
When the Western Federation flies in
only the losing nation suffers losses,
and the Federation will always win.
