Crocodile tears from NATO. This is NATO kissing ass in order to try and con Serbia into joining the alliance. It’s all a bunch a lies…look at NATO’s actions not their words.
After bombing Serbia, NATO went on to bomb Libya to smithereens, play an active role in Syria’s devastating war to oust Assad, and is now actively supporting the murder of civilians in East Ukraine at the hands of an illegal putsch neo-nazi Kiev government.
NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg regrets nothing. He and his clan of war hawks are incapable of feeling sympathy, regret, or guilt. Their god is money and power, and those killed in Serbia were considered to be obstacles in their path towards conquest and subjugation.
Serbia should tell Stoltenberg, and NATO, to stick it up their ass.
The next time Stoltenberg, Merkel, Obama, Nuland, Powers, or any other western war criminal spews out the garbage narrative about Crimea, and how ‘Russia must not be allowed to change borders in modern day Europe’, bring up NATO’s covert and overt participation in dissecting Yugoslavia into a hundred little pieces.
Deaths in Crimea = 0
Deaths in Serbia = 2,500 plus

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said he deeply regretted the loss of all lives during NATO’s bombing campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which he described as “a tragedy,” Serbian media reported on Thursday.
Speaking in Budva, Montenegro, after his meeting with Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, Stoltenberg said that he was offering condolences to all families and all those who lost their loved ones, Serbian newspaper Blic reported.
NATO “made every effort” to prevent the loss of innocent lives, Stoltenberg said, and added:
“Unfortunately, in the concrete case we could not avoid the suffering of civilians. I sincerely regret that. The goal of the operation was certainly to establish peace.”
“The goal and purpose of NATO’s air operation was also to protect civilians — and we succeeded in that,” Jens Stoltenberg emphasized.
NATO’s air strikes against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, made up at the time of Serbia and Montenegro, lasted for 78 days and ended on June 10, 1999.
According to different estimates, between 1,200 and 2,500 were killed in the attacks. Almost 13,000 were injured. The material damage is estimated at between $30 billion and $100 billion.
The western leaders justified the airstrikes by the need to end ethnic cleansings allegedly being conducted by Serbian forces in Kosovo.
It was also the first time that NATO used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council and against a sovereign nation that did not pose any real threat to any member of the alliance.
