The rest of the left may have turned hawk on Kosovo, but a few die-hard doves remain. TheNation, for example, has written extensively against the war. A recent cover story argued that the bombing was dubious because a) the United States was just as brutal in Vietnam as the Serbs are now; b) the United States ignores similarly horrific ethnic cleansings in Turkey, Rwanda, etc.; and c) U.S. policy is being driven by corporate interests. It's reassuring to know that some things, indeed, never change.
