Orwell makes a point that had Tories rather than the Labour been in power at that time, the outcome of the nonviolent movement in India would have been much different - in fact it would have been the same as the output of nonoviolent protest elsewhere - the protesters would have been machine-gunned.
I still disagree, however, that the NATO intervention is about Kosovo, let alone saving its people from a massacre. It is a terror bombing campaign designed to make the Belgrade regime more pliant - and Kosovars are not even pawns in that game -- they are merely propaganda points, just as the Kurds were in the Persian Gulf war.
Greg Nowell on this list made an excellent point that the conflict in Yugoslavia is about commerce, specifically the Danube commerce which Belgrade is recently blocking. In a sense, this is the 1956 Suez Canal history repeating itself as farce.
