Hmm. I like Chomsky's discussion of the antinomies of "human rights" in the area in _The New Military Humanism: Lessons from Kosovo_.
On Livingstone's support for NATO's bombings -- and his urging of the commitment of ground troops -- I think Cockburn has it right: "...NATO bombing provoked a wave of Serbian killings and expulsions, but that there was and is no hard evidence of a genocidal program. Count another victory for the Big Lie." (The article is at <www.counterpunch.org/biglie.html>.)
