  1. The Absurdity of "Independent" Kosovo
    A Saga of Injustice and Hypocrisy

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    The West's entire approach to Kosovo has been marked by sordid dishonesty and bad faith, supporting national self-determination and the right to secession in one place and territorial integrity in another, cheering on ethnic cleansing by one ethnic group and demanding war crimes trials for another, trumpeting the virtues of majority rule when it's convenient to do so and threatening to impose sanctions and penalties on majorities when that's convenient. For the Americans, Kosovo is nothing more than the hinterland of a giant military base.
  2. Another Way for Kosovo?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Chomsky considers the facts of the Kosovo crisis and aims to determine if other plausible courses of action were available.
  3. Bill Clinton's Most Abominable Freedom Fighters Uncloaked
    Return to Kosovo

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Unfortunately, Bill Clinton will never be held liable for killing innocent Serbs or for helping body-snatchers take over a nation the size of Connecticut. Clinton is reportedly being paid up to $500,000 for each speech he gives nowadays. Perhaps some of the well-heeled attendees could flourish artificial arms and legs in the air to showcase Clinton’s actual legacy.

  6. Imperial Crusades
    Iraq, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia: A Diary of Three Wars

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2004
    Iraq was just one of three major imperial crusades in the decade after 1992, orchestrated by a new generation of American politicians, both Democrat and Republican, who backed pre-emptive strikes to overthrow unruly regimes in Yugoslavia and Afghanistan under the pretext of humanitarian intervention. Imperial Crusades chronicles the lies that are now returning almost daily to haunt the liars in Washington and London, the secret agendas and the under-reported carnage of these wars.
  7. Kosovo Peace Accord
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    In response to the Peace Accord achieved between Serbia and NATO, Chomsky questions how peace could be declared or radical change expected considering the lack of institutional or structural adjustment in the region.
  8. Kosovo: Where NATO Bombing Only Made the Killing Worse
    The Big Lie: From Serbia to Syria

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The NATO powers brandished the charge of genocide as justification for the bombing that destroyed much of Serbia’s economy and killed around 2,000 civilians, with elevated death levels predicted for years to come.
  9. Krieg im Kosovo
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1999
  10. Media Think
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2000
    Increasingly the news media are owned by a small group of very large corporations with extensive interests outside the industry, run by the corporate elite.Winter argues that instead of offering diverse perspectives on events and issues, the media portray an increasingly dogmatic and orthodox corporate picture of the world around us. The consistency with which they do this has its consequent, intended effect on public opinion and policy formation.
  11. NATO's Road to War and Ruin
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    THE CARNAGE IN Kosovo and the United States/NATO air campaign—which, we will argue, is escalating toward either humiliating defeat or a full-scale ground war—pose one of the greatest challenges in a generation to the left's principles, political courage and moral backbone. During most of our lifetimes, it's been unprecedented to confront such a situation of apparent total conflict between competing imperatives: between the need for immediate action to stop the crimes against...
  12. Recovering Nonviolent History
    Civil Resistance in Liberation Struggles

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2013

  13. A Response on NATO and Kosovo
    Against The Current vol. 81

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999

  14. A Review of NATO's War over Kosovo
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    In wake of the end of the Kosovo conflict, Chomsky attempts a dispassionate analysis of the crisis, differentiating between two approaches available to the international community in such situations.
  15. Socialist Register 2000
    Volume 36: Necessary and Unnecessary Utopias

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2000
  16. US and British officials told us that at least 100,000 were murdered in Kosovo. A year later, fewer than 3,000
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    After more than a year, the silence of those who wrote and broadcast the propaganda for Nato's "humanitarian war" over Kosovo remains unbroken: they who answered the Prime Minister's call to join "a great moral crusade" against a regime that was "set on a Hitler-style genocide equivalent to the extermination of the Jews during World War Two".
  17. Why Kosovo But Not Palestine?
    The Right to Exist

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Barak Obama pretends that he is vetoing UN recognition of a Palestinian state because it did not come about as a result of negotations. But meanwhile the US has recognized Kosovo, which came into being without negotations, and in violation of international law.

Mission Connexions exists to support individuals and groups working for freedom and social justice. We work to maintain and make available a record of the theory and practice of people struggling against oppression and for social change. We believe that the more we know about the struggles, victories, and defeats of the past, and about those who took part in them, the better equipped we will be to bring a new world into being. Connexions maintains a physical archive of books and documents, and is engaged in an ongoing project to build and expand an indexed digital archive of documents. We try to feature a wide variety of resources reflecting a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to social change within our overall mandate of support for democracy, civil liberties, freedom of expression, universal human rights, secularism, equality, economic justice, environmental responsibility, and the creation and preservation of community. We are internationalist in our orientation, but as a Canadian-based project we feature an especially extensive collection of Canadian documents and profiles of Canadian activist organizations.
