The fact that you speak about cleansing of Albanians and don't speak of the genocide of the endemic Serbs in Kosovo (yes, Albanians were largely invited to settle in Kosovo by Tito, while for the Serbs Kosovo was a native land for centuries) means BBC has done its job as a propaganda loudspeaker. I remember this one time a BBC reporter, with a straight face, was saying NATO aviation spotted mass graves of Albanian Kosovars. Aviation spotted mass graves. Just let that sink in.Regarding the topic of NATO bombing the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia because of what the F.R.Y. did in Kosovo....i.e. the ethnic cleansing & bloodshed of Albanians.
There are huge amounts of independent first had witnesses to the atrocities during this war committed by the F.R.Y. The facts are irrefutable in courts of law as has been proven in the decades since.
Iraq is well known as a total disaster as the British were then in Afghanistan wiping out the Taliban. Tony Blair was convinced by his best mate..George W Bush..the POTUS at the time, that is was a good idea to bomb Iraq because of 9/11....So we pulled out of Afghanistan & the Taliban grew in strength & caused problems later on..(now)
Tony Blair should have told G.W.Bush to GTFO....but the UK was still paying off the WWII debt (Marshall plan) to the USA at the time & we were still under the "special friendship"....
Remember that time the CIA created Bin Laden to fight against the Soviets? The NYT even called him a freedom warrior in 93 on its front page. And then oops, something went wrong and I had to watch the towers come down. I have yet to see proof of any Taliban involvement in 9/11.Hard to feel bad about smashing the Taliban to bits. They haven't exactly shown themselves to be the finest people on earth so...
Iraq is obviously a different story considering they never attacked us and we laid waste to what was actually a rather progressive country.
That being said I don't recall anyone except the Invisible man himself saying Muslim = brown. Understanding that his point is "you can't label others racist if you're just a different kind of racist" but that lesson isn't going to be heard from a person who can't get out of their own way with word usage.
No one listens to a jerk.

I bet BBC didn't report in their news about NATO air strikes that landed bombs on a perinatal center in Belgrade. And remember the Chinese embassy? I bet they were genociding the poor UÇK that had done nothing wrong since the mid 90s, yeah.
Lol. The British intelligence was the one that provided fake info about Iraq in the first place. Or do you imagine that Bush sat down with Tony this one day and said: "Let's bomb Iraq, it will be fun, we found a few Tide pods that we think can be used as WOMD." And Tony was like, reluctantly: "I guess we can..."
You can't honestly still, 20 years later believe that the invasion of Iraq in 2003 by Bush, Rumsfeld and co. had anything to do with 9/11.
So once the UK is out of the "special friendship", the UK will disband half its military and will stop participating in humanitarian bombings worldwide? Because as far as I can tell, the building of new aircraft carriers and F-35s doesn't fit the peaceful paradigm too well.
You also have no problem against a cold war alliance conducting mass air raides against a sovereign country under a false humanitarian pretense. And had it been just Serbia, i may possibly would have said: yeah, maaaaybe they were right. And even then after all the foreign interventions by the self proclaimed human rights loving democratic west (carpet bombing of Vietnam still remains the prime jewel in the crown of humanitarian operations by the freedom loving western man) it was clear NATO was a geopolitical instrument that was meant to finally crush an already half broken socialist Serbia. Read up on the UÇK and what was happenning to the Serbs in Kosovo in the 90s and shortly after the NATO bombed civilian targets in Serbian cities.I have no problem with the current president of Kosovo.
