DOCUMENTARY
COLLATERAL DAMAGE
Available Online
Six months after NATO ended its air war against Yugoslavia, two of
Washington's new breed of hands-on policy analysts, Gary Dempsey and Aaron Lukas, flew to the Balkans to document the "unintended consequences" of NATO's bombing campaign. Equipped with the latest in mini-digital camera technology, they traveled through the region, filming patrols in Kosovo cities where NATO troops are stationed, inspecting bombed-out industrial complexes in Serbia, and interviewing Macedonians, Romanians and Bulgarians who have suffered because of the war. "Collateral Damage: The Balkans After NATO's Air War" is a record of their findings.

Anarchy & Madness
Timothy Garton Ash,
New Yourk Review of Books, Feb, 2000
Reflective text on the difficult situation in Post-war Kosovo. Garton Ash makes a thorough analysis why there is no true peace in Kosovo.

"West won the war. I fear we are losing the peace."


"Before and during the war, Kosovars kept assuring me that Kosova
would not be like Albania: corrupt, anarchic, ruled by the gun and the gang.
Increasingly, it is. The Albanization of Kosova is taking place
in a way no ordinary Kosova Albanian wanted. The gangsters have stepped
into the vacuum left by the slowness of the West." Timothy Garton Ash
