Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today.

    Aiming to wipe out fuel supplies in Yugoslavia, NATO planes early today targeted the country’s biggest oil refinery for the second time in 24 hours, along with military installations.

  • Plowshares

    The first of 24 "Apache" attack helicopters could arrive in Albania this week to join the NATO forces against Yugoslavia, according to the Pentagon. The military has said that the low-flying, lethal Apaches would increase the alliance’s ability to smash Serb tanks and troops in Kosovo. It would be the first direct involvement of Army forces in the attacks. The Pentagon is also planning to send several hundred more U.S. warplanes to join the airstrikes.
