ABSTRACT
The article discusses the goals the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) should have in its war in Kosovo, Serbia in 1999. The first goal is to reverse aggression by Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. The Balkans are of no great strategic importance in themselves, and embarking on an aimless military intervention was unwise. The second goal is to remove NATO forces from Kosovo. The NATO has already mistakenly staked its credibility on solving Eurasia's dilemmas rather than on defending its members.
