Almost as soon as the bombs stopped falling on Yugoslavia, the Clinton administration and the other NATO governments proclaimed that the alliance had scored a great victory. They emphasized that Yugoslavia's president, Slobodan Milosevic, had capitulated to their demands for a NATO-led peacekeeping force in Kosovo and that the Albanian Kosovar refugees would be able to return to their homes. According to proponents of the war, NATO had waged a successful campaign to prevent genocide; had enhanced its credibility as an effective institution for preserving peace, stability, and justice in post-Cold War Europe; and had struck fear in the hearts of would-be aggressors around the world.
