Summary

A group of people started bombing Yugoslavia violating all norms of international law.

Disproof

In 1999, the NATO operation for Kosovo followed over a year of intense efforts by the UN and the Contact Group, of which Russia was a member, to bring about a peaceful solution. The UN Security Council on several occasions branded the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and the mounting number of refugees driven from their homes as a threat to international peace and security.

In case of a global war, NATO will abandon its allies.

Disproof
