  •  That's not the dispute (0+ / 0-)

    I didn't talk about the bombing or the timing or the necessity .

    Diplomacy backed by nato aircraft , and then the good folks at NATO decided that Serbia needed some bombing anyway.

    That's an addition to what I said , not a "No" .

    •  If you say it was done by diplomacy backed ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... by nato aircraft, which is saying that the nato aircraft were supporting that side's bargaining position ...

      ... and Cassiodorus says it was done by diplomacy without requiring the nato aircraft that were used anyway ...

      ... the disagreement there is whether the nato aircraft were indeed supporting, or in other words "backing", the diplomacy. You claiming it was, Cassiodorus replying to disagree with that part of your claim.

      If you don't mean to say that the nato aircraft was supporting that side of the diplomacy, not using a phrase that means it was supporting that side in the diplomacy would be the way to go there.

      •  So we are debating backed ? (0+ / 0-)
        During a period of two weeks, threats intensified, culminating in NATO's Activation Order being given. NATO was ready to begin airstrikes, and Richard Holbrooke went to Belgrade in the hope of reaching an agreement with Milošević.

        •  Cassiodorus surely is. (0+ / 0-)

          He directly claimed that the NATO airstrikes were redundant to the diplomatic success, which is a contradiction to what you claimed, that the NATO air strikes backed the diplomatic effort.

          Go ahead and dispute his claim if you wish, but to strip out what he was saying "No" to in order to suggest there was no difference in what you were saying is not valid.
