The Ministry of Defense destroyed by NATO air strikes in Belgrade, Serbia
In 1999 NATO intervened in an escalating civil war, the Kosovo War, between ethnic Albanians and Serbs on the behalf of the outgunned Albanians. The intervention was controversial for many reasons. The initial fighting did not involve NATO nations. It coincidentally took media attention away from the Monica Lewinsky Scandal, and among numerous other controversies, three missiles were fired at and destroyed the Chinese embassy, supposedly surgically accurate missiles. For nearly 4 months NATO launched Tomahawk cruise missiles and flew over 38,000 combat missions targeting military installations, power plants, media broadcasting stations and the Ministry of Defense, pictured above.
