Why NATO simultaneously arms trains and denounces the KLA

Simply because it is defensive action, and the position is now more than defensive in
itself. The simplest answer I can give is that it isn't a matter of whether an
individual is revolutionary or not, the question is how do we see the actions here.

Out of power, the new state masters are debating which parcels and at what speed to
sell-off what is left of Yugoslav socialism (interestingly enough, Michael Parenti's
To Kill A Nation opened my eyes to the different course thus far charted by Slovenia
as well- "not enough shock in their therapy" according to one economic adviser). In
this situation, defensive is vital- defensive is on the right side of history and all
that entails- but revolutionary means mounting a challenge to somehow reverse this.
And as I've said before, I don't believe this any longer can take place in rump
Yugoslavia. It will be regional or in a world with a very different set of class
forces (the return of the East wind, if you like).
