A clip from it:


Hours after the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia began on March 24, 1999, the
Serbian ethnic cleansing campaign began, expelling hundreds of thousands of
Albanians, and creating an enormous refugee crisis.
*snip*

another clip:


The Serbian democratic opposition strongly condemned the bombing as
undermining and delaying their efforts to oust President Milosevic, and as
strengthening his police state. It was not the NATO bombing but Serbs'
largely nonviolent revolution that overthrew Milosevic in October 2000, and
replaced him with democratic leader Vojislav Kostunica, who had opposed
NATO's war.

If this is what passes for "left" history of the conflict, then no wonder
we never learn from history at all.

Sigh.
