The IMF's Yugoslavia from Clinton & Kemp to Quayle

You may want to check out http://www.polyconomics.com/ for a memo from
Jack Kemp to Dan Quayle opposing Nato's bombing of Yugoslavia.  Hard to find
much to disagree with -- it's a pretty sad comment on the "left" wing of
the establishment when Mr. Kemp is only mainstream politician speaking out
against the bombing in any serious way.

Some choice excepts:

" World peace cannot rest on American threats of violence, bombs at
midnight or the "bully" tactics of President Clinton."

"It was the IMF that created a tinderbox out of the Balkans at the end of
the Cold War. The result of the IMF^s deadly economic medicine of the
late 1980s has been to bankrupt the entire Yugoslav economy, destroy the
currency and unemploy the people. We should be doing everything possible
to prevent the IMF from re-entering the region and undermining efforts to
rebuild the economies. "
