Clark stated: "There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That's a 19th-century idea and we are trying to transition it into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.", in regards to the Kosovo war.
Wesley Clark lead the bombing of Kosovo, killing hundreds of Christian Kosovo Serbs.
Quote from the article: '[Clark] claimed that even the "hawks" in the US government acknowledged privately that President Saddam was no threat to America. "There are some in the administration who have always felt that military power should be used to eliminate Saddam Hussein," he said. "Those who favour this attack now will tell you candidly, and privately, that it is probably true that Saddam Hussein is no threat to the United States. But they are afraid at some point he might decide, if he had a nuclear weapon, to use it against Israel."'
