Garton-Ash ignores one of the most important elements in Counterblast, which was our focus on the bombing of the Belgrade TV station. The Geneva Convention states: "Civilians shall not be the object of an attack unless they take a direct part in hostilities." The killings of civilians at the TV station and elsewhere are acts of murder. Or would Garton-Ash argue that they are humanitarian acts of murder?
As for his view that I believe America possesses "hypocritical, militaristic and imperialistic policies", and that Britain is "in poodle-like support of them", I couldn't have put it better myself.
