Another perspective on this is that it was actually the KLA and the Albanians who started the whole mess, and the US was partly to blame. Kosovo has a long history, and as recently as fifty years ago was mostly Serbian instead of mostly Albanian. Looking at it that way makes the Albanians look more like the bad guys, since they were trying to take over the territory by immigration (similar to China's takeover of Tibet, but without as many guns).

The papers there are probably biased, but definitely not in the same direction that the coverage we're getting from the news has been.
