It was on the basis of this document that Milošević refused to accept that the Western powers provided themselves with the authority to drop high explosive bombs on a western civilised country from 20,000 feet.
Lord Gilbert the Minister of State for Defence later said to a House of Commons enquiry "I think the terms put to Milošević at Rambouillet were absolutely intolerable; how could he possibly accept them; it was quite deliberate".
Memories of this were rekindled by a report about Ray Lustig a retired Washington Post photographer who has lived in the Palisades section of Northwest Washington for 39 years.
he has noticed that every major US military action was preceded by increased helicopter traffic over his house, as choppers shuttled people back and forth between the Pentagon, and CIA Langley HQ.
Ray said Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom all started after weeks and weeks of helicopters big and small travelling the well-worn air route above his house.
"The movement in June was truly extraordinary," he said, a near-constant chatter from 6:30 in the morning till 2 in the morning. "I figure they're either planning the endgame of the Iraq war or they're going to bomb the nuclear facilities in Iran."
The Pentagon announced on July 10th that it the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier battle group, was off to Iranian waters - that means that there will soon be three carrier battle groups within striking range of Iranian targets.
The Cheney doctrine is alleged to be a false flag US based sub nuclear event - a container ship in the Panama Canal with a dirty bomb - perhaps with synchronised events on the Northern Iraq / Iran border and Israel "taking the chance to "bomb Syria.
As the dollar finally tanks (plus 1.40 to the Euro, plus 2.06 to the pound) , and the mortgage crisis hits, as the commodity markets soar, bombing Iran seems like a good idea.
That's when the UK forces high tail it for Kuwait or fly out of Basra and those long, long supply lines , all those trucks driven by third world hired hands crumbles and Baghdad is isolated.
They will need more than whirring helicopters to get out of that mess.
