On March 24, 1999, NATO began bombing Serbian military points after receiving reports of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo by Serb forces. Unable to get Yugoslav authorities to agree to a political settlement, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan ordered NATO's action. In a speech before the United Nations, Annan explains that there are times when one must use force in the pursuit of peace.
