    Found this on another forum:

    Chinese Embassy Blitzed by Nato was Hiding Serbs

    Truth about "mistake" bombing of Chinese embassy

    Interesting points.

    Foreign embassies are a strict no-go in any war, and yet US bombed the Chinese embassy.

    Jiang Zhemin gambled to outflank Russia by attempting to support Milosevic, but that gamble backfired.

    China could only get its hands on a part of the jet exhaust of F-117 fighter aircraft. So the entire thread running on how J-20 is derived from F-117 is malarky (thats just IMHO, I believe J-20 has more similarities to the F-35 considering many reports about F-35 data theft in recent years).

    Here comes the rumor mill. What magazine is that 'Chinese-language magazine in Hong Kong'? Who are those idiotic 'Chinese journalists' believing the account is authentic just because there has been previous leaks in Hong Kong magazines? I mean come on, this report is completely sourceless.

    Truth behind America's raid on Belgrade
    Why would China allow such a person to use what is effectively its "prime estate"?

    Obviously a made up story along the same lines as the fake Tiananmen Diaries.

    Even if it was true, makes the US seem even more like Nazi Germany.

    After all, the Germans also bombed Russians and French sheltering Jews.

    So you are equating the Serb paramilitary leader "Arkan" and his cronies with Jews during WWII? Why would Chinese embassy let such a figure to operate from their premises?

    Being ignorant is one thing but not doing a simple google search is another.

    Passage from the same source you quoted. I like how you bolded certain parts of it and ignored others.

    Said the guy who is generally dismissive of conspiracy theories. I guess old Gambit has a soft spot for those after all?

    A foreign embassy is considered sovereign territory of that nation, and should not be target of air strikes. An excuse such as "map error" certainly isn't going to cut it, and I doubt anybody in China believes Americans' explanation.

    If the embassy was hiding Serbs, then why didn't the US simply state that as their cause? Why hide it and call it an "accident"?
