Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Clark ordered a British/French paramilitary force to be deployed to the airport, in order to get there before the Russians. The British refused, with General Jackson stating to Clark that he did not want to start WW3.

Just a friendly dash to the airport gets some Brit thinking he's about to start WW3. Anyway, the situation was eventually resolved, mostly in favour of NATO.
