What's the difference?

The difference between - say - an American who flees from Saigon and a Khmer intellectual who flees from Phnom Penh.

An American who flees from Saigon is not at home. He's an occupier. Serbs were at home. In both Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo.

Because there were no civilian Americans living in Saigon before the outbreak of hostilities? I find that hard to imagine...

Even so. Americans have no claim whatsoever to Saigon. Serbs have been living in Krajna and Bosnia for over 600 years! In fact, they were in Bosnia BEFORE the Muslims and in Krajna they were a majority since the 14th century.

Which, by the way, is not the case of Albanians in Kosovo - who after WWII represented some 40% of the population. Tito's policies changed that.
