Soldier-turned-singer: US ordered me to attack Russian troops

‘I’m not going to have my soldiers be responsible for starting World War 3,’ top UK soldier reportedly said

A British pop singer who served during the war in Kosovo says he refused an order from US Gen. Wesley Clark to attack 200 Russian troops, a move he says could have started World War 3.

James Blunt, most famous for his 2005 hit song “You’re Beautiful,” recounted to the BBC his experience in the taking of Pristina airfield in Kosovo in 1999. When 30,000 NATO troops arrived to take the airfield, they were surprised to find Russian troops had already occupied it.

According to a BBC documentary, the Russians had evidently believed that their role in peace-making efforts with Serbia meant they would be allowed to control a portion of Kosovo under their own flag, and so occupied the airfield.

Blunt said he was heading up a unit of British soldiers that were at the forefront of the 30,000-strong NATO force.
