BUCHAREST, Romania -- NATO countries unanimously endorsed Bush administration plans for installing a missile defense system in alliance countries in Europe yesterday even as they rebuffed President Bush's entreaties to extend membership of the alliance to the former Soviet republics of Ukraine and Georgia. The unusually rancorous meeting of NATO members in Bucharest exposed sharp differences between nations, but despite the rancor Bush won some agreement on bolstering the number of NATO troops in Afghanistan and presenting a united front against Russia's objections on the issue of missile defense.

TETOVO, Macedonia -- The Kosovar Albanians want to tell the world they're not going away.It may be true, as a refugee named Fatlum Mauraj put it, that "all you can see in Pristina now are dogs and militia." But the 25-year-old student vows he'll be back in the now-deserted Kosovo capital, and the sooner the better.The "ethnic cleansing" of an entire province -- an entire would-be nation -- will not stand, say those who were driven out. Their defiance is universal. But reality lies in the particulars.
