Greeks almost unanimously condemn the NATO bombings in Yugoslavia and oppose prospective ground operations in Kosovo, while an overwhelming majority believe US president Bill Clinton should be tried as a criminal of war. According to a survey conducted by ICAP Hellas on behalf of Pantios University, 99.5 percent of those polled opposed the bombings and 99.3 percent the prospect of ground operations. The poll, carried out on behalf of the University's psychology department between April 29 and May 5 among 1,000 people in Athens and Piraeus, showed 69.7 percent calling for Clinton to be put on trial on war crimes charges and 38.9 percent naming the US leader as the "big winner" of the war. A sweeping 78.6 percent found Greek media coverage of the Yugoslav conflict to be objective.
