((NATO DID IT'S BEST TODAY TO CLEAR UP DEADLY CONFUSION ON THE BATTLEFIELD - BUT THE REALITY WAS THE SAME. - CIVILIANS HAD PROBABLY BEEN KILLED AND NATO ADMITTED IT.

BUT THE CARNAGE SHOWN ON SERB TELEVISION DIDN'T SQUARE WITH THAT STORY-SOME VICTIMS REPORTEDLY SUFFERING WOUNDS IMPOSSIBLE TO INFLICT FROM THE AIR.

BUT EVEN AS THE AIR WAR RACKED UP SUCCESSES - NATO IS CONSIDERING OTHER WAYS TO HURT THE SERB MILITARY - INCLUDING CUTTING OFF OIL SUPPLIES FROM OTHER COUNTRIES - ANOTHER STEP FURTHER ESCALATING WHAT THE U-S CONTINUES TO CALL A CONFLICT, NOT A WAR. JOE LOCKHART//WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN: It doesn't make sense - re- supplying them.
