Brussels, May 6 - Former NATO commander Wesley Clark admitted he requested permission for ground troops in last year's aggression against Yugoslavia, saying that was one of the reasons he came into conflict with his Pentagon superiors.

With this latest statement given to the Dutch paper Handelsblad, Clark once again confirmed he was ready for all possible losses and suffering of civilian population.

According to the statements by high ranking officers of the Western military Alliance, this U.S. General used to make decisions about the bombardment of civilian targets mostly on his own.

In his statement to the Dutch paper, Clark said he "fell out with his Pentagon superiors over the use of ground troops".
