THIS Is War…

And while I won’t diminish the horror of September 11, it pales in comparison to this — and other violence that the U.S. visits upon other nations. WARNING: Graphic imagery. Parental discretion is advised. (But really, you should be showing your children what can happen when power is abused. They need that life lesson.)

11th Anniversary of NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia

Anyone who knows me knows how I feel about that and about America’s hand in this travesty. I mentioned the reason that I changed the format of this web site was so that I would be less likely to dwell on unpleasantness and instead keep things upbeat. But this is too significant a date in Serbian history and I will therefore never, ever forget what this country did to Yugoslavia and her people. And I hope you won’t either.

Tit for Tadic

My friend, Alex updates me on the situation there in Serbia with regard to the newly-declared independence (cough) of Kosovo. Tonight there is violence in the capitol city of Belgrade as angry Serbs, mostly young soccer fans, stormed several embassies (including the U.S. Embassy) and set them ablaze. At least one person is dead as a result of this mayhem.

From the report at B92.net:

The U.S. has asked the U.N. Security Council to meet and discuss the breach of international law by Serbia, since embassies are sovereign territories. Instead of an apology, Prime Minister Kostunica responded by saying, ‘This is a good time to discuss a much bigger breach of international law, by the United States, when it supported the illegal and unilateral independence of Kosovo.’

The U.S. and Americans have a LOT of nerve being outraged about this. We are the ones who started it nearly 10 years ago. America has its head so far up its ass that it just can’t see the light. Pretty damn dark in there, huh?

Despite what imperialistic America and its fawning press would have you believe, there is some well reasoned opinion out there why independence for Kosovo is a bad move. It has been ignored and will continue to be ignored. And let’s not even go into the issue of the unilateral and illegal bombing of then-Yugoslavia back in the spring of 1999. No, we definitely don’t want to go THERE. What a short memory the U.S. has. Well, I don’t.

And Svetlana said it best here:

So, let me see if I get this straight: the US embassy in Belgrade is “a sovereign American territory” in Serbia, but 15% of Serbian state and a cradle of Serbia’s culture, faith and statehood?Kosovo and Metohija province?is not sufficiently sovereign Serbian territory, because the US wants to seize it from Serbia?
