From Ilic Branko: On this day 30. May, 1999.: NATO committed a horrible crime on a bridge in Varvarin, Serbia In that attack were killed 10 civilians, while 16 of them sustained serious injuries. The first attack killed three people and at least five wounded. A few minutes later, the aircraft returned and fired two […]
While I try to keep postings light on this site, sometimes you have to shine a light on the ugly. Tomorrow (March 24) will mark the anniversary of the beginning of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, an onslaught that lasted 78 days. While it was explained away to the rest of the world as an […]
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.)
Today marks a very unpleasant and shameful anniversary; the 14th anniversary of the start of the NATO bombing of the former Yugoslavia, which lasted until June 10, 1999. While Serbia and her people have risen from the ashes and moved forward, this travesty of human justice and flagrant abuse of power by both NATO and […]
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 […]
Walter Rockler, former Nuremburg prosecutor, had this to say about the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia: Today, I cannot be persuaded that random destruction and killing in Yugoslavia by the strong against the weak was anything less than killing in the service of arrogance, and I repudiate the shabby pretexts for this criminal conduct.
To all my Serbian friends, on the 10th anniversary of the illegal aggression by NATO and the U.S. against the former Yugoslavia, a day I’m ashamed ever happened, I want you to know: I will not forget.
Are they for real? Kosovo has been split along ethnic lines the entire time NATO has occupied it. What is going to change exactly? Latest on protests there from Yahoo! News. This is the crux of their protest: They say it would give Serbia a say over Kosovo’s affairs. Hel-LO! Serbia should absolutely have a […]
Jonathan Davis puts forth a rare positive view of the Serbian people in this Kosovo conflict. Bravo, Jonathan. Among the gems of wisdom in this article: For the last 15 years decent Serbs have been in exactly the same position as that of decent Muslims since 9/11. In the case of Muslims the actions of […]
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 […]
