NATO’S FIRST MILITARY ACTION IN HISTORY

WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?

Final word on Yugoslavia’s disintegration

WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?

In conclusion to the excerpts from my wartime diaries, I will try to answer a question some of you have been asking: Why did the Balkan wars happen in the 1990s that led to disintegration of Yugoslavia, a country cobbled together after the Treaty of Versailles in 1918, and a founding member of the United Nations.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s the answer to the above question.

 

During the years I worked as a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator (1989-2002), I had written literally hundreds of articles and hundreds of thousands of words on that topic.

It would be, therefore, nigh impossible for any of you to distill the truth and the answer to my title question without spending enormous amounts of time researching this topic. So let me try to answer it succinctly, paraphrasing almost word-for-word my comments about the Dayton Peace Agreement signed on Nov 25, 1995 – 22 years ago almost to the day – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim95-11.html.

 

Here’s an excerpt from the article written on that day during my layover in Paris, enroute to Belgrade:

CONNECTING “NATO WEST” WITH “NATO EAST” – THAT’S WHY

“The former Yugoslavia, and especially Bosnia, represents an important strategic link between NATO’s western and eastern wings (connecting Turkey and Greece with Italy and the future NATO members – Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary).

It so happens that the same route, the so-called “Green Interstate,” also connects the various Muslim enclaves between Bosnia and Turkey (see the map, also published with that 1995 article). The Bihac-Sarajevo-Gorazde-Pristina-Skopje-Instanbul line marks the way Islam is supposed to expand from Turkey into Europe.

That’s why the Sarajevo Muslim government fought tooth and nail to keep Gorazde and Bihac, while giving up relatively easily on the less strategic enclaves of Srebrenica and Zepa (further north).

That’s also why the American globalists – liberals or conservatives alike – have been backing the Bosnian Muslims – the truth be damned at times. One of them is Warren Zimmermann, a member of the Council for Foreign Relations (CFR), a liberal-minded Yale graduate, and the last U.S. ambassador in Belgrade.”

 

SERBS BECAME “DESIGNATED VILLAINS” BECAUSE OF THEIR TRADITIONAL FRIENDSHIP WITH RUSSIA

And now, 22 years later, let’s look at the upshot of all these wars which, for the ignorant, including the local ethnic groups, had been characterized as “ethnic wars.”

But that was just a cover story. The real reason was that following the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the territory of the former Yugoslavia represented a political vacuum. And NATO, meaning Washington, wanted to grab it before the Russians did.

That is why the Serbs, the largest ethnic group in Yugoslavia before the wars (40% – see the map) were picked as Designated Villains. It was because of their Orthodox Christian faith and the traditional friendship and alliance with Russia.

The rest was just a smoke screen – the way the forces of the New World Order sold this war to the local Yugoslav and the world.

PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING, OR IN KOSOVO IN THIS CASE

And the proof is in the pudding, or Kosovo in this case.

In that same 1995 article (“Green Interstate”), written on the day the Bosnian war officially ended, I predicted that the next Balkan war would be over Kosovo.

Lo and behold, in 1999, the entire NATO threw its military might against Serbia in order to grab this strategically important Serbian province.

Now, 22 years later, the US base Bondsteel in Kosovo is the largest military installation Washington has built in Europe since WW II.

 

Furthermore, Washington and its vassals have even minted Kosovo into a new “country” although more than half the world (geographically – see the map) is still refusing to go along with such a land grab.

Also, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and Albania are all now NATO countries, in addition to Turkey and Greece which had been NATO members before the Yugoslav wars.

Which means the US has now achieved its strategic objective of cutting off Russia from the Balkans, and therefore, that part of the Mediterranean Sea.

COSTS OF WAR AND BIGGEST WAR CRIMINALS

And at what cost did US/NATO achieve its strategic objective?

At least 140,000 people killed, 2.4 million refugees, and another 2 million internally displaced (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugoslav_Wars).

 

And then the monsters who caused such carnage and suffering (Clinton, Blair, Chirac, Chretien, Schroeder, etc. – see the photo), had the audacity to prosecute others for war crimes?

 

Which is why the verdicts by the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague amount to MOCKERY OF JUSTICE, a fig leaf covering the bigger crimes of much bigger criminals.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 28, 2017

HOW SERB DUMMIES FOOLED NATO DUMMIES – REVISITED

When I filed that editorial “Final word on Yugoslavia’s disintegration: WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?” (https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2MH) a few days ago, I thought I was done with that topic which I rarely visited in the last 15 years since I stopped working as a war correspondent. But it was not to be.

There is a story buzzing around the internet in the last couple of days which is sending the lamestream media into apoplexy.  A Serb general, who was convicted by the Hague Kangaroo Court for alleged war crimes during NATO’s bombing of Serbia, has been invited to teach at the Serbian Military Academy (https://goo.gl/8oLoV3 – US News and World Report; or https://nyti.ms/2i0ksUI – New York Times).

Do you want to know what General Vladimir Lazarevic’s and his bosses’ General Nebojsa Pavkovic’s real “crimes” were?

They made fools out of the NATO pompous asses.

 

Reading the above story made me chuckle ear-to-ear, as I recalled two editorials I wrote 17 and 11 years ago respectively of HOW SERB DUMMIES FOOLED NATO DUMMIES. Here are links to these two stories and the photo album of Serb decoys:

Meanwhile, the Serb general who has upset the lamestream media’s and NATO’s apple cart, went on Serbian television recently (Nov 18) and shared in a lengthy interview some additional details about how the Serbian military outwitted the mighty NATO in during the 1999.

When the Serbs rolled out their troops and equipment out of Kosovo after the peace treaty was signed in June 1999, “the NATO generals were nearly fainted,” he said. Because after 78 days of bombing, during which NATO dropped 23,000 bombs and missiles, more than 95% of the Serbian military arsenal remained intact.

“We were saving them for when and if the ground attack came,”General Lazarevic explained. “For example, they only hit 7 out of 750 tanks we had in Kosovo.”

And how did they manage that?

By building over 3,000 “dummies’ which left the same imprint on the NATO radars as the real tanks. Ditto re. the phantom MIG’s made out of wood which NATO kept hitting.

“That’s what they’ve been mostly hitting with their multi-million dollar bombs,” he said.

 

 

 

That, and the civilian targets, I might add. Like these in Nis, the third largest city in Serbia, where NATO used cluster bombs designed for maximum casualties among the civilians (see https://www.truthinmedia.org/Tour-de-Serbia-99/Nis/nis-photos-1.html).

 

HOW I WAS CONTACTED WHILE IN SERBIA BY THE CLINTON WHITE HOUSE VIA AN INTERMEDIARY

Alas, the ground attack never came.  Because Bill Clinton and his “powdered prince” Wesley Clark, who commanded the NATO attack on Serbia, didn’t have the balls or the stomach for it. And it’s a good thing they did not. Because it would have been slaughter. And a lot more American and British families would have lost their loved ones.

You see, according to General Clark’s and other top NATO estimates, the war on Serbia was supposed to last 7 to 10 days (see https://www.truthinmedia.org/Kosovo/Peace/ps8.html, June 24, 1999). By middle of April 1999, however, both Clinton and Clark and other NATO co-belligerents were already getting desperate.

While I was in Belgrade during the bombing (in mid-April), for example, I was contacted over an open phone line by a Washington source who said he had just spoken to Bill Clinton at the White House.  My source said Clinton was appealing to Americans of Serbian descent to try to procure a peace negotiations with the Belgrade government. So he wanted to see what I can do while I was on the ground in Serbia.

Of course, I refused to do any such thing. Trying to bail out war criminals like Clinton and Clark was the last thing on my mind while their bombs were raining on my native city,  But I did meet with two top Serb generals in Belgrade the following day. And was impressed with their resolve to fight on no matter what.

Here’s an excerpt from my report on that day:

“Sometimes, the truth comes out in dribbles, years after an event has taken place.  Two new stories out of Belgrade about NATO’s 1999 war on Serbia make this point.  To appreciate their significance, however, we must turn our clocks back to April 16, 1999…

That Friday, Day 24 of NATO’s war on Serbia, NATO had launched its first daytime bombing raids on Belgrade.  The air raid sirens went off mid-morning, just as this writer was meeting with the Serbian Patriarch Pavle, the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church.  From then on, daytime attacks became routine.  Such an escalation of war was a clear sign that NATO leaders were getting exasperated.  The bombing was supposed to last 7-10 days and result in a surrender of Serbia, according to a pre-war estimate by General Wesley Clark, then the supreme NATO commander.  Yet here we were, already in the fourth week of the war, and there was no let up in the Serbian resolve to fight back.beog4-17.jpg (22337 bytes)

What followed was a wild and woolly Saturday night, Day 25 of NATO’s war on Serbia.  Salvos of anti-aircraft artillery fire (AAA) filled in the audio gaps between detonations of NATO bombs and missiles.  It was a horrifying symphony of death and destruction orchestrated from Brussels by one General Clark, and from Washington by one draft dodger Bill Clinton.  Ground shook as the cold spring air whipped up by explosions occasionally swirled around this writer’s head like a mini-tornado.  Belgrade was getting it, Novi Sad was being pounded (the second largest city in Serbia), Sremska Mitrovica was also taking heavy hits. But the worst off was Mount Fruska Gora, that lies between these three cities.  It was being raked over by NATO bombers as if it were a meadow (click on the image left for a detailed map of this area and of the Balkans).” (from http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/NATO_secrets.html)

 

MEETING WITH GENERAL PAVKOVIC AND HIS GENERAL STAFF

A few months later, in September 1999, during my post-war Tour of Serbia (http://www.truthinmedia.org/Tour-de-Serbia-99/tim99-10-1.html), I also met and had breakfast with General Nebojsa Pavkovi in Nis, Serbia.  As commander of the Third Army, Pavkovic was General Lazarevic’s boss at the time.

 

After a cordial conversation with General Pavkovic and his top officers (General Lazarevic may have been among them, though I honestly do not remember him), General Pavkovic presented me with a book – recognition of my service to the Truth during the war (see the photo).

Like Lazarevic, Pavkovic was also charged with and convicted of war crimes by the Hague kangaroo court. Pavkovic is now serving a 22-year sentence in Finland. Lazarevi was released on December 2015 after serving 2/3 of his 14-year sentence.

MILOSEVIC’S STRATEGIC ERROR WHICH ULTIMATELY COST HIM HIS LIFE

So agreeing to that peace treaty in June 1999 while his army was still virtually intact was a STRATEGIC ERROR on the part of Milosevic, Serbia’s president at the time. Because it opened the door to NATO to march into Kosovo unopposed. And it ultimately cost him his life.

It was just a matter of time before the tables were turned, and Milosevic, along with the Serb generals, ended up being rounded up and charged with war crimes by the Hague War Crimes Tribunal. Milosevic died there under mysterious circumstances in March 2006 (see Who Says There Is No Death Penalty at the Hague, Mar 11, 2006 – http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/Milosevic.html).

Meanwhile, back to General Lazarevic, in recognition of his cunning military skills and tactics, he received a medal from the Russian Minister of Defense, General Igor Sergeyev, before being carted off to the Hague in 2005 to face the New World Order charges.

So not only is Gen. Lazarevic qualified to teach at the Military College in Serbia for having made such fools out of NATO, if the NATO military had an ounce of humility, he should been invited as lecturer to the West Point and/or Sandringham.

 

And now, with that as a preamble, check out my 2006 editorial, about NATO’s SECRET LOSSES How Serbian Air Force Outwitted World’s Greatest Military Force and Inflicted Heavy Losses on NATO Planes, Helicopters and Personnel in Bosnia, Albania – http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/NATO_secrets.html.

The “NATO Doctrine”

“A military alliance of 19 nations and 780 million people; with over half of the world’s gross economic product, possessing two-thirds of the global military power, ganged up on a tiny nation of 10 million. For 78 days, NATO terrorized the people of Serbia, dropping 23,000 bombs and missiles on them in 36,000 sorties. Yet the Serbs remained unbowed and uncowed.  This is not hearsay.  I saw their defiance with my own eyes during the six days I had spent under NATO’s bombardment.” 

(An excerpt from Bob Djurdjevic’s global speaking tour, Fall/Winter 1999)

The “Clinton Doctrine”

“Bomb the civilians and the civilian structures until that country’s military can’t stand to watch it anymore.” [(Late) Col. David Hackworth, one of America’s most decorated soldiers]

Here’s a video story about these Serbian Air Force attacks on NATO (in Serbian),

It is a story about several daring counter-attacks by the Serbian Air Force during NATO’s war on Serbia. On April 18, 1999, they attacked and destroyed 17 NATO aircraft and 3 rescue helicopters at the Tuzla, Bosnia airport.
On April 13 and 26, 1999, they staged one of the most daring raids since in Europe since WW II. Flying low, barely just the ground level to avoid detection in a coordinated mission from two airports, one in Serbia one in Montenegro, four Serbian Air Force Seagulls G-4S hit the NATO troops and the Apache attack helicopters at the Rinas airport in Tirana, Albania. All four returned to their bases unharmed.
Don’t look for Hollywood to make a movie about it. Bill Clinton and his administration never acknowledged these losses in Tuzla and Tirana. But the fact that their planned Apache and ground attacks from Albania never took place speaks volumes about the effectiveness of the Serbian Air Force raids.

GENERAL MLADIC SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON BY UN KANGAROO COURT

Victors’ Justice on Display Again at the Hague: Dutch Judge Ejects Defendant from Courtroom before Sentencing

“THIS IS ALL LIES… THIS IS A NATO COURT”, SHOUTS DEFIANT SERB GENERAL BEFORE SENTENCING

A Mockery of Justice: General Mladic Sentenced to Life in Prison by UN “Kangaroo Court” at the Hague

Minutes before the Presiding Judge of the UN War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague was to pronounce the court’s sentence in Serb General Ratko Mladic’s trial, the defense asked the court for either adjournment on account of Mladic’s health (high blood pressure – 180/80 – tested twice by a courtroom nurse), or to dispense with the reading with the lengthy summary and proceed directly to sentencing (see the video below).

At that point, the presiding judge Alphonse Orie of Netherlands asked Mladic to sit down. The Serb general remained standing defiantly and shouted (in Serbian) “this is all lies… this is a NATO court.”

The court TV had cut off Mladic’s microphone but his loud voice carried through the courtroom so it can be heard on this video.

Thereupon, the judge ordered the defendant bodily removed from the courtroom. So General Mladic was forced to hear the court’s life in prison sentence in a separate room.

This macabre ending of a six-year long trial, the last of the major cases from the wars in the former Yugoslavia which the UN War Crimes Tribunal has handled, was a fitting finale of a mockery of justice which has been on display at this court in the last two decades (see “Put UN Justice on Trial,” Aug 1998, “The End Game Is Near,” May 1996, “Defiant Serb General Ejected from Courtroom,” July 2011, Witness: Chance for “Perennially Troubled Region” (Balkans) to Become Model for Conflict Resolution Elsewhere, March 2012, and  “MY WARTIME DIARIES: VICTORS’ JUSTICE ON DISPLAY AT THE HAGUE”, March 2016).

ANOTHER COURT EJECTION IN 2011

This was not the first time Mladic was thrown out of the courtroom by Judge Orie. The two have been feuding throughout the trial. In July 2011, when this case opened, the Serb General sounded just as defiant as he was today at the end of his long court ordeal (see “Defiant Serb General Ejected from Courtroom,” July 2011),  Here’s a video clip from that 2011 court hearing:


A MOCKERY OF JUSTICE

The case against Mladic, 74, was the last for the UN War Crimes Tribunal to pass a verdict on. The conviction is likely to fuel even more resentment in Serbia against the West. Of the 161 individuals indicted by the ICTY, 94 were ethnic Serbs, compared to 29 Croats, nine Albanians and nine “Bosniaks” (a nationality Washington invented after splitting up former Yugoslavia).

Only a handful of Serbs, including politician Milan Milutinovic, General Momcilo Perisic and Yugoslav army captain Miroslav Radic, were acquitted by the tribunal, compared to well over a dozen defendants of other nationalities.

BIGGEST WAR CRIMINALS STILL FREE

But the greatest miscarriage of justice is that the biggest villains, the ones who pulled the strings of their puppets who caused the Balkan wars of the 1990s, and who later on led the 78-day long bombing of Serbia by NATO in 1999, are still at large (see NATO WAR AGAINST SERBIA – 15 YEARS LATER: WHY? – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-eA, March 2014).

Here are some of them:

Victors’ justice on display at the Hague? You betcha. As Solon (a Greek philosopher – c.630 BC- c.555 BC) noted some 28 centuries ago:

“Laws are like spider webs. If some poor weak creature comes up against them – it is caught. But the bigger one can break through and get away.” (Solon)

As long as these criminals are free to roam the earth, the UN War Crimes Tribunal is nothing but a “Kangaroo Court.” Just as the Nazi and the Soviet political courts were.

UPDATE NOV 22, 2017
Reactions to the Mladic verdict…

MLADIC’S CONVICTION WAS A FORGONE CONCLUSION

“The NATO powers have had their show trial” (Bosnitch)

a good video interview to watch:

The general was declared a war criminal by the NATO powers even before the court was formed, so it is clear that he was “determined” to be found guilty in any case, journalist and political analyst John Bosnitch told RT.
RT: Is this a verdict that you anticipated?
John Bosnitch: This verdict was anticipated even before the court was formed. During the civil war in Bosnia, the European powers, which were backing the Muslim and the Croat side, were calling General Ratko Mladic a war criminal even before the court was formed to try him. He was never given a presumption of innocence even from the first day.
RT: Mladic was accused of crimes against humanity. This is a very high-profile case. Are you confident that all of those who committed such crimes during the war in Yugoslavia have been brought before the tribunal?
JB: The point is that the tribunal was a one-sided tool of the NATO powers. The purpose of the tribunal was to find one side guilty, and that was the Serbian side, because they were accused of being war criminals long before the court was formed.
 
There is no surprise about the way it was done. What is surprising is that anyone, anywhere expected even the slightest chance that General Mladic might be acquitted… The NATO powers have had their show trial; we have had the media reports upon it.

VERDICT: DANGEROUS PRECEDENT FOR FUTURE US INTERVENTIONS

This verdict also creates a potentially dangerous precedent as it could be used by the US to justify future invasions launched without any internationally approved mandate, international affairs commentator Marko Gasic told RT.
“This verdict was necessary primarily for the US, to find someone guilty of genocide is to create yourself a false moral mandate to stop future supposed genocides,” he said. “On the basis of this verdict, the USA will give itself a right to attack anywhere, anytime with its acolytes to [defend] its own interests.”
Gasic also said that the Mladic trial was “a tribunal financed by the US, Saudi Arabia and George Soros.” According to Gasic, it had only one purpose: “to achieve the prosecution of a targeted nation – the Serbian nation.”

BILL CLINTON DEMANDED 5,000 BOSNIAN MUSLIM DEAD BEFORE INTERVENING MILITARILY – Bosnian Muslim President in April 1993

Marko Gasic [@3:30 min of the video]: “In April 1993, Bosnian Muslim president Alija Izetbegovic said he had been told by Bill Clinton he needed 5,000 dead Muslims in order to have a pretext or an excuse for a military intervention, i.e., bombing of the local Serbs.”

“And that way, America would get its first mandate to bomb abroad without a UN authorization, or indeed, without anybody’s authorization.”

UPDATE NOV 23, 2017

WHO SAYS THERE IS NO DEATH PENALTY AT THE HAGUE?

International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague Claims Its Sixth Victim – March 11, 2006

The inhumane treatment of General Mladic at his sentencing by the chief Dutch judge Alphonse Orrie reminded this writer of a Truth in Media editorial he penned nearly 12 years ago, when Slobodan Milosevic became the 6th Serb defendant to die behind bars of the Hague War Crimes Tribunal.

Here’s the opening paragraph from that piece. You can read and see the rest if you click on the link that follows.

PUT THE UN JUSTICE ON TRIAL

“SCOTTSDALE, Mar 11, 2006 – Who says there’s no death penalty at the Hague? (the International War Crimes Tribunal). This morning, the sixth prisoner of this kangaroo court was found dead in his cell – Slobodan Milosevic, the notorious former president of Serbia a.k.a. Yugoslavia a.k.a. Serbia and Montenegro. Only five days ago, Milan Babic, the former president of the Serbian Republic of Krajina (in today’s Croatia) was also found dead in his cell. Suicide was alleged. The cause of death in Milosevic’s case is not known at the present time.

A coincidence? Sure. What are the odds of six men, all Serbs (!), dying in prison? Actuaries would have a field day calculating them. Babic, for example, was only 50. Milosevic himself was only 64. Just last week, the Court refused his request for medical treatment in Russia where specialists were waiting to treat his heart ailment.

Alive, Milosevic, with his quick wit and sharp tongue representing himself in the court, was a threat to everyone in the New World Order established – from Bill Clinton on down. He simply knew too much and was ready to talk. In fact, he was awaiting the court’s ruling on his request to subpoena Clinton as witness.

Borislav Milosevic, former Yugoslav ambassador to Russia who lives in Moscow, blamed the U.N. tribunal for causing his brother’s death by refusing him medical treatment in Russia.

”All responsibility for this lies on the shoulders of the international tribunal. He asked for treatment several months ago, they knew this,” he told The Associated Press. ”They drove him to this as they didn’t want to let him out alive.”

Milosevic asked the court last December to let him go to Moscow for treatment. But the tribunal refused, despite assurances from the Russian authorities that the former Yugoslav leader would return to the Netherlands to finish his trial.”

For more, see…
http://www.truthinmedia.org/ Bulletins2006/Milosevic.html

ALTZAR: Just like General Mladic, I might add. Before his sentencing, Mladic had also asked to go Russia for medical treatment for his extremely high blood pressure. The Russian government guaranteed his return to the Hague after the treatment. The court refused. Just like they treated Milosevic.

Will Mladic become the next victim of the UN Tribunal’s inhumanity?


UPDATE 2 – NOV 23, 2017

SOME REACTIONS TO MY MLADIC SENTENCING POST

From a Russian FB friend – Nov 23, 2017

Аля Мусина : Как жаль что в то время Россия была слабой. Наши руководители предали братьев- сербов и допустили разрушение такой прекрасной страны Югославии. Но все же мы хоть немного но сделали. Остается тайной, кто предложил перебросить российский миротворческий батальон, который в тот момент был в Боснии и приказал десантникам пройти маршем 600 километров и занять аэродром в Косово. Колонна из 200 солдат, которым предстояло остановить НАТО.

FB TRANSLATION: It’s a shame that Russia was weak at that time. Our leaders have betrayed the Serb brothers and have allowed the destruction of such a beautiful country of Yugoslavia. But still, we did a little bit. It remains a mystery who proposed to deploy a Russian peacekeeping battalion, who was in Bosnia at that time and ordered the desantnikam to March 600 kilometres and to occupy an airfield in kosovo. A convoy of 200 soldiers to be stopped by NATO.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic You are well informed, Аля Мусина. I met the commander of that Russian battalion in Sarajevo in July 1994 when I worked in Bosnia as a war correspondent. I did not want to photograph anyone for security reasons. But here’s a shot of downtown Sarajevo I took from the Serb front lines which were close the positions of that Russian peacekeeping unit.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic The day before, I spent nearly the entire day with General Mladic and his top officers and their HQ in Han Pijesak. This is a photo someone took of us just before we broke for lunch in the mess hall. The chef served an excellent grilled trout.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic Here’s an excerpt from that story: “I noticed that [Serb commander, name withheld] was wearing a small Serbian flag-type pin attached to his T-shirt just above his heart. “I got the pin from a Russian officer,” he said. “Then I just turned it upside down.” Everybody laughed (the Russian flag consists of white-blue-red horizontal stripes; the Serbian flag of red-blue-white stripes – see below).

As if guessing my thoughts, the Serb commander went on to talk about the many unsung heroes who have served under him on the Trebevic front. Some of them were Muslims and Croats, he said. They had escaped from the city below and joined the Serb forces. “One of them stepped on a land mine, had a leg amputated below the ankle, and he still returned to the front to fight for us,” he said. – for more, see.. https://www.truthinmedia.org/ Vignettes/Bosnia-diary-94.html

MORE REACTIONS TO MY POST ABOUT GENERAL MLADIC SENTENCING

From a Greek FB friend – Nov 23, 2017

Σοφια Καρας (https://www.facebook.com/ELEleutheriEllinida): GENERAL MLADIC IS A GREAT HERO AND A PATRIOT FOR ALL THOSE STUPID NEOGREEKS WHO BELIEVE THAT ISLAM IS ASSIMILIATED THEY ARE SUCH AN IDIOT TO BELIEVE THEIR MASONS AND JEWS POLITICIANS AND CANNOT LOOK UP NORTH …See More

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic Amen re. your comment about Gen Mladic. In July 1994, while I was working as a war correspondent in Bosnia, I spent nearly an entire day with General Mladic and his top officers and their HQ in Han Pijesak. This is a photo someone took of us just before we broke for lunch in the mess hall. The chef served an excellent grilled trout.

Σοφια Καρας: He is a great Hero, but Europeans are so stupid they did not realize that he was fighting for all White European Peoples, not just for Serbians, now , let them die from islam in their cities daily the islamists are killing them in France, Germany, in Barcelona in Amsterdam, Bruxelles, Nice, all these countries who bombed Serbia now their citizens are daily being killed by islam!

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic to ΣΣοφια Καρας: Yes. He and I spent a long time talking about the geopolitical significance of the war he and the Serb army were fighting. He was quite aware of what you are saying here. Alas, the Bosnian Serb political leadership thought they could negotiate with the US and NATO crocodile. Which is how and why the crocodile ate them up in the end.

Σοφια Καρας: I always said that the Islamization of Europe initiated by the establishment of this fake nationality of “bosniaks” then it continued with another fake nation that of Kossovo, but this was only the beginning in Greece they established (this communist regime that runs the country now) the Sharia Law, the plan is to create a new Islamic State by cutting pieces from all three countries Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey.

In France, 50% of the population is already islam but they don’t want to say that, in London they elected Islamic Mayor, and in Germany they are so scared to make new election because the first antislamic party AFD in Europe, will gain higher %. The jewish controlled Networks called “fascists and Nazists” those Europeans especially Eastern and Central Europeans who wish to stay Humans and away of Islam, and they allegedly claim that Democracy and Human Rights is Islam and their so called refugees islamists

Please tell me how come all so called refugees in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia are ONLY ISLAMISTS? Arent they other populations suffering in this planet?

The Kallergi Plan is very old and is to create a new shitty color race out of White Race which is to be extincted. We have nothing against Muslims but they have 80 nations on this planet why they need ours too? As far as the media that they consider Europeans and Americans who deny islamization undemocratic but islam is democratic, well, then why dont’ they send them back to this Democratic paradise of …Saudi Arabia! This is the Model Of Islam, Saudi Arabia!

From a Dutch friend Wouter Wijnaendts – Nov 24, 2017

Wouter Wijnaendts: “I do fully agree with the comments of your Greek friend and as I wrote the real criminals are still walking free out there. The left liberal parties in Europe let the Trojan Horse in or ‘feeding the crocodile’.

It is already going wrong and it will become worse, no doubt about it. Germany is trembling to make new election and the fact that the AfD could gain a higher percentage of votes. In any case, in The Netherlands, the Dutch government seems to take tougher action against Islam.

Minister Blok banned controversial Iman Fawaz Jneid from the Hague neighborhoods of Transvaal and Schilderswijk last week. He is not allowed to preach in and around the bookstore on Cilliersstraat for a period of six months.

According to Blok, the imam preaches an intolerant message that contributes to the radicalization of young people. The Hague mayor Pauline Krikke pushed for this area ban, according to the broadcaster. In their statement the Islamic organizations write that the imam has never been convicted of incitement or spreading hatred. They call the area ban a selective anti-Islam measure that restricts the rights and freedoms of the Dutch Muslim.

“Such a suppressive measure does not contribute to maintaining or promoting a harmonious society. To push dissidents into the corner through shaky legislation is counterproductive”, they write.

Fawaz Jneid was previously sent away from the As-Soennah mosque in The Hague for conducting illegal marriages, the broadcaster reports. He also caused controversy by cursing murdered film maker Theo van Gogh and politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

The imam responded to the area ban against him last week. “This is the second step in the war against Salafism in The Netherlands”, he said to NOS. He also said that he is against extremism and that he often stops young people from going to Syria.

On November 2, this Iman lost a legal proceeding in court, were he tried to abolish the ban of six months of Minister Blok. In vain. Anyways he now uses Facebook to continue with his hate preaches and has more than 4000 followers.

For more see: https://nltimes.nl/2017/08/21/ islamic-organizations- criticize-justice-mins-ban- controversial-imam

I liked the remark, that Muslims have 80 nations on this planet, so why they need ours too?” [Wouter Wijnaendts, Dutch cartoons also enclosed].

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: I liked the cartoons. “Father of a nation” may be a bit too much, but the Kangaroo Court has certainly made Mladic into a martyr in Bosnia. Ditto re. Karadzic.

As a matter of fact, at the request of that Greek lady whose comments inspired you to write this (Sophia Karas), I will be posting profiles of all major wartime leaders – Milosevic, Karadzic, Mladic, Perisic – and all major foreign ambassadors in Belgrade – all of whom I had met with a number of times during the war. So stand by for that…

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: During our noontime hike today, I told Elizabeth about your Imam story. She was appalled though not surprised.

I also said, that “it is regrettable that now the Dutch authorities have to resort to denying one of its citizens freedom of speech. If this imam’s preaching was indeed inciting riots and violence, why didn’t just arrest him and throw him in jail, instead of putting a muzzle on him for 6 months and making him look like a martyr to his followers?”

To me, that seems pretty stupid and shortsighted.

As for the general assault by the New World Order on Europe and European cultures, you may recall that I warned about that nearly 20 years ago in this column, among others (see (A BEAR IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, 1998 – http://www.truthinmedia.org/ Columns/chronicles-dec98.html) . And I predicted that forced immigration will be one of the most destructive weapons the globalists would use against Europe. The Euro being another one (also see… €URO WAS DOOMED FROM THE START, EVEN BEFORE ITS BIRTH, July 2015 – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-11x).

EPILOGUE BY THE AUTHOR: ABOUT MY WARTIME DIARIES

I spent over 12 years covering the Balkans wars and conflicts as an independent journalist (1989-2002). Over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes during that time. Because the wars were largely incited by foreign powers, more specifically – the United States and Great Britain.

Why?

So they could fill the political vacuum in Yugoslavia created by the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991). And then co-opt most of the Balkans nations into NATO.  But to do that, they first had to create a problem to which the ultimate solution would be a NATO takeover.

During my work as a war correspondent, I met with many of the major players is this tragedy in which over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes. The major protagonists included top statesmen, army chiefs, high-level diplomats of the U.S., Britain, France, Canada, Russia and Belgium, and literally hundreds of other individuals I had come across on the front lines as well as in the boardrooms. hawthorne-sophia

As always, I kept careful and copious notes about these conversations and events I witnessed. After each of those field trips to the Balkans, I would file a copy of my wartime diary with the Chief Archivist of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in California. That’s just in case something happened to me. But my stipulation was that my diaries may not be available for public viewing for a period of at least five years after the war’s end. I did not want my conversations with principals in this war drama to affect in any way the outcome of the war or the subsequent war crimes trials at the Hague.

Well, now that it has been over 20 years since the end of the Bosnian war, and that all of the Hague trials are just about over, I have decided to make my four most important diaries public.  They can be accessed as PDFs by clicking on the following title pages.

HILLARY’S “RUSSIAN RESET” GAFFE: STUNNING EXAMPLE OF STUPIDITY AND INCOMPETENCE – ALSO, HILLARY AND PUTIN: FROM WARMTH TO SCORN

Stunning Example of Stupidity and Incompetence: HILLARY GOOFS ON RUSSIAN “RESET” TRANSLATION

Also,

“HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED”- NOR LIKE A RUSSIAN RULER SCORNED

Introduction

Most Americans are aware by now of HIllary Clinton’s criminal or corrupt activities, both as Secretary of State during the first Obama administration (2008-2012) or in her prior and subsequent life. To get away with such travesties, one would have to be either extremely smart or have very powerful friends.

Well, by the time you’re finished reading this story, you will realize that it was the latter – powerful backers – that allowed Hillary to get away with murder(s) and other criminal or treasonous activities.  Certainly not her smarts. Because she demonstrated early on in her tenure as Secretary of State that she is both extremely stupid and stunningly incompetent. 

“RUSSIAN RESET:” HILLARY’S FIRST MAJOR FOREIGN POLICY GAFFE

Hillary’s first major foreign policy initiative after being confirmed as Secretary of State was to improve the United States’ relationship with Russia. To that end, she traveled to Geneva, Switzerland in March 2009 to meet with the Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov.

At the meeting, Hillary presented Sergei Lavrov with a red button with the English word “reset” and the Russian language Latin alphabet transliteration “peregruzka”. It was supposed to be the Russian word for “reset”. Clinton explained that she wanted to reset relations between Russia and the United States.

“We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?” Clinton asked Lavrov.

“You got it wrong,” Lavrov said. “This says ‘peregruzka,’ which means overcharged.”

In other words, the gift implied hostility, rather than peacemaking.
But Lavrov took pity on Hillary and the two pressed the button anyway.

ALTZAR: “We have worked hard to get the right Russian word,” said Hillary. 
 
The State Department has has a budget of $65 billion and 13,000 employees whose job is to speak and understand foreign languages.  And they all “worked hard” to get the translation of a single word wrong? I just did it with Google Translate in less than 15 seconds (see below).
Inline image 1

That’s how Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State started – with a major public gaffe on a world stage in Geneva.

And now that kind of a dolt wants to be president? Or was she picked by the New World Order powers that be for the role just because she is a useful idiot like GW Bush willing to carry out their devious schemes without question?

UPDATE Aug 8, 2016

HILLARY AND PUTIN: FROM WARMTH TO SCORN

“HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED”- NOR LIKE A RUSSIAN RULER SCORNED

“Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned” (William Congreve [1670-1723], The Mourning Bride).

Scorned

When Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State in Jan 2009, improving the U.S. relations with Russia was one of her top priorities. In March 2009, she traveled to Geneva to meet with Sergey Lavrov, Russian foreign minister, to make that point. Despite a linguistic gaffe she committed (see HILLARY GOOFS ON RUSSIAN “RESET” TRANSLATION), Lavrov accepted her olive branch and passed it on to the Russian leader at the time – Dmitry Medvedev.

Hillary’s new policy paid dividends. Initially.

With Putin focused on domestic matters during a four-year stint as prime minister, Medvedev opened up a new corridor for U.S. forces and materiel heading to Afghanistan as part of the U.S. surge in the war. After missile defense concessions by Obama, the two nations sealed their most ambitious arms control pact in a generation. Washington and Moscow united on new Iran sanctions. Years of trade negotiations culminated in Russia’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

Hillary made Russia feel as if had become “one of us,” a full-fledged member of the New World Order globalist club. It was a bait that Medvedev gullibly swallowed. But not Putin, again thanks to Hillary’s machinations elsewhere in the world – Libya.

U.S. Libya Intervention Set a Precedent As Medvedev Blinked

Even before Putin’s first two terms as president, Russia had always opposed U.N. Security Council action that might lead to a leadership change. As America’s European allies sought a military intervention against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, Clinton play-acted the role of skeptic, pretending to refuse to jump aboard at first. When she finally did, it proved critical in persuading Russia to abstain (i.e., yo tacitly approve of the action).

The Hillary-sponsored rebels overthrew Gadhafi five months later. Check out this excerpt from “Hillary Clinton’s ‘Moscow Spring’ ended as Putin returned to power” – THE NEWS TRIBUNE – https://is.gd/bdmJsV)

“It was the first time that Putin publicly criticized Medvedev,” said Michael McFaul, Obama’s main Russia adviser at the time and later U.S. ambassador in Moscow. “When things went poorly and not according to plan as we had promised, I think that was the beginning of the end for the reset.”

Relations soured further by the end of the year (2011). Putin won a new, six-year presidential term in March 2012.

Fast-forwarding to June 2012, “seeking Russia’s cooperation, Obama and Clinton avoided any talk that might threaten Russian equities in Syria, including a large naval base there. Their message was clear: The U.S. wouldn’t try to pull a future post-Assad government out of Moscow’s orbit.

It didn’t matter. When the U.N. proposed a peace plan that involved ushering Assad out of power and included penalties for noncompliance, the Russians balked. Faced with stalemate, the U.S. and Russia arrived at a formula for a new government comprised of individuals chosen by the “mutual consent” of Assad and the opposition.

Although Clinton claimed credit for the June 30, 2012, compromise in Geneva, it appeared to be Russia’s objective all along.”

Either way, Hillary’s “Russian Reset” was all but dead in water.

Hillary did make one final push to try to save it.  With Obama busy with his second election campaign, she led the U.S. delegation at the APEC summit in Vladivostok, Russia in September 2012. Addressing the summit, she congratulated Russia on joining the WTO and said it could pay off big for Moscow.

“The World Bank, for example, estimates that by effectively implementing its WTO commitments, Russia could increase its gross domestic product by about 3 percent in the medium term, and as much as 11 percent over the long run,” she said. “So it pays to join the rules-based global trading system. And Russia’s trading partners stand to benefit as well. We believe American exports to Russia could double or even triple.”

Hillary and Putin even engaged in some private schmoozing, as evident from these photos.

U.S.-RUSSIA  DETENTE WENT DOWNHILL AFTER SEPTEMBER 2012 HILLARY-PUTIN MEETING

  • But the warmth soon evaporated as John Kerry replaced Hillary in early 2013. Soon, he and Obama set sights for an invasion of Syria. And Putin publicly called Kerry a liar.
  • And then in June 2013, Snowden happened.
  • And then in February 2014, they State Department and its various stooges like John McCain and Hillary engineered a coup in Ukraine.
  • And then in March 2014, Russia grabbed Crimea back.
  • And the Cold War was back full on.
  • By late July 2014, Hillary compared Putin to Hitler as she urged the European countries to impose sanctions on Russia in the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 over Ukraine. Which the Russian military proved was the western design carried out by the Ukrainian government.
  • By then, Hillary’s “Russian Reset” had turned into a “Russian Permafrost.”
  • And in 2016, Hillary called Putin a “bully” and blamed him for many of her election woes, including the hacking of the DNC emails.

Investor’s Business Daily: HILLARY A PUTIN PAWN?

And then just a few days ago, the Investor’s Business Daily published new revelations from Peter Schweizer, the author of the book “Clinton Cash,” and Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart, which showed that Hillary’s campaign Chairman John Podesta “sat on the board of a small energy company alongside Russian officials that received $35 million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund.”

Making things worse, Podesta never fully disclosed the relationship, as the law requires. But of greater concern is Clinton’s strange and mutually beneficial relationship with Russia, the IBD says. Because it led to Hillary Clinton helping Putin build Skolkovo, a high-tech community meant to be “the Russian equivalent of America’s Silicon Valley.”

Here’s an excerpt from IBD Aug 1, 2016 story:

It’s yet another stunning example of the Clinton Foundation’s growing list of conflicts of interest, suggesting that Hillary used the State Department’s offices to line her family’s pockets through the Clinton Foundation. Don’t forget that, with her email carelessness on her homebrew server during her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary has already exposed the United States’ most secret information to the Russian government. As radio talk show host and law professor Hugh Hewitt noted Monday: “Hillary is already a Putin pawn.”

And then came the blowback – the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC emails. Not to mention Russia helping Turkey’s president Erdogan fight off an attempted July 15 military coup, which appears to have been a botched CIA operation.

And that brings us back full circle to where we started:

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned.” Which we can now amend to:

Hell hath no fury like a Russian ruler scorned. Lest we forget, Vladimir (Влади́мир) means World Ruler or Peace Owner in Russian.

But that’s probably something the State Department’s 13,000 employees are still “working hard” to figure out, to paraphrase Hillary’s lame gaffe. 🙂

UPDATE AUGUST 10, 2016

HILLARY CLINTON STRATEGIST CALLS FOR ASSASSINATION OF JULIAN ASSANGE ON NATIONAL TV

“Illegally Shoot the Son of a Bitch” (Beckel, Hillary’s strategist about Julian Assange)

You would think that calling for someone assassination publicly on national TV would be good cause for arrest and criminal charges being laid. Evidently not so if a person is part of Hillary Clinton’s gang.

Take a look at Bob Beckel calling for assassination of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange on national TV:

“We’ve special ops forces. A dead man can’t leak stuff… and I am not for the death penalty… illegally shoot the son of a bitch.” (Hillary Clinton strategist Bob Beckel)

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 9.02.21 AM

WAS MURDERED DNC STAFFER WIKILEAKS’ SOURCE?

On the other hand, here’s a video of a TV interview Assange gave to a Dutch TV network yesterday in which he all but confirmed that the murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich may have been the source of the DNC email leak (discussion starts at 8:42 min of the video).

ALTZAR: Now I understand why Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information about this DNC staffer’s murder.

NIEUWSUUR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1qZFpJOqhg (Dutch subtitles)

ALTZAR: Boy oh boy, things are getting really ugly out there.

“Tempt not a desperate man,” Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet. For desperate men do desperate things.

Hillary, her New World Order sponsors, the DNC and GOP and the lamestream media are all getting desperate. For the first time in over a century, they are LOSING. And they feel the ground shifting under them. So they are putting up one last desperate stand with no holds barred.

This revelation also makes it quite funny that Hillary, the DNC and the rest of the establishment media immediately upon the Wikileaks release of the damaging emails engaged in deny, distract and deflect tactics – blaming Putin and Russia for hacking into the DNC server.

Well, desperate men do desperate things. Or in DNC’s case – desperate women who seem to be in charge of the DNC at the top.

The Baby Boomers, however, especially the middle-aged women who are apparently Hillary’s most ardent supporters, may take a good long look at this image.

Chelsea Clinton’s contemptuous husband Marc Mezvinsky had ‘nothing to say’ to his investors (some Hillary contributors) despite losing 90 percent of their $25 million

  • Mezvinsky refused to apologize to investors despite losing nearly $25 million of their money in a gamble on the Greek economy
  • Those investors include wealthy Clinton family supporters, some of whom have contributed campaign money to either Bill or Hillary
  • Mezvinsky  persuaded clients to pour cash into the struggling European country in the hope it would bounce back and deliver massive profits
  • When Daily Mail Online asked Mezvinsky – outside his $10 million Manhattan apartment –  he refused to discuss the Greek tragedy
  • Marc’s father  Edward Mezvinsky, pleaded guilty to 31 charges of felony fraud in 2001 and spent five years in federal prison
  • He admitted scamming his friends and family out of $10 million in a Ponzi scheme.

And now, here’s a quick analysis of the trials at the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, starting with last week’s Karadzic judgment, followed by an insight about how the Americans and the British duped the Serbs into taking Srebrenica, and with that, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

VICTORS’ JUSTICE ON DISPLAY AT THE HAGUE

FORMER BOSNIAN SERB LEADER RADOVAN KARADZIC GUILTY OF GENOCIDE, WAR CRIMES (NPR)

March 24, 2016

Also, HOW THE SERBS WERE DUPED INTO TAKING SREBRENICA (Bosnia)

After a trial that took nearly 7 years and 500 days of court testimony, the three judges of the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague did what the New World Order powers that be expected of them at the outset. They found the former Bosnian Serb karadzic_wide-b3872b11570158dfa9fa38dcd89cc913e2d37547-s800-c85president Dr Radovan Karadzic guilty of of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and sentenced him to 40 years in prison.

Since Dr Karadzic is 70, the verdict means a virtual life sentence.

Ominously, the sentence was pronounced today March 24, on the anniversary of NATO’s attack on Serbia in 1999. Yet none of the criminals who ordered those crimes against humanity have been charged with such crimes (Bill Clinton, Gen Wesley Clark, Xavier Solana, Madeleine Albright, and other leaders of the NATO countries who ordered and participated in the attack (see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1kP).

MY TESTIMONY AT THE HAGUE TRIAL

Karadzic-Bob-Djurdjevic070312

Four years ago, I gave testimony during Dr Karadzic’s trial about my meetings and conversations with him and other participants in the Bosnian war during the 1990s, when I worked as a war correspondent from the Balkans.

By chance or by providence, certainly not by design, I just happened to be here actually during the alleged Srebrenica massacre in July 1995. And I spent most of that day with Dr Karadzic and other senior government leaders, such as Momcilo Krajisnik and Dr Nikola Koljevic. I also published a contemporaneous story about it – “On the Run…” – A Bosnian Wartime Vignette – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Vignettes/On-the-run-(Bosnia).html. Which is how the Hague prosecutors learned about me when they asked me to testify.

I said in my testimony at the trial that, “I (have) found that often times disinformation was passed on to the American public and other Western public not by outright lying, but (by) the deception by omission, by omission of the salient facts,” this writer said answering a question about the western media deceptions posed by the Defendant. “And I saw it as my mission to fill in these gaps so the full truth be known. Because without the full truth, there cannot be a full reconciliation, and without the (full) reconciliation, there cannot be real peace and harmony.”

I also said that I saw no evidence from my conversations with Dr Karadzic that he knew anything about any alleged massacres in Srebrenica. But the judges did what they were expected to do – deliver a guilty verdict anyway.

HOW THE SERBS WERE DUPED INTO TAKING SREBRENICA (Bosnia)

What follows below an excerpt from a Nov 2015 interview with Robert Baer, former CIA agent who was active in Yugoslavia during the start of the Balkans wars. As usual, some who do not want the full truth about the dismemberment of Yugoslavia to come out have tried to cast doubts about the veracity of this interview,

Screen Shot 2016-03-26 at 12.08.51 PMI cannot vouch for everything that is attributed here to Robert Baer. But I can say two things:

First, Baer is a very well respected author and a former CIA agent with a conscience and courage to speak the truth (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Baer).

Second, what Baer said here about Srebrenica not only fits with what I saw and heard when I was there (in Bosnia) as a war correspondent during the exact time Srebrenica was taken by the Serbian army. It actually does not go far enough.

The Serbs were duped not only by the Americans (CIA and diplomats), but also by the British. In fact, it is my humble opinion that the British role in encouraging the Serbs to attack Srebrenica was greater than that of Washington (see see “PERFIDIOUS ALBION STRIKES AGAIN”http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim97-1-7.html).

Serbia_in_the_Yugoslav_Wars

Confession of a CIA Agent: They Gave Us Millions to Dismember Yugoslavia

“My boss, who was formerly a US Senator, stressed repeatedly that some kind of scam would go down in Bosnia. A month before the alleged genocide in Srebrenica, he told me that the town would be headline news around the world and ordered us to call the media. When I asked why, he said you’ll see.

Srebrenica should be blamed on Bosnians (Muslims), Serbs and Americans – that is us! But in fact everything has been blamed on the Serbs. Unfortunately, many of the victims buried as Muslims were Serbs and other nationalities. A few years ago a friend of mine, a former CIA agent and now at the IMF, said that Srebrenica is the product of agreement between the US government and politicians in Bosnia. The town of Srebrenica was sacrificed to give America a motive to attack the Serbs for their alleged crimes.”

(An excerpt from Bob Altzar Djurdjevic’s war time diaries)

ALTZAR: Not just Americans. The British also played a part of encouraging the Serbs to attack Srebrenica. I know this firsthand. I was there. I was with the late Dr. Nikola Koljevic, vice president of the Bosnian Serb government, on July 13, 2015, the day after the Serbs took Srebrenica. Here’s an excerpt from my wartime diary:
koljevic“His (Koljevic’s) brother, a playwright, has never been very active in politics. Which is why he was surprised to have received an invitation to attend a party at the British Embassy in Belgrade celebrating the Queen’s birthday.
During the cocktail reception, Koljevic’s brother was approached by the British ambassador, Ivor Roberts, and given the following message, as if in passing:
12414075575088298f35860237299566_v4big“The Queen would have no objections if the Serbs in Bosnia were to settle the territorial disputes on the ground.” Koljevic figured that that was the British government’s “green light” for the Bosnian Serb Republic to launch its assault on the Muslim enclaves in Eastern Bosnia (Srebrenica, Zepa and Gorazde). Which, of course, the Bosnian Serbs did in July.”

Four months later while meeting with some of my British intelligence contacts in London, I had this story confirmed and embellished:

      “LONDON, December 5, 1995 (Tuesday)  (a meeting at the hotel with XX, a former British intelligence MI6 operative – 15:30 to 16:40) 

U.S. Green Light “Hint” Re. Srebrenica

XX said that he “knew for a fact” (“I have a copy of the letter”) that the U.S. gave the Bosnian Serbs a “green light” to take Srebrenica and Zepa. He said he wouldn’t tell me who it was that did it, but that this person had written to Karadzic’s government and advised them to feel free to attack Srebrenica. But that this “source” had “couched the advice in four layers of disclaimers about how he wasn’t sure that this was accurate information.”

TiM Ed.: Only five hours later, I found out that this “mystery” person was. No wonder another U.S. source had expressed doubts about this supposedly pro-Serb SOB, when he showed up at this source’s Belgium apartment with two German agents. This leftist was either a double agent or was duped into being a conduit.

I said to XX that the Americans weren’t the only ones trying to con the Bosnian Serbs.

“Your (British) government did it, too,” I said. “Which only goes to show you that they have all conspired to f… the Serbs, not just the Americans.” 

XX seemed genuinely stunned about the revelation to do with the British treachery.”

NOTE: Ivor Roberts, the former British ambassador to Yugoslavia with whom I have also met a number of times, both and the British embassy and at his residence, is now president of Oxford’s Trinity College. He was knighted by the Queen in 2000. So he is now Sir Ivor Anthony Roberts KCMG.

RUSSIA SPEAKS OUT IN DEFENCE OF KARADZIC, SERBIA, ALLEGES BIAS OF HAGUE WAR CRIMES COURT

Furthermore…

ALTZAR (Truth in Media): Of the 161 people indicted by the court, 94 of were Serbs, 29 were Croats, 9 were Albanians, 9 are Bosnian Muslims. Image11

Of the 94 indicted Serbs, 70 were convicted and sentenced, only 1 acquitted, and the rest died before the sentence was pronounced.

  • Of the 29 indicted Croats, 19 were convicted.
  • Of the 9 indicted Bosnian Muslims, 4 were convicted.
  • Of the 9 indicted Albanians, 2 were convicted.

Those are the FACTS.

What happened in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995 was a civil war. All parties committed crimes as it always happens in a war. But the vast majority of indictees were Serbs. And the Serbs accounted for an even greater majority of convictions.

DEMOGRAPHICS BEFORE THE WAR

The ICTY court’s bias appears even more egregious when you consider the Bosnian and Kosovo demographics before the war.

In Bosnia, the Muslims accounted for 44% of the population, the Croats 17% and the Serbs 31%. The balance to 100% were “Yugoslavs.”

In Kosovo, prior to the 1999 war, there were 83% Albanians, 10% Serbs and 7% other ethnic groups, according to the demographic report to the Court.

As of the 2011 Census, however, only 1.5% of the current Kosovo population were Serbs. Ironically, it is the Serbs – the victims – who were tried and convicted of “ethnic cleansing” in the media. And now in the courts, too.

CONCLUSION

So now that you know these FACTS, You can judge for yourself whether or not the Hague War Crimes Tribunal was biased against the Serbs. And understand why the Russian government felt compelled to speak out on behalf of the Serbs and the truth.

GREED & ILLUSION OF CHOICE: NOBODY OWNS ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE

COMMENT: NOBODY OWNS ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE

A reaction to Prof Robert Reich’s piece “The Conundrum of Corporation and Nation

The problem with corporatocracy like ours in America is that it is driven by Greed. “Making money” is a euphemism for Greed. Which has come to connote “Goodness” thanks to our corrupt systems of government. Since Greed has no bounds, a society which allows it to be its overriding principle is doomed to be consumed by Greed. in other words, perish.

As utopian as it may seem, since we have been all brainwashed to believe that “making money” (Greed) is okay, – and even Prof. Reich accepts it), our only salvation is in SHARING not EXCLUDING (by claiming ownership).

That’s because NOBODY OWNS ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE, NOT JUST ON THIS LITTLE PLANET. Sooner or later the Universe and Mother Earth remind us of it with their celestial and tectonic actions that wipe out tribes, nations, or even continents (e.g., Atlantis, Lemuria).

REINCARNATION OF FASCISM: “MADE IN AMERICA” VERSION

  • John Pilger is an Australian, Sydney-born, award-winning journalist and filmmaker (click here for his bio).  Two days ago, he published at his website an editorial on the current state of global affairs under the headline “Why the rise of fascism is again the issue.” This time, we are witnessing the “made in America” version of fascism. Pilger’s comparisons of it to that Nazi Germany rendition of it are compelling.

    Here’s the link to John Pilger website and his original post:

  • Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: There are some parts of this John Pilger piece that are worth highlighting. For example, this is what he said about…

    NATO’S ATTACK ON SERBIA:

    “The “humanitarian war” against Libya drew on a model close to western liberal hearts, especially in the media. In 1999, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair sent Nato to bomb Serbia, because, they lied, the Serbs were committing “genocide” against ethnic Albanians in the secessionist province of Kosovo. David Scheffer, US ambassador-at-large for war crimes [sic], claimed that as many as “225,000 ethnic Albanian men aged between 14 and 59” might have been murdered. Both Clinton and Blair evoked the Holocaust and “the spirit of the Second World War”. The West’s heroic allies were the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), whose criminal record was set aside. The British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told them to call him any time on his mobile phone.

    With the Nato bombing over, and much of Serbia’s infrastructure in ruins, along with schools, hospitals, monasteries and the national TV station, international forensic teams descended upon Kosovo to exhume evidence of the “holocaust”. The FBI failed to find a single mass grave and went home. The Spanish forensic team did the same, its leader angrily denouncing “a semantic pirouette by the war propaganda machines”. A year later, a United Nations tribunal on Yugoslavia announced the final count of the dead in Kosovo: 2,788. This included combatants on both sides and Serbs and Roma murdered by the KLA. There was no genocide. The “holocaust” was a lie. The Nato attack had been fraudulent.

    Behind the lie, there was serious purpose. Yugoslavia was a uniquely independent, multi-ethnic federation that had stood as a political and economic bridge in the Cold War. Most of its utilities and major manufacturing was publicly owned. This was not acceptable to the expanding European Community, especially newly united Germany, which had begun a drive east to capture its “natural market” in the Yugoslav provinces of Croatia and Slovenia. By the time the Europeans met at Maastricht in 1991 to lay their plans for the disastrous eurozone, a secret deal had been struck; Germany would recognise Croatia. Yugoslavia was doomed.

    In Washington, the US saw that the struggling Yugoslav economy was denied World Bank loans. Nato, then an almost defunct Cold War relic, was reinvented as imperial enforcer. At a 1999 Kosovo “peace” conference in Rambouillet, in France, the Serbs were subjected to the enforcer’s duplicitous tactics. The Rambouillet accord included a secret Annex B, which the US delegation inserted on the last day. This demanded the military occupation of the whole of Yugoslavia – a country with bitter memories of the Nazi occupation – and the implementation of a “free-market economy” and the privatisation of all government assets. No sovereign state could sign this. Punishment followed swiftly; Nato bombs fell on a defenceless country. It was the precursor to the catastrophes in Afghanistan and Iraq, Syria and Libya, and Ukraine.”

    ALLEGED AMERICAN SUPERIORITY AND “AMERICAN SNIPER,” THE MOVIE:

    “Uniting fascism old and new is the cult of superiority. “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fibre of my being,” said Obama, evoking declarations of national fetishism from the 1930s.
    As the historian Alfred W. McCoy has pointed out, it was the Hitler devotee, Carl Schmitt, who said, “The sovereign is he who decides the exception.” This sums up Americanism, the world’s dominant ideology. That it remains unrecognised as a predatory ideology is the achievement of an equally unrecognised brainwashing. Insidious, undeclared, presented wittily as enlightenment on the march, its conceit insinuates western culture. I grew up on a cinematic diet of American glory, almost all of it a distortion. I had no idea that it was the Red Army that had destroyed most of the Nazi war machine, at a cost of as many as 13 million soldiers. By contrast, US losses, including in the Pacific, were 400,000. Hollywood reversed this.
    The difference now is that cinema audiences are invited to wring their hands at the “tragedy” of American psychopaths having to kill people in distant places – just as the President himself kills them. The embodiment of Hollywood’s violence, the actor and director Clint Eastwood, was nominated for an Oscar this year for his movie, ‘American Sniper’, which is about a licensed murderer and nutcase. The New York Times described it as a “patriotic, pro-family picture which broke all attendance records in its opening days”.”
