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!

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Indeed. Also see THEY BROUGHT JIHAD INTO EUROPE, WILL WE LET THEM BRING IT TO AMERICA? – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-1A4

MORE REACTIONS TO MY POST ABOUT GENERAL MLADIC SENTENCING

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.

NWO SELLING FEAR TO BUY SUBSERVIENCE

SAN BERNARDINO: THE LATEST “FALSE FLAG” OPERATION

When I wrote the editorial “Selling Feat to Buy Subservience” in May of this year, I did not expect it to be just the Part 1 of an extended series (see MAFIA TACTICS LEAD TO NEW RESTRICTIVE LAWS IN CANADA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA… LIKE THE PATRIOT ACT IN THE U.S., May 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-VB).

I should have known better. For, a plethora of false flag attacks had both preceded it and followed it.

false-flag-terrorism-can-FRA-Aus-header

Ukraine, Canada, Australia, France, France again, Turkey, Belgium, Britain and now the USA. Again. Gotta keep those sheep in a permanent state of fear.

Sheeple

false-flagActually, the predictability and the increased frequency of these false flag attacks smacks of DESPERATION by the New World Order’s self-styled “elite.” It is they who are living in a state of fear… the fear that the day of reckoning may be coming soon for dall these war criminals who are ready to trade human lives and the well-being of this planet for short-term personal gains.

They only have one play, one strategy and one goal. Which is why their “false flags” are so easy to decipher.

  • The play is – invent a crisis to be used as an excuse for military or police intervention.
  • The strategy is – PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE. Which is something this writer published, and the Truth in Media readers had a chance to see over 20 years ago.
  • The goal is – dictatorship and control of the masses, the world’s sheeple.

What happened in San Bernardino a week ago was just the latest case in point…

SAN BERNARDINO ATTACK: ANOTHER “FALSE FLAG” OPERATION, SAY SEVERAL EYEWITNESSES

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.42.06 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.40.45 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.40.26 PM

By now, most of us have seen various bits and pieces of information that suggested that the San Bernardino shooting was a staged “false flag” attack. And that the two alleged Muslim “terrorists” were actually found handcuffed and shot face down in a truck.

Here’s a 9-minute video which is worth perusing because it offers not just opinions but testimonies of several eyewitnesses who claim that the actual shooters were three tall men in military garbs who made their getaway in a black SUV right after the incident.

The video is a bit odd in that it starts out showing the footage by the Russian intelligence services of alleged illicit trade that Turkey has been facilitating with ISIS. I almost stopped watching the video at that point.

Don’t. Because the only reason that segment is that because the Russian clips were released the same day as San Bernardino. And the author is suggesting that the U.S. attack was staged in part to divert the media attention from the Russia-Turkey conflict.

Well, that’s a long shot, in my opinion. But what follows after the first minute of the video is all San Bernardino-related footage. Which is worthwhile seeing.

Here’s are the opening paragraphs from that May piece…

MAFIA TACTICS LEAD TO NEW RESTRICTIVE LAWS IN CANADA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA… LIKE THE PATRIOT ACT IN THE U.S.

To spread fear in the neighborhood, they make good on their threats. Some shops are set on fire. mafia_ii_physx_explosionSoon, others quickly fall into line and start paying up.

That’s how the Mafiosi got themselves a new security business. They got rich. They became powerful, bribing the police and some judges and politicians.

Then they decided to buy themselves respectability. They sent their children to schools and colleges. Some became lawyers, lawmakers, “respectable” businessmen…

They all had one thing in common: THEY TRADED ON FEAR.

FALSE FLAG ATTACKS: PRELUDE TO DRACONIAN LAWS

By now, most enlightened Americans know that 9/11 was a false flag attack which our Perpetual War USWashington mafia used as justification for subsequent draconian laws, wars and creations of new institutions, like Homeland Security. All this has led to a general militarization and criminalization of our society in the last decade and a half, and a shredding of our constitutional rights and freedoms by use of the Patriot Act and other means. America is now closer to becoming a police state than ever before in its 239-year history.

Now, it’s other countries’ turn to copy our bad example. The New World Order leaders have been trying to create a global state of fear as a prelude to police states among our allies. Britain first, then Canada, Australia, France… and again Britain.

And like the good little ducks falling into line, the politicians in those heretofore supposedly free and democratic societies have been aligning themselves with the Washington NWO mafia, and enacting laws that increase government’s powers and diminish the rights and freedoms of their citizens.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo (2nd L), European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Union President Donald Tusk, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Jordan's Queen Rania and her husband King Abdullah II and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu take part in a Unity rally “Marche Republicaine” on January 11, 2015 in Paris in tribute to the 17 victims of the three-day killing spree. The killings began on January 7 with an assault on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris that saw two brothers massacre 12 people including some of the country's best-known cartoonists and the storming of a Kosher supermarket on the eastern fringes of the capital which killed 4 local residents.

CANADA: Bill C-51 – From Fear to Law

Take Canada, for example. In this dramatic opening paragraph to the new Bill C-51, the editors of InsaneMedia examine Canada’s new anti-terror legislation that was recently passed by Canada’s Members of Parliament.

Are you a Canadian citizen? Does the country feel any different today? The sun still came up. You went to work, the kids went to school and the bills still need to be paid. In all the ways that matter to most people Canada will feel little different today than it did yesterday.

Make no mistake though, this is no longer the country our grandfathers fought and died for.

May 6, 2015. Remember that date. Etch it into your brain so if your children ever ask when it was that Canada officially became a pawn in the contrived global war on terror you’ll be able to tell them. May 6, 2015, the day MPs (in the face of nation-wide protests and letter writing campaigns) voted 183 – 96 in favour of enacting the most draconian set of laws to ever disgrace our once proud nation. A vote that was taken without comment or even the participation of Daniel Therrien the government’s own privacy watchdog. 

– See more at: http://www.insanemedia.net/bill-c-51-from-fear-to-law/5501#sthash.d1T0rEZT.dpuf

The article then goes on to analyze the frightening implications

“One of the more disturbing aspects of C-51 was the creation of what would amount to a secret police force. Canada’s Security and Intelligence Services (CSIS) was to be given the power to not only surveil and investigate suspects/threats in virtual secrecy, as they do now, but was also to be given the power to “disrupt” potential threats and to make arrests. All under the same umbrella of secrecy.” 

Of course, the precursor and the justification for all this came from a false flag attack on Oct 22 in Ottawa (see SYDNEY, OTTAWA: BEWARE FALSE FLAG “TERRORISM”, Dec 14, 2014).

AUSTRALIA

Ditto in Australia, Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 6.40.45 PMwhere prime minister Tony Abbott announced a toughening of that country’s anti-terrorist laws on Feb 23 (see Australia to strengthen laws to combat terror – CNN.com).

Australia will toughen its citizenship laws as part of the government’s new counter-terrorism strategy, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced in a national security address on Feb 23.

The new measures include suspending and revoking citizenship for dual nationals involved in terrorism, and also stripping certain privilege.

FRANCE

And then there is France. Already a country with some of the toughest anti-terrorist laws in Europe, the French government wasted no time exploiting its own possible false flag operation at Charlie Hebdo in early January to introduce new even tougher anti-terrorist laws (also see CHARLIE HEBDO’S BLOOD MONEY: PROFITING FROM MURDERS, TERRORISM, Jan 14).

Charlie Hebdo header

The proposed law, introduced in Parliament in March, would allow the government to monitor emails and phone calls of suspected terrorists and their contacts, without seeking authorization from a judge. Telecommunications and internet companies would be forced to automatically filter vast amounts of metadata to flag suspicious patterns, and would have to make that data freely available to intelligence services. Agents would also be able to plant cameras and bugs in the homes of suspected terrorists, as well as keyloggers to track their online behavior.

Following the shooting, the Paris Administrative Tribunal upheld a ban on an anti-Islamist rally. French police have arrested 54 people for verbally supporting or threatening terrorist acts in the wake of the terrorist attacks, including four minors and French comedian Dieudonne who is known for his anti-Semitic views. The French Justice Ministry also called on prosecutors tocrack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and support of terrorism.

BRITAIN

As for the US government, which has partnered closely with Washington in breaking of both the US and British laws (see UK COURT DECLARES UK-US MASS SPYING ILLEGAL, FEB 6, 2015), the Brits even beat the French to the punch in exploiting the Charlie Hebdo attack. Here’s an excerpt from the British Jurist (Fbe 13):

The UK on Friday (Feb 13) enacted anti-terror legislation to help combat terrorism by curbing the number of British citizens joining Islamic State (IS) and other militant groups in Iraq and Syria.

CONCLUSION: RESTORE OUR RIGHTS, REPEAL “PATRIOT ACT”

So there you have it, Washington’s NWO puppets have each staged and exploited their own versions of 9/11 and Patriot Act in the last seven months. Clearly, it is a well planned and coordinate attack on human rights and liberties by the New World Order governments, and step toward a global police state.

What were they thinking? That we would not notice it?  Or that we would, and would not care? Or that we would, and they didn’t care?

Either way, silence is acquiescence. If we remain mum about these travesties of justice, we can only expect more of the same. Or worse.

Luckily, the Section 215 of the Patriot Act which deals with surveillance is due to expire on June 1. Both the British and the U.S. courts have already ruled that these practices are illegal (see GCHQ and NSA mass surveillance during the last seven years was unlawful, Feb 6, and NOW U.S. COURT ALSO RULES NSA MASS SPYING ILLEGAL, May 9).

Let’s keep up the pressure on our Representatives and let them know that we want NO MORE SPYING! And that we want ALL of our constitutional rights restored, and the Patriot Act repealed. After all, it was based on the 9/11 deception, and thus in and of itself it is unlawful.

UPDATE MAY 13, 2015

US CONGRESS SET TO VOTE ON BILL BANNING NSA MASS PHONE COLLECTION [Guardian]

US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVES THE BILL TO END NSA’S MASS DATA COLLECTION
 
Yeah! One Down, One to Go… (US Senate)
 
WASHINGTON, May 13 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a bill that would end spy agencies’ bulk collections of Americans’ telephone data, setting up a potential showdown with the U.S. Senate over the program that expires on June 1. 
 
As voting continued, the House overwhelmingly backed the USA Freedom Act (by a 338-88 vote), which would end the bulk collection program and instead give intelligence agencies access to telephone data and other records only when a court finds there is reasonable suspicion about a link to international terrorism.
 
The bill’s fate is much less certain in the Senate, where many key lawmakers would rather reauthorize the existing bulk data collection program than approve the Freedom Act.

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE

In short, like Markale (Feb 1994, Sarajevo), 9/11, MH-17 (July 2014, Ukraine), Ottawa (Oct 2014), etc… today’s Sydney siege looks and feels like another New World Order “false flag” incident. Same patterns, same “MO,” same propaganda, same purpose.

Its purpose was to stoke the fires of war and shore up their support for the newly-minted “war on ISIS.” Just as the 9/11 did in the US against Al Qaeda. But the main goal is to scare the local population in giving up what little of their rights and liberties remain. So that the New World Order would-be masters can lord over them unobstructed.

In short, Sydney was another chapter of the… NWO flag tim99-12

Perpetual War for Perpetual Commerce

That’s the New World Order motto. The Truth in Media first discerned it 20 years ago during the war in Bosnia.

We saw it reactivated in Ukraine this year (see PROOF OF “DRANG NACH OSTEN” THEORY: NATO TO EXPAND TO FORMER SOVIET STATES, SUSPEND COOPERATION WITH RUSSIA, Apr 1, 2014).

What happened in Sydney today is merely the latest chapter in this macabre tale of global deception and conquest. The New World Order antics are becoming so transparent that they are almost predictable.

Where will the next strike hit? My top candidates are Germany, Netherlands, Spain and New Zealand… i.e., major countries that have not yet signed up for the war on ISIS.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU: FBI & DEA UNLAWFULLY COLLECTED MASS LICENSE PLATE DATA ACROSS THE US ON MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

FBI deployed mass tracking devices (cameras) across US that could record up to 1,800 license plates a minute, according to internal documents obtained by the ACLU, says London Guardian

…And So Did the DEA

As usual these days, one has to read the foreign press to find out what’s happening in our country. Just like the Soviet citizens had to do at the time USSR communist oligarchs controlled the media.4628e4da-b0dd-4c17-bc17-5ac249066d81-620x372

Anyway, the Guardian report, based on ACLU (American Civic Liberties Union) research, revealed today that NSA was not the only government agency breaking the law while collecting mass data on private American citizens. Check this out…

“Multiplied across the US, the ACLU has calculated that millions of Americans are subject to the surveillance, from which at its most extreme profiles of an individuals movement, behavior and associations could be created.

Jay Stanley, the ACLU’s expert on technology-related privacy issues, said that the heavily redacted documents released by the FBI left many questions still unanswered.

“As is so often the case, we are left with the feeling that the public should know more about the policies that the FBI has developed – if the agency has guidance relating to privacy concerns over this very sensitive technology, then the public should be told about it.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is using license-plate reader technology to photograph motorists and passengers in the US as part of an official exercise to build a database on people’s lives.DEA watching

According to DEA documents published on Thursday by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the agency is capturing images of occupants in the front and rear seats of vehicles in a programme that monitors Americans’ travel patterns on a wider scale than previously thought.

The disclosure follows the ACLU’s revelation last week about the potential scale of a DEA database containing the data of millions of drivers, which kindled renewed concern about government surveillance.

SELLNG FEAR TO BUY SUBSERVIENCE

MAFIA TACTICS LEAD TO NEW RESTRICTIVE LAWS IN CANADA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA… LIKE THE PATRIOT ACT IN THE U.S.

SAME PATTERN, SAMO “MO”, SAME PROPAGANDA, SAME GOALS IN ALL THESE COUNTRIES

NEW WORLD ORDER”S FALSE FLAG ATTACKS IN ALLIED COUNTRIES BOND THEM TO US/BRITAIN IN POLICE STATE TERROR TACTICS

In a scene from the 1920s, a new Sicilian immigrant, the future Godfather, and his Behind the Scenes Photos from The Godfather Trilogy (8)Young_Vitopals threaten some Italian shopkeepers in New York with violence unless they agree to pay for protection. To spread fear in the neighborhood, they make good on their threats. Some shops are set on fire. mafia_ii_physx_explosionSoon, others quickly fall into line and start paying up.

That’s how the Mafiosi got themselves a new security business. They got rich. They became powerful, bribing the police and some judges and politicians.

Then they decided to buy themselves respectability. They sent their children to schools and colleges. Some became lawyers, lawmakers, “respectable” businessmen…

They all had one thing in common: THEY TRADED ON FEAR.

Fast forward to the 21st century. The same mafia tactics are evident only on a much larger scale. Except now Wall Street’s Washington stooges are playing the role of Godfather’s goons. But the real Capos (Bosses) are the New World Order bankers and their corporate cronies who are pulling their strings from backstage.

They also had one thing in common: THEY TRADED ON FEAR.

FALSE FLAG ATTACKS: PRELUDE TO DRACONIAN LAWS

By now, most enlightened Americans know that 9/11 was a false flag attack which our Perpetual War USWashington mafia used as justification for subsequent draconian laws, wars and creations of new institutions, like Homeland Security. All this has led to a general militarization and criminalization of our society in the last decade and a half, and a shredding of our constitutional rights and freedoms by use of the Patriot Act and other means. America is now closer to becoming a police state than ever before in its 239-year history.

Now, it’s other countries’ turn to copy our bad example. The New World Order leaders have been trying to create a global state of fear as a prelude to police states among our allies. Britain first, then Canada, Australia, France… and again Britain.

And like the good little ducks falling into line, the politicians in those heretofore supposedly free and democratic societies have been aligning themselves with the Washington NWO mafia, and enacting laws that increase government’s powers and diminish the rights and freedoms of their citizens.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo (2nd L), European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Union President Donald Tusk, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Jordan's Queen Rania and her husband King Abdullah II and  Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu   take part in a Unity rally “Marche Republicaine” on January 11, 2015 in Paris in tribute to the 17 victims of the three-day killing spree. The killings began on January 7 with an assault on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris that saw two brothers massacre 12 people including some of the country's best-known cartoonists and the storming of a Kosher supermarket on the eastern fringes of the capital which killed 4 local residents.

CANADA: Bill C-51 – From Fear to Law

Take Canada, for example. In this dramatic opening paragraph to the new Bill C-51, the editors of InsaneMedia examine Canada’s new anti-terror legislation that was recently passed by Canada’s Members of Parliament.

Are you a Canadian citizen? Does the country feel any different today? The sun still came up. You went to work, the kids went to school and the bills still need to be paid. In all the ways that matter to most people Canada will feel little different today than it did yesterday.

Make no mistake though, this is no longer the country our grandfathers fought and died for.

May 6, 2015. Remember that date. Etch it into your brain so if your children ever ask when it was that Canada officially became a pawn in the contrived global war on terror you’ll be able to tell them. May 6, 2015, the day MPs (in the face of nation-wide protests and letter writing campaigns) voted 183 – 96 in favour of enacting the most draconian set of laws to ever disgrace our once proud nation. A vote that was taken without comment or even the participation of Daniel Therrien the government’s own privacy watchdog. 

– See more at: http://www.insanemedia.net/bill-c-51-from-fear-to-law/5501#sthash.d1T0rEZT.dpuf

The article then goes on to analyze the frightening implications

“One of the more disturbing aspects of C-51 was the creation of what would amount to a secret police force. Canada’s Security and Intelligence Services (CSIS) was to be given the power to not only surveil and investigate suspects/threats in virtual secrecy, as they do now, but was also to be given the power to “disrupt” potential threats and to make arrests. All under the same umbrella of secrecy.” 

Of course, the precursor and the justification for all this came from a false flag attack on Oct 22 in Ottawa (see SYDNEY, OTTAWA: BEWARE FALSE FLAG “TERRORISM”, Dec 14, 2014).

AUSTRALIA

Ditto in Australia, Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 6.40.45 PMwhere prime minister Tony Abbott announced a toughening of that country’s anti-terrorist laws on Feb 23 (see Australia to strengthen laws to combat terror – CNN.com).

Australia will toughen its citizenship laws as part of the government’s new counter-terrorism strategy, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced in a national security address on Feb 23.

The new measures include suspending and revoking citizenship for dual nationals involved in terrorism, and also stripping certain privilege.

FRANCE

And then there is France. Already a country with some of the toughest anti-terrorist laws in Europe, the French government wasted no time exploiting its own possible false flag operation at Charlie Hebdo in early January to introduce new even tougher anti-terrorist laws (also see CHARLIE HEBDO’S BLOOD MONEY: PROFITING FROM MURDERS, TERRORISM, Jan 14).

Charlie Hebdo header

The proposed law, introduced in Parliament in March, would allow the government to monitor emails and phone calls of suspected terrorists and their contacts, without seeking authorization from a judge. Telecommunications and internet companies would be forced to automatically filter vast amounts of metadata to flag suspicious patterns, and would have to make that data freely available to intelligence services. Agents would also be able to plant cameras and bugs in the homes of suspected terrorists, as well as keyloggers to track their online behavior.

Following the shooting, the Paris Administrative Tribunal upheld a ban on an anti-Islamist rally. French police have arrested 54 people for verbally supporting or threatening terrorist acts in the wake of the terrorist attacks, including four minors and French comedian Dieudonne who is known for his anti-Semitic views. The French Justice Ministry also called on prosecutors tocrack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and support of terrorism.

BRITAIN

As for the US government, which has partnered closely with Washington in breaking of both the US and British laws (see UK COURT DECLARES UK-US MASS SPYING ILLEGAL, FEB 6, 2015), the Brits even beat the French to the punch in exploiting the Charlie Hebdo attack. Here’s an excerpt from the British Jurist (Fbe 13):

The UK on Friday (Feb 13) enacted anti-terror legislation to help combat terrorism by curbing the number of British citizens joining Islamic State (IS) and other militant groups in Iraq and Syria. The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act [HL Bill 75, PDF] expands the current anti-terror law and includes provisions allowing [WSJ report] the UK to stop a citizen’s re-entry into the country when he or she is suspected of aiding terrorist groups and requiring internet providers to maintain communication data of UK citizens to allow the police to find individuals who may be using certain devices.

Internet providers have similarly objected to the data-maintaining provision, asserting that this imposes costs onto the companies and no benefits are provided in return.

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: 

    john_pilger_responsibility_460

  • 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.”
  •  Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Also, this on…

    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”.”

“AMERICAN SNIPER” SARAJEVO VERSION: “SERBIAN CHRIS KYLE” WAS A YOUNG WOMAN

Trebevic-Sarajevo sniper

TOP THIS PLOT, CLINT EASTWOOD: TOP SARAJEVO SNIPER WAS A SERB WOMAN WHO KILLED SERBS

The latest Clint Eastwood movie, “American Sniper,” has already grossed over $257 million in less than two weeks, and is setting box office records worldwide. It has also been nominated for a plethora of Academy Awards including the Best Picture.

So you can imagine my wife’s surprise when I told her I had no interest whatsoever in seeing such a film.

“Why not?”

“Because it promotes state terrorism and cold-bloodied murder disguised as ‘heroism.’ Because it’s American/New World Order jingoistic war propaganda. Because it incites hatred of Muslims. Just like ‘Saving Private Ryan’ promoted the hatred of Germans. Because it appeals to the lowest, bestial human instincts. Because it perpetuates the lie on which the entire Iraqi war was based. Because it’s so simplistic that it insults intelligence…”

The movie narrative sets up the Iraq war as a morality play: “There are evil terrorists, and Chris Kyle needs to kill them. It’s as simple as that.” That’s the premise of the entire plot and justification for murder (see “American Sniper is a dishonest whitewash of the Iraq war”).

It is not often that I get riled up over a movie. Especially one I have not even seen (except for trailers and reviews).  After all, Hollywood is and always has been first a foremost a tinseltown. Not to be taken seriously. Except when so many naive people get duped by its warmongering propaganda.

You see, the above box office figures suggest that more than 32 million people have already seen the film in less than two weeks!

I just shook my head in disbelief. And then I recalled my 1997 Washington Times column – “Dumbing Down of America: Dancing ’round the Golden Calf.” The New World Order elite are succeeding in stupefying America beyond their wildest dreams.

BACK IN THE DAY, WHEN SERBIAN SNIPERS WERE THE “BAD GUYS,” A SERB WOMAN TOPPED THEM ALL

Arrow Serb sniper Sarajevo 6-30-92

After several days of contemplation and introspection I finally realized why this movie grated on me so much.

It was the sheer duplicity, a double standard of the New World Order crowd that funds and promotes warmongering films like the “American Sniper.”

Back in the 1990s, when I worked as a war correspondent in the Balkans, I took a number of trips to Bosnia. Came close to and across some front lines. Had been in the sight of Sarajevo snipers. And have found out that the western media often and deliberately distorted the facts I saw on the ground.

Remember the famed Sarajevo “sniper alley?” The blame was always assigned to “Serbian snipers” who were supposedly killing innocent civilians from the hills around Sarajevo.

And many did. It was a civil war. All three parties (Serbs, Muslims and Croats) had committed crimes against humanity. But only the Serbs were blamed and later prosecuted by the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague.

To generate the American public support for the Bosnian Muslims, the western media painted the pictures in simplistic black and white terms.  The Muslims were the innocent victims of the Serb aggression. The Serbs were the “evil terrorists.”  All that was missing was a “Chris Kyle”-type hero on the Muslim side to kill the Serbs.

Sarajevo’s Top Sniper Was a Young Woman

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 9.06.08 AMWell, there was such a warrior in Sarajevo. And she was a 20-year old woman. Her code name was “Arrow” (“Strela” in Serbian). She was allegedly the top sniper in Sarajevo killing the Serb snipers on the surrounding hills (see the Associated Press, June 30, 1992 – “Woman is a top sniper in the war for Sarajevo”).

And now, here’s a bizarre twist. This intrepid fighter, the “Chris Kyle” of the Bosnian Serbian sniper Sarajevo 6-30-92Muslim army, was a Serb! Well, at least according to that Associated Press report.

A Serb killing Serbs. Top that twist, Clint Eastwood!

Good enough for Hollywood. But I as the Truth in Media founder and a former war correspondent, I had my doubts.

I spent almost the entire day trying to find out what happened to that mysterious Sarajevo “war hero.” But the trail ran dry after the summer of 1992. I never discovered her real name even a quarter century later. The only photo of her ever published was the one you see above, with her face partially covered by her hair. After 1992 – nothing. Nada. Zippo.

This is the last reference I found:

“Her code name was Strela, (Arrow) a Serb girl of 20 yrs fighting with the Bosnian army as an anti-sniper sniper. When Guerlain met her she was crying. Not remembering how many she had killed she later injured herself to quit her job” (see Daniel Guerlain story).”

Was “Arrow” a Mad Av/Hollywood Character?

Which makes me wonder if, while such a sniper may have existed, Arrow may have been elevated to her mythical hero status by the western media?

Just like in the Hollywood production of “Wag the Dog,” for example, a mental patient is made to look like a war hero. Except that the “Sarajevo Chris Kyle” would achieve the hallowed status by killing his fellow-American troops.

And we were supposed swallow that kind of a diabolical plot hook, line and sinker? 

And then there were other doubts. Lest we forget, in June 1992, the Bosnian war was barely getting under way. Things were still unraveling in Sarajevo and confusion reigned all around. The Muslims were losing. Badly. They needed a hero. And someone to hate and blame. The American media provided both.

Skilled in minting heroes and bogies, the American media came up with Arrow, a mythical Serbian female sniper who was supposedly killing her own brothers like Rambo killed the communists in Vietnam. Or like Chris Kyle killed the Muslims a quarter century later in Iraq.

And then, just like in a Hollywood movie, once her “hero” usefulness ceased, Arrow was forgotten and sent into oblivion as if she had never existed. No medals were pinned on her. No memorials erected to this Sarajevo “hero.”

LOOKING DOWN SNIPER GUNSIGHTS IN BOTH DIRECTIONS

Bosnia-94-2

Meanwhile, in July 1994, I did find myself standing on Mt Trebevic above Sarajevo and looking at the city through a sniper-like tripod (see “Excerpts from Bosnia Wartime Diaries“). And this is roughly what I saw (right).Sarajevo from Trebevic sniper

A Serbian army major, whom you see in the photo (left), took me to a double fence filled with rocks between the heavy wooden planks.

“I had this built because of the sniper fire from the city,” he explained.  “You can take some pictures from here, if you’d like. Just don’t stick your neck out too far.”

So there is no question that snipers were active on both sides in Sarajevo.  Just like this photo image reveals. They held each other in their sniper gunsights. Or maybe even killed their own people so as to blame the other side.

Trebevic-Sarajevo sniper

But you’d never know it by the western (American) media reports. The Serbs were the bad guys. The Sarajevo Muslims their innocent victims. That’s the lasting public casting of the Bosnian war.

So that’s why similar duplicity and double standard inherent in honoring Chris Kyle’s achievements as the “American Sniper” grated on me so much.

There is no honor in killing people.

Whether a sniper is an American, Serbian, or any other nationality makes no difference. Such state-sponsored terrorism is no better than the alleged other terrorist attacks. Because in the end, no matter how we dress it up, it is the individual who pulls the trigger or pushes the button.

Any decent human being must condemn all such killings all with equal fervor.

And my way of doing it is by staying away from the “American sniper,” the movie. And now also by writing this piece to explain why.

EPILOGUE

OTHER CRITICAL COMMENTS ABOUT “AMERICAN SNIPER”

I did find some comfort in the fact that I was not alone in the moral condemnation of this film. Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura, a Navy SEAL himself, slammed not just the film by the  ‘American Sniper’ himself – Chris Kyle: ‘You Can’t Have Honor if You’re a Liar’.

“A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can’t have honor if you’re a liar,” Ventura told the Associated Press. “There is no honor in lying.”

Ventura’s filed a defamation lawsuit against Kyle’s estate last year and won $1.8 million.

Kyle claimed in his book “American Sniper,” on which the movie is based, that he knocked out a man at a California bar in 2006 for saying the SEALs “deserve to lose a few” in Iraq. Kyle later identified the character he nicknamed “Scruff Face” as Ventura during several media appearances to promote the book. Ventura said it didn’t happen, and a jury believed him.

Kyle was killed in 2013 by a veteran he was trying to help. God’s reaction to “sniper heroism?”

One thing is for sure – the film has generated a firestorm of pro and con reactions all over the world. Mostly con, it seems, even in the country the likes of the “American Sniper” were sent to “liberate” (during Operation Iraqi Freedom).

In Baghdad, where much of the film is set, the movie was pulled after running for a week. The Mansour Mall theater box office employee said management made the decision “because the hero of this film boasts of killing more than 160 Muslims” (see USA TODAY Baghdad moviegoers story, Jan 29).
