BOMBING FOR THE ALBANIANS' SAKE?

By William Markiewicz

History is a matter of balance of power but it has never been so cynically transparent as now. In the past, mostly the 'tops' were aware of it. One Communist writer, in reporting the voting struggle beween Stalin and Trotski, asked a participant: 'Why did you vote for this opportunist, Stalin?' His friend answered, 'One cannot fight the march of History.' A similar conversation occured in Germany after Hitler's victory; one of his collaborators asked him: 'What do you have against the Jews?' Hitler answered: 'You don't change the trend of History.' In the USA during Noriega's trial, one of his accusers said: 'Noriega can talk even through his ears, it wont help him.' Noriega was a CIA agent and surely had a lot to say, but only he was condemned. Even if we talked 'through our ears' nobody would listen; the brainwashed public follows the prostituted media's subliminal order: 'Let's screw the weaker!'

The allies care as much for Kosovo's Albanians as they cared about the Jews before WW2 who tried to escape Hitler's Germany on so called 'phantom ships.' Nobody let them debark and the media were reporting about Jews begging for food and water, commiting suicide by jumping into the ocean or going back to Germany, to their doom. Kosovo's Albanians are only used as the pretext to bomb Yugoslavia. The real goal is to obliterate Yugoslavia and initiate the return of the pre WW1 'order,' meaning division of the Balkans between Germany and Turkey. The NWO returns to the old concept that the Balkans are unfit for independence. The Serbs are the only ones who have an important historical past and who didn't bend to any foreign dominators; that's why the Habsburg motto: 'Die Serben mussen Sterben!' ('the Serbs must die!') has now been resurrected in spirit. That's why the world powers, while so efficiently muzzling dissident currents at home, boldly interfere abroad.

Victor Hugo described the devastating effect of a heavy barrel rolling free on a sailing ship's deck during a thunderstorm. This illustrates the political situation of the Millenium: we have an unbridled barrel smashing about -- NATO, a sailing ship -- Yugoslavia, and a still unanswered question: Where will the barrel roll next once Serbia is flattened? To Siberia?

The countless refugees report tremendous crimes that happened to them or that they witnessed. The perpetrators of the punitive expedition against Yugoslavia promise just punishment against those guilty of genocide. The difference between the Nuremberg and Hague tribunals is that while at Nuremberg there were testimonies and evidence, at the Hague there are a lot of testimonies and very little evidence. No matter how true and big the crime may be, accusations based solely on testimonies, particularly on partisan testimonies, may be fragile and unreliable because they create favourable ground for mystification. We have heard from lateral sources which usually attract little public attention that when the TV teams left a location, the dead, like Lazarus were back on their feet. Nobody was ever ready to examine the Serbian version that some dead fighters had been stripped of their uniforms and thrown into common graves, eyes gouged, throats sliced. The 'mega-rapes,' the Markale and Srebrenica massacres, recently the Racak massacre -- all were accepted as committed by Serbs without hard evidence. Clinton and others repeat the leitmotif about genocide as a justification for war. Personally I don't doubt that the Serbs could have committed atrocities but it could have happened sporadically in vengeful reaction to what happened to them and not as official policy. I base this not on personal sympathy but because I've followed this war from the beginning and saw what happened to Serbs and how the PR prostitute media treated them. The world hates Serbs as much as it hated the Jews up to now and is ready to accept any anti-Serbian propaganda. Why? Fascinating question. In hate as in love, you don't have to ask 'why?' -- both are archetypical. Superficial reasons are good enough and weakness is a bigger magnet for hatred than crime. That's why the politicians can exploit world public opinion so easily. The difference between crime and weakness is that, in the case of crime, we know why we go after the criminal and in the case of weakness we often have to make up pretexts. Crime inspires more fear than hatred while, in the case of weakness, unbridled self appointed 'justice' flies triumphantly on the wings of its own fairy tales.
