To blow away some of the anti-Slavic war propaganda coming out of D.C., Brussels, London and Paris, over the current NATO aggression in Ukraine, a window on antecedent events of the 1990s in the Balkans has been flung open by a reactivated SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE (of which we are honored to be among the founding members). Here are links to its latest dispatch as well as to some other relevant articles.
It's excruciating to watch innocent men, women and children being sacrificed to the morbid militarist appetites of advanced Waste Capital AGAIN. And though their memories have never been extinguished from our hearts (even as the craven compradors of the illegal Kostunica government pinched out the 'Eternal Flame to the Victims of the NATO Bombing of 1999'—so as not to embarrass potential Western investors!), as we watch the horrific suffering being revisited on the people of eastern Ukraine, our recollections of lost Slavic friends and family burn deeper and hurt much more than before.
Obviously, the abject unreality that drives US/EU policy toward Russia (and China) cannot go on much longer—Reality, like Russia, is not the sort of chump you can beat. But each additional second brings another mass wasting of Human Life. These losses can never be regained and will do nothing to serve the remediation of our poisoned Human Spirit. But the courageous words of Slobodan Milosevic might cool our parched minds--and, just perhaps, remind us of the Hope we are so sadly missing.
