The U.S. government and U.S. media explained the mass murders of Kosovo Serbs, Roma, and other Kosovo minorities as “revenge murders”. They were “revenge attacks”. The expulsion of over 250,000 Kosovo Serbs, Roma, Gorani, and Jews was simply censored and deleted using the infowar technique of Emphasis. These infowar techniques have no basis in criminal law and violate fundamental values and tenets of morality and ethics.
The U.S. rationale was spurious: Because Yugoslav police were defending themselves and Kosovo civilians against what the U.S. State Department itself declared were “terrorists”, the Albanian Muslim population of Kosovo had some sort of right to murder any Serbian civilian and destroy 150 Serbian Orthodox Churches?
It is mindless and insane. First, based on fundamental legal principles, the Albanians are the party that is the one committing the initial criminal act: The murder of Serbian civilians and police in Kosovo to create a Greater Albania, an ethnically pure “Kosova”. How can they take revenge when it is they who are committing the initial crimes, the murders of Kosovo Serbs and other Albanians and other minorities who oppose the creation of an illegal Greater Albania?
It is mindless drivel. The Nazis too justified the mass murders of Jews as “revenge attacks”, revenge for alleged Jewish crimes against the German people. Jewish policies and actions, the Nazis argued, had led to the deaths of Germans. Now the Germans were taking revenge in “revenge attacks”. The U.S. adopted this same strategy as the Nazis.
But it does not exist in law, any law anywhere. Assuming argument that you attack me and cause me harm. I then have no right to a “revenge attack” against you. I cannot murder you and be excused for committing a revenge attack. It is preposterous and ridiculous. Murder is murder. There is no revenge exception to murder.
But this is what the U.S. government and media did. And they have succeeded. The U.S. has created an ethnically pure Albanian “Kosova”. So much for the genocide argument. There was a genocide committed in Kosovo, by the U.S., against Kosovo Serbs, Roma, Gorani, Turks, and Jews.
Such crimes only sow the seeds for future wars and conflicts.
“Revenge murders” and “revenge attacks” are terms concocted by someone or some thing. These are not natural or even common designations. Almost all murders are motivated by some aspect of revenge. The term is an oxymoron. No one who is sane would ever sanction “revenge murders”. This, however, is exactly what the U.S. government and media did. They were the ones who manufactured these propaganda constructs.
But these were not the first. U.S. propaganda and infowar/psyop techniques manufactured the term “Bosnian” to mean exclusively a Muslim from Bosnia, an ethnic term. But “Bosnia” is merely the name of a river. That is where the name comes from. In the former Yugoslavia, the terms Bosanac and Bosanci were commonly used, but they referred to Serbs, Croats, and Muslims. It was U.S. psyop warfare techniques that transformed the word to mean ONLY Muslims. U.S. psyops changed the meaning by rigidly restricting the term. Three groups were indigenous to Bosnia: Serbs, Croats, and Muslims. They were all Bosnians. But U.S. propaganda changed that to mean only Muslims.
The biggest U.S. infowar whopper, however, was the term “Croatian Serb” or “Croatian Serbs”? What is that? It is an oxymoron. Also, no one in the former Yugoslavia used that term, Hrvatski Srbi or Hrvatski Srbin. This suggests a foreign origin for that word, namely, Washington, DC, the U.S. State Department, and psyops specialists. Why was the term manufactured?
The U.S. infowar objective was to tell us how to think: Serbs in Krajina, the region of Croatia where they lived, could only live in Croatia. They could not be referred to as Krajina Serbs or simply as Serbs. That would tend to favor their self-determination rights in declaring independence from Croatia. In short, the psyop term was created by the US to deny or prevent the Krajina Serbs from separating from Croatia, something the US wanted to do only for Kosovo Albanian Muslims.
The US psyop term “Croatian Serbs” is similar to the Israeli term “Israeli Arabs”. The function is almost identical. The psyop specialist wants you to think a certain way and preclude another way of thinking. The goal in this case is to tell us that these Arabs, Palestinians, are only generic Arabs who live in Israel. If they were called “Palestinians”, then that might get one to thinking that they might have claims on Israeli territory. The same applies to the term “Croatian Serbs”. These are Serbs who live inside Croatia and have no rights whatsoever outside of Croatia, i.e., in demanding a referendum to secede from Croatia based on majority population, will of the people, and rights of self-determination.
“Croatian Serbs” was the masterpiece of U.S. psyop brainwashing. But the term “Kosovar” is also a masterpiece of brainwashing and deception and obfuscation. In the former Yugoslavia, Albanians are known as Albanci or Shqiptari, the two terms are identical. No one ever referred to them as “Kosovari” or “Kosovar”. That is an alien and foreign term. Lights should go off and red flags should appear. Kosovar is a foreign term created by the U.S. State Department. It is a term coined by the U.S. government.
What does “Kosovar” mean? It means absolutely nothing. There is no such animal and there never was. “Kosovo” is a Serbian or Slavic word that means “place of blackbirds”, even in the Shqip or Albanian form as “Kosova”. “Kos” is Serbian for blackbird. Now why would violently anti-Serbian racist Albanians adopt a pure Serbian term to refer to their ethnicity and identity? It is pure insanity and madness. This also shows that it was manufactured in the U.S. “Kosovars” are ethnic Albanians, mostly Muslim, who speak Albanian, look Albanian, talk Albanian, walk Albanian, and have an Albanian flag. Duh! They are Albanians.
But the U.S. psyop specialist gives them a national identity by giving them a Serbian name, “Kosovo”, Serbian for “place of blackbirds”. It does not make any sense. What is the objective?
Of course, the goal is the opposite of the one using “Croatian Serbs”. The Kosovars can be called “Serbian Albanians”. But the U.S. propagandist and brainwasher does not do this. Why? Because the goal is to create some sort of new nationality called “Kosovan” or “Kosovar”, a totally fake or phony creation by the U.S. government and US infowar specialist. In short, by one term the U.S. brainwasher wants to preclude secession (“Croatian Serbs”) while in the other the goal is to achieve secession (“Kosovar”).
The U.S. infowar techniques are mind numbing and endless. These are just the salient instances.
There is no question the U.S. government and media were screwing and brainwashing our minds. It did not start with the Weapons of Mass Destruction lie of George W. Bush. This is a pattern and systematic practice. They sure enjoy screwing and manipulating our minds, telling us how we have to think, in some sort of MindScrew.
Why were the Bosnian Serbs denied their inherent human right to self-determination? Why were the Krajina Serbs denied the same right to self-determination? The Krajina region was a majority Serbian area, 90% Serbian. Many parts of Bosnia were 90% Serbian. Why did the U.S. oppose their inherent right to self-determination? The Knin area of Krajina was approximately 90% Serbian majority.
But of course the way the U.S. brainwashing technique worked was in this case to ignore the Serbian majority. In other words, whether Knin was 90% was irrelevant because the U.N. had recognized Croatia’s borders.
Now with Serbia, the U.S. brainwasher took the opposite position. Yes, the U.N. had recognized Serbia’s borders, but Albanian Muslims were a majority in a small section of Serbia. It is totally arbitrary and specious and certainly illegal and criminal under international law. The U.S. can act as a war criminal and can get away with it. We do it because we can.
But it is all part of the same the same psychopathology. You are either selling “genocide” and the “Holocaust” or “Weapons of Mass Destruction” and “Uranium from Niger” and an “Iranian atomic bomb”. It is all cut from the same cloth.
Ultimately, this is about Americans. All of this MindScrew is, in the final analysis, aimed at Americans, not Serbs. The U.S. psyop specialist could care less what the Serbs think. They will think what we tell them to think. That is “democracy” and “freedom” for you.
This manipulation and deception is aimed at Americans. And when there is no accountability and feedback mechanisms, they can do as they please. They can create two Albanian states, they can detach territory from Serbia as they please. They can invade Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, or any other entity on the globe. There is no accountability and no control apparatus. The Benevolent Global Hegemon has gone berserk.

The interviews with three snipers of Georgian nationality, conducted by the Italian journalist Gian Micalessin and aired last week as a breathtaking documentary on Milan-based Canale 5 (Matrix program), still have not paved its way to the international mainstream media. That is hardly surprising taking into account the bombshell evidence against the real perpetrators and organizers of the 2014 coup d’etat in Kiev, generally known as the “revolution of dignity“.The documentary features Alexander Revazishvili, Koba Nergadze and Zalogi Kvaratskhelia, Georgian military officers who were recruited to carry out a “special mission” in Kiev by Mamuka Mamulashvili, a close aid of ...
A few months ago I received a message from a professor at the Khomeini Institute for Education and Research in Tehran, Iran, informing me that my 2010 book “War and Empire: The American Way of Life” (London, Pluto Press) had been translated into Farsi. He requested that I write an Introduction for Iranian readers. What follows is that Introduction. Two years ago the Xinhua Peoples’ Press in Beijing, China also published a translation in Mandarin.

The world has just honored yet another Armistice Day – Remembrance Day – Veterans Day for all those who lost their lives in armed defense of their nation’s right to exist and remain a free people. Nation’s like the United States, Canada and Israel pay constant tribute to those key battles and wars that once determined their continued existence and survival. But what of nation’s like Palestine reduced to mere fragments of what they once were, their once prosperous, happy villages, towns and cities filled with happy children, families and the commerce of a viable way of life, now turned ...
There is a reason that most countries polled in December 2013 by Gallup called the United States the greatest threat to peace in the world, and why Pew found that viewpoint increased in 2017.But it is a reason that eludes that strain of U.S. academia that first defines war as something that nations and groups other than the United States do, and then concludes that war has nearly vanished from the earth.Since World War II, during a supposed golden age of peace, the United States military has killed or helped kill some 20 million people, overthrown at least 36 governments, ...
Although the 2016 presidential election is still in the primaries phase, contenders have already brought up America’s failed foreign wars. Hillary Clinton is taking flak over Libya, and Donald Trump has irked the GOP by bringing up Iraq. But what of Kosovo?
The US-led NATO operation that began on March 24, 1999 was launched under the “responsibility to protect” doctrine asserted by President Bill Clinton and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. For 78 days, NATO targeted what was then the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia – which later split into Serbia and Montenegro – over alleged atrocities against ethnic Albanians in the ...
One of rock's greatest albums is Pink Floyd's 1973 Dark Side of the Moon.This somber, surrealistic album paints a picture of what society has become, both 44 years ago and now. Such is this present American Empire, replete with our phony wars, excessive militaristic mindset and of course the drive for super wealth by greedy corporations and equally greedy individuals.Those of us who "knew better" foresaw the economic bubble burst of 2008 years before it occurred. So many of our friends and neighbors cared not a damn about the phony wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, and later on against Libya and now proxy ...
In years before 2014, the Afghan think tanks would opine that the US may wind down Afghanistan’s conflict through the end of this year, inferring that the goal of founding the nine large military bases across the country is almost accomplished. Many would delightfully say that Afghanistan is phasing into a new chapter with the flames of war quelled as the US government insisted on troop withdrawal.Entrenching military headquarters in strangers’ territories has no excuse or legal ground under any circumstances. The Afghan nation would cast aside objection to this permanent military foothold thanks in most part to the bitter ...
The genesis of the world, the myth of creation speaks of seven days.1 Six days of divine labour whereon the seventh the lord of the universe rested. No one, not even the angelic general staff of the combined heavenly hosts, could fathom what led the Creator to engage in this feat.2 But tradition has established that man — here the gendered reference is intended — as being created in the image of the Creator — aka “God” — should also rest on the seventh day. Depending on the sect into which one was born and bred, this may be called ...
Every now and then we are being bombed by some terms in order to get used to them and accept them as something regular, accurate and correct. Such a thing happened with the toponym of Kosovo.The same method was applied in Bosnia and Herzegovina, i.e with the toponym of Bosnia, which once was an Orthodox Christian medieval kingdom, meanwhile global media portrays it as it’s exclusively Bosnian Muslim land regardless the fact that history, old books speak differently. In that sense here are the facts easy to check:Encyclopedia Britannica, Edition 1971Reference: EB, Edition 1971, Volume 3, page 983, Entry: Bosnia, ...
The Russian government’s sincere and diligent effort to prevent chaos in Syria and additional massive refugee flow into Europe, all the while avoiding conflict with Washington and its vassals, has been brought to an end by Washington’s intentional attack on a known Syrian army position, thus wrecking the cease fire agreement that Russia sacrificed so much to achieve.The response to this fact by the Obama regime’s ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, reveals that Washington will lie to the hilt in order to achieve its agenda of reducing Syria to the same chaos as Washington has reduced Iraq and Libya. ...
The facile and indiscriminate use of the term fascism has led to a widespread misunderstanding and misuse of its meaning. Asked to define fascism, most people would respond in terms such as dictatorship, anti-Semitism, mass hysteria, efficient propaganda machine, mesmerizing oratory of a psychopathic leader, and the like.Such a pervasive misconception of the meaning of the term fascism is not altogether fortuitous. It is largely because of a longstanding utilitarian misrepresentation of the term. Fascism is deliberately obfuscated in order to sanitize capitalism. Ideologues, theorists and opinion-makers of capitalism have systematically shifted the systemic sins of fascism from market/capitalist failures ...
The U.N. Organization was established in 1945 for the very security reason – to preserve the peace in the world. We believe that the governmental bodies and administrative structures of the U.N. have to be composed by the proved democratically oriented politicians and magistrates but above all this requirement has to be applied to the post and function of the U.N. Secretary-General. Nevertheless, in the history of the U.N. there is at least one (extremely) problematic appointment to the post of the U.N. Secretary-General: Kurt Waldheim from Austria.On the official website of the U.N. about its fourth Secretary-General one can ...
Latvia is actively preparing for one of the most important political events of the year. Parliamentary elections will take place on October 6, 2018. Submission of the lists of candidates for the 13th Saeima elections will take place very soon – from July 18 to August 7, 2018. But the elections campaign as well as all political life in the country face some problems which require additional attention from the authorities. And these problems spoil the image of Latvia as a democratic state which respects the rights of its people.
This is a well-known fact, that the image of the state ...

On April 7, two U.S. Navy battle ships USS Porter (DDG-78) and USS Ross launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at al-Shayrat military airfield in Syria’s Homs province from the Eastern Mediterranean. The U.S. strikes particularly targeted the main landing strip, aircraft, radio locators, air defense system and fuel stations.
The strike was approved by U.S. President Donald Trump, who said that the Syrian Air Force used affiliated al-Shayrat air base to prepare chemical attack on the city of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib. “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and ...
What is global politics? It is when a white man sends a black man 20.000 km. far away from home to kill a yellow man, while at home this white man is living on the land occupied from a red man From 1989 onward, as a consequence of the dissolution of the bipolar world in global politics, Security Studies as an academic discipline re-born again its political importance. From the very traditional point of view, it was only the national-state to be considered as the reference object of the security issue that was usually to be obtained by military power and diplomatic ...
This essay goes to the matter of Kosovo; where the Western states (NATO & the EU) has determined Serbia is not fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Albanians) on their own (Serbian) territory but the now purported (by the West) independent Kosovo is fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Serbs).The EU position seems to embrace an attitude of ‘never mind the inconvenient fact’ that recent Kosovo ‘leaders’ are being arrested and delivered to an international tribunal for crimes against ethnic Serbs (includes organ harvesting), also not to mention what amounts to mere ‘lip service’ (no concrete action or ...
Just as the Republican convention demonized Hillary (“Lock Her Up”), so the Democrats are demonizing Donald Trump. They refuse to support any policy that he backs, even when he says something progressive.One might think that at least Bernie’s supporters would applaud Trump’s left-wing transformation of the old conservative, pro-corporate neocon Cheney-Bush core of the Republican Party. But nobody had a single good word to say about Trump’s assertions that he would wind down confrontation with Russia, reduce military spending on the grounds that NATO is obsolete, and oppose the TPP and TTIP as well as rewrite NAFTA’s terms.The Democrats are ...
We hear that Kosovo and Metohija’s frozen conflict is not conducive to Serbia’s interests, but nobody notes that Serbia stands to lose even more if negotiations under EU auspices continue under the same pattern and trend. Judging by the ongoing course wherein Serbia has been only delivering concessions and Prishtina’s clique only gaining control over the whole Province, Serbia may end up delivering irrevocably all her rights and interests and receiving nothing in return.Except promises of EU membership by 2027 as “indicative” year! Rarely is heard that such a EU/USA deal “territory (of Kosovo and Metohija) for EU membership” would ...
Serbia today is a member-State of United Nations (U.N.), after the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was split into several nations during the early 1990’s when war broke out between Serbian General Milosevic and neighboring nations. After partition, Serbia is still the most powerful “state” of the former Yugoslavia.“Kosovo”, the term used for the territory of southern Serbia, is de-jure recognised as a “state” by over 110+ “states”, but is not a “state” itself, as per the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States (1933), and is not a “state” at the U.N. where 2/3rd positive vote is ...
