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.

US-NATO military control of Kosovo serves several purposes for Washington’s greater geo-strategic agenda. First it enables greater US control over potential oil and gas pipeline routes into the EU from the Caspian and Middle East as well as control of the transport corridors linking the EU to the Black Sea.
It also protects the multi-billion dollar heroin trade, which, significantly, has grown to record dimensions in Afghanistan according to UN narcotics officials, since the US occupation. Kosovo and Albania are major heroin transit routes into Europe. According to a 2008 US State Department annual report on international narcotics traffic, several key ...
Imagine that Vladimir Putin were not a murderous autocrat and kleptocrat who has spent his fourteen years in power living up to his KGB past and dragging Russia ever back towards Communist autocracy, illiberalism, and expansionism. Imagine that instead he were one of the greatest leaders that Russia has had, whose policies have helped produce a massive rise in living standards and life expectancy, recuperation of national pride, and enforcement of the rule of law, who has tackled kleptocrats and gangsters wisely and well, whose foreign policy has on balance been realistic, diplomatic, and conducive to peace, who has presided ...
Magic, and tragic years, tend to fill the calendar of commemoration for central European patriots. There are religious intercessions; guiding symbols; omens. Then there are the calamities, the crushing battles that empty entire classes and countries.For Hungary, a country ever dreamy and mournful about such events, there are two notable disasters of rollicking value. There is Mohács 1526, where a good deal of the country’s aristocratic elite fell before the relentless Ottoman advance. The event effectively gave the Hapsburgs the ascendency to the west, assuming the role of defender against the Turkish advance into Europe.Then there is 1956, where the invaders ...
The stars came out in Hollywood on November 2nd, or at least some of them did.

Our job is to look after them.” In attendance were Arnold Schwarzenegger and actor Gerald Butler. Entertainment was provided by the singer Seal.Hollywood Jewish royalty ...
There are more questions than answers to the Crimean ‘question’.After more than two decades belonging to an independent Ukraine, the Crimean peninsula has become part of Russia, which has thereby gained an extra 27,000 km2 of territory and over two million new citizens. Ukraine and the West see this unprecedented event as annexation and a sign of the Kremlin’s neo-imperial ambitions. To countries not directly involved in the Ukrainian crisis, it is a dangerous violation of the Eurasian status quo that could cause widespread destabilisation in the area, while in Moscow’s eyes it is ‘the return of Crimea and Sevastopol ...

Well, once again, Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu astounds. One would think that there must be some limit to the bizarre statements that issue from his mouth, but no, we learn again and again that he is willing to push the bizarreness envelope to places where, like the crew of Star Trek’s Enterprise, no one has ever before ventured.His latest flight of fancy even seems to have astonished his worshipful U.S. government, which characterized his statements as ‘inappropriate and unhelpful’, harsh criticism indeed from that bastion of Israeli love. And what is it that Mr. Netanyahu has said? This writer ...
On the 16th anniversary of the country’s accession to NATO, Lithuanian Minister of Defense Raimundas Karoblis came up with a well-known myth: our state is an equal member of the alliance. “We are stronger than ever before and we are grateful to the Allies for their efforts in strengthening the defense capabilities in the region and their willingness to help when it necessary” said Karoblis.If you look at the facts, Lithuania is fighting alone with the epidemic of COVID-19 infection. However, like all other countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.You just need to look at Italy, which does not ...
A now-notorious list of ostensibly “fake” news sites — created by a liberal professor, seemingly out of thin air — spread like wildfire online in the past two days and was eagerly reprinted by corporate media presstitutes hoping to vindicate their own failed reporting on the 2016 election.But branding perfectly legitimate outlets with the same scarlet letter as those devoid of integrity deemed the professor’s list a spurious attempt to defame alternative and independent media — anyone dissenting from the left’s mainstream narrative — as a whole.This is, in no uncertain terms, a hit list — or, at least, a laughable attempt — and ...

A map of the wanted territories of the Balkan states in 1915There are many talks about nationalism among the peoples from the former Yugoslavia during the last three decades what is quite understandable taking into consideration the post-Cold War conflicts and atrocities, as a continuation of WWII crimes based on certain political ideologies,[i] committed on the territory of ex-Yugoslavia.Historia est magistra vitaeI want to argue that there is a direct link between contemporary nationalism(s) among the Yugoslavs and their national ideologies, which are developed in the previous decades and even centuries. What happened with the Yugoslavs from 1991 to 1999 ...
One of the negative characteristics of the Israeli “Left” is how it terms the military rule over the West Bank and Gaza “The Occupation.” Part of the Left even accuses Palestinians who claim there is no difference between Petah Tikva and Ariel of being like the Right, because “that’s what the Israeli Right claims.” For most Palestinians, however, this exaggerated and Orwellian talk of “The Occupation” blurs Israel’s real shame, and the skeleton buried deep in the closet: The brutal and criminal occupation of 1948.Ethnic cleansing and massive land expropriation, and then settlement of that land, are the mother of ...

The New York Times loves NATO, but should you?Judging by comments in social media and the real world, millions of people in the United States have gone from having little or no opinion on NATO, or from opposing NATO as the world’s biggest military force responsible for disastrous wars in places like Afghanistan (for Democrats) or Libya (for Republicans), to believing NATO to be a tremendous force for good in the world.I believe this notion to be propped up by a series of misconceptions that stand in dire need of correction.1. NATO is not a war-legalizing body, quite the opposite. NATO, like the United ...
One of the most confounding aspects of Donald Trump’s election as 45th President of the United States is that in the space of a year – indeed less than a year – a man with zero political experience has destroyed two of America’s most entrenched political dynasties: Bush and Clinton.Just pause on this for a moment, and place it in the context of someone who when he first appeared on the political stage as a candidate for the Republican nomination was met with ridicule and scorn. Consequently, a mainstream media and liberal commentators for whom politics is an exclusive club, ...
BELGRADE – Amnesty of crimes during NATO aggression, bilateral legalization of Camp Bondsteel in a friendly milieu, settling the Islamic world with support to their communities in the Balkans and forcing Russia out of that same Balkans, are four reasons the US supports the independence of Kosovo, writes “Sputnik”.On Christmas (according to Gregorian calendar) Michael Kirby shows up. Outgoing US Ambassador congratulates Serbia upcoming New Year. “The normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina implies Kosovo’s membership in the UN,” was the content of the “greeting card”.Apart from some kind of formalization, Kirby’s statement is not new for the local public ...
By all accounts from Greece and Macedonia, a majority in both countries will be happy that a new name for Macedonia has been agreed upon by the governments in Athens and Skopje. After years of facing Greek vetoes to join the European Union and NATO under the name “Republic of Macedonia,” the Greek government agreed to drop its opposition, so long as Macedonia change its name to “Northern Macedonia.” Northern Greeks always objected to Macedonia’s use of that name because they believed it represented a goal of Slavic and Albanian Macedonians to lay claim to the northern Greek region that ...
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir currently stated that the Syrian talks in Astana would lead to ceasefire in the country.However, in this context, the minister’s statement sounds a little bit strange as throughout the Syrian conflict, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states have been providing comprehensive assistance to Islamic State terrorists, supplying weapons, equipment and mercenaries to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. There are undeniable proofs of these “acts of good will” on behalf of Saudi Arabia.Large chemical reserves seized by the Syrian army last week in eastern Aleppo destined for the manufacture of explosives can be characterized as striking ...
Fifty years ago today, in 1967, nearly 100,000 Americans marched on Washington, DC, to protest the Vietnam War. In those days there was a mandatory draft in place, and the risk was very real that a young man just out of high school could quickly wind up 13,000 miles away, fighting an unseen enemy in jungles that didn’t need tanks or B-52 bombers to inflict fear. Worse yet was the possibility of going MIA or coming home in a body bag — just another expendable statistic in the great fight against communism. But even many of those who made it ...
“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” So Karl Marx wrote in 1843. For three generations over the course of the 20th century his atheist disciples violently sought to break their subjects of this “opium” addiction.They failed. In many though not all parts of the former communist bloc Christianity not only survived but provided the impetus for national and social revival. In some countries, like Poland, Hungary, and Lithuania, this meant Roman Catholicism. In others, like Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, and ...
