Milosevic's Memory Snubbed by Most Serbs
Charter News ^ | 03-17-06 | WestVirginiaRebel

Posted on 03/17/2006 4:29:21 PM PST by WestVirginiaRebel

BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro (AP)-His arriving coffin was left in the rain while airport officials signed paperwork. Its muted public display has drawn a fraction of the huge crowds he commanded in his heyday.

Slobodan Milosevic's memory and legacy are being unceremoniously snubbed by countrymen who blame the late Serbian leader for ruining the republic.

The commie traitor utterly destroyed his motherland for personal gain. And then he took the easy way out and committed suicide (like both his mother and father did years ago). A bloodline of cowards - suicide being the ultimate act of cowardice. Not a surprise.

His rule bred an atmosphere of conspiracy theorists, some of whom still cling desperately to the communist propaganda and deceptions. Like the people who think 9/11 was perpetrated by Jews and the CIA. Reality is inconvenient, so they weave fictions (hey, it is communism, no surprise).

Is the UN court a sham? Yes. Was Clinton a scumbag? Yes. But none of that changes the reality of Slobo. These are only convenient ways to change the subject (by mental midgets who also try to bolster their defenseless positions with lots of capital letters).

It's the same gang of Serb-apologists that poison all of these threads with their outrageous lies and hostile name-calling. Watch,they'll be here in no time

They exist for these threads only, there's nothing poliical in a great deal of their posts, only vile and outrageous charges, and re-writing of history.

Gathering from his less-than-well-attended service, it doesn't sound like the Serbs themselves think much of this "man".
He's tainted their reputations just as Hitler did for Germany.
There is nothing to be proud of here.

Slobo, the former communist turned ultra-nationalist, believed in nothing but his own personal aggrandizement; he caused great loss of life and much damage to the Balkans. He was like so many demagogues and opportunist we've seen before in history. It's no wonder that those who knew him best in Serbia, a nation that suffered disproportionately huge losses in WW's I and II, felt no loss with his death.

And the Slobbo apologists can't hide the fact that his own people couldn't stand him. Including his supporters from the days when he was a Commie thug before he became a Nationalist thug.

If the Nazis had won WW2 there wouldn't have been many Americans willing to tell the Nazi media how much they liked FDR.

And he pays the DU to bash Bush. He's the biggest cash cow for the Democrats. It's a no brainer of what happened in the Balkans.

Biggest blunder we committed in supporting Islamic radicals in Bosnia and Kosovo.

That's why I referred to Slobo as FR's Favorite Commie. In a just world, he should have gotten the Ceausescu treatment from his own people, instead of that sham trial in The Hague.

And some people think that in a just world Bush should be strung up for responding too harshly to Islamic terrorism. Fortunately, those people are not in control today like they were in the 1990s.

I believe the Serbians are orthodox. I'm not sure what TYPE of orthodox.
They are not catholic...in fact one of the groups targeted by Slobbo for ethnic cleansing were the catholic Croats.

Where did you get that nonsense from. Milosevic targeted no one. Lots of MSM demagoguery. The 5 year tribunal record refuted all the charges.

Check the video archives. I was astounded how corrupt the EU, UN, and Nato were.

I heard it from the Croats who were surrounded by the Serbs in Mostar.
The Croats and Muslims were trapped in the city - the guys in the hills were fighting under Slobbo.

I'm calling it a night.
The statement from this young serbian coincides with what I learned while I was in Mostar.

http://www.globalpolicy.org/intljustice/tribunals/yugo/2003/testimony.htm

I've seen the graves - I've spoken to Croats who lost their loved ones,and who nearly starved to death in Mostar while they were surrounded by snipers.
Somehow I get the feeling none of this will have any affect on your opinion.

Oh well.

The funny thing that the Clintonistas still don't get is that the Serbs themselves were on their way to doing a Ceausescu on Slobodan until the NATO bombings made it look as if he were standing against the West for something noble.

If Halfbright would have been half bright, most of the problems could have been solved with the stroke of a pen.

But that would have prevented Clinton from having the US put on the kneepads to appease the jihadist.

That's right. Slobo was their thug and he would have recieved a just sentence. He stole the money out of all Serbs bank accounts and had his secret police everywhere. The Serbs were suffering while he and his family lined their pockets.

The Serbs are the most freedom loving people in the Balkans.

How do you know the Serbs were about to turn on Slobbo?

By reading the news stories about the political unrest that was building in Yugoslavia at that time. Slobo was being challenged by several new political parties and the people were growing tired of his corrupt and incompetent economic policies. Once the NATO bombing began, all of those parties quieted down as you'd expect from a nation under attack.

Heck, even the Democrats in this country started acting patriotic for a short time after 9/11!

The news reports I read described it as "hundreds"
And the picture could be hundreds - maybe a few thousand, but "thousands upon thousands"??....no.
