Looks like Lewis is pocketing loonies from the loonies again.

``I had no idea that it was a Serb pressure group who were paying for my speaking tour. When I found out I gave the money to Aids research in Canada.''

That was 1994 - one wonders who he would donate his blood money to this time.

The need to rationalize the failure of one's mission by delegitimizing it is a fascinating phenomenon. It's interesting to see the different approaches to the problem taken by the likes of Rose and Mackenzie vs. Dalliare or Smith.

Criticism of Maj. Gen. Lewis Mackensie has appeared frequently every since he chose a non-partisan stance on the Yugoslav civil wars and is typical of the fascist mentality of many "liberals" who can't accept other points of view outside of their own. Whether or not Maj. Gen. Mackensie received some aid from Serbian groups is nothing compared with the aid that Western politicians and media receive for their racist, one-sided, biased, and ignorant anti-Serb pro-Muslim policies. Consider the $ 1 billion+ dollars loaned by the Vatican to the Croats to recreate the Holy Roman Empire. Consider the millions of dollars of drug money funnelled by DioGuardi and company in New York to all sorts of "US" politicians for their racist anti-Serb stances (recipients of this dirty money include "Gen." Wes Kanne Clark and Senator McCain.
In fact, it has been frequently argued that since the Serbs were not as financially organized as the other players in this tragedy were (Croats, Bosnian Muslims, Albanians) to pay people to support their side, they suffered so much. Americans, let's get with it! Their is no such thing as a 'free and fair' mainstream media in this country. We live in a corporate dictatorship where the mainstream media (controlled by corporations) dictate what is spoken to the masses. 99 percent of what the Western media said about Yugoslavia since 1989 has been wrong. As a result of our flawed policies, Al-Quada has a great "safe haven" in the midst of Europe in Bosnia and Kosovo. Many thanks for courageous truth-seeking people like Maj. Gen. Mackensie who are willing to challenge the "politically correct" garbage in the West to broadcast the truth of what we have done. I only wish that there were more like him. He, unlike most of the US reporters "reporting" from the Balkans was actually in Sarajevo. He knew what was going on. Recent horrific violence encountered by US troops in Fallujah is only a drop in the bucket compared to what the Serbs experienced this past 14 years. It's time to acknowledge the role of Klinton and Company in destroying global security due to pandering to Islamic fundementalism.
If more Americans really knew about this, they would be much less inclined to vote for Kerry or any Democrat at ths stage.

perhaps you could compare those different approaches for us. How does the approach of Dallaire contrast with the approach of MacKenzie, for example?
