'As the journalist Alec Russell, a former Balkan correspondent, has reported, more than 90 percent of the of the war crimes in the former Yugoslavia were perpetrated by Serbs.'

What a ridiculous citation. I wouldn't accept most presstitutes statements that the sun would rise in the east.

In Serbia's defense, he wasn't the only bad guy. Just the worse.

Of course, his argument of defense against Islamic terrorism falls apart when you realize Serbs fought Catholic Croats and Slovenes, and that the rioters of Paris and murderers of van Gogh were not Balkan Muslims, but Arabs from North Africa.

Serbia has little sympathy in the world, and Slobo has little sympathy in Belgrade's younger generation. Unfortunately, thanks to his legacy, we'll have a near-permanent presence in Kosovo and Bosnia.

Do we forget so soon the aerial pictures of "mass graves" that were later debunked? Do we forget how on this very site we all called the war a "Wag the Dog" to distract from the Monica Lewinsky debacle? Do we also forget so soon that NATO entered into a war to break up Yugoslavia and give parcel after parcel of it to the damned muslims? Does anyone remember how Ron Brown was conveniently killed over there? Are the UN peacekeepers over there forgotten who protect CHRISTIANS and CHRISTIAN CHURCHES from muslim mobs? Sorry, I'm just not convinced that Milosevic was doing anything more or less than defending his country from the muslims and then from us.

Muslims sure have an awesome propaganda machine, where it deals with old Yugoslavia...

I am impressed, but very afraid that this "template" will be used by muslims elsewhere...

It’s an appealing sentiment, suggesting as it does that the man who presided over the deaths of 250,000 people in Yugoslavia in the 1990s died unsung and unmourned

And about 150,000 of them were Serbs murdered by muslims and Croatians...

After a decade of ethnic conflict in the Balkans, much of it directly incited by Milosevic, the UN Criminal Tribunal counted 11,334 bodies in 529 gravesites, with as many as 6,000 missing.

That's it?! That's the reason we put Muslims and some cronies in charge of most of the region and ethnically cleansed a million or so Serbs from it??

I am severely disappointed with Front Page and am going to have to research this guy Laskin to see why he has an axe to grind. This looks to be classic disinformation. No one with a double digit IQ could be honestly this blind.

Feh.

Even in death Slobo still manages to redirect attention away from the reality of the Balkans - while Russia was generating controversy about Slobo's autopsy, it, along with China, gave assurances they wouldn't stand in the way of Kosovo's independence.

That potential bombshell having passed relatively unnoticed, they discarded the autopsy issue as no longer necessary.

I made it through about 4 parargraphs...are there any actual facts in this article or is it an endless name-calling rant?

Frontpagemagazine has posted the Milosovic Memo, David Horowitz, are you on holidays? Jacob Laskin the scribe seems unaware the court at The Hague desperately needed a guilty verdict to ultimately do to Israel that which was done to Serbia.

This article reminds me so much of how an astrophysicist explains the origin of the solar system...wait, I have a graphic: <[>Image hosting by Photobucket

Was the Republican majority congress that voted down Clinton's authorization request for the Kosovo war also Milosevic's stooges?

I was about to get angry at Frontpage but I do remember them posting lots of "pro Serb" articles as well. In fact I am glad they publish both sides of the issue at Frontpage on this because you get to see the character of both camps and the anti-Serb camp comes off as a collection of Statists and internationalists (like internationalist and arch statist Hoplite cheering we reaching a deal with Russia and China regarding splitting up another country's terrirtory like if we were some mafia families cutting up turf).

GAB-1955 also is also trying to downplay the Serb position by mentioning the fact that the Serbs fought the Slovenes and Croats - but in his statement he is being deceptive. The Slovenes attacked Federal Yugoslav forces first and the Yugoslav army withdrew. Did some Yugoslav soldiers fire back? Sure - but to blame Serbia for the fighting in Slovenia is like blaming the North for the Confederate attack on Ft. Sumter.

The Serbs were not on a Crusade. When Yugoslavia fell apart the Serbs tried to not be ruled by Croats and Muslims - the last time the Serbs were ruled by Croats and Muslims was WW2 and they were genocided in ways that made the SS sick. Do you blame the Serbs for not wanting to live under "Catholic" Croatian rule? Especially when they ressurected Nazi era symbols? What the Serb were preplexed about was that they could not understand why the "West" took the side of Croatia who was using Nazi era symbols and the side of Bosnian and Albanian Muslims who were flirting with extremist Islamists.

I stand with the Republican congress which refused to be Clinton's stooges over Kosovo.

These Republicans who voted NO to Clinton's war were proven correct because under NATO Kosovo was ethnic cleansed of Jews, Serbs, Gypsies, and others and has turned into a crime haven black hole.

Just ask tgambill - he was Kosovo security chief- ex Marine and all around good guy (and a hero for making public Kosovo's security files). I still grieve for the murder of the British Tommy who was shot in th ehead for guarding a church - which I think was burned down eventually.

"the deaths of 250,000 people in Yugoslavia in the 1990s died unsung and unmourned"

This has been disproved already, why do they keep repeating this nonsense?

Does anyone have a link to the proof of 250,000 dead in mass graves?

On both extremes of the political spectrum, Milosevic was the victim, never the victimizer.

I have zero sympathy for Milosevic.

He did as much damage to the Serbs as he did to the Croats and non-Orthodox Bosnians. He stoked ethnic and religious conflicts to keep himself in power as ruthless dictator.

Good riddance.
