I consider being called a liar to be a personal attack.
If I am mistaken, correct me. But stating an opinion based on the facts as I know them is not a lie. I know you have strong feelings.
"Blaming Yugoslavia for attacking Slovenia is like blaming the North for the South's assault on Ft. Sumter. "
To this day, there are Southern partisans who consider Major Anderson's move to Fort Sumter from Fort Moultrie to be an act of aggression.
"Second lie you tell is that the Serbs were carrying out a crusade. They were not. "
However, doesn't that seem to be the revisionist position? I will accept that Serbia was fighting out of fear of foreign domination. So were the Croats and Bosnians. I wish it were different. The issues I had were that the Bosnian Serbs in 1995 pulled some stunts that were definitely contrary to the laws of war. Shelling a city is not one of them. Taking the U.N. observers hostage was.
"Your George Soros funded script has no traction here. "
That, sir, is slander. I am not connected with Soros in any manner. I request an apology.

(being dragged, kicking and screaming, into the Kingdom of Heaven....)
Your lie is that you stated that the Serbs attacked Slovenia. That is a damnable lie.
Where I come from (the North) those who start wars are the ones that fire the first shots.
Will you now argue that America's trade embargo on Japan and moving Fleet HQ from San Fran to Pearl Harbor provoked Japan?
Serbs shelled cities that Muslims and Croats used to shelter their artillery? Not as bad as when Sherman burned down whole swaths of Georgia or when Dresden was made an open air oven.
Deal with the lie above - the death toll numbers and the fact that you said the Serbs attacked (and by attacked I mean shot first) Slovenia.
