Apr 3 2006 2:17PM Moscow confirms Serbian media published actual Milosevic letter
MOSCOW. April 3 (Interfax) - A copy of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic's letter to the Russian Foreign Ministry, published by the Serbian media in March, is identical to the original, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin told Interfax on Monday.
The Belgrade newspaper Politika published Milosevic's hand-written letter to the Russian Foreign Ministry for the first time on March 17.
"That Serbian newspaper published a copy of Milosevic's letter identical to the Russian Foreign Ministry's copy. We understand the letter reached the Serbian media from Milosevic's lawyers, who had earlier passed it to the Russian embassy in Holland," Kamynin said.
In the letter, Milosevic complained about improper medical treatment offered to him by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and again requested permission to undergo medical treatment in Russia," the Russian diplomat said.
Yep. Its International cospiracy to empower Al-Qaida.
Any more brillian theories?
Perhaps you missed the part where Clinton bombed Serbia for resisting the Islamofascist KLA's takeover of the Serbian Province of Kosovo? Or perhaps how this was viewed by those who want the US to hand over "Aztlan" to be independent?
Some folks you just can't reach.
Bozos like these (two misled freepers) are why AlQaeda has a network from the Middle east all the way to Europe, with Western governments defending Islamofascists terrorists who are the same ones training and arming those ou soldiers fight against in iraq.
Those pancakes done yet, boy?
Oh of course how could I be so mistaken, the UN and EU have taken a hard line against Muslims. Chechnya, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, France, the answer has been the same every time; both the UN and the EU are completely and utterly pro-islam.
I think the one just might be a little confused.
As to the other one, feh!
The entire War was about using western military to fight on the side of the KLA terrorists... it was the most unconscionable and immoral military action the US has been involved in in the last 100 years if not more..
Madeline Albright, Bill Clinton and Clark should be hanged for their actions.
The result of Clinton's actions was this:
Obviously you never read state department record about the KLA.
And this coming from a revisionist, you're too much old Geezer.
I have. The KLA started small, but expanded rapidly in reaction to Serb brutality. Most members were villagers and farmers fighting to defend their homes and their families. Here's what Senator Jesse Helms had to say about the matter:
We are endowed with those "inalienable rights," as Thomas Jefferson proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence, not by kings or despots, but by our Creator. The sovereignty of nations must be respected. But nations derive their sovereignty - their legitimacy - from the consent of the governed. Thus, it follows, that nations can lose their legitimacy when they rule without the consent of the governed; they deservedly discard their sovereignty by brutally oppressing their people. Slobodan Milosevic cannot claim sovereignty over Kosovo when he has murdered Kosovars and piled their bodies into mass graves. Neither can Fidel Castro claim that it is his sovereign right to oppress his people. Nor can Saddam Hussein defend his oppression of the Iraqi people by hiding behind phony claims of sovereignty.
Yawn. You know nothing. Perhaps you should try another subject cars or something. Sad.
About what I expected.
Perhaps this would be a good time for you to link to the State Department document(s) you're basing your comment upon.
And that simple sentence describes YOU to a 'T'.
Still pimping for WAR CRIMINAL clinton aren't YOU???
So, why don't you develop the courage of your convictions and just start refering to Serbs, Jews, and Roma as Untermensch?
So long as it's your beloved Muhammedans doing the murders, that is.
According to whom?
Richard Gelbard referred to the KLA as a terrorist organization back in '98, but that was not the State Department's position - you can refer to any of the State Department's Country Reports on Terrorism to confirm that fact. As to Clinton and Albright somehow deleting the KLA from reports and ensuring they weren't added back in once Clinton was out of office, well I'm afraid that falls into the Conspiro-theorist worldview which I don't ascribe to.
President Bush the Elder warned Milosevic about Kosovo back in '92, and had Bob Dole been elected President in '96 instead of Clinton, he likely would have acted more forcefully in regards to Milosevic. As it stands right now, American Balkan policy doesn't much change regardless of which party is in power - both Bosnia and Kosovo have seen their Muslim populations reject Islamic fundamentalism, with Bosnia's Muslims coming on board with the enforcement of the Dayton Accords in '96, and the KLA rejecting Al Qaida in '98 when Claude Kader came to offer their services.
If you are interested in Al Qaida's attempt to set up shop in Bosnia, Evan Kolmann's Al Qaida's Jihad In Europe is the authoritative tome on the subject, and as to Kosovo, nobody's written much worth reading on the subject as of yet, because there's really not much to discuss other than what happened to Kader and his 4 compatriots. The way things turned out, if you want to discuss what happens when the United States is active in an Al Qaida area, you'll have to direct your attention to Saudi Arabia, Iraq, or Afghanistan, not the Balkans.
