Posted on 07/04/2007 8:42:43 AM PDT by ParsifalCA
If a Web site were created just to record the daily lies of world leaders, politicians and other invertebrates, overwork would soon wipe out its staff. But sometimes a week delivers such breathtaking dishonesty that someone has to step in to award the bronze, silver and gold. Here goes:
The bronze liar's medal for the last week in June 2007 goes to Serbian "patriots" who sought to march into Kosovo to remind the world of Belgrade's historical claims to that wretched territory - based on Serbia's defeat by the Ottoman Turks in 1389.
File this one under "What They Don't Tell You." Yes, the Serbs suffered a military calamity at Kosovo Field, where the better-disciplined Turks made short work of them. In the Serbs' national myth, Prince Lazar and his warriors were stalwart defenders of Christianity, embodying a great Serbian tradition that endures to this day.
What those Serb nationalists (who brought the world Srebrenica and still protect war criminals) leave out is that, a mere seven years later, in 1396, the Turkish sultan, Beyazit the Thunderbolt, slaughtered a huge Christian army at Nicopolis. And he did it with Serb help.
Christian knights from France, Burgundy, Flanders, England, Bohemia and Hungary had united in a last crusade to drive the Turks from Europe. The Turks crushed them - as their new Serb allies delivered the coup de grace against their fellow Christians, then chilled out as thousands of prisoners were beheaded.
Nicopolis set the conditions for a Muslim military presence in Europe for the next five centuries. Thanks, guys.
This week's silver medal goes to a regular competitor, President-beyond-the-grave Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, a concentration camp with its own flag. [more]

I think you may have coined a famous new FR word: “Whoopers” instead of “Whoppers”!
That was a series misspelling era.
Yup, that is a hugh error.
“Whoopers of the Week”—I like the sound of that, in spite of all of the hughly and seriesly stuned beebers which may result.
Yup, that is a hugh error.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m stuned and I can’t find my beeber!
Start a ping list. Whoopers of the week. Seriesly.
Soon to be followed with Hooters of the Week, I hope ;-)
PING to some lies being spread about the BRAVE SERBS AT KOSOVO!!
For some reason I was likewise struck by this thread...
