I too will be listening to see what his defense happens to be. I participated in the air war over Bosnia and watched the smoke plumes rise from numerous villages where the ‘ethnic cleansing’ was happening. I support his efforts to rid his country of Moslem influence, if true, but genocide is indefensible.
This may sound a little harsh but I think he was on the right track. In other places Muzzies are burning Churches and hacking up Christians and nobody says a word.
To this day, I still do not understand the US/NATO war on Serbia.
The country was disintegrating regardless, If Europeans felt their security was hurt, they should have taken the lead, the Cold War was long over and Russia was a basket-case, and we set up safe-havens for radical Muslims.
What did Clinton gain to make him do this?
The West was sent a thank you card postmarked 9/11,sent via air mail delivery, ironically from followers of the religion of "peace" it sought to appease.
I made these comements way back when the U.S. air war against Christians began, and I stand by them today.
He would have a fairly compelling and interesting argument is he had not tried to commit genocide. Rewriting history is not going to help his cause. It wasn’t that long ago where everyone has forgotten the atrocities he committed. I think he’s now using the war on terror and the current takeover by Muslims in Europe to try to gain some sympathy.
I find it amusing how often “my” side falls for enemy propaganda...in a propaganda war.
So lets say Radovan did get a little crazy...in defense of his family, faith, and country. I bet he didn’t firebomb Dresden. I bet he didn’t nuke Nagasaki.
So the descendants of a people who JUSTLY killed enemy civilians think this guy was out of line because he MAYBE killed a (comparatively) few civilians. You think our bombers were picking targets or do you think carpet bombing was to shock the populace into compliance?
And you sit here on your computer, in the safety provided by our ancestors, who WERE willing to use the required measures...and you criticize this man for doing what he felt was necessary. lol. lol at all of you tools who criticize him. Go join your Mohammedan brothers. May you see a table cloth wrapped with a fan belt outside your window one day, screaming for your land and family. Make sure your response is appropriate. We wouldn’t want to judge you harshly.
And if anyone takes it this way, this isn’t a criticism of Dresden or Nagasaki. It is a defense of our actions there. We should have carpet bombed Islam into submission years ago, just like we steamrolled the Nazis and the Nips.
I have always thought that Serbia deserved a break for its aid and sacrifices in WWII.
And I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that they were right or at least fighting the right enemy.
There is something of an ominous ring to your statement. For the attitude of the average Joe out there would be to say "just watch anyone try". However any actions that directly would arouse a general call to action, are not usually taken by those who seek to destroy the Constitution.
It is usually by suborning the public with political correctness. Then when bad things happen, little is done. Witness the forays of absolute outrage at airports and within the educational system. Years ago, drastic action would have been taken on the spot. Persons playing games told to depart from whence they came.
Two Canadian lawyers attempted to bring action with regard to Nato bombing in Kosovo 1999. Without success. The website still stands. Titled "Louise Arbour. Unindicted War Criminal". Arbour is some sort of UN Human Rights Commissioner. 200,000 Serbs were expelled in the Balkans at one time within the last 15 years.
The scary thing is and before anyone laughs, the bold statements being made by those cretins in Britain and Europe, are of arrests. Yes, true these statements are shrugged aside. The fact is that American former leaders have cancelled trips to Europe, over these "puny threats". I believe in France and Spain, possibly the UK.
I have never approved of "taking the law into one's own hands". What would happen if the UN people got enough clout to infringe on the rights of an American citizen, in America?
I hope it does not come to that.
There are only two truths about war that I know of, neither or which judge it right or wrong.
War is hell, and the victors write it’s history (mostly).
I also believe there can be things that are worse than war, and (no judgments here either) among them are living under dictators, surrendering a people’s identity, and surrendering to invasion.
The problem in the former Yugoslavia was that the position of “surrendering a people’s identity” was relative, to each of the major ethnic groups throughout the former Yugoslavia, with each - Croat, Serb and Kosovar seeking to carve a “pure” enclave out of the whole, and to encapsulate - territorially - all “their own”, where ever they were.
The Kosovar Albanians were no less hopefully domineering in their aims, for “their” area, but being the militarily “weaker” of the groups, they were given the international public relations role of “underdog”. For the Serbs, one can almost wish THEY had been the weaker force, because my own beliefs are that if that had been the case, that the Kosovar Albanian leaders would have been the ones now on trial in the Hague.
The problem - “a people’s identity” - did not evaporate in the Soviet Union or in the former Yugoslavia (by socialist re-engineering), and it will not go away in the states drawn from the former Yugoslavia, simply by force of the current international brokered results.
Now consider the press today. We have literally a mass view of certain American politicians. These are the ones that the press decides to damn. Where are the rational and objective views of say, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin? No I am not talking of the internet. The press had their "Hitler" . He had no recourse as have the people mentione. How are we to know the absolute truth about the man?
Throughout the attack by Nato, the hiss of female news persons was evident. "Ethnic cleansing" repeated over and over again. How are we to know the true scope of what this man did? Does anyone think we are going to be told.
We were told of 100,000 dead in mass graves. Over and over.
The Spanish Red Cross has stated that the so-called mass graves unearth about 3000 bodies. This is bad enough. Both Clintons stand guilty. They will never be brought to book.
