Trepca - the name will live alongside those of Belsen, Auschwitz and Treblinka”
The above is from an old article. It was completely a fake. Do you think anybody remembers it now? Did anybody retract it in headlines equal to the original accusation?
The Serbs are the designated guilty party. You have pointed out some of the press failings. There are literally hundreds like this and it continues today with the kangaroo court in the Hague and reporters looking up the ‘history’ of the whole Yugoslav mess in their own archives — written by sensationalists who already had their minds made up — Serbs in black hats, Muslims in white. The Serbs were not the Nazis in all this but we love to use the term. It’s never ending. Today the only ethnically mixed country from ALL the former Yugoslav republics as of today is Serbia. Genocide? Serbs did not want an ethnically pure country — they simply did not dare risk being a MINORITY in a Muslim or a Croatian country (Nazi allies in WW2 — look it up)where they had been murdered in the hundreds of thousands along with Jews and Gypsies. Am I carrying on too long? I hope this stirs somebody to think more deeply on the topic.
Your statement is that
"The above is from an old article. It was completely a fake. Do you think anybody remembers it now? Did anybody retract it in headlines equal to the original accusation? "
What I think is important is that the Orwellian nightmare of absolute press control, has partly come true. Now we have this absolutely democratic and potent weapon at our disposal. This is the internet. Yet it may not reach enough of the general public and if it does, they may still march in lock step with the media. We will keep on trying.
I was made aware on the internet of the protests of former American servicemen against NATO. Not that the press were willing to give this a large coverage. Men had been shot down and hunted like animals in Jugoslavia, in WW2. A possibility of not being treated according to the Geneva Convention. Serbs risked their lives to shield the Americans.
I do not know how to provide a link, but there is a long statement by former Colonel Richard L Felman. It was on www.dojgov.net/kosovo I used Google and put in Colonel Richard L Felman and got the whole thing. His plea for recognition of the plight of the Serbs.
No, you are not carrying on too long. It is an uphill battle for the truth. The blatent cowardice of the media exists today. Even to the point of decrying the efforts made by America to keep every decent man, woman and child free from fear, and stepping on a few Islamists to do it.
It is the battle for Western Civilization that the Serbs have taken part in. This must not go unrecognized.
