Last night, February 27, 2006, the BBC reported that the Hague Court is
accusing Serbia and Montenegro of Genocide!! Why would they do that?
The Hague Court is a US partner,
and this is just a vain attempt to
distract the world from the horrors the US is committing in Iraq.
The USA has powerful media, and they can do what they wish, but it
does not mean that the rest of the world is going to believe them.
People are not stupid. Sooner or later they find out.
There was no genocide in former Yugoslavia. Except in the US media.
There was a civil war in which people died on all sides. And the
civil war was largely instigated by USA. The Spanish Civil War was
not a genocide nor was the American Civil War. However, the USA did
things that resembled genocide, i.e., the killing of Native Americans
and African Americans in large numbers; the horrors of slavery; the
killing of 3 million Vietnamese and the poisoning of their land.
The USA killed many people in Serbia in the spring of 1999, when it
bombed the country day and night,
bombing even hospitals and killing
children and old people, destroying the land with
depleted uranium munitions. Yet, this is not genocide. It is
imperialism. You have power and you destroy. Genocide is something
else. One clear case is the example of the Nazis trying to exterminate
all the Jews in Europe during the Second World war. Genocide is when
one side kills with intent and they don't get killed. Nazis.
To compare Serbia and Montenegro to the Nazis is truly sick. A people
who more than any other
fought fascism alone.
This stupid, opportunistic
comparison is demeaning to the memory of Jews who died in the
horrible camps, where they were starved, tortured and gassed. We are
living in an age where nothing counts and everything can be changed
or assigned a monetary value. I resent the misuse of the word 'genocide'
in the name of the Serbs, the Jews, the Armenians and the Gypsies -
the true victims
of the past genocides.
