MEDAK POCKET SLAUGHTER
The unpunished genocide
On Thursday, September 9, 1993, Croatian
Army made sudden unprovoked attack on the Serbian villages in "Medak
pocket" region. The whole region, the farthest West part of Krajina
Military Frontier, was Serb majority populated for at least four centuries.
During WWII, at the time of existence of Hitler supported puppet Independent
State of Croatia, the Medak and surrounding villages as well as nearby
town of Gospic was especially hard hit by Croat fascist - Ustashi bestialities.
In the small mountain village of Medak itself 861 Serbs, men, women and
children were slaughtered.
Weary of the horrors of the past that did
not leave one single family without casualties, Krajina Serbs fought bitterly
not to be at mercy of yet another Independent State of Croatia. At the
moment when resurrected Ustashi elements took over the government in Croatia
and declared that they will follow their WWII chauvinist model and declare
secession from Yugoslavia, Krajina people declared loyalty to the federation.
With some help from the Yugoslav Federal Army the region remained under
In comes "International Community"
which after collapse of the Soviet Union got to be under full control from
Washington. They recognized Croatian independence in borders designed by
Croatian Communist dictator Tito. This meant that Serbian right to exist
let alone to exercise their right to control their destiny, their UN declared
right for self-determination was denied.
But the Serbs were not to let the weapons
down. Washington sends its diplomat Cyrus Vance to bring "peace"
to the region. The plan is to fool the Serbs that America seeks non-violent,
negotiated solution to the war. America needs time to equip and train its
Nazi Croat proxies.
Medak and surrounding Serb villages found
themselves in a pocket. The surrounding areas as well as nearby town of
Gospic were already cleansed of the Serbs (and the "International
Community" did not allow rare fools to try to come to their homes
and property). "Medak pocket" got to be a peninsula, surrounded
on three sides by Ustashi Croat territory.
The Croat attack on Medak was a test of
just what the American master will tolerate. It proved that they will tolerate
everything. The model of Ustashi bestiality followed by American silence
will then be repeated in Western Slavonia (UNPROFOR sector "West")
in May 1995, Western Krajina (UNPROFOR sectors "North" and "South"
in August 1995) when entire, huge regions were cleansed of the indigenous
The last to go was Eastern Slavonia (UNPROFOR
sector "East") which was "demilitarized" (read: the
Serbs were disarmed) by America and then given to the control of the Croat
fascists in January 1998.
In many different aspects the case of Medak
pocket slaughter is educational at least for the reason that it happened
very early in the conflict before Western media succeeded to satanize one
whole people through its "mass rape", "besieged Sarajevo",
"concentration camps", "Srebrenica mass graves" and
other Big Lie campaigns.
Medak pocket massacres prove full complicity
of the Inter-Nazi-onal Community in the genocide perpetrated on the Serbian
people. Medak pocket, since February 1992, was to be protected by UNPROFOR
(United Nation Protection Force).
In early morning hours Croat Army shelled
and then made all out attack, at the Serb villages. They were supported
UNPROFOR stayed uninvolved. This is what
they have found when they entered the disaster zone:

sign of human or animal life in the several villages we passed today. The

Croatian soldiers had been ordered
by highest command to tear down those villages. This could

Zeljko Karan, specialist of forensic medicine examines mutilated bodies
and writes a report. "Blood suffusions and contusions were caused
by strokes of a dull mechanical tool. [The victims] were then thrust into
a fire while still alive. Many had stab wounds... It is not necessary to
comment how the imprisoned were treated... The UNPROFOR representatives
were present at the identification process and forensic treatment, especially
at the most illustrative cases."

WWII unfinished job of genocide over the Serbs is finally done.
media finds a way to blame the Serbs while keeping silent about the
slaughter. Not ONE Croat was called responsible for the massacre. There
was NO pressure on Croatia not to repeat the experiment.
