I have revised the middle part of the article, 'For Whom the Bell Tolls.'

The changes, incorporated in the original text (at http://emperors-clothes.com/articles/jared/tolls.htm ) include some new text and also an alteration in the original text. The alteration is important.

I originally wrote, "the purpose of the War Crimes Tribunal on Yugoslavia is not to attack all Serbs, it is to crush those Serbs who resist, especially leaders." This is a misstatement of my view, which is that the War Crimes Tribunal is indeed intended to crush all Serbs because the U.S. and Germany recognize the Serbian people as a force resisting foreign (U.S. and German) domination of the Balkans. The Tribunal was created as a stick to beat those leaders who express the desires of the people - to jail such leaders or to intimidate them into silence or active complicity with U.S. and German aims.

Original Text

Thus the purpose of the War Crimes Tribunal on Yugoslavia is not to attack all Serbs, it is to crush those Serbs who resist, especially leaders. Little quislings like Mr. Svilanovic are safe from harm as long as they behave, and serve their Masters.

This is a small world, my friends; abuse of power cannot long afflict the black skin of the Hutu or the white skin of the Serb before it also attacks my precious Brooklyn, N.Y. skin, or even your skin, dear reader. Even your skin is not safe from harm. Before too long the legal theories embodied in the Yugoslav and Rwandan Tribunals will be advocated, as matters of principle, in the highest courts in the US, Canada and Western Europe.

Revised Text

Thus the purpose of the War Crimes Tribunal on Yugoslavia is not to attack all Serbian leaders. Rather, it is to crush those leaders who resist. Little quislings like Mr. Svilanovic are safe from harm as long as they behave, and serve their Masters.

The Exquisite Difficulty of Serving

But this may be easier said than done. The goals of U.S. and German Imperial Beings are defined not by principle but by position: they want the greatest possible control of the Balkans, Africa, everything. Give them an arm, they will demand your leg. Their watchword is: MORE.

If the Tribunal does succeed in setting up shop in Belgrade, that is, if Yugoslav (and worldwide!) popular hatred for the Tribunal does not succeed in stopping it, NATO will attempt, with the help of their Belgrade quislings, to hunt down those who have resisted and/or who currently resist NATO rule. The Tribunal may initially avoid the big names (Miloshevich, Mladich, Karajich) in order to prevent a confrontation with the Yugoslav army, most of whose officers and soldiers are patriots who loathe NATO. They may instead nibble away at the small fry of resistance, the unsung heroes, thus attempting to establish the Tribunal's de facto legitimacy and demoralize its opponents. The Tribunal may use the infinitely flexible 'secret list' of war crimes suspects as a herding tool, like an electric cattle prod. For example, people in the very large Serbian Socialist Party who speak out against President Koshtunitsa may find themselves on the Tribunal's 'secret list' whereas others, who hold their tongue, may, temporarily, not. The key word here is 'temporarily', for if the NATO Tribunal succeeds in eliminating the first rank of patriots, they will go for level two, level two being comprised of those who wavered between kneeling and fighting back. And so on.

And on.

You see, there is no end to this. As the U.S. and Germany consolidate their control of a territory, their demands increase by due proportion: yesterday's compliance does not satisfy today. No degree of compliance, no service rendered, no betrayal of principle or of friends or of family will permanently suffice. Eventually, even a Koshtunitsa, perhaps even a Svilanovich may find himself in a jail cell, asking, "Why?" And the Guard will say: "Shut up."

This scenario, of course, leaves out half the game. The people of Yugoslavia are the other player. They have learned a lot about the U.S. and Germany over the past ten years. Vast numbers are now getting an education in what it means to have a government led by Mr. Koshtunitsa, are learning that Voyislav Koshtunitsa is the nationalist coating required to swallow the bitter pill of betrayal, called Zoran Jinjich (Djindjic).

So we are talking about one possible future, about what NATO wants, about what the picture would look like were the NATO Tribunal to succeed.

No place to hide

It would be an ugly picture, right? Good thing it's all taking place in far off Yugoslavia (and Rwanda). Right?

Alas, this is a small world, my friends; abuse of power cannot long afflict the black skin of the Hutu or the white skin of the Serb before it also attacks my precious Brooklyn, N.Y. skin, or even your skin, dear reader. Even your skin is not safe from harm. Before too long the legal theories embodied in the Yugoslav and Rwandan Tribunals will be advocated, as matters of principle, in the highest courts in the US, Canada and Western Europe. As matters of principle.
