The Kidnapping of Milosevic and the Theft of the Serbs' Only Treasure
[ www.tenc.net ]
The following article, written as a letter, was published on 5 July 2001. This was a week after the two men who had led the NATO-financed Yugoslav coup d'état kidnapped the legally elected President of Yugoslavia, Slobodan Milosevic, and gave him to NATO's Hague Tribunal. 
The author, Petar Makara, was born in the Serbian town of Pancevo. Now living in the USA, Mr. Makara has devoted most of the past 12 years to exposing misinformation about what was done in and to Yugoslavia. Prior to the kidnapping he was a strong supporter of Vojislav Kostunica.

the Serbs' Only Treasure
Dear Emperor's Clothes,
More than seven years ago, on a late April day in 1994, with a small group of close friends, I entered the office of Vojislav Kostunica in Belgrade. We, Serbian-American activists deeply concerned with events in Yugoslavia, were eager to meet the man whose articles we read and loved.
While Slobodan Milosevic, who promised many times to protect the truly vital interests of the Serbian people was persistently trying to find a political solution to the Western-induced crisis and thus avoid a clash with mighty NATO, Mr. Kostunica was criticizing what he called indecision. He was always eloquent in explaining the rights of Serbs as the people who founded Yugoslavia and who were still loyal to this multiethnic state. He explained that the Serbs have the right and duty to help their own people who were, in 1945, left outside the Republic of Serbia by President Tito's artificial, undemocratic borders. The Serbs have the right, Mr. Kostunica claimed, to defend the lands where they, as the majority population, have lived for centuries.
In his statements Mr. Kostunica seemed always to be right. He seemed to be not only a person who understood law, but a man who understood the soul of his people.
Our surprise as we entered Mr. Kostunica's office was to find a man who appeared to be in quite a contrast to his fiery statements, not only good mannered and soft-spoken but with his eyes always half closed, giving him the look of someone completely drained of life energy or, at least, who had not slept for days.
What kind of a leader, I remember thinking, would this guy be? But I told myself, who cares about appearances? The hope was Kostunica would be firm and principled, an intellectual who knew the enemy and the way out of its grip.
Such was the hope. After the ten long years that the Serbs gave to Mankind by single-handedly fighting NATO and its combined onslaught on the economy, property and lives of the Serbian people, is it a surprise that many Serbs hoped that Kostunica - Mr. Right - would not sell out Serbian interests?
The hope dies last.
The colonial club (now known by its nickname as NATO) and its thousands of psychologists, employed in covert agencies (this is not my personal nightmare - it is fact!), empowered with knowledge accumulated over the centuries that their countries pillaged, cleansed and annihilated uncounted peoples across the globe - these psychologists must have fully grasped this truth: false hope will keep the victim immobilized when action is the only real hope left.
That is why virtually all Western press articles talking about the recent kidnap of the ex-president of a sovereign country to the kangaroo court of the colonialists never forgot to give their local quisling Vojislav Kostunica the well known tool of deceit, a 'plausible denial.' That is why they all say about the kidnapping of Milosevic, "this was done without Kostunica's knowledge" or "Kostunica disapproved of this action," or words to the effect.
After recent events, the last hope of us who wanted to believe that Mr. Kostunica is a decent man should cease. Kostunica's name must be listed alongside Zoran Djindjic's as history's worst traitors of the Serbian people. That is as clear as day. 
We the Serbs are a small people who as a Serbian poet has noted have the bad luck that our forefathers "built a home in the middle of the road." Fourteen centuries ago, they settled in the middle of Balkans, in the middle of the main road that leads from Central Europe to Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. It is the southern flank in a conqueror's attack on Russia.
Since those ancient times all those who aspired to rule the Earth tried their ruthless methods of conquest, of divide-and-rule, on the Balkan peoples first. As stepping-stones to what they dreamed to be their Eternal Empires they wanted the Balkans as the first jewel in the crown. Those empires include the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Hitler's Third Reich and now U.S./NATO.
We the Serbs do not have vast lands or far-away islands. We are rather poor. We never collected riches by oppressing or enslaving near or far-away peoples as the NATO nations did. Our only treasure is our pride that our forefathers, through many centuries, and the last two in particular, fought countless battles against all those foreign oppressors. Our forefathers never fought to grab other people's lands. Our forefathers never fought to impose our culture, our way of life on anyone. They fought for freedom, for the simple right to exist. They fought so we are in charge of our own destinies. Throughout the countless centuries of fighting gruesome oppressors, there is no record that would shame the Serbs. Pride is our only treasure and now NATO, with quislings like Kostunica, would take away that, the only treasure we possess.
To understand the Serbs is to understand their sense of pride; it is to understand why the Serbs celebrate June 28, St. Vitus Day, the day of the Kosovo Battle of 1389. Those who hate the Serbs claim we are sick people who celebrate a day of defeat. (The actual battle, according to countless history books, was a draw; both the Serbian King and Turkish Sultan perished.)
The Serbs do not celebrate this as victory or defeat. They celebrate the bravery, the pride of their forefathers who came to meet on the battlefield the intruder to their homeland. It did not matter that the advancing forces were immense. To protect their way of life, to protect their families, to protect freedom, all Serbian nobility came to fight. Most of them died on that day, June 28, 1389. Since that day the Serbs firmly knew that *freedom has no price*. Many Serbs, through generations and time, easily sacrificed their lives for freedom.
The Hague 'Tribunal' is not the first time that a conqueror attacks the Serbs as physical beings, but also attacks their pride. To keep a people subjugated, the oppressors knew you have to destroy their pride. That is why, exactly on June 28, 1914, Prince Ferdinand, the Austrian heir to the throne, decided to have military maneuvers in Bosnia, then a majority Serbian province which the Austro-Hungarian Empire had illegally annexed six years before. The Serbian answer was to assassinate Ferdinand. That is how World War I started, remember? Some 50% of the Serbian male population perished in that war! Every second man.
The story of that Serbian sacrifice and Golgotha should be in every elementary history book. That was the price the Serbs were ready to pay.
In 1941 Hitler could not wait for June 28 to issue his ultimatums. He was in a hurry to attack Russia and had to conquer Serbia first. The Serbian answer to the weakness in the Yugoslav government, weakened by a strong Croatian fascist secessionist movement was: "Better grave than slave." Well over one million Serbs perished during W.W.II fighting against the Nazi New World Order.
That the oppressor would attack the Serbian sense of pride is not surprising, but that a handful of Serbs would sink so low in their treason and hand over their recent elected leader to the attacking enemy - and exactly on June 28 - is shocking! The message is clear because the timing is everything. The event was clearly timed to destroy the Serbian sense of pride.
That Kostunica would sink so low in his treason as to betray the Serbs and the whole of Mankind fills me with a sickened feeling as I remember the April day when I met him. I am disgusted that I shook his hand.
As the old saying goes, the devil is at his worst when pretending to be an angel. At least and at last Kostunica has shown his true face. No one should be fooled any more.
One could have more respect even for a Djindjic who was at least open in his treason.

 The official story was that Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic organized the kidnapping of Zoran Djindjic without Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica's knowledge. This was agreed to by everyone from the New York Times to Ramsey Clark, already reason to smell a rat. Our article shows that Kostunica was involved.
