Macedonian Aptitude Test
Excerpt from NATO Commandants' MAT Quiz
by Lester Schonbrun [Posted 28 June 2001]
a. Expressing concern, while shuttling mercenaries back and forth, fully armed;
b. Presenting the nation with an ultimatum that is humiliating and unacceptable to the country in question;
c. Bombing, invading, and subverting the country in question;
d. All of the above, a la Yugoslavia.
Note from Emperor's Clothes: The correct answer is 'D.' We know cause we read the teachers' training material, below...
1) "MESSAGE FROM MACEDONIA." A reader from Macedonia's capital decries Western media lies, provides some ugly/untold facts about "rebel" leaders.
2) "SORRY, VIRGINIA, BUT THEY ARE NATO
TROOPS, NOT 'REBELS'"
by Jared Israel with research by Rick Rozoff, George Thompson and Max Sinclair. Documents the charge that the "NLA rebels" are really NATO proxy forces. Dissects the respective roles of the U.S. (bad cop) and the European Union (good cop) in attempting to working together to destroy the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Documented with rather startling quotes from the mainstream media. Charges that the real U.S. goal in Macedonia and Yugoslavia is to prepare way for increasing "low intensity warfare" against the former Soviet Union, using the various techniques being tested now in the Balkans, and with the Balkans as the southern flank of attack.
3) 'WHAT NATO OCCUPATION WOULD MEAN FOR
by Jared Israel [18 June 2001]
It is being touted as the solution, but how would NATO occupation affect ordinary Macedonian citizens? Three women, keen observers, in despair for their relatives, talk about the NATO takeover of Orahovac, their home town in Kosovo.
URGENT APPEAL! 28 JUNE
TO THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED TO OUR FUNDRAISING DRIVE - THANK YOU!
BUT EMPEROR'S CLOTHES STILL URGENTLY NEEDS HELP!
The George Soros foundation does not fund Emperor's Clothes. Our only source of money is people like you. All contributions help, big and small.
Our work has expanded but our income has not. We are now several months behind on long distance and international phone bills.
All but local service has been turned off.
We have other big bills too, including for Lexis, our key research tool.
We use long distance for interviews (if we need a translator, this involves a three-way call) to consult with writers, to check the accuracy of information and sometimes to discuss articles being translated. We also use international calls to help write and edit articles for media besides Emperor's Clothes.
Using international long distance, we were able to stay in constant touch with the unarmed witnesses guarding Mr. Miloshevich's house when it was attacked March 28th and 29th. That is why you could read accurate news on Emperor's Clothes - the only honest reports available anywhere.
After the attack, by using international phone calls we were able to talk directly with people involved in the negotiations between Mr. Miloshevich and the current Serbian authorities. So we knew first hand that the 'NY Times' report that Mr. Miloshevich was suicidal during the talks was a lie.
Because we need to use the phone so much, our bills are well over a thousand dollars a month. Now our long distance and international service has been turned off because we owe almost $5000. We are in danger of losing phone service altogether. In addition, we owe over $1500 to Lexis, a key research tool, which allows us to check the accuracy of newspaper excerpts and quotes over the past 20 years.
If everyone who cares about Emperor's Clothes chips in, we'll be out of trouble in no time.
Any help you can send will be greatly appreciated! $20, $50, $100 or $1000 - it will all help.
