"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
--- Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger, 1916, Ch.9

NATO Willfully Triggered Environmental Catastrophe In Yugoslavia
by Michel Chossudovsky (6-18-00)
Prof. Chossudovsky provides conclusive documentary and photographic evidence that the environmental nightmare at the petrochemical plant which NATO bombed in Pancevo, Serbia, was intentional. NATO blew up with meticulous accuracy only those containers full of toxic chemicals.

Louise Arbour: Unindicted War Criminal
by Christopher Black and Edward S. Herman (6-14-00)

  • THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP, 6-13-00) -- The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal said Tuesday it found no reason to investigate NATO for criminal activity during its 78-day bombing campaign in Kosovo last year that killed nearly 500 civilians.

    De Ponte told the United Nations last week that she would not initiate any prosecution for the NATO campaign. The report released Tuesday gave a case-by-case justification for declining to pursue the war crimes allegations...

    The prosecutor took the unusual step of publishing its findings to avoid any impression it was whitewashing the allegations.

    "If we didn't publish it, we could be accused of being a political tool of NATO," said Deputy Prosecutor Graham Blewitt. The tribunal relies on NATO officers to arrest fugitives in Yugoslavia under indictment for war crimes.

Why on earth would anyone think the Tribunal is a tool of NATO? See Louise Arbour: Unindicted War Criminal

Human Rights Watch 'expert' Arkin parrots Wesley Clark: OK to bomb Serb TV
by Lester Schonbrun (6-9-00)

NATO's Clark says Serb media had to be stopped
(posted 6-9-00)
Recently Amnesty International issued a report which, in highly understated fashion in our opinion, accused NATO of some war crimes in its 78 day bombing campaign against Yugoslavia. The report does not call the bombing itself a war crime, and its treatment of specific incidents is so limited that it is, to some extent, a whitewash. And yet even this report is unacceptable to NATO. Here Wesley Clark takes Amnesty to task for questioning the murderous bombing of Serbian TV, RTS.

Nothing is Forever (6-1-00)
An Interview with US Ambassador to Yugoslavia, Warren Zimmerman, in the Croatian daily 'Danas' ('Today'), Jan. 21, 1992
Was the US behind the dissolution of Yugoslavia? Some people say the US opposed breakup. Unfortunatly for this argument, Ambassador Zimmerman himself said:

  • "We are aiming for a dissolution of Yugoslavia into independent states, peacefully." (Warren Zimmerman, US Ambassador to Yugoslavia, Jan., 1992)

For Zimmerman, 'peacefully' meant the Yugoslav government wasn't allowed to fight back because Nothing is Forever.
