Terror in the New Kosovo
Below is an article from Tanjug (pronounced tanyug), the press service of the Yugoslav government. Given the admittedly partisan source some might be inclined to poo-poo the charges made here, so I added some quotes from pro-NATO media. These and my own analysis suggest that, if anything, Tanjug understates its case, sparing us some of the more unbelievable details.
Jared comments: In Why is the KLA shooting at KFOR? we noted that recent fighting between the Kosovo Liberation Army and French troops in northern Kosovo (Mitrovica) was really a proxy war between the US and France. Well, during that fighting, French troops seized a KLA ambulance stuffed with, we kid you not, "14 anti-tank rocket launchers, more than 180 high-explosive grenades, and more than 3,000 cartridges for guns, (Bergen County Record, 2-16-00) and "including a US-made 'street sweeper' grenade launcher..." (AFP, 2-15-00)
Got that? Pretty amazing?
Here's more amazing. Gen. Shelton, boss of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, immediately held a press conference commenting on the ambulance. Why would a big-shot like him comment on an incident like that? But OK, did he at least denounce the KLA for violating the UN agreement under which NATO tries to justify its occupation of Kosovo? Did he chastise the KLA for planning to slaughter even more local people and now French troops as well? No sir, he talked about the difficulties of preventing arms smuggling from Serbia.
The ambulance was seized as it was being driven north towards not away from inner Serbia. And these were US-made weapons stashed inside, and this was a KLA ambulance.
So what was the point of Shelton's statement? I think the intention was clear. By first taking the unheard of step of commenting on a minor incident, and then pointing the finger at Yugoslavia instead of the KLA, Shelton was affirming, at the highest level, that the US government supported the KLA arms buildup. What reason do we have to doubt that the US also covertly supplies the KLA with weapons? The only question is: why would the US equip only 3500 terrorists? has the CIA gotten cheap?
Jared comments: The Kosovo Protection Corps (KPC) is openly run by the same thugs who led the KLA. It's a name change. The KPC remains a racist, crazy, terrorist-gangster organization. Just read the following mind boggling account from the Albanian Daily News of 4-19-00. If I were editing the Albanian Daily News, I would have called the story:
"The right to bear rocket launchers..."
Forgive me but I peppered the Daily News text with comments, highlighted and in brackets. Here's the Daily News:

Now back to Tanjug:
Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Kosovapress,
and the Internatioanl Crisis Group, who are to different
degrees either run by NATO or pro-NATO, have each admitted the
KLA/KPC killed hundreds of people in Kosovo. There is no
question that, in NATO's interest, these groups have
understated the numbers murdered.
Over 300,000 people have been driven from Kosovo. This includes most Serbs, Slavic Muslims, thousands of non-KLA Albanians, thousands of Roma ("Gypsies"). They did not leave out of fear of NATO bombs; they left *after* NATO took over Kosovo because of the following:
In other words, the cause of the huge exodus is gangsterism and racist terror. As you may recall, NATO said it was taking over Kosovo in order to produce racial harmony. So what is NATO's reaction to the destruction of multiethnic life in Kosovo, to the transformation of Kosovo into a nightmare of fascist gangsterism? Here is the answer from the outgoing NATO Commander in Kosovo, Gen. Wesley Clark:
"On Monday, he visited Kosovo and said there was an 'increasing sense of security, the indicators of recovery from strong-arm ethnic cleansing and even some first budding signs of willingness to tolerate ethnic differences and cooperate among ethnic groups.'"
Jared comments: Maybe the Thaci cover-up is the best evidence that the murderous KLA racists are US administration proteges. But as we have seen, it is not the only evidence.
Let me close with a quote from an op ed article in the NY Times by William Clinton. It is inconceivable that when Clinton wrote this op ed piece last May he was unaware of the nature of the KLA, which US covert agencies had helped to create and for whom the US had been the key sponsor at least since the Verification Teams went to Kosovo in the Fall of 1998. He understood the nature of the monster the US had chosen as its proxy force; he knew the KLA's dreams:
"He, like many KLA officers, says openly that he dreams of a Kosovo without Serbs." (Description of KLA death squad commander "The Teacher", Agence France Presse, August 19, 1999, quoted in The roots of Kosovo fascism by George Thompson.)
Knowing what the KLA was, knowing what NATO and therefore KLA domination of Kosovo would mean, Clinton wrote, concerning the motivation of NATO and the KLA:
"Freedom, respect for minority rights, and prosperity are powerful forces for progress. They give people goals to work for; they elevate hope over fear and tomorrow over yesterday." (Clinton, op-ed editorial, NY Times, May 23, 1999)
