Attack Serbs in Northern Mitrovica
Edited by Emperors-clothes (6-22-00)
On June 21, 2000 at around 9:30 AM, local time, UNMIK (the
UN command in Kosovo) created a provocation in the northern part of
Kosovska Mitrovica. A caravan of secessionist Albanians was organized
and this caravan was then paraded around the streets with an official
escort of KFOR vehicles, as if the KLA people were visiting
Some local people responded to this provocation by throwing
a few stones as a gesture of defiance against NATO. In minutes, a
dozen UNMIK police cars arrived on the scene at Anke Spajica Street.
It is of course customary to judge a thing by its label,
but these UNMIK policemen didn't spring out of the ground in Kosovo.
They were in fact American "peace officers."
We are all familiar with how US policemen are screened and
trained for the job. We have seen the fruits of their training in
their treatment of black people in the US, not to mention protesters
in Seattle and Washington. Systematic violence is
their method of herding human beings.
A bunch of these US cops jumped off the UNMIK vehicles and
with a threatening posture approached the first group of Serbs they
saw, some young men standing in front of a shop. The cops demanded the
youths identify the "perpetrators." The young men didn't
know; they hadn't seen the incident. The US policemen pressed hard and
tried to drag some of the youths into their vehicles. The other Serbs
rushed to defend these victims and the peace officers responded with
what is called in the US "legal measures against those who resist
arrest;" that is, they beat them with billy clubs.
The attack by US police, wearing a different, UNMIK
uniform, developed into a street battle when the police called in
reinforcements. The end result was twenty Serbian civilians injured,
two with gunshot wounds, the rest severely beaten, five with serious
head injuries, many blinded with pepper spray and other US-made
"harmless" control chemicals, some with burned faces.
Here are the names of the two Serbian victims, shot by
brave US policemen, Clinton's heroes:
BRANISLAV VLASKOVIC, 30, seriously wounded in the belly.
BOZIDAR NEDELJKOVIC, bullet wound in the arm.
The official UNMIK communiqué on the incident stated that
"two Serbs, three Albanians and two UNMIK police officers were
injured in the incident; eventually a few warning shots were fired in
else could the world expect from US-trained UNMIK?
This incident, in which US
policemen, employed by the UN mission in Kosovo, used KLA members
in an effort to terrorize the local Serbian population is typical
of how NATO and the UN have functioned in Kosovo. See the
interview with the Jewish leader in Pristina, Cedomir Prlincevic, "Driven
from Kosovo" at http://emperors-clothes.com/interviews/ceda.htm
In both Mitrovica and
during the Seattle WTO demonstrations, police tactics were marked
by provocation and inappropriate force, i.e., brutality, but there
is one obvious difference: in Mitrovica, the bullets are not

Damage in Seattle,"
widely praised as the best account of what happened in Seattle. http://emperors-clothes.com/analysis/collater.htm
In the aftermath of the
police attack there, abused residents of Seattle got a taste of
'the Serbian treatment,' that is, the mass media lied about them.

Is the brutality in
Mitrovica an exception? It's much worse in the Kosovo town of
Orahovac where NATO and the KLA are in full control. See Save

probably recall the famous pictures of an emaciated man behind
barbed wire in a so-called Bosnian death camp. These pictures
were flashed around the world in 1992 and they had a big
impact. They convinced millions that the Bosnian Serbs were
monsters. Presidential candidate Clinton and President Bush
competed over who could den0once the Serbs most harshly.
Emperors clothes has made a movie that proves these
pictures were a hoax. Using original footage it shows how ITN,
the British news station, fabricated the pictures. That is, we
show you: a)What was really happening at Trnopolje, where the
pictures were shot. B) How the ITN crew staged the pictures to
create the false impression that some Bosnian refugees were
behind barbed wire; and c) exactly how the film was then
doctored to produce the 'Pictures that Fooled the World.'
This film jogs the mind that has been fogged with
lies; it jogs the mind to life, to doubt, to think…
