“The real problem is not that we are different, nor that we disagree and have conflict. It's that most of us automatically view conflict as something negative rather than as a tool God can use to help us better understand ourselves and one another.

--Robert Ricciardelli”

Oh, How We Have Been Had!

I read a series of posts on the Yugoslavian Civil War of the 90's, and just wanted to get sick. I have to admit, that I bought the media coverage through all of this time frame. I believed it was the Bosnians (i.e. Muslims) who were being mis-treated through the whole thing and needed help and assistance. So, to the Serbian (i.e. non-Muslims) people, I offer my apologies. I should have done my homework, and held the political leadership of my country accountable to the truth.

Uncle Mac has an in depth history of the troubles in the Balkans during the mid-1990's (i.e. the Clinton Administration). So far, it is an eight-part series. The evidence of the suppression and outright fabrication of evidence against the Serbs is overwhelming. The level of involvement by the US is sickening. Worse, our support of Muslim groups through the end of the 90's just kept expanding. It's all in the series. But, here is a short list of factoids:

1. The Serbs were persecuted during WWII by the Muslims, who supported the Germans.
2. The Croatian (i.e. Muslim) initiated the invasion of Serbia (1995), and got UN/US help to do it based on fabricated evidence. Our ambassadors actually knew about and approved the plans!
3. At least two of the public massacres during the Yugoslavian civil war, attributed to Serbians, have been determined to have been staged against Serbs (i.e. the only victims of the “attacks”) by Muslims.
4. The Clinton administration approved the shipments of arms and monies from Iran to Muslim for the purpose of solidifying Muslim rule in those areas taken in the conflict.
5. The UN and the US refused to intervene in areas (including the “safe havens”) where Muslims were known to be carrying out military operations and expanding their rule and authority.
6. The CIA and other intelligence groups continued to funnel arms to the Muslims (even the known, declared Muslim terrorist group KLA) at least up to the year 2000.

To those on the political left of America who may read Uncle Mac’s series, I have a question and a challenge: How many lives have been lost due to the lies of the Clinton era, concerning the Balkans? If we hold Bush and the Republicans accountable for Iran, and we should, do we hold Clinton and the Democrats accountable for the Balkans?
