A Truly Heroic
by -- jared israel
As an American, I have not been affected in the same way Serbian and Serbian-American
people have been by the horrible bombing. At the same time, as a thinking person, I find
the "peace agreement," as published by the AP, most disturbing.
For 72 days the people of Serbia - from all ethnic groups -- have kept up their spirit in
the face of an onslaught by what amounts to the old Colonial club of Western powers. These powers gave us the Slave trade, colonialism in all its
horror, the gruesome wars of our century and now they have embarked on a World-Wide drive
for power under the cover of humanitarian concerns.
The US is trying to use NATO to destabilize and
economically dominate a vast region, perhaps the entire Eastern world. The Serbs are first on the list. As has
happened twice before during this century, they are the outpost, defending civilization
against barbarians bent on world conquest. By resisting the power of NATO they have
followed the old Serbian saying: "Freedom is priceless."
Despite a torrent of lies in the Western media, the Serbian people have inspired millions
-- hundreds of millions -- from China to Canada. They have
reawakened the spark of decency, a new political awareness on right and left. This new
grouping of people refuse to accept international injustice and lawlessness. The Serbian
people's symbol, the target bulls-eye, has become the symbol for all of us. People from
all over the world now say, proudly, "I am a Serb," just as many years
ago John Paul Sartre said "I am a Jew." Except this time, thank God, the
"Jews" are not going quietly to those ovens. Whatever
happens, nothing can lessen the contribution the Serbs have made to the cause of human
freedom which today means resisting NATO.
NATO IS THE NAME, NATION DESTROYING IS THE GAME
The U.S. government started the bombing because Serbia
would not surrender its national sovereignty, as called for in Appendix B of the
Rambouillet "agreement." But what does the text of the NEW peace
agreement call for?
The Agreement calls for the complete withdrawal of Yugoslav troops from the Serbian
province of Kosovo. It adds the contemptuous proviso that several hundred troops might be
allowed back into Kosovo to mark land mines and guard
monasteries. Indeed. These troops, perhaps the best in the world, are dug into
well-engineered defenses. From reports, their morale is superb. They have routed the KLA which has been reduced to scattered snipers. NATO would need a huge ground force -- certainly several hundred
thousand troops -- perhaps as many as a million -- to have any hope of taking Kosovo from
these men and women. Such an attack would put immense internal strains on NATO and greatly
increase opposition to NATO around the world.
U.S. Government's Goal is NOT Peace
True the bombing is horrible. But what are the U.S.
government's actual "peace goals" in Serbia? Every indication is the U.S.
government would, given the chance, carry out the PRACTICAL program of the KLA. (The KLA
has after all never been an independent force, but rather has been the terrorist arm of
NATO in Kosovo.) What is the practical program of the KLA? The KLA has carried out its program for a year and a half: it is
the murder of anti-racist Albanians and all Serbs and Roma people ("Gypsies"). The U.S. government knows this is KLA policy. When Clinton
praises the KLA he is making it perfectly clear what will happen in Kosovo if NATO gets
control. With the Yugoslav army gone, NATO troops would suppress any significant
No Serbian police, no Yugoslav troops with armor, just NATO "under unified
command," that is, with ALL troops, including Russian and Greek troops, controlled by
the U.S. and Britain. This "unified command"
could maintain order while the KLA does its work, slaughtering decent people, town by
Real Serbian-Albanian Unity
Sometimes good things come from suffering. The devastating
bombing of Kosovo has brought many Serbs and Albanians together in a fighting unity
against NATO's attacks. This is expressed in mutual aid and solidarity of all kinds
including the repair of damaged facilities, the arming of Albanians to fight KLA snipers,
and so on. This new solidarity is crucial because it lays the basis for a new, antiracist
political unity against the racist Albanians, who call themselves
"nationalists," from the KLA to Rugova. And this unity has been paid for by the
suffering and struggle of many people. Quite literally, with blood, sweat and tears.
What NATO needs in Kosovo
The U.S. has been instigating disunity in Kosovo since
1987; disunity is the necessary prerequisite for NATO domination of Kosovo. The simplest way to break the current unified resistance is to
kill the people involved, especially the Albanian loyalists. This requires
a) the removal of Yugoslav Army troops from Kosovo and
b) the "regrettable" reentry of KLA
terrorists from Albania. Once the Yugoslav troops are gone, these butchers will stream across the border, led by US and
European special forces.
The U.S.-controlled verifiers who were stationed in Kosovo starting in
October, 1998, expressed "concern" that the KLA used the Yugoslav troop
withdrawal to rebuild its army. In the same way,
after a new Yugoslav withdrawal, NATO would be "shocked" at KLA murders. Or perhaps the news of these murders would be suppressed so that
later the victims of KLA attacks could be unearthed, and the murders blamed on Yugoslav
troops who, we would be told, killed Albanians as they retreated. These
Serbs and Albanian brothers would get to be killed twice: first by bullets and then by
lies. The result of this slaughter would be
even worse then the loss of human life; for this heroic multi-ethnic group is the basis
for reconstructing Kosovo, for the first time, on an anti-racist basis.
Give NATO an arm and it will go for your leg
Once in possession of Kosovo, would NATO respect the spirit of peace and cease aggression
against the rest of Serbia? If you answered
"yes" I'm afraid you don't know NATO. Or anyway, you don't know Clinton and
company. Kosovo is the first stop in a long train ride, with many bumps.
Everything has been prepared to make Vojvodina, the
breadbasket of Serbia, which borders Hungary, the next Kosovo. It
has been physically isolated through the bombing of bridges over the Danube. In Hungary proper, flunky leaders have voiced the appropriate
concerns about ethnic abuses and they have been echoed by NATO statements to the effect
that Milosevich is "expected" to target ethnic Hungarians in Vojvodina next. How convenient of these Serbs to abuse
precisely the ethnic group that NATO needs abused, and to do it at just the required
The minute Kosovo is secure, or perhaps before it is
fully secure, atrocities against Hungarians would be "discovered." There would be satellite photos and
eye-witness accounts of horrors in Vojvodina. Some neo-fascist group
of Hungarian secessionists would pop up like a balloon charged with NATO hot air and voila
-- a whole new Kosovo. It is all predictable because, like every criminal organization,
NATO has a modus operandi. I don't say that because I am paranoid and I don't know that
because I am clairvoyant; I simply read. For
instance, in the Feb. 15, 1999 Washington Post, former State Department planner Robert A.
Manning described U.S. policy as: "...turning the former Yugoslavia into a series of
protectorates, one province at a time."
One province at a time, until Serbia is a group of
Banana Republics. Each time a new province is taken by NATO (to prevent some humanitarian
catastrophe which NATO has created) the neo-fascist group of choice will slaughter
"pro-Serbian nationalists" and "non-Serbian collaborationists" (such
as the Albanians who oppose NATO and the KLA, but this applies just as easily to ethnic
Hungarians, Turks, Jews or Roma.) NATO spokesmen will terribly regret this violence, tsk tsk tsk. Or they will lie about it (blame the
victims). Or the media will bemoan a history of
interethnic strife going back hundreds of years. Or Jamie Shea will just say what he said
recently when a bridge was bombed, killing and wounding many. "Tough luck," said
They Would Give us Afghanistan and Call It Peace
A true peace is of course better than war. And all things being equal, it's worse to be
bombed than not. But this "peace"
agreement, as presented by the Associated Press, lays the basis for continuing the war
without NATO having to take the losses which war usually requires, i.e., without having to
launch a land invasion. Land invasion is preferable to uncontested
occupation, which would have a demoralizing affect on the population, and make the job of
resistance -- which would nevertheless occur -- more difficult. Moreover, if the citizens of Serbia were to allow the uncontested
occupation of Kosovo, this would encourage the U.S. government to pursue adventures of a
similar kind further East. The US is openly and covertly encouraging
conflict between Moslems and Orthodox Christians in the Caspian Sea area, rich in oil. As
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the high-placed U.S. government "thinker" has said, Russia
is far too big. The U.S. government has used the IMF to enforce policies which have cut
the Russian economy in half and similarly devastated other parts of the former Soviet
Union preparatory to breaking up this vast area into mini-states, too small to defeat
economic domination and exploitation. Much like Central America.
In essence, the United States elite is trying to
carve up the world, the way colonial powers used to do in the late 19th century. But this isn't the late 19th century. This is the nuclear age and there are tens
of thousands of nuclear warheads all over the former USSR - and elsewhere. So this plan for world conquest makes nuclear war quite
possible, perhaps probable. As you read this, Russian nuclear warheads have been re-aimed
so they once again target the U.S. The ancient Greeks said,
"Whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad." Are our leaders mad? Perhaps
they are. But mad or not, this is their plan.
As usual, Serbia is the first stop for those
attempting world domination. As usual, the Serbs are the "kraj," which means
"the end" in Serbian. The end, the outpost, the outpost of civilization against
What the Serbs do about this "peace agreement" will affect the whole course
of world history.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries."

The stakes are great indeed.
