Beginning in 1990 Germany and the United States sought and achieved the breakup of Yugoslavia in two stages—1992-1995 and 1998-1999. The German government aimed at this division because it wanted to include as territory of its “vital interest” Slovenia and Croatia, the most economically developed states of the Yugoslavian confederation. These states were old allies in the Second World War (the Ustashi fascist group in Croatia and the nationalists in Slovenia). Through them Germany would achieve access to the Adriatic Sea.The United States was interested in the more recently established states (Bosnia, Serbia, the former Socialist Republic of Macedonia), which controlled the only route from east to west and from north to south though the Balkan mountains.
We were told by our media that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. There were none. We were told by our media that Al-Qaeda had links to Saddam Hussein. There were no links. We were told Hussein sought to buy uranium from Africa. This was not true. Kosovo was a separatist terrorist conflict meant to create a Muslim state of Kosova as part of Greater Albania. We should question a media and a government that brainwashes and deceives its own citizens.Where is the other side to the Bosnian conflict?http://www.iacenter.org/bosnia/euro.htm Background chapters provide a context for the Bosnian War that the mainstream media has systematically ignored. During World War II, Adolf Hitler made Bosnia a part of a Greater Croatia which was ruled by Croatian Roman Catholic and Bosnian Muslim leaders. This Nazi/fascist Ustasha regime, made up of Croats and Bosnian Muslims, embarked upon a systematic and planned campaign of genocide against Serbs, Jews, and Roma. Hundreds of thousands of Serbs were murdered in Bosnia and Croatia.In Bosnia, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem came to Sarajevo in 1943 to form the Bosnian Muslim Nazi SS Division Handzar or Handschar, made up of Bosnian Muslims.Bosnian Muslim political leaders had written a famous Memorandum in 1942 to Adolf Hitler requesting that he make Muslim Bosnia a part of the Nazi New Order. All of this factual background is censored and suppressed in our free societies and by our free media.Genegal Ratko Mladic was the first General to fight Islamic fundamentalism in Europe.“Bosniacs, Nazi Muslims, Mujahideen, and Bin Laden" traces the rise of Bosnian Muslim fascism and its connection to Islamic fundamentalism as exemplified by the Nazi SS Handzar Division during WWII, which was organized by Himmler and Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Alija Izetbegovic, former President of Bosnia-Herzegovina, began his career as recruiter for the Handzar Division and acted as a historical link, connecting resurgent Muslim fascism and fundamentalism in Yugoslavia in the 1990s to that of WWII.This is the context for the Bosnian civil war and for Ratko Mladic, whose father was killed in 1945 fighting Nazi Croat and Bosnian Muslim forces during the Holocaust. This event cast a shadow on Mladic's view of Bosnia and Croatia. He did not want a repeat of World War II. He did not want to witness again the genocide and mass murder of the Serbian population. This is an important fact in showing what motivated Mladic.Ossama bin Laden made an official visit to Sarajevo in 1994.http://globalresearch.ca/articles/DCH109A.html Al-Qaeda forces were actively fighting as members of the Bosnian Muslim Army under ultra-nationalist radical Muslim leader Alija Izetbegovic. Iran was the major backer and supplier of the Bosnian Muslim forces. Izetbegovic visited Tehran in 1993. None of this factual material has been presented in the media. It has been censored and suppressed. Why? The Bosnian Muslims had a well-armed military division stationed in Srebrenica.The Muslims did not demilitarize Srebrenica; instead they used the so-called "safe area" as a base from which to attack the Bosnian-Serb army and the surrounding Serbian villages. Oric burned down Serbian Orthodox churches, murdered Serbian civilians and POWs, and burned down at least 50 Serbian villages. His forces would castrate and cut the throats of Serbian POWs and civilians and mutilate the bodies, usually by decapitating the corpse or by circumcizing the victim. Oric told the UN commander Philippe Morillon that he never took any Serbian prisoners.This created the background to Srebrenica.http://www.israpundit.com/ Here is how French Gen. Philippe Morillon, commander of the UN troops in Bosnia from 1992 to 1993,described him: “Naser Oric engaged in attacks during Orthodox holidays and destroyed villages, massacring all the inhabitants. This created a degree of hatred that was quite extraordinary in the region ….” Srebrenica was a military defeat and disaster for the Bosnian Muslim faction. It was a military loss. All those killed were well-armed Bosnian Muslim military forces.The International Committee of the Red Cross and The New York Times reported that about 3,000 Muslim soldiers who fought their way across Serb held territory to Muslim lines near Tuzla, were also survivors. The ICRC confirmed that these soldiers were redeployed by the Bosnian Army "without their families being informed." The figure of 3,000 soldiers who survived was also confirmed by Muslim Gen. Enver Hadzihasanovic, who testified at The Hague. These figures made it clear that at least 38,000 Srebrenica residents survived out of a population of 40,000 before the capture of the enclave. Around 2,000 Muslims who fled with the 28th Division were killed, most by fighting, but also hundreds executed [440!] by paramilitary units and a mercenary group.When is killing armed soldiers in a war considered "genocide"? Ratko Mladic is a tragic hero because he fought the rising tide of Islamic fundamentalism and neo-fascism in the Balkan. http://rt.com/news/hague-mladic-interview-rt/ http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25726. http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/GER108A.html http://www.vho.org/tr/2004/2/Copley217f.html http://www.balkanstudies.org/articles/imperial-democracy-balkan http://www.currentconcerns.ch/index.php?id=439 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMYT2Trbvnk
