Une dernière fois

Milosevic's alleged pursuit of a Greater Serbia was also a misreading of his actual policies, which were, first, to prevent the disintegration of Yugoslavia, and second, as that disintegration occurred to protect the Serb minorities in the new states and allow them either to remain in Yugoslavia or obtain autonomy in the new rump states. In fact, he was considered by the Bosnian Serbs and Krajina victims of Operation Storm to be a sell-out, eager to bargain away their interests in exchange for a possible lifting of sanctions on Yugoslavia. He did support the Bosnian Serbs, sporadically, but it is rarely mentioned that all the NATO powers and Saudi Arabia and Al Qaeda were supporting the Bosnian Muslims (and Croatia was supporting its allies in Bosnia).

So Milosevic was guilty of pursuing a Greater Serbia by trying to prevent the dissolution of Yugoslavia and feebly seeking to give stranded and threatened Serb populations protection! His "war" against Slovenia -- one of those "terrible conflicts" Tim Judah attributes to Milosevic -- was a half-hearted ten-day effort to prevent an illegal secession of that Republic, quickly terminated with minimal (and mainly Yugoslav army) casualties. Meanwhile, Tudjman, quite openly seeking a Greater Croatia, and Izetbegovic, trying to leverage U.S. and other NATO hostility to Yugoslavia into a means of compelling unwanted Greater Muslim rule in Bosnia, were just victims of the bad man! This is Orwell written into mainstream truth.

Diana Johnstone dit que Milosevic a tué du monde pour sauver la Yogouslavie unie et pour protéger les minorités serbes disséminées dans les provinces sécessionnistes. Les autres versions de cette histoire seraient orwelliennes.
Que dites-vous, vous même? Pourquoi une dernière fois?

Diana Johnstone dit que les médias occidentaux ont donné un crédit complet aux fabrications des publicistes de l'OTAN. Elle ne porte aucun jugement sur la valeur des gestes de Milosevic, et se réfère à ceux-ci en les situant dans le contexte des affirmations du 'camp du bien'. Pas question de nier que c'est un criminel, donc. Le lien 'Lectures' dans la barre de droite est très instructif, même lu par morceaux choisis. (c'est long).

Ne pas oublier qu'il s'agit d'un texte d'Edward Herman. J'avais fait un billet sur lui où je proposais la lecture d'un de ces textes, et je relançais plus tard avec À la douleur que j'ai, que j'ai. Une dernière fois était le troisième et dernier.
