A War Crime Twenty Years Later?

A Clinton war crime, 20 years later.

Of course any thing spoken by Hillary can’t possibly be taken seriously.

She’s a pathological liar.

H/T for comment from Jim O’Neill in the paragraph below.

Clinton’s campaign was a grave abuse of imperial power — intervention in a sovereign nation not for any diplomatic or strategic purposes, but simply to show we could do it. But perhaps all of it was worthwhile if it ended ethnic tensions, even if it did so based on a lie that the violence was coming solely from one side.

Both Clinton’s represent a blight on the U.S. Presidency, while we need look no further than Benghazi to string both Hillary and Obama up until they are muerto.

Twenty -years ago today, ash settled over Serbia, then a republic of Yugoslavia, in the wake of more than two months of continued bombings by NATO. The campaign had been initiated by President Bill Clinton. NATO acted without the authorization of the United Nations.

To be such a psychopathic liar one would need an excellent memory.

Whoops ! She made a mistake?

I don’t think so.

Its states justified what they called “Operation Noble Anvil” as a humanitarian operation to respond to the Kosovo War.

Then President Bill Clinton didn’t want to chance any U.S. pilots being shot down with his election coming up.

Of all the atrocities levied by the Clintons, perhaps none is more unjustified, brutal, and lasting as his Serbian legacy.

The Kosovo War featured two sparring, violent sides with legitimate claims on the land in question. Kosovo had been a historical homeland of the Serbs, one from which Ottoman colonists had sought to purge them. Neighboring Albanians, aligned with the Ottomans, soon migrated to Kosovo, where a Serbian population ebbed but persisted nonetheless. Once Serbia had liberated itself from Ottoman conquest and then Habsburg rule, the newly independent principality of Serbia pushed many Albanians out of Kosovo toward the end of the 19th century. Kosovo remained a part of the Kingdom of Serbia, then communist Yugoslavia, all the way up until the Kosovo War.

Both sides committed ample atrocities, as they had through history. The Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts found that Serbs in Kosovo in the 1980s were subjected to the worst “physical, political, legal and cultural genocide” since the Nazis and Axis powers invaded the region in 1941. Ethnic tensions escalated over the next decade, coming to a head with the emergence of the ethno-nationalist Kosovo Liberation Army. The State Department deemed it a terrorist organization in 1998. That year, the KLA began to attack Serbian forces and the war broke out in full. The Yugoslavian crackdown on Albanians matched and at times exceeded the KLA’s brutality. Clinton decided to align with the KLA. One year later, he bombed the Serbs.

Clinton’s defense secretary hypothesized on national television that Serbs had “murdered” 100,000 Albanians. In reality, that number was likely between 4,000 and 5,000 over the course of a year-and-a-half-long war, and certainly not more than 11,000 — nowhere near the 100,000 figure used to gin up support for a war in which Clinton authorized bombings that killed hundreds of Serb civilians.

As a purely legal affair, the NATO bombing was an embarrassment. Amnesty International considers it a war crime. The U.N. Security Council did not vote to permit it as required under its charter for invasions of sovereign nations. As a “humanitarian” affair, the Kosovo War was a catastrophe. NATO intentionally bombed the headquarters of Radio Television Serbia — a literal, physical attack on civilian journalists sanctioned by the United States. We bombed Belgrade’s Chinese embassy, killing three journalists and Chinese nationals in the process. More than two months after the bombings began, Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic accepted NATO’s terms of surrender. By end of the bombings, NATO had killed some 500 Yugoslav civilians.

In the decade following the end of the Kosovo War, NATO and the U.N. kept a presence in Kosovo, transitioning to eventual independence, which it maintains to this day.

All’s well that ends well, right? Sure, Clinton’s campaign was a grave abuse of imperial power — intervention in a sovereign nation not for any diplomatic or strategic purposes, but simply to show we could do it. But perhaps all of it was worthwhile if it ended ethnic tensions, even if it did so based on a lie that the violence was coming solely from one side.

In the aftermath of the “liberation,” Kosovo expelled hundreds of thousands of Serbs and Kosovar minorities and murdered hundreds. In one particularly brutal case, an anti-Serb pogrom in 2004 displaced thousands, burned hundreds of homes and Orthodox churches, and killed dozens.

Just don’t call it ethnic cleansing.

Today, Kosovo has Europe’s youngest population and its highest unemployment rate. Three out of five Kosovars are unemployed, its people remain ethnically stratified and its minorities terrorized. Kosovo’s currently waging a trade war on Serbia, instituting a 100% tariff on all Serbian imports.

For its part, Serbia has recovered somewhat. Yugoslav officials arrested Milosevic for corruption shortly after the war. The government, economy, and culture have all strengthened, but there’s one interesting side effect of NATO intervention.

Although Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union were both communist powers, rulers Josip Tito of the former and Josef Stalin of the latter notoriously despised each other. Soviet forces at one point threatened outright war against the Balkan nation. Yet when the world coalesced to destroy Serbia’s capital, Serbia found a friend in the newly established Russian Federation. To this day, Russia remains the sole vote on the U.N. Security Council standing against the interests of the Kosovo government.

I visited Belgrade and its many ruins last year and was surprised to find that Vladimir Putin was a bit of folk hero there. He appears on tourist shirts in the bustling Kalemegdan Park and the Serbs who I spoke with were quite vocal in their support for him. When I asked about the Clintons, they made sure to express their ire with just one stipulation: our old president, they emphasize, was a monster. But they may just find themselves falling for President Trump.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Wars always have collateral damages and innocent victims. That result is common to all wars ever recorded in History. The American Revolution and Civil War were no exception. In fact “Gang Wars” have the same problem of innocent victims.

    Current estimates are that about 8,500 people die every day from starvation in the world. Trash collection and disposal is an issue here in America while other countries are starving from lack of food we in America throw out – every day. As a kids I heard this sad tale at meal time – there are kids in China starving so eat what you have!

    According to the World Population Clock the global population is increasing at about 200,000 net new people every day. The dilemma of distribution of food has always been an issue for as long as I can remember – the past 70 years and much longer if the history books are accurate.

    The Greedy assholes at the top have always used the People to rule the world. Here in America we justify taking away the land from the native American Indians for our benefit on what grounds? Life is simply not fair and the past experiences of the unjust world will never be corrected without some major changes.

    President Trump is working on this dilemma and he is making some progress against formidable forces – currently called the “Deep State”. Hopefully, President Trump will be successful because if not then America is doomed. The Bush – Clinton – Obama criminal syndicate needs to be exterminated and that process has started.

    Hopefully America will not fall victim to another shooting revolution here. However, there are thousands of people polarized on both sides of this internal civil war in America and the resolution will happen before the 2020 Election.

    The Bush – Clinton – Obama Crime Syndicate had 28 years ton organize and insert their soldiers into the very fabric of America’s political system. President Trump has had a very difficult and short period of time to establish his “team” into position.to operate and achieve the objective. We must all remember that the Businessman Trump developed a Plan and then set out to accomplish his plan. However, when you are up to your ass in alligators it is difficult to remember that your initial objective was to clean the swamp!
