Video: The Illegal NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia By Milo Dubak

Vice President of 28 June Movement Milo Dubak Addresses United Nations Human Rights Council

28. Jun Vice President Milo Dubak delivered a blistering speech at the United Nations in Geneva today strongly condemning the illegal NATO bombing of Yugoslavia one week before the 20th anniversary of the tragedy. At the 40th Session of the Human Rights Council dealing with racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia, Mr. Dubak’s speech drew gasps and shocked stares as he highlighted the absurdity of Montenegro’s NATO membership stating “I have the distinction of being the only speaker here who hails from a country which bombed itself”. He went on to denounce the use of depleted uranium and “decades of subsequent suffering” inflicted by the bombing.

Some Explanations About the Fall of ‘Real Socialism’

Why did ‘real socialism’ and, in particular the Soviet Union, fall? Let me note a few explanations that have been offered. With respect to the Soviet Union, one very interesting explanation that has been suggested is that it’s all the fault of Mikhail Gorbachev. And not simply the errors of Gorbachev but the treachery. Those who offer this explanation rely in particular upon a document which is sometimes described as his confession. This document begins as follows:

NATO Triggers Destruction, Insecurity and Poverty. It Must be Abolished! By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and Silvia Cattori

Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya interviewed by Silvia Cattori


[Mahdi D. Nazemroaya at Montreal airport upon his return from war-torn Libya in September 2011]

Appreciated for the rigor and the accuracy of his analysis, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, age 30, has emerged as one of the best scholars on NATO. His articles, which have been translated into many languages, have acquired an international audience and, today, his book The Globalization of NATO has become a reference guide. In 400 dense, fascinating and worrying pages it makes us realize the extent of the threat that NATO poses to world peace and to the future of many nations. It also makes us aware of the urgency involved in obtaining the dissolution of this dangerous organization.

Imperialism In The X-Factor Age By Colin Todhunter

26 October, 2012 — Global Research

In Vietnam, Agent Orange was dropped by the US to poison a foreign population. In Iraq and the former Yugoslavia, depleted uranium was used. In Western countries, things are a bit more complicated because various states have tended to avoid using direct forms of physical violence to quell their own populations (unless you belong to some marginalized group or hit a raw nerve, as did the Occupy Movement last year). The pretence of democracy and individual rights has to be maintained.

Current crisis as a test for a multi polar world By Alexey Pilko

15 March, 2012 — Voice of Russia

The crisis in Syria and the way it unfolded shows that the model of international relations that developed after the collapse of the bipolar system has changed in the last ten years. The idea of the unipolarity is still on the table, but it is becoming more and more blurred. The relations between governments, nation states are becoming more complicated and multi-polar.

To prove the statement above, it is enough to recall the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia in 1999. It was a typical situation, with an ethnic conflict breaking out that led to the formation of a separatist enclave on the territory of a sovereign state. Continue reading

New geopolitical orientation completed: What do the killings of Milosevic, Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi have in common? By Hannes HOFBAUER

NATO’s Afrika Korps Escalates War Of Attrition Against Libya

11 June 11, 2011 —

The relentless and intensifying Western air war against Libya will soon enter its fourth month. For the first thirteen days starting on March 19 under the control of U.S. Africa Command and Operation Odyssey Dawn and thereafter the North Atlantic Treaty Organization-led Operation Unified Protector, the air assaults represent the second longest armed aggression in NATO’s history, already surpassing by a week the 78-day bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Only the now nearly decade-long war in Afghanistan exceeds the current campaign in length.

Rerun: Kosovo “Freedom Fighters” Financed by Organised Crime By Michel Chossudovsky

4 January, 2011 — Global ResearchCovert Action Quarterly – 1999-04-10

Author’s note
This article was published almost 12 years ago, at the height of the NATO bombings of Yugoslavia.

Deafening silence of the Western corporate media. The links of the KLA to organized crime, which are now being revealed by the European Parliament’s investigation were known and documented by Interpol and the US Congress prior to the onslaught of the 1999 war on Yugoslavia.

The KLA insurgency was an initiative of NATO. The KLA killings were directed against Albanian, Serbian and Roma civilians.

Full Circle: NATO Completes Takeover Of Former Yugoslavia By Rick Rozoff

25 March, 2010 — Global Research

In 1991 the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was a nominally defensive military bloc with sixteen members that, as the cliche ran, had never fired a shot.

In 1991 the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was the only simultaneously multiethnic and multiconfessional nation (entirely) in Europe, consisting of six federated republics with diverse constituencies.

By 2009 NATO had grown to 28 full members and at least that many military partners throughout Europe and in Africa, the Caucasus, the Middle East, Asia and the South Pacific. Next month NATO is to hold a summit in Estonia to be attended by the foreign ministers of 56 nations. Last month a meeting of NATO’s Military Committee in Brussels included the armed forces chiefs of 63 nations, almost a third of the world’s 192 countries.

By 2008 the former Yugoslavia has been fragmented into six recognized nations (the former federal republics of Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia) and a semi-recognized province of Serbia, Kosovo.

As if destroying a country and its culture ain’t bad enough, how about destroying its future, its children? I want to scream it from the rooftops! We are complicit in crimes of such enormity that I find it difficult to find the words to describe how I feel about this crime committed in my name! In the name of the ‘civilized’ world?

Challenge the War Criminals By Morris William

1 February, 2010 — Labour against warLeftdemos of Britain

With its reformist strategy for a socialism within capitalism, the British Labour Party has always been a party fit for imperialism.

After its chauvinist backing of the inter-imperialist war of 1914-18, it has supported colonial wars when in opposition and launched them when in government.

With the further imperialist militarisation of the neo-liberal, global market, the Labour Government joined with the dominant imperialism of the United States in the ‘change of regime’ wars of occupation against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq.

To bring about electoral unity in action, it is essential that the principle war criminals, firstly, in the Labour Party and, secondly, in the opposition parties, be identified and their seats be contested by Labour Against War (LAW) candidates in any future election.

A minimal election manifesto should challenge the Labour war criminals by including calls for:

  • Commencing the withdrawal of British air, sea, land military and special forces from Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • The paying of reparations to the people of Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • The paying of compensation to the next of kin of the members of the British armed forces killed in the above ‘change of regime’ wars of occupation.
  • The withdrawal of all charges against members of the armed forces who refused to fight in these wars and the annulment of all sanctions already taken against them.
  • Ending the anti-labour and anti-terrorist laws which threaten us with a police state and fascism.
  • Support for all reforms that favour the social class of workers against the neo-liberal, freemarket agenda of the main parties.

If you generally support this approach to electoral unity in action against globalisation and war at the present time, please indicate if you would support the convening of a conference to discuss these and other proposals.

This statement is open for further discussion.
