NATO's Rape of Yugoslavia

Ernesto Weber | 25.03.2014 23:17 | History | Repression | Terror War | Cambridge

March 24, 1999 will go down in history as a day of infamy. US-led NATO raped Yugoslavia. Doing so was its second major combat operation. It was lawless aggression. No Security Council resolution authorized it. NATO's Operation Allied Force lasted 78 days. Washington called it Operation Noble Anvil. Evil best describes it. On June 10, operations ended. From March 1991 through mid-June 1999, Balkan wars raged. Yugoslavia "balkanized" into seven countries. They include Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia.

Enormous human suffering was inflicted. Washington bears most responsibility. Diana Johnstone's book titled "Fools' Crusade: Yugoslavia, NATO and Western Delusions" is a definitive account of what happened. Claims about Milosevic's "Greater Serbia" ambitions were false. Washington-led wars wanted Yugoslavia balkanized. Germany was very much involved. Both countries encouraged cessation. They provoked conflict. After ravaging and destroying Yugoslavia, they took credit for ending it. ........... more ......... by Stephen Lendman
