Not so Stubborn Facts and Quite Stubborn Narratives: The Worst Take on War in Yugoslavia Ever

Narrative this ... narrative that. Getting kind a tiresome, isn't it? Well, Kali Tribune never tires of pointing out that narratives cannot be true or false, only tiresome or, in certain instances, dangerous. Here we'll prove this point again by dissecting probably the worst to date exposition on war in Yugoslavia (and competition is indeed strong). The author, notably starting from declarative extreme empiricist position, goes on to prove that what he sees as present was also the past. And in the process gets just about everything wrong in unintentionally comical fashion. In conclusion to the brief exposition of what actually happened in the early Nineties in this ill fated region, we point out an ominous tendency of amateur/alternative research to fit itself into quite an Orwellian mold of transforming the past into virtual reality by making it the mirror image of the present. And all of this supposedly based on "stubborn facts".

Btw. you'll also learn a Croatian word for "Boeing". Definitely not to be missed.

Business as usual – War in Yugoslavia and vintage New World Order

This is an article written in 1992. by acclaimed Croatian journalist and USA citizen Ivo Škorić, covering the ties of State Department officials, diplomats and businessmen with Yugoslav and Serbian leadership, in the wake and during the first year of the war that followed political dissolution of Yugoslavia. Anyone interested in the end of Cold War and restructuring of Eastern Europe should give this a look. Albeight highly emotional – after all, at the time of writing author’s country was almost overrun by former “brothers” with the purpose of eradicating or expelling it’s citizens – this article provides some valuble clues about relationship of Slobodan Milošević, Yugoslav state controlled economy and Army on the one hand, and some important representatives of American branch of globalist elite on the other hand – Eagleburger, Vance, Kissinger and others. The article was updated only once in 2001., but is still an essential, perhaps the only available, introduction to deep politics of Yugoslav War.
