The exoneration of a man accused of the worst of crimes, genocide, made no headlines. Neither the BBC nor CNN covered it. The Guardian allowed a brief commentary. Such a rare official admission was buried or suppressed, understandably. It would explain too much about how the rulers of the world rule.
Far from conspiring with the convicted Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, Milosevic actually “condemned ethnic cleansing”, opposed Karadzic and tried to stop the war that dismembered Yugoslavia.
So there's one NATO-destroyed country that was raided and pillaged by multinationals with the media lies to garner public support. And just look at the model of those media lies:
Milosevic was the victim of war propaganda that today runs like a torrent across our screens and newspapers and beckons great danger for us all. He was the prototype demon, vilified by the western media as the “butcher of the Balkans” who was responsible for “genocide”, especially in the secessionist Yugoslav province of Kosovo. Prime Minister Tony Blair said so, invoked the Holocaust and demanded action against “this new Hitler”. David Scheffer, the US ambassador-at-large for war crimes [sic], declared that as many as “225,000 ethnic Albanian men aged between 14 and 59” may have been murdered by Milocevic’s forces.
And look what Madeleine Albright (special place in Hell) offered him if he didn't want his country destroyed:
Albright delivered an “offer” to Milosevic that no national leader could accept. Unless he agreed to the foreign military occupation of his country, with the occupying forces “outside the legal process”, and to the imposition of a neo-liberal “free market”, Serbia would be bombed.
The article goes on to mention all the other post-911 wars that really used the Multinational butchering of Yugoslavia to steal resources as a model.
It's worth a read to see how false and manipulative mainstream media is, and how loathesome Western politicians are, and what miserable "governance" they provide us with.
Magical thinking helps people to accept poor governance.
That's why religion and entertainment media are so popular.
