really happened in Srebrenica?
o Why have they chosen this moment,
exactly ten years after the events, to show a video depicting the execution of six Muslims?
this media euphoria, in which the highest state officials of Serbia took part,
lead to a national catharsis, or is it only the fulfillment of the
obligations that the Government of Serbia marionettes accepted before
the Nato-ordered coup of October 5, 2000?
much is this political exhibitionism of our politicians going to
cost, and who will pay for it?
Srebrenica operation was planned so that Bosnian Serb forces were
positioned in a shape of a
horseshoe, thus intentionally leaving space for the Muslim army and
civilians to retreat North, North-West towards Tuzla. The distance of 36km and the
configuration of the terrain are such that any man in average
physical condition can cross it on foot. The military operation
was conducted in this manner with the intention of minimizing
the number of casualties, since the Muslims had brought in
substantial military forces. If the Muslim forces had been hermetically
enclosed, a violent fight would have ensued in which the army of
Republika Srpska (RS) would also have suffered serious casualties.
Whence the horse - shoe plan.
this can be clearly seen on the above American map showing the withdrawal of
the Muslim army. It should also be noted that no ambush was set
up at Snagovo. Rather, the main contingent of the Muslim army itself planned to
infiltrate into the town of Zvornik and thus create a street fighting situation
for the army
of RS. The clashes at Nova Kasaba in the Konjevic Field
occurred due to the Muslim blockade of the main road that goes from Belgrade –
to Zvornik - to Vlasenica – to Han Pijesak – to Sarajevo, i.e. to Bosnian Serb capital Pale.
to army of RS data, between 600 and 700 Muslim fighters were
killed in that operation. Those were the ones who attempted to break the horse -
shoe ring in some places, in order to join up with dislocated Muslim
units elsewhere. Most of Muslim armed forces, as well as a part of the civilians,
reached Tuzla through uninterrupted mountain trails.
In the Srebrenica
and Zepa enclaves, held by the Muslim armed forces for almost
three years, there were between 6.5 and 7 thousand Muslim soldiers who
were under the protection of UN forces and who persistently attacked
the neighboring Serbian villages from these two UN safe zones. Such
a strategy of permanent aggression, eventually led to the
destruction of 128 villages in the vicinity of Srebrenica, in
which at least 2400 Serbian civilians were killed. The Muslim strategy of
maintaining strong forces in Srebrenica and Zepa had several goals.
First, it was intended to tie up a significant part of the Serbian military forces
in defense against these continuous Muslim attacks. This way, those
Serb forces could not be transferred to the Sarajevo front to
reinforce the siege of Sarajevo. Next, as suggested by Croatian and
Western strategists, it was necessary to physically separate the Republic of
Srpska from its border with Serbia in order to ease its
destruction later on. For this reason, the West located their protected enclaves
along the Drina River, the border between Serbia and the Bosnian Serb Republic,
in places such as Srebrenica, Zepa, and Gorazde. Moreover,
the strong Western propaganda about ‘thousands of killed’ was aimed at shifting
the attention of the world community away from the real
atrocities, committed by Muslim forces in Bratunac, Kravica, Skelani and other
burned down Serbian villages around Srebrenica, in which only Serbian
civilians were murdered.
in East Bosnia, the fight with Muslim forces lasted
a full three years. In that limited geographical area, the Muslims
frequently buried the soldiers who died in those battles,
together with their civilian casualties, in the same mass graves.
These bodies are now being exhumed as alleged
genocide victims. Several months after the fall of Srebrenica, our
team of pathologists, led by General Stankovic, in cooperation with Western
pathologists, found in all mass graves a total of 1,284 bodies that
were to be identified by DNK and other methods. These
investigations lasted until the middle of 1997, when the
investigations were halted by orders from the West, which
considered the number of bodies found by that time to be a fair
approximation of the total number of dead. Moreover, after five
years of intensive search by KFOR and Hague investigators in the
territory of Srebrenica, no more than 1,700 bodies were found in
all mass graves combined.
the bombing of Serbia in 1999, Srebrenica accusation was resurrected and new
mass graves suddenly started appearing, but now Western experts, under
the protection of the Hague Tribunal, were the exclusive
investigators. To this day those investigations seem not to be finished.
graves keep appearing, and at present they claim to have found 3,000 alleged
victims. It would not be surprising if the number
reaches 12 to 15 thousands. Hopefully they will be careful enough not
to boost the number beyond the total civilian population of that
I was the consultant of Radovan
Karadzic during the execution of the Srebrenica operation and I
was with him during that operation. Immediately after the end of the
military operation I was sent to Srebrenica in order to organize busses
and trucks to transport Muslim civilians to the Tuzla
region. There was no indication of any massacre going on, and none of
the UN soldiers who were present during the entire operation
pointed to something like that. At that time they did not make
any declaration or comment that would indicate that a massacre had
occured. Only later, under instructions from their headquarters,
did they start claiming that there were killings of civilians and mass
executions, all as part of the media propaganda campaign dictated from
lobbying groups and other centers of world power.
the first elections in Bosnia, after the Dayton Agreement, due to Muslim
carelessness and their wish to make as strong a showing as possible,
several thousand of those supposedly "massacred" in Srebrenica and
Zepa appeared at voting stations throughout Bosnia! Later, they
were all urgently issued new documents with different names, in
other to further freely exploit the ongoing farce about
particular role in that region was played by the French Foreign Legion.
This was because French General Morillon was the commander of UN
forces for the protected zones for a long period of time. Contrary
to the agreement on the creation of safe zones, he tolerated thousands of
armed Muslims and even armed them, bringing weapons in under cover of
humanitarian convoys. Our
state possesses video recordings that prove beyond dispute, with
cameras in place, that arms and ammunitions were delivered to
Srebrenica Muslims in trucks labelled "humanitarian aid."
Furthermore, we also have rich video documentation of the
massacre of Serbs in the villages around Srebrenica, but it is not
convenient for this marionette Government [in Serbia] to show them to the public.
If that material was to be shown, both our and the world community would
get quite different
insights into the events in Srebrenica and why it was necessary for
Republica Srpska to
neutralize that "Safe zone."
suspiciously, the story of the Zepa safe zone has been completey deleted from
Srebrenica media fabrications. That is because round 1,500 Muslim soldiers
were captured there with a substantial arsenal of arms. All of them
were safely transported across the Drina River to Serbia, and later to Bosnia,
without anyone losing a single
hair on their head. Before they were returned to Bosnia, numerous
"humanitarian expeditions," including that of Ms Ogata, visited those
imprisoned soldiers to verify that the prisoners were being treated fairly.
The Zepa UN safe zone is nowhere mentioned, because it is
a strong evidence of just how our army behaved during that clash. It
should be noted that the operations at Srebrenica and Zepa were
carried out simultaneously under the same Serbian commanders
who are accused of conducting a massacre in
Srebrenica. Perhaps the Muslims from Zepa were more to the liking of
those commanders and for that reason they transferred them safely to Serbia
without killing a single person.
is a video recording, supposedly made 10 years ago, being shown
at this particular time?
The video recording of the execution
of six Muslims, which is repeatedly being shown by all media, and
which was first shown in Serbia by George Soros’ B92 (but who else?)
is only a part
of the media organized campaign timed to take place just before
the beginning of important negotiations on
the status of the Serbian Province of Kosovo.
has nothing to do with ‘facing the truth’, so-called, because
the supposed crime presented in the video has nothing to do
with Srebrenica. The alleged crime was, we are told, committed in the
vicinity of Trnovo near Sarajevo, i.e. 170 km from Srebrenica.
Linking that crime with Srebrenica is intended to revamp the myth
of the suffering of Srebrenica Muslims just in time for the tenth
anniversary of the event, at which our President Tadic plans to
appear with an apology. It is a continuation of the propaganda
war, aimed at portraying the Serbs to the world as a
genocidal nation. Against such a nation, all is justified including
the bombing of 1999. Such a nation does not deserve to retain Kosovo
as part of its state. This way the hands of our poor "statesman" will be tied,
since he is supposedly a
representative of the genocidal people during international
negotiations. This way also, Repulika Srpska, the Bosnian Serb Republic,
is a genocidal
creation that should be destroyed as such. A guardianship should be
imposed on the Serbs. That is why everything possible is being done
to force the Serbs "to face" the supposed "truth", so that the West
remains pure and moral. For this purpose all available means are
employed, involving a spectrum so diverse as to include
"non-governmental" organizations and
foundations, but also certain venal Serbian intellectuals
as well as the world propaganda machinery i.e., the mass media.
this purpose of imposing the "truth", Paddy Ashdown has nimbly
included himself. He angrily tore up the report of the independent
commission of RS about the alleged crimes in Srebrenica and under the
threat of the replacing the president Cavic and all
other leaders of Republika Srpska, he demanded that the figure of 8,000 Muslim
victims be accepted. That is the only report he
expects from them. Also, in order to dismantle Republika Srpska and hand
it over to a united Bosnia, this English democrat, quite "democratically" kicked out
73 legally elected RS officials from their posts, just because
they dared think with their own heads and they dared defend the clauses signed in
the Dayton agreement.
are working to construct such an image of the Serbs, ranging from
the (well known to us) International Crisis Group (ICG) to the
office of David Barnow, which is often mentioned as the source of
"information" about the supposed massacre of 6,000 and
later 8,000 Muslim civilians
in Srebrenica. That office is a well paid Muslim lobbying center in
the United States, which created and still conducts the
campaign about Srebrenica, as well as the earlier fabrications about
thousands of raped Muslim women, concentration camps for
of politicians and the current Government
tragedy is not Srebrenica, nor even other Serb gallows. Our problem
is the existing marionette government that does not try to fight for
the truth, nor to defend national dignity and Serbian interests. Our
tragedy is the fact that our state politics is in the hands of
Natasa Kandic and the gang of other such foreign employees. Our
tragedy is that our President plans to apologize as ordered by the Western powers
in disregard to the consequences for the state and the nation.
hid the truth in order not to irritate the West. He was
trying to "buy" time for himself - a few more years in his presidential
position. Despite that he is now in The Hague. The question remains, is he
willing, at least now, to present the full truth? That will depend on the
availability to him of all the documentation that we have. Or, maybe he
will eventually accept some negotiation with the tribunal in order to
ease his own sentence. Many have done that so far.
the Serbian people it would be ideal if the whole truth could be
presented. We the Serbs, for the sake of the truth, have the
obligation to respond fiercely to the lies and constructions because
it is the only way for our nation to undergo a real catharsis. It is
a crime to kill one man, let alone the cold-blooded murder of
six people. However, such crimes are acts of ill-minded individuals
who have their own first and last name. They are the ones who should be
tried in a court, no doubt. In the recent civil and religious clashes
in these lands there were various awful crimes perpetrated by all sides. We
should not create epic poems about some of them and forget the others as
if they had never happened.
these civil, religious clashes, the Serbs have been ethnically
cleansed from Slovenia, Croatia, from a part of Bosnia and from
Kosovo and Metohija, but only Serbs are accused of ethnic
cleansing. Others started the wars, but only we are accused regardingr the
wars and the disintegration of Yugoslavia. Just take a look at
the above ethnic map and you will see clearly that a Greater Croatia was
created. But it is we who are accused creating a Greater Serbia.
How long will those lies and falsifications continue? When
will our state leadership submit to the West all
those facts, which are clearly evident and easily provable? When
will they say to the United States and EC that Albanians can get exactly
the same degree of the autonomy that the above West gave to the Serbian people in
Croatia, i.e. Krajina? I hope soon. If this cannot be done by
the present leadership, then a new leadership will have to do it.
