International Holocaust Day
As for the numbers killed at Jasenovac, I have seen a list of names. I will have to look that up again for people who question the numbers.
In my opinion anyone who kills even one person without a damn good reason, something like defending himself or his family for example, needs to be punished, whatever his nationality. I was among the first to call for the severest of punishments for any Serb who committed an atrocity, wherever that was.
As for Kosovo, even the official figures have been dropped from the incendiary figure of 100,000, which was used for purposes we all know about, down to 10,000, and NOW down to the realistic 3,000 -- three thousand that includes Serbs and Albanians. Three thousand in a civil war. Of course the revised figures, now that the propaganda has already taken hold worldwide, don't get any press. The mission has already been accomplished with the inital lies.
The "genocide" stick is used a little too readily by some who have genocidal blood on their own hands and would like to put over that guilt onto others as well as by those who have opted to sell a story that continues to sell to an ignorant and naive public.
I, too, am getting tired of the lies about this issue, for example the refrigerated truck lies.
Furthermore, I have had conversations with a man who was the American second in command at the very beginning in Kosovo and spent a few years there. He told me that the Americans were well aware of what was really going on there and he showed me his contempt for the Albanians he had observed there, but it will be a long time before the West ever admits the fabrications about that part of the world -- and I am extremely weary of THAT denial.
May all victims of genocide be remembered, sincerely, honestly and with integrity. That includes the Armenians and those at Jasenovac, the first being often left out of commemorations and second always.
I've debated with Kosovo Albanians before. They use the same deceptive tactics and hysteria that they have been using for 3 decades in their land grab.
I don't know that I'll visit here again -- maybe, maybe not. But your readers will know where to find me.
As far as whether you visit or not,if you don't like what you see here, no one is making you visit.
As well saying I don't do my homework is not going to impress me. I get that from Albanians too on occasion, if you read this blog you know that.
If you don't like how I do my blog, you could try doing one of your own.
Here's some links for you. You can go ahead and read them. As far as possible I've gone with neutral sources.
The famous film from space
and before you start in on me about that
probably Serbian civilians in this case, 13 of them, do you intend to be as dismissive of smaller mass graves now?
Then there were bodies which were moved, a technique common in BiH btw
then there's this kind of barbaric behavior, people thrown into wells
German soldiers found mass graves
a blog that has some interesting information
BBC story on mass grave in Kosovo
and yes it is the U.S. State Department
CBC story on a mass grave found in Kosovo fairly recent find
over 400 children in mass grave
Furthermore, I have had conversations with a man who was the American second in command at the very beginning in Kosovo and spent a few years there. He told me that the Americans were well aware of what was really going on there and he showed me his contempt for the Albanians he had observed there,
That was slightly sloppy writing on your part, you should say who this man was, and say roughly when you conversed with him.
I think you can hardly call yourself neutral on these issues, any more than I am, unless you are delusional. Just look at how you accuse me of being in denial -- I can't be in denial if the thing I'm supposed to be in denial about never happened the way it's portrayed. You accept the BBC version of the world, eh? Talk about denial!
I didn't COME here to argue - I wanted to see what your blog was about as I look at as much information as I can find on the Balkans. Unfortunately, I noticed the reference to Holocaust Day, which I was already aware of. Those commemorations are usually a crock used by someone or other with an agenda, and glossing over yet another one by the media in general is unforgiveable. Most Americans, no most people in the world, have never even heard of Jasenovac. It was the 3rd biggest extermination of WW2 and it's never taught about outside the Balkans. As for Kosovo, even the American government who propagated the false 100,000 figures now admits officially that it was 3,000 that died there -- 3,000 too many, perhaps, but it wasn't 100,000 or even 10,000. We're all just pawns of politicians and I'm sorry if I am not making nice under the circumstances. I think, in fact, that I have been very restrained in view of the deliberate misinformation that has been planted all over the place and the complacency and ignorance with which people just accept it as "fact" just because it's on TV or something.
If you want to post lists of links, I can take yours and give you back twice as many that contradict what yours say. I'm already familiar with most of the ones you listed. and that's a game that's easily played. Would you like a list from me? I didn't think so...
Nevertheless,I'll offer you this one that I recently discovered -- a blog of the highest integrity with research to back its claims, and, no, it's not neutral either:
And I do have my own blog.
When something is a matter of public record their current private life doesn't matter. If you are shielding someone who said some perfectly awful things, then you should not have mentioned it at all. I would love to have seen you at the short end of my last English instructor with this lame nonsense. She'd say 'name names or say nothing about it!' I got that on something in one of my papers, and fortunately was able to name names.
If it would ruin his life, a GENTLEMAN would NEVER having had such a conversation.
