A View of the Fall of Yugoslavia

NATO bombing of Kosovo (Novi Sad)

In 1999

Yugoslavia was culturally and economically the most advanced country in the communist sphere at the time of the Soviet Union. Among the Yugoslavs, the Serbians were the ones who possessed a sense of their nation’s unique history and culture. 

In 1987, Slobodan Milošević came to power in Yugoslavia on wave of the high support that he received from the Serbians, who wanted to suppress Islamic insurgency (spearheaded by the Bosnian mujahideen groups), control the communist movements, and ensure that Yugoslavia remained united. 

The Americans don’t like nationalist movements, especially if such movements erupt outside North America and Western Europe. They went after Milošević, branded him as a mass murderer, and destroyed the back of Serbian nationalism by imposing sanctions and conducting bombing raids. 

Germany played a role in the dismemberment of Yugoslavia—in December 1991, Germany became the first Western nation to recognize Croatia, which is home to a large German population that had sided with the Nazis during the Second World War. 

In 1999, NATO conducted bombing raids on Kosovo causing massive casualties among the Serbian population. In the same year, Milošević suffered the ignominy of being the first sitting head of the state to be charged with war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal. He died in mysterious circumstances in 2006. 

The Machiavellians in America and Western Europe want to do to Russia what they did to Yugoslavia, and they want to do to the Russian President Putin what they did to Milošević. If Russia loses the Ukraine war, then there is no doubt that America and Western Europe will chop Russia into pieces and feast on the carcass of this nation.
