NATO Finally Admits

Yugoslavs Carried Out No Mass Killings in Kosovo

The propaganda - NATO implications: 500,000 ... then 250,000 ... then 100,000 ... and now ... "at most, 3,000 people were killled."

On August 17, NATO officials privately conceded that the figures they released in 1999, allegedly a count of the people killed by Yugoslav forces in Kosovo and repeated in headlines all over the Western world, were much higher than the actual number of people killed there.

Independent findings by forensic teams of many nationalities working for

ICTY, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague, have forced NATO's admission. The ICTY say that a total of fewer than 3,000 bodies were exhumed and all have been examined.

While they have not yet officially released their report, spokespeople for ICTY said that "at most, 3,000 people were killed". They also said that there was no evidence of mutilations, that not all the dead can be proved to be victims of murder or execution and that many among them were Serbs or other non-Albanians.

Last year NATO charged that Yugoslav forces had massacred at least 10,000 people, but only after NATO spokespeople first tried to imply that 500,000, then 250,000, then 100,000 supposedly "missing" people had also been killed.

They used such claims to try to justify NATO bombings, that had in fact no basis under United Nations treaty laws, or, indeed, NATO's own charter.


NATO has now been forced to admit, in effect, that it waged a lying war of deliberate propaganda via the Western media, to win support for its own illegal intervention that is known to have killed over 3,000 Yugoslavian citizens, about one-third of them children.

Washington and NATO have not produced the slightest hard evidence that Yugoslav forces carried out even a small-scale massacre of civilians, let alone anything like the "genocide" which they were repeatedly charged with in the Western press and on TV news bulletins.

The ICTY - itself created and funded by the NATO powers - has now been forced to expose NATO's "Big Lie".

According to a report in the August 18 British Guardian, Mark Laity, the new acting NATO spokesperson, said: "NATO never said the missing were all dead. The figure we stood by was 10,000." Laity even protested, desperately trying to pretend that NATO's intervention had probably stopped further killing.

The truth is that NATO's bombing killed thousands of people, and drove many thousands more - Albanians as well as Serbs - from their homes. And, that only since NATO occupied Kosovo, right-wing Albanian forces have killed some 1,000 people, mostly Serb and Romany, while pushing those of all 23 other non-Albanian ethnic groups - (not one of which had any complaints when ruled from Belgrade ! - for almost a century !) - right out of the region.

during the months of April and May during the bombing:

- April 5: A 250-kilo NATO bomb aimed at Yugoslav army barracks in Aleksinac in southern Serbia misses its target and lands in a residential area. Death toll is 17.

- April 9: NATO hits homes near a telephone exchange in the Kosovo capital, Pristina. NATO said civilian casualties were possible.

- April 12: A NATO pilot fires two missiles into a train crossing a bridge at Grdelicka Klisura in southern Serbia, killing 55 people. NATO insists the bridge, a key supply line for Yugoslav forces in Kosovo, was the target and that the pilot saw the train too late.

- April 14: NATO bombs refugee convoys in the Djakovica region of south-east Kosovo, leaving 75 dead. NATO, without confirming the civilian toll, said it was targetting military vehicles but admitted hitting two convoys.

- April 28: NATO, aiming for an army barracks in the Serb village of Surdulica (250 kms south of Belgrade), bombs a residential area, leaving at least 20 civilians dead.

- May 1: NATO bombs a bridge at Luzane near Pristina, killing 47 people aboard a bus which was travelling along it. NATO, without confirming the figure, admitted the following day having targetted the bridge without the intention of causing civilian casualties.

- May 7: A NATO air raid hits central Nis in southeast Serbia, leaving at least 15 dead and 70 injured. NATO said its planes were aiming for a landing strip and a radio transmitter but that a cluster bomb had missed its mark.

- May 8: NATO mistakenly attacks the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, killing three journalists. The United States and NATO said the intended target was a Yugoslav building with military use, but US maps used in the planning of the operation were old and marked the embassy at a previous address.

- May 13: NATO bombs the village of Korisa, leaving 87 civilians dead. The allies claim that the civilians were being used a "human shields" and that Korisa was a legitimate military target.

- May 20: A Belgrade hospital is hit by a missile at around 1.00 a.m., killing three patients. NATO attributes the accident to a missile which went astray during an attack on a nearby military barracks.

- May 21: NATO bombs Istok prison in north-west Kosovo. Alliance officials insist the prison was being used as an assembly point for Serb forces in the province. At least 100 inmates and a prison officer were killed.

- May 22: NATO admits bombing by mistake positions of the Kosovo Liberation Army at Kosare, near the border with Albania. Sources close to the KLA say seven guerillas were killed and 15 injured.

- May 30: NATO bombs a highway bridge at Varvarin in a daytime raid in central Serbia. 11 people died while attempting to cross the bridge in their cars. NATO has not confirmed whether there were cars on the bridge and insists the bridge was a legitimate military garget.

- May 31: Missiles strike a sanatorium at Surdulica, southern Serbia, killing at least 20 people. NATO says it successfully attacked a military barracks in the town but refuses to confirm, or categorically deny, hitting the hospital.

Unfortunately, NATO is not a reliable source of information. I really wonder who is the worst liar in their ranks. Do they hold an annual competition for the title?

me, i got 2 reasons to sue: they illegally attacked & destabilized the region of my birth, and they lied & manipulated me as a canadian citizen.

like i said, we need to organize some sept 11-victim like lawsuits

so far, they've been able to maybe link one serious incident to the serbs - that truck with about 80 bodies - which, btw/ got heavy play in the western media

but what about the nato bombs that hit the passenger trains - there were at least 2 hit?

and what about the depleted uranium?

i smell some serious lawsuits in nato countries' futures

After all thats happened, hes showing the EU and the US their ugly side. No evidence, no proof - just a guy protecting his countrymen from bandits and terrorists, who refused to live by the common law.

US sanctions killed millions of Iraqi children. Who gives a flying f..k about September 11. We here about so much, because they control the world media. Thats how they spread their evil propoganda.

Did everyone that a modern Euorpean city was bombed by the US for 78 days and nights, just three years ago. Hitler was doing that kind of stuff, only American propoganda put its ''moral spin'' into over drive.

That show trial in the hague, is bul.lshi.t. US soldiers want to be excempt from its rules which they created.

The Albanians are lyers, they fake and stage their suffering like animals [or worse], and their is absolutely no evidence of ''mass graves'' committed by the Serbs. Thats propoganda.

You know that and I know that, and millions of others do too. ONe thing Slobo did was expose the lies and hypocracy of the West; that is why they stopped filming the ''show trial''. Slobo was showing photos of dead people, caused by US bombing.

Slobo is ending up MORE Popular now than before.
Because he's at a low point, and he has not backed down... instead, he fights on... and he is proving the idiots in the West wrong!!! And making them look foolish.

The trial is slowly fading. No one cares anymore. And I think now, MOST of the leaders of the world hope he gets off... because if he doesn't, it will be setting the stage for many indictments in the future INTERNATIONAL COURT!

imagine:

US GENERALS
CONGRESSMEN
SENATORS
PRIME MINISTERS

All going away to prison. Slobo has to get off because if he ends up being guilty, it will make all the leaders of the world ask: MAYBE WE'RE NEXT!

So this trial is a joke.

He is only making himself look better. The idiots dont realize this. That DE PONTE has made him a legend among many people now. ha ha ha

The Council of Europe has no legal right to interfere with internal matters of Serbia and Montenegro, especially not the matters of police or Yugoslav citizens.

The war crimes, as we know, are nothing but Nato propaganda, manufactured in order to justify the illegal aggression of Yugoslavia.

The current leaders of Serbia are nothing but traitors, and their eagerness to join EU or NATO is nothing but a proof that they are western lackeys.

Last year NATO charged that Yugoslav forces had massacred at least 10,000 people, but only after NATO spokespeople first tried to imply that 500,000, then 250,000, then 100,000 supposedly "missing" people had also been killed.

They used such claims to try to justify NATO bombings, that had in fact no basis under United Nations treaty laws, or, indeed, NATO's own charter.


NATO has now been forced to admit, in effect, that it waged a lying war of deliberate propaganda via the Western media, to win support for its own illegal intervention that is known to have killed over 3,000 Yugoslavian citizens, about one-third of them children.

Washington and NATO have not produced the slightest hard evidence that Yugoslav forces carried out even a small-scale massacre of civilians, let alone anything like the "genocide" which they were repeatedly charged with in the Western press and on TV news bulletins.

The ICTY - itself created and funded by the NATO powers - has now been forced to expose NATO's "Big Lie".

According to a report in the August 18 British Guardian, Mark Laity, the new acting NATO spokesperson, said: "NATO never said the missing were all dead. The figure we stood by was 10,000." Laity even protested, desperately trying to pretend that NATO's intervention had probably stopped further killing.

The truth is that NATO's bombing killed thousands of people, and drove many thousands more - Albanians as well as Serbs - from their homes. And, that only since NATO occupied Kosovo, right-wing Albanian forces have killed some 1,000 people, mostly Serb and Romany, while pushing those of all 23 other non-Albanian ethnic groups - (not one of which had any complaints when ruled from Belgrade ! - for almost a century !) - right out of the region.
