The World Is A Better Place

While some may rue that he was not found guilty at the court in the Hague the fact that the ‘Butcher of the Balkans’ Milosevic found dead in cell is probably the best outcome for all concerned because it prevents his being considered a martyr to the West.

Slobodan Milosevic was a lawyer, gas company executive, and party apparatchik who used nationalism and the media to murder hundreds of thousands of people in the name of a “Greater Serbia” that only existed in response to a desire by Aleksandr, Tsar of all the Russias, to glorify all things Slavic. Aleksandr paid to have bogus histories written that amplified the achievements of the Slavic people, and the fables he had created have been used as justification for “ethnic cleansing”.

Jack Cluth at The People’s Republic of Seabrook worked in the Balkans and saw what Milosevic did first-hand.

Milosevic’s rise to power shows how even a mediocre energy executive can rise to political power when the media is behind them and people are whipped into a frenzy with fear.
