Remember the Trail of Tears?
3. Serb Black Humor Thrives Even Under Bombs: Tourists Welcome!
1. TiM Editor at St. Sava's Cathedral in New
NEW YORK, Apr. 29 - The TiM editor addressed this evening a packed church hall of the
St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in New York City. The topic, of course, was NATO's war
on Serbia, and your editor's recent trip there. After about a 10-minute speech, the TiM
editor spent almost an hour-and-a-half answering questions from the audience, mostly
Serbian-Americans from the tristate area.
In his opening remarks, the TiM editor noted an irony. "As it turns out, I came to
this church hall gathering directly from a meeting in the New York Stock Exchange
boardroom; the heart of the New World Order, and the hallowed shrine of the object of its
worship - the Almighty Dollar. The thought put a big grin on my face as I was making this
trip - from the hall of the NOW's Golden Calf, to this house of God. I knew I was moving
up (town - literally!) in this world, and am very happy to be here."
During the question and answer period, the topics ranged from the geopolitical reasons
for NATO's aggression; to human interest aspects of this war, such as the effect of NATO's
bombing on ordinary people and ecology in the Balkans.
2. An American Indian's View of "Ethnic
Cleansing:" Remember the Trail of Tears?
PHOENIX, Apr. 28 - Since the start of NATO's war on Serbia, we've received several
comments from Native Americans - the American Indians - who saw in it a renewal of a gripe
of their own. Here is an excerpt from one letter which we've selected for publication:
"Hypocritical - is possibly the word best suited for the
American role in the aggressions against the Nation of Yugoslavia. All (alleged Serb
'crimes')- the justifications rendered by the Clinton Administration for this aggression -
have been and continue to be perpetrated by the United States Government against its own
Since the earliest beginning of the United States Government it
has sought to eradicate or assimilate the ethic people of the continent it occupies. Germ
warfare, massacre of women, children and the elderly, forced removal from Homelands, and
sequestering in desolate environments have been U.S. policy.
The removal of ethnic Albanians is played up by the Americans,
forgetting that it was the United States Government who ordered the forced removal from
the southeastern part of the American continent of the Five Civilized Nations in what was
later to be called The Trail of Tears. American Indian People forced from their homes with
little more than they could carry in their arms. Forced westward marches with the dead and
dying left on the side of the trails. Execution of any who sought to remain or escape. It
should be further noted that these Nations were guaranteed by Treaty with the United
States Government that their removal would be to lands that would forever be sovereign
Indian lands. This held true only until the greed of the American s found need for this
The Nations of the world stand by in fear, as if frightened by a
large serpent and the threat of its fangs, as the American aggressions continue,
forgetting that in time even they will be challenged to withdraw their sovereign rights or
Just as the Roman, Spanish, and British Empires before it, the
United States Empire has grown in military and monetary strengths to the point that it has
placed itself in the position of making the Nations of the World it s subjects. All the
Empires before it continued to consume the rights of others until enough courage was borne
in them to stand up to the aggressions. Even the American Empire had its beginning by
standing against what was then the greatest Empire in the World. And Its victory was only
achieved only with the aid of others tired of that Empire.
The United States policies of forcing Nations to adhere to her
rule have only served to tear down and weaken those Nations who have succumbed to it.
Financial crisis, increased organized crime and overall discontent have been the only
blessings the populations of these Nations have seen as a result of adapting to American
The United States Government conceals its aggressions under the
cloak of words like World Peace and Human Rights. It is past time for the Nations of the
World to realize this deception. It is time for the International Community to follow the
lead of the courageous little Nation of Yugoslavia and say the line is drawn here! And to
stand in support of this proud Nation.
The time has come for the International Community to begin
demands that the American Government practice what it dictates to others in Its own lands
before meddling in the affairs of other sovereign Nations. And time for those American
Indians who wear the uniform of those who slaughtered their own Ancestors to cease aiding
in these aggressions and instead stand up for the rights of their own People. Time for all
those facing the intimidation of the American lead aggressions to stand together in
opposition to it. All must keep in mind that even the school yard bully becomes meek when
faced with a group of those he torments."
