WEESTERN AUSTRALIA, October 1999 - The following speech was delivered by the TiM editor to various audiences and/or press conferences Perth and Sydney, including at the University of Western Australia on Oct. 21, 1999:NATO's Kosovo War: A Gang Rape of a Small Nation
Kosovo vs. East Timor: Similarities and DifferencesColonizing the World by Bombs, Dollars
A Lecture by Bob Djurdjevic, Founder of the Truth in Media, Phoenix, Arizona -www.truthinmedia.org
Perth, Sydney, Australia - October 1999
Ladies and gentlemen, professors and students of the University of WA, distinguished guests, friends of the truth and liberty in this beautiful part of the land Down Under,
Thank you, for allowing me to share it with you for a while. And for inviting me to address this esteemed forum.
As I stand here before you, I am reminded of what happened many years ago, when the news that a telephone cable to Africa had been installed reached the British House of Commons. After all the hoopla, hat-tossing and cheering had subsided, Mr. Winston Churchill got up and said: "Excellent, excellent.... Now, what shall we TELL the Africans?"
Well, I don't know what the British parliamentarians ended up telling the Africans in their first phone call, but maybe I should start by telling you what I am planning to talk about today.
First, I will share with you some of my impressions about NATO's war on Serbia. Many of them - firsthand. Twice in the last six months, I traveled to that Balkan country. The first time, during NATO's bombing. And then again last month, when my wife and I toured eight Serbian cities ravaged by the war.
I will also try to put the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s in a context of global geopolitics, such as the globalization trend driven by the so-called New World Order elite. And I'll talk about how "The Princes of the 20th Century" - multinational companies whose interests the western politicians serve - are (re)colonizing the world using dollars as well as bombs.
Within that topic, I plan to address questions such as:
Finally, I'll share with you my views about what sort of a world we can expect if the Princes do succeed in realizing their agenda.
And how they may fall on their own sword in the end.
But first, I have to warn you. Some of the war images you're about to see are quite graphic and not suitable for the faint at heart.
Also, unless you're a full time "New World Order watcher," you may find some of my own conclusions rather disconcerting. That's because "at a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act," according to George Orwell.
Or as Thomas Gray noted in the 18th century, "where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise."
I'll chance it... [pause & smile]
After all, Arthur Schopenhauer observed that, "all truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third, it is accepted as self-evident."
So, you see, it's just a matter of time before we all agree. [smile]
[SHOW HEADER NO. 2 SLIDE]
Ladies and gentlemen, NATO's bombing of Serbia was nothing short of a gang rape of a small country.
A military alliance of 19 nations and 780 million people; with over half of the world's gross economic product (GNP), commanding two-thirds of the global military firepower, ganged up on a tiny nation of 10 million. For 79 days, NATO terrorized the people of Serbia, dropping 23,000 bombs and missiles on them in 36,000 sorties.
Yet the citizens and the army of Serbia remained unbowed and unkowed! This is not hearsay. I saw their defiance with my own eyes during the six days I had spent under NATO bombardment.
[SHOW KRAGUJEVAC "EXTRA PERIOD" + BABY TARGET]
As you can see here, tens of thousands of Kragujevac citizens did just that on March 31. They defiantly assembled for an "extra (school) period" at Sumarice, the site where the Nazis executed 7,000 Serb civilians in 1941, including several hundred school children.
[SHOW BELGRADE MOM, STROLLER, SERB KID PHOTOS]
And you can defiance written all over the face of this Belgrade Mom who had marked her children as targets for NATO bombers.
Or in this boy, wearing a Serb "sajkaca" cap with a double-eagle crest, and answering the NATO "Uebermenschen" ("supermen") with the Serb Orthodox three-finger salute.
[SHOW "TOUR DE SERBIA" MAP]
For that reason, at every stop of our recent "Tour de Serbia", I told the Serb people that it was my privilege to bow my head before them in admiration of their courage and love of freedom. And then I did it. [bowing]
But let us start at the beginning. March 24.
[SHOW TiM STATS SLIDE]
Even before the first bombs fell on Serbia, we put up at the Truth in Media Web site the first of, what turned out to be 106 special war editions of TiM GW Bulletins, numbering 480 articles, 597 pages, 199,000 words and 208 photographs.
And since the June 11 armistice, which we immediately called the "peace farce," we have added to our "Kosovo war memorial," another 45 editions, encompassing so far 196 articles, 336 pages, 101,000 words and 148 images.
[SHOW PHOTO 1 FROM PHX, Mar. 27]
That March 24 editorial ended with a slogan which was to reverberate around the U.S. and Internet world for the next 11 weeks: "Drop Clinton, Not Bombs!" Here it is, for example, being held by yours truly at the Phoenix anti-war rally on March 27.
In that first editorial, I said that March 24 will go down in history as the new Day of Infamy. Except that this time, American missiles and pilots were about to do to Serbia what the Japanese did to America at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
And worse... Because NATO was waging war on civilians.
When I traveled through Serbia in late April, I saw that this mighty military alliance was attacking old age homes, hospitals, schools, embassies, factories, churches, bridges, railroads, TV and radio stations...
Here are some of NATO targets:
[SHOW THE PHOTO - ALEKSINAC]
"A Yugoslav Town Bathed in Blood" read the headline of an Apr. 6 Associated Press report about the carnage in this small southeastern Serbian mining town of 17,000. At least five people died in this NATO strike, and 30 were injured. Three two-story homes were also flattened, the AP said. You're looking at them. Some bricks, wooden boards and roof tiles were tossed more than 500 feet away. Closer to the blast site, several nearby apartments caught fire.
In the town's center, a stone-throw away from this bombing site, nearly all shop windows were smashed. And even when we visited Aleksinac in mid-September, many of them had not been repaired due to shortage of glass.
[SHOW THE PHOTOS - LESKOVAC/GRDELICA]
In this Apr. 12 NATO bombing of a passenger train crossing a bridge near Grdelica, at least 10 people died and scores of others were hospitalized. But during our visit to Nis, my wife and I learned about one very personal tragedy associated with this NATO attack. A woman we met lost her husband on that train. Their two teenage daughters lost their father.
[SHOW THE PHOTO - STELA-NIS TV]
Stela Jovanovic is one of the most popular TV personalities in Nis, the third largest city in Serbia. She has won a number of awards for her documentaries. You can see her here with yours truly on the set of a Nis TV studio, just before the airing of an hour-long live talk show about the Truth in Media activities.
After the show, as we walked through downtown Nis, Stela told me how it happened .
Her husband was called up as a reservist. He was on his way to join his army unit when the train was struck. His body was never found. Stela said she had searched frantically through every car on that train wreck looking for him. All in vain. So he is now officially listed as "missing" by the Yugoslav Army.
Stela's younger, 16-year old daughter refuses to accept her Dad's death. She got quite cross with her Mom that evening when she dressed in black for our TV show. ("Black" is a color of mourning in Europe).
[SHOW THE PHOTO - NIS 1]
By the way, Nis was the most bombed out city in Serbia. And the first to be attacked by cluster bombs, designed to kill people, not blow up buildings. Here you can see one of them exploding in a residential neighborhood. I added the animation, of course.
There were 16 such cluster bomb attacks, which dropped an estimated 3,000 cluster bomblets on the city's population, killing 34 people and wounding hundreds of others. Overall, Nis was attacked by NATO 48 times in 40 days by about 300 projectiles. Some 4,000 Nis residential dwellings were damaged in the attacks.
[SHOW THE PHOTO - NIS 2]
Over 120 houses were totally destroyed, such as these homes in the Nis suburb Medosevac, which we photographed during our visit. This heap of rubble at which my wife is looking is all that was left of a private home which was once someone's pride and joy.
[SHOW THE PHOTO - NIS 3]
In addition, 234 Nis businesses were destroyed or damaged by NATO, 21 of them civilian factories, such as the Nis Tobacco plant (DIN) - left photo. Or "Energogas," a small company which bottled propane gas, also for civilian use. As a result, some 50,000 people in Nis are now out of work.
[SHOW THE PHOTO - NIS 4]
And even some animals became NATO victims, such as the German shepherd who had his head severed from the rest of the body by a bomb. Or that white horse on the right.
Here's what a Surdulica residential neighborhood look like after NATO's strike on Apr. 28.
A sports arena in Cuprija which I personally photographed last month. And a residential area in the same town, struck on May 29.
[KRAGUJEVAC - Apr/99]
Take a look at the "Home of the Yugo" after the NATO strike in early April. This was once Eastern Europe's most successful car exporter - the "Zastava" factory in Kragujevac,
[KRAGUJEVAC - Sep/99]
And this is a photo I took from inside the same factory on Sept. 14.
As a result of this NATO bombing, 36,000 people are now out of work,. And "Zastava's" main competitor, a NATO country's (Czech) "Skoda," has picked up most of the Serb car maker's market share.
[BELGRADE - PHOTO 1]
Here's downtown Belgrade in flames That day, Apr. 3, I wrote: "Today, parenthesis have dropped off the 'Adolf Clinton' sign."
[BELGRADE - PHOTO 2]
Yet the next day, NATO widened its bombing of the Serb capital, hitting a heating plant in New Belgrade and other civilian targets.
This is a photo of a huge toxic cloud which I took from my hotel room in Belgrade in late April. [pause]
Ladies and gentlemen, some of these images were being posted at the Truth in Media Web site practically instantly after the bombings took place.
And some of the TiM Bulletins were typed "live," and transmitted around the world via the Internet, literally as bombs were falling around the building in which I was writing them.
As a result of such dramatic reports, the TiM Web site was visited by millions of people across the U.S. and from over 100 countries around the world. In May, it was voted No. 33 by popularity among the over 40 million Web sites on the Net.
[SHOW T-SHIRT SLOGAN]
So as you can see, "Truth CAN be addictive!" - as the TiM T-shirt slogan also says. [smile] But so can be the Big Brother's "lie and deny" propaganda. In a TiM Bulletin published on Apr. 3, we wrote:
"Remember the Big Brother's slogans?
"War is peace"
"Freedom is slavery"
"Ignorance is strength"
We are living them now. Orwell was off by 15 years. Consider today's NWO's (Kosovo) reality:
"Naked aggression" is "humanitarian mission"
"Killing innocent people" is "saving lives"
"Peacekeepers" are "warmongers"
"Free press" is "war propaganda"
And what about all those Serb atrocities you've been seeing in CNN, ABC, BBC, SKY or other establishment media reports?
[CNN "WAG THE DOG" SCENARIOS]
Hm You mean the well clips from "Wag the Dog"-movie? Such as this photo cartoon, which we published on Apr. 8.
An exaggeration? Well consider the following "clip" from real life.
After my evening lecture in the Serb town of Valjevo on Sept. 14, I gave a bunch of interviews to various Serb TV channels, both state-owned and the opposition-run. After one of them, a young female reporter shared her own Kosovo story with me.
"When I was reporting from Kosovo, we were all a part of a large media pool," she said. "So I had a chance to observe how CNN, for example, works. CNN doesn't report the news. It creates the news. I saw with my own eyes a CNN reporter literally reading from the teleprompter the news which his Atlanta editors had written."
[SHOW THE MAY 1 - PHOTO 1]
Besides helping debunk such CNN "news" stories, the Internet was also a powerful anti-war weapon which helped move the truth and freedom-loving people into action. Twice in the last five weeks of the war, I traveled to America's capital to speak out against NATO's war at the Washington demonstrations.
[SHOW THE MAY 1 - PHOTO 2]
The first time, I did it at the Ellipse, just back of the White House south lawn, on May 1, right after I had returned from the bombed-out Serbia.
[SHOW THE PHOTO OF THE SPEAKER - 1]
The second time I went to Washington on June 5, when I addressed tens of thousands of anti-NATO protesters at the Vietnam Memorial.
It was by far the largest anti-war protest in America since the days of the Vietnam war. They came to Washington from all over - Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, Alabama, and yes, even from Phoenix, Arizona, over 2,000 miles away.
[SHOW THE PHOTO OF MARCHERS - 2]
After the speeches at the Vietnam Memorial, a crowd of some 30,000 people, a human column 20 to 30 abreast and over a mile long, marched on the Pentagon, across the Potomac river.

Tens of thousands of Americans stood shoulder-to-shoulder that day, and shouted a thundering "NO!" to Clinton's war on Serbia.
Later on that evening, I wrote the following words in my hotel room and broadcast them around the world via the Internet:

Of course, similar anti-war protests were held all around the world. Including here, in Australia.
[SHOW THE PERTH PHOTO]
Here is, for example, one of the images which we posted at the TiM Web site about the May 15 anti-war rally in Perth
Meanwhile, back in Serbia, the "Clinton Doctrine" was progressing full steam ahead. What's the "Clinton Doctrine?"
[SHOW ADOLF CLINTON PHOTO]
As Col. David Hackworth put it, America's most decorated living soldier, now a nationally syndicated columnist and a best-selling author, whom I have the privilege to count among my friends, the "Clinton Doctrine" is:
"Bomb the civilians and the civilian structures until that country's military can't stand to watch it anymore."
Ladies and gentleman, that was not war. That was terrorism!
In the wake of such NATO bombings, about 2,000 civilians were killed - more than three times the number of casualties which the Yugoslav army had suffered during the war. Some 30% of the victims were children.
[SHOW BOJANA PHOTO]

[SHOW VARVARIN PHOTO]
Like Father Milivoj Ceric, a brave and unselfish Serb priest, whose head was literally blown off by a NATO bomb on Sunday, May 30.
And what was Fr. Ceric doing at the time of his death? God's work. Right after his Sunday church service, he rushed to help his injured parishioners after the first NATO strike on the Varvarin bridge. Only to be killed by the second one. As America celebrated the Memorial Day weekend... [pause]
Ladies and gentlemen, Clinton was not waging war on Milosevic. He was waging war on Serb civilians. A cowardly war. The only kind of a war, I suppose, draft-dodgers know how to wage.
"Are we going to stand by idly and let our Draftdodger-in-Chief carry on such slaughter - in our name, under our flag?" I asked the Washington protesters at the Vietnam Memorial on June 5.
"Noooo !" roared back a thunderous response from thousands of throats.
So "Let's Drop Clinton, Not Bombs!", I proposed.
Again to a loud approval of the large crowd. [pause]
I also told the American people about some human tragedies I came across during my April trip to Serbia which never get reported in the media - Serb, American, or Australian. Like that of the four-year old Mina.
A Serb doctor treating this little girl told me that her four-year old patient was losing her hair. From the constant trauma caused by air raid sirens and bombs. Asked by the doctor what she feared more - the sirens or the bombs - the little girl said the dreaded the sirens more.
And now, YOU will have a chance to find out why. What you're about to hear is no Hollywood soundstage product. It is a live recording of an air raid siren made on a Belgrade balcony in late April...
[SHOW BELGRADE AIR RAID IMAGE]
(ALSO, PLAY THE TAPE)
What usually followed this sound was the roar of anti-aircraft artillery fire... Such as these "Belgrade by night" images depict
[SHOW BELGRADE ANTI-AIRCRAFT PHOTO]
And then, the sound of bombs...
Here's a recording of one missile which whizzed over downtown Belgrade on May 19 before crashing into the "Dragisa Misovic" hospital in the posh suburb of Dedinje:
(PLAY THE TAPE) [SHOW HOSPITAL PHOTOS]
What came next usually was the sound of the fire truck and ambulance sirens. And then, the silence of the dead.
Now, imagine having to live through that day in and day out, mostly at night, but sometimes also in daytime hours - such as when I was meeting with the Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church, for example. Imagine that, and then you may understand why a four-year old girl was losing her hair. And why 10 million civilians have been traumatized by NATO, not just those already killed or maimed.
Which is why in my May 1 speech at the White House I said that we must charge all NATO leaders responsible for such barbaric acts with war crimes.
[SHOW WHITE HOUSE SPEECH - ANIMATED]
[pause to allow for laser animation to take effect]
This is a Washington Times May 2 report about that speech.
On May 11, I called on the Truth in Media readers around the world to file their personal "home-made" complaints against all 70+ of the NATO war criminals and send them to the Hague. The same day, May 11, I personally filed such a complaint.
[SHOW MADAM KANGAROO CARTOON]
Ten days later, on May 21, Madam Kangaroo of the Hague, my nickname for the Canadian judge, Louise Arbour, complained to reporters in Fredericton, Canada, that the War Crimes Tribunal had been "seized by many complaints urging us to charge the entire NATO leadership with genocide..." Imagine that [smile]
But while such politicized judges balked, TiM readers around the world wrote to us saying they were outraged by NATO's war crimes. Some Americans said they were ashamed of being American. Others said they wanted to volunteer to go and help Serbia.
So if Clinton didn't have the support of the American people, why in God's name did he bomb the Serbs? And on whose behalf?
Well, I have been saying for years the real motto of the New World Order globalists is not "world peace through world trade," as its leaders claim. It is "perpetual commerce through perpetual war."
First you knock them down; then you build them up. Either way, America's "death merchants" and their industrial and media partners-in-crime win. Serbia is just the latest case in point.
Bottom line? War is good business. Always has been. Always will be.
Just ask the CEOs of Lockheed, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman, United Technologies, Textron, Litton Industries and other top Pentagon suppliers whose shares soared as mankind's stock dropped.

The shares of the top 10 Pentagon suppliers outperformed the rest of the bullish stockmarket (S&P 500) by a 2.5-to-1 ratio during the first 60 days of the war.
[SHOW THE "HUMANITARIAN MISSION" CARTOON]
Furthermore, this NATO "humanitarian mission" by the "Princes" of the New World Order was a case of premeditated mass murder. It had little to do with what Slobodan Milosevic did or did not do.
Would it surprise you to learn, for example, that the Clinton administration requested an additional $112 billion for the Pentagon budget in February of this year - almost six weeks before the NATO bombing started?
[SHOW THE PENTAGON SPENDING CHART]
Would it surprise you to learn that last year's Pentagon spending on the arms was "only" $44 billion - the lowest level in more than a decade? (see the blue arrow)
Would it surprise you to learn that, following the NATO war on Serbia, the spending will go up to $60 billion next year, for a total Pentagon budget of $319 billion in year 2005?
Would it surprise you to learn that the U.S. Defense Secretary, William Cohen, used an evaluation meeting of the war against Yugoslavia, held by the 19 NATO defense ministers in Toronto, Canada, on Sept. 21-22, to bully the European allies into buying more precision-guided weapons and other high-tech systems? From the American "death merchants," of course.
Ladies and gentlemen, as I said in a January column in the Australian "New Dawn" magazine, the "Kosovo problem" was a product of the Washington Crisis Factory.
Kosovo was just the latest example of an evil, genocidal, parasitic, Machiavellian military-industrial-financial complex enriching itself on the backs of other fellow-humans' pain and suffering.
Not that long ago, in 1983, President Reagan justifiably called the Soviet Union an Evil Empire. In both of my Washington speeches I said that now, Washington is the seat of an Evil Empire and Belgrade was the capital of the Free World!
In another TiM Bulletin from last February, also carried by the "New Dawn" magazine, I said that if Winston Churchill were to deliver his famous "Iron Curtain" speech today, he might say:
[SHOW THE "IRON CURTAIN" MAP]
From Belfast on the Irish Sea, to Trieste in the Adriatic; to Budapest on the Danube - an iron curtain has descended across the Continent."
Keep in mind that both articles and the map were published well BEFORE NATO's attack on Serbia.
How could we have known that? Because geopolitical strategic interests which guide the actions of the New World Order imperialists are slow to change.
[SHOW U.S. GLOBAL STRATEGIC POSITION MAP]
Take a look at this map. We designed it and published it in November 1995. Yet four years later, everything on it is as up-to-date and accurate as it was back then.
The "green" countries are considered U.S. allies; the "yellow" ones are American vassals; the "orange" and "pink" are potential enemies (Russia and China). The "white" ones are the countries of low or no strategic geopolitical importance. And the "red" ones, which include Serbia, are considered adversaries.
Five months before that, in April of 1995, the Truth in Media published an article about Russia's strategic position.
[SHOW THE RUSSIAN BEAR SLIDE]
We said that Russia is still the New World Order's Bogey No. 1 despite all the supposed sweet talk from Washington. We asserted that the so-called "Partnership for Peace" was nothing more than a more perfidious version of the old western "Drang Nach Osten." And that the former Soviet dominions in Eastern Europe have now all become western minions, having been conquered by dollars, not bombs. The subservient behavior of ALL Serbia's neighbors during NATO's war, for example, attested to their vassal position.
[SHOW THREE IRON RINGS AROUND RUSSIA MAP]
In a May 9, 1997 Washington Times column, I also said that the anti-Russian strategy of the NWO architects has three prongs:
And where does Serbia fit in all of this? Well, it is the only non-vassal nation left in all of Europe. Which is why it is also a "red" dot.
[SHOW "GREEN INTERSTATE" MAP]
Plus the country lies right on top of a key geopolitical fault line which runs from Asia to Europe. As I said in a November 1995 Arizona Republic article, and again in an October 1998 Washington Times column:
Ladies and gentlemen, some of you may be seeing these charts for the first time, even though these geopolitical analyses were formulated 4-5 years ago, when I first predicted that Kosovo would become "Bosnia II."
But Serbian leaders have no such excuse. I have personally briefed about this most of the key political, military, academic (SANU) and even church leaders. And although I have not met with Milosevic since February 1992, I know that some of his people have also tried to make him see the light.
And yet here we are, Serbia is once again facing a dead end, only poorer than before. And minus several thousand of its citizens killed by NATO.
During my recent trip to Serbia I could see that "everybody" these days is calling for Milosevic's resignation. Far be it for me to defend the man whom I publicly denounced as early as August 1990, at the time when he objectively enjoyed about a 90% support by the Serb electorate. But before the Serbian people decide when and how it is time for Milosevic to go, they must consider alternatives. To this end, it is instructive to look at the experiences of other NWO vassal nations which took Washington's advice on how to implement economic reform and democracy.
Colonizing Eastern Europe
Look at Russia, for example. In a Special Report, titled "Killing Russia Softly," published after my visit to that country in the spring of 1997
[SHOW RSD PHOTOS AT THE KREMLIN, SERGEYEV POSSAD]
we pointed out that the life expectancy of an average Russian male has dropped from 65 to 57.7 years between 1987 and 1995. And that the Russian women's have had their life span shortened by three years - from 74 years to 71 years.
[SHOW THE CHART]
Ladies and gentlemen, that puts Russia at the level of Afghanistan and some of the poorest African countries! And it is a direct result of the kinds of the western economic "reforms" which destroyed Russia's health care system. [pause]
In addition, with the help of the local quislings, the West has literally plundered Russia, transferring hundreds of billions of dollars of her assets into foreign bank accounts.
[SHOW THE PHOTO OF RSD - SEPT 18/99]
I was back in Moscow last month. And I can tell you things have only gone from bad to worse in the last two and a half years. The Russian currency, for example, which traded between 5-6 rubles to the dollar back in 1997, now stands at 25-26 rubles to the dollar. Which means that all imports are now five times more expensive. And that the Russian standard of living has sunk even deeper than it was two and a half years ago. [pause]
And just this Monday (Oct. 25), Prof. Murray Feshbach of Washington's Georgetown University, predicted that falling birth rates coupled with an alarming rise in diseases like tuberculosis, AIDS, syphilis, etc. could cut Russia's population by more than a third by the year 2050.
Russia's population could fall to between 80 and 100 million, from the current level of 146 million, he said.
Ladies and gentlemen, Yeltsin and his western-style "reforms" are killing more Russians than did Lenin or Stalin! [pause]In short, the New World Order Princes' version of "democracy", "reforms" and "free trade" boils down to a license to cheat, steal and kill!
[SHOW THE PHOTO OF YOUNG GIRL-BEGGAR]
Take a look at this photo, for example, taken in Moscow in September of 1998. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this is the picture of the NWO "democracy" and "reforms". A little girl forced to beg for a piece of bread. [pause]
"And tomorrow, this could be your daughter, if the Clinton vassals come to power," I told the people of Serbia.
[SHOW THE PHOTO OF MOSCOW GARBAGE CAN]
No wonder that this is what average Russians think of such "democracy." This photo was taken during my visit to Russia in 1997. The sign on the garbage container reads, "Democracy here."
American and Australian "Demo Farces"
As for the state of democracy in America, it has evolved into an "American Demo Farce," as I said in my November 1996 Washington Times column. Take a look at the two presidential candidates the 1996 elections:
[AYATOLLAH KLINTONMEINI AND BOB "KOSOVAR" DOLE]
Both frontrunners, the "Ayatollah Klintonmeini" and the "Kosovar Dole," were horses racing for the same stable owner - the "Princes." That's why Washington politicians, the high priests of the New World Order, wear turbans, fez's or yarmulkas. Whatever suits their Big Business bosses' interests at any given moment. Just not the Serb "sajkace." [smile]
Which is why both Republicans and Democrats sound exactly alike when it comes to foreign policy. And they always unite against political challengers who espouse patriotism, home spun values, America first-type issues. Such as Pat Buchanan, for example, whom they cheated out of electoral victory in 1996.
At both of my Washington speeches - at the White House and at the Vietnam Memorial, I told the crowds:
"This is no longer a government 'OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people.' This is a government OF and FOR a group of bankers, 'death merchants' and other industrialists, run BY corrupt politicians, like Bill Clinton. And it is a government AGAINST the interests of the American people."
Nor is the "Demo Farce" some sort of a quirky, isolated American phenomenon.
Take a look at the two NWO "frontrunners" in the land Down Under - John Howard and Kim Beazley. I happened to be also here last October, during your federal elections. About the only thing different from the goring of Buchanan in the States was the sex of the piece of patriot meat which the Aussie NWO high priests threw on the national electoral "barbie".
Down here, they made minced meat out of Hanson. And just as in the U.S., supposed political adversaries - Liberals and Labor - UNITED in skewering Hanson.
And again just as in Washington, they don't differ much when it comes to crucial foreign policy issues.
When last month Boy Clinton called on Boy Howard to pay his dues to the NWO Princes, and asked him to put 4,500 Australian lives at risk in East Timor, did Boy Beazley object?
No Sirree Not that I've heard. Beazley backed Howard on East Timor. Just as Boy Dole, Boy McCain and other Republican leaders supported Clinton on Bosnia and Kosovo.
And what Australian national interests does the East Timor neo-colonial intervention serve?
Of course, the answers are no, no, no, no and no!
And it is certainly NOT in the Australian national interest to have its soldiers killed while defending the pocketbooks of the NWO Princes, rather than the security of their own country!
Especially not after Washington had been training for years the worst of the Indonesian death squads in the "art" of butchering people, according to a Sept. 19 London Observer story. And after Britain had pitched in with £1 million to help the Indonesian army.
So what does that tell you about Boy Beazley and Boy Howard? That they attended the same NWO boy scout camp, as did Boy Clinton, Boy Dole, Madam Halfbright, Boy Blair, Garson Chretien, Schroederkind, Lady Thatchpatch, Garson Chirac, etc.? Most likely at some posh Bilderbergers, CFR or Trilateralist resort.
Ladies and gentlemen, it seems to me that you have in this country the same type of an un-Australian plutocratic parasitic clique riding herd on Australian taxpayers, as we do in the States. Only worse For, Australia's "Demo Farce" is not even a domestic product. [pause & smile]
Kosovo vs. East Timor
Which brings us to the question of similarities and differences between Kosovo and East Timor: "Why did the Princes, go to war over Kosovo but not East Timor?"
One answer is, because they didn't have to. Washington sent Australians and other vassals to do its bidding.
But to me, an even more important question is: "Why did the Princes bomb Serbia and not Indonesia?" After all, both regimes were accused of committing atrocities.
The simple answer is, because Serbia is expendable; Indonesia is not.
Serbia is a small, predominantly Christian country, isolated in the heart of Europe and surrounded by enemies and NWO vassals.
Indonesia is a vast, oil-rich country, whose 17,000 islands are home to the world's biggest Muslim population.
Killing and alienating Serbs would not jeopardize strategic U.S. interests elsewhere in the world, as the Kosovo War has proven.
Bombing Indonesia could provoke backlash throughout the world, putting at risk strategic interests of the Princes not only in Indonesia, but elsewhere in the Muslim countries, such as in the Middle East.
In Kosovo, atrocities were staged or invented and blamed on the Serbs in real life "Wag the Dog" scenarios. That became clear lately by an absence of alleged "mass graves" after the KFOR takeover.
In East Timor, atrocities were real and were carried out over a period of 14 years by U.S. trained butchers.
The Princes had no leverage in Serbia, the only non-vassal country in Europe whose economy had already been devastated before NATO's bombing by years of genocidal sanctions. Which means the NWO multinationals had zero capital at risk. But they also had zero leverage in pulling the political strings in Belgrade. Which is why they resorted to bombs, rather than loans.
In Indonesia, a country in which they have invested tens of billions of dollars in the 1990s alone, the Princes had plenty of leverage. Especially after the $69 billion IMF bailout package.
Which is, by the way, another example of New World Order's "Socialism International." Why "Socialism International?" Because global taxpayers' money - the IMF - is being used to bail out Wall Street Princes out of bad investments they had made in Indonesia.
Occupying East Timor without having to bomb Indonesia only goes to prove that "free trade" and "globalism" means that nations can be colonized by dollars as effectively as with bombs.
In my Washington Times column "An Ugly Double Standard in Kosovo Conflict," published on Oct. 25, 1998 - yes a year ago - I said:
"The U.S./NATO never bombed Turkey over its atrocities against the Kurds; or China over Tibet; or Indonesia over East Timor; or Israel over its various even extra-territorial military assaults on neighboring countries; or Russia over Chechnya; or Great Britain over Northern Ireland; or Spain over its treatment of the Basques."
But it did bomb Iraq when Washington lost its leverage in Baghdad, despite having supported Saddam Hussein, both militarily and financially during Iraq's war with Iran.
And it did bomb Libya, when the U.S. lost its leverage with Mouamar Qaddafi, one of the sponsors of Islamic terrorism.
And it did bomb Afghanistan and Sudan, also expendable countries by the Princes' standards.
So the essence of the NWO globalists' neo-colonial strategy is: "Bomb obstinate weak nations, buy off obstinate big ones. Then rule the world." [pause]
Toward a New World Order
Maybe. For, as Niccolo Machiavelli warned in his book, "Prince", written in 1513: "There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than a creation of a new order of things."
But power-hungry, would-be rulers of the world - from Genghis Khan, to Attila the Hun, to Napoleon, to the British Empire, to Hitler's Third Reich rarely pay attention to the words of the wise, or bother to learn from history. Which is why they tend to repeat it. Usually at their own peril.
The same will be eventually the case with the latest edition of the New World Order. As we have seen, the West Side Gang delivers same kind of "gun diplomacy" which the East Side Gang had used, only using bigger guns and more perfidy to mask the western Prince's grab for power.
Toward a New World Order
And what are the Princes' ultimate objectives? Not unlike those of communists. Both love faceless uniformity and blind loyalty. Both loathe any living creature which is proud of its unique looks, language, religion or culture.
So if God were to (re)create the world by the designs of the NWO Princes, there would be only three kinds of creatures around:
All two legged-creatures would be ostriches; [smile]
All four legged-ones would be sheep; [smile}
All sea-living creatures would be sardines, anxiously waiting in long lines at the nearest Princes' canning factory docks to jump into cans, and be exported to some distant low-cal, low-brow; low-IQ, but immensely happy NWO society. [smile]
Now, I can see how this New World Order "menage à trois" could seem appealing to some Australian sheep farmers. But only if they behaved like their livestock. [smile]
Meanwhile, Australians who do not wish to stoop to the sheep level, may wonder, for example, why it is unlawful in Western Australia to kill a poisonous snake, but it was okay for the Australian government to support NATO's murder of 2,000 Serb humans? Including many children. Like, Bojana, Dejana and Stefan.
And even if some people don't care about a bunch of distant Serbs being killed, where were the Australian animal lovers when NATO decapitated that German shepherd, or disemboweled that white horse you saw earlier? Or when it terrorized the wild animals at the Belgrade zoo?
Guess ostriches, sheep or sardines wouldn't get too exercised over dichotomies like that, either. Nor about the fact the Australian government generously hosted Kosovo Albanians, but turned its back on over 180,000 Serb refugees from Kosovo, "ethnically cleansed" after the KFOR "peace farce" commenced. Not to mention over 600,000 Serb refugees who had been driven from their homes during the NWO "humanitarian missions" in Bosnia and Croatia.
Of course, things could get worse, too
The next UN Security Council resolution might authorize a new "peacekeeping" force - let's call it the United Nations Save the Ostrich Sheep and Sardines force - or UNSOSS. Or UN-SAUCE, if you prefer. [smile] Its job - to "ethnically cleanse" or physically eliminate all other creatures. [smile]
Of course, the designated victims would be first sedated with ample quantities of "panem et circenses" ("bread and games"). Just as the crumbling Rome offered its doomed citizens. Except that the UNSOSS would feed them McDonald's hamburgers and Coke instead of gladiator patties. [smile]
Naturally, the Princes and the high priests of the globalist ideology, would be exempt from such a low-cal, high-hype, low-IQ, high-brow diet. Just as the rulers of the decaying Rome were. [pause]
Finally, a separate UN Security Council resolution would compact all world religions into one. Its creed: "I believe in nothing!" Its symbol: The Almighty Dollar. Its object of worship: The Golden Calf. Its holy shrine: Wall Street. [pause]
I said at the outset that you may find some of my conclusions disconcerting. But is there still hope for the unsedated citizens of the world?
Yes, there is. In fact, the arrogant, yet short-sighted, global industrialists may have invented the tools of their own destruction.
[BEWARE OF PREMATURE VICTORY PARADES SLIDE]
The self-proclaimed Cold War winners should beware of premature victory parades.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in the midst of a revolution - an information technology revolution, a revolution no less dramatic than the invention of gun powder.
In an article, "Move over Einstein, Signor Da Vinci Is Back," published in July 1997 in the FORBES magazine's on-line edition, I said:
"The Internet and the PC - two post-industrial era technological revolutions - are returning Homo Sapiens back to nature. It's the beginning of 'Renaissance II'."
The ubiquitous PC and the Internet have empowered individuals and small companies to compete with giant enterprises on a level playing field. They've become equalizers. Kind of like the invention of gun powder enabled a little old lady to overpower a big hooligan.
The result is a massive transfer of wealth from industrial incumbents to information technology challengers.
Bill Gates, by far the richest man in America, is today much wealthier than the IBM CEO. Yet 20 years ago, he was a nobody. Similar opportunities exist today for small nations with talented people engaged in the field of information technology.
The industrial era automated the simplest (physical) forms of life; called them SCIENCES; held them in high esteem; and rewarded handsomely its apostles, such as Albert Einstein. It also put down the more complex forms of life - the ARTS.
Now, with the advent of PC's and the Internet, a (re)fusion of arts and sciences is taking place
Leonardo da Vinci would have been pleased
Picture a CNN reporter sticking a microphone in front of Signor da Vinci, and asking him: "Sir, do you consider yourself an artist or a scientist?"
What do you think the great Renaissance man's answer would have been? [ask for show of hands]
"Son, I haven't the foggiest idea what you're talking about. What is the difference between artists and scientists?," would be my guess.
So, as you can see, there's hope for graduates of liberal arts colleges and university after all. [smile]
And I am especially pleased to be able to make that proclamation in an Arts Department of a renowned university. [smile].
[THE BG FRANCUSKA 7 POSTER + DA VINCI IMAGE]
One of the greatest tributes for me personally was when I, an engineer by academic degree, was being elected an honorary member of the Serbian Writers Guild last month in Belgrade, and presented the membership card No. 3.
Here are some mementos from that evening
Fancy that an engineer turned a scribe and public speaker! Surprised? I was. Yet I have a feeling that Signor da Vinci would have found that perfectly logical. [smile]
To summarize, NATO's war on Serbia was nothing short of a gang rape of a small nation.
Australian intervention in East Timor shows that your government is as un-Australian as ours is un-American. And that countries can be colonized by dollars as well as bombs.
If the New World Order Princes had their way, the world would consist only of ostriches, sheep and sardines.
But the future is not as bleak despite such a gloomy present picture. The PC and the Internet are combining to help Homo Sapiens liberate himself from the shackles of the Princes.
And what about the crimes the Princes have already committed?
As I said to the American crowds in Washington, even if Clinton somehow dodges a war crimes trial, as he had dodged the military service to his country - he, his Secretary of Hate, Madam Halfbright, and all other NATO leaders will still face a trial, sooner or later, in a higher court.
"Don't be afraid of anything but sin," the Serb Patriarch Pavle once told me, as he asked me to pass this message to the faithful among the Serbian-Americans. For, in the end, he said, God "will weigh everything precisely and fairly."
Including the sins of our Draftdodger-in-Chief! And now a mass murderer, too!
So I say, "Drop Clinton, Not Bombs!"
And I say, "Kosovo is Serbia!" Always has been. Always will be. Even if it takes another 500 years to win it back from the Evil Empire, as it did from the Ottoman Empire.
[PRINCE LAZAR ANSWERING GOD'S QUESTION]For, as Prince Lazar replied to God's question about which kingdom he would choose - earthly or heavenly:
Prince Lazar did perish physically from his earthly kingdom in the Battle of Kosovo. But as you also saw earlier, his noble and defiant spirit still lives on in the Serbian nation 610 years later. And it will forever
Thank you. And now, I'll be pleased to take some questions.
The preceding were the prepared remarks. The actual speeches may have varied slightly from them.
