Lessons from Recent History
- Lessons from Recent History
Whilst conspiracy theories often are in the realms of fantasy, there
is a malignancy in anything that America and the Western nations
touches. Below we discuss Western culpability in Bosnia, Kosovo and
Iraq. It should be American and Western leaders who should be in the
Dock alongside their dispensable protégés like Sadam and Milosevic.
The greatest feat of the US and its cronies was the defeat of the
Soviets. This was done not with cloak and dagger work but through
playing to the vanities, ambitions and delusions of leaders at the
Kremlin. First, Gorbachev was relentlessly pursued and his weaknesses
exploited. He was toasted and feted and it was his vanity that
brought the Soviet system crashing. Wounded in Afghanistan, the
Russian bear was licking its wounds when Uncle Sam pounced.
Together with Margaret Thatcher Gorbachev was out manoeuvred as the
Western Media hyped him up to the extent that even Mikhail believed
in the Media campaign. Thatcher declared, Gorbachev was a man her
government could do business with. That is a kiss of death to anyone
conferred this status!
To complete Russian humiliation, the alcoholic taciturn Yeltsin gave
the coup de grace to the Russian bear shot right between the eyes.
Today Putin is given the role of the errand boy playing 'Cow boys n'
Indians' in his backyard in Chechnya and doing all asked of him by
Uncle Sam. The rest is history.
So, having outsmarted the cold war warrior, like the Uthmanian
Khaliphate before it, it was left to carve up the Soviets ready to be
apportioned and devoured at the victorious capitalist West's dinner
table. One thorn was the matter of Yugoslavia, the sole remaining if
nominal Socialist state.
During the heyday of the Communist era Tito did a balancing act
between the West and Russian dominated Soviet by polar power game.
With the collapse of the Soviet system under Gorbachev and its
carving up under Yeltsin, the planning began to remove this thorny
remnant the rump of socialist Yugoslavia that could give focus to the
In Slobodan Milosevic they had the perfect target. During the 1960's
and 1970's the West had established contact with discontent in
Yugoslavia in the anti communist Muslims of the Yugoslav Federation
and Ali Izetbeg was groomed by the US through the House of Saud to
rally the Muslims under his leadership. Just as Lech Walesa was made
the focus of the Solidarity Movement in Poland, knowing the
bitterness in relations of Yugoslav Muslims and the Christian
Catholic Croats and Orthodox Serbs, Izetbeg was centre stage in the
strategy to foment cession of Bosnia from the Yugoslav state.
Ali Izetbeg was given aid and help and his book between East and West
was published outside Yugoslavia by Saudi funding in the process to
wind up this remaining socialist state. Predictably, the Yugoslavs
responded as expected by clamping down on the Muslim dissidents in
the only way they knew how which was repression.
Under Milosevic they had a 'gift' of a man who war ruthless and after
the annexation of Kosovo the West meddled in Yugoslavia using Muslims
as the lever for its destruction. Like Saddam, who was given the
green light to invade Kuwait, Ali Izetbeg was given the impression of
Western backing for an independent Muslim majority Bosnian State. He
was offered promises of economic aid and political backing in bad
faith unlike that given to other states in the regions of the former
Soviets like Estonia Latvia during the same period.
Izetbeg was so convinced that he set in motion the collapse of the
Yugoslavia Federation and the genocide that followed from this.
Looking back, Uncle Sam was ecstatic in the strategy in which the
former was a mere marionette in America's games.
Izetbeg declared that he was confident that Bosnia would gain
independence and that his Bosnian Serb and Croat brothers would
accept and work to build a future Muslim majority nation. Whilst
Izetbeg was fed on a diet of lies, false promises and deceit, the
Croats and Serbs within Bosnia were also given hopes of their own
statehood. Knowing full well the historic animosities of all the
Yugoslav ethnic groupings it was a deliberate recipe for disaster.
As the blood letting began, the US far from assisting the Bosnian
Muslim Majority, it incited the Serbs and roused them to
nationalistic fervour. In this, Milosevic was a useful tool. From a
hard left Communist, Slobodan turned with the wind and became the
convert to Serb nationalism. All the while the US was whispering
sweet nothings in the Muslim leadership in Bosnia, they were fanning
the flames. Slobodan took the bait of a freehand against the Muslims
in both Bosnia and Kosovo. Like Saddam in his ambitions to annex
Kuwait, Slobodan was allowed to do his worst, and was expected to pay
the American 'Devil' his due with interest. He is now on trial!
The West turned a blind eye to the excesses of the Croats and Serbs,
and, Tudjman of the Croats and Slobodan began a process of Genocide
against the Muslims. Both ardent Nationalists worked out a scheme of
absorbing Bosnia into the respective Serbia and Croatian states. All
the while the Muslims were run rings around them through diplomats
like David Own who had no sympathy with the Muslim cause and actually
worked behind the scenes with the Tudjman/Milosevic project.
At its worst, the West imposed an arms embargo, ostensibly on both
sides when in reality the Serb dominated Yugoslav army was supplying
the Bosnian Serbs led by Karadzic. The Croats were also receiving
arms secretly from Europe. Thus effectively, the West allowed,
sanctioned and even initiated the Genocide as recent revelations
prove. The Muslims were left and even asked to lay down to have
their throats cut by both Serbs and Croats at the behest of the West.
Srebrenica only happened when the UN openly allowed the slaughter of
some 20,000 Muslims and the small UN contingent was asked to carry
the can. What was the reason for all this?
The Muslims were used to initiate a process of the dissolution of
Yugoslavia and once the process was set in motion, the West allowed
the Serbs and Croats their way in the slaughter of the innocents. The
last thing the West wanted was a Muslim majority state, let alone
allow a potential of an Islamic state within Europe. It suited the
West to cobble a tripartite state that was finally allowed to emerge
in Bosnia with a decimated Muslim community. Towards the end of the
debacle the West was worried at the successes on the battle field in
which the Muslim Mujahideen took part. Fearing this, the West imposed
the condition on the Bosnians of the repatriation of these Mujahideen
who may have posed a threat and the emergence of an Islamic state in
Europe in Bosnia.
As the recent Iraq occupation proves if proof was needed that the
West and the US in particular are adept at long term planning. Let us
not forget, like Milosevic, Saddam was given the WMD, allowed to use
such weapons against Iran and the Kurds and was encouraged to be
ruthless with opposition to his regime. Yet, now Saddam and his
henchmen will have to pay for American hand in supplying, promoting
and giving Saddam all the assets to use and to commit genocide. The
blood is on Western and American hands yet they portray themselves as
squeaky clean in both Bosnia and Iraq. So we get breast beating by
the West as mass graves are uncovered in Iraq and in Bosnia and
Kosovo and elsewhere. There atrocities were known to the West,
encouraged and allowed to occur by them yet its pathetic agents and
instruments of Western Machiavellian policy who are made as the
Like the old fashion Colonialism of Britain, America is the paramount
Imperialist in Iraq. We will see another Shah of Iraq just as we have
seen the Shah in Iran and Afghanistan to name a few Muslim nation
states (Not forgetting Shahs of the House of Saud whose throne is a
bit shaky as the Americans are looking for a replacement. The Saudis
are getting cocky like Saddam, and they don't take kindly to that.
There are already some applicants for the upcoming vacancy on the
Saudi throne, but beware it comes with the noose as the job can be
Having seen this strategy applied from Panama to the Philippines, one
wonders how Muslims have not yet cottoned on to the mischief
perpetrated against Muslims and other societies around the world. The
Europeans perfected this strategy before America took up the
Imperialist baton from them.
The West does not take kindly to failure to serve their interests by
a protégé. The penalty is death or disgrace. Even the Afghans have
learnt this bitter truth whether the Mujahideen or the Taliban, and
now Hamid Karzai the much touted Shah of Afghanistan.
