Kosovo the SNP and cowardice
At a time when the Serbians were slaughtering thousands in Europe the USA and "UK"
sat back and just watched.
Then came Kosovo, years later and after many atrocities. In marched the "UK" and
USA, finally stopping the slaughter.
But at what price? It seems our legacy to them is cancer caused by depleted
uranium weapons, a destroyed economy and a gloomy future. Saying 'well at least they're
alive' is disgraceful.
At a time where the USA and "UK" started LATE operations to curb the Serbs, after
tens of thousands had died, been raped and tortured, the OVERKILL approach
led to more casualties.
When US generals were saying on US television that air power alone could not
win the battle against the Serbs and when Alex Salmond had the guts to point out
that ground forces would be needed he was branded a coward by jingoistic flag waving
cowards who had let the matter of Serbia fester for years.
Alex Salmond was right. The others were wrong.
We may have a new Serbia now, but try telling that to the Bosnians, Croats, Albanians and
Kosovars who had to wait YEARS for Serbia to be brought to account by the same cowards
that had the nerve to make political mileage from Alex Salmonds stance.
