Below is an early email I received from a reader named Theodore, who served almost three decades in the U.S. Navy. It is from September 2006, and is followed by his more recent email to me last week.

Thank you for your continual education of what “The Kosovo War” was/is really about. The Serbs were/are still wronged - and worst of all the world refuses to look into the situation or that the true travesty is that the islamic-fascists have benefited from it. Thanks to Bill and Monica! At that time I was a member of the US Armed Forces so did my duty and participated in that “war”. Having learned the truth - partly through your writings - I am ashamed of the medals awarded for that (and almost wish to throw them away - preferably at Bill Clinton). One of the medals was nicknamed the “Girl Scout Medal” as it is green and yellow and named ambiguously (like all the wishy-washy Clinton-era things were ): the “Armed Forces Service Medal”, which to those of “old-school” means nothing as we serve(d) with pleasure and pride and need(ed) no medal for this. Another of the Clintonistas’ lame attempts to placate our military…

Email from last Thursday:

I was debating on removing the medals awarded for actions in the “K.C.” [Kosovo Campaign] from my (now retired) uniform. When Kosovo was stolen - a few weeks ago - that did it. I took a step - meaningless to 99.999% of people - as these have no idea of the significance of such medals/military traditions.

It was/is very difficult to do this - even though the medals/awards were for the unjust actions, i.e. bombing innocent Serbian peoples, and awarded by authorization/approval of Clinton himself (that alone is disgusting to me). To the point: the medals - against all US military discipline, rules, traditions, and regulations - are now, and forever, no longer part of my uniform. As above I write - this means nothing to - well everyone - but I can no longer stand to even look at my uniform with these tainted medals on it (i served almost all my life for the things/ideas that made the USA good - Clintons’ Kosovo Campaign can not be included). These medals - every time I look at my old uniform - are reminders of what Clintonistas and cohorts did and continue to do to Serbian peoples. The uniform is now tainted (and this is a sad situation for me) as in place of where the medals once were - there are blank spaces (totally illegal by military law/regulation/customs). But thus it will remain forever - tainted, improper, “civilian sloppy” - thanks to the Clintonistas (still nothing in comparison to the hell that “Bill and Hill” et al, put the Serbians to (and still are - with the aid of those who should have known better))… I hope that the truth of the Serbian situation will be known/spread far and wide someday - and soon…This entire situation is so unacceptable.

Regarding Clintonistas and the [bombing] of Serbia: It is my opinion that all Clintonistas were/still are almost completely clueless about exactly what they did to the Serbs and/or what it meant/means to the bigger/long-term picture (and are primarily responsible for the perpetuation of the situation - leading to the stealing of Kosovo by the international community). I highly doubt that even the “collective genius” of the Clintonites could put together any grand scheme that would have any long-term strategic meaning. Perhaps other forces/entities were/are involved, but if true - Clintonistas were nothing more than useful idiots playing along.

And after my follow-up email to Theodore:

The medal is referred to as the “Kosovo Medal”, “Kosovo Campaign Medal”, etc. It is one of two which i have removed from my uniform. The other is the “Armed Forces Service Medal” (typical ambiguous/meaningless-ness kind of medal from the Clinton “Comander-in-Chief” era - awarded for actions in theater including Bosnia, Croatia, later Kosovo, areas; nicknamed by many who were awarded this medal as the “Girl Scout Medal” (not to diparage the Girl Scouts or girls - it was the color combination - yellow, olive green light green, light blue - that gave the medal that extra dimension of meaninglessness…Also, the notion - held by many - [was] that the CIC (commander in chief) didn’t really know what he was doing - particularly with regard to military actions/combat operations/warfare as part of diplomacy, etc.) Perhaps some insiders (or those unwillingly part) of the Clintonistas’ administration realized that what we (the USA) were doing was just not right - and so the award/medal could not be called/designated in more accurate terms as the “Re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate” Medal… So better to have sent in the Girl Scouts - as things would have ended up basically the same as they have, except perhaps with less loss of innocent life. Anyway, it’s is also off of my uniform forever.

My only desire is that in some very small way it may help people to become aware - especially Serbians - that not all Americans are clueless - and that more can/must be done to alert the (civilized/free world) to this horrible situation…Also, I am very very displeased with what the Bush administration has done regarding the issue of Kosovo - as well as with Israel, etc. In fact this part (why the Bush admin is playing along with the islamists) I can not figure out.
