“KLA finances fight with heroin sales - Terror group linked to crime network”

“KLA rebels train in terrorist camps - Bin Laden offers financing, too”

I copied the above photos and captions directly from the Citizen Soldier website, which reminds us whom we sided with in Bosnia:

Can Peace and Freedom Come From This?
“There can be no peace or coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic societies and political institutions. The Islamic movement must and can takeover political power as soon as it is morally and numerically so strong that it can not only destroy the existing non-Islamic power but also build up a new Islamic authority. Every good Muslim through his formal engagement, including the political one, at all times and in all places must, above all, serve Islam, by force if necessary.” Alija Izetbegovic, President of Bosnia, from his Islamic Declaration, 1990.


“We’re going in to keep the conflict from spreading.” –Bill Clinton, 1999

People often ask me how a comedian embarked on a Balkans-watching odyssey. When I woke up on March 24th, 1999 to hear that the United States of America was dropping bombs on Europe on behalf of Muslims claiming oppression — in order to keep the conflict from spreading — it struck me as funnier than any joke I could write. When you help Muslims with their wars, it doesn’t keep the conflict from spreading. It spreads Islam. And it spreads to you.

I am sorry to report that, while Bill Clinton delivered the death blows to Yugoslavia, we started on this path with George Bush Sr., whose ambassador Warren Zimmerman flew to Sarajevo in 1992 to advise Izetbegovic to remove his signature from the Lisbon Agreement that all three parties signed precisely to avoid the civil wars that ensued. Zimmerman assured Izetbegovic that the U.S. would have his back if he wanted an independent Muslim Bosnia.

The rape, slaughter and dismemberment of Yugoslavia was a bipartisan enterprise from Day One, and it remains so. What makes the Clinton administration’s role more nefarious is that the first Bush administration was still operating on a Cold War mentality, in which any vestige of Communism was still a target — and Yugoslavia stayed fatally comfortable with the apparatchik system too long. Meanwhile, Islam wasn’t yet known to be the biggest international threat.

By 1999, however, the Islamic threat was a known entity and there were already two international warrants out for Osama bin Laden, including for the bombing of the U.S. embassiess in Africa. This is also why reasonable comparisons between our unholy alliance in Kosovo and our 1980s alliance in Afghanistan fall short. The Soviet Union was in fact an enemy and an international menace; the Serbs aren’t and never were — but Islamic terrorism was and is.

As well, while George H. W. Bush bumbled through the confusion that is the Balkans, Bill Clinton knew exactly what he was doing. He knew that his numbers of dead and displaced in Kosovo were a fabrication, but he needed a vanity war in his last two years in office so that the word “Lewinsky” wouldn’t be the last thing associated with his presidency. Outrageously, he, his wife, Wesley Clark, Madeleine Albright, Richard Holbrooke and other Clintonistas continue, even eight years later, to boastfully lie to Americans that we “prevented a genocide” in Europe with our “successful war” in Kosovo, where not a single American life was lost.

It helps when you’re fighting for the enemy.
