    I have to admit that I was duped by the media and believed the Serbs were the bad guys. Why didn’t the West go in and take those evil creeps out sooner? However 911 woke me up. That official fairy tale was just unbelievable. As I looked into conspiracy theory I noticed we were duped all the time. Now it’s more like, don’t believe it until it was officially denied. Even mundane things that I took for granted like a diamond engagement ring is part of an advertising campaign started by, the big diamond companies. How manipulated?
    I did not find anything in this documentary that was false. This is not to say that everyside didn’t do evil things during the Civil War that broke up Yugoslavia. The basic premise that the West conspired (and succeeded) to break up Yugoslavia is all too true. Teh WEight of chains makes how war and chaos was created and then used to colonize and pillage the former Yugoslavia. This paradigm is much closer to reality than the what I used to believe by reading the New York Times or the Washington Post. The West decided to do away with Ghadafi in Libya and now he’s gone. Now it wants regime change in Syria but is stalled because the Russians have a naval base there. These techniques were worked out in Latin America in the 60s and 70s (Chile for example). Many of the torture atrocities coming from Bagram, Afghanistan or Guantanomo, Cuba were happening at Camp Bondsteel years before. The ethnic cleansing of the Krajina was all planned and worked out for Croatia by private US military consultants. It certainly is disheartening. What to do? What to do?

    Bullshit: these people cannot leave together and the fact .YU was ruled from Serbia did not help: this country had to split.

    The real scam took place during the Versailles treaty, in 1919, when they created .YU to control the whole zone.

    My grands father who was a Cro from Bosnia suddenly happened he had to report to Orthodox cyrillic-writing Serbs instead of a mix of Catholics and Muslims with whom he used to live in peace.

    I was directly implied in the split and I know the ideological reasons that made the Cros split.

    The above article is misleading, but it’s possible that the West finally realised they could also benefit from a re-partition, in 1992, as the Cro took Knin back and the until-then unimplied Clinton finally launched a few Tomcats to destroy Serbian outposts.

    I knew at the time that it did not stack up but who can pay attention when you have a full time career and home to build. Yet I can trace the commencement of my separation from the matrix by virtue of the UK media coverage I was subjected to re all this. I tried over the years to read stuff that came out of Serbia or re Serbia that was trying to spark an expansion of minds and a different comprehension but it was all very inaccessible because well with the greatest respect it was all very Serbian, deep in pain and of different constructs in the thinking, and which stuff really brought home to me why they were so defenseless against the propaganda at the time. They might as well have been martians when trying to speak up and be heard.

    Congratulations to all involved in this programme for well and truly making its contents so accessible. However comprehension did require prior economic and financial awakening and its this prior knowledge that makes this account stack up. Much was shocking but the theft of the mine and the stuff actually targeted in the bombing – jaw dropping. We have a legend in the UK that the TV producer Jill something or other was taken out by way of revenge for the death by bombing of a Serbian female TV presenter, if true, a women so loved by person or persons who were not impotent in the face of overwhelming crushing odds.

    My view there is no such thing as the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Truth to me is as many perspectives as there are but I was vaguely aware at the time what I was being told what to think re this stuff was perception deliberately artificially constructed and deliberately curtailed and withheld. Watching this brought it all back and to my surprise my reaction was, overwhelmingly, anger, anger enough to believe in the power of the curse as opposed to the power of pray and to utter a fair few. I recommend it to those like me whose only power is to know.

    WW 1, WW 2, Czechoslovackia, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria on and on and on. Same formula, different place. Ever wonder why Germany and American companies end up owning everything? YUGOSLAVIA IS ONE BIG COLONY RUN BY THE EU, GERMANY, AND AMERICA.

    excellent film, all-too rare… unfortunately.
    Comments are also thoughtful and encouraging, (except “Slobodan”resurrecting ethno-historic chains).
    The message of this movie also resonates with Naomi Klein’s book, “Shock Doctrine” showing how the IMF/World Bank and
    co. systematically used debt-leverage, (crony-loans/bribes, corruption) to economically de-stabilize countries, so that they
    could then be controlled (or divided) politically and then, (if necessary) militarily.

    “Gepay” (above) asks, “What to do? What to do?”

    THAT is THE question of our age… one which we (moderns) struggle to answer (or even ask)… so divided and isolated are we from
    our neighbours… atomized into our own little cocoons.

    I personally believe the only REAL answer must ultimately be a spiritual one; meaning, each individual making a commitment within their own self, to face the truth, and find a way to WORK TOGETHER with others… overcoming the delusions of the individual ego.

    From a place of personal conviction and UNITY in ACTION, I believe we will spark a critical mass of consciousness now circulating within the human masses, (still unsure).

    As I was watching this, it occurred to me how easily many within the Yugoslav Federation may have fallen for the various propaganda campaigns by the ethno-extremists… simply because they WERE NOT IMMUNISED to the power of THE BIG LIE… the media machine, which the SOCIAL human being instinctively WANTS to believe… until we BECOME sufficiently AWARE of it; and on that day, when enough of us recognize the depth of the media-machine deception, we will have broken forever the beast’s bloody reign.

    Let love be our guide.

  • Cannot approve for conservative audiences. Several “experts” have subversive connections to ‘think tanks’ such as Michael Parenti with the Institute for Policy Studies.

    While I would say there is technically nothing stated or shown in this documentary that was incorrect, I find fault in the way it was presented. It downplayed the preceding ethnic tension by fiat, and focused on the economic strife that exacerbated it. In doing so, the content makers omitted the mass rapes and atrocities of which Serbs were disproportionately complicit. Making a documentary showing a side of the story opposite the one fed to the Western mainstream, with the same amount omission as the latter is just as dishonest. I laud the content producers for digging up these facts, documents, interviews and footage, [without resorting to rumors, forgeries, pre-rehearsed conversation and propaganda for primary material]. That said, the story told here is only half of what occurred.

    I was in the Air Force stationed at Ramstein in 1999 during operation Allied Force. I was not involved in combat but had a bird’s eye view of everything we did. I was given a medal for my support of the operation.
    I can definitely say that after we bombed the Serb military and Milosovic did not surrender, we began bombing civilian infrastructure (Roads, bridges, TV Stations, power plants) in order to terrorize the Serbs into removing Milosovic from power. We were using shock and awe tactics against a civilian population and nobody protested because the economy was running smoothly. Our forces were using the textbook definition of terrorism, creating fear to force innocent civilians to vote the way we wanted.
    The Chinese embassy would have never been bombed if the US was not targeting civilians in the first place.

  • Just watched this for the second time, (since a year ago) and it seemed new; so information-packed it is.

    And something struck so simple and clear: WHENEVER the president of the United States, Britain, France, Germany, (and practically any major ally) makes a statement, you can be sure it’s A LIE; or, a miniscule amount of truth twisted into a lie.

    The cynicism of these people is breath-taking.

    Of course, Russian, Chinese, Iranian leaders etc. are not immune to this; but as the saying goes, a bunch of (competing) smaller bullies will do a lot less damage (and reveal more reality) than one big, unstoppable bully.
