This article was written to show that the members of the UN Security Council who participated in the Kosova crisis for 78 days between March 24, 1999 and June 10, 1999 were controlled by America under the direction of its corporate masters, the same big businesses that profited from the rise of Nazism in Europe.
War improves the pocketbooks of various sectors of the American economy. The Desert Storm fiasco
helped Ford, GM and other manufacturers of vehicles used in the conflict. The Balkan conflict also helped their stocks. Also arms manufacturers both in American and abroad profited from the orgy of violence. The bottom line here is profits not lives. Perhaps two hundred rich people are very happy because their business portfolios were successful, and the blood is on their hands, despite their denials. All their philanthropy is pocket change compared to the blood money that constitutes all appreciation of stock value occurring after March 24, 1999.
Indeed, the rich are profiting at the expense of the poor, in violation of useless UN conventions which most corporations escape through such bizarre loopholes such as legally granting them the same rights from prosecution as private individuals. For the rich are the most aware and sensitive of class warfare, most of which has been instituted under such guises as narco-terrorism, trade sanctions against nations unwilling to allow foreign investment by American corporations, American military training of foreign armies and militias, and other forms of brutal repression.
Ultimately 200 people are the reason why the International Decade of Peace (2000-2010) is off to a rocky start.
Global Fear and Loathing
From the evidence I have discovered, NATO's recent involvement in the Balkans and the UN's continued involvement in the breakup of the Yugoslav republic, was initially precipitated by the failure of the Communists in their attempt to re-establish the Soviet dictatorship in Moscow prior to the pro-democracy, anti-government rally in Beograd (Belgrad) on March 9, 1991.
Yet, those people who claim this is merely a peace-keeping exercise by NATO against Serbia over Kosova with Albanian Muslims as the oppressed minority are too short-sighted to see the larger picture: the two major superpowers, Russia and America, are carving out a post-Cold War empire made out of broken promises by multinational corporations and risky economic recovery plans based on fast-food franchises.
We should not lose sight of the fact that the Serbs are victims too — of the cold-hearted spin-doctor war by an American PR firm, who shall remain nameless, since people who help to manufacture consent for an unnecessary decade of war in the Former Republic of Yugloslavia should not be mentioned lest their propaganda gain greater credibility: this new world order mythology of Serbia guilty of Nazi-like ethnic cleansing against the helpless Albanian Kosovars.
We were supposed to be credulous of the claims of Albanian Muslims as victims of Serb-led ethnic cleansing, when the truth is that the rebel UCK guerillas are as bloody in their raids against Serbs as the Serb militias were against innocent Albanian Muslims in Kosova. The original grievance of the Albanians is the loss of autonomy orchestrated by Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic in a futile bid to assimilate them into the Serbian mainstream.
Meanwhile, the 1994-1996 Chechen problem in Russia has similar echoes of ethnic cleansing with whole Chechen villages being wiped off the map, along with vital communications centres that could counteract the propaganda from Moscow now being broadcast as truth. The Chechen, who call themselves Nochkha, "the People", have grievances that originate with the beginning of the Soviet empire and later, the end of World War II. Russia has never treated the Chechens well, coveting their raw materials while trying to move them out of their tiny homeland. In response, these gentle Muslim people, who once knew no borders and lacked political awareness, developed a growing sense of their political situation, sometimes turning to violence out of frustration.
When objectively analyzed, both the Balkan situation and the Chechen situation are the same: Slavs are working against the weather to ensure cultural genocide to rid themselves of the independence-minded elements amongst the Muslims.
It does not matter if they are Albanian or Chechen. What matters is that Yugoslav Serbs are the enemy, and that Chechen rebels are the bad guys. After all, both Russia and the Kosova Muslims are our friends and allies, and we are supposed to be loyal to them, not to "the dogs of war" as the other side has been painted by the media. Yet it matters not that both the Serbs of the former Yugoslav republic and the Chechens of the Caucasus mountains have been branded the bad guys, especially when both the Serbs and the Chechen not part of the army or police are innocent civilians who are equally tarred with the same journalistic brush.
Likewise, it matters not to NATO or the Russian military might. This is why in Kosova, NATO allowed planes to kill indiscriminately. They could always regret the mistake later. In Chechen, Russia must exterminate the Chechen rebels so that it can keep this mineral-rich Caucasus province within its rapidly crumbling empire. In Kosova, NATO has claimed the land in the name of peace, but with truth and justice unfairly divided, it seems more prudent to consider this just desserts.
Perhaps the US is using this military exercise as punishment against Milosevic for the death of an obscure American statesman and a handful of businessmen during the first phase of the break-up of Yugoslavia.
Still we must consider the bigger picture: the vying of two superpowers for control of the lucrative economic potential of the Balkans. This consists of both legitimate industry and illegitimate industry:
- Petroleum refineries
- Manufactured goods

Note also that official government sites in most of the member nations that participated in the recent blood bath in Yugoslavia conveniently ignore the non-violence and peace movements in Serbia which won elections is most of the cities of Serbia, and also fail to include reference to origins of the break up in a US law.
