PHOENIX, Apr. 4 -
Here are some TiM readers' comments about the above TiM Bulletin, along
with the TiM editor's replies. But
first, so you would be able to put them in a proper context, here's the
closing paragraph from the TiM Bulletin:
“The $40 million is a drop in the bucket,” a Belgrade businessman told
TiM. “Besides, the Serb
people at large would have never seen that money.
It would have all gone to Djindjic and his cronies.” If true,
Washington has for once made the right move, albeit for the wrong reasons.
Djindjic et. al. have already shown that they are ready to sell
themselves and their country for pittance.
So why waste money bribing beggars?"
TEXAS - KLA Off State Department’s Terror List
HOUSTON, Apr. 4 -
Ron Ames, a TiM reader from Houston, Texas, sent us the following comment:
the Powell st. dept. certifies untold millions for the terrorist Arafat
regime and that money goes directly to fund acts of terror and into the
bank accounts of P.A. (Palestinian Authority) leaders. The money is supposed to go for building roads, sewage
systems, schools, hospitals etc.
more thing... Bob, guess which org. is off of the U.S. St. Dept's. list of terror orgs.? You guessed it....
one more thing... the Serbs need that money to rebuild their country after
N.A.T.O. devastated the
To which the TiM
Ron, as always. What you said
at the end is a ONE HUGE difference between Serbia and Israel.
The U.S. has been supporting Israel militarily and financially for
decades. No such thing with Serbia. In fact, it is absolutely arrogant of
Powell to even contemplate withholding $40M when in fact the U.S. owes
Serbia (unconditionally, interest free) war reparations to the tune of
$30B or more.
added the following "PS" (last paragraph) to our piece (click
here to read it within the original TiM Bulletin):
done the right thing for the wrong reasons)
"Powell should do the right thing for the right reasons - pay to
Serbia $30 billion+ as unconditional, interest free, war reparations.
That would be a small compensation for the destruction of the
country's CIVILIAN infrastructure that the American bombs have caused.
No amount of money, of course, can compensate the families of
innocent civilians killed by American bombs.
But a small amount of compassion might be a good start."

Rid the Region of Crud for Free"
JERUSALEM, Apr. 2

and occasional contributor to TiM with whose writings our longtime readers
should be familiar:

I just remembered your piece from three years ago - "Kosovo

Do you still think that "In order to "save"- Israel from itself, the NWO
forces will attack and impose its solutions on her."

think I don't know it's a NWO war? I backed the Serbs because they were
set up. How's that for a reminder? Barry
TiM Ed.: The Serbs
were not "set up." They
were ravaged by eight years of genocidal UN sanctions and obliterated by
78 days of Washington-led NATO bombing. Some 23,000 bombs and
missiles were dropped on them in 36,000 sorties. Besides Bill Clinton and
Al Gore, the most prominent among the American politicians who are
responsible for the war crimes against Serbia are Madeleine Albright, Sam
Berger, William Cohen, Wesley Clark, Joe Lieberman, Richard Holbrooke...

Bite the Hand That Feeds You

We received the following comment from Nenad Briski, a TiM reader from
Germany. The original text
was in Serbian. Here's a
people in Serbia say: "Do not spit into your own soup bowl," as
well as "do not bite the hand that feeds you."
your intellectual crusade against the despicable, enslaving America would
be far more convincing if your contemplations were to originate from
Babusnica or Surdulica (Serb towns), rather than from Phoenix, Arizona.
that country is so terrible, why are you still there, instead of leaving
it to help (our) people at home?
To which the TiM
I were to write this from Surdulica, who in America would care to read it?
As it were, Americans from all 50 states, and visitors from about
95 countries around the world, are reading our TiM reports.
it would be much more cowardly criticizing Washington from abroad than
correction, though... that "America's hand" does not "feed
me." It's the other way around.
I "feed it" - as an American citizen and taxpayer.
America IS MY HOME! That is
why I am trying to improve it - however minuscule my contribution.
And to the extent I succeed it, that will automatically help that
other (former) home which is now being ruled by Washington's servants.

Will consider your comments for publication in a TiM readers forum.
Re. Don’t Bite the Hand That Feeds You
ITALY, Apr. 5 - We received the following comment from Dr. Alexis Menander, commenting about the above letter from Nenad Briski, a TiM reader from Germany, and our response to him:
"Nenad Briski": Just wanted to share with you, dear Bob, that
the same kind of "argument" happened to me many times over here
in "my country" (most affectively by my own mother). The thing I
want to add to your completely valid response is, that in fact I've never
seen that a person who criticizes this way has ever "done a
s**t" for it, that is: done nothing at all to practically improve our
overall living-conditions where we are.
easy for people who are slaves to throw dirt onto non-slaves, for they're
not free, and this is what makes them angry - that they haven't got the
guts to non-conform, to break-free!
Keep it up! Many do in fact appreciate your work, wherever you might have
chosen to live - which is, besides, your very own, personal decision.
To which the TiM
do share one common trait - I also feel at home wherever I happen to be.
And try to help improve the quality of life there - even if only by
making people laugh once in a while.
AUSTRALIA - Good Places to Live, Bad Politicians
NEWCOMB, Victoria, Apr. 5 - We received the following comment from Andrew MacGregor, a TiM reader from Australia:
Nenad that America is like Serbia, which is like Australia, and most other places. They are good places to live, it is just a shame about the politicians.
- Re. “Balkan Spy” Affair
CALIFORNIA, Mar. 20 - We received the following comment from Bob Karcher, a TiM reader from California:
on great reporting of the Perisic treason.
In my opinion they should all be shot... Neighbor (the top
CIA operative in Belgrade) and Montgomery (the
U.S. ambassador) for espionage against a
sovereign nation, and Perisic and friends for treason.
committing espionage against our great WWI and WWII ally Serbia... whom we
have been betraying ever since… Neighbor and Montgomery are guilty of
treason against the US. I
hope they are shot ASAP. How
I despise these NWO cretins.

Nothing Will Work, Ever!
BOSTON, Apr. 1 - We received the following comment from Andre Huzsvai, a TiM reader from Massachusetts:
I'm sickened by both the pushy and cocky policies of the Israeli Jews, and
the homicidal culture of their cousins, there is one more party to blame:
the U.S.! We should have
based its Middle East policy on two principles: Arabs are not to be
trusted, and Jews are not to be given preferential treatment.
that the situation is way beyond solvable, why doesn’t someone say the
unmentionable: Artificial geopolitical entities depending on outside
powers do not survive in a hostile environment where none of the neighbors
wants them. In the context of the true Palestinian intentions of
establishing their state not next to, but rather in the place of Israel,
and the demographics that work against the Jewish state in the long haul,
the only solution would be to declare Israel a failed geopolitical
exercise that perhaps won’t survive another 50 years, or if it does, the
price won’t be worth it.
anyone get it still? Nothing will work there, ever. Nobody seems to notice
or acknowledge that micromanaging this mess just won't do it any more.
They hate each other in a rabid way only members of the same extended
family can, strangers never.
should WE be dragged into a fight over what hill or at which wall they
want to pray?
Palestinians Should Be Relocated
HOUSTON, Apr. 1 - We received the following comment from Ron Ames, a TiM reader from Texas:
Bob, I actually advocate relocation of the Palestinians to any one of the
22 Arab countries. Call it ''ethnic cleansing'' or whatever you want to
reason the Serbs did not succeed was the largest air force in the history
of the world (NATO) stopped them. Kosovo
and Macedonia would be a lot quieter places minus the Albanians and
terrorism would be a rare occurrence.
TiM Ed.: The preceding implies that the Serbs were trying to “ethnically cleanse” the Albanians from Kosovo, the “cradle of the Serb civilization,” and the Serb ancestral land for centuries. Rather than debate the “ethnic cleansing” implication, which echoes what Washington had said in order to justify the bombing, we just want to point out some basic facts so TiM readers could judge for themselves.
Prior to WW II, the Serbs accounted for more than 50% of Kosovo’s population. Here’s an excerpt from our article, “Kosovo: Bosnia II, Serbia’s Aztlan,” (Mar. 1998):
1929, Serbs constituted 61% of the population in 1929, ethnic Albanians
33%, and others 6%. By 1961, the pendulum had swung the other way, as a
result of the communist-sponsored demographic terrorism. Ethnic-Albanians
accounted for 67%, the Serbs for 27%, and others for 6%.
(1998), the ethnic-Albanians represent about 90% of Kosovo's population,
according to their own and the western media figures. But since there has
not been a census done in Kosovo for over 10 years, such claims cannot be
After the NATO bombing in 1999, the Serbs are practically extinct in all but the very northern tip of Kosovo (Mitrovica area).
If the Serbs did engage in “ethnic cleansing,” they did a pretty lousy job of it, wouldn’t you say? For, the Serbs got exterminated in the process. We suspect that’s not the outcome Mr. Ames had in mind for Israel when he advocated the relocation of Palestinians.
Philanthropy Instead of Martyrdom
AUSTRALIA, Mar. 31 - We received the following comment from Ian Campbell, a TiM reader from Australia:
Middle East will always be at war because they cant seem to mature into
the world of reality of the fact that there is no life in death.
can only martyr oneself once, so it has to be a cultural change in the
lives of these people and the destructive and cunning manner that we here
in Australia have also noticed as a trait of Middle Eastern people.
believe that the world could do with more acts of philanthropy in the
Middle East, and adjust the attitude of the culture to be giving to
others. As the Lord Jesus
said, “freely you have received, so freely give.”
Do Not Imitate Actions of Our Israeli “Ally”
OREGON, Mar. 30 - We received the following comment from Tom Myisiewicz, a TiM reader from Oregon:
reading in the U.S. Military Manual "Tasks for Soldiers" that
the taking of reprisals against civilians, including random killings and
destruction of dwellings, are actionable war crimes for U.S. personnel.
Hopefully, U.S. personnel in this area will be cautioned not to
imitate the actions of our Israeli "ally".

The World Never Cries “Stop the Zionism!”
CALIFORNIA, Mar. 30 - We received the following comment from Cathy Case, a TiM reader from California:
think that it is accurate to say that "hate and vengeance"
represents the Arab position on Zionism.
After NATO gave the Kosovo Albanians everything they wanted, they
still attacked the Serb minority and “ethnically cleansed” the
majority of them, while NATO allowed this to happen saying they
couldn't control such "passions".
say what the Kosovo Albanians did was based solely on "hate and
other hand, the Palestinians have never had anyone "rescue" them
from Zionism, nor have they had the incredible injustices perpetrated
against them corrected. The
world never cries "stop the Zionism!"
They always cry "Stop the violence".
imagine if the world was crying "stop the violence" in
Afghanistan as the Mujahedeens were trying to protect their homeland from
a communist occupation. Or if
the world had cried "stop the violence" as the Soviet Union
tried to resist the invading Nazi forces.
Yet we expect the Arabs and Palestinians to acquiesce to Zionism and what it has meant to their lives, dignity, and futures. Even leaders in their own region no longer represent their just position, but rather cry the same phrases of "stop the violence" instead of "stop the Zionism!".
You Are Not Being Objective
MARYLAND, Apr. 2 - We received the following comment from E.B. Mechling, a TiM reader from Maryland:

course, that neither violence is justifiable.
If you read our reports carefully, you will see that point being
made in Item 1 of this very TiM Bulletin:
we noted in our September 11 editorial, written the same day,
“Collateral Damage Hits Home,” violence is futile, and “madness
only needs to look at the Middle East for an example of futility of
violence. To stop
anti-American terrorism, Washington must stop its own state terrorism.
Both brands of terrorism are despicable and inexcusable.”

Evil Always Destroys Itself
ILLINOIS, Mar. 30 - We received the following comment from Lucille Spacek, a TiM reader from Illinois:
you most sincerely for this latest TiM bulletin on the Middle East. I
think it is exceptional, Mr. Avnery's article from Haaretz, especially. If
all Israeli's had his understanding of the Palestinians situation, Sharon
would be out on his ear, and none of this would be happening. Instead of
incessantly blaming Arafat for others’ personal decisions, it would be
understood that all this, including the brutal, awful deaths and woundings
of Israeli's themselves, is Sharon's fervent wish.
so rightly pointed out, Arafat is helpless, hopeless and ineffectual to
stop any of this. He lost control, years ago
It's an illusion that he was ever, in control, of anything. But
funds he stole from the Palestinian people, money he took, willingly, to
betray them. Arafat stifled the voices of reason and helped breed
futility, anger, and soul killing despair among Palestinians, already so
crushed by Israel, they could barely survive.
presidents since the Zionist, Roosevelt, have supported this ruination,
murder, torture and rape of Palestine.
It will surprise the evil elites, when they find out all their
millennia of evil machinations to dominate this planet are doomed to
failure. Evil always destroys itself.
Derschowitz Recommended Torture
MASSACHUSETTS, Mar. 30 - We received the following comment from David Morgan, a TiM reader from Massachusetts:
below part of your latest on Alan Derschowitz. I believe this is the same
man who recommends torture for suspected criminals. Hmmmm... But that's
not what upsets me most. I, as a libertarian, am dumbfounded, (or maybe
just "dumb") that recently deceased so-called libertarian
Harvard philosopher Robert Nozick was a "bosom friend" of
'Adolf' Dershowitz. How could ANY libertarian be a friend of this evil
TiM Ed.: Derschowitz is evidently not the only one in our supposedly “civilized” society to recommend torture. This writer was absolutely abhorred at this week's debate on various U.S. TV networks about whether or not we (the U.S. investigators) should be allowed to torture the Al Qaeda leader recently wounded and captured in Pakistan. We weren’t shocked because of what anybody said, but that torturing a prisoner was debated at all. And over public airwaves at that! What are turning into… a new Gestapo-like police state?

GEORGIA, Apr. 6 - We received the following comment from Sandra Whittington, a TiM reader from Georgia (or “Occupied Georgia,” as she signed the letter):

BOLOGNA, Apr. 6 - We received the following comment from Dr. Alexis Menander, a TiM reader from Italy:
eagle as depicted on the American stamps can still be found on German
buildings. Of course, with the swastika removed - that is: carved in
stone. The rather "hard
lines" and geometric symmetries do support the reason for this: it is
not that easy to "carve a circle" into stone; far easier it is
to carve a triangle etc.
this kind of eagle can be found on Third-Reich-Stamps and propaganda
finally, it is congruent what the U.S. does in the world, and how it
represents itself to the world.

New State "Emergency" Powers Threaten Civil Liberties
Unelected Officials Can Force Vaccinations,
Quarantines, Rationing & Property Seizures
13, 2001 -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is sending a
model bill for state legislatures to pass that would give public health
officials and governors sweeping new authority to quarantine and vaccinate
individuals. Moreover, the proposal allows government authorities to
ration and commandeer drugs and other items, including firearms and

of a "public health emergency" -- which means whatever he says
it does. Further, the governor could then delegate this authority to
unelected political appointees in state and local public health offices.

“Hitler’s Eagles” Are Devoid of Context
CHICAGO, Apr. 6 - We received the following comment from Prof. J.P. Maher, a TiM reader from Chicago:
has not proved his case... When
I was a first-grader, we saluted the flag with right arm raised; stopped
that after Dec 7 '41 (the
Pearl Harbor Day - TiM Ed.).
"Hitler's eagles" are devoid of context. In the 1930s Studebaker
[South Bend IN] built a car called the "Dictator".
J Caesar was DICTATOR. Benito and Adolf added their meaning to the
term; the name was dropped. Thye kept on selling the COMMANDER and

Demise of Soviet and Roman Empires - in Verse
MOSCOW, Apr. 6 - We received the following comment from Victor (whose last name is known to TiM), a TiM reader from Russia:
last newsletter, where you compare symbols of New America with Hitler's
and Roman symbolism, reminded me a couple of verses from a song written
and sung (though of course it could not be sung openly) by Bulat Okudzhava.
Of course, he wrote it about the then-Soviet Union, but..... I give it to
you in Russian:
As for Lenin, I was greatly surprised when I was listening to a radio program and heard that there is one and the only acting Lenin's museum -- in... Finland! He is still very popular there (at least it's what the authors of that program insist on). The Finns say, "the Swedes didn't give us independence, Russian czars didn't, but Lenin did!"
TiM Ed.: Bulat S. Okudzhava was a Russian dissident poet whose works helped create important literature of dissent in the Soviet Union of the 1950s and 1960s. He died on June 12, 1997. We’ve asked Victor, if possible, to provide an English translation of the two verses for those among our readers who are not proficient in Russian. The two verses compare the Soviet Caesars with those of the Roman Empire.
PENNSYLVANIA - Caesar Did It, Too
PENNSYLVANIA, Mar. 30 - Speaking of Caesars, we received the following comment from Mary Paule of Pennsylvania. She simply enclosed a quotation of Julius Ceasar that seems to apply to the current situation in our country:
the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into
a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both
emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.
And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood
boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in
seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with
fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the
leader and gladly so.
How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."

Flag-waving: False Sense of Confidence
Nazi Germany had the "Fatherland." Communist Soviet Union
had the "Motherland." Americans are now being fed the BS of the
MASSACHUSETTS, Mar. 30 - We received the following comment from Jack Garcia, a TiM reader from Massachusetts:
a few years now, the U.S. Federal government has been pushing war movies
and television war shows. They know what they are doing, and they plan
ahead. Young men are again being taught that warfare is a noble thing,
battle is worthy of Motion Pictures Academy Awards. Since the 911
atrocity, the warrior hype has increased dramatically.
seven years ago, the U.S. Federal government began to gradually let young
men know that they should register their name with the government. I was
surprised. I did not know that registration had been again legislated. I
did a little checking, and found out that Jimmy Carter had quietly
(secretly), signed the quiet (secret) legislation. If you remember, the
draft statute had been either repealed, or otherwise put into hibernation
after the Vietnam thing. The U.S. Federal government is now gearing up for
a full-blown war.
the failure of the 10th Mountain Division troops in Afghanistan, just a
few weeks ago (see The
Anaconda Embarrassment, Mar. 20), the
U.S. Federal government is in a panic. U.S. soldiers are not able to fight
in the mountains against an entrenched army of seasoned fighters.
U.S. military has had a series of easy successes over the last fifteen
years. Those easy successes have given the U.S. military, and the American
people, a false sense of confidence.
"Just Cause" to capture or kill Noriega, and install our own
puppet, was a “no brainer.” Noriega’s troops were few in number, and
poorly trained third world thugs.
years ago, Operation "Desert Storm" was a bombing campaign, not
a war. What little action engaged in by U.S. ground forces was on flat
open terrain. Vietnam veterans who served in Iraq called Operation
"Desert Storm" a "cakewalk." Further successes on the
open terrain sections of Afghanistan have given further false confidence
to the U.S. military, and the American people.
Yugoslavia, three years ago, the bombing campaign was called a
"war." It was not a war. There was no large scale, on the ground
success of small-scale tactics against small groups further clouds the
issue. U.S. Special Operations forces are proficient at executing small
group actions against small groups of combatants. A series of successful
Spec Ops operations have added to the false confidence. Spectacular
successes in small group encounters do not translate into success in
large-scale warfare in the mountains, or in the jungles, or in densely
we pulled out our last ground combat troops from Vietnam in 1972, the
standards in the U.S. military have steadily eroded, in all branches. The
standards in the naval and military academies have also been lowered. I
have personally spoken with a half dozen cadets. All of them told me they
standards have been lowered to accommodate teenage girls. The problem here
is that it is not the girls who end up facing the enemy eyeball to
eyeball, it is the men. It is the men who will come home mutilated and in
coffins. American men going into battle today are in greater danger of
becoming a casualty because of those lowered standards.
the Commander in Chief, Bill Clinton, was in the Oral Office with Monica,
he was also sending out young men, the same age as Monica, to die in
battle. Virtually everyone in the Bush administration, from the
Commander-in-Chief to his advisors, including Bush himself, own billions
in oil stock in the Middle-East. They should disqualify themselves for
conflict of interest. They cannot make objective decisions about your sons
and husbands lives.
My experiences in a secret experimental hunter-killer battalion in
persuaded me that human life is worth more than mindless flag-waving, and
nationalistic cries of "The Homeland!" We are being whipped up
into a nationalistic hysteria. Nazi Germany had the
"Fatherland." The Communist Soviet Union had the
"Motherland." Americans are now being fed the BS of the
must do everything we can to inform our loved ones about (not) registering for
the draft. They should not feel obligated die for these bastards in the
U.S. Federal government. They should not register for this corrupt
government. God Bless,
