1. Albright, Artemije Jeered by Serbs, Cheered by Albanians; Media Report Only the Latter Story
PRISTINA, July 29 - Now you see it now you dont. One moment Madeleine Albright and the "naïve" Serb Bishop Artemije are jeered by a group of angry Serbs; a few hours later, that story is pulled, and another one substituted showing Albright being cheered by Albanians in Pristina. Same day (July 29), same Halfbright, two different messages for the not-so-bright among the western readers.
It was Albrights first visit to Kosovo after the end of "Madeleines War," as the Times magazine termed it (see S99-81, Day 55, Item 2, May 17). And it provided an excellent opportunity for all people with "eyes wide shut" to see how the western media manipulate the truth.
When we checked the wires at 2:59PM EDT, the ClariNet Daily News, hosted on the IBM Nets home page, led with a top (UPI) story whose headline was, "Albright Jeered by Angry Serbs." Five hours later (at 8:05PM EDT), the top (AP) story by same wire news was titled, "Albright Cheered by Albanians." The story about the jeering Serbs was no longer to be found anywhere within the index of ClariNets daily news for July 29. The TiM editor now has the printout of both IBM/ClariNet indexes for "Thursday, July 29 - Top Stories" to prove it.
Beyond such blatant manipulation, Albrights visit to Kosovo provided another opportunity to point out some more subtle ways of western news manipulations and brainwashing. Here is an excerpt from the first UPI story:
That was the gist of the UPI story. Now lets try to delouse the media doublespeak lice.
First, have you noticed that patriots are always characterized as "extremists" by the establishment media? So were the Serb patriots in the above opening sentence. Second, they are typically associated with some undesirable figure or a country - Milosevic in this case. Third, are always depicted as unreasonably violent, thus the term "mob" to describe their unruly behavior.
Fortunately for the lovers of truth and liberty, the UPI story was also accompanied with a photo. Take at look at some these "extremists," "Milosevic supporters," the "mob" which wanted to beat up their own bishop and priests for collaborating with the enemy. First, none of them are armed. Second, they range in age from about 5 to about 75. Third, none of them had any pro-Milosevic posters which the typical "party" members carry during rallies or protests. Fourth, several of them are waiving the Serbian three-finger salute, symbolizing the Holy Trinity.
And thats what the supporters of the Serb communist traitor who abandoned them and Kosovo to world class terrorists would do? Only the readers with their "eyes wide shut" might fall for such incongruities. Especially as a morsel of truth had slipped the watchful eyes of the NWO media editorial censors - the fact that fewer than 25% of the pre-war Serbian population remain after six weeks of NATOs "peace."
So let us try to rewrite the above excerpt from the UPI story which may be closer to the truth of what happened at Gracanica on July 29:
2. Thugs of the (NATO) World Unite (Again) to Plan Phase II of "Perpetual Commerce Through Perpetual War" Strategy
SARAJEVO, July 30 - Top thugs of the NATO world united again yesterday in Sarajevo to plot the Phase II two of their "Perpetual Commerce Through Perpetual War" strategy. This time, the topic was the rebuilding of their latest Balkans conquest - Kosovo - which the NATO bombers had been destroying during the Phase I, the 11-week air war. Led by Bill Clinton, the NATO unindicted war criminals pledged billions of taxpayers dollars in reconstruction aid for all but "Milosevics Serbia" - to the silent applause of invisible spectators at the newly rebuilt Sarajevo Olympic stadium (with western taxpayers money, of course), where the meeting was held.
Who were the invisible spectators cheering the latest assault on our wallets? The NATO war criminals bosses - the "death merchants" and other NWO corporate leaches, sponging off the western taxpayers and human misery caused by their "perpetual wars for perpetual commerce."
By doing so, the NATO leaders and their NWO "godfathers" followed to a tee a scenario which we outlined at the start of NATOs war on Serbia. Heres an excerpt from the article, "Two Parallel Wars: Orwell Would Have a Blast Today" (A Commentary), published on Apr. 3 (see S99-25, Day 11, Update 2, Item 1, Apr. 3):
3. How Serb Dummies Fooled NATO Dummies (Part II);"M-18" - the Serb "Trojan Horse"
BELGRADE, July 29 - In our TiM GW Bulletin S99-112, "Peace" 6, Items 1 and 2, June 21, we debunked NATOs bunk about zero combat losses during its 79-week war with Serbia. Three days later, as we also showed you HOW the low-tech Serb ingenuity reduced the high-tech NATO might to a laughing stock of the military world (see "Serb Dummies Fool NATO Dummies," S99-114, "Peace" 8, Items 1 and 2, June 24).
According to the western reports at the time (e.g., the London Times, June 24), the Serb military deployed various decoys and camouflage techniques supposedly learned from the Soviets. But a recent article by a Serb engineer, Mato Siladic in the Yugoslav "Aeromagazine," a magazine published by and for the flying enthusiasts and aeronautical modelers, revealed additional details of how the Serb civilians, not the Yugoslav Air Force, came with the idea which preserved the Serb militarys most valuable flying assets - the MiG 29s. And how these Serb patriots built them while NATO bombs were raining all around them.
You can check out at our Web site a special album of photographs by Djordje Ivanov, which illustrate the various phases of construction and deployment of the MiG-29 decoys, which the Serb aeronautical enthusiasts jokingly dubbed the "M-18" - http://www.truthinmedia.org/Kosovo/War/PhotoAlbum/photos-war-10.html.
But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. The ultimate success of this enterprising Serb civilian contribution to their countrys defense had to be proven in combat. And it was. About 90% of all the decoys built by the "M-18" team were destroyed by NATOs bombs.
"Under normal circumstances, every designer-modeler would have loved to nurture and protect his babies," said Radoje Glagojevic, one of the "M-18" designers. "(But in this case), we wanted the NATO aggressors to destroy as many of them as possible." Blagojevic is a modeler from Nova Pazova, a small town about 20 miles northwest of Belgrade, close to the Batajnica military airport, which was practically a nightly target of NATO bombs during its 11-week air campaign.
Here are some excerpts from the article "Aeromagazine," in our translation from Serbian:
Eventually, members of the Nova Pazova aeronautical modeling club, such as Blagojevic, pitched in with their own ideas and labor of love to try to help their countrys war effort. Their ultimate gratification came on June 12. Thats when 11 Yugoslav MiG-29s sprouted their wings and took off from Pristinas Slatina airport, to the utter shock and amazement of the NATO brass and the western media. Heres how Col. David Hackworth put it in his June 15 nationally syndicated column (see S99-111, "Peace" 5, Item 5, June 18):
Well, now we know not only the score, but even how this feat was achieved. A bunch of Serb MiG-29 dummies fooled a bunch of NATO brass dummies with an "M-18" Serb "Trojan Horse," created by a pilot-painter and cartoonist, and a bunch of Nova Pazova aeronautical enthusiasts and modelers. Homo Sapiens wins. Technology loses. A great victory for human spirit; a sad day for the "death merchants."
