1. TiM Editor at St. Sava's Cathedral in New York

NEW YORK, Apr. 29 - The TiM editor addressed this evening a packed church hall of the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in New York City. The topic, of course, was NATO's war on Serbia, and your editor's recent trip there. After about a 10-minute speech, the TiM editor spent almost an hour-and-a-half answering questions from the audience, mostly Serbian-Americans from the tristate area.

In his opening remarks, the TiM editor noted an irony. "As it turns out, I came to this church hall gathering directly from a meeting in the New York Stock Exchange boardroom; the heart of the New World Order, and the hallowed shrine of the object of its worship - the Almighty Dollar. The thought put a big grin on my face as I was making this trip - from the hall of the NOW's Golden Calf, to this house of God. I knew I was moving up (town - literally!) in this world, and am very happy to be here."

During the question and answer period, the topics ranged from the geopolitical reasons for NATO's aggression; to human interest aspects of this war, such as the effect of NATO's bombing on ordinary people and ecology in the Balkans.


2. An American Indian's View of "Ethnic Cleansing:" Remember the Trail of Tears?

PHOENIX, Apr. 28 - Since the start of NATO's war on Serbia, we've received several comments from Native Americans - the American Indians - who saw in it a renewal of a gripe of their own. Here is an excerpt from one letter which we've selected for publication:

"Hypocritical - is possibly the word best suited for the American role in the aggressions against the Nation of Yugoslavia. All (alleged Serb 'crimes')- the justifications rendered by the Clinton Administration for this aggression - have been and continue to be perpetrated by the United States Government against its own Native Peoples.

Since the earliest beginning of the United States Government it has sought to eradicate or assimilate the ethic people of the continent it occupies. Germ warfare, massacre of women, children and the elderly, forced removal from Homelands, and sequestering in desolate environments have been U.S. policy.

The removal of ethnic Albanians is played up by the Americans, forgetting that it was the United States Government who ordered the forced removal from the southeastern part of the American continent of the Five Civilized Nations in what was later to be called The Trail of Tears. American Indian People forced from their homes with little more than they could carry in their arms. Forced westward marches with the dead and dying left on the side of the trails. Execution of any who sought to remain or escape. It should be further noted that these Nations were guaranteed by Treaty with the United States Government that their removal would be to lands that would forever be sovereign Indian lands. This held true only until the greed of the American s found need for this land.

The Nations of the world stand by in fear, as if frightened by a large serpent and the threat of its fangs, as the American aggressions continue, forgetting that in time even they will be challenged to withdraw their sovereign rights or be attacked.

Just as the Roman, Spanish, and British Empires before it, the United States Empire has grown in military and monetary strengths to the point that it has placed itself in the position of making the Nations of the World it s subjects. All the Empires before it continued to consume the rights of others until enough courage was borne in them to stand up to the aggressions. Even the American Empire had its beginning by standing against what was then the greatest Empire in the World. And Its victory was only achieved only with the aid of others tired of that Empire.

The United States policies of forcing Nations to adhere to her rule have only served to tear down and weaken those Nations who have succumbed to it. Financial crisis, increased organized crime and overall discontent have been the only blessings the populations of these Nations have seen as a result of adapting to American standards.

The United States Government conceals its aggressions under the cloak of words like World Peace and Human Rights. It is past time for the Nations of the World to realize this deception. It is time for the International Community to follow the lead of the courageous little Nation of Yugoslavia and say the line is drawn here! And to stand in support of this proud Nation.

The time has come for the International Community to begin demands that the American Government practice what it dictates to others in Its own lands before meddling in the affairs of other sovereign Nations. And time for those American Indians who wear the uniform of those who slaughtered their own Ancestors to cease aiding in these aggressions and instead stand up for the rights of their own People. Time for all those facing the intimidation of the American lead aggressions to stand together in opposition to it. All must keep in mind that even the school yard bully becomes meek when faced with a group of those he torments."

BELGRADE, Apr. 28 - Never a nation to keep its head down, especially not when under attack by foreign empire, the Serb black humor is thriving even as NATO's bombs are raining death and destruction across the country. Here's a mock tourism ad which a TiM reader from Belgrade has sent to us:

payment and 50% per S-300 payment. We take credit cards -

"American Regret", "NO VISA", "Blast'em Hard".


We guarantee that NATO Alliance will strictly respect their

promise and continue intensive bombing of Yugoslavia in order

to improve Yugoslav tourism, since all the other sources of

development are damaged or endangered, and since there are

no other reasons to continue this aggression. If there would be

no bomby-days during your staying in Yugoslavia, or if some

break happens, and if you don't see at least 10 civilians

killed per two nights of bombing - money back guarantee.


The people of Yugoslavia would gladly share their daily food

portions and supplies, but we strongly recommend you to

bring your own food and luxuries such as peanut butter, caviar,

maple syrup etc. UNLESS you want to experience the full

impression of being a Serb in their own country.

If you're not sure with whom are you talking to on the field

and if you can't recognize his nationality, which is a common

thing, you may know who the Serbs are at any occasion - an

average Serb will never say "I did NOT had sexual relationship

with that woman."


This program is supervised by most of the world humanitarian

organizations such as EU, NATO, UN, OSCE, MMF, KLA, KKC, ETA

and many others, for a sake of globalization, peace, stability

and democracy.
