1. "Ain't Gonna Go There!", Also,
Target Signs Spread in NATO's Capital
BRUSSELS, May 4 - A TiM reader from the NATO capital complemented a comment which we
had received from a U.S. military source with high-level contacts. Namely, both
German and Italian planners walked out of a NATO ground force planning committee meeting
with an, "(We) ain't gonna go there." Meaning into Kosovo.
TiM Ed.: Well, we're not sure that the Germans and the Italians would have necessarily
used such American slang, but we are quite certain that both nations knew they would have
their posteriors handed to them if they were to encroach upon the Serb territory. Again.
As Hitler and Mussolini also found out. Guess Bill Clinton and Gen. Wesley Kanne
Clark, both former Rhodes scholars from Arkansas, are still to read those pages of
European history. "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat
it," goes an old saw.
Meanwhile, back to that Brussels-based TiM reader, here's a message we received today:
"Working in the European Commission, I have put on my
door one of this target faxed to me by a friend. It shocked some people around, but I
resisted and now a second target appeared on another door.
This war is a crime against humanity, nothing less and it is
awful to live in a country participating in it.
The Serbs are the only Europeans left with a sense of honor - I
bow to them and pray for them. The only consolation left is the unity of all Orthodox
churches in condemning these bombing."
2. TiM Web Site Voted 33rd Among
Internet's Top 100 Sites
PHOENIX, May 4 - It just goes to show you what happens when one speaks God's truth. The
Truth in Media Web site has just been voted No. 33 out of the top 100 sites on the
Internet (out of how many millions of Web sites?). We wish to thank you, our loyal TiM
readers and supporters, for your votes. Here's a message which we have just received about
"You may have seen it earlier, but we wanted to let you

Well, almost. It is now a Runner Up, at #33 This chart is not compiled from traffic, but

3. New High Tech Weapons Cause New Types of
BELGRADE, May 4 - "We can turn the power off (to Serbia) whenever we need to, and
whenever we want to," arrogantly boasted the NATO spokesman, Jamie Shea, during
today's press conference at the NATO HQ in Brussels.
TiM Ed.: We are sure you can, Mr. Omnipotent Bigmouth (see the photos of the effects of
NATO's graphite bombs dropped near Nis,
Serbia, available at our Web site - just click on the Photo Album
section). But can you look at yourself in the mirror?
Here's a letter which we have just received from a doctor at the Yugoslav Military
Hospital, the best equipped and staffed medical facility in Yugoslavia, as far as this
writer is aware:
"In my professional career as a professor of
maxillo-facial surgery I have operated and helped in healing of many injured people. I
have treated all kinds of wounds, from arrow and spear wounds (Eritrea in 60's) to serious
reconstructions from car accidents and cancer. One of such reconstructive treatements
bears my name in the world's literature.
Before my retirement in 80's I have editored the world renown
journals, such as the Journal of Maxillo-Facial Surgery and the Dental Corps Int. I have
also published scientific papers in these and the other scientific journals abroad. I was
a founder and a long time head of the Maxillo-facial clinic at the VMA hospital in
Belgrade, the well known "Army" hospital, popular among the civilians. and
famous in the Balkans, the former Yugoslavia and recognized in the world. The VMA hospital
is a modern hospital built in 80's and has been damaged in the NATO bombing campaign on
Well, with that as an introduction, here's now the main
course served out by this world-renowned Serb doctor:
"We, the VMA hospital, treat the NATO cluster bomb
victims. This kind wounds was new even for the two experienced surgeons, Dr. Lazar
Davidovic and Dr. Dragan Markovic. They have operated for three weeks on Kosovo, Pristina
under extremely difficult conditions: no water, no electricity. These two cardio-vascular
surgeons have treated the injuries of small Sadrina, Albanian girl whose arm was saved in
spite of the difficult injury from the cluster bomb. Dr Davidovic and Dr Markovic reports
are full of previously unwitnessed injuries, such as victims' bones crashed to such an
extent so that they were pulverized by cluster bombs.
It should be recalled that cluster bombs are banned by the Geneva
Convention. However, they are intensively used in bombing all over Yugoslavia in the
lasting bombing NATO campaign."
Professor Dr Antonije Skokljev, Major General (ret.), former fead of the Maxillo-Facial
Surgery Clinic at the VMA in Belgrade
4. From a Celtic: Praise TiM's Work
SAN DIEGO, May 4 - And you thought that "Braveheart" was only a movie? It is
a real life scenario, reincarnated in a 1999 setting. In Serbia and Kosovo. Check out the
following message which we have received from Kelly Cowan, a TiM reader from San Diego,
California, but more importantly, a "Braveheart" of his own:
"Bob, thanks for keeping us all informed on this issue. I
and many other "conditional patriots" praise the work you are doing and your
bravery in going to Yugoslavia, while dodging bombs. It is the mark of a man with
integrity and heart.
Thus far, I have opposed this war only in terms of logic and
facts. Last weekend, I attended a Serbian Orthodox church service and put faces to those
dehumanized and demonized people. This strengthened my resolve to oppose NATO aggression
and added an unexpected element. I feel a kinship with these people and now better
understand the situation which led us all here.
These folks have courage and character none of us Americans could
even imagine. They have endured hardships even our revolutionary ancestors couldn't relate
to. They have defended their country against invaders since the day of it's inception.
They have been "ethnically cleansed" from Croatia and Bosnia, now from their
last stronghold first through mass immigration and now bombing and terrorism.
They have been called "Nazis" even though they lost a
significant proportion of their male population fighting off the SS Waffen's attempts to
occupy their country. They repelled the Nazis while outnumbered 10-1.
It seems lost on the Jewish-Americans running this war that
Serbia never oppressed the Jews. In fact, they have protected them at the times they most
They (the Serbs) have been called "communists," even
though they have fought off Stalin. They have been called "ethnic cleansers"
when they themselves have been victims of the mass purges because they were Christians.
They have even been accused of being drug-runners, even though they have battled the KLA
drug-running routes through their nation.
These people have been screwed by our nation. They have been
screwed by their neighbors, first as Hitler's allies, now as the allies of the
drug-dealing KLA separatists. They have been screwed by the Albanians they were so
tolerant of until the mass terrorism began. They have been tolerant of the complete
demographic shift and have endeavored to pay for the Albanians' average 9 kids per family.
They have been taxed to death to pay for Albanians'
infrastructure and social programs. So they finally object after being consistently
terrorized by these Muslims, who play innocent while harboring and shielding terrorists in
their villages, and allowing them to use said villages as staging areas.
I think Milosevic has been rather kind in his removal of them
before shelling KLA operations bases."
Kelly Cowan, California (Country: Independent Nation of Celtica, according to this
TiM Ed.: If you're a Christian, why not attend a Serb Orthodox Christian service in
your community next Sunday?
