To Kill a Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia

2 Reviews
For 78 days in 1999, US and NATO forces launched round-the-clock aerial attacks against Yugoslavia, killing upwards of 3000 people in the name of humanitarianism. This book challenges mainstream media coverage of the war and uncovers hidden agendas behind Western talk and a decade-long disinformation campaign waged by western leaders.

Before considering this book, and other books that have similar approach, as eye-opening and factual, I would like to raise a question. In Kosovo, there are 1300 people that were kidnapped by the serbian police and paramilitary forces, that were never brought back to their families for a proper burial. They were mostly women, children and old people. There are over 17 thousand civilian victims that were taken from their homes, were sent behind nearby hills and were executed, most of them were sent with fridge-trucks and sunk in the rivers of Serbia or buried in mass graves, moving bodies from one place to another trying to hide their tracks. There are thousands of women that were raped, lucky ones survived, many were murdered and a large number of these victims were mutilated post-mortum.Over a million were displaced in Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and inside Kosovo. These facts alone, forget the discrimination that took place for decades, aren't sufficient to feel ashamed when writing this kind of book? Saying what Parenti has said, playing devil's advocate (when I say devil's I mean it literally), is like saying Hitler was right, Mussolini was right, Stalin was right and all their victims are guilty and they deserved to die. You really have to either be naive, or paid very well, to waste paper in such allegations.

tidy little portrait of how US public relations firms managed perception of the Yugoslav wars on behalf of imperials interests. I still see plenty of well-meaning liberal types parroting the US ... Read full review
