Milosevic dies in NATO prison

Yugoslav leader exposed U.S. war crimes in Balkans
By John Catalinotto

U.S. imperialism and its corporate media made a concerted effort to demonize Slobodan Milosevic while he was alive, charging him with crimes in a war of their making........

Milosevic turned the tables on the court and showed that Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Gerhard Schroeder, Gen. Wesley Clark and the rest of the NATO heads of state and government and their generals were the real “butchers of the Balkans” and the ones who deserved to be on trial for war crimes.

Sara Flounders of the IAC pointed out the ICTY had reason to desire Milosevic’s death:

“As the case was drawing to a close [Milosevic’s effective defense] presented a terrible dilemma for the court.”

...the ICTY failed miserably when it tried to prove to the world that Slobodan Milosevic was guilty of any of the crimes committed against the people of the Balkans in the 1990s.

For this reason, the IAC has joined the International Committee for the Defense of Slobodan Milosevic (ICDSM) to help carry out “an international, independent inquiry into the circumstances and cause of his death” and to ensure that “his family, his party and his supporters be party to that inquiry.”
