      To Kill A Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia

      For ten years, US and NATO forces have
      waged a campaign to dismember Yugoslavia,
      including 78 days of round-the-clock aerial
      attacks in 1999 that killed or injured
      upwards of six thousand people. Drawing on a
      wide range of published and unpublished
      material (mostly Western sources) and
      observations gathered from his visit to
      Yugoslavia in 1999 shortly after the bombings,
      Michael Parenti challenges the mainstream
      media demonization of Yugoslavia and the
      Serbs, and uncovers the real goals behind
      Western talk of "genocide," "ethnic cleansing,"
      and "democracy."

      To Kill A Nation reveals a decade-long
      disinformation campaign waged by Western
      leaders and NATO officials in their pursuit of
      free-market "reforms." The political and
      economic destabilization of Yugoslavia
      continues today, Parenti shows, as does the
      forced privatization and Third Worldization of
      the entire region.


      What they are saying about TO KILL A
      NATION: The Attack on Yugoslavia:

      "Parenti has written a brilliant critique of the
      news reports on Yugoslavia published in the
      respectable press. Each chapter provides a
      detailed refutation of the propaganda myths
      that justified NATO's war. This is by far the
      most compelling account in print."

      - James Petras, co-author of Empire or Republic?

      "A fierce, elegantly constructed elegy not just
      for the lives sacrificed in the Balkan wars, but
      for concepts of national sovereignty and
      constitutionality ... ... he writes with a taut
      cadence that exudes conviction. Extremely
      disturbing, but, for the brave, jolting and
      necessary reading."

      - Kirkus

      "To Kill a Nation is the best explanation of the
      great crime NATO committed and what it will
      mean for our future. It is full of insights on the
      role of US militarism and media
      disinformation in the service of corporate
      profits."

      - Sara Flounders, editor and co-author of NATO in the Balkans

      "THERE IS A GROWING CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE WORLD OF THE NEED TO UNITE
      THE FORCES OF RESISTANCE"

      Slobodan Milosevic



      Slobodan Milosevic wrote a Preface to the
      Yugoslav/Serbian edition of the Michael Parenti's
      book TO KILL A NATION - THE ATTACK ON
      YUGOSLAVIA that just appeared from the press
      in Belgrade.

      The book appeared as a result of the initiative and
      work of a group of patriots, which included the
      private publisher MEDIAGRAF, who financed the
      edition. President Milosevic gladly accepted the
      request of the group to write a preface.

      To order a copy of the book, one should contact the
      publisher:

      English translation of the President Milosevic's
      preface (full text) is given below.




      PREFACE TO YUGOSLAV EDITION



      I congratulate all those people who gave their
      contribution to translating and publishing of the
      book - TO KILL A NATION - THE ATTACK
      ON YUGOSLAVIA - in our country. Its author,
      Michael Parenti, is an American to whom every
      true veracious inhabitant of the Planet ought to be
      grateful for the great courage and ability to see and
      understand the events that marked the last decade
      of the twentieth century.

      His fellow country man, Ernest Hemingway, wrote
      in 1948 in the introduction to his novel "Farewell to
      Arms" (which was, actually, published for the first
      time in 1929):"..wars are created, caused and
      started by the economic differences, and they are
      waged by the pigs which are trying to benefit from
      them".

      For the killing of Yugoslavia, all media, political,
      economic and military means were used.

      The war against Yugoslavia was conducted on
      behalf of the great powers (Vatican, Germany,
      America...) because Yugoslavia stood in the way
      of their interests. It stood as an obstacle to the goals
      of the new world oppressors, the new colonialism.
      It represented "a bad example" for all those
      countries and peoples who wished to stay free and
      independent, and who wish to have the
      international relationship on the equality basis.

      The powers which preempted the name - the
      International Community, only had understanding
      for those who supported them. They didn't even
      want to hear for the ones who didn't share their
      point of view and for the ones opposing the New
      World Order.

      The International Community, meritorious for the
      breaking of Yugoslavia, encouragement of extreme
      nationalism in all Yugoslav republics (especially in
      Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina) and responsible
      for the national conflicts, accused others for such
      actions; the ones that stood as an obstacle to their
      intentions, the ones who were the victims of these
      intents - it accused Serbs for the evil which it itself
      caused and performed.

      This was not just the immorality of the
      International Community, that is, of a certain part
      of it which advocated such immorality, but it was a
      crime of that certain part of the International
      Community as well. In a certain way this was a
      crime towards Croats and Muslims too, because
      they were pushed back to the past, to irrational
      nationalistic savagery. But, this crime, targeted
      against Serbs, was the greatest of all crimes ever
      directed towards any of the peoples in the second
      half of the twentieth century in Europe.

      Even the military support and involvement of
      Islamist extremists bothered no one despite they
      were the first Mujahideens ever appearing in the
      military conflicts in the European domain till that
      time. Nor was the military support of the regular
      Croatian Army given to the Croatian military units
      in Bosnia-Herzegovina of any interest to anyone.

      It was only Serbia's material and moral help to the
      Serbian population living in warring
      Bosnia-Herzegovina that was causing rage and
      disgust of the so-called International Community
      to such extent that actions against "tyrannical and
      militant" political authorities in Belgrade were
      immediately taken, being in the shape of brutal
      economic and all other sorts of sanctions which
      were imposed to the just reorganized FR
      Yugoslavia, along with the military intervention
      against Serbs in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1995 and
      against FR Yugoslavia in 1999, in the collaboration
      with the Albanian terrorists and separatists. Today
      Serbs in Croatia and Serbs in Bosnia-Herzegovina
      and Serbs in Serbia and all Serbs in general are
      guilty for the crimes of which they were the
      victims.

      The war against Yugoslavia was and still is waged
      without any moral scruples. Illegal "Court" in The
      Hague is one of the means of that war and the
      proof that it (the war) is still ongoing.

      But the events, contrary to the intentions of the
      creators of the New World Order and of The
      Hague "Court", show every day that there is a
      growing consciousness in the World of the need to
      unite the forces of resistance to the new oppressors.

      Michael Parenti is among those people who
      undoubtedly gave great personal contribution to
      that resistance.



      The Hague, October 17, 2002
