Hate-Oh NATO

From Ilic Branko:

On this day 30. May, 1999.: NATO committed a horrible crime on a bridge in Varvarin, Serbia In that attack were killed 10 civilians, while 16 of them sustained serious injuries. The first attack killed three people and at least five wounded. A few minutes later, the aircraft returned and fired two more missiles that left seven people dead who in the meantime come to the bridge to help the victims of the first attack.

Two Years, Two Million Tears

I cannot believe that it will be two years tomorrow since Robo left my life forever. Sometimes it seems as raw and painful as if it happened just yesterday. Some days — most days, actually — I go through my daily routine with Robo tagging along in the back of my thoughts and in my heart.

Burek.com: Now Entering Its Second Decade!

Huge congratulations, hugs, kisses, backslaps, all go out to my friend, Ivan, founder and curator of the largest Internet forum in Serbia, Burek.com, celebrating its 11th year today. The forum grew from being just a tiny spark of imagination in early 2002 to the thriving behemoth forum (it’s the largest forum running on Simple Machines Forum software) it has become today, with over 1.7 million registered users. It’s been a long path of personal commitment, sacrifice, sweat and tears. But I hope my friend thinks it is all worth it. Congratulations, buddy. You done good.

Talking About NATO

Today marks a very unpleasant and shameful anniversary; the 14th anniversary of the start of the NATO bombing of the former Yugoslavia, which lasted until June 10, 1999. While Serbia and her people have risen from the ashes and moved forward, this travesty of human justice and flagrant abuse of power by both NATO and the U.S. should never be forgotten.

[The NATO] bombing was an act in flagrant contempt of international law, and criminal under that law.

~ Walter Rockler, Former Nuremberg Prosecutor
