I always said they'd never find him guilty of genocide, the prosecution in the trial suffered set back after set back. With only a few months to go finding him guilty on anything but the minor charges was looking more and more unlikely.
Now just a few days ago he's found dead, apparently of natural causes.
This is an absolute disgrace. His requests for medical treatment were all denied. An autopsy on his body was also denied - however due to public backlash a closed door autospy is now being carried out.
Not long ago he had sent a letter to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
They would like to poison me. I'm seriously concerned and worried.
His letter was based on a medical check-up he had on January the 12th - which found large quantities of "strong drugs only used for treating leprosy or tuberculosis".
It would not surprise me one bit if he was murdered, several other key people in the trial have also died. As I said above the case was looking more and more unlikely of proving anything. All the mass graves turned out only to have Serbian solders - or worse yet for the prosecution Serbian civilians.
No traces of ethnic cleansing of Albanians was found at all in Kosovo - the only traces of genocide being that of Serbs themselves - murdered by the KLA - who were financed by Washington and by Al Qaeda. Which is why the Yugoslav forces moved in - to defend the Serbian civilians. What myself and other Marxists have been saying all along. The KLA was doing all the killing.
Obviously if the truth came out it would be a disaster, as the trial looked more likely to end this way the only way to stop it would of been to bump Milosevic off - just before Clinton was suppose to give evidence too.
The Hague Tribunal would be in ruins if they couldn't get a guilty verdict.
It's just a shame Milosevic will go out vilified by private media in the west, who dubbed him the butcher of the Balkans, when all he tried to do was defend Yugoslavia from Western attemps and finally success to destroy the country. In the media it was always portrayed as Serbian nationalism. Yet the demonstrations in the streets clearly showed the crowds shouting Yugoslavia - not Serbia.
It's also an interesting fact that Serbia is the most multi-ethnic country out of the rest of former Yugoslavia, the other main member states are very ethnically one sided, and devoid of Serbs.
Does the evidence fit what the private media and governments have been saying? No it does not. A nationalist Serbia would be devoid of other ethnic groups, not the other way around.
Milosevic said in 1989:
Serbia has never had only Serbs living in it. Today, more than in the past, members of other peoples and nationalities also live in it. This is not a disadvantage for Serbia. I am truly convinced that it is its advantage.
Citizens of different nationalities, religions, and races have been living together more and more frequently and more and more successfully.
Milosevic was guilty of crimes against the working class for which he should face a life sentence, but what he did was far less worse than thosed who destroyed Yugoslavia.
When is Bill Clinton, Madeline Albright, Tony Blair and Robin Cook going to face trial for what they did and supported, when are all the KLA leaders going to be put on trial for genocide?
