Thinking the Unthinkable; On the Wrong Side in Yugoslavia?
The roughly 5000 unspeakable acts of murder and mayhem committed by Islamofascist terrorists on innocent people just since 9/11 have got me wondering – did we come in on the wrong side in the conflict between the Serbians (Christians) and the Bosnians (Muslims) in the former Yugoslavia, and have we and the western world gone after the wrong group of war criminals? I am well aware of the horrendous barbarities committed by the Serbians against the Bosnians and others, but do we really know what transpired to drive them to these acts before the conflict aroused our interest? I admit to having been skeptical when former President Clinton committed our military to protect the Bosnian Muslims, but I did decide to support him at the time.
What did we really know about this age-old conflict? After all, if one were not aware of the five times that Arab countries attacked Israel with the help and complicity of the Palestinians, and if we did not know how much of the condition of the Palestinians today can be traced to the actions of their Arab neighbors, one might be tempted to sympathize with their plight and consider the Israelis to be the aggressors. If one did not know that Muslims consider Jews to be no better than pigs to be killed and driven into the sea, one might be fooled into seeing some moral relevance in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
A few days ago I watched an excellent series that the History Channel presented on the horrors of 9/11. This event has transformed America and the world. Our civilization and the lives of our children and our grandchildren will continuously be at risk until we stamp out the madness of Islamic terrorism, and perhaps something was going on in and around Bosnia-Herzegovina that we did not really understand at the time. Were we on the wrong side? Did we betray our World War II allies and take the part of former Axis sympathizers in our ignorance of history? Have we also helped Albanian Muslims to colonize Kosovo as part of the world-wide Islamic plan to regain their lost empire?
I do not know the answers, but every day my acceptance of vengeful acts against the Islamic butchers grows.
