Cruel Irony Afflicts Unveiling Of Monument To Croatian Freedom Fighter

It is a cruel insult and cruel irony that on Armistice Day, 11th November, when World War I allies mark with respect and piety those who gave their lives for freedom and their emblems, police authorities in Zagreb, Croatia, go about disrupting remembrance gathering organised for the unveiling of the monument to the legendary Zarko […]

Pot Calls Kettle Black – Agrokor Corruption And Political Wile In Croatia

High corruption risks and practices, political patronage and nepotism, and inefficient bureaucracy rolled over from former communist days are among the challenges that Croatia has not truly dealt with yet.

Tito’s Crimes Should Never Be Forgotten

The leaders of Croatia’s antifascist movement repeatedly identified themselves with Tito. They offered no apologies for Tito’s methods and the Communist Party’s crimes. Tito, in fact, behaved as Communists do, promoting revolution by the mass liquidation of potential opponents, by subverting every independent institution, and by bringing all power within the Party’s control.

Competitive Victimhood – Injustice For Victims Of Communist Crimes

  All good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what happened to them and pursue justice for them.
