The Relentless Betrayal

Great article from Mishka Gora – and again – Happy 21st Birthday Croatia!

Eyes of the Mind

Today, the eighth of October, marks twenty-one years of Croatian independence, twenty-one years since Croatia severed its last remaining ties with Yugoslavia.  It is Croatia’s twenty-first birthday, so to speak, its coming of age.  And this Friday, the twelfth of October, is General Ante Gotovina’s birthday, his seventh in the United Nations penitentiary.

The two commemorations are not unrelated.  For, without the military leadership of General Gotovina, Croatia’s independence may well have remained incomplete.  If the experience of neighbouring Bosnia is any indication of what Croatia’s fate might have been, then one can only conclude that it too could have been divided into two like Germany during the Cold War, its occupied territories bestowed upon the aggressors and given an unjust legitimacy by the international community.  Indeed, had it not been for General Gotovina, the uneasy peace that came to Bosnia with the Dayton Accords may never have been achieved…

    I agree with you Mishka on this writing. On my visit to Ovcara and vukovar I was filled with such sadness. One has to wonder why no one was held responsible for all of the deaths that occurred in Ovcara. What really breaks my heart is all of these people thought they were going to be freed and not harm. This is such a tragedy that occurred in Vukovar that to this day makes me very angry. Far to often when people speak of the homeland war we sometimes forget to remember those who perished in Ovcara.

    The Hague | The Netherlands

    Everyone should send a letter to the Hague demanding our generals be freed. We the Croatian people have a right to have our voices heard and correct the misguided adventures of this court. Please forward this to ever Croat you know.
