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. It has often been said, and I agree, that until Croatia’s left and those operationally associated with communism in former Yugoslavia acknowledge how evil communism had been we will continue to live in […]

No Fading Of Memory For Communist Crimes

To not give due attention to communist crimes in former Yugoslavia during and post-WWII is as evil as committing them. According to Rudolph J. Rummel – a US based world authority on communist crimes, mass murders committed in the name of the state, the body count attributed to communist Yugoslavia mass murders goes beyond the […]

Independents For Croatia – Impress

It’s often been said that if the law won’t do it, the people will!

Croatia: Bell Tolls For Yugoslav Communists

  The enduring determination of Croatia’s defenders – war veterans from 1990’s Homeland war – in rejecting the still-present communist mindset in the governance of the country and the growing swell of smaller or new political parties and their followers designed to “change Croatia away from communist heritage” in essence mean that the bell tolls […]

Croatia: Denials Of Communist Crimes Dictate Profound Changes
