Croatia – Persistent Grief For Victims Is A Call For Justice

Croatia’s Homeland War consequences are still unsettling – a lot.

Remembering Vukovar And The Smut Of Erdut Agreement

Serbia’s Spineless Thieves Of Truth

  There is no future without the past. If the past stands on false props, the future will be false. “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Among psychologists of today something like this known as the “illusion of truth” […]

Croatia: No Apology For Defending People And Country

Article 51 of the UN Charter clearly recognises “the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations” by anyone.

You can’t imagine such criticism – […]

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 […]

Reverence For Croatian Victims Of Serb Aggression: Vote Trashes Use Of Serbian Cyrillic In Vukovar

  This is a big move towards making solid steps for peace and healing of victims of Serb aggression and atrocities against Croats and non-Serbs in Vukovar in the early 1990’s. Those who oppose the “step” will call it by any other name except one that has even a tiny bit of positiveness in it; […]
