Genocide documents concealed

The former official spokesperson for the Hague tribunal’s chief prosecutor provides a systematic review of the way in which minutes of Serbia’s Supreme Defence Council, that might provide evidence against Serbia for genocide at Srebrenica, have been concealed.

Letter from Georgia

Alone, without international support, Georgia will not be able to overcome current crisis and threat of annihilation since we are fighting against the regime that will use unacceptable means to achieve its goals.

Making crime banal

Torov’s argument for the vital importance – in Serbia’s own interest – of ensuring that the arrest of Radovan Karadžić leads to a real settling of accounts with the past

The Macedonian tragedy

The inability of the European bureaucracy to deal with crisis situations, and to rein in Greek nationalist arrogance and swagger, has only strengthened Greece’s potential for blackmail. 

Serbian salad

In Politika’s March 8th issue, Zorica Tomić – presented to the readers as ‘university professor, expert on culture’ – responded to the invitation to help the Serbs find themselves.

Historical revisionism

We have now returned to anti-fascism, but not because of its values; not because it is a system of values that has defined the modern world; and not because it is a bastion of defence of individual rights against collective ideologies endangering freedom – but in order to flatter a great power.

Serbia’s past and future

I have a certain confidence in the people of Serbia. This is hard, thanks in the first instance to the fact that we are emerging from an immense evil, the responsibility for which lies with society but also with every individual, including ourselves, the two of us now talking to one another.

Four times there and back

In 1912, when Serbia and its allies headed off to the First Balkan War against the Ottoman Empire, it went to war with two publicly stated war goals. The first goal was expansion to the south, to Kosovo and Macedonia, and the other equally important goal was to getting exit to the Adriatic Sea through northern Albania.

Behind the curtain

This is the realism I speak for, not to get carried away with emotions, not to get carried away with moralizing, to be aware of this huge battle which is currently taking place and in which we are participating.

The melodrama of politics

What graced Politika in better and more professional times – seriousness and analyticity – in the editorial version of Ljiljana Smajlovic attained the features of tabloid-like plunking, demonizing the regime’s opponents and irresponsible name calling.

A suspicious person

Ljubisa Ristic’s gesture of naming the stages after his former partners who were his ideological opponents in the late 90’s was actually a fetishization of his own past. In that sense, the Secerana (Sugarmill) was precursor of a different, much more ambitious fetish town, the one on Mokra Gora.
