The first above video, from nuwan.net shows the NATO bombing of the Grdelica bridge in the NATO war against Serbia. The footage stops just before the train is deliberately hit by the NATO bomb. 14 were killed in this senseless slaughter from the air. NATO claims it was an accident. The second video, from annatar, is for those who wish to learn the history of the NATO crimes against Serbia. It is mind-boggling that anyone anywhere still wants their country to be part of NATO after the devastation they caused in Europe. It's ok to cry...
Our translation from eadaily.com/ru with a commentary [and notes in square brackets] by Vince Dhimos follows.
About 13.5 thousand people were killed or went missing during the NATO war against Serbia known as the Kosovo war. It was apparently fought for no other reason than to punish the Serbian Orthodox for their brotherly association with the Russian Christians and for daring to fight back against the ethnic Albanian terrorists in Kosovo.
Just imagine if Russia had had at that time the military power it has today. Probably none of the urban devastation would have happened and Serbia would still be intact. Today, almost every one of the ancient churches in Kosovo, the cradle of Serbian Christianity, has been either destroyed or badly damaged by the Muslim terrorists who now rampage in that region. Ethnic Serbs are persecuted and live precariously. The Muslim terrorists enjoy the full protection of NATO, the US and the EU.
Here is a report on some of the destruction of Serbian churches since the war:
“Together with the 112 churches already destroyed or heavily damaged since the beginning of the UNMIK "peace mission" in June 1999, over 130 Orthodox holy shrines in Kosovo and Metohija have been destroyed or demolished.”
Now, to make matters worse, the Muslims in the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo want their own army, which will threaten the rest of Christian Serbia. Will the Russians help this time?
They will if invited. Russia does not invade countries – despite Western lies to the contrary.
Dear Reader, you saw how GW Bush’s war in Iraq led to the banishment, persecution and murder of the Assyrian Christians who had lived in relative peace with their Muslim neighbours for millennia. And you saw how the US-instigated wars in Iraq, Syria and Libya led not only to more persecution and death of Middle Eastern Christians and other minorities, but also to the mass migration of Muslims, many of them radical Islamists, to Europe, where they dilute and displace Christian culture and are allowed special privileges to impose their own culture, aided by local governments. This should raise all kinds of red flags as to the true intentions of the bipartisan US elitists who instigate and wage the wars in the Middle East and elsewhere and who govern the entire West. Yet, the absurd notion that this can all be changed by voting for one of the parties that wreaked this havoc in your lives, or that a member of the elite class and oligarchy can save the world still prevails. The fact is, without Russia’s intervention, starting in September 2015, there would have been no significant change in US and NATO policies anywhere. At that time, despite the phony "War on Terror," ISIS was about to drive the Syrian army into the sea. Without Russia, Syria would be inundated with ISIS head choppers and the US military would be saying it is unfortunately unable to stop them but “we are trying,” just as they now say about Afghanistan.
We have shown here that the very elites who brought on the destruction have been the ones to recognize the superiority of Russian power and have warned that it is well past time to negotiate instead of constantly provoking the Russians with sanctions and negative press.
Serbia needs a Russian military contingent
Russian military presence in Serbia will prevent military escalation of the conflict in Kosovo
The fact that the situation in the Balkans was included in the agenda of the December 17 meeting of the Security Council of the Russian Federation indicates that this region is a focus of Russian national security interests. In addition to the military-political problems associated with the expansion of NATO in the Balkans, the likely military exacerbation of the Kosovo conflict will lead to massive refugee flows, a sharp increase in the activity of terrorist and extremist groups, as well as increased drug trafficking. In provoking the bloody chaos in the Balkans, which threatens to collapse the EU itself, the Americans obviously aim to teach a lesson to their own European allies, who do not always follow the American course, and establish their position as a continental gendarme of Europe. But for Moscow, for which many European countries still remain economically important partners, such a scenario is completely unacceptable. Therefore, the Kosovo conflict now holds a special place in the sphere of the interests of the Russian Federation’s national security.
Adopted under the auspices of the United States in Pristina on December 14 this year, the decision to transform the Kosovo Security Forces into a fully-fledged Kosovo “army” essentially throws the military exacerbation of the Kosovo conflict into high gear. However, it is still possible to prevent a direct clash of the Serbian military with the Kosovo Albanians. This will require the creation of military-strategic parity, in which any armed provocations of Kosovo-Albanian separatists will be dealt a crushing retaliatory strike by the Serbian army. The main problem lies in the American military aid to Pristina [capital of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo], as well as the possibility of direct intervention in the conflict by the NATO military group on the side of the Kosovo Albanians, as already occurred in 1999. In this scenario, the Serbian army will not be able to cope with the military tasks assigned to it to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state. However, there is a way out of this dangerous situation that will minimize the likelihood of direct military intervention by the United States and NATO in a possible regional conflict.
This approach would be to deploy a Russian military contingent on the territory of central Serbia, to provide operational control of the situation and assistance to the Serbian military in the modernization and technical re-equipment of the country's armed forces. To date, the American military base Bondsteel, located on the occupied Serbian territory, has actually become the training centre for the shock fist of the Kosovo Albanians. A Russian military presence would be able to ensure parity in Serbia and the region, so that the incitement of military provocations with proxy [Muslim] Kosovo-Albanian separatists by the US and NATO would have negative consequences for the warmongers themselves. Creating a military balance in Serbia is necessary as a starting point for the further de-escalation of the Kosovo conflict, and for the protection of Serbian citizens living in the occupied territories [the Russian author is referring to Serbian territory actually occupied by the US and NATO. This will sound odd to Westerners who have been indoctrinated to think of NATO as an ally of the Serbs rather than an occupier, but indeed, it is occupation and it is dangerous to the interests of Serbs].
Currently, the EU foreign service with the support of the United States and NATO insists that the Serbian leadership sign a so-called “agreement on a general normalization of relations” with Pristina, which would become the basis for accepting a self-proclaimed Kosovo to NATO, the UN and other international organizations. The movement in Belgrade in the wake of Western demands is causes a split in Serbian society and great dissatisfaction in the Serbian Orthodox Church. The thousands of processions that took place in Belgrade on December 8 and 15 of this year clearly demonstrate that the social conflict in Serbia has turned into open forms of civil protest.
All these Serbian domestic political circumstances are an unfavourable backdrop for the visit of the Russian President to Serbia, on which official Belgrade actively insists. However, in the current situation, a coordinated reboot may occur if Belgrade decisively refuses to sign any kind of separate deals with Kosovo Albanians and requests Moscow to provide military assistance, including the deployment of Russian troops in Serbia to ensure the security of the country and the region.
