Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or the response to the German blitz on London, when the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima.

Or Hiroshima - for that matter, 70 000 dead on the day of impact. Or Nagasaki, 40 000 dead on the day of impact.

Or the 3 000 000 Vietnamese dead (mostly civilians) murdered by American carpet bombing, napalm or GI rampaging and burning of villages.

Or the US razing to the ground of Fallujah - a city of 420 000 people which today has only 25 000 inhabitants left. We don't yet know the true number of civilians killed by GIs because of the effective media blackout imposed by Central Command (that's free press).

Or Croatian operation Storm which drove out 250 000 Serbs while terrorizing and murdering thousands which never made it to Serbia.

Or NATO bombing of Serbian civilian infrastructure including hospitals, schools, bridges, markets... Yes markets in Kragujevac using cluster amunition - which is also against the Geneva convention.

All of these acts are barbaric and condemnable. My point is that you can pick out any one of these, air it on the media again and again and again to demonize your political adversary. And that's exactly what we have Srebrenica.
