>Nuremberg War Crimes Trials 
>WASHINGTON-As the bombs, smart and dumb, fall ceaselessly on Serbia,
>Montenegrins and sometimes Albanians, on bridges, waterworks, electric
>generation plants and factories, and on trains, trucks and homes, the
>remorseless crusade for "humanitarianism" presses forward to the applause
>of journalistic and academic shills. To paraphrase the Roman historian
>Tacitus, we are busy creating a desert, which we can then call peace. 
>For the United States, alias "NATO," the planning and launching of this
>war by the president heightens the abuse and undermining of warmaking
>authority under the Constitution. (It seems to be accepted that the
>president can order his personal army to attack any country he pleases).
>The bombing war also violates and shreds the basic provisions of the
>United Nations Charter and other conventions and treaties; the attack on
>Yugoslavia constitutes the most brazen international aggression since the
>Nazis attacked Poland to prevent "Polish atrocities" against Germans. The
>United States has discarded pretensions to international legality and
>decency, and embarked on a course of raw imperialism run amok. 
>Our alleged concern with human rights borders on the ludicrous. We dropped
>twice as many bombs on Vietnam as all the countries involved in World War
>II dropped on each other. We killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in
>the course of that war. Very recently, in Central America, we sponsored,
>trained and endorsed the local armies - Guatemalan, Salvadoran, and
>Nicaraguan Contras - in the killing of at least 200,000 people. 
>We encouraged the Pinochet coup in Chile with the resulting killing of
>another few thousand or so people, including the democratically elected
>president. We saw nothing wrong with the Croat slaughter and expulsion of
>200,000 Serbs from the Krajina area. We have taken very little stand on
>the monumental slaughters of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of
>people in Africa. We have restrained the Iraqis from attacking Kurds but
>see nothing amiss in Turks attacking Kurds. We cannot even agree to
>abandon the use of land mines. 
>In reality when we, the self-anointed rulers of the planet, issue an
>ultimatum to another country, it is "surrender or die." To maintain our
>"credibility," we must crush any semblance of resistance to our dictates
>to that country. 
>P.S. Please, send us your comment about NATO aggression on Yugoslavia.
