| THE REAL SITUATION IN KOSOVO
Our thinking on the tragedy of Kosova must be well-thought out. There
is a group in America which has a slavish mentality towards the U.S. government.
As soon as the U.S. government does something seemingly friendly towards
Muslims, this group starts issuing support statements for the U.S. government.
This group's activities seriously mislead the Muslims during the tragedy
of Bosnia but instead of learning a lesson, this group is again engaged
in the same slavish behavior.
Pictures speak for themselves
SITUATION ON THE GROUND IN KOSOVA
News reports agree that a large Serb military force is in Kosova carrying
out genocidal actions, burning villages and uprooting the population. The
Serb military action had caused massive suffering BEFORE NATO intervened.
Nothing was done to pre-empt the Serb action. Now, during the NATO action,
the Serb military has stepped up its actions inside Kosova. Tens of thousands
of people have fled. The total number of refugees is now 500,000.
Thus the NATO action has not saved and will not save Kosova. We know
how the process works from the way it went in Bosnia. After the Kosovars
have been devastated and made dependent on international charity, the U.S.
perhaps will be able to "stop the slaughter." The Kosovars are
actually being sacrificed to give America the excuse to intervene. THE
The attack on Serbia is still very mild. Only 40 missiles have been
fired (as compared to 400 fired at Iraq in one night.) I hope the U.S.
continues to attack and I hope the Serbs fight back. Thus if the U.S. gets
seriously involved in military conflict in Yugoslavia, the Muslim world
will get some respite. The Serbs deserve punishment. Their forces are butchers
and mass murderers. Perhaps they will be punished in this action and get
something of what they deserve.
WHY?: THE STRATEGY BEHIND US INTERVENTION
The U.S. is getting involved owing to three important strategic reasons:
1. TO CLAIM FRIENDSHIP FOR MUSLIMS and DIVIDE ARAB FROM NON-ARAB MUSLIMS:
The pro-Israeli policies of the U.S. have alarmed the Muslim world. The
attacks on Iraq alienated Muslims in America and around the world. The
support for tyrannical regimes like those of Algeria, Egypt and Jordan
and the attack- plus-sanctions on Sudan alienated Islamic groups. Now with
U.S. support for Kosova: i. Puppet U.S. regimes (like Bahrain and Saudi
Arabia) will be able to tell their people that U.S. is not against Muslims.
ii. The non-Arabs will feel that US hostility to Arab Musims is not proof
that the U.S. is against Muslims.
2. GREECE and TURKEY ARE BOTH MEMBERS OF NATO. Also they have historic
mutual animosity. The U.S. feels that if the Kosova tragedy overflows (into
Macedonia, Albania, etc.) the effects could be felt in Turkey and Greece.
If the Greeks and Turks fight, the entire US position on Russia's southern
flank will be eroded if not destroyed. a. Turkey is also the US/Israeli
bulwark against Islam and Arab Islamic power. If Turkey is drawn into Islam
owing to tragic events in the Balkhans, the entire Israeli northern flank
will be bare. 3. GEOPOLTICS OF YUGOSLAVIA: For more than 5 decades, Yugoslavia
has been within the Russian sphere. Geopolitically the U.S. is gaining
rapidly if it can gain a foothold in the area. Already there are 30,000
U.S. troops in Bosnia. If the same happens in Kosova, the U.S. will have
outflanked Russia in the Balkans. Remember that Yeltsin is a passing phenemenon.
The U.S. is very concerned about possible reversal of fortunes in Russia.
The time is limited for the U.S. to make is gains. Hence it is moving fast.
THE WARSAW MODEL:During the Second World War, when the tide turned against
Germany, the massive Soviet armies waited patiently on the east side of
the Vistula river, outside Warsaw. Inside Warsaw, under the noses of the
Soviets, the Germans wiped out the Polish resistance. Once the Poles had
been crushed, the Soviets moved forward and "liberated" Warsaw.
Poland was a Soviet puppet for decades tilll the Afghan Jihad weakened
the Soviets. This Warsaw model is well understood by the U.S. and its allies.
They followed its pattern in Bosnia and are now following it in Kosova.
We should spend our energies and efforts in mobilizing in getting Muslim
nations to fight in Kosova. The U.S. says it is afraid to lose men on the
ground. There are thousands in the Muslim world who would volunteer to
go to Kosova. The governments of Muslim countries can push the U.S. to
land Muslim troops in Kosova. If the U.S. does not cooperate, the facade
of "caring for Muslims" will be blown.
