The U.S. Moves to Impose a Puppet Regime in Yugoslavia
by Michel Chossudvosky and Jared Israel
Yesterday we wrote an article analyzing the situation in Yugoslavia. Before
we could publish it, our analysis has been confirmed by events. We have
confirmed from an unimpeachable source that members of the "democratic"
opposition have been visiting Belgrade residents, threatening to murder them
if they voted in the runoff elections. (Our interview with one person who
received such a visit will be published shortly) Now there are incomplete
reports of the burning of the Yugoslav parliament - where the government has
a majority of seats - and the sacking of sections of Belgrade and murder of
citizens who don't support the opposition. These measures are intended to
bring a US puppet regime to power.
The article follows.
The evidence is mounting that the "Democratic" opposition strategy in
Yugoslavia, worked out under the guidance of Washington and Bonn, is not to
elect Mr. Kostunica President of Yugoslavia.. If it were, why wouldn't they
gladly participate in runoff elections, given that Kostunica has an admitted
10% lead.? One reason they don't want to participate is that most of the
approximately 40% of the electorate which did not vote in round one would
most likely vote against Kostunica in round two.
But apart from that, the main reason is that the president of Yugoslavia has
no power without a parliamentary majority. The elections gave the current
government a clear majority in both houses.
NATO's plan for Yugoslavia is to apply the most severe economic shock
treatment which requires domination of the government. The shock therapy was
admitted by Mr. Dinkic, chief economist for the opposition:
"we are thinking of adopting... a shock therapy in some areas, and mild and
gradual reforms in others," Dinkic told Beta. : Beta news agency, Belgrade,

The same was stated in law HR1064, passed by the US House of Representatives
a day after the elections. This law granted an additional 105 million to be
shared between the pro-NATO government of Montenegro ($55 million US) and
the leaders of the DOS ($50 million.) That money was released on an
emergency basis - Oct 1. It was immediately wired to the DOS bank accounts
in Budapest and then smuggled across the border in new US bills for
immediate use. to destabilize Yugoslavia.
The law ordered that the most draconian economic "reforms" be imposed on
Yugoslavia, ordered the breakup of Serbia into separate min-states, ordered
the imposition of complete "democratization", that is, adoption all measures
demanded by the US and ordered the hunting down of all people whom NATO
decides to accuse of being war criminals,
The violent economic "adjustment" and political destruction mandated by
HR1064 and outlined in the program of 'democratic" opposition itself are an
attempt to crush Yugoslavia as a force capable of resisting US domination of
the Balkans, to reduce it to an impoverished territory - a colony. .
These measures cannot be implemented unless NATO has full control of the
Yugoslav government including the army and police. (The other alternative,
invading a Yugoslavia run by a hostile government, is politically unfeasible
for NATO) .
Therefore the DOS has used the charge of "election fraud" - endlessly
repeated but never with any evidence - as an excuse to boycott the runoffs.
In contrast, the fraud involved in the US paying hundreds of millions of
dollars to the "democratic" opposition is never mentioned. This bribe money
violates the electoral laws of every country. Using the veneer of protesting
election fraud, the "democrats" are mobilizing all possible forces in an
attempt to seize power by force. These include pro-fascist Croatians and
pro-KLA Albanians who are the hard core supporters of the pro-NATO
Djukanovic government in Montenegro, they include , secessionists from the
Serbian province of Vojvodina and southern Serbia, young people who have
never worked and who are being fed trickles of cash from the several hundred
million dollars the US has pumped into opposition hands, people coerced by
superiors at work or by school headmasters to demonstrate, people bribed by
a taste of the vast sums of money the US has pumped into Yugoslavia
especially in the past two weeks, and people who have been fooled by the
massive, US funded campaign, by "independent" media, public relations firms
and election pollsters, into believing that their falling living standards,
caused by sanctions just as severe as those imposed on Iraq, are the "fault
of one man - Milosevich" and that the US-backed opposition will bring
prosperity. In fact they would bring the prosperity of the grave.
Because the truth is that countries like Bulgaria and Russia which have
swallowed the "democratic " bait are far poorer than Yugoslavia - even
though they are not suffering from sanctions. and were not yet bombed
The scenario is much like what occurred in Chile in 1973.. There was the
same sort of disruption of transportation and essential services including
electricity. There was the same effort to create the appearance of a
majority movement against Chilean Pres. Allende.. Events were staged which a
captive media misdescribed as popular protest, giving ordinary people the
impression that Allende was about to fall. At the same time, the
CIA-directed plan deprived the people of basic necessities, causing real
unrest. In Yugoslavia, the disruption of the supply of essential commodities
started before the election with a US-instigated rise in the price of bread
Under cover of disruption and "popular protest: the CIA overthrew President
Salvador Allende and installed a pro-US military junta headed by General
The strikes which crippled transport and food distribution in Chile were
funded by the CIA. The same is being attempted right now in Yugoslavia. Vast
sums of US tax payers money has been poured into opposition coffers in
Serbia. We know of $182 million. But this is only what is officially
admitted. What about CIA money, which the New York Times says is going into
Serbia "in suitcases full of cash"? What about money from the Soros
Foundation and other CIA-connected "charities"? This money is being used to
finance the miners' strike and to lure young people into the Western-created
group Otpor by giving them money and trinkets, like cellular phones. .
Of course, many Yugoslav people are disgruntled. one miner told the 'NY
Times': "I used to make $1500 a month. Now I make $80." Dishonest forces put
the blame for this on the government that is resisting US control. In fact,
the problem started because in 1989 a World Bank plan, overseen by a leading
member of one of the current 'democratic' opposition groups, closed over a
thousand Yugoslav business, devastating the economy. The wars and sanctions,
whose fault lies with the US and Germany, have further hurt the economy. The
Yugoslav government, routinely accused of being dictatorial, has tolerated
the creation of an immense Fifth Column in Serbia by the US government,
which has poured m8llions into the funding and training of what tare falsely
called "civil society" organizations. These organizations, funded through
the National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House, the USIA, the CIA and
the Soros Foundation, among others, pay thousands of people in Serbia and
maintain and entire "alternate" media with the latest equipment and high
salaries. This media then uses the problem caused by the US to sow
discontent among anyone who is susceptible.
The US effort to destroy Yugoslavia goes back to 1984. A U.S. National
Security Decision Directive NSDD133 entitled "United States Policy Toward
Yugoslavia. Labeled SECRET Sensitive has recently been de-classified. It is
a prescription for destroying Yugoslavia as an economic and political
Since the elections on 24 September, the Democratic opposition has met with
NATO officials in Sofia, Bulgaria. NATO Assistant Secretary General Paul
Klaiber was in Sofia and Bucharest for high level discussions on security
issues resulting from the elections. Barely reported in the media, an IMF
donors' conference was held behind closed doors, Two leading "democratic"
representatives presented their so-called "Letter of Intent", a plan for
imposing harsh economic measure on Yugoslavia, to their IMF and World Bank
leaders. And on the 4th of October, the Stability Pact for Southeastern
Europe was meeting under its so-called "Title III" which pertains to
"security issues." The elections and "transition" in Yugoslavia were on the
agenda. The press reports do not confirm that the two "democratic:
representatives stayed for these meetings. We suspect they did..
The ploy being employed now is to create chaos while dangling promises of
money and peace, instigate whatever elements - children ignorant of politics
and lured by money, secessionist elements, fascists, people under compulsion
from superiors - along with infiltrators from NATO armed forces disguised as
rebellious youths, to terrorize Yugoslav loyalists and create the impression
of popular revolt. Already we have learned that DOS activists are going
around Belgrade, threatening death to anyone who votes in the Sunday
elections. Further provocation may occur at any time. These "democrats" aim
to provide Washington and NATO with a pretext to intervene as "peacekeepers"
as they did in Bosnia.
In the meantime, not only are NATO war ships in the Adriatic, but foreign
troops are already on Yugoslav soil. British SAS special forces are training
paramilitary police in Montenegro to assassinate Yugoslav army officer,.
Money is being channeled to finance these groups..
What we are witnessing is nothing less than an attempt to install a
fascist-like government in Yugoslavia, to turn all of Yugoslavia into
Kosovo. Yugoslavia has stood up to the biggest bully in history, the US
government. Now it is time for all who oppose the creation of US/German
dominated world empire to stand up for Yugoslavia.
