   When I spoke of the socialist revolution in Yugoslavia, I meant
obviously -- calm down and look at the context -- the revolution which
led to the formation of a workers state in Yugoslavia, in the 1940ies.

   The most outspoken monarchist in Yugoslavia happens to be Vuk
Draskovic, who was in a coalition government with the Milosevic family
and who stayed out from the DOS grouping.

   I leave aside the rest of your diatribe. You have a very narrow
view of things from over there, you are too much worried by the fate
of the Milosevic gangster clique and their comptitors, while
socialists look at the working class how it is struggling to recover
its independence.

   The question for you remains: which side are you on? With the
Yugoslav working people against imperialism, independently of their
leadership, or with the Milosevic nationalist gangster clique against
the Yugoslav people?
