i cant understand how someone who suposedly sees
himself a progressive can defend a genocidal dictator
like Milosevic. but i think that shows how really
progressive this person is if seems he thinks
Milosevic is one more progressive. milosevic is just
an opportunist drunk with power like many party bosses
in the communist block who used the very murderous and
stupid nationalist issue to maintain himself in power
just like the right wing loves to do. to see milosevic
associating himself with quasi-fascist nationalist
groups in yugoslavia then it is almost incredible to
find a supposed marxist defending such a reactionary person.
