Actually Parenti hardly has anything to say about Milosevic as a socialist 
leader, although he is insistent that NATO's wars were intended to 
undermine a socialist economy. This seems hardly debatable. As far as Diana 
Johnstone is concerned, she is even less generous, regarding Milosevic as 
incorporating the best and the worst of all career politicians. In any 
case, I strongly urge John Cox to read Parenti or Johnstone's books. They 
are both first-rate.
