[Marxism] Press coverage of Milosevic's death

Slobodan Milosevic has died in struggle, which will have him live 
forever in the hearts of those who he fought for:  the downtrodden of 
the world.

If any additional proof were necessary, the way the press manages 
this murder is convincing enough, I think.

Arg main newspaper, _Clarín_ (partially owned by the Vnzl media 
tycoon and anti-Chávez  escuálido  Cisneros), headlined today:

"Milosevic:  the mysterious death of a genocide".

The whole (and false) story is within the main body of this 
newspaper, but most people will simply stay with the "Former 
president of ex Yugoslavia was found dead in his cell for reasons 
still not known.  He was called "the butcher of the Balkans" and he 
promoted ethnic cleansing in four wars".

It is a badge of honor to be thus slandered by the Argentinean 
mainstream media.

On the opposite side of same first page, another headline reads 
"Iran:  Clarín in a country that menaces the globe", and goes on 
"What is it like to live, suffer and pray under the religious regime 
that defends with fist and teeth their nuclear plan.  What happens 
with women and with the power of the 'ultras'".

Many are expecting this month of March to trigger the so much 
expected global crisis unleashed by the decadence of imperialism.

Maybe this spurt of filthy hatred on the first page of Argentina's 
"liberal" newspaper is one of the signs on the wall.

Mane, mane, tekel upharsim.
