Chapter Summary

In 1999, the US national security statewhich has been involved throughout the world in subversion, sabotage, terrorism, torture, drug trafficking, and death squadslaunched round-the-clock aerial attacks against Yugoslavia for 78 days, dropping 20,000 tons of bombs and killing thousands of women, children, and men. The ultimate goal of US policymakers is the privatization and Third Worldization of Yugoslavia, as it is the Third Worldization of the US and every other nation. The mass rape propaganda theme was resuscitated in 1999 to justify NATO's renewed attacks on Yugoslavia. Some people argue that nationalism, not class, is the real motor force behind the Yugoslav conflict. With words that might make us question his humanity, the NATO commander, US General Wesley Clark boasted that the aim of the air war was to &t;demolish, destroy, devastate, degrade, and ultimately eliminate the essential infrastructure&t; of Yugoslavia.
