NATO's Serbian chickens come home to roost.....



NATO is about to get sued by Serbia for using depleted uranium when it illegally bombed the hell out of Yugoslavia in 1999 in a successful attempt to break apart (Balkanize) the Communist nation.

Recall that on May 7, 1999, during the US-NATO bombing of Yugoslavia (Operation Allied Force), five US JDAM guided bombs hit the People's Republic of China embassy in Belgrade killing three Chinese reporters and outraging the Chinese public.

According to the U.S. government it was a mishap - the Pentagon maintained they used the 'wrong maps'.  Right......

President Bill Clinton later apologized for the bombing, calling it accidental. CIA director George Tenet testified before a congressional committee that the bombing was the only one in the campaign organized and directed by his agency.

The raid caused a dramatic rise in tension between China and the United States. An official statement on Chinese television denounced what it called a "barbaric attack and a gross violation of Chinese sovereignty".

Months after the US-NATO attacks on Yugoslavia the aerospace industry magazine Aviation Week & Space Technology reported that the European allies were upset because the US Pentagon would not share any of the satellite photos of what their planes had hit.  Europeans came out of that war saying they'd never put themselves in such a 'blind' situation again and began to build their own military space satellite network that they called Galileo (which sounds so nice and peaceful).

It's hard for American citizens to see that our foreign policy is barbaric but it is.  We've handed over the keys to Washington to a bunch of greedy, sick, warmongers who have taken their act global. 

It is truth telling videos like this one coming out of Russian media in the US that is helping to drive the anti-Russian campaign in Washington.  The US is not used to anyone calling it out for war crimes around the world.  RT is publicly doing just that and the deep state demands Russian media airing across the US be shut down one way or the other.  The US empire is collapsing as the world has become clearer about what Washington is really all about.

Now it's just up to the American people to figure it out and stop the evil nonsense.
