Esta é só uma pequena entrada neste blog, uma vez que agora não há tempo para mais, mas aqui fica o meu repúdio pela forma leviana como mais uma vez são tratados pelos “media”, temas importantes como este.
Desde o seu início que a guerra entre Sérvios e Bósnios foi tratada como uma campanha de desinformação levada a cabo pelos media ocidentais, especialmente e como não podia deixar de ser, pelos EUA e Reino Unido, claro que os outros sem qualquer atitude crítica vão a trás sem pestanejar, sem se questionarem.
Só para dar um pequeno exemplo do que falo aconselho a leitura do site que desde sempre tem acompanhado esta temática:
In August 1992, millions of people were shocked to see photographs of a supposed Bosnian Serb death camp.
The photos were produced by ITN, the British TV news giant, from footage shot by an ITN film crew which spent a long day in Bosnia. The film was shot in a refugee center in the town of Trnopolje. (Pronounced Tern-op-ol-yay)
Most of the photographs featured a tall, emaciated man with a deformed chest, stripped to the waist, apparently imprisoned behind barbed wire. Do you remember those pictures?
They were a hoax.

Interessante são também algumas das afirmações de Carla del Ponte e o seu livro, The Hunt: Me and War criminals.
In 2008, Del Ponte published a book “The Hunt” in which she collected rather extensive evidence that the Kosovo Albanians were smuggling human organs of kidnapped Serbs after the Kosovo war ended in 1999. Her book created an international controversy.
The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia had said of Del Ponte’s allegations: “The Tribunal is aware of very serious allegations of human organ trafficking raised by the former Prosecutor, Carla Del Ponte, in a book recently published in Italian under her name. No evidence in support of such allegations was ever brought before the Tribunal’s judges.”
On 4 April 2008 the Human Rights Watch wrote to Kosovar Prime Minister Hashim Thaci and Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha in request to open investigations on the matter under international supervision. By 3 May both had ignored the letters and instead publicly rejected del Ponte’s claims as unsubstantiated. On 5 May 2008 the Human Rights Watch confirmed the allegations from Del Ponte’s book and issued a public call to Tirana and Pristina for cooperation.
The reported alleges the victims were more than 400 Serbs missing from the war. “Serious and credible allegations have emerged about horrible abuses in Kosovo and Albania after the war,” said Fred Abrahams, HWR Senior emergencies researcher of HRW.
“ According to the journalists’ information, the abducted individuals were held in warehouses and other buildings, including facilities in Kukes and Tropoje. In comparison to other captives, some of the sources said, some of the younger, healthier detainees were fed, examined by doctors, and never beaten. These abducted individuals – an unknown number – were allegedly transferred to a yellow house in or around the Albanian town of Burrel, where doctors extracted the captives’ internal organs. These organs were then transported out of Albania via the airport near the capital Tirana. Most of the alleged victims were Serbs who went missing after the arrival of UN and NATO forces in Kosovo. But other captives were women from Kosovo, Albania, Russia, and other Slavic countries. ”
United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo’s published official forensic report from 2004 also confirms Del Ponte’s allegations.
In 2008 the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe authorized Carla Del Ponte to lead a formal investigation and employed a watcher to report her findings to the Parliament.
