Bosnian committed suicide attack in Iraq - reports
Tuesday, 12 August 2014
August 12, 2014 | 12:32 | Tanjug
SARAJEVO -- Bosnian Emrah Fojnica, accused of involvement in an attack on the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo, has died in Iraq, "probably while committing a suicide attack"

The 23-year-old died on Friday, according to the Vijesti Ummeta website, which is close to radical Islamic groups in Bosnia-Herzegovina and elsewhere in the Balkans.

The website did not specify where Fojnica died, but said only that "according to available information, he went to Iraq to carry out a shahid operation and was killed with a vest on him" - which suggests he probably carried out a suicide attack using an explosive belt.

As reported by the Croatian Index website, Vijesti Ummeta also announced that Fojnica's father, when informed about his son's death in Iraq, welcomed it as "a martyr's death."

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota man was charged Wednesday with immigration fraud for allegedly lying on his immigration documents by concealing war crimes he committed during the Bosnian war in the 1990s.

Zdenko Jakisa, 45, appeared in U.S. District Court in Minnesota on one count of possessing unlawfully obtained documents. He was ordered detained, and another hearing was set for Monday. He will be appointed a public defender, according to court documents.

Authorities say that when he was filling out refugee and legal permanent resident applications, he didn't disclose that he had served in the armed forces of the Croatian Defense Council in Bosnia-Herzegovina and had gone to prison.

From Archive - Operation Balkan Storm: Here's a Plan

Here's how the Balkan crisis could unfold.

It is late January 1993. President Clinton decides it is in the American security interest to oppose Serbian aggression in the Balkans with force, in particular to permit the Bosnians to defend themselves. His advisers believe there is a third option beyond the choices President Bush claimed he faced -- either doing nothing or sending in hundreds of thousands of ground troops. Mr. Clinton's advisers develop a three-step plan based on the use of American competitive advantages.

The first step is coalition building. The U.S. should not act unilaterally -- that was the mistake we made in Vietnam -- yet the U.N. Security Council is deadlocked on the use of force, as is NATO. A coalition is possible only through ad-hoc arrangements. Three allies, Great Britain, France and Italy, must be included; they provide staging bases and a limited number of air, naval and ground forces which support a U.S.-dominated air power operation. The coalition arms and trains Bosnian forces, who conduct unconventional operations on the ground to recover their country.

Ana Filimonova: Clear Pland for destroying Serb National Corpus
Tuesday, 29 April 2014
April 26 | Srna

BANJALUKA, April 26 /SRNA/ - There are specific US and the EU plans to subjugate and destroy the Serbian national corpus and Republika Srpska, as they do not suit certain interests, the editor-in-chief of the Strategic Culture Foundation of Moscow, Ana Filimonova, said today in Banjaluka.


During a roundtable on “coloured revolutions as a tool of geo-political transformation,” Filimonova said that these plans are aimed at forming a unitary BiH and submerging Republika Srpska.

“This is why it is necessary to reveal such plans and protect the population of Republika Srpska so that they might not suffer the same fate as the people in the Ukraine. Republika Srpska, whose economy is not developed, should seek a partner in the East and increase its cooperation with Russia, because Russia is stretching out a helping hand,” Filimonova told reporters in Banjaluka.

CIA declassified: US, UK did not want to arrest Ante Pavelic
Wednesday, 23 April 2014
April 22, 2014 | InSerbia News

Recently declassified CIA document from the US National Archives, requested in 2000 but only produced 12 years later, establish that both the British and Americans were certain the Vatican was harboring a major Nazi war criminal, Ante Pavelic.

Ante Pavelic (14 July 1889 – 28 December 1959) was a Croatian fascist leader and politician who led the Ustase movement and who during World War II ruled the Independent State of Croatia (NDH), a puppet state of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany in part of the occupied Kingdom of Yugoslavia, pursuing genocidal policies against ethnic and racial minorities.

Seeing Germany’s collapse and aware that the Croatian army could not resist the Communists, Pavelic left Croatia on May 6 1945. The Pavelic family afterwards lived in the American Occupation Zone. Although Pavelić reported himself to American intelligence, neither they nor their British counterparts arrested him.

Dark Histories - Tony Abbott, the NDH and Australia’s Fascist Affair

Dark Histories
Tony Abbott, the NDH and Australia’s Fascist Affair
by BINOY KAMPMARK


There he goes again. While the Australian prime minister fantasises of a network of free trade alliances that do far more for bigger powers than they do for Australia, Tony Abbott has been lax with the historical record. This latest play with history may be idiosyncratic, the lapse one expects from the ill-considered. Or it might well be schoolboy ignorance, eyes fluttering in the hope of keeping votes in the bag. The political universe can be a mean spirited one.

The occasion was a speech given by a representative of Abbott, Craig Kelly MP. Being in Japan, Abbott had delegated the task of congratulating members of the Australian Croatian community in Sydney on Croatian independence attained in April 10. This was more than a bit awkward, given that April 10 was the date of the establishment of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) after the Kingdom of Yugoslavia ceased to exist under Axis rule in 1941. If ever you wanted to back some unsavoury company, you couldn’t do much better than officials and sympathisers of the NDH.
