APPARENT FRAUD BY PENTAGON

The U.S. mass media used a picture, print and electronic, supplied by the Pentagon, showing three U.S. soldiers apprehended by Serb forces in Kosovo. The pictures, as used in the U.S., are an apparent fraud, in that they show the three soldiers with patches of insignia on their arm. Yet, the same three soldiers, in the same picture, seen by readers and viewers in Britain and elsewhere in Europe, show the soldiers MINUS THE INSIGNIA PATCHES. THAT MEANS of course that the three were, as some suspected from the beginning, on an espionage mission inside the borders of Kosovo, a unit of Serbia. And meaning, that the U.S. Department of Defense doctored up the photos to mislead Americans.
From the beginning, knowledgeable sources contended that the three were used to stage an incident, and that the soldiers themselves likely did not know they were going to be so used. All this, to attempt to justify U.S. and other intervention into the Serb civil war. Sort of like the fraudulent Gulf of Tonkin incident used to justify American intervention into the civil war in Vietnam. And that episode cost the lives of more than 58 thousand Americans dead and hundreds of thousands of Americans wounded in body and mind in some one else's civil war. (When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke in April, 1967, that he planned to go to Vietnam to tell black GIs not to be involved in a civil war to kill yellow-skinned people -- that justified the American CIA, the FBI, and others of the American secret political police to assassinate Dr. King exactly a year later, for daring to mention not to intervene on someone else's civil war.)
Will an international tribunal some day make U.S. pay zillions of dollars of damages for apparent war crimes committed against a small nation in the midst of a civil war? And will this be a terrible tax on the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of Americans ordered to bomb Serbia? Stay tuned.
