What they set out to achieve re the “Srebrenica Massacre” was a lie so big, so outlandish, that they meant to make it impossible to deny said Big Lie. And as we saw in our critique of Znet and Herman they have succeeded pretty well because even Herman cannot bring himself to deny their Big Lie. Now that IS success!
We have seen how even the Guardian which is notoriously hostile to the Serbs and supports the destruction of Yugoslavia accepted that the US Imperialists were working hand in glove with Islamofascism in Bosnia. Specifically with that of Izetbegovic!
What IS the game of the Imperialists from the US in these trigger points around the world?
If they are able to work so closely with the Islamofascists that would declare in rather unmistakable form that the differences between the US ruling class and the Islamist ruling class in Iran, Saudi Arabia and in the Gaza cum West Bank are non existent. In fact the US ruling class, (and throw in the EU ruling capitalist class as well), sees in Islam an ally in their common struggle against socialism and against national liberation movements, such as that represented by the Serbs and by the Jews in Israel. Of course there are Jews and there are Serbs who do ally with Imperialism but this does not negate the previous truth. There have always been traitors and collaborators.
There are many, many instances of this collaboration between the US (especially the CIA) and Fascist Islamists. There is a very strong unity in all of these events and in this history but unfortunately people are not made aware of this, indeed the very opposite, and it requires revolutionary Marxism in the form of Trotskyism to draw these together. On this theme the reader could do worse than look up some of the history of the destruction of the Indonesian Communist Party (which was non Marxist, Stalinist in fact) at the hands of the Suharto stooge of the CIA in the mid 60s. You will find there the same alliance with the Islamists on the part of the US ruling class.

Suharto, who was the brutal U.S.-backed military dictator of Indonesia from 1965 to 1998, is now dead. Here is the story of his bloody road to power — excerpted from a detailed analysis by the MLMRSG, called “The Destruction of the Indonesian Communist Party in 1965 and the Road Not Taken.” When the full text of this document is available online, we will announce it here on Kasama.

Afghanistan was the greatest example of the US Government working with Islamofascism for very counter revolutionary ends. As we shall see this analysis of what US Imperialism did in Yugoslavia has got direct application. It is by Jared Israel of Emperors New Clothes:

* 1985 *
Khalilzad was on the Board of a company called Friends of Afghanistan. Also on the Board was Zbigniew Brzezinski, the self-described mastermind of using Islamic fundamentalism in Afghanistan to attack Russia. [5D] Khalilzad taught at Brzezinski’s university, Columbia. Everything suggests Khalilzad was a Brzezinski protégé.
Below is a substantial excerpt from an Associated Press (AP) dispatch, entitled, “U.S. Provides $500,000 So Afghan Rebels Can Tell Their Story.”
Note that according to this dispatch, Congress proposed that Khalilzad’s organization, Friends of Afghanistan, teach the Afghan terrorists how to win international support by portraying those opposing them as human rights abusers. This technique is now a staple of U.S. strategy. (For example, the media demonized the Serbs in just this way.)
Here’s the excerpt from the AP dispatch:

U.S. Provides $500,000 So Afghan Rebels Can Tell Their Story
Associated Press, September 16, 1985, Monday, PM cycle; SECTION Washington; Dateline, By Joan Mower, Washington
Guerrillas in Afghanistan are about to get money from the United States government for a public relations campaign intended to bring their struggle against Soviet troops to the world’s attention.
The money will train Afghan rebel journalists to use television, radio and newspapers to advance their cause. Reporters will be given mini-cameras to photograph the war inside Afghanistan.
“It is the goal of this project to facilitate the collection, development and distribution of credible, objective and timely professional-quality news stories, photographs and television images about developments in Afghanistan,” said a notice in the Federal Register.
The program will be overseen by Uncle Sam’s own propaganda arm, the U.S. Information Agency. Congress appropriated $500 000 to hire experts and may provide more later.
In making the money available, Congress all but instructed USIA to consider an organization like Friends of Afghanistan, a new group whose board includes former Carter administration national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, known for hard-line anti-Soviet views.
USIA has solicited proposals, due Sept. 25.
Friends of Afghanistan includes other American foreign policy luminaries such as Lawrence Eagleburger, a former undersecretary of state, and Dr. Zalmay Khalilzad, a Columbia University political science professor and some-time paid adviser to the State Department on Afghanistan. …

Of particular importance for our understanding of Srebrenica is this phrase used by Jared Israel in the above. “teach the Afghan terrorists how to win international support by portraying those opposing them as human rights abusers.”
This is the central question in Srebrenica. The US and EU, because of the demands of a capitalist system which seeks a return on capital (profit), knew that it had to do something about the massive human and physical resources of Asia, including China, India and Russia. But the Yugoslav system remained the last socialist state standing. In reality it was not revolutionary socialist, more a form of social democracy with Stalinist input, but it also had a national ingredient of independence and historical opposition to Islam, in actual fact to Nazism. In any case it very definitely stood in the way of the New Empire ambitions of the US and EU.
Take the word of Jared Israel above very seriously. What they set out to achieve re the “Srebrenica Massacre” was a lie so big, so outlandish, that they meant to make it impossible to deny said Big Lie. And as we saw in our critique of Znet and Herman they have succeeded pretty well because even Herman cannot bring himself to deny their Big Lie. Now that IS success!
In fact you can say the ruling elites intended to make it impossible to deny this Big Lie or you the ordinary but sceptical and free thinking punter run the risk of being labelled a “Srebrenica Denier”. So of course playing on the horrific Nazi Holocaust tragedy that befell the Jews.
What Jared Israel has done (I invite you to read his whole article) is show that Srebrenica was part of a method which had been well rehearsed.
