Rotten.com are thick as pig's proverbial

category international | arts and media | opinion/analysis author Monday June 14, 2004 23:10author by jeff Report this post to the editors

Everyone knows rotten.com, and how the glibly show off p[ictures of dead people and their unfortunate endings. I personally view such sites as on par with the likes of the Darwqin awards; a pervers need to humilate those deemed as losers, and, if needs be, their families. They are ' lahh-oo-zers', and such glib arrogance is indicative of the culture of the United States.

But look, their superiority looks set to be challenged. Click on the link and see why any secondary school teacher wouldf give these tits an 'f' for their entry on Slobodan Milosevic. Oh, and the below is the text of an e mail I sent them.

Hi,

I was reading your library section, and noticed this in your entry for Slobadon Milosevic

"From 1995 to 1996, the leaders of the Slavic republics were pretty much marched into a room at gunpoint by the United Nations and told to work it out. The end result was a further travesty. Yugoslavia was re-formed as a loose confederation of republics, and guess which ethnic cleanser was elected to lead it? "

Erm, no actually. The leaders of the various Slavic republics had achieved independence for their republics by 1992 and 1993.Slovenia got independence first, in 1991, after a ten day skirmish. Croatia declared independence next, and was at war with Yugoslavia over Krajinam,a Serb enclave in the east of the country, until a ceasefire in 1993.

War started in Bosnia in 1992; the east of Bosnia had separated itself to become the Bosnian Serb Republic. Yugoslavia was in there to help their genocidal brothers.

It was all part of the Greater Serbia plan; Milosevic wanted both the Krajina and the Bosnian Serb republic to be attached to Serbia and Montenegro. Croatia was to get its independence, but not get Krajina.

According to Tim Judah, author of The Serbs ( Yale 1997) Milosevic had met with Croatian leader Franjo Tjudjman in 1992, and they had initially agreed to split Bosnia between them, Serbia taking the eastern Serb enclave, and Croatia taking the western Port of Bosnia as far as part; the Muslims were to have a rump state round the area of Sarajevo.

In the end, the world leaders did get a peace agreement signed called Dayton, 1995. Serbia and Croatia were to have their borders intact, autonomy going to KJrajina, and Bosnia was to be a federation, again with the Serbs there getting autonomy.

In August of that year, Croatia took the Krajina for itself and kicked out the Serbs there. Bosnia remains the federation that was drawn out in Dayton, and is supervised by NATO and the EU.

You guys are getting confused with the former Soviet Union which initially was to be a Commonwealth of Independent Republics, a loose federation, but that was meaningless, and all the former Republics now enjoy complete independence. ( Chechnya was never given republic status in the Soviet Union, it still remains a province of Russia).

You guys are typical Americans; arrogant and as thick as pig shit. BTW, take down that picture of the wee murdered baby girl with her mouth stitched up, you miserable bastards.

I like your library, it makes good light reading. However, I'd be slow to recommend to anyone as a veritable compendium of fact.

PS; I am keeping this letter, linking to your page and posting this on the net to show everyone what idiots you are.
