Memoirs of a Serbian-American Dissident

by William Dorich

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The author has written 6 books on Balkan history. This one will reveal shocking details of the duplicity by the US State Department and the "partisan press," insultingly called "advocacy journalism." During the entire decade of the 90s and the dismemberment of former Yugoslavia, the New York Times and The Los Angeles Times were among many national newspapers that did not publish ONE SINGLE ARTICLE written by a Serbian journalist, author, scholar or political leader. Not since Hitler has an ethnic race been demonized with collective guilt. This shocking book reveals the depth of duplicity by two US presidents, dozens of elected officials and a media that successfully muzzled Serbian views before bombing them into submission for 78 days, inflicting $80 billion in damage to Serbia. Serbs were denied the right to appear before the House and Senate, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Helsinki Commission, and the Human Right Commission while denying Serbs food and medicine as a weapon of war—a war that violated the United Nation's Charter, the NATO Treaty, The Helsinki Final Act, the Geneva Conventions and numerous international laws. This book contains articles by the author that appeared in The Washington Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, The Arizona Republic and The American Srbobran among others. It also contains numerous letters to many elected officials that expose hideous details about the war and what was done to the Serbian people, details withheld by the State Department and Madeleine Albright with the full cooperation of a bias press. Most of these journalists never set foot in Serbian territory. They could not speak the Serbian language and like Christiane Amanpour, most of them remained safely in the Holiday Inn in Sarajevo relying on Muslim "runners" to gather information to be published. Hearsay, double hearsay and fabricated reporting reeked of the depth to which too many journalists and news networks stooped
Description
Written by one of the most visible and outspoken Americans of Serbian heritage, the author appeared on Geraldo Live, Charles Groden and Fox News in addition to more than 300 national radio programs during the Bosnian and Kosovo Civil Wars. A correspondent for 15 years with The American Srbobran, the 100 year-old Serbian newspaper published in Pittsburgh, his articles also appeared in The Washington Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, The Arizona Republic, The Serbian Bar Association of America Journal among others—in addition to numerous Serbian websites and blogs. This book includes many of his powerful letters to President Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Richard Holbrooke, President Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Tom Brokow, Roy Gutman, Anthony Lewis, Senators Dole and Biden that expose the depth of duplicity against Serbia. Elected officials and the mainstream media perpetrated an Embargo on the Truth in which they resorted to lies, distortions, manipulation and omission journalism. The "collective guilt" of the Serbs continues today, 15 years after the end of these wars. This book promises to shock its readers with details that were kept from the American public including: "Ecocide NATO's Biological War on the Serbs" and the poisoning of Belgrade's water table for the next 200 years. The 3,000% increase in birth defects and cancer deaths related to the use of Depleted Uranium; how cluster bombs were dropped on civilian targets and entire Serbian villages of 300 to 400 homes razed miles from any Serbian targets—how the Danube River was polluted for a thousand miles through 7 countries—the destruction of 200 Serbian schools, 66 bridges, 9 hospitals, 11 nursing homes, 45 major manufacturing facilities that once employed over 800,000 Serbian citizens—the bombing of Belgrade Television killing 17 newspeople—passenger trains, buses—7 Serbian churches and 14 Serbian cemeteries. And most shocking of all, the American public has been kept blind and ignorant by the media about the destruction of 513 ancient Serbian churches since the end of the war in 1999, right under the noses of 17,000 NATO troops. Clinton lied in his last inaugural address claiming "350,000 deaths in Bosnia." Twelve years later human rights groups were having difficulty accounting for 97,000 victims on all sides. EVERY JOURNALIST COVERING THIS WAR claimed “250,000 deaths” for 8 years of reporting on Bosnia and Kosovo. In comparing 2 million deaths in the Sudan, 800,000 deaths in Rwanda, 500,000 in Angola and 200,000 in East Timor, the 2,000 deaths of Kosovo Albanian terrorists pale in comparison, yet the US, UK and NATO took us into an illegal war that violated the United Nations Charter, The NATO Treaty, the Helsinki Final Act and the Geneva Conventions doing $80 billion in damage to Serbia. These, plus many shocking details are exposed in this book. William Dorich is the author of the 1991 book, The Serbian Genocide-1941-45 and the 1992 book, Kosovo. Proceeds from the sale of the book were used to aid thousands of Serbian orphans of the Bosnian Civil War. His other books include, A Brief History of Serbian Music in its second edition and Hilandar's Octocentenary which commemorates the 800th anniversary of the Hilandar Monastery on Mt. Athos. On Easter Sunday, 1997, the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church bestowed The Order of St. Sava on Mr. Dorich, the highest recognition given to a layperson by the Serbian Church. He is also the 1997 recipient of an Award of Merit by the Serbian Bar Association of America.
