>NPPs AROUND YUGOSLAVIA: POTENTIAL SOURCE OF THE NUCLEAR CATASTROPHE

I can understand this fear, but I had never heard, that NATO planes ever
attacked nuclear power plants.

The main goal seems to be, that NATO degrades the ability of the yugoslav
army to make war. This means, mainly military targets came under fire.

As far as I understand, the entire population of the Kosovo Albanians has
been driven out by yugoslav military and paramilitary. Many people are
murdered. The refugees had to give all their money and ID papers to the
Yugoslav police. After they leaved their homes by force, their villages are
set on fire. This reminds me to the holocaust. Slobodan Milosevic is nothing
better than Adolf Hitler. He is a thread not only to yugoslav minorities,
but also to Europe. His government brings the war not only to Serbia to let
even the serbian people suffer from that, but also to the surrounding
countries. Once Albania, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey are at war, this
stepup leads us very close to the third world war. NATO's attacks on the
yugoslav military prevents us from this evil stepup.

I have the hope, peace comes soon. I heard from a german peace plan and
similar peace plans from other NATO allied governments. According to this
peace plans the Kosovo Albanians can return back to Kosovo under NATO or UNO
protection. A Marshall plan for Serbia and it's neighbors will restore the
economy of the south-east european region. Free elections in Serbia must
push back radical nationalist movements from the power. A long term plan
will open the door for Serbia to become a new member of the European Union
within the next two generations.

The situation in eastern Europe marks the sad end of marxism and it's
related ideologies. In the 20th century communist parties gained power as
the self appointed leaders of the working class. We can remember the satanic
world of Josef Stalin, the cold war and the iron curtain. In 1999 we see
Slobodan Milosevic and his vicious army in action. These socialists fights
against albanian workers and farmers with the brutality of ethnic cleansing.
Yugoslav socialism became a deadly threat even to the entire working class.

During the last two decades I joined the peace movement, because I hate the
war. Now I hope, NATO's action against Slobodan Milosevic will become a
success. The times, they are a changing.
