Aliens are in control of Blair, say Serb psychics 

By Bojan Toncic in Belgrade 

The exhausted citizenry of Serbia, bent double by war, poverty and
isolation and short of news they can trust, are swallowing, not bread,
but stories from the "other side". 

But in traumatised Serbia the "other side" does not mean the Nato
states. The effects of war appear to have awakened a massive interest
in the world of the paranormal here. It is met by a range of new
magazines, books and newspapers covering a world where alien creatures
have control over Tony Blair and the US army is deploying squads of
witches in a war of magic against Serbia. 

Magazines such as Zona Sumraka (The Twilight Zone), Dosije X (X Files),
Cudo (Miracle), Trece Oko (The Third Eye) and Fenomeni (Phenomena) have
sprung up in the past two months. They offer escape to Serbs desperate
to find relief from their grim surroundings. 

The magazines appear to be the descendants of publications that
specialised in lonely hearts, advice columns and romances. These
progressed, via horoscopes and articles on how to match your wardrobe
to your star sign, into a media twilight zone. 

Many articles try to find spiritual rationales for the troubles that
have befallen Serbia in recent months. In a lengthy article for the
monthly Cudo, analyst Milan Vidojevic explains how the clandestine
"Order of the Fourth Reich" is creating a new world order on behalf of
Lucifer. Tellingly, the Order is being opposed only by the Chinese and
Serbian governments. 

Meanwhile Dr Todor Jovanovic tells Dosije X to beware the
extra-terrestrials who have recently arrived on earth. They "radiate
something diabolical, evil, poisonous." They have a hold over the
brains of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Nato's Javier Solana and other
Western leaders, he writes. 

"If one were to switch off the impulses radiated at the US president by
the extra-terrestrials," Jovanovic says, "only a sax player would
remain," while of his secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, only "an
elderly lady without ambitions". 

Other stories seem to feed off the Serbian preoccupation with history
and the traditional view that the country always has, and always will,
stand alone against a host of enemies. 

Just as the regime's propaganda portrays Nato as a loser in the war
with Serbia, so too the extra-terrestrials miscalculated when they
tangled with the Serbs. According to Jovanovic, the alien invaders have
"wisely concluded that Serbia is crucial". It was why they have planned
to "break" Serbia. 

It seems the aliens are no mere arrivistes either. Para-psychologist
Milorad Tomic claims that aliens have been plotting for 50 years to do
down Serbia, signing a secret deal with former Communist leader Tito.
An agreement was reached to allow bases to be set up on Yugoslavian
territory in 1945. 

To no one's surprise the aliens opted for Kosovo, where unusually
strong "geomagnetic forces" make the province perfect for aliens, says
Tomic, who claims to be a reincarnation of Nikola Tesla, the famous
turn-of-the-century Yugoslavian scientist and associate of US inventor
Thomas Edison. 

Geomagnetic forces or not, Serbia is ready. According to Spasoje
Vlajic, writing in Cudo, the Yugoslavian army has set up a special
squad - the secretive para-psychology Unit 69 - to confront the black
magic forces deployed by the US army. Vlajic, who played a key role, he
says, in setting up the unit for the Yugoslavian general staff, warns
his readers that "voodoo warriors and witches are already among US
troops in Kosovo". 

Vlajic cites an American magazine called The Military Review, and says
US warlocks and witches trained at a secret base in Texas for thei
mission in Kosovo - which is to draw out and defeat the Serbian
anti-magic Unit 69. The commander of the American unit is one Mary
Palmer, a member of the US army military police, he adds

Since the war, dozens of Serbian "clairvoyants" and "paranormal
experts" have stepped forward to join these publications, ready to give
guidance of a kind to their bewildered readers as they struggle to find
their bearings after 72 days of Nato bombing. 

According to Dr Geoffrey Scobie, senior psychologist at the University
of Glasgow, these current fixations betray serious emotional and
identity problems in contemporary Serbian society. "People's belief in
the paranormal increases when they lose confidence in material things,"
he says. "Traditional religious beliefs are not enough and so the
paranormal is pursued to meet their need to believe in something." 

Defeat for Nato features highly in many of the specialist publications
now on sale in the Belgrade kiosks. The magazine Trece Oko predicts
that domestic political conditions in alliance member states will
deteriorate steadily, forcing Nato to withdraw by "by the end of this
year, or by June 2000 at the latest". 

Many expect Wednesday's solar eclipse to herald new troubles for the
non-Russian K-FOR soldiers. Most troubling for Nato, however, will be
the appearance of a Danube version of the Loch Ness monster - "Danube
Nessi" - which was recently spotted by fisherman Milan Savin swimming
by the destroyed bridges at Novi Sad. 

Savin reports that Danube Nessi used to live in a tunnel below the
Danube and the city's historic Varadin Fortress, but the Nato bombs
forced it up to the surface. Now Nessi cruises the river looking for
victims. Nato had better beware.
