THIS BLOG FOCUSES, FIRST, ON THE QUESTION WHY THE SERBIANS AND MILOSEVIC WERE MADE EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DISINTEGRATION AND THE CRIMES COMMITTED DURING THE DISINTEGTRATION. I.E. IT IS QUESTION OF HOW AND WHY SUCH A HUGE MAJORITY OF WESTERN NEWS CONSUMERS ARRIVED AT THAT CONCLUSION AND THEN ACTED UPON IT IN A VARIETY OF WAYS, ONE OF THEM BEING ATTACKS ON THE ANYTHING BUT A PERSONAL SAINT, PETER HANDKE'S WORK, REALLY GANGED UP ON THE WORK.

VOYAGE BY DUGOUT , THE PLAY THAT CAME OUT OF THE YUGO WAR EPERIENCES

Follow summapolitico on Twitter


"We not only own the language of the war, we own its image. And we own what is most universal of all: The stories of the images! " 


The Greek Reporter:


Youappear in the name of goodness, yet you have never left behind theleast goodness in this country. Helpers? You’ve never helped yet. Thereis a kind of indifference more helpful than your humanitariangesticulating. Your right hand caresses some like Mother Teresa whileyour left hand raises the sword of a criminal court against the others.Puny devils of goodness. Humanitarian hyenas. Aloof and formal in theface of suffering – you officious and public humanitarians. Marscorporations masquerading as guardians of human rights. You claim to behumanitarian sheriffs – and the humanitarian sheriffs in the westerns,isn’t it true, Mr. O’Hara, were usually incompetent or secretlycorrupt. They were the villains.
O’HARA
Aren’t those prejudices, my son?
MACHADO
Lethim expresshis prejudices, John. Prejudices make good film plots.
GREEK
Thewar has madethe people from here bad, worse than they are. You carpetbaggers havebecomebad with the war, like you really are. Deaf and blind – unfortunately,notspeechless, not speechless at all.
THIRD
Medievalrhetoric.
GREEK
Thosewho wieldsentences as bludgeons have the power. In earlier despotic regimes,that wasthe politicians. Now it is you. And while the small peoples here foughtforscraps of earth, you conquered the whole world. In word and image thedespoticlords over reality, you power rangers. Internationals?Extraterrestrials.International court? Universal stingrays.
FIRST
Youre notimagining an about face? We have to continue the way we began. Weare now prisoners of our initial opinion. We must continue morevigorously,more shrilly, and above all in a monotone – monotone – monotone. Thats theway it is. Thats thestate of affairs. Itstrue: Weresick of what we do, so sick of it. And weresick of each other. But what can we do? Should we suddenly say: Theotherones, the ones not from here, are also guilty? Guilty in a differentway?Impossible! Thats notthe point. We must continue as we began, in full voice and ifnecessary with empty hearts. Thats thewayit is. Thats the way it has to be. We are the language.
