Had the attitudes of dictator J.B. Tito’s retired generals - Milos Minic, Stevan Mirkovic and others - as well as the attitudes of Western [sponsored] agencies in the form NGO’s been adopted, Visas would not have been introduced to Serbia, nor would there had been sanctions, blackmail, [or] bombings ...

If my memory serves me well, it was sometime in the spring of 1992 when I went on a business trip to Trieste to import paper. I got into my “Lada Samara” [car] and took to the road via Hungary. Traffic flow was usual to the Hungarian-Austrian border, near Graz. There, some old customs officer, with a Kaiser mustache, looked at my passport and said, “tsurik!” [“go back!”] However, going back was not an option for me. I asked the Austrian what was the matter, and he showed me with his hand a paper posted on the customs office. There were two lists [of] license plate numbers from Serbia with which travelers can enter Austria and those that were prohibited to enter. The plates on my “Samara” [had the prefix] KG, and was located on the banned list.

I turned back around and began to complain to the Hungarians. They said that, not far from there is another border crossing, and that the ban may not have been implemented there yet. I took their advice, but in vain. And there, was a repeat of the previous event.

This was an intermediate time in the implementation of visas. Soon it became mandatory for Austria, while we went [traveling] to Hungary for a long time with just “good day” [no visas necessary]

Now, in December 2009, [our] politicians celebrate the abolishing of visas, but no one says why they were actually implemented. Nor why they were abolished. I only agree, with them [our politicians], in their observation that freedom of movement is a great achievement in civilization. Only, I say aloud and imply a counter-claim: that the prohibition of freedom of movement is an un-civilized act. In our time it is characteristic of totalitarian regimes, while during a period prior to and up to the late Middle Ages, it represents the commonly used strategy which mirrors the [act of] encirclement and isolation of fortified cities, until the population becomes exhausted by hunger, thirst and disease, [caused] by not accepting the conditions of the aggressor. Initially, the weakest groups suffer the most amongst the isolated - the elderly, children, pregnant women, patients – those of which the aggressors, as a rule, ignore.

In other words, the introduction of the visa regime - as well as economic sanctions and endless blackmail, and finally military aggression - was one of the measures to crush the resistance of the Serbian people in the changes initiated during the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The formal fall of Communism created a need for a new look on an international level, which came down to two key issues: the replacement of a one party regime with a multiparty system and the drawing of new / old borders, regarding the creation of new or reviving old states.

The first issue was ruled by consensus. Multiparty systems were created in a short period of time in all post-Communist countries, and what was immediately obvious was that the road to genuine democracy would be painstaking (and [the pain] has lasted to this very day).

Regarding the second issue, Western countries took to being unfair and discriminatory. While their politicians talked about the necessity of removing the consequences of Communism, in the Serbian case, to a point of being absurd [they] insisted on preserving its main achievement, namely the [Communist drawn] republican and provincial borders. In that time, most of the actors in the Serbian political scene, from the main opposition parties to the ruling Socialist Party, believed that the grounds for withdrawing new state borders must be to those boundaries of the federal units before 1941. All non-political institution believed this as well, from the Association of Writers to the Academy of Sciences. Hardcore Communists and the so-called NGO’s, were the only few who argued in favor of the boundaries drawn up by the Communist minority in 1943 in Jajce.

Therefore, had the attitudes of dictator J.B. Tito’s retired generals - Milos Minic, Stevan Mirkovic and others - as well as the attitudes of Western [sponsored] agencies in the form NGO’s been adopted, Visas would not have been introduced to Serbia, nor would there had been sanctions, blackmail, [or] bombings ... The eighteen year siege, accompanied by the other measures listed, was necessary to break the Serbian resistance and to finally declare Communist victory in the key issue, the issue of borders. And Serbian defeat was declared a victory, as we see on [our] TV screens, as it was necessary to extract from this whole story just that one element, the abolition of visas.

However, the Serbian people know what defeat is and what victory is. For those who have forgotten, there will be an opportunity to refresh one’s memory [.] For instance when the moment comes that the Albanians take over Pantchich’s Peak, as part of the quasi-state territory that was created for them by the West, and when from atop of Pantchich’s Peak they fire off some mortar shells at the hotels in the [surrounding] foothills, and then hide behind the monument of Bill Clinton, which has in so many ways showed to be an excellent [place of] shelter for terrorist actions.

When submitting the candidature of Serbia for joining the European Union, on the 22nd of December, it was said that it is the desire of the citizens of Serbia. However, the truth is that the citizens were not asked about that, and as things stand now, there will be no referendum [on the issue].

Instead of answers to specific questions, primarily regarding borders, which also exist in the European Union, we hear phrases from officials in Brussels, like this: “The Serbian people will become a member of the great European family ... Applying themselves in their own development and general welfare, with the support of United Europe”. And [we hear] slogans that are appropriate for the authorities in Belgrade, like this: “Serbia is not an isolated island. Serbia is an integral part of Europe. Without the Union [,] not for anyone, not even for Serbia, there is no life ...”
Note: For those readers who think that it is excessive that I used a part of Hitler’s message to the Serbs from 1942 as a cliché used by European Union officials, they may not be aware that Hitler was the first to use the term “European Union”[.] And for those who also think that it is excessive that I quoted part of [General] Milan Nedić’s speech as the words of the current Belgrade Government, then additional information is required. Well then, in that first European Union, Pantchich’s Peak, Kosovska Mitrovitsa District, and Kosovo’s Morava regions, were left in Serbia, to be specific, in so-called Nedić’s Serbia
