Slobodan Milosevic has died
|Slobodan Milosevic has died at the age of 64. He suffered from high blood pressure and a weak heart, but his enemies refused him permission to travel to Russia last month for medical treatment. Only yesterday President Milosevic had claimed that he was being poisoned, and his lawyer today requested that the autopsy be carried out in Moscow. Needless the say this has been refused.|
His crime was to stand up to the west who wanted to turn his independent country into yet another capitalist appendage. Had Russia not still been in thrawl to western interests in 1999 he might have managed to stop imperialism in its tracks with their help. He failed, and the Serbian province of Kosovo was stripped away. Thus the world was then forced to watch as the beast slouched over to Iraq. Luckily Iraq decided to resist; one hopes that this gave some comfort to Slobodan Milosovic as he endured the indignity of his imprisonment.
As a prisoner from 2001 onwards he spat defiance at the dwarfs that held him. Who can forget his contemptuous exchange with Judge Kaffirbasher, or whatever the wazzock's name was? He was asked if he wanted the charges read out in full - and his reply was a mocking: "That's your problem".
It is still unclear if his body will be released to Serbia for the funeral. It is possible that the capitalists will want assurances that it does not turn into a display of Serbian defiance against the beast.
