American Soldier P.O.W Thanks Serbs

23 May

I have never served in the military, but I have respect for anyone that does that thankless job. The troops are taking orders and doing a job that they have taken an oath to do. That is the same with every nation. There are some bad apples in every bunch, but that can be said for any group of people.

We all know what happened in 1999……Serbia was bombed by N.A.T.O for 3 months. They destroyed the majority of bridges in the country, destroyed  powerplants, oil refineries, and killed hundreds people. 😦 I will never understand why we intervened in this dispute! Serbia was defending its own territory!!! They were not invading some innocent neighbor  or trying to create a “Greater Serbia” they were just trying to hang on to their dwindling land mass!!! You all know that I am a big Liberal Democrat, but check out what Republican Ron Paul had to say about our involvement in this conflict I AM NOT GOING TO GO DEEPER IN THIS! I just think we were totally wrong! It seems that we have spit on an old ally. The Serbians were responsible for saving over 500 American troops from the Germans in WWII. Check out what the veterens had to say about Serbians and this is how we repay them?

Three American soldiers were captured by Serbian troops on April 1, 1999, a few miles from Skopje, Macedonia. One of the soldiers being a 25-year-old from Michigan named Chris Stone. Chris was married and had a young daughter at home. I am sure the world was thinking ” OH MY GOD!!! SERBIANS ARE GOING TO TORTURE AND MURDER THESE HOSTAGES!” Vice President of Serbia , Vuk Draskovic, stated ” Nothing will happen to them, we respect the enemy. However, they will face Serbian justice.”

What happened to them?  Did the Serbian guards beat, torture and harvest their organs??? Lets find out………………………………………….


Mr Stone and the other two hostages were released on May 4th, 1999 after Rev. Jesse Jackson flew to Belgrade to meet with Serbian leadership. Here is a note that Mr Stone sent to the Serbian guards that were responsible for guarding him after he returned to the United States:


It looks like the “BARBARIC” Serbians treated their enemy with the utmost respect! It isn’t everyday that you find a P.O.W sending his guards a nice “thank you”. Lets ask John McCain if he sent the Viet Cong a message like this after he sat in a cell and was tortured for years. Why does the media continue to defile the name the of the Serbian people??? Governments have NO FRIENDS…. THEY ONLY HAVE INTERESTS!!! 😦

    really nice work and great effort. Unfortunatelly,liku you said..politians has NO FRIENDS only INTERESTS. We will never understand what have we done to deserve a contnous ‘savages’ treatment in the US. Those names ‘small russians’,’savages’,’terrorists’ even ‘modern fascists’ are at least deeply insulting. Wegave 3 million casualties in WWII fighting Hitler,always were an alies with US,Franch,British etc. What was modern interest of todays ‘great powers’ to dismantle and punish small country like Serbia. Are they affraid of us? Whats the catsh? We fought muslim terrorist,mujahedins etc in Bosnia and Kosovo and Metohia..Isnt that what US have been doing all this time in iraq,Afganistan..why are there double standards and why are TERRORISTS in Serbia ‘friendlies’ and Serbs are ‘savages’. In years we are trying to conclude what went wrong and didnt seem to manage the right answer

      “We fought muslim terrorist,mujahedins etc in Bosnia and Kosovo and Metohia”

      Yes americans hate muslims, just say muslim and every dumb american is with you. MUSLIMS, MUSLIMS, MUSLIMS !!!!!

      Muslims have nothing to do with that war. That just sound nice to americans after 9/11. Serbia started that war for two reasons.

      1.) Revenge for Croatian war crimes in WW2
      2.) Creating Great Serbia

      Muslims did not attack Slovenia, Croatia or Bosnia !!!
