Once a warrior, always one. Clark hasn’t forgotten. His credentials are notorious. He’s a war criminal. He’s also a whistleblower. More on that below.
He formerly commanded NATO. From March 24 – June 19, 1999, he led naked aggression against Yugoslavia. For 78 days, hundreds of warplanes attacked mercilessly. About 3,000 sorties were flown.
Thousands of tons of ordnance were dropped. Hundreds of ground-launched cruise missiles were used.
Nearly everything was struck. Massive destruction and disruption followed. An estimated $100 billion in damage was caused. A humanitarian disaster resulted. Environmental contamination was extensive.
Many thousands were killed, injured or displaced. Two million people lost livelihoods. Homes and communities were destroyed.
Lawless aggression was called humanitarian intervention. It was prelude for worse to come.
An avenue to Eurasia was opened. A permanent US military presence was established. America’s imperium claimed another trophy. It had many others in mind.
It did so at the expense of mass killing and destruction. Clark’s a retired four-star general. He’s a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. He received numerous other awards. They include honorary knighthoods. America and complicit allies honor their worst. MORE
