An Appeal from the Srebrenica Historical Project

Note by the Saker:  I would compare the importance of the events in Srebrenica only to 9/11 in terms of the immense consequences resulting from them and in terms of the determined efforts made by the Empire to conceal the reality of what took place in 1995 and 2001.  The big difference is that while many people do care about the truth about 9/11, most people think that Srebrenica is

We are creating a “resistance network”

Dear friends, Good news!  In the same spirit which makes me write a weekly column for the Unz Review and which makes me post weekly contribution by Alexander Mercouris from Russia Insider, I have made an agreement with the folks at the Greanville Post: they will be regularly posting my articles on the GP and I will regularly post their articles on the blog.  This is a very informal arrangement
