Slobodan's Mysterious Death


(Paris) A cloud of suspicion has enveloped the death of former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic, with evidence emerging today that the jailed man may have taken medication he wasn't supposed to. The official cause of death has been listed as a heart attack.

Some theories suggest that Milosevic was poisoned, while others claim that smuggled drugs may have deliberately been consumed by Milosevic in order to facilitate being sent to Moscow for treatment. The wife and son of the former Serbian president live in Moscow.

A handwritten note was also released today that Milosevic allegedly wrote on March 6; in the letter he claims knowledge of unprescribed medications in his system:

I think that the persistence, with which the medical treatment in Russia was denied, in the first place is motivated by the fear that through careful examination it would be discovered, that there were active, willful steps taken, to destroy my health, throughout the proceedings of the trial, which could not be hidden from Russian specialists... This document, which I received on March 7, shows that on January 12th (i.e. two months ago), an extremely strong drug was found in my blood, which is used, as they themselves say, for the treatment of tuberculosis and leprosy, although I never used any kind of antibiotic during this 5 years that I'm in their prison
Further complicating the circumstances of the death of Slobodan Milosevic is the question of where to hold the funeral and burial. A return to Serbia may reignite nationalist sentiments and trigger a backlash against the pro-democracy forcs who bought about his overthrow in 2000.

There is also the possibility that Milosevic, on trial for war crimes, might end up becoming a political martyr for Serbian nationalists, and the mysterious circumstances of his death might lead to renewed sectarian violence in the Balkans.

Whatever did Slobodan in, it is for the best.

(sarcasm on)
And he was such a health-nut...
(sarcasm off)

He will NOT be missed by most.

Eerily similar to Rudolph Hess…..

It is unfortunate that another Nationalist leader is punished (probably assassinated) for simply trying to preserve his country and his people.

Not missed by many, Hooda.

It's hard to say if we was assassinated, Stephan. He just might have been the type of person to self-poison to get a trip to Moscow.

I posted this on a Milosevic discussion forum. It accurately sums up my thoughts.


My heart goes out to all Serbs and all people who have been ground under the boots of the NWO - or who are targeted for such treatment.

Truly, Mr. Milosevic was our president.

All of us.

I write as someone who was deeply ashamed and angered by the role that both my native country (Iran) and my adopted country (U.S.) played in the decimation, destruction and forced partition of Yugoslavia.

May God forgive us.

The "humanitarian" wars waged by the Western powers, Iran and Saudi Arabia against Yugoslavia in the 90s served as the catalyst for my political awakening and to the horrors which "Enlightenment" ideology have been twisted into.

Throughout it all, Mr. Milosevic stood out as a figure of inspiration, defiance and heroism.

May the martyrs of the Field of the Black Birds welcome him home as one of their own. And may glory return to the people of Serbia.

We are in danger of agreeing on a lot of things….. ; )

I hope Iran is left alone but the pragmatist in me is saying that in a year or two Iran will indeed be bombed or invaded.

I hope your relatives and friends fare well in the upcoming months.

The administration using Orwellian double speak--- will bring ‘freedom’ and ‘peace’ to that region with war and bombs--- the only casualties will be innocent from Iranian civilians to the American working class soldiers caught in a wave of faux-patriotism.

I wish you and your family well.

One final note---

I wonder what Hooda thinks about Ariel Sharon who has undoubtedly killed more than Slobodan Milosevic and who is unabashed about killing civilians.

Double standard…….

Stefan Schmidt,

"I wonder what Hooda thinks about Ariel Sharon who has undoubtedly killed more than Slobodan Milosevic and who is unabashed about killing civilians.

Double standard……."

IMO, Sharon talks like a loyal partisan, b ut his actions are those of a common street thug.

Mr. Charm & Congeniality he ain't.

But his tactics are effective...

"punished for simply trying to preserve his people"??? Why then, doesn't the evil west 'punish' the Dalai Lama? Have you guys heard of Srebrenica? Where did the Bosnian Serbs get all that artillery? Anthropologists have traced all races back to a tribe in Africa? His "People"?? What does that mean? Is it a language thing? That's a good reason to cleanse a region. If it weren't for nationalists and religious fanatics, the world wouldn't need a hegemon. Yeah, may Slobodan be welcomed into the arms of those Blackbird heroes up there...maybe he can rally them into throwing lightning bolts onto the heads of those non-Serbian speaking people who have encroached on their land.
