On the anniversary of the Dayton Accords

Richard Holbrooke, RIH

On his deathbed in Washington, Richard Holbrooke allegedly told his Pakistani surgeon, “You’ve got to stop this war in Afghanistan.”  Perhaps the story is true.  After all, Holbrooke, though one of the greatest liars in public life, must have told the truth occasionally and his words may even have been delivered accurately by the class of journalists who cannot give us a sports score without making a politically correct comment on race, sex, or sexual orientation.

Whatever Holbrooke might have said on the way to his reward, the high points of his career were marked by his ruthless advocacy of war and slaughter.  In the Former Yugoslavia he championed the rights of the bloodthirsty Bosnian Muslims and boasted of showing them how to target their guns–a boast he later denied, naturally.  Ironically (providentially) the Master of War died on the anniversary of the Dayton Accords, a deal he has misrepresented,  misused, and attempted to circumvent ever since.  The ink was hardly dry, when Holbrooke and his cronies began–in the style of Federal judges–to invoke the “spirit of Dayton” against the letter of an agreement that was supposed to permit autonomy to the Bosnian Serbs.  I well recall hearing President BiljanaPlavisic’s witty response, “I am a scientist [in fact a microbiologist]; I don’t believe in  ghosts [i.e., spirits].”  But, in addition to being a Master of War, Holbrooke was a master of the Great Lie.  Now he has (I can only suppose without pretending to know) gone to the Father of Lies.

Holbrooke was one of the architects of a US foreign policy that has targeted Christians around the world for extinction–in Bosnia, in Kosovo, in EAst Timor, and in Iraq, where the last remnants of an ancient Christian community are being extirpated even as I write.

Some years ago, I asked some Zionist Evangelicals about the wisdom of a policy that slaughtered Christians in order to help the Jewish state.   “Iraqis?  They’re not Christians.”  They said the same thing of the Palestinian Christians.   So the oldest Christian communities in the world are not Christian, and the one and only true church is some  Zionist sect invented in the 19th century out of thin air and a misreading of Scripture !  But this is America, where new trumps old, and cheap trumps good every time.

I should have thought that from a Protestant perspective, anyone who accepted Christ and Him crucified as God, Lord, and Savior could be given some credit for being a Christian, that only Catholics (and, then, the least educated and most prejudiced) were bigoted enough to deny the term Christian to the sects.  Richard Baxter’s (and C.S. Lewis’s “mere Christianity”) may be rather a thin gruel, but I have always thought it  enough to sustain a man in his faith.  It is bad enough to send all “heretics” (Christians with whom I disagree on some intellectual point) to Hell, but to deny the status of Christian to a persecuted congregation threatened with extermination is a device of Hell itself.  The Zionist and Republican Christians who supported the anti-Christian policies of the past three presidents are enemies to the religion they claim to profess.

Back in Pakistan, our ally in the Crusade to liberate Afghan women from their fathers and husbands, a Christian woman has been condemned to death for blasphemy.  Apparently, when Muslim co-workers refused to drink water she she had brought and insulted her religion, the poor woman had responded in kind. Now there are mobs of Muslims demonstrating and demanding her head.  The Vatican has asked for a pardon, but it will be a cold day in Hell when the President or Secretary of State make such a request, unless it is couched in the language of women’s rights.  Christians of America, get used to it: Your government and ruling class hates you.  Think about this as you pull the lever for Newt Gingrich or John McCain.

The United States is engaged in a Holy War, a Zionist Jihad to destroy Christianity.  This policy has succeeded in killing and subjugating Christian Serbs, Iraqis, Pakistanis, and any other Christian population that gets in the way of the agenda.  These are the fruits of the policies of Richard Holbrooke and Madeline Albright, and Bill Clinton, of George Bush, Condaleeza Rice, and Don Rumsfeld, of Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton.  May God have mercy on their souls; I know I don’t.

  1. Justina,
    May I humbly suggest that you print your post,
    light a candle in front of any icon in your home, cross yourself, stand before your icon and slowly and deliberately read each word you wrote aloud.
    If you have not an icon, please read it to your local bishop. If you know not your bishop, read it to your priest. If you do not have a priest, read it to yourself while you are praying to God.

    I will be praying for you and I venture to guess many others will be joining me.
    Peace.

  2. I was going to reply to this but noticed on the header of Justina’s blog:

    “I am Eastern Orthodox but against Serbian cultic nationalism and imperialism.”

    And may the good Lord protect us from your hateful words as well.

  3. bosnia would never have become such a war zone if
    the damn serbs had not been clinging to their turk like
    spirit and refused to coexist. All the mess there and in
    Croatian turf started when ethnic serbs revolted.
    Even Patriarch Pavle admitted that the atrocities were
    true. So did some others who, though serbian were
    good people. Like the doctor who reported what the
    victims of mass rape told him when he treated them.
    Serbian Orthodoxy is to Orthodoxy what some
    hypothetical hybrid of the Iron Guard aka Legion of
    the Archangel Michael and Santeria would be. They
    are blot on Orthodoxy, individual holy individuals
    excepted. The Church eventually realized they were
    being had and turned against Milosevic. The stirring
    romance mentality is fleshly and of the passions that
    the Orthodox is supposed to reject. They are frauds.
    And contrary to the Serbian propaganda now, the
    media was not against them from the start. There was
    concerted ignoring of what they were doing, it took a
    lot of trouble to get attention on it, and response was
    too little, too late. The idea that peacekeepers not
    fire on anyone is absurd. You cannot keep peace
    without making war on the war makers.
    The modern Serbs should read the hagiography of
    St. Prince Lazar, who had accepted God’s offer
    through the Theotokos that he would have a
    heavenly crown, if he rejected the earthly crown.
    that meant, that he by his acceptance, decreed
    defeat for the Serbs at Kosovo, and while captive
    later, he wondered if he should have made this
    agreement, without putting it to the rest of them
    for consideration first. So there was NO advance
    knowledge of defeat, NO breathtakingly brave
    attack conducted rather die than live under
    unrighteousness sort of thing, the Serbs (and several
    other peoples with them) went to that battle expecting
    to win.

    And an angel came and comforted him, saying that the
    Serbian favorite saints were praying in heaven for the
    Turks to win, and apparently god let St. Lazar cast the
    lot, because the ONLY hope for the Serbs was to live in
    slavery, living as a worldly empire wallowing in worldly
    glory and the ways of satan, while keeping up an
    Orthodox appearance, they would be damned.

    The whole idea of a Serbian soul is absurd. And the
    definition of Serbian Orthodoxy as Orthodoxy ennobled
    by a vigorous nationalism, is PURE BLASPHEMY!
    yet it was spoken by a Serbian clergyman and he went
    unrebuked. BLASPHEMY! Serbian Orthodoxy is
    Holy Orthodoxy polluted by a vigorous nationalism.
    Serbs after that defeat immediately partnered with the
    Turks to make war on old rivals, some of them Orthodox,
    and played a role in the destruction of Constantinople
    itself. (I understand some Christians in Constantinople
    were praying for its defeat also, because of the rampant
    corruption and ungodliness of most people and the rulers
    there.)

    The information on St. Lazar I found at an older version
    of the Decani Monastery website.

  4. Diogenes > Thanks for your comment. You write, “Their policies were not unlike the campaigns of the Nazis…”. Whenever there is a new evil in the world it seems the comparison is made to the Nazis. I don’t think their “campaigns” were very similar at all.

    In the 1930s Germany had the 2nd largest economy. It was a great power with the great industrial and military capabilities. The fascist Nazi party grew from a small group of fanatics and took over the German government which rich industrialists supported and needed in order to defeat the strong workers’ movement. These industrialists weren’t too worried or concerned about Hitler’s national socialist demagogy. The Nazi policy of genocide was part of his plan to crush the communist and socialist movements which had the allegiance of the great majority of workers. Once that was completed he assembled an army and wanted to take over all of Europe. The Serbian army in Bosna, on the other hand, was neither a great military force nor an industrial power. They were defending their land. As you note “…Bosnians (Muslims) were encroaching and taking Serbian lands, but the response from Serbian military forces was so severe that destabilization of the entire Balkan region was beginning”.

    See here regarding mass executions.

  5. The writer here is clearly nuts. The Serbs had to be stopped because they were engaging in MASS EXTERMINATIONS. Their policies were not unlike the campaigns of the Nazis. In fact, many mass graves of Muslims still haven’t been found. There is no doubt the Bosnians (Muslims) were encroaching and taking Serbian lands, but the response from Serbian military forces was so severe that destabilization of the entire Balkan region was beginning. THIS is why the U.S., the U.N. and Holbrooke had to act. It wasn’t some conspiracy against Christianity and certainly not against Orthodox Christianity. Since Dayton, we have peace in the region and there still is one or two Serb leaders wanted in the Hague for engineering and carrying out MASS EXECUTIONS!

  6. Let’s face reality: The U.S. was an ally of Bosnia — not Serbia — during the Bosnian War. Consequently, the Dayton Accords, as drawn up by Richard Holbrooke, were designed to benefit Bosnia after that war at the expense of Serbia.
