|By Zeljko MILICEVIC: The former commanding officer of UNPROFOR, Canadian general Lewis MacKenzie was relieved of his duty and brought back because – and I state this here publicly – I had personally named him, in July of 1992, in my meeting with colonel Drinkwater, then a public affairs officer with the Department of Defence, in which meeting I advised him that MacKenzie had been declared as suspect in war crimes including the crime of rape. The fine Government of Canada bestowed a heroâ€™s decoration upon him and, subsequently, the fine Governor General, a certain Michaelle Jean, who is the chief commanding officer of Canadaâ€™s military, promoted him into the Order of Canada – the highest most decoration in the country. A fine woman has decorated a fine man who was finely removed and, indeed, fled, Bosnia because of allegations of rape.|
I have lived in Ottawa, Canada, since 1981. I brought my then family here, from Velenje in Slovenia, as in 1979 I saw that Serbs were going to attack all others around them.
Of course, I was proclaimed a lunatic as Slovenes are fine people and they have never had any problems with Serbs – that was the standard mantra. They objected when I used to warn them about what was being prepared. They said: â€œYou, Croats, have always had problems with Serbs. We do not have problemsâ€. Fine people, they do not have problems with wild extremists who have dragged the whole Serbian nation down the toilet of the European and world civilization (I state that I own the copyright, as it were, to this statement which I have used here in earlier texts).
Well, following the proclamation of independence of Slovenia, Serbs attacked Slovenia – it appears that they were not advised that the fine Slovenes never had any problems with the fine Serbs.
Fine people, those Slovenes, who have not stood up, in the fine capital city of fine Canada, to protest the military assault and to demand that Canada immediately recognize the independence of Slovenia. My former wife, a Slovene, did not move a finger to show support for independence of her land of birth. Quite to the contrary, she instructed me against taking any action. But I, a Bosniak who is not a fine person, decided to organize a demonstration in support of the proclamation of independence of Slovenia and Croatia. I went to the Croats and borrowed a Croatian flag. Fine people, those Canadian Croats. They never asked the fundamental question: â€Why?â€
Not to speak about the Slovenes of Ottawa. Even finer people, they would not send a letter of protest, never mind organize a demonstration in support of the proclamation of independence of their land of birth. They gave me the Slovenian flag just to get rid of me.
The first ones, who in Ottawa demonstrated in front of the Parliament of Canada and the old American Embassy, in support of the proclamation of independence of Slovenia and Croatia, were my son and I. There was nobody else, as everybody else are fine people.
That was on Tuesday, July 2, 1991. I had properly registered a demonstration with the federal police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), as we held our demonstration in front of the Parliament of Canada, in which case the RCMP have primacy over local or provincial police.
At the end of the day a couple, who declared themselves â€œmembers of HDZ (Croatian Democratic Union, a political party) took a photograph of us. They were very fine people.
There is this finesse which we lack in Bosnia. I do not know why and how, but we lack it.
I have had many fine friends here. All of them, Canadians, declared themselves to have been my friends – yet they never were. I have never took them to task over it, as it would not have been fine.
â€œBut Zeljko, this is not our warâ€ – were the words of fine Michelle Bavington, a fine friend, when I asked her and her husband, Paul Bavington, to write a letter, as original Canadians, to their member of Parliament and to the Prime Minister, in the spring of 1993, and to request that the Canadian military, which at the time was already on the ground in Bosnia, put itself in the service of defending democracy and the stated will of the electoral majority of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Michelle and Paul Bavington are a fine people and they do not protest or demonstrate. They have fine contacts within the system. They let a genocide be finely aided and abetted and then swept under the carpet, all in their name. That is how a truly fine people comport themselves.
I wanted to throw those fine people, those self-proclaimed friends, out of my home but my then wife did not allow that as that would not have been nice.
Michelle and Paul Bavington are not the only fine people. Canada, and especially Ottawa, is full of fine people. I have met a lot of them. Every time it has ended with a strange sensation of pain in the area of my rectum. I can not find an explanation for that. It must be because I am from Bosnia and therefore I am not a fine person.
Canada has finely evaded, at least up to now, its complicity to the crime of genocide against Bosnia and Bosniaks.
The former commanding officer of UNPROFOR, Canadian general Lewis MacKenzie was relieved of his duty and brought back because – and I state this here publicly – I had personally named him, in July of 1992, in my meeting with colonel Drinkwater, then a public affairs officer with the Department of Defence, in which meeting I advise him that MacKenzie had been declared as suspect in war crimes including the crime of rape. The fine Government of Canada bestowed a heroâ€™s decoration upon him and, subsequently, the fine Governor General, a certain Michaelle Jean, who is the chief commanding officer of Canadaâ€™s military, promoted him into the Order of Canada – the highest most decoration in the country. A fine woman has decorated a fine man who was finely removed and, indeed, fled Bosnia because of allegations of rape.
This past Sunday I went for a walk along the Ottawa river – the snow has melted and the trees started to bud. I came upon a plaque, which I have seen before, in which the finesse of the British Empire is documented, Canada being but a part of it. The plaque has been erected by the Archaeological and Historical Board of (the province of) Ontario. Upon the plaque it is finely written that the British called upon volunteers of their Canadian colony to finely go and conquest lands on the other side of the world. It needs to be noted that on this plaque an ending â€œistâ€ is being used in a derogatory meaning which has, by now, been attributed to denote a negative in Islam and from that a noun and an adjective have finely been created, as in â€œIslamistâ€, to demean a religion, a way of life and a people.
This fine plaque finely evades the fact that the British Empire has committed the crimes of invasion, aggression and genocide in Sudan, in which the fine Canadians volunteered – they all are a fine people. The defender of Khartoum, Muhammad Ahmed Mahdi was proclaimed a lunatic. His fighters were proclaimed â€œMahdistsâ€. It is because they were not finely organized, they did not finely attack but they defended themselves. Well, that was not fine.
When it is about the survival of a people, a nation, a state, there is no room for finesse.
Wake up, oh people, and realize, people, that all of us are being separated on the basis of nationality and religion. In the process we all become slaves and in that slavery we all, paradoxically, become equal!
All of that is being so finely applied onto us that we are not able to sense the finesse of it.
