George Person: Serbs' worst sin RESPONSE

I am as Slavic as you are Mr. D S Ratz...and I expect as well as demand that any member of my cultural heritage to be an outstanding specimen of peace love and brotherhood in the sight of men as well as God...
 
That they never open the door of opportunity in allowing a non-Slav to put down any aspect of my cultural heritage as cruel and barbaric...I'm trying to maintain the image of the Slavic culture as you are trying to drag it down as vengeful--Slavs do not seek vengeance--the very meaning of the word Slav is "Glory, "signifying the glory of existence...
 
If you live in America, it means you are American...not Russian...you are a son of freedom-we believe in independence and the rights of others to pursue their lives peacefully and live within the law.....what went on over in Yugoslavia was sheer madness after the fall of communism and the death of Tito.
 
I've met a few Albanians, and I'll say this, she was scared to death! She met up with armed soldiers one night, and didn't think she was going to live to tell about it.
 
Yugoslavia is a cauldron of race and religious hatred...anyone who denies that is denying the obvious...
 
I hope you came to this country because of freedom and not just to make money....
 
Because free men know that all men deserve to be free notwithstanding their race religion and politics - and death and destruction is wrong...there's no bottom line when you are six feet under.
 
I expect more from Russians, I expect them to be outstanding right down to the last neuron racing through their brain - that they are a people who can see the truth and can admit a wrongdoing when they see it...and not over react angrily, living in denial as to  the crimes being committed...President Clinton was a 1960's pot smoking peacenik. He would never bomb Yugoslavia unless something very terrible was going on over there.
 
Yet, I do seem to recall, that Muslim Serbians viciously attacked Christian Serbs...the hatreds run long and deep in that part of the world...and I've seen it in this world...there
truly is alot of hatred between these two groups right down to the bone...it doesn't surprise me genocide occurred over there, I've seen the hatred between the two groups in the office I work at, and was very very intense...
 
Be a peace maker, and not a man carrying a peacemaker...peace is the proper road, and justice for our neighbors is the divinest course...
