On Tuesday, February 12, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (as the Hague Inquisition is officially known) began hearing the case IT-02-54, charging Slobodan Milosevic with 66 counts of most abhorrent crimes including mass murder, crimes against humanity and genocide. Milosevic stands accused of planning, organizing and conducting the wars in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo over the past ten years, as part of a “joint criminal enterprise” to create something called “Greater Serbia,” a nation supposedly made up only of ethnic Serbs. Western media have billed the process a milestone event in international justice, a reckoning for all the victims of Yugoslav wars, and the triumph of Western will to stop violence in the name of human rights.
Of course, it is nothing of the sort.
What it is about is rewriting history. As George Orwell pointed out, “Who controls the past, controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” (1984) By trying, sentencing and imprisoning Milosevic, forces behind the Hague Inquisition can effectively redefine what happened over the past decade in the Balkans in a light most favorable to their actions and involvement. Having already assumed the roles of the Jury (as creators of the world’s public opinion) and the Executioner (as bombers and occupiers of lands anywhere in the world), they now wish to be the Judge and complete the circle.

Is it insane to push for war with Russia, a major nuclear power?
Is it insane to threaten Russia and bring false charges against her?
Is it insane to brag about killing "hundreds of Russians"?

On Wednesday morning, March 6th, the death of the President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, the leader of the Bolivarian revolution and the bitter rival of the United States, shocked the world. Will the U.S. become more active in the Venezuelan direction after his death? Is there a possibility of a "color revolution" in the country? It is an open secret that the West tried to overthrow the Chavez regime in 2002. Pravda.Ru turned to the President of the Russian Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov for an expert opinion.
