There was no ethnic cleansing

According to Croat daily, “Jutarnji list”, the former US ambassador in Croatia, Peter Gelbraith declared
that there was no ethnic cleansing of Serbs in Croatia during the operations Storm and Lightning. “Serbs left by themselves”,
said Gelbraith. Knowing that the criminal operations were sponsored by the USA government, Bill Clinton and his administration,
and that Peter Gelbraith was a part of it, it is most natural that he tries to minimize the crimes that were committed by then
Croat president Franjo Tudjman and recently accused generals Gotovina an Markac.
If in spite of testimonies of those expelled, 200 thousands of them, and those 4000 who committed the “suicide”, Mr. Gelbraith
insists that they left voluntarily, then there is a huge problem of moral and other forms in the US politics and the so called US democracy.
On the other hand, one could say that in Bosnia or in Kosovo there was no ethnic cleansing or “genocide” either. Abanians left Kosovo by themselves
to be safe in the mountains, and the victims of Racak committed the collective suicide.
By trying to justify those Croat generals, Mr. Gelbraith only confirms that USA was directly involved in military operations against the Serbian
population in Croatia in 1995, and the programmed ethnic cleansing.
