US News: For Al Qaeda To Nuke Our Cities

Fox News : The Only Thing That Can Save America Now Is For Al Qaeda To Nuke Our Cities

Your New Reality
Wednesday, July 1, 2009

This Is Insane. Pure Treason. But understandable.

When tragedy and disaster strikes, people run to their TVs. Fox News pulled more than 10 million viewers on 9/11 and for a week or two after. They nearly hit those same ratings highs when Rupert Murdoch’s droogs fermented from fantasy into reality an unprovoked War On Iraq.

Imagine how many people would watch Fox News if American cities started getting blown apart by “major weapons”?

It’d be the mecca of ratings.

„Undercover“ (1943)

„Underground Guerrillas“ (U.S. 1944)

On July 27, 1943, Ealing Studios in Great Britain released the movie Undercover on the guerrilla resistance movement in Axis-occupied Yugoslavia. Undercover was re-released by Columbia Pictures on September 14, 1944 in the United States under the title Underground Guerrillas. The movie was originally entitled Chetnik and was to document the Yugoslav Chetnik resistance movement headed by Draza Mihailovich. Because the movie was released when British support for Mihailovich was waning, however, the film was re-edited and references to Mihailovich and the Chetniks were deleted. The movie is invaluable, nevertheless, as a cinematic account of the resistance movement headed by Draza Mihailovich and the Chetnik guerrillas and how the perception of their role changed.

John Clements starred as Captain Milosh Petrovitch, a Yugoslav guerrilla resistance leader, modeled closely on Draza Mihailovich. Mary Morris played Anna Petrovitch, his wife. Morris later appeared in the BBC Masterpiece Theatre production of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina in 1977 as Countess Vronsky, Dr. Who (1982), and the Ray Bradbury Theater (1988). Stephen Murray played Milosh Petrovitch’s brother, Stephan Petrovitch, modeled on Milosh Sekulich, a Serbian physician who had worked at the Municipal Hospital in Belgrade from 1935 to 1941. Michael Wilding played the guerrilla Constantine. He later starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s Under Capricorn (1949), The World of Suzie Wong (1960), and the Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1963). He would be married to Elizabeth Taylor from 1952 to 1957. Stanley Baker, who was fourteen years old, made his film debut in Undercover as Petar. He later starred in Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N. (1951), The Guns of Navarone (1961), and Zulu (1964). Baker turned down the role of James Bond in 1962.

Undercover was made by Ealing Studios in London, which was headed by Sir Michael Balcon. The film was directed by Sergei Nolbandov, a Russian émigré to Britain in the 1920s. Nolbandov had written the screenplay for Fire Over England (1937), which had starred Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, and The Four Just Men (1939). He had directed Ships with Wings for Ealing in 1941, which had starred John Clements, Michael Wilding, and Leslie Banks. In 1946, he was a producer for This Modern Time, a series of documentary newsreels. Michael Balcon had produced Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935. S.C. Balcon was the associate producer. The cinematography was by Wilkie Cooper. Frederic Austin composed the musical score.

Undercover was originally to be called Chetnik and was to be a movie account of the Chetnik resistance movement headed by Draza Mihailovich in German-occupied Yugoslavia. The movie was made by Ealing in collaboration with the Yugoslav-Government-in-Exile and with Dr. Milosh Sekulich (1900-1986), who was a technical advisor on the movie with W.E. Hart. Sekulich had worked on the original story and had written the first draft treatment, entitled “Chetnik”, with George Slocombe and Sergei Nolbandov. This draft was the basis for the movie which would be retiled Undercover and filmed in 1942 in Wales.

Sekulich was a representative of the Yugoslav-Government-in-Exile based in London and was the Yugoslav representative to the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Agency (UNRAA). He had been a physician in Belgrade and was the head of a unit for Internal Diseases and Tuberculosis at the Belgrade Municipal Hospital from 1935 to 1941. The character Dr. Stephan Petrovitch was based on his life and career. Sekulich had left Yugoslavia in 1941 and had landed in Britain where he carried a memorandum from the Serbian Orthodox Church and Draza Mihailovich detailing the mass murders, forced religious conversions, and atrocities committed against Serbs in Croatia and Bosnia by the Ustasha regime.

Sekulich fled German-occupied Serbia in September, 1941 intending to bring accounts of the genocide committed against Serbs by Croatians and Bosnian Muslims to the Allies. He first traveled to Turkey and then to Egypt. His circuitous trek took him to Sudan and then the Congo, finally reaching Lagos, Nigeria. From there he went to Portugal, then to Ireland, from where he traveled to his final destination, London. In London, he submitted the Appeals of the Orthodox Church and documentation of the Ustasha genocide and Roman Catholic forced conversions of Orthodox Serbs. He continued to do medical research and published medical treatises, such as The Classification of Pulmonary Tuberculosis (1953) and Tuberculosis, Classification, Pathogenesis and Management (1955), published by Heinemann.

The movie opens with a trumpet fanfare with the title „Yugoslavia Spring 1941“ over white blossoms blooming in spring on branches. The period is immediately before the German invasion of Yugoslavia on April 6, 1941. A voice-over narration presents the history of Yugoslavia.

„For centuries the Yugoslav people have sought and prayed for peace. For centuries peace has been denied them. Generation after generation in our lovely country has known the din of battle, the marching feet of invading armies, the massacre of brave men and women who would never accept defeat. This is our heritage, which has bred in our people their strength and their endurance in the cause of freedom, which led them in the last war to defy the whole might of German arms, which is guiding them now once again maybe to face the same enemy….Yugoslavia has made her choice…“ A Serbian schoolteacher gives this narration to her class. She tells them that the Yugoslav government sought to let the Germans walk into the country but that the King had prevented this, pointing to a framed portrait on the wall, a picture of King Peter II. A coup in Belgrade had replaced the regime under the Regent Paul, who had signed a pact wit Germany. Adolf Hitler planned to retaliate by destroying Yugoslavia as a country. The period is days before the Axis invasion when Yugoslavia was preparing for the expected assault. One student in the class, Danilo, played by Terwyn Jones, declares: “Slavs face their enemies.” The school is in Serbia. There is a chalkboard with sentences written in Serbian Cyrillic script.

The teacher is Anna Petrovitch, the wife of Captain Milosh Branko Petrovitch, a Yugoslav army officer who will form a guerrilla army in the mountains of Serbia following the German invasion and occupation. This was a clue that Milosh was modeled on Draza Mihailovich and the Chetnik guerrilla movement organized at Ravna Gora. He comes to the school and tells Anna about the preparations for war. By contrast, Josip Broz Tito had been a soldier in the Austro-Hungarian Army, was taken prisoner by the Russian Army, and had returned to the Balkans as a hardcore Bolshevik and Communist agitator and organizer, whose wife, Pelagija Belousova, was Russian….

Milan Martic

The former wartime leader of Croatian Serbs, Milan Martic, was transported to Estonia late on Friday to serve out his 35- year sentence for war crimes committed in Croatia. The transport of Martic from the Hague prison unit to Estonia is in line with the deal between the Estonian authorities and the UN, which deals with the implementation of the verdicts by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague.

Martic will serve his sentence in a prison in the eastern Estonian town of Tartu.

Martic was indicted by the ICTY in July 1995, but surrendered in 2002. He pleaded not guilty to all counts from the indictment, which included murder, persecution, inhumane treatment, forced displacement, plunder of public or private property and wanton destruction of cities, towns or villages.

According to the indictment, Martic „helped organize an ethnic cleansing campaign of Croats and other non-Serbs from Krajina where 78,000 lived and virtually the entire non-Serb population was forcibly removed, deported or killed“. His trial started in December 2005and ended in January 2007.

Martic was the last president of the self-declared Serb republic of Krajina until the summer of 1995, when Croatian troops took control of the area. Until then, almost 30 per cent of Croatia’s territory was controlled by the breakaway Serb republic.

During the war in Croatia, Martic held various leadership positions, including president, defense minister and interior minister. Since he left Croatia, Martic has been living in Bosnia and Serbia

Sreten Jocic

BELGRADE — Crime boss Sreten Jočić will have to unmask those behind the murders of various public officials in order to gain protected witness status, writes daily Blic. According to the daily, Jočić will have to tell police who was behind the murders of General Radovan Stojičić, Inspector Dragan Radišić, Police Chiefs Milorad Vlahović and Dragan Simić, Defense Minister Pavle Bulatović and Yugoslav Football Union Secretary General Branko Bulatović.

“Solving these murders is not the only condition for entering ‘negotiations’ with Jočić, nor is Serbia the only country that is dictating the conditions in the case. Croatia, Bulgaria and Holland have an equal interest in the crimes that were committed in those countries, which they believe Jočić can help solve,” Blic states, quoting a source close to senior Serbian government officials.

The source states that, for Serbia, what is most important is to finally solve the murders of the four police officials, Stojičić, Radišić, Simić and Vlahović.

Jočić will also be asked to give all the information he has on 15 murders on Belgrade’s streets, which are believed to have been linked to a Mafia war, Blic states.

Sarkozy verlangt die Entlassung von Liebermann
Wie Haaretz berichtet, soll der französische Präsident Nicolas Sarkozy den israelischen Ministerpräsident Benjamin Netanyahu aufgefordert haben, den israelischen Aussenminister Avigdor Liebermann zu entlassen. Hohe israelische Regierungsbeamte zitierten Sarkozy mit der Äusserung gegenüber Netanyahu: „Sie müssen diesen Mann loswerden.“ An die Stelle des rechtsextremen Politikers solle die „gemässigte“ Ex-Aussenministerin Tzipi Livni treten, habe Sarkozy empfohlen. Netanyahu war in der vergangenen Woche zu Gesprächen in Paris. Laut Medienberichten löste die Aussage von Sarkozy grossen Wirbel in Israel aus.
