I'm not sure what your reasons are for posting this, but it is interesting. The portion titled Collapse of the Yugoslav Economy is astounding. I would like to see more declassified documents about our plans/policies in other countries.

It's a little frightening to learn that so many of those paranoid conspiracy nuts were right...


It's an interesting story, somewhat emotional and romantic even? Maybe more to me because I was a kid here when it was all happening (born in '84). If you're into conspiracy stuff, watch "The Weight Of Chains". Although I believe the film is heavily biased and greatly downplays the responsibility of serbia itself in the conflict, blaming most of it on outside forces. Nevertheless, it's very entertaining and paints a grim picture of foreign interests at play and their influence on the post-war politics.

I'll check it out. Thanks.
