From the first day of the renewed Croatian life, lies have been spinning around our state. Serbs, who are the fiercest fighters against Croatia and its survival, are most frequently the source of those lies. Still, there are many other sources, and there are a lot of hungry dogs who spread bits and pieces of such a lie. Because of that, pollution is greater and wider, garbage is being spread, rotting on the road; as lies get more rotten they stink more; the older they are, the more false they become. Although the throwers of lies hope that the pile of thrown lies will eventually become as convincing as the truth, that can never happen. A lie cannot become the truth, but the people may become polluted by stench which had spread around them and may decide to move to another block in which garbage doesn't stink.
Let us at least try to count some of the lies which have been thrown on Croatia. First, that Croatia is essentially a fascist country and Croats a fascist people. Then, in accordance with that, that all symbols of Croatian history and statehood are also fascist. Third, that Croats killed in Jasenovac - how many millions of Serbs? Then, that even waving of a Croatian flag is a genocidal crime against Serbs. Fifth, that Tudman is a fascist and is rehabilitating fascism in Croatia. Sixth, that that is actually fascism, but at the same time also communism and an imitation of the Central Committee. Seventh, that Croatia with her waving of flags caused this war. Eight, that Croatia is a country of thieves, ruled by thieves, who had robbed the Croatian people. Ninth that Hercegovci have robbed other Croats, are uncivilized and have occupied Croatia. Therefore, we have to throw them out. Tenth, Croats hate and persecute Jews more than anyone else in the world. Eleventh, there isn't such a thing as Croatian history and culture. Twelfth, HDZ members are bolsheviks, they have taken money from the retirees; therefore, we have to get rid of the "party of dangerous intentions."
Could anyone list everything in so little space? Who could even try to list all the lies which would confirm the theses that I've just mentioned? Who could list the reasons because of which former UDBA [former Yugoslav secret service] agents founded more than 30 newspapers? That wave of new papers in Croatia reached such proportions that one day we will study it as a strategic phenomenon in the war against Croatia. KOS [former Yugoslav counter-intelligence service] or UDBA or MI5 or MI6 or BND, who knows who is involved in all that. Whoever was involved, they decided that Croatia should be attacked from inside, because newly independent countries do not have well formed protection mechanisms, which by the way, exist in all countries in the world. The plan was based on two ideas. On the continuous blackmail from the European Council based on the fabricated violations of human rights and press freedom in Croatia, and on the other hand, while Croatia's hands are tied with the blackmail, on the copious inflow of money and continuous launching of new publications.
All those publications are the same, their design is the same, even their primitive tastelessness is so identical that even from up close one can not guess which weekly is which. Garbage which is published in them, lies which make every honest man squirm, curses and vulgarities which disgust every normal man, huge titles in which lies pile up in identical sentences, in the same rhythm, they pour on you from newspaper kiosks with such force that you wish to run away from those tasteless and primitive howls and stop reading newspapers. Recently, I have been surprised when I found out the possible source of the "design" ideas for the journalistic garbage published in Croatia. Serb Telegraf looks exactly the same. Probably the "publishing house" behind them is also the same.
Putting aside graphic design, we should point out that the goal of tastelessness, although it is in the nature of those fat editors, was to draw attention. They wanted to be noticed, because the only real goal of those KOS "editors" was to spread lies for five years. Lie, another lie, then another and yet another. Then you blackmail someone and he, in order to get out of that, hands over the first state secret. And that other person, who is already your man, but infiltrated into the highest levels of Croatian government, will sell you another secret for a lot of money. Thus, through illegal means you obtain several true secrets and on them build a tower of lies.
At the beginning of the war, Serbs were boasting that they had their people everywhere in the Croatian society. If we observe newly composed papers , some thirty of them, we would have to agree with that statement. The strategy of those their people was very simple from the first day. They were in charge of mud slinging.
The duties of the fighters were determined in advance. It is well known who among them produces shit, who collects it, who adds stench to it, who shapes shit with his hands, and who finally throws the shit. The best shit throwers get a lot of praise, and besides that receive international protection. Because, the international institutions for protection of human rights mostly worry about the freedom for cursing and slandering, unfettered freedom for lies and mud slinging over the Croatian public life.
We are faced with an ecological threat. Even more serious: an ecological catastrophe. Around us, there is so much garbage and stench that we have to think about how we can clean our quarter, because we will not achieve anything by running away from it. Shit can be cleaned with water and lies disinfected by the truth.
