    Just back from atomic shelter under my house to pick up 
    more blankets and pillows...

    There was HEAVY air-raid on Belgrade this night. Warning
    sirens turned on after series of heavy detonations... It
    was too late... 

    Whole building in which I live was shaking like it was an
    earthquake and windows screeched. I jumped out from bed 
    and run to window. I was almost blinded with great 
    orange-red ball of fire, some 5-6 km to the east of my 
    house. Two more explosions followed, probably cruise
    missiles...

    It was bloody near!

    I woke up my brother and we run to the atomic shelter.
    On the radio I heard that chemical plant was hit and
    something leaked... My friend, who just dialed me, told
    me that almost whole city felt some chlorine-like smell.

    They are talking on TV right now that air-warning is not
    over yet, that we should expect one more (aircraft) raid
    very soon and to immediately go to shelters...

    So... later,
                        Sloba

dear syndicalists,

this is yet another SOS note bombarding the cyberspace of our lists.
hopefully our notes will eventually hit some decisionmakers' minds and
prevent them from drawing the thin red line in neighbouring yugoslavia. the
silence in sofia is ever more deafening and people are having nightmares of
bombs exploding nearby & 6 year old sofia kids are intimidated that if they
misbehave the next NATO bomb will strike their kindergarden. how far one
can go in a post-cold war rhetorics?

locally, mainstream media tend to be split between pro & con NATO's strikes
for apparently national security is at stake. what is even more pathetic
the pro-communist opposition is waging a verbal war in the parliament for
few days now against the government and the rest of the MPs for their
neutral position of non-involvement yet having NATO in the background as
guarantee. thus the opposition leader mr. parvanov is in danger of being
jailed for spreading anti-YU policy in his country.

why has remapping of territories/markets/nations on the balkans been so
fond of  this medieval type of heroism for the last 150 years? is it sort
of doom because bal-kan in turkish means blood-honey?

with all my honey thoughts to branka, alexander, nikola, larisa, mirjana,
dejan, sarita, apsolutno and all friends beyond these dark balkan hills i
see through my sofia window,
-il
