well, let history judge. for the time being kosovo people are the main
victims. not serbs. only few serbs have died so far. these are statistics
for me. the reality. perhaps I am wrong. of course every dead person is
one too many, let us not argue about that.

that true. it is all going fast now, and there are view people to check
the fact. just now there was news on dutch tv, an arrest, which was very
shocking to me because I know that person well, but B92 does not want to
spread it. they do not trust the source. I am desperate now. is it true,
not true? but their attitude is the right one. I have to calm down.
