Syndicate: Re: Open response to Michael Benson

Vesna_Novakovic <ansev@EUnet.yu>

Dear Michael,   thank you for your view of the things. Obviously you, for
whatever reason, do not wish to see things as they are.  Everybody is
entitled to their point of view and I can appreciate that we do not  see
eye to eye. I, however, have no desire to argue with you but would like to
clear a few points, in response to your open accusation of  the Serbs'
theft of the JNA. Your point that the JNA used to be compraised of young
men  drafted from all corners of the former Yugoslavia absolutely stands.
But do you,  now, actually believe that the Serbs "stole" all of them, or
don't you  think the lads from Slovenia, Croatia, ect. went "home" taking
with  them what they hadn't destroyed ?

I hope you, Vesna, and you Slobodan, stay well

No harm to you  either, Vesna  Novakovic
