Econo-Girl almost choked when she read Pravda today. Talk about another view of current events.
The front page of Pravda mentioned the "murder" of two of Saddam Hussein's "associates." Not execution, mind you. Murder.
But the most interesting tidbit is the April opinion piece on U.S. interventionism. "USA: Caring or Interfering?" Listen to their perspective.
"[T]he haste to jump into the Balkans when had the USA and the European Union left things to evolve on their own, controlled by those who understood the local social and ethnic fabric, the horrors perpetrated by Croats, Muslims and Serbs would have been at worst limited and easier to control."
WHAT!?!?! It was a directed genocide. And listen to this description of Slobodan Milosevic:
"[T]he fact is that all Slobodan Milosevic was doing was to rid his country of the scourge of Islamist terrorism, namely the KLA. Curiously, as Washington had sided with Bin Laden, it also wined and dined the KLA leadership on Capitol Hill."
Now Econo-Girl is aware that Pravda specializes in revisionist history. And there will be those among her intrepid readership who will mock her shock. But part of her mission is to offer differing perspectives to the American mind. And yes, I have very few readers. But you are one of them!
