MARKALE ATTACK WAS FRAMED LIKE MANY OTHERS IN HISTORY
It was the same as in the case of America’s joining the Vietnam War and the bombing of North Vietnam, when it was claimed that “North Vietnamese torpedo boats attacked the US destroyers in the Vietnamese waters.”
Interview by Jovanka Nikolić
BELGRADE, August 25 /SRNA/ - The attack on the Markale Market in August 1995 was one in a series of fabricated events, but this will not be acknowledged until all the participants of the then events leave the political and public stage, military and political analyst Miroslav Lazanski said in an interview with Srna.
He recalls that the expert report which stated that the shell could have flown in from any position had been on the table of the UN secretary general at the time, and that “they didn’t even look at it,” and that the French Television TF1 had then published that the attack had been framed.
“The experts have never precisely found that the massacre at the Markale Market was done by the Serbs, but it was ascribed to the Serbs and afterwards followed all those things that happened in the area of Sarajevo and beyond,” said Lazanski.
The warring sides in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Yugoslavia in general realised that the status of the victim was the best status in the bloody civil war, said Lazanski.
“All three nations in Bosnia and Herzegovina committed crimes and all were victims too, but to the Muslims the role of the victim paid out in the sense that they caused a military intervention from the West and it is a fact that they were going for it intentionally,” said the analyst.
It was the same, Lazanski added, as in the case of America’s joining the Vietnam War and the bombing of North Vietnam, when it was claimed that “North Vietnamese torpedo boats attacked the US destroyers in the Vietnamese waters.”
“Because of that, the United States escalated the hostilities and 35 years later, Robert McNamara admitted that it was a made-up incident, the so-called Gulf of Tonkin incident, which never actually happened, but it was a cause for the war that left 2.5 million Vietnamese and 55,000 Americans dead,” said Lazanski.
The same case was with Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, which were claimed to have existed, and that prompted the operation on Iraq, leaving more than 5,000 US troops and between 150,000 and 200,000 Iraqis killed without ever finding any weapons of mass destruction at all.
“The world is full of such framed precedents, full of incidents that did not happen spontaneously, but were rather planned and fabricated, and afterwards occurred important historical events – wars, interventions, redrawing of borders.
“We may be one of the latest examples in history of how it was happening,” stated Lazanski.
On August 28, 1995, during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a shell that exploded in the Markale Market in Sarajevo killed 43 people and wounded 75 more.
The attack was ascribed to the Serbs even though a UN-formed committee has never officially established from which side the shell had arrived, but the incident was used as the cause for NATO bombing of the Serb positions.
