Every now and then I visit this site only to find nothing has been posted by K for some time now. I still am concerened for her and her countris welfare, as I'm sure many other Americans are. I would hope each time that I come to this site that I will find something of an update on how K is doing and all others that have had to endure this awful war that was perpetrated by Clinton and Blair.

I just wanted to say that I am not a proud American. The things that we have done (our government) are grossly unfair to all the innocent people, and that just because a few are wrong shouldn't mean that all are judged based on those that truly are guilty. I will say that Milosevic and Clinton are like two boys fighting in the playground over the swing set.

Have you heard anything from Katrina lately? The updates during the war were great. But how is she now? How does she see things in her country now that the jets have stopped dropping bombs on them.
I still care even though the war is said to be over...

I e-mailed you 7-10 days ago and have not (yet) heard a response. Did you receive it? I am Georgetown University ethics professor who is editing a volume on the Kosova/Yugoslavian war with some 75 international contributors, including over 15 Serbian authors--from Belgrade University. I would like to use selections from your war diary in the book. Can you please help Me? I am happy to send more info about the book (table of contents and list of contributors, etc.). Can you please reply ASAP? We go to press in six weeks, and your contribution would help us both! We don't want exclusive rights and will pay to use it! I look forward to your prompt reply!

I just stumbled accross your web page and have been reading all your past correspondance with horror and great sadness.
I can understand your anger towards NATO and Clinton. Please know there are many, many people here who are also outraged by the decision to bomb your country. It is so terribly confusing to know what, if anything one can do or what to believe. I cannot imagine what it is like for all of you, except hearing my Father tell me stories of being in the Blitz in England.
My brother lived in Yugoslavia for a year and I know it is an incredibly beautiful country. It must break your heart to see the distruction.
I can only send you my love and support. I don't know what else to do. The hostility and violence of mankind is a complete mystery to me. It just makes me cry. I pray there can be peace for you. Sincerely, Mia Fortescue
Thu Jun 24 11:33:55 MDT 1999
As a true American, from the bottom of my Heart, I truly apologize to you for this hideous barbarity that has beeninflicted upon your brave country! There is nothing inherently American in this outrageous bombing attack, and I just want you to know that all good Americans will always valiantly fight to protect the Christed Ones like you! I live in utter shame!
Thu Jun 24 07:59:31 MDT 1999
Thanks for writing again. I will really appreciate if you keep me informed of what it is going on in your country and about your feelings in particular. This is the only way of getting politically unbiased information for me. It is really a bad joke that some mentally disadvantaged have accessed your intimate open-hearted diary. Look at the writings of Nazi Tony from Scotland, for example. He cannot write a single sentence without making several spelling or grammar mistakes. An illiterate individual judging high political things. I wish Albanian refugees flooded into his home town, bore "1000's of people", claimed independence and then his illiterate equals from all over the world accused him of mass killings? And what torture chambers and concentration camps others write about? Have you ever heard of innocence presumption? Clinton's cronies are the only witnesses and judges. Who of them cares whose tortures are found and who was tortured in them? And once Reuters showed that NATO KFOR found and Albanian torture chamberÖ And Serbs were tortured in there. One of the victims KFOR couldn't save. What the brave defenders of the weak did? They were courageous enough to disarm and march out the terrorists.

I think that the Serb people think that the world is against them, if you were to knock on my door I would invite you in, your people have been dragged into a war which has ruined the whole of your country.
But if I was to see on of your police men, or soldger I would wish that some one would treat them in the same way that they have treated their fellow countryman.
It is unfortunate that your country has in authority men who have very little disreguard for life. their only friend are the Russians. I dont think they can help too much when the Western World is helping them out by giving them billions of $$$.
The only way your country can rebuild its self is whith the help of the people who bombed it, and they wont do that untill it is run by a person who understands how to treat its fellow countryman with respect and diginity.
When that happens we will rebuild your bridges.
(We are already giving you help putting back the power, didnt you know that ?)

katarina, ne znam da li ces nastaviti sa pisanjem, ne znam ni da li jos uvijek citas ove 'thoughts', ali bih volio da ne prestanes. s obzirom na to da raja i rodbina iz yuge rutinski lazu i uljepsavaju situaciju, ovo nam je jedini relativno objektivan izvor informacija. nadam se da ces uskoro poceti pisati o ustanku protivu slobe- oruzanom, ako je ikako moguce. ja sam tvoje godiste. sa 14 sam zbog njega napustio bosnu, a onda sa 19 i beograd. u septembru dolazim da ga ubijem, ako jos bude na vlasti, a nadam se da nece. sada je napravio najvecu gresku u karijeri. da je predao kosovo bez otpora, ili barem nakon prvih bombi, znam da se niko ne bi bunio. ovako je probudio nezamisliv patriotizam, a onda mrtav-hladan predao unisteno kosovo. sada kad u beograd pocnu da stizu i unisteni pissed-off srbi sa kosova, nadam se da ce imati dovoljno pameti da utekne na kipar, dok jos moze.

Do you do anything else other than post rude refutes to this board? I think YOU are the one who has an overinflated authoritarian ego, and really has not a clue to reality.

Before Yugoslavia starting in 1998, I thought that the media was pretty good at covering things, and that CNN was merely doing their best to report comprehensively. I wondered what the Bosnian Serbs did when Time magazine showed "Pale gets bombed" on its cover. But between my high school years and now, my opinions have shifted significantly.
I now know that many of the "atrocity" stories, the Racak "massacre," the bombing of Muslim civilians in Sarajevo, were staged or made up. So I am very cynical about U.S. media now and will always be. Yes Serbian forces have exacted a toll on the Albanians living in Kosovo, but it might have only been slight violence and not a massive pushing out if NATO did not start bombing... besides this I see Albanian nationalist intolerance as what propelled Milosevic to power in the first place -- "you will never be beaten again" he told the Kosovo Serbs in 1991.
At any rate I am sad that all sides of the conflict have suffered terribly now at NATO's hands. It's unfortunate that so many "Americans" actually believe what the top media/gov on down spew, as if some of us don't know any better. One AP wire story recently had Albanians being forced by Serbs to wear orange reflective (construction worker) vests while digging their own mass graves... gee, I guess the Serbs really didn't want to be detected eh. And why is a field of individual mounds called a mass grave (which is one big pit, and certainly without numbered markers!)
That the U.S./Germany encouraged the splitup of Yugoslavia since 1990 is on record in many ways. That my leaders are using the Muslim Albanians as a fig leaf for NATO "humanitarian bombing" is quite cynical. Will Armenia be next? Who knows. At my university a group came together in early April to protest the war and u.s. foreign policy in general; we are at stopthebombing.dhs.org. also we are planning a fall conference =)
I really have enjoyed reading wardiary.org and i hope that life improves for all Yugoslavians someday. for now I will just say I'm very sorry for what my country has done to yours. Yours is not the first or last country.
Sun Jun 20 15:49:57 MDT 1999
I really appreciate you putting your life out for us all to know about. It really helps the world to get an inside view of what is happening there. My heart breaks for all the people on both sides, Serbs and Albanians. My son is in Albania volunteering to help the Albanian refugees, but he would just as willingly help Serbian refugees, and quite possibly may end up doing so.
Sun Jun 20 10:52:31 MDT 1999
This is a messsage for KDOG. Hey K-DOG: Your stupidity and hasty judgment is comical yet outrageous. You are an ignorant, conceited and stupid fuck who passes judgement on others without having any idea what is going on in the world. You are so stupid that you cannot fathom your own limitations and insignificance. Your sickness lies not so much in the fact that you are mis-infomed, but in your self-deception and hypocricy that makes you feel confident despite your feeble-minded emotional reasoning.
Sun Jun 20 00:43:20 MDT 1999
Torture chambers? And now concentration camps?
Do you really expect us to have an inkling of sympathy toward you or your country or your people, even the so-called "innocent" civilians?
The more video, photographs, and testimony I see, the sicker I feel....is this 1999 or is this 50 years ago? True, the same things are occuing right now in places such as Sierra Leone or Sri Lanka, but this is Europe! And of all places, I think you would have learned something from history.
But alas, blind nationalism clouds your vision, and political silence only suggests you are conspirators.
May someone have mercy upon your wretched nation.

Clinton's war was illegal and immoral. I do hope the people of Yugoslavia -- and the rest of the world -- realize there was a lot of American opposition to the killing.

Your country has really done some FINE work in Kososvo. A beautiful torture chamber in the police basements, piles of human remains at innumerable locations, blood-stains in a house which are so plentiful they pooled in the basement, and continuing looting and burning as your're drunken defeated troops depart....more then enough work to keep war crimes investigators busy for the next few years.
I'm sure you're real proud of your brothers, fathers, and uncles handiwork. I'm sure they tell you that none of this has happened and you believe them, just like you seem to believe anything which puts your country in a good light. In reality, your entire generation of Serbs will go to their deathbed denying what has happened and blaming their misfortune on NATO. Your people are indeed a sad and miserable group.
Thu Jun 17 16:39:21 MDT 1999
I am not surprised that some people have lost the plot as far a the Kosavo senario are concerned - In that We as NORMAL can ignore that the Serbs have killed 1000's of people and we know look to the point that the Alabaian Person is KNOW BACK IN HIS/HERE country and why not take some reactive action to any serbs there ---- thets not forget they are the PEOPLES who killed many thousands of INOCENT ALBAINIANS I have MADE MANY E_MAILS TO U AND I FIND THAT U ARE VERY SELECTIVE WHO MADE u THE MEDIA POLICE
i think that K is a serb who is so keyed up in here own message to life that she can't - as we have seen LIFE IN THE REAL WORLD.
iwould be very surprised if this message got thro or was even viewed by U - I accept that as part of ure small minded and ANAL view on/in life If this message makes it to the posted it will be the 2/15

Dear K: I have kept on turning to your diary every day. Please keep on writing. In a world where truth is shadowed by endless lies your diary provide some solide ground for us to stand on with confidence and trust. Besides this site has become a international debating meeting in some way. I have read all the responses posted and have some idea of what people are really thinking. No use to turn to the media. They have no credit these days. So the war is over, is it? Is it still too early to judge? What before you maybe even more difficult. Please keep us informed of the process of reconstruction.
Wed Jun 16 10:19:32 MDT 1999
Please keep this diary up, its needed even more than before. People will start to lose interest because of the 'peace' let them see the aftermath which will last ten times than the war.

Please if you wish to continue writing then do so. It is a breathe of fresh air when you write. I know that there is much to been done in your country and thatit will be difficult for you. I pray that things will go better for you and that the sirens that continue to go off in your head will one day stop too. Please keep writing whenever you can. I enjoy hearing of your hardship not because it makes me glad but because it helps me understand what is going in your country. I pray that Milosovic will be shown out of office and pray that a new, strong, moral leader will follow him.
All the best to you and yours:

It makes me sick to hear how your neighbour states behave in this difficult situation (recall that Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania supported Hitler Germany in WWII). I do not know what these slav peoples are guided by. Maybe by the Western media? Actually now and then I read washintgotpost, daily telegraph, CNN, BBC and other pro-Western sites and I am astonished that they do not write about Serbs fleeing from Kosovo. They write about 20.000 thousand Albanians coming back but not a word of 30.000 Serbs getting away! Though, of course, this fact is impossible to misinterpret in a way helpful to NATO as they are always doing. Or maybe these slavs are simply lackeys as Yugoslav ambassador in Russia called them? The whole situation seems to be a real ordeal for Serbia. I do not know who can help you for, as I wrote earlier, I am sure deliberately or not they would not give up this evil business that easy.

I'm glad the bombing has stopped and you and your family are alive! Please keep writing, although you say that maybe now no-one will be interested in what you have to say, I for one, am still very interested.
This is the part of war that the movies always glamorize, and American's in particular, with all of our war movies, live with such a mythology of "spreading democracy" (never mind that politically we support totalitarianism in other countries to our own advantage.
I think that the mythology is slowly losing it's power. Keep writing!

Dear K this is the first time that i have visited a site about the current war in Kosovo and i would like to point out what a good site that you have and that i condem the Nato bombing and that i am glad to see the whole thing ending.
Thank you for the insight into the war in Kosovo it was very inlightening.

I became aware of your site through Znet, and have followed closely. It's as hard for us here in LA to imagine what you've been through, as I'm sure it will be for you to imagine the harsh reality I'm about to share.
On June 10th, the announcement that the bombing would finally stop came at about 12:45pm here.
Understand, that this is a time when soap-operas are on tv. The news stations here in Los Angeles, on almost a weekly basis, interrupt any tv programming in order to give a live broadcast of one of the frequent car chases we have here on our freeways -- and the news continues their car-chase reporting for as long as the car chase takes, even if that means 3 to 4 hours.
However, not a single station here in LA even bothered to interrupt their soap operas in order to give the news that our air-war had finally come to an end. Only cable such as CNN covered it. The other networks saved the story for their normally scheduled broadcasts, around 4pm. Soap operas were too important to interrupt.
So you can see our priorities here. First, car chases. Second, soap operas. And finally, news that our war may finally be ending.
Believe me, those of us here who don't live in oblivion and ignorance, are feeling great shame and sadness in regards to it all.
Your diary has been a testament to your courage -- your writings amplify the shallowness of our own sheltered lives here in Tinseltown. I wish you luck, safety, and a bombless future.

This is a message to Justin Volpe: Justin, you are shining example of a bigot who judges many things he doesn't know much about. You seem to have a destructive but self-serving mind that finds it easy to rationalize its sickness. You are a powerless wimp who makes judgement about power and war while forgetting your own utter insignificance.

I completely dissociate myself from the actions of the Brirish government in Yugpslavia and pray daily for the victims of the bombing in Serbia and Kosovo. Neither we nor our Parliament have been consulted. The ordinary people of this country are almost voiceless. We fear for the long-term consequences of this terible action both in your country and in the wider world.
God bles and keep you.
