The Bosnian War was an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1995, after it declared independence. The war is commonly seen as having started on 6 April 1992, following a number of earlier violent incidents. The war ended on 14 December 1995. The main belligerents were the forces of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and those of Herzeg-Bosnia and Republika Srpska, proto-states led and supplied by Croatia and Serbia, respectively.[1]

NATO countries played a large part, both in the war itself and behind the scenes. Eventually they inverted with a bombing campaign, presented as a humanitarian intervention.

Rape war propaganda

A part of the war propaganda was lurid allegations of "rape camps", where the Serbs were accused of pursuing an officially sanctioned policy of mass rape. "Go forth and rape," a Bosnian Serb commander supposedly publicly instructed his troops. The source of that widely circulated story could never be traced. The commander's name was never produced.[2]

Bosnian Serb forces were said to have raped from 20,000 to 100,000 Muslim women; the reports varied widely. The Bosnian Serb army numbered not more than 30,000 or so, many of whom were engaged in desperate military engagements. Michael Parenti pointed out that "common sense would dictate that these stories be treated with some skepticism. Instead, they were eagerly embraced by Western leaders and their media acolytes."[2]

Thousands of captive Muslim women were reportedly impregnated and forced to give birth to Serbian children. But after hostilities ceased and UN troops occupied all of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the mass rape camps never materialized. Hearings held by the European Community's Committee on Women's Rights in February 1993 rejected the estimate of 20,000 Muslim rape victims because of the lack of evidence. At the hearings, representatives from the UN War Crimes Commission and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees concluded that not enough evidence could be found to sustain charges of a Serbian mass-rape campaign.[2]

Along with the references to "rape camps" were the equally unsubstantiated stories about Serbian "death camps" in northern Bosnia. These tales were launched by among others reporter Roy Gutman. Though seriously lacking in confirmed sources, Gutman's stories were eagerly picked up, causing an international outcry that helped mobilize world opinion against the Serbs. Gutman won a Pulitzer Prize for his stories.[2]

The 1995 "Srebrenica massacre" refers to the July 1995 killing of a number of Muslim men and boys in and around Srebrenica in Bosnia. The western Official Narrative puts the number killed at 8,000 and spends a large effort to stamp it as a genocide. Phillip Corwin, the highest ranking UN official in Sarajevo at the time, estimated the actual number at probably around 800.

Related Quotation

Daily Mirror“During the Bosnian War, the Daily Mirror reported that a Bosnian woman died "after being forced to give birth to a dog." Variations on this bizarre and biologically incredible story were carried also in Germany's Bild am Sonntag and Italy's La Repubblica, with lurid accounts of how fiendish Serbian gynecologists implanted canine fetuses in the woman's womb. The dog story was also embraced by an obscure West German parliamentary deputy, Stefan Schwarz, who gained instant fame by telling gruesome tales in the Bundestag about Serbian burnings, castrations, the roasting of children in ovens, and the use of poison gas.”
