The Croatian Neo-Nazis attack on the Serbian majority region of Krajina in 1995 resulted in the expulsion of 200,000 to 300,000 Krajina Serbs. This was the largest population displacement during the Yugoslav breakup in the 1990s. It was the largest expulsion in Europe since World War II.
Was it the largest act of "ethnic cleansing" since the Holocaust?
In 1997, the names of 1,542 Krajina Serbs killed in the assault were recorded. Over 73% of the houses of Krajina Serbs were destroyed.
Was the Krajina expulsion an act of genocide not seen in Europe since World War II?
The US and Western media referred to it as an "exodus" and an assault to "oust" Serbian rebels, "Croatian Serbs", the oxymoron propaganda term coined by the US State Department. It has been covered-up and deleted from the mainstream history of the Balkan conflicts because the victims were Serbs and because a majority population was destroyed and denied self-determination.
The Bill Clinton Administration, along with the Pentagon, the US State Department, the CIA, DIA, NATO, Germany, and Military Professional Resources, Inc. (MPRI), were all involved in the planning and organization of the attack.
It is important to remember this largest act of population displacement and "ethnic cleansing" in Europe since the Holocaust because it shows that there were victims on all sides.
It also shows the hypocrisy and duplicity of the US policy in dealing with the Serb plight in the Balkans.
In Kosovo, the US policy was to support the local majority and grant self-determination to a minority. In Krajina, conversely, the US policy was to deny democracy and prevent self-determination.
Indeed, in Krajina, the US policy resulted in the total elimination and displacement of the local majority population, which under the Genocide Convention, was an act of genocide. Krajina demonstrates that all sides to the Balkans conflicts were victims.
