- The world press more often and more openly
writes about enormous NATO losses in their complete failure called "air
strikes campaign". As the day when the aggressor will have to give
an accounting and inform the families of their killed soldiers and pilots
is inevitably approaching, the strategy experts of this alliance are trying
to resort to some cheap tricks. However, the facts which reveals not only
the world media, but the Russian intelligence too, are more than painful
- The Greek daily "Atinaiki",
whose writing NATO never impugned, wrote ten days ago about at least 88
killed alliance soldiers and 32 downed aircraft. Other European newspapers
also wrote about these and similar losses of the aggressor. The clandestine
role of the 424th American hospital in Thesalonika is secret no more, and
neither is the fact that metallic coffins are coming every day into the
British base in Cyprus.
- These and similar "unpleasant"
information, the alliance has been trying to conceal these days in a very
awkward way. In the morning news, Radio Toronto recently reported the
crash of a NATO aircraft 'in Israel' (!?), when the pilot and '22 parachuters'
were killed. Allegedly, those were amateur parachuters who had come from
America to train for some sort of a championship. The news would have been
swallowed if only 72 hours earlier the news had not leaked on the crash
of a helicopter 'in Japan' (three killed), then another crash of F-15 over
'Puerto Rico' (one killed), then new helicopter accidents 'in Kentucky'
(eleven killed) and Arizona (12 killed).
- The only connection to Kosovo was made
by an American TV reporter when she was talking about the 'Kentucky' accident,
but it was only said that they had been 'training' for their September
schedule in this Serbian province.
- However, even the laymen know that these
fabricated reports are only the attempts for creating such a situation,
suitable for sending messages to the hundreds of families about "tragic
losses during military drills". Even the tragic-comic comments have
been heard that CNN and other spokesmen of the alliance could launch the
news that "three newly-trained pilots" have died.
- NATO knows very well that four F-4 aircraft
of the German Airforce did not come back from this monstrous mission over
Yugoslavia. According to the information of the Russian Ministry of Defence,
one two-men crew died when the aircraft exploded in the air, while other
three crews were found and captured by the Yugoslav Army.
- In the air combat on March 26, seven
kilometers to the South of Pancevo, a Yugoslav MIG-29 downed an American
F-16C, whereas another four bombers of the same type were downed by the
Yugoslav anti-aircraft defence. Two Canadian F/A-18C were shot down and
destroyed together with their pilots 11 kilometers to the South of Ruma,
and because of that the American northern neighbour sent additional aircraft
to Italy on March 30.
- Yugoslav MIG-21 managed to blow up an
American two-seater F-15E on March 27, which the BBC reported the same
day. At least one "Tornado IDS" was downed between March 24 and
26. This two-seater was completely blown up in the sky on the South of
Pancevo. Another German "Tornado" was downed on March 29, but
the pilot managed to eject himself.
- According to Yugoslav and Russian sources,
one British "Harrier" was down on March 30, and another one on
April 17. A large group of multi-purpose fighter aircraft found themselves
in the cross fire of the light anti-aircraft artillery and had to leave
the Yugoslav sky with lots of damage. On April 15, agencies reported about
the sad end of so-called "Warthog", American specialized fighter
aircraft for anti-tank fighting A-10A.
- The greatest success of the Yugoslav
Army is definitely, demystification of the carefully kept secret of the
- The invisible fighter F-117A was shot
down into the plough-lands of the village of Budjanovci, hit by the earth-to-air
missile. Soon after that, Radio Zagreb reported the forced landing of another
Stealth aircraft at the Zagreb airport. According to Reuters, and some
other media houses, there is a real possibility that even a third "invisible"
aircraft faced a similar sad destiny. On April 6, an aircraft which bombarded
the oil refinery in Novi Sad that night, was shot down above Fruska Gora
mountain early in the morning.
- NATO did not have better luck in its
helicopter missions, in which a large number of commandos lost their lives.
One HH60-G helicopter with two pilots and 12 commandos came down between
Bijeljina and Tuzla on March 28, and only a day later, the same destiny
hit another two helicopters of similar type. According to Russian sources,
a NATO aircraft and two CH-53/53E helicopters were shot down at about 200
kilometers to the South-West from Belgrade, on April 2, with 58 CREW members,
who are all believed to have died in the accident.
- The Yugoslav air defence shot down a
considerable number of aircraft, not identified yet, so that the list of
the dead aggressor's soldiers is not final yet. In any case, it is becoming
bigger and bigger every day in this aggression on Yugoslavia.
- Therefore, it no wonder there is a panicky
fear of NATO from facing the families of the dead soldiers and ridiculous
attempts to hide the truth.
