You want us to occupy you this way or that way? ...or... How to rob a country.

The Weight of Chains

This documentary is outstanding!
An upbeat, intelligent, highly informative presentation.

"If you thought you knew why Yugoslavia broke up, get ready for 2 hours of shocking facts that will shed a different light on Western intervention in the Balkans."

...
"What happened to Yugoslavia can be considered a classic example of colonization. A new flavor, but still colonization.

Rather than trying to colonize the unsettled areas of the world, why not just create a mess, then fix it, then own a chunk of the world that was already developed and consuming.

They wanted a Yugoslavia, who's rich natural resources would be at the disposal of multinational corporations, who's population would work at subsistence wages, who's economy offered no competition with the existing capitalist producers, and only new investment opportunities.

They wanted a Yugoslavia who's petroleum, engineering, mining, and automotive industries would be undone and de-industralized, and they wanted to abolish Yugoslavia's public sector services and social programs.

And they did it!"
