>EU File: Reds, nationalists form new government in Belgrade; Serbian Socialist leader Dacic visits Moscow, meets Mironov, Milosevic’s exiled family

>By virtue of the slavish Slavic attachment that Serbia’s nationalists and socialists have for Moscow, it is apparent that this former Yugoslav republic is little more than an exclave of neo-Soviet Russia and a communist thorn in the underbelly of NATO. As Serbia’s Russophile forces jostle about to organize a coalition government and lock out President Boris Tadic pro-European Union party from power, “ex”-communist Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) leader Ivica Dacic traveled to Moscow today to consult with Kremlin lackey Sergei Mironov, leader of the Just Russia party and president of the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council. Mironov, by the way, is the same Putin croney who appeared in a photograph taken at an Interior Ministry firing range, in which FSB defector Alexander Litvinenko’s mugshot was being used for target practice.

Pictured above: SPS chairman Dacic and portrait of predecessor Slobodan Milosevic at what appears to be a 2004 party congress, at which time Milosevic was in United Nations custody at The Hague. While visiting Moscow, the first story below reports, Dacic might also meet his mentor’s exiled widow Mirjana (“The Red Witch”) Markovic and son: “The Socialists have conditioned their participation in a future cabinet on a pardon for Markovic and Slobodan Milosevic’s son, Marko.” The same story continues: “In the past year, top Serbian leaders have frequently visited Moscow for talks with the Russian leadership.” Indeed.

Serbia Socialist Leader Visits Moscow
16 May 2008

Belgrade _ The leader of the Serbian Socialists, Ivica Dacic, traveled to Moscow on Friday in an apparent bid to secure Russian support for his party’s involvement in the new coalition government.

In Moscow Dacic is scheduled to meet the president of the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Council of the Federation, Sergey Mironov, and other senior officials.

However, Belgrade media have speculated that Dacic, who is now a key player in Serbian politics, might meet members of Slobodan Milosevic’s family, including Milosevic’s widow, Mirjana Markovic.

Some media have suggested that talks with Milosevic’s family might be connected to behind-the-scenes negotiations about a government coalition between the Socialists and the pro-European Democrats.

The Belgrade daily Blic reported that the Socialists have conditioned their participation in a future cabinet on a pardon for Markovic and Slobodan Milosevic’s son, Marko, both of whom are charged with abuse of power and money laundering.

However, the negotiations between the Socialists, the Radicals and the bloc headed by outgoing Premier Vojislav Kostunica have already produced a “general agreement on principles” for a coalition government at the national level and in the city of Belgrade.

In the past year, top Serbian leaders have frequently visited Moscow for talks with the Russian leadership.

The unholy union coalescing between the SPS and the nationalists of Tomislav Nikolic’s Serbian Radical Party and Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica’s Democratic Party of Serbia is not surprising and will ensure that the issue of de facto Kosovar independence remains a sore spot and potential flash zone between EU/NATO in the one camp and Serbia and Russia in the other camp.

Serbians say they’re close to coalition government
May 16, 2008

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia’s nationalists and Socialists from late strongman Slobodan Milosevic’s party said Friday they are close to forming a coalition government that would sideline pro-Western parties’ declaration of election victory.

The parties said they had agreed late Thursday on a general set of principles for a new “national” government. More meetings will be held Friday to work out the details of a possible agreement, ultranationalist Gordana Pop Lazic said.

A deal between the far-right Radical Party, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica’s Popular Coalition and Milosevic’s Socialists would allow the nationalists to return to power for the first time since Milosevic was ousted in 2000.

They have teamed up to challenge pro-Western President Boris Tadic’s coalition, which won the most votes in last Sunday’s general elections — but not enough to govern alone.

Tadic has criticized the nationalists’ attempts to form a government, and pledged to do all in his power to prevent it. He also has asked the Socialists to join his government.

At stake are Tadic’s plans to bring Serbia closer to the European Union after years of international isolation under Milosevic.

The nationalists, however, want to halt Serbia’s integration into the EU because more than half of the bloc’s member states have recognized Kosovo, the ex-Serbian province Serbs cherish as their medieval heartland. Predominantly ethnic Albanian Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in February.

The nationalists said they had agreed with the Socialists on governing principles — including pro-European integration — but only with Kosovo as part of Serbia. Other priorities would include fighting crime and corruption and developing the economy, the party said in a statement.

Tadic’s For a European Serbia coalition is backed by the pro-Western Liberal Party and ethnic Hungarians lawmakers.

The Liberals said Friday that if the nationalists form the government, the pro-Western camp should form a so-called “shadow” Cabinet.

    >You may also want to add the Network of Spiritual Progressives, as a far left/Communist controlled religious group which states that it “goes against” those whom adhere to be part of the “Religious Right”. Even when the “Religious Right” folks such as Pat Robertson, and the late Jerry Falwell often hung around folks such as Sun Myung Moon.http://www.spiritualprogressives.org/http://www.tikkun.org/ -Tikkun Magazine, magazine owned by Leftist “Rabbi” Michael Lerner whom is heavily involved in Communist front groups that endorse the PLO’s genocidal goals.

    >You may wish to add the personal site of Gilad Atzmon to the Western Leftist propaganda category, as he seems to be Israel’s version of Philip Agee, the late CIA operative turned KGB/Cuban DGI disinformationist stooge.Atzmon, in many ways like Agee, purposely spreads disinformation about Israel. From stating that Israel is a “military state” under the “control” of religious extremists and ignoring the genocidal PLO-Hamas goals, to stating in a Chomskyian fashion of how Israel is on the “lines” of National Socialist Germany even though Israeli Arabs/Palestinians get the right to vote and have freedom of speech while they would not under the PLO or Hamas or neighboring Arab nations:http://www.gilad.co.uk/Aside from that Atzmon is also quite popular among Western Communist/far left circles. Such as the British Socialist Workers’ Party with close ties with the British Communist Party. Along with also Atzmon himself justifying the burning of a Jewish synagogue at the hands of Leftist/neo-Nazis who “favor” the Palestinian people.
