Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars. To maintain US dollar is to maintain US world hegemony. Since #WWII, #USA has used ...
Since March 2022, #FederalReserve has raised interest rates 6X. On 2 Nov, its 75-point rate hike and sharp #USdollar appreciation caused global #currency depreciation, capital outflows, rising debt servicing costs, hiked imported inflation and currency/debt crises of countries.
How this #KhazarianMafia #SCAM all started: At the latter part of #WWII, #USA took the opportunity to hoard tons of #gold and led the establishment of Bretton Woods system based on a peg between #USdollar and gold, thus establishing US dollar as "global hard #currency".

On the 2nd of May in 1992, JNA (Yugoslav People’s Army) from #Serbia supported by local #Serbian militants tried to deal the final blow to the #Bosnian defenders, occupy #Sarajevo and force legal government to surrender.

It was a beautiful sunny day...

2 MAY 1992
That morning was calm & peaceful, just the day before people were having May the 1st, Labor Day, celebrations. Nobody was expecting to witness the start of the Siege, that would last almost next four years, 1,425 days

It started in the afternoon of 2 May 1992.

2 MAY 1992
Serb forces established a total blockade of the city. They blocked the major access roads, cutting supplies of food and medicine. The Sarajevo public transportation network was hit at its main locations and throughout the city.

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭
57 are detailed in the link provided.👇… Image
2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage

NERMIN DIVOVIĆ was killed on 18 November 1994. He was murdered by the #Serbian sniper when he was returning home with his mother Dženana & sister Dženita. His mother was shot in the stomach, bullet went through and hit Nermin in the head.

Nermin was 7 years old.

#NerminDivovic Image
He is lying in the Sniper Alley street, the UN fire­fighters who tried to help him are standing nearby, and in the version of the photograph that circulated most widely, the UN firefighters are shown in action, seemingly trying to block the area around Nermin.

Photo©️Enric Martí Image
Martí took a series of photographs after Nermin's killing in addition to one above, he took one at Nermin's funeral on November 21, 1994-an image that foregrounds Nermin's father, Paso Divovic, covering his face, crouched next to Nermin's freshly dug grave. Image

THREAD #PopeFrancis gives rare interview to #Serbia semi-official daily @PolitikaOnline. But as "Francisko", a name that in Serbian evokes sombreroed Mexican bandits rather than @Pontifex. Who is responsible for this #Vatican PR disaster? None other than Papal Nuntius to Serbia/2

#Serbian government, the proxy of US imperialism - EU Cartel chapter, agrees on the aggression against brotherly nation of #Belarus!

Total #collaborators and flunkies.

Some morons thought that opposition is ONLY one pro-NATO, wake up, it's a sham.…
Endless alibi of rulers to play upon the feeling of masses, that they are somehow against NATO and Imperialism (introduce clown opposition playing evil NATO ambition role) falls into drain.

One thing remaining, is to publically lawfully accept the occupation of Kosovo.
Any scum who applauds EU cartel and NATO aggression, especially upon our brothers who aided us as much as they could during NATO aggression '99 needs reckoning!

Ready for a travel-Thread from yesterday? On my #trainWeddingtrip another #nighttrain was needed: №1335 "Hellas" from #Belgrade🇷🇸 to #Gevgelija🇲🇰 (+ #Thessaloniki🇬🇷 by bus). It's a train w/ a long history but it's today's existence is only a poor copy of former glory!
1st difficulty: One has to get to #Belgrade🇷🇸 Topčider train station by tram. Sadly no trains leave the beautiful main train station anymore. Tram-infos are rather hard to find, but buying tickets is easy, just hold your 💳 to one of these ticket-cancellers 👍! #trainWeddingtrip
There is not much around #Belgrade🇷🇸 Topčider, mainly a big park. From there, 4 international trains are leaving & arriving the city (2x #Bar🇲🇪, 1x #Sofia🇧🇬 & 1x #Gevgelija🇲🇰). Next to this building there is a ticket-office AND a GREAT😍 railway station pub🍺🍔! #trainWeddingtrip
