Far Right and Far Center Historical Negationism

The first commander of UN peacekeeping forces in Sarajevo wrote a superb revisionist article in 2005.

This is truly heroic.

One day, the truth must be more wisely accepted that heretofore: the Balkans war was a very vicious, brutal, bloody war where all sides committed atrocities.

That day has yet to come.

Those who claim there was a 'Serbian genocide,' i.e. that the Serbs were 'worse' than the Croats or Albanians (whatever 'worse' is supposed to mean) risk falling into the same error as far right Holocaust denialists; i.e., providing a purely sentimental, moralistic and ideological account of history, which serves the agenda of those who unscrupulously wield their power against the weak.

Far Right historical negationism and Far Center historical negationism: beware of the 'little Irvings' among the centrist establishment.
