On March 27, 2006, Taylor wrote again about the Medak Pocket slaughter in Croatia:
“[...] Over 200 Serbian inhabitants of the Medak Pocket were slaughtered in a grotesque manner (the bodies of female rape victims were found after being burned alive). Our traumatized troops who buried the grisly remains were encouraged to collect evidence and were assured that the perpetrators would be brought to justice.
“Nevertheless in 1995, Ceku, by then trained by U.S. instructors as a general of artillery, was still at large. In fact, he was the officer responsible for shelling the Serbian refugee columns and for targeting the UN-declared “safe” city of Knin during the Croatian offensive known as Operation Storm. Some 500 innocent civilians perished in those merciless barrages, and senior Canadian officers who witnessed the slaughter demanded that Ceku be indicted. Once again, their pleas fell of deaf ears.”
Operation Storm: Croats Slaughtered Even the Animals That Belonged to Serbs
According to the CBC, Canadian officers documented numerous Croat atrocities during Operation Storm and find it entirely baffling that not one person of those who committed vicious war crimes has been arrested and brought before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
“Just amazing. You can see the holes in the back of the head,” said Capt. Gerry Carron, showing pictures he took to document the killings.Professor Chossudovsky wrote about the Canadian peacekeepers of the Second Battalion of the Royal 22nd Regiment who witnessed the atrocities committed by Croatian troops in the Krajina offensive during Operation Storm, citing a Canadian officer who testified:
“We found people in wells,” he said. “There was an old lady we found head-first in a well. Why did they do that?”
“Any Serbs who had failed to evacuate their property were systematically cleansed by roving death squads. Every abandoned animal was slaughtered and any Serb household was ransacked and torched.”
General Jean Cot offered a similar, bloodcurdling account: “I have found no sign of human or animal life in the several villages we passed today. The destruction is total, systematic and deliberate.”
