Watch a video about the breakup of Yugoslavia

In the wake of Milosevic's death and the temporary blip in interest in Serbia again, you may want to visit (or re-visit) this documentary (in two parts). Even if you are not particularly interested in the Balkans and care more about Iraq, this movie has important lessons about the dirty international politics, the way US government (and other governments) operates, and the way press is manipulated and in turn becomes a manipulator.

A documentary which traces how crucial mistakes made by the West helped lead to the unnecessary breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991, culminating in the devastating NATO bombing campaign in 1999.
