More than half of Americans have never heard or read about the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. This is evidenced by the results of a survey conducted by a French research company on request "Sputnik. Opinions".


More than half of Americans have never heard of the bombing of Yugoslavia


IFop, the oldest research company in France, conducted a study on the actions of the NATO coalition led by the United States in Yugoslavia. As part of the survey, residents of the United States were asked only one question: did they read or hear about the aerial bombardment of the European country of Yugoslavia during the 80 days in the 1999 year. As it turned out, more than half of the Americans, and this is 54%, have never heard and do not know at all about the actions of the NATO coalition in this Balkan war. Of the remaining respondents, only 26% gave a positive answer, while 20% generally found it difficult to answer without saying "yes" or "no."

As stated in the explanation for the study, the survey was conducted in the United States from 2 to 15 on October at the request of Sputnik. A total of 1001 people over the age of 18 were interviewed.

Recall that the NATO coalition led by the United States from March 24 to June 10 on June 1999 bombed the territory of Yugoslavia, delivering attacks, according to a statement by Washington, against the country's "military installations". In fact, almost 25 of thousands of civil buildings, almost 100 schools, 40 hospitals and other infrastructure were destroyed during the bombing. In Serbia, the bombing of Yugoslavia was called genocide.

In September this year, former US ambassador to Serbia Kyle Scott called on the Serbs to look at NATO’s bombing of Yugoslavia “from a broader perspective” in order to maintain “good relations with the United States.”

          But they are sure that the United States almost single-handedly won the Second World War, and also that they have nothing to do with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Or at least pretend that everything was so in reality.

            in the USA there was a poll:
            Q: How do you feel about Homo sapiens?
            99% answered "no how"
            90% of Americans will not find Africa on the map
            80% of Americans are sure that there are only 5 countries in the World (USA, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and Australia)
            70% believe New Zealand is a mountain in Montana

            Most people in the United States have not even heard of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
            I will say more, and more than half of the wars unleashed by the Anglo-Saxons, ordinary people in the United States have not heard and do not know.
            They are presented to the elites so that the United States looks like the last bastion of good, justice and freedom. And rarely does anyone think about how sideways we say Iraq or Yugoslavia to the US national security.

            Somehow it turns out. I learned this when I studied in absentia at the KTI in my first year in absentia, passed the history of the CPSU, and the KIN says to me "from the girl cannot answer the question about the NEP, help" and I answered him everything as it should be about the "bond" of workers and peasants ... He told me "Well done", but me as our bay suffered, I told him about this "bow" and blurted out that this is a piece of an anchor chain 25 meters of which make up an anchor chain, and there are no other bows, and further, what was a peasant in that time, because my grandfathers are all peasants, and about speculative socialism, etc. He listened and said "Well, maybe you're right, but history and the party are inseparable, and your party doesn't need such a truth." And I told him, “Comrade Salin said differently,” and quoted. ”The outcome is clear“ You can no longer come, you won't hand over the history of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. ”I passed it, but only in Riga. So now, what kind of history is required by the ruling elite, study that, not the history that was in fact.

      And who is it that turned out to be a minus A, it seems like a quite reasonable remark, especially against the background of the fact that already about 15 years ago not all schoolchildren could unequivocally answer the question with whom we fought in WWII, only with Napoleon, roofing felts with hitler, roofing felts simultaneously with both of them, or they arranged graters among themselves - and this is not at all a joke or an exaggeration! ...

      I won’t say anything about Yugoslavia, but recently we were sitting at work, smoking, talking, and the name of Zoe Kosmodemyanskaya flashed into the conversation. And two young electricians just did not understand who we were talking about. They didn’t understand at all. I had to tell. And, for a minute, both have 11 classes plus a technical school. Oh yes, he's called college now. Here is such a sad story.

Maybe earlier we recall the same Anglo-Saxons of American origin who bombarded Petropavlovsk and received a face, the British tried to take Arkhangelsk in June, and on July 6, 1854 tried to seize the Solovetsky Monastery. And even earlier, under Boris Godunov, there was an attempt to capture Arkhangelsk. So as they say "No one is forgotten, and nothing is forgotten." And we also remember the "love" of the Anglo-Saxons.

          You want to say that comic book lovers are modern intellectuals compared to screen kids?

          That those that others are "Zero, Zero".

    And the second half most likely believes that the bombing was justified?

    They all know very well, they begin to play again in public, they make themselves heroes that they are saints, and who then clapped their hands and supported the pilots who attacked and shouted everything, we bring democracy to them.

    As it turned out, more than half of Americans, and this is 54%, have never heard and do not know about the actions of the NATO coalition in this Balkan war. Of the remaining respondents, only 26% gave a positive answer, and 20% found it difficult to answer at all, without saying either "yes" or "no".
    And the same percentage of Americans do not know that Russia is an enemy.

      I’ll surprise you a little more now. Most Americans do not even know that there was such a country - Yugoslavia.

    No wonder. They brazenly rewrite history for themselves, brazenly using the media, and with the advent of the Internet, this has become much easier. But they are constantly hysterical about the Soviet-Russian "propaganda". Yes, and in our country, 20 percent of the current generation, prefer the "Western truth." They are diligently rubbing it in some of our "universities".

    More than half of the population thinks that the USSR dropped the atomic bomb on Japan, so why be surprised.

      The most paradoxical thing is that the Japanese themselves already begin to believe in it. request

    In September this year, former US Ambassador to Serbia Kyle Scott called on the Serbs look at the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia "from a broader perspective" in order to maintain "good relations with the United States"

    Summoned the Serbs to what? Like the Bearded Man - "Understand and Forgive"? Completely beguiled the coast ...

    List the Slavs in NATO? Or do you figure it out yourself?

    listed and do not be clever. then add them all together by population, and then count the Slavs who are not part of the NATA block and add Ukraine to it, which the West abused ... but in general, remove the saucepan from your head ...

    The survey was conducted in the United States from October 2 to 15 by order of Sputnik.

    This is the reason for this survey result.

    "More than half of Americans have never heard of the bombing of Yugoslavia"
    - A little more time will pass, and the barbaric bombing of Yugoslavia in America will begin to be attributed to Russia. With them it will become.

    Comrades! So many controversies ... Let's just calculate. Now America has a 330 million population. Polled 0.00003% and based on this report "more than half of Americans." And it is worth inserting after the "half" the word of the respondents and everything will fall into place. Moreover, it depends on where and who was interviewed. Maybe some farmers who are not up to TV and news. Or negritos with Latinos, who are white to the light.

    Those Americans who are not aware of the bombing by the Americans of Yugoslavia, believe that the American aviation scattered gifts instead of bombs and missiles?
