According to official Serbian sources, during the Croat operation "torm" or "lightning", more tha 200 thousand of Serbian civilians, women and children have been ethnically cleansed from Krajinas,which were autonomous Serban territories according to Berlin congress agreement in 1878.Therefore it is not a question "displacing" the population but of ethnic cleansing. Furthermore, some 4000 thousands of civilians were massacred during the very same ethnic cleansing operations, and the French s.s. officer Francois R. knows it very well, but would not admit facts. If Croatia defended its "homeland" against its own population, the Serbs did the same in Kosovo against Albanians, but paradoxically Kosovo was given the independence. Anyway, all war criminals should be brought to justice and punished without exception.
