Yossef Bodansky: Some Call It Peace

Some Call It Peace

Waiting For War In the Balkans


Yossef BODANSKY

Director of the U.S. Congress' Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional warfare

An Overwhelming Deluge of Facts Behind the Ongoing Tragedy of the Balkans

Vital New Facts You Must Know About US Policy

"Once Again, Yossef Bodansky's exhaustive research reveals the facts behind the Balkan conflict, and how the White House forced the unworkable Dayton-Plans accords which have led us to the brink of a much more horrific war."

"Some Call It Peace follows the enormous success of Offensive in the Balkans, and shows how the Clinton White House is helping to fuel a new anti-Western jihad in the heart of Europe ..."

"Offensive in the Balkans was proven correct in every detail. Some Call It Peace has more facts on the mujahedin presence in Bosnia, the great Balkans arms race, the intelligence services' key role, the terrorist training, the vast deceptions and disinformation, the future ofl-FOR and the scope of the coming war."
