Tell the truth

This is a one-sided story. Where the Serbian victims over whom he made the exodus. Why not show them when you had the chance to shoot Kosovo?

It did happen

Radule , I think the story does in fact tell the truth in that it documents a community in the aftermath of an atrocity. I think Erik?s work in unbiased in highlighting the long lasting effects of war and the fact that in times of conflict crimes against humanity are perpetrated against communities and ethnic groups. We cannot deny or hide the fact that these crimes happen. Why they happen is another story. The point of this story for me is that it has happened. It seeks not to take sides as to reasons why it occurred. There?s no doubt that some Kosovar Albanians in the past century sided with Nazi occupation forces and Kosovar Serbs were victims to a number of atrocities themselves. That is all part of history and Erik?s story is part of a recent history too.

Two sides of story

You have right
I do not want to say that the crime did not happen, but I'm sick of it to show only the suffering of the Albanian side mainly. Serbians were also killed and tortured of KLA. That was civil who was prepared two decades and huge number of Kosovo Albanians was armed with infantry weapons. Most of Albanian civilians, from their homes, was shooting on Serbina civilians, because Sebian regular army and police must atack. That is Albanian military civilian army or Kosovo separatists. Many Serbs were expelled from Kosovo or killed brutally. Albanians who wasn't want going in war killed by KLA.
KLA was trafficking with human organs and killd many Serbian and Albanian civils for that reson. That was happend i village Ripa in famous Yellow House. Carla del Ponte firs give a facts of that case.
Serbian civilians in Kosovo are still tortured.
I think if we want be good jurnalist we must shoting bouth side of story. Especially when such sensitive tem like KOsovo war. Erik has made good story and greath shots but that is only one side of very sad story.
