Events in the former Yugoslav republics broke some ostensibly leftist brains


Nah, the RCP was already well on its way from fringe Trotskyist cult to become a Libertarian (as in American don't tread on me, and education is a government plot libertarian) cult by the time Yugoslavia broke up. In the 80s they were rubbishing the idea that heterosexuals could contract AIDs and have been anti condom well into the 90s. I've also read articles in their paper that supported whaling, fox hunting and downplayed domestic abuse rates, as well as their infamous articles accusing ITN of making up the very real allegations of murder and sexual assault at Serb controlled concentration camps.

They're also still around, they just ditched the socialist buzz words and have built a small media empire in the UK with Sp!ked Online being their biggest hit today.

And I assume that if NATO hadn't gotten involved, the genocide would just have magically stopped on its own?

International monitors were withdrawn in preparation for NATO's bombardment, and the Serbian forces immediately responded by shifting from brutal but targeted counterinsurgency to wholesale ethnic cleansing.

"As soon as international monitors were withdrawn they went from brutal counterinsurgency to wholesale ethnic cleansing" isn't the evidence of NATO malfeasance you think it is. Rather the opposite, in fact.

Why did NATO force Serbia to ethnically cleanse those poor Albanians?

The best argument you can take is that it was irresponsible for NATO people on ground to leave, but that wouldn't have stopped the active guerilla warfare going on targeting people unless you commit enough forces to effectively occupy the country which I'm sure people would also bring up as a horrible illegal action.

My point, as I'm sure you are aware, is not that the bombing and withdrawal of monitors "forced" them to engage in ethnic cleansing, it gave them the opportunity and cover to do so. But if you'd like to continue pretending to be a moron, don't let me stop you.

In 1992 the RCP was in the process of fleshing out their midnight of the century thesis but they hadn't completely broken with leftoid politics. The extent to which they had become capitalist is exaggerated, even at the point where they chose to disband. I've got their final theoretical journal and it's actually actively pessimistic about capitalism!

I think this is the account Cigouave was talking about. His tweets are being swarmed by pro-assad tankies just from a glance. He also works for bidens campaign, so that adds to the pressure on him. I really do mean it when I say hes swarmed by assad tankies.
