What Slobo said

I have compiled a page of quotes of Slobodan Milosevic, which show his consistent opposition to nationalism and stringent belief in national equality. The page is available here. I shall hopefully soon also add more to the 'Destruction of Yugoslavia: Myths and Facts' page.

The quotes I have included show that Milosevic fought for national equality and rights for all in Kosovo and was in no way anti-Albanian, that Milosevic was an adament opponent of nationalism and frequently condemned it, and that Milosevic believed in the preservation of Yugoslavia as a community of equals. There are also a few quotes relating to Bosnia and the beginning of the civil war there.

I have highlighted in bold several things that Milosevic said that have been taken out of context, misrepresented, and quoted as words of nationalism, extremism, war-mongering, etc. By reading them within their context one can see that he was in fact arguing for the complete opposite.
