Serbia Children

The irony of sadness; it just doesn't seem to let up. Once again the American media is in a feeding frenzy of self righteousness about the decrepit conditions for retarded children in Serbia. Yes, indeed it is dismal. But, of course, it pales in comparison to what America has done to the children of Irak. And then there is this:
Serbia's mistreatment of the mentally ill was exposed after autocratic President Slobodan Milosevic was overthrown in a popular revolt in 2000. During Milosevic's 11-year rule, health care standards plummeted as government funding was diverted to paying for the wars in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo.
Let us be very blunt about this, when you pay for wars, health care suffers.

Whether in Serbia, Irak, or America.
