In reviewing the serious scholarship regarding Yugoslavia, I either found them agreeing with Parenti’s thesis (but not devoting much detail to the issue), or ignoring the issue altogether, as Allcock did in his Explaining Yugoslavia.� Christopher Bennett’s Yugoslavia’s Bloody Collapse laid a great deal of Yugoslavia’s woes at Milosevic’s feet, yet admitted that the Western policy toward Yugoslavia “has been determined in advance, and is based on the domestic political considerations of the great powers, not an analysis of Yugoslav affairs.” [360] � Misha Glenny, who did not see things the way Parenti does, and operates from various Western establishment assumptions (which nearly all mainstream journalists do), and whose work is light on dealing with the economic aspects of what has happened to Yugoslavia, fully admitted that the region’s economic problems are directly related to the Great Powers’ past militarily interventions.� Glenny wrote that the military interventions led to the ethnic conflicts, and that NATO’s military adventure will probably be no different in effect, if not intent, than other Great Power interventions. [361] � Parenti’s focus was not on who the bad guys in the Balkans were, but what the USA's role was and its motivation for intervening.� Every attack that I saw on Parenti’s work, most notably from the right wing, failed to comprehend that distinction.� That same “misunderstanding” has been directed toward Noam Chomsky’s work countless times .� How much do they truly misunderstand that distinction, and how much of their criticism is a knowing misrepresentation of Parenti’s work, which is also the straw man logical fallacy?� History is on Parenti’s side.
