Independent Military News Website (covering Serbia/SE Europe)


Serbian citizens, as well as the citizens of other Balkan countries, are deprived of independent and professional news about most topics concerning defense, armed forces, regional and world power balance and even geopolitics. Reasons lie in the traditional approach of all media outlets to write only good news about the army and to exaggerate military strength. In Serbia this is also used to boost government position, avoiding any healthy discussion about the armed forces. This is promoting the false assumption that army is ready and can win regional conflicts, while painting the picture of also unrealistically good position of Serbia concerning commitment of its possible allies. An independent military news website could do much to help promote the real needs of the army and its personnel, help educate readers in contemporary military issues and help them make more informed decisions.
