With a fragile peace in place, most Americans would undoubtedly like to forget the eight years of war, atrocities and suffering that have been visited upon the Balkans. But the man most responsible for this modern tragedy, Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic, remain in power, unchastened by the West and emboldened by his own survival. In "The Looting of Yugoslavia," U.S. News & World Report reveals how Milosevic has secretly turned his sights on his own country, raiding its banks and businesses to sustain his despotic rule and enrich his family and courtiers. The story details how more than a dozen of Milosevic's top ministers not only run the government, but also control the nation's largest, state-owned companies, funneling money form these businesses into their own private firms and their own pockets.
