This article has been mentioned by a media organization:
Here it says 31 March as the start of war, in Lučko Anti-Terrorist Unit it says proclamation of independence and then subsequent war. Proclamation was in June the same year so this doesn't add up: either war broke out after the proclamation or before. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:18, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Biased Article almost on propaganda levelEdit
Why there are no images of Serbian refuges nor there is any image of Serbian graves as comparison to those of Croatian. There was according to your own article more then 4000 killed Serbian civilians (comparing to more then 6000 Croatians) and 300000 displaced people which according to actual numbers is even higher considering percentile of Serbs and those declared as Yugoslavs in Croatia before and after the war. Just if those declared as Serbs are counted it is clearly seen that more then 400,000 Serbs had actually left Croatia. Article is very discriminatory and disrespectful to victims of war of Serbian origin. Except one abandoned house nothing illustrates their suffering. Wikipedia took to spread information, one would guess, not propaganda. Just merely counting pictures presenting Croatian casualties (massive graves, refugees, burned buildings) and pictures of Serbian casualties (only one picture of abandoned house) lives impression of heavily biased approach of writers of this article. Ratio is almost 10:1 if not bigger that in nowrecepy way matches numbers of civilians killed on both sides.
It is as writers have set on mission to create image of war that is to discriminate Serbian victims over Croatian victims, to create perception instead to present the facts. Simply comparing civilian death casualties that is less than 2:1 and imagery and wording that is more then 10:1 creates intense feeling of propaganda motive rather then neutral factual approach. Like reader needs to be convinced into something rather than to be informed of something. Not a one single picture of well documented Serbian refuges from massive ethnic cleansing of Serbs in 1995 that was witnessed directly by US ambassador Peter Galbraith as well as Croatian Helsinki Comity. Here are some examples of poorly illustrated articles on this very Wikipedia and lots of other available material on google. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Storm#/media/File:Serb_refugees_leaving_Croatia.jpg https://www.google.com/search?q=serbs+croatia+1995&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS869US869&sxsrf=ACYBGNTvJfPcx32zFE4LbqY59BCF-yS8hQ:1571675338547&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjIlIby4q3lAhWDpp4KHdB2BXIQ_AUIEigB&biw=1397&bih=647#imgdii=4RGZLeyU_bJoGM:&imgrc=ZGhn9W1vrvLBAM: https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comments/aqpqfz/croatian_soldier_and_serbian_grandma_during_1995/ https://www.google.com/search?q=serbs+croatia+1995&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS869US869&sxsrf=ACYBGNTvJfPcx32zFE4LbqY59BCF-yS8hQ:1571675338547&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjIlIby4q3lAhWDpp4KHdB2BXIQ_AUIEigB&biw=1397&bih=647#imgdii=ZGhn9W1vrvLBAM:&imgrc=ZGhn9W1vrvLBAM: https://www.reddit.com/r/HistoryPorn/comments/2kbv0k/massexodus_of_serbs_from_croatia_1995_800x600/
