Mladić deserves a fair trial, but he will not get it…

I’ve been in Srebrenica and also in a morgue with several hundred unidentified bodies and also in Crni vrh – Zvornik the largest mass grave from a genocide in BiH. I wish Ratko Mladić a fair trail, because fairness is what he deserves, although it can not be delivered in Haag or any other trial and also not in a/one lifetime, but he will get what he deserves! Above are images from Crni Vrh, Potočari, Sarajevo, Bijeli potok, Srebrenica. The sign on a billboard, written in Cyrillic is taken in Serbian part of BiH and my best translation would be “It is difficult to god, the way we are!”.

Here is a story I’ve done after the arrest of Karadžić.
PS: I remember clearly a Milošević’s speach and shouting of masses “We want weapons…” that day everybody knew that snowball is rolling and it can not be stopped. Strangely enough I can’t find the clip on youtube, only Milošević’s reaction “Ne čujem dobro, ne čujem dobro to šta tražite”

  4. Borut, Srebrenica is only one side of medal. We all know that every medal has two sides.

  5. Nothing can erase what happened and justice will be very hard to be served whatever happens. This is more about closing a chapter and openning a new one.

  6. You are right Igor, Srebrenica was “just” the “grand” finale of the war. I’m happy that Haag caught the most important players and put them on trial, including Gotovina and too bad that Tuđman and Milošević died before they were faced with facts. Still can’t believe that in Slovenia we had (still have them:-( the same kind of idiots like Tuđman and Milošević were, but with some strange game of life passed their plans of “great Slovenia to Tokio”.

    Nevertheless we Slovenians are still divided between a truth of collaborates and a truth of partisans, even 50 years after and I can not imagine what would be if we were as complicated country as BiH is.
