Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All parties of former Yugoslavia have blood on their hands - Croatians, Bosnians, Serbs and KLA/UKC in Kosovo. No one can put blaim on Dutch peacekeepers who had no heavy armor, just a few troops, no food and supplies and left abandoned by the UN political leadership Akashi and military leadership under UNPROFOR French General Janvier.

The Guardian - "There are only two parties who could and should apologise in Srebrenica - the Serbs and the Dutch," said Tomislav Jakic, foreign policy aide to President Stipe Mesic of Croatia. Dutch peacekeepers stationed in Srebrenica in 1995 have been criticised for abandoning the Muslim enclave to the invading forces of the Bosnian Serb commander, General Ratko Mladic.

When you have trust in the UN International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, the arrest warrants for General Ratko Mladic and political leader Radovan Karadzic should have been effected by NATO forces in the last 10 years!

UN ICT - President Meron will once again call for the arrest and transfer of Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic. As stated at the UN Security Council earlier this month, the Tribunal will not have fulfilled its historic mission - and it will not close its doors - until Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic have been brought to The Hague and tried before the Tribunal in accordance with the full procedural protections recognized by the ICT jurisprudence.

I will do a follow-up with a Dutch input on Srebrenica.

USA WELCOME: Make Yourself Known @BooMan Tribune and add some cheers!
