Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Have you read the diary I put up a few weeks ago specifically to stimulate this kind of debate on this?

From my impressions calling Srebrenica only a "safe haven" after 1993 is the understatement of the year. It was a geographical cul-de-sac where people's survival was dependent on food droppings, the coinage used was cigarettes and with Serbian forces at the doorstep preventing any migration away from the enclave.

Can you also provide some evidence that, in 2007, 11 years later after your quoted newspaper clip, that body count is still stuck at 1500 bodies?

I agree with you that the Srebrenica massacre was too late a rallying point for the west against Balkan brutalities.

It was not my intent to make people feel guilty of neglecting diaries in the maelstrom that is ET; I'm sorry if I did! I just wanted to have a pointer to it. Upstate NY above is, I think, quoting from his valuable responses to that diary. Link here.
