Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems that Tadic is forming a coalition with the Socialist Party - of which Slobodan Milosevic was boss. And the "international community" is applauding.

Assuming that ideology plays a part in party formation, then we have here the portrayal of repressive, nationalistic, genocidal forces in the form of the Socialist party, now deemed pro-European and democratic, whereas the party that entered into power after the Fall of Milosevic, the party of Kostunica, once deemed pro-Western, pro civil rights and democratic, has now become the nationalist, regressive, party, and the stench of genocide has been laid at their feet as well.

George Orwell would have a field day with the turnabout.

It's only been 6 or 7 years for these reversals, unprecedented.
