Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That is not my hypothesis, and I haven't seen any good evidence to that end.

I frankly don't think that NATO cared all that much about which ethnic group the suspects came from (with Kosovo Albanians as a possible exception, but that's much later in the chronology) - as long as they got a few high-profile ones (Milosevic, Tudjman, Karadic and the rest of the names that were "seen on TV"). Because my point is fundamentally about domestic policy within NATO countries, not about foreign policy. And all these Balkan names sound the same to English speakers anyway, so nobody cares which ones are indicted.
