ICTY: Facts about Srebrenica

Only one Dutch politician Jan Pronk called it a genocide on July 18, 1995. Colleague ministers used more guarded terms.

Dutchbat left Bosnia and crossed into Serbia to safety. As soon as the battalion was safe, a party was organized to celebrate their freedom. I recall the presence of crown prince Willem Alexander and Christian Democrat Jaap de Hoop Scheffer. Just unbelievable ... could not grasp the drama and Dutch military partying. Shame, shame!

Less well known are the dark flights sending arms into Tuzla, logistics of the US, cargo plane from Turkey, arms funded by Saudi Arabia and another Gulf State. The first Al Qaeda cell was established in Europe, a blue print for regime change in Libya and Syria. Kosovo leader is standing trial at the ICC in The Hague for war crimes, US ally to fight the Serbs.
