To those who think that Milosovic could have gotten a fair trial in his home country of Yugoslavia, Witness please what has happened in Chile. A judge has declared the old bastard "unfit to stand trial" due to "dementia". Basically he has had himself declared insane.
Had Molosovic stayed in Yugoslavia, his many cronies would have assured a similar way out. Any more honest judges would have found their families being threatened, etc.
It's a pity they don't do public hangings at the Hague.

What's a pity CFALK is that the stupid EU is after people like Milosovic when there are worse atrocities being commited in other places. Instead they decided to provoke a war with Yugoslavia...look what the albanians are doing to macedonia now. Why should they cause trouble when they aren't from those countries, if they're dissatisfied both you and me know that alotta airlines fly to Tirana and they can easily get on those flights and go back to Tirana. It's as simple as that. The albanians that were in the Kosovo region of Yugoslavia had escaped from Albania because of persecution from the communist government of albania(at that time), the serbs lived with them, they intermarried, they had their own schools/colleges/mosques and yet they weren't happy. I don't know about you but the albanians need to appreciate what the serbs did for them. I'm not justifying what molosivic did, it was wrong, completely wrong! I just think that the albanians need to be blamed as well...

Marco - Slobo's crimes are not only on Kosovo, the war in Croatia and Bosnia can also be attributed to him and all that were stupid enought to listen to him (or whatever the reason was) he is now formally charged onl for Kosovo, but he will also be charged for othere crimes soon CFALK -"SRBI PRODASE VOZDA" - serbs sold their "leader" it is the simple truth, actually they blackmailed international community which was stupid enough to fall on that trick - it is sure no coincidence that he was extradicted one day before donors conference

I agree the timing of the conference put undue pressure, which may now cause the government to fall. If history is an indication, the backlash might cause nationalists to come back into favor in any early elections. Oh Brilliant!
But as far as Milo is concerned, I'm glad he is assured a fair trial. Well, maybe fair isn't the right word. If the same thing happened to him as happened to Ceucescu in Rumania, that would be fair.

Quite frankly I don't think I understand you. Are you saying that we should leave Milosevic alone just because other crimes are commited on this planet?
That guy needs to pay for what he has done, period.

Honestly, I have to agree that it would have to take a miracle for Milosevic to get a fair trial in Serbia. There is still so much corruption in the government...I mean just look at how Milosevic maintained so much power after he was ousted from office. The fact is, Milosevic still has a thin, but resolute band of supporters in high places, and the judges don't have the guts to to trod on their toes.
As far as the circumstances of Milosevic's extradiction...that's just more evidence of the country's corruption.
It is absolutely correct that Slobo bears much of the responsibility for the wars in Croatia and Bosnia, although the specific war crimes indictment only refers to Kosovo. But still, I think its better that Milosevic's actions are being looked at on an international scale.
BTW, its interesting that you make the mention that Pinochet had himself declared insane. I'm sure Milosevic could have managed the same had he been tried in his own country. I mean, he's threatened to commit suicide on a number of occasions, and after his arrest, Milosevic himself pulled out a pistol and threatened to start shooting his captors.
What's a pity is that the stupid EU is after people like Milosovic when there are worse atrocities being commited in other places
More PRESSING circumstances I'll grant. But, otherwise, what you said doesn't make much sense.
You sound as though you are trying to compare Milosevic to someone else? If you're suggesting that there are current-day leaders in other countries (in the Balkans, presumably) who are promoting the same sort of ethnic cleansing that Milosevic did during this tyranny, I would like to hear about it...

What I'm saying is that if milosovic has been taken to the Hague other people who were involved have to be taken as well, including the KLA terrorists. There are other parts of the world where atrocities are being commited and the EU doesn't give a damn, why is it that they're stuck to Yugoslavia? In my opnion the albanians brought everything onto themselves, like I said if they weren't happy in yugoslavia they could've gone back yo albania.
