— The Erimtan Angle —

About a year ago I posted an entry talking about the war in Bosnia. . . and now,[1]  finally at long last, another butcher is having his day in court, as reported by the Associated Press from The Hague: ‘Twenty years after his troops began brutally ethnically cleansing Bosnian towns and villages of non-Serbs, Gen. Ratko Mladic went on trial Wednesday [, 16 May 2012] at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal accused of 11 counts of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The ailing 70-year-old Mladic’s appearance at the U.N. court war crimes tribunal marked the end of a long wait for justice to survivors of the 1992-95 war that left some 100,000 people dead. The trial is also a landmark for the U.N. court and international justice — Mladic is the last suspect from the Bosnian war to go on trial here. In Bosnia, leaders and victims hailed a historic day in the country’s recovery from its war wounds, while some Serbs lamented Mladic’s trial’. [2]

And given that some people are more equal than others, here is the always contrary but nevertheless very Russian RT allowing Mladić, Junior to spew forth his inanities: ‘Former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic is facing trial at the International Hague Tribunal. He’s charged with genocide during theYugoslaviawar in the 1990s. Among his alleged crimes are the massacre in the town ofSrebrenica, where 8,000 Muslims were slaughtered, and the deaths of over 10,000 civilians during the siege of Sarayevo. 69-year old Mladic was arrested by Serb forces nearBelgradelast year. His defense lawyers earlier asked for the trial to be postponed, saying the prosecution had failed to provide evidence on time. They also accused the judge of bias. Their request was denied. Mladic is still viewed as a national hero by some Serbs. In an interview to RT, his son Darko Mladic told RT why (16 May 2012)’.

And here is a propaganda clip showing Mladic’s ruthless treatment of Muslims in erstwhile Yugoslavia, meaning the Serbo-Croat inhabitants of Bosnia whose ancestors converted to Islam during the Ottoman period.
