#4 The UN has a "Detention Center"?
The way they rail about Gitmo you'd think that there was no such lawful thing as any "Detention Center?.

Ah, I get it now, they want to run all phases of any type of incarceration "Center" for when they themselves "Visit" for the next 20 or so.

#5 From another article:

The European Union (EU) said Saturday that the death of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic in The Hague is a sad moment, but does not change the need for the region to come to terms with the past.

Austrian Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency, told reporters here that she had been informed of the news on the death of Milosevic.

Plassnik said the passing away of any human being is itself a sad moment and that the death of Milosevic "does not alter in any way the need for the region to come to terms with the legacy of the past, of which Slobodan Milosevic has been a part."

No doubt Plassnik would have found a good word for Hitler; but then he was an Austrian, too.

#11 My wife's first thought was: "Damn, he cheated the hangman!" Then she remembered it was a UN trial. At least he died in jail.

#12 He would have died of old age before the UN completed the 'trial' anyway.

Good Riddance....

#13 The worst thing about Slobo is that he discredited anti-jihadism. As it stands, the worst ethnic cleansers in Europe - Kosovo and Bosnia - do so under the protective wing of NATO. If the Serbs had articulated their concerns of Muslim extremism, and used civil means - where possible - of social pacification, they could have led Europe in counter-terrorism. Like President Nixon, Milosevic gave a "sword" to the wrong people, and they cut his political throat.

#14 He should have just plead guilty. If you take the usual maximum Euro-sentence of < 10 years, subtract time served and time off for good behavior, he would have been home five years ago.
