Comments: Toward A Brighter Future

Point is that Bush et al are going to be hypocrites about handing themselves over for their war crimes? No doubt.

Of course, even Yugoslavia was hypocritical. Ethnic cleansing in the Krajina region was ignored in the West. Neo-Nazi units from Germany fighting against the Serbs were ignored. The whole purpose of breaking up Yugoslavia by the West (pretty much along the lines that Nazi Germany did in WWII) was ignored.

Just saying.

AMERICA'S great hope is that Europe and the Hague will do OUR dirty laundry for US. (Me--I'll just call Nan @1-202-225-0100 in the hope WE DO OUR OWN DIRTY WORK)

One thing is missing from this story. Premier Zoran Djindjic, who was the one instrumental for the extradition of Milosevic to Hague was assassinated only two years later, in March 2003.
@Bob in Pacifica: Yes, there was a lot of hypocrisy in the death of Yugoslavia, but it was the Serbs and Croats who were instrumental in bringing this about. There is no redeeming either nation for choosing leaders bent on destruction. Particularly Serbs, who are still in love with Milosevic, and still in denial about war crimes and civilian victims. There has never been open admission of what had happen in Srebrnica, for example. That is a Serbian version of holocaust denial.

unfortunately, you forget that this is America, and that Bush and Cheney et al will never, EVER face justice.

not one person who is responsible for all the killing, murder, spying, stealing and destroying will be held accountable.

get ready to be disappointed America.
