As I said in the order: that's the end of that eternal soap.
And yet another war criminal escapes earthly justice.
Next up: Saddam Hussein!
I'd like to say justice will be served with him going to hell now - but since he comes from the Balkans, it'll probably be a step up for him.
I doubt he is actually dead. Alot of things like this are covered up.
His death could provoke Serbian nationalism and cause further implications to the Kossovo issue. Other than that, good riddance.
Upset, because the greatest war criminal since Hitler has eluded due penance through the pardon of premature natural death.
Upset, because instead of being subject to condemnation and uncompromising punishment for his countless and monstrous atrocities, he achieved martyrdom and ensured that his legacy will continue to burden the peoples of former Yugoslavia and their relations for generations to come.
Slobodan Milosevic was a brutal, cold-hearted murderer who, under the guise of protecting the rights of Serbs and preserving stability and integrity of the phantomic Yugoslavia, set in motion four genocidal wars of expansion with the purpose of subjugating and eradicating all non-Serbian ethnic groups on its territory. He is thus directly responsible for deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and exodus of millions. He masterminded and orchestrated the greatest war crimes seen in Europe since World War II, right under the eyes of the civilized world and with the silent backing - even encouragement - of western powers.
Milosevic was also a tyrant who attained political power through violence and usurpation of authority and retained it by means of ruthless oppression. He persecuted and assassinated his political opponents and dissidents, forcefully shut down independent media and brutally suppressed peaceful demonstrations. Under his regime Serbia's economy was utterly devastated, her society destroyed, her ethical values eroded, her people impoverished and morally ruined and every aspect of her life dominated by a complex network of criminal, military and intelligence cabals. The broken, demoralized, pauperized and marginalized Serbia is Milosevic's grim legacy to his people and the ultimate result of his maniacal and destructive politics.
Milosevic was an inhuman monster, undeserving of pity, compassion or mercy. He destroyed lives of millions of people and utterly devastated Balkans. His shadow looms over my life to this day and until the day I die will I continue to regret the fact that he never properly suffered for his dark deeds. May he rot in Hell.
Milosevic was not the greatest war criminal since Hitler.
But the man was a monster, and he should have hanged for his crimes years ago. Damn the Hauge.
Probably not, but he comes in darn close.
That he does. And I must say, you have every right to claim it: not only have I never even visited the Balkans, but I was too young to remember anything but the tail end of the wars. You, on the other hand....
Well, I can't claim I experienced the worst of the wars either. Not by a long shot. Several weeks of living in a cornered town, followed by a hazardous flight to Zagreb and starting anew there doesn't even compare to the suffering of, for example, people of Vukovar, Sarajevo or Srebrenica, who lived under siege and in constant fear for months, even years, and every day saw their friends and family members get killed. Nonetheless, the events of 1991 and afterwards threw my life and lives of my family into turmoil and I honestly can't even begin to guess where we would now be had they not transpired at all.
Isn't Ratty like 14?
On topic, I don't really see how 'earhtly justice' would have been that much better. Sure that he 'got away' with his crimes, but the dude's dead, what more can you ask? I guess that would be for him to have suffered more. It's like how Hitler shot himself in the bunker - "oh noes, we didn't get to trial and punish him for being a villain!1" The whole thing with death is that it gets you off all your hooks, and everyone should have the right to die (even though Milosevic didn't do it on purpose).
That said, I myself was never up to date with Milosovic when he was in business nor affected by his crimes. I understand of course if those who were feel stronger about it, and would have liked to see him convicted and punished, as I would have.
Nah, more like 21.
Oh, and since the man deserves no reverence, let me just say that literal English translation of his name (Slobodan Milosevic) is - Freeman Gentlefuck.
More laughter at the International Criminal Court-
Can it get any slower or more ridiculas?
Dude, the ICTY isn't the International Criminal Court
Uhm, what to say? Everybody has to die sooner or later.
International Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991, rolls of the tongue, doesn't it?
At least you can't confuse it with anything else.
Pfsht. As if.
Everybody knows he's hanging out with Elvis and the US' secret alien World Government in the Pentagon now.
I'd rather have slow and 'ridiculous' than end up with an embarrassment like the Saddam trial.
Plus, I don't see how Den Haag is responsible for his hart condition.
Well, Ratty pretty much summed up all that had to be said about the issue...
I hope that bastard gets his comeuppance in an afterlife...
