Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've never seen anything resembling contrition coming out of Serbia
To be fair, contrition is a luxury of the victor, not the vanquished...

In fact however, the current Serbian government expressed its contrition over the events surrounding Srebrenica and Croatia (in fact IIRC so did Babic - of all people)... I know not of any similar apologies from Croatia for Krajina or indeed the Bosnian Muslims regarding the actions of people such as Oric...

In addition, let's not forget how the NATO failed to expect that units of the terror groupmilitia it supported, the KLA, would proceed to reverse ethnic cleanse ethnic Serbs as well as Gypsies from Kosovo, and how in 2004, they failed to rein in the anti-Serb pogroms (choosing force protection instead). Where is the contrition for that -- from the Kosovo government, and from NATO and its member countries?
