Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't think you'll find many people here who'll disagree with you if you say that Serbia got an unnecessarily rough ride over the last two decades. Heck, you would probably even get agreement if you argued that Serbia was just one more in a series of small countries that the US has thrown against the wall and beaten up to prove its manliness to itself and the rest of the world. And that the diplomatic and political blacklisting of Serbia by the Union is a historical injustice.

I'll even argue that what happened viz Milosevic looked a lot like a kangaroo kourt - if for no other reason then because it took as long as it did. I take a rather dim view of the practise of imprisoning someone for years on end without that person actually being convicted of any crime yet.

But FFS, making Karadzic your poster child for the injustices committed against Serbia is like making the outing of Valerie Plame the poster child of investigative reporting. There are serious indications that the man committed war crimes. That means that he should be apprehended and brought to trial. Full stop. End of story.
