Mladic, Caught

Sixteen years after the culmination of the Balkan War, the Bastard of Belgrade has been caught.

By ‘caught,’ one must understand the verb in its loosest form: he was escorted from his high-rise flat in the center of the nation’s capital after (allegedly, ahem) being looked after by Serbian security forces in the interim.

The same forces of the same country that for 16 years denied knowledge of his whereabouts.

He even attended football matches.

Ratko Mladic orchestrated the slaughter of over 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995.

There is no corner of hell too hot, no punishment too great for his crimes.

There are no words for joy, only a sadness that such a man can continue without the prickling of guilt.

He is no man, but a soulless beast.

    Hmmm, just wondering why isn’t anybody talking about the war criminals from the other warring parties? Do you all honestly think the Serbs were the only wrongdoers?

    That would be ridiculous, but it is not a basis to shy away from the crime committed by slaughtering 8,000 men and boys.

    There were crimes committed on all sides, but Mladic went that extra mile.

      I never said he shouldn’t have been arrested. By all means, arrest him and put him to trial.
      I just said that there shouldn’t be a double standard

    So, a man is arrested merely for helping to defend his country against foreign aggressors because the current regime in Serbia wants to join the EU.
