Nothing further some source from Europe...

Slobodan Milosevic Found Dead in His Cell

Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslav leader who orchestrated the Balkan wars of the 1990s and was on trial for war crimes, was found dead in his prison cell at the U.N. detention center near The Hague, the U.N. tribunal said Saturday. He was 65.

Fox News said he appeared to have died from natural causes. One reporter mentioned Milosevic had a history of heart problems.

Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic led his country on a course of conflict and violent disintegration.

During his 13 years of power, the people of Yugoslavia saw their country torn apart, and hundreds of thousands of people die. All that is left now of the former Yugoslavia, which used to consist of six republics, is Serbia and its reluctant junior partner, Montenegro.


Slobodan Milosevic rode out massive waves of protests against his government during the winter of 1996 to 1997.


From the archive


Kate Adie reports on opposition protests (05.12.96) real 56k

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Belgrade and other towns, contesting the authorities' attempts to manipulate the results of municipal elections. Many were brutally beaten by the Serbian police.

After three months of protests, Milosevic finally caved in, returning the so-called "stolen elections" to the opposition.

But not long afterwards, the coalition movement, Zajedno, or "Together", broke up amid reciprocal accusations of betrayal and collaboration with Milosevic.

In July 1997 Milosevic was elected as Yugoslav President by the federal parliament, which was controlled by his supporters.

But.., but what about the Hague's trial verdict? God got tired of waiting for it, too. Good riddance.

I believe so. Sure saved the Euros plenty of embarrassment as this quagmire of trials seemed to drag on forever.

All I know is they said they just heard from some Euopean radio station, they are trying to confirm it was sketchy at best.

He died in a UN detention center. Did the UN treat him all right. Did they force feed him. Did they feed him enough. Were his rights considered. Did he get routine lawyer visits.

If he got sick and the UN didn't tend to his needs sufficiently, can we call that torture, since the definition of torture has been defined downward?

Questions, questions??

That is what they said. I heard it. They spent a little time talking about how he was in the middle of his defense and was on trial for war crimes.

Now whether the Fox people misread a wire report, I don't know. But they sure did say that Milosevic had died.

If what you say is true, it wouldn't be the first time the media "married" two related stories.

If true, Clinton will be relieved, now he won't be required to testify.

Most importantly, was he ever forced to wear panties on his head?

It may be torture but I don't know. The new UN definition of torture has it as any slight inconvenience placed on a person as long at it's the US doing it.

And Amnesty International. I select the fat guy from USA/Amnesty who called GITMO a gulag to check on the dietary considerations.

It is now official---more detainees have died at UN detention centers than at GITMO.

I'm surprised it took an Aussie to drop a hint obvious enough for someone to connect the dots...LOL!

And I am still not convinced of his guilt. How many years is it they have been trying to pin something on him?

Before we condem the man, I suggest we study this:

The UN got sick of the trial and just decided to execute him... but they let their observers rape him first.

Do we know where Kofin Annan was?

Seriously, even the CNN reporter is wondering why he was dead for hours before he was found. Imagine this happened to Saddam under US control.

Chritianne Armopour is so busy defending the UN and making excuses for their sloppiness.
