Are we talking about the former Yugoslav leader?
Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead...
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.

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.
A witness testifying against Milosevic died yesterday, March 10. Are you sure that they said Milosevic?
Apparently it is/was the former leader. nothing on wires yet....
LOUDER!! I'm hard of hearing!!
Yep, about nine of us heard the same FOX Alert and posted nine threads in about 20 seconds of each other...LOL!
Mods pared it down to this thread...Excellent Work FReepers!
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?
Jane, you ignorant slut...
Hope Saddam's trial ends as well, but MUCH sooner!
Now whether the Fox people misread a wire report, I don't know. But they sure did say that Milosevic had died.
