Denying what happened at Srebrenica is now only an option for the ignorant or the willfully deceptive.
Take your pick.
Serbs did not catch thousands, but only hundreds, and they were put in prisons and hospitals, which visited by the Red Cross withing the following weeks and months and eventually released.
It's pretty simple really. PROBLEM NUMBER ONE
They claim the 6,000 or so gave up in the first day or so of there attempt to make it to Tuzla in the column. They were trapped behind the Konjevic Polje to Nova Kasaba road and after some pretty one sided ambushes and accurate shelling gave themselves up in the 1,000's. Now here's the problem.
It was only the SECOND half of the column that was trapped behind the Konjevic Polje to Nova Kasaba road . The FIRST half of the column had already made it accross the Konjevic Polje to Nova Kasaba road before the VRS had had time to seal it
Now the SECOND half of the column was made up entirely of CIVILIANS from Srebrenica - with the exception of remnants of the 282nd Brigade. The 28th was in the lead and they didn't get caught behind the road. So, according to the ICTY and the Dutch report - i.e. the official line on Srebrenica - it was only civilians who gave themselves up to the VRS.
So care to explain this little fact.
The ABiH admit to losing 40% casualties in the attempt to get to Tuzla so how did they get these casualties?
Also bear in mind that the soldiers of the 28th division had intention of surrendering. None at all. There are literally 100's of statements from them saying they'd rather die than surrender. Indeed their kamikaze attacks on dug in VRS armor bear that out.
