Posted on 03/01/2010 6:17:15 AM PST by IntolerantOfTreason
Radovan Karadzic defended the war fought by Bosnian Serbs as a "just and holy" attempt to stop his country being turned into an Islamic state.
Ending a months-long boycott of his genocide trial in The Hague, the former Bosnian Serb leader used a belligerent opening statement this morning to claim that his forces had no choice but to go to war from 1992-95 to "defend the greatness of a small nation" against a Muslim plan to seize power.
"Their aim was 100 per cent power as it was in the Ottoman Empire," said a heavier-looking Dr Karadzic, outlining his defence from the dock of the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

That wasn’t directed at you. As I said, it was directed at the people who are criticizing him and his actions.
In case you haven’t realized this yet, in case you’re confused...people who want to reply to the thread in general...the thread you posted...reply to you, as the poster. It may or may not be directed at you, however, replying to “1” is a custom here for those who are addressing the thread in general.
For starters you’re misreading ‘Islam’ as ‘Iran’ in the post you’re replying to. Islam is a clear and present danger to the existence of America, and we should take off the kid gloves. No more Muslims within our borders.
So there is no war between Islam and the West? Iran isn’t a militant Islamic country looking for nukes...as we speak? Saudi Arabia doesn’t fund terrorism? Yemen doesn’t harbor them?
Good to know, will all the heads magically reattach themselves or are we going to have to sew them on manually?
I haven’t had any coffee yet. Help me out. Distinguish ‘anyone’ from ‘their’.
Reading this again, I just have to LOL again.
Using your logic, we shouldn’t have bombed Dresden or really any German city/occupied territory, because would we be trying to kill Hitler or the members of the Valkyrie plot/thousands of partisans...(insert hand wring here).
If only we had had you, to distinguish the “good” Germans and the “good” Japs from the bad ones. Think of all the bombs we could have saved.
“He definitely links ‘Islam’ to all the Islamic countries to include Iran and he wrote the post I replied to.”
Can you believe I link Islam to all the Islamic countries? What possible connection could they share? No wonder you got your dander up. This is a brilliant point.
“Not all majority Islamic nations have Sharia law. Iraq is shaping into a democracy. Something I believe a lot of just people in these countries want.”
Let me tell you something a real smart man said once, buddy. People get the gov they deserve. If Persians wanted democracy, they’d have had democracy at some point in their 2500 years of existence. But nope, their history is 2500 years of dictators. Now you make nice with them.
I have always thought that Serbia deserved a break for its aid and sacrifices in WWII.
And I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that they were right or at least fighting the right enemy.
What did Clinton gain?
Given his track record of dirty dealings with foreign powers — my guess is he gained a nice fat deposit into one of his Swiss bank accounts.
Under Clinton, Albania went from a terrorist state where our ships were ordered not to enter their port to our new best friends.
If there is something to understand it’s clearly beyond my ken.
We happened to install one of those dictators you mentioned. I happen to think that the Shah was overall good for the people but again not all countries have been given the opportunity to choose their form of government. Right now, the people of Iran are attempting to assert their will and you think it might be a good idea to bomb them into the stone age? We should be assisting them to overthrow their illegitimate government not give them a good reason to hate us.
You yourself continued to link Islam to all these countries in post 25. I merely asked you a question. If you are not linking Islam to all of these Islamic countries, then pray tell who are we supposed to be carpet bombing? You know, the ones you refer to as “Islam”?
Albania is a bit different than Kosovo.
Like most ex-Communist states, Albanians who suffered under Communism are actually grateful for the US.
One of the silver linings to the 40+ years of Communist rule in Albania, is that the regime pretty much destroyed Islam in Albania, where today it is pretty much a non-factor.
In Kosovo, it’s a bit different, because the Tito regime did not crack down nearly as hard on religion.
And so now, you have a situation where the Kosovars believe they should be the rulers of all of the Greater Albania.
Whereas, people in Albania, want nothing to do with this.
Thanks. That makes sense.
“Its one thing to want to keep muslims from attaining power and influence; its another to intentionally commit genocide against anyone standing in their way”
I meant... in the Serbs’ way. I didn’t sufficiently clarify my point.
“What did Clinton gain?
Given his track record of dirty dealings with foreign powers my guess is he gained a nice fat deposit into one of his Swiss bank accounts.”
And a fresh intern to be named later.
