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).

I too will be listening to see what his defense happens to be. I participated in the air war over Bosnia and watched the smoke plumes rise from numerous villages where the ‘ethnic cleansing’ was happening. I support his efforts to rid his country of Moslem influence, if true, but genocide is indefensible.
The only genocide is the one planned by the Koran.
This may sound a little harsh but I think he was on the right track. In other places Muzzies are burning Churches and hacking up Christians and nobody says a word.
It's one thing to want to keep muslims from attaining power and influence; it's another to intentionally commit genocide against anyone standing in their way. Karadzic and that red-faced psycho Ratko Mladic were reprehensible bastards and both should be put to death in short order. They and their subordinates targeted and murdered a lot of innocent people.
Agreed. The sooner we can purge liberalism from our government, the sooner we too can act on the growing threat of Islam within our borders. I bet Karadzic didn’t have a Demoncrat congress to undermine his country at every step like we do.
Stop it! You’re making sense!
10-4. It’s one thing to stand up against what amounted to an invasion. It’s another to kill innocents.
Thanks. People forget the Bosnian Serbs targeted not only muslims but Croats as well. I read a lot of intel reports about Karadzic and Mladic -- they were nothing more than leaders of a murderous gang.
To this day, I still do not understand the US/NATO war on Serbia.
The country was disintegrating regardless, If Europeans felt their security was hurt, they should have taken the lead, the Cold War was long over and Russia was a basket-case, and we set up safe-havens for radical Muslims.
What did Clinton gain to make him do this?
>> It’s one thing to want to keep muslims from attaining power and influence; it’s another to intentionally commit genocide against anyone standing in their way
That doesn’t make sense.
The West was sent a thank you card postmarked 9/11,sent via air mail delivery, ironically from followers of the religion of "peace" it sought to appease.
I made these comements way back when the U.S. air war against Christians began, and I stand by them today.
I agree with Bismarck, “The Balkans are not worth the bones of a single Pomeranian Grenadier.”
He would have a fairly compelling and interesting argument is he had not tried to commit genocide. Rewriting history is not going to help his cause. It wasn’t that long ago where everyone has forgotten the atrocities he committed. I think he’s now using the war on terror and the current takeover by Muslims in Europe to try to gain some sympathy.
I think liberals are a threat to this country, but I have no intention of hopping in an APC, driving it to the University of Wisconsin, burning it down, and displacing the students and faculty to Canada.
I find it amusing how often “my” side falls for enemy propaganda...in a propaganda war.
So lets say Radovan did get a little crazy...in defense of his family, faith, and country. I bet he didn’t firebomb Dresden. I bet he didn’t nuke Nagasaki.
So the descendants of a people who JUSTLY killed enemy civilians think this guy was out of line because he MAYBE killed a (comparatively) few civilians. You think our bombers were picking targets or do you think carpet bombing was to shock the populace into compliance?
And you sit here on your computer, in the safety provided by our ancestors, who WERE willing to use the required measures...and you criticize this man for doing what he felt was necessary. lol. lol at all of you tools who criticize him. Go join your Mohammedan brothers. May you see a table cloth wrapped with a fan belt outside your window one day, screaming for your land and family. Make sure your response is appropriate. We wouldn’t want to judge you harshly.
And if anyone takes it this way, this isn’t a criticism of Dresden or Nagasaki. It is a defense of our actions there. We should have carpet bombed Islam into submission years ago, just like we steamrolled the Nazis and the Nips.
The logic in the statement doesn’t make sense to me - specifically, the subject of the second clause:
“its another to intentionally commit genocide against anyone standing in their way”
You’re confused. I am not criticising this man’s actions. I think they may well have been justified, and once we get a real conservative in power we might do well to follow suit to deal with the Mudslime threat before it’s too late.
What’s illogical about it?
