Falsifying Green Cards, etc is one thing (and I wish the Feds would be so diligent in pursuing any such cases).
The war crimes charge though is ridiculous.
It's already been proven there was no massacure nor any ethnic cleansing.
These people aren't sucking our social services dry, sounds like they are and have been paying their own way. It's sad for the wives and children caught up in this. Some will have to go on welfare or go back to Serbia if they have any families left to help them.
"Scott Raspopovich, who is president of St. Sava Serbian church, doesn't understand why only Serbs are being hauled in for questioning, when Croatians and Muslims also killed people in the war. "If you define war crimes as shooting the enemy, yes, these men probably all did. But what choice did they have?" he said."
Silly question. They aren't Mohammedans or Latins. They are the hated Orthodox.
Proven by whom?
Spanish experts who went in looking for evidence. They found something like 300 bodies (not thousands) and the losses were as heavy on both sides.
All over the place, google Experts Kosovo Genocide.
While you're at it you might take a look at a real tradgedy:
The Serbs should have taken sanctuary in a church, that seems to work for illegal/ID theft Latina aliens. Then they could send their kids all over the world crying about the injustice of the United States against "immigrants".
You do understand the difference between a proof and a counter-claim, yes?
There are always dissenting opinions about historical events. There are still those who claim the Holocaust never happened, for instance. So it doesn't surprise me that there is a school of thought which wants to cast doubt on the occurrence of a massacre at Srebrenica. But proof? That's another level.
Your Kosovo reference escapes me. The men quoted in the article were quizzed about Srebrenica, no?
Last I heard you had to do more then aledge murder you had to prove it.
The yammering of a bunch of Islamic terrorists isn't proof in my book.
Asking the (Christian I might add) Serbs to proove the didn't kill a bunch of Muslims who's bodies can't even be found, and charging them with war crimes if they can't is nothing like justice.
Neither do I subscribe to the theory that because a Muslim said it, it must therefore be a lie or because a "Christian" Serb said it, it must be true. I'm well aware that in the post 9/11 world, killing a Muslim is now considered to be a public service in some circles, especially on FR but that has no bearing on the veracity of claims about what happened at Srebrenica, neither does it gel with Christian principles.
You made the claim that the massacre allegations were proven to be false. Your "proof" is simply an ad hominem argument which asks us to take the word of, "Christian" Serbs over "Islamic terrorists".
I am just thinking, where would they get any kind of hard evidence to prove that any one of those Serbs actually committed a war crime.
If we have that kind of capability, then we should have no problems finding Osama. But the problem is that we try to circumvent lack of evidence by making circumstantial allegations equal to evidence in order to create some sort of imaginary justice.
The fuzziness and the hysteria involved in this serbophobic witchunt is evident from the fact that 15 were arrested and 10 released the next day! The authorities acted on a tip (could have been even a malicious one), and without sufficient evidence simply arrested innocent people.
They are also comfortable knowing that immigrants will not sue the state, so no special precautionary measures are necessary.
The mad dog we have created in Bush-controlled America will one day turn on Americans. One of these days, you will be going home from work and you will find yourself in jail for being near or for working in a corporation that is accused of something. You will be arrested on nothing more than someone's malicious tip, or something similar.
Having said that, falsifying records in order to obtain a green card is a real subject the courts should be spending tax-payers' money on, along with catching all the illegals that are coming out of the woodwork.
If the courts are really after falsifiers of green cards, we would be reading about it every day, for I am sure the Serbs are not the only ones who could possibly do such a thing!
Indeed if Feds with guns showed up to arrest every person over staying a visa there'd be no ilegal immigration problem.
So you want us to prove a negative in light of the fact that the alleged massacre cannot be proved?
A Balkans ping!
