The accusations about what happened at Srebrenica are not confined simply to the "yammerings of a bunch of Islamic terrorists". The initial allegations may have come from Muslims but these were subsequently studied by both non-governmental agencies such as the Red Cross and also by western governmental investigators, including the US government. They're not infallible, of course. God knows they've screwed up the Iraq situation completely.

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".

And under the Clinton administration no less. Back before 9/11, when catering to Muslim yammering was a given.

There is nothing Christian about beleiving known liars and punishing Christians for their allegations. These are the same Muslims caught in the act manufacturing casualties in Lebanon TWICE.

That's not the way murder investigations work. Someone accuses, experts investigate. There was no evidence found to support the claim, and the allegations come from known liars funded by Al Qaeda.

Some folks you just can't reach.

Like the Serbs, for instance.

Which is why we have the USAF.
