But explain this to me Bluster: If Milosevic can be indicted as he is a the top of the Chain of Command, why is Izetbegovic still free and no ministers of the Tudjman regime indicted??? Is it at this points that certain governments plead 'national security' or that such actions could destabilize the balkans further. The Hague is a joke. If there was a way to set up a court that could try major world criminals, the Hague is the perfect way NOT
to do it, and that is why it is a court for banana republics and why Senator Dole etc. says that a World Court will be DoA. That's not justice, but a media circus.

Hmm you have a point. If they can bring and indictment against Izetbegovic then I see no problem in bringing him before the Hague court. And if they can link him with the mujahadeen fighters, or even with Naser Oric and his forces, then there is nothing to argue about. Anyone responsible for war crimes should be held responsible.
And you can't say that the Hague court isn't doing their job. After all they have brought people of various nationalities before the court. You see it as a banana court, a media circus, I may not see it that way. Which doesn't mean that your criticism and objections aren't justified, but without this kind of court, there would be many people free with lot's of blood on their hands. Some still are. And don't say that they would be helf responsible at home, cause in many cases they clearly wouldn't be. The Croat generals that were eventually brought to Hague (with a lot of opposition in Croatia) would probably never be before a court, had there not been Hague and demands by the west towards Croatia to extradite them. Just as in Serbia. At least that's how I see it.
