    UN urges West to ignore Serbia's arrest warrant for Kosovo PM PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro-Kosovo's top U.N. official has urged Western powers to ignore an international arrest warrant issued by Serbia against the province's prime minister, in a letter obtained Wednesday. Soren Jessen-Petersen, the chief U.N. official in charge of running the province, said that his mission did not recognize the validity of the warrant issued in Serbia against Agim Ceku, a former rebel commander who became Kosovo's prime minister earlier this month. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, Jessen-Petersen cited the U.N.'s sole legal jurisdiction over Kosovo and said...

    "No one now disputes that stopping Slobodan Milosevic was the right thing to do,” wrote the Wall Street Journal this week, several days after the deposed Serbian strongman expired in his cell in The Hague. It’s an appealing sentiment, suggesting as it does that the man who presided over the deaths of 250,000 people in Yugoslavia in the 1990s died unsung and unmourned. In reality, however, even Slobodan Milosevic had his defenders. What is more, they are the same voices--largely on the far Left but also on the isolationist Right--who have now taken up the cause of Saddam Hussein. Many...

    I was one of the last western journalists to meet Slobodan Milosevic. Having been called to The Hague as a potential witness, I spent an hour in his cell in January last year. Like most who met him, I found him polite and intelligent. "We will win," he told me. "Freedom is a universal value. They have no evidence against me." If the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia were a proper court of law, the charges against him would have been dismissed long ago. Unfortunately, it is a highly politicised organ, created on the initiative of the very...

    BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro - A Socialist Party aide of Slobodan Milosevic said Saturday that the ex-president was defiant just before his death. "He told me, 'Don't you worry: They will not destroy me or break me; I shall defeat them all,'" said Milorad Vucelic of the Socialist Party, recounting a phone conversation with Milosevic late Friday. "But it was obvious he was very ill." Milosevic, who was found dead Saturday in his cell at the Netherlands-based war crimes court near The Hague, was daily in contact with Socialist party officials in Belgrade as he carried out his own defense before the...

    The U.N. war crimes tribunal hopes an autopsy on Slobodan Milosevic on Sunday will clear up the cause of his death in his cell only months before a verdict was due in his four-year-old trial. Milosevic, branded the "Butcher of the Balkans" for conflicts that tore Yugoslavia apart in the 1990s, was found dead on Saturday, prompting some world figures and relatives of war victims to say they had been robbed of justice. As questions were raised as to why the trial had dragged on for so long, a tribunal spokeswoman said there was no indication the 64-year-old former Yugoslav...

He was 64. Milosevic, who suffered chronic heart ailments and high blood pressure, apparently died of natural causes and was found in his bed, the U.N. tribunal said, without giving an exact time of death. He had been examined following frequent complaints of fatigue or ill health that delayed his trial, but the tribunal could not immediately say when his last medical checkup...

    WASHINGTON — Most people in the United States want Saddam Hussein to hang if he's convicted at his trial, a view not shared by some longtime American allies. AP-Ipsos polling in eight other countries, where the death penalty mostly has been abolished, found that people there prefer that the former Iraqi leader spend the rest of his life in prison. The countries are Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, South Korea and Spain. Similar, but less dramatic, disparities were found when U.S. attitudes were compared with the eight countries on whether Saddam is getting a fair trial and whether Iraqis...

    Saddam Hussein has told his lawyers that he wants to be shot by firing squad, not hanged, if sentenced to death during his murder trial, which resumes later this month in Baghdad. Saddam maintains that he is still commander in chief of Iraq's armed forces -- and that a firing squad is "the right way" to execute a military leader. "I'm not afraid of death," he told two of his lawyers in an astonishingly candid five-hour meeting, as he sat in a comfortable chair at the head of the table. "Of course I'm not guilty, but I know they want...

    A Croatian general charged with war crimes has been held in Spain, the UN's chief war crimes prosecutor has said. Ante Gotovina - the third most-wanted suspect from the 1990s Balkan wars - was arrested on Wednesday night in the Canary Islands, said Carla Del Ponte. Gen Gotovina, 50, is accused over the death of about 150 Serb civilians during a Croatian offensive in 1995. The Croatian government's failure to arrest him had hampered the country's entry talks with the European Union. Ms Del Ponte said she hoped efforts would now be stepped up to arrest the top two men...

Working with Zogby on the poll was the University of Maryland's 'Sadat Chair for Peace and Development's' Department. The questions were put to a cross-section of Arabs in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Given the choices between Germany, Great Britain, France, the United States and Sweden, a plurality of 45% picked France. The poll reveals how effectively the liberal mainstream has poisoned...

    Senior Bush administration officials have considered the unthinkable: What if Saddam Hussein is found not guilty in his trial? "There will be more charges filed against him, and more charges after that, if needed... he has committed tremendous crimes," a top Bush source explained last week from Washington. Saddam and seven of his former henchmen currently face charges of crimes against humanity over a 1982 massacre of Shiite villagers. A defiant Saddam has refused to recognize the court and has declared himself president of Iraq. Prosecutors hope to win a conviction by using videotape of Saddam issuing assignation orders.

But hanging will be seen by victims and their relatives as too good for him after his sadistic 30-year reign of terror. As The Sun newspaper's graphic pictures show, his years of corrupt and absolute power are over. Moves are under way to spare his life in an act of mercy HE refused his victims.

In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning."

Primakov, former Russian foreign minister and prime minister, was testifying in defense of the former Yugoslav president, who is charged with genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the Balkans in the 1990s. Primakov said the Western media had portrayed Serbs as "aggressors" and after Bill Clinton was elected U.S. president in 1992, Washington became increasingly anti-Serb.

    For three years as a Military Police Lieutenant Colonel, I was assigned to Headquarters U.S. Army, Criminal Investigation Command, Washington DC. From Dec. 1971 to Jan. 1975 I was responsible for monitoring all war crime investigations conducted by the CID. On Apr 22, 1971 Lieutenant (jg), John F. Kerry, USNR, testified to a Senate Committee concerning supposed war crime atrocities committed by U.S. Military Personnel. He claimed that we: raped; tortured; acted "in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan"; murdered 200,000 each year; and were "more guilty than any other body" of violating the Geneva Convention. The U.S. Navy Criminal...

    Despite my many on-air (television and radio) and in-print (virtual and literal) detailed discussions on John Kerry’s sordid, treacherous past, and despite the admissions cited below, the junior senator from Massachusetts stands about an even chance of being elected to the presidency on 2 November. This grim fact makes me wonder if our nation has finally begun an inevitable slide into a moral abyss from which there is no escape. To that end, here’s a final piece before the election on the traitorous, villainous man-whore known best as “Hanoi John.” In testimony before the United States Senate Armed Services Committee...

    On 9/12/2004 I watched the Kerry Lied Rally on C-SPAN. It an until about 4:30PM EST. Immediately after, they ran a segment with John O'Neill talking about his book at length. In the Q&A afterwards he mentioned that there had been some kind of legal action taken against Kerry.

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- A former soldier who accused American troops of committing war crimes in Vietnam has recently come forward to recant those charges. Steven J. Pitkin appeared at the "Winter Soldier Investigation" conducted in Detroit in 1971 by former Navy Lieutenant John Kerry and his group, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, but now says that his statements were coerced. In a sworn affidavit on August 31, 2004, Pitkin said that he rode in a van with John Kerry, a national leader of the VVAW, Scott Camil, and others from Washington, DC to attend the conference.

    Vast attention has been given to the ads in which Swift Boat Veterans For Truth allege that John Kerry lied about his Vietnam service, but we’ve been looking at the wrong question. The question is not whether Kerry is a hero or the liberal version of Major Frank “Ferret Face” Burns from “M*A*S*H.” The question is whether Kerry is a traitor or a war criminal, or both. If that seems like strong language, you haven’t read Kerry’s book, The New Soldier, which you can find at www.wintersoldier.com. It details some of Kerry’s activities with Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW)...

    TIGER FORCE - Ex-officer may face justice for atrocities - Army lawyer calls for war-crime charge By JOE MAHR, BLADE STAFF WRITER Three decades after an Army platoon repeatedly executed unarmed civilians and prisoners in Vietnam, a military lawyer has recommended the unit's former commander be brought up on a war-crime charge.

    Listening to the Jay Severin Show. Hannity is on, and just said that they have found film of Kerry burning down huts in Vietnam. They haven't got permission from the Cavett show yet, but he sounded as if they believed they would have it by next week for the Hannity and Colmes show.

    In his harshest comments to date about John Kerry, Sen. John McCain said Monday that the presidential candidate's claims he committed atrocities during the Vietnam war is a "legimitate" area of concern that requires further explanation. Asked if Kerry should be asked to provide details about his 1971 admission on the Dick Cavett Show that he commited atrocities that violated the Geneva and Hague Conventions, McCain told ABC network radio host Sean Hannity, "I think that, that's legitimate. I do." But McCain defended Kerry's controversial testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee just three months before the Cavett broadcast, where...

    Recently I have read that John Kerry has told the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that he was not referring to them in his senate speech in 1971, but to all the other Vietnam War veterans. Well, we should apply the same standard to this that Kerry and his news pals have used, that is; That Kerry did not serve in their tent, unit, team, foxhole, aircraft, patrol unit, or squad so therefore he cannot know what these men were doing or not doing. Therefore, because by his own admission that by these standards the SBVT could not have known...
