'Nuff said! I sure hope you don't find anyone to disagree with you on that, but you never know around here....
Unlikely to be suicide, while his parents both died that way he was convinced that he had a legal case and was fighting to win it.
Boo-hoo for ol' Slobbo.
The only pity is that now he can't be convicted for his crimes against humanity so his followers can call him a martyr.
Well, that should save a few quid.
Finally, some decent news on the international front.
Neither was Hitler... but that's the only downside isn't it.
How long has his trial been going on?
I was getting very tired of hearing about his outbursts in court and such.
Good - I only wish that they would try and execute him anyway, just like in the good old days of the cadaver synod.
Amen to that.
I try never to wish death on anyone, but I can't say I feel bad about this happening to someone like him.
what did he do exactly to be put on trial for war crimes? i've been reading his wikipedia entry, and it's not really making any sense to me.
The short answer is genocide - his regime included some ethnic cleansing activity straight out of the Nazi school of social engineering. The issue is much more complex than that, but that is probably the most high-profile of the crimes he's accused of.
On a related note, Milosevic's death will hopefully highlight the need to catch that b*stard Radko Mladic, who is apparently still being sheltered by some of Serbia's more conservative curmudgeons. That guy must go before the Hague.
One less murdering mongrel of a man. Good.
an eye for an eye
(ok really two eyes for thousands)
why did it take so long ?
I'm not going to be losing a great deal of sleep over his death, but as Applespider says, it would have been preferential to have seen his trial completed so he could have been properly brought to account for the atrocities committed under his regime.
EDIT: Just up on the BBC – preliminary results from the autopsy indicate he died of a heart attack.
keep that up and we'll all be blind...
War in bosnia, war in Kosovo, brutal (makes the Third Reich look like mother goose) genocide's in both wars.
Having visited the balkans twice (once during the Kosovo war and once in Sarajevo) and seeing his dirty work up close, I can say the feeling is mutual.
Pleeeeaaaaase tell me how does the Third Reich* look like a mother goose comparing to civil war in ex-Yugoslavia . Or is the genocide in WWII some non-brutal one?
Anyways, thank you for making me register here... Your post was screaming for reply
*("In January 1942, at the Wannsee conference under the supervision of Reinhard Heydrich, a plan for the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question" (Endlösung der Judenfrage) in Europe was hatched. From then until the end of the war some six million Jews and many others, including homosexuals, Slavs and political prisoners, were systematically killed. In addition, more than 10 million people were put into forced labor." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_reich)
Yes, the issue is much more complex than that. Milosevic didn't have the luck to die before the trial as his accomplices in crime Tudjman and Izetbegovic. At least he managed to keep peace in his country during the war in Bosnia and Croatia, and ethnic structure remained unchanged. At least until Monica's blow job (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowjob)...
Can't agree more... Hope to see him in the Hague as soon as possible.
Weird. Simply weird.
Sure makes one wonder about the Catholic church.
