Not done just yet

The ICTY has a new guest on the way, Radovan Karadzic. In the 90's this un-fucking-hinged nationalist politician attempted to expel or kill every non-Serb in Bosnia-Herzegovina, a province of the fast-disintegrating Yugoslavia.

He lived a secretive life for a decade before the authorities pounced. Next it should be Ratko Mladic, Karadzic's military commander.

This makes my fucking day (with caveat: This will not give pause to any other maniacal nationalist dictator in the future!).

For all the people of the Balkans may this reinforce goodwill where it exists, and a flowering of understanding where it doesn't.

and peace

Later) a death camp commander from the second World War has died in prison.

Even later) it wasn't that secretive a life.
