    Default 14 Years Since The Srebrenica Genocide

    Monday, July 11, 2009 marks the 14-th anniversary of the beginning of the biggest massacre in Europe following World War II. On that day, Serbs began a liquidation of several thousand Bosnian men and boys from the world's first United Nations Safe Area - Srebrenica. An exact number of those executed will probably never be known, however, it has been proven that in Potocari, more than 3000 residents of Srebrenica lost their lives; the total number of victims is likely three times that figure.



    The Srebrenica enclave was a UN protected zone. After being granted permission from international troops, the civilian population caught in the town was evacuated in the direction of Tuzla. But although the commander of Serbian Army, General Ratko Mladic, with his military honor, guaranteed the security of all those evacuated, members of his army separated all men over the age of 15 and, without trial, sentenced them to death by execution.

    In the eyes of the law, the massacre in Srebrenica is considered an act of genocide. It shamed the entire Serb people, but also the international troops responsible for the safety of the population within the safe haven. To date, Karadzic and some second-rate perpetrators have been sent to the Hague to answer for this crime. Mladic is still not within the range of justice. Never Forget the Muslim Holocaust in Bosnia or any other Holocaust.

    It's always the same.

    Well, the UN is pretty much a useless organization.
