It really was the only way out for them wasn't it?
It stops Slobo exposing, as he had done so brilliantly- the extent of Western collaboration with Islamic militants in Bosnia and Kosovo. http://www.balkanalysis.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=624
And the embarrassment of having to pass a guilty verdict, even though after four years they could come up with nothing. A succession of independent doctors warned that Milosevic was in serious danger of a heart attack, but their warnings were deliberately ignored. Now we have the grotesque sight of Paddy Ashdown claiming that Milosevic has 'escaped' justice. Ashdown, a man, who was caught on video inspecting a Kosovan Liberation Army weapons cache and promising the drug-dealing terrorist group Western assistance.
Milosevic's only crime- as I have said no many occasions, was getting in the way of The Empire. For doing that, he has paid a very heavy price. May he Rest in Peace.
PS If anyone does think the prosecution at the Hague Tribunal produced evidence of Milosevic's alleged crimes- please send it on to me.
