Hague Tribunal mocks Croatian victims

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague has provisionally released the Serbian ultra-nationalist Vojislav Šešelj for health reasons after 12 years in custody, without concluding the trial against him. Šešelj has announced he will attend a demonstration by his supporters in Belgrade on Saturday. The Hague Tribunal has exposed itself to ridicule with Šešelj's release, the conservative tabloid 24 Sata rails: "On the occasion of the day of commemoration for the war victims of Vukovar, the Chetnik warlord will march on the streets of Belgrade. In the entire history of the tribunal in The Hague, there is no case as shameful as this one. It's intolerable that it demonstrates how the victims who were brutally executed by Šešelj's Chetnik fighters are being forgotten. Particularly cynical in this context is the condition stipulated by the court for releasing Šešelj, which forbids him from having any contact with victims or eyewitnesses."

US invasion was in vain

In view of the troop deployment to Iraq, the conservative tabloid 24 Sata comments that the US invasion of 2003 was in vain: "'Is this what we fought a war for?' the Americans ask themselves ever louder. Since the start of the invasion in 2003, 4,489 US soldiers have died and more than 30,000 have been wounded. ... The Iraqi regime has failed to halt the spiralling violence between Sunnis and Shiites. The Sunni minority killed Shiite religious leaders and opposition members during Saddam's rule. When the Shiites rose to power they took bloody revenge. Then the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds couldn't agree on how to split the profits from the oil business. ... The American side has lost many lives, ruined its reputation and also lost lucrative business deals that seemed so tempting."
