Radovan Karadžić Arrested. Finally!

This just in: According to various news reports, Radovan Karadžić, one of Europe’s most wanted men, directly responsible for genocide of Bosnian Muslims in Bosnia-Hercegovina during the 1993-95 war was arrested in Serbia hours ago.

The arrest was confirmed by the office of the President of Serbia Boris Tadić, without giving details. I imagine this is a high-risk game for Serbian leadership as Karadžić and general Ratko Mladić (who remains at large) have quite a following in Serbia and Republic of Srbska in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Hopefuly Serbian President Boris Tadić will fare better than the late Zoran Djindjić.

Perhaprs, just perhaps, the wars of Yugoslavia will finally be brought to an end.

  1. After the first couple of hours looking for reactions, caution seems to prevail. Noone wants to get his/her hopes too high too soon.

  2. Apparently the war crimes he committed during the war weren’t enough for him.

    To wipe out even more people, he started practicing alternative medicine!!!

  3. Serbian government is dealing quite well with the situation after the arest. Hopefully, two more busts will follow soon. Let’s put these criminals into history books where they belong. (The books of crimes which happen again and again until we learn the lesson.)
