Carla del Ponte welcomed in Belgrade

The Serb government invited Carla del Ponte to Serbia over the weekend. Carla del Ponte is the Chief Prosecutor of the Hague 'victors' tribunal, formed for no other reason than to pin the blame for the crimes of our Euro-Atlantic friends on anyone but themselves. Usually when it comes to Serbia, all she does is whine about a lack of cooperation, but this time the Serb government invited her on their own initiative in an effort to woo her. She stated that what she heard was a 'breath of fresh air', and a 'revelation'. One wonders what those unscrupulous, corrupt, spineless career politicians told, or promised, her in private that elicited such a response from her.
Here is a BBC video covering her trip, which also contains some archive footage of Ratko Mladic (former commander of the Bosnian Serb army), who is top of her shopping list.

Speaking of war crimes, I never figured out how the Serbs got all the blame for the war there in the last decade. There were many Croats accused of atrocities, and the worst of the alleged atrocities were perpetrated by Mujahideen imported from Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan.

Double standards typical of modern news services and politicians....

Well the Croats and Albanians were funded and trained by Western forces. So the media coverage was just an extension of the government policies on the ground.
