The massacre of 8,000 Muslims in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica, in July 1995, is now being remembered worldwide, as this grim event reaches its fifteenth anniversary. This was the largest single mass killing of the entire Bosnian war, and indeed, it was the worst massacre that Europe has seen since the 1940s. The massacre also helped redefine the way that people of progressive political orientation have assessed the idea of U.S. intervention. For many, the key lesson of Srebrenica is that the United States should have used military force against the Serbs sooner than they did. It is often »

Samantha Power: The day Srebrenica fell was the worst day of my life Yes, it was a genocide in Srebrenica • Obama has a personal interest in Bosnia • There is no firm peace without justice Veličina slova: Erol Avdović 11/07/2010 16:51:00 She is probably the best known author in the world when it comes to the question of genocide.

The long overdue sight of Radovan Karadzic in The Hague facing trial for genocide is a useful reminder of wars past. In 1995, after three and a half years of killing, an American-led NATO bombing campaign helped stop Karadzic’s atrocities and turned the Bosnian Serb leader into a fugitive. But do the humanitarian interventions typified by America’s interventions in Bosnia and Kosovo have a future? Even as Darfur bleeds, Iraq has become a grim object lesson in the dangers of foreign adventures. The former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright recently wrote that “many of the world’s necessary interventions in »

SARAJEVO, May 23, 1993 - Two lovers lie dead on the banks of Sarajevo’s Miljacka river, locked in a final embrace. For four days they have sprawled near Vrbana bridge in a wasteland of shell-blasted rubble, downed tree branches and dangling power lines. So dangerous is the area no one has dared recover their bodies. Bosko Brckic and Admira Ismic, both 25, were shot dead on Wednesday trying to escape the besieged Bosnian capital for Serbia. Sweethearts since high school, he was a Serb and she was a Moslem. "They were shot at the same time, but he fell instantly »

By ARTHUR MAX, Associated Press Writer1 hour, 27 minutes ago Generals and politicians have been convicted of genocide, but the U.N.'s highest court will consider Monday whether a nation in this case Serbia can be guilty of humanity's worst crime. The stakes potentially include billions of dollars and history's judgment. Thirteen years after Bosnia filed the case with the International Court of Justice, its lawyers will lay out their lawsuit against Serbia and Montenegro the successor state for the defunct Yugoslavia charging it with a premeditated attempt to destroy Bosnia's Muslim population, in whole or part. »

WE ARE BEGINNING TO DETECT A SHORTFALL IN ... OUR DATA BASE. - Cable sent by the U.N. Special Representative in the Balkans, Yasushi Akashi, on 13 July 1995, two days into the gendercidal massacres at Srebrenica in Bosnia.(2) From the opening hours of the 1999 war in Kosovo, an overriding tactic was evident in Serb military strategy: the gender-selective detention and mass killing of ethnic-Albanian men, especially those of "battle age."
