PRIJEDOR, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Several thousand people attended a funeral service in Bosnia on Saturday for 86 Muslims who were slain by Serbs in one of the worst atrocities of the country's 1992-95 war.

Relatives of the victims, religious leaders and others gathered at a soccer stadium near the eastern town of Prijedor, standing solemnly behind lines of coffins draped with green cloths.

The victims ranged in age from 19 to 61. They were among some 200 Bosnian Muslims and Croats from Prijedor who were massacred in August 1992 on a cliff on Mt. Vlasic known as Koricanske Stijene.

The victims were shot and killed by the edge of the cliff, their bodies falling into the abyss. The Serbs later threw bombs onto the bodies, which made identifying the victims difficult.

The United Nations war crimes tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia sentenced several ex-Bosnian Serb policemen for separating civilians from a convoy of people being deported from Prijedor and killing them.

Armin Suljanovic buried some of his brother's remains Saturday alongside bone fragments that were previously identified and laid to rest. Suljanovic said his wife's brothers and father were also being buried after the joint service.

"My relatives and I have been suffering for the past 27 years. It is a painful destiny to have, but now, at least, we'll know where they are buried, we'll have a place to visit to say a prayer for them," he said.

More than 3,000 Bosnian Muslims and other non-Serbs were killed in Prijedor during the war. Many were taken to prison camps where they were beaten, starved and tortured.

Bosnian Serbs have been accused of carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing during the war, expelling non-Serbs from the territories they controlled during the war such as Prijedor.

Quote
SARAJEVO/BELGRADE (Reuters) - Survivors of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre called on Friday for Austrian author Peter Handke's Nobel Prize for Literature to be revoked, saying it was "shameful" to recognize a man who has denied the killings happened.

Their anger echoed criticism of Thursday's decision in many Balkan countries over Handke's open support for late Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, who led his country during the Balkan Wars of the 1990s.
...
Handke spoke at Milosevic's funeral in 2006 after the Serbian leader died while in detention awaiting trial at the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague for his role in the wars.

The Austrian also voiced support for Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, both of whom were convicted of genocide for the killing of more then 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the United Nations protected enclave of Srebrenica.

Though much of the reaction to the prize was negative in the Balkans, it won some applause in Serbia.

"The news that you have won the Nobel Prize for Literature has confirmed that virtue and water always find their way and that the struggle for freedom and the right to choice ... is not in vain," Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin, an ally of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s, said in a message to Handke.
...
An online petition launched by an Albanian citizen called for Handke to be stripped of his Nobel prize and had been signed by 30,000 people in less than 24 hours.

"Never thought would feel like vomiting because of a @nobelprize but shamelessness is becoming the normal part of the world we live in," Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama said on Twitter.

Quote
On 8 July 2015, Russia, at the request of the Republika Srpska and Serbia, vetoed a UN resolution condemning the Srebrenica massacre as genocide. Serbia called the resolution "anti-Serb", while European and U.S. governments affirmed that the crimes were genocide.[30][31] On 9 July 2015, both the European Parliament (EP) and the U.S. Congress adopted resolutions reaffirming the description of the crime as genocide.[32][33]

(Where have we seen this behaviour before?)

Indeed:

Quote
a culture of denial of the Srebrenica genocide in Serbian society, taking many forms and present in particular in political discourse, the media, the law and the educational system.[341]
The scepticism ranges from challenging the judicial recognition of the killings as an act of genocide to the denial of a massacre having taken place.

And for completeness:

Quote
The director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center office in Israel, Efraim Zuroff, also disagrees that Serb forces had genocidal intent. He explained: "As far as I know, what happened [in Srebrenica] does not [fit] the description or the definition of genocide. I think the decision to call it genocide was made for political reasons. Obviously a tragedy occurred, innocent people lost their lives and their memory should be preserved." Zuroff also called attempts to equate Srebrenica to the Holocaust "horrible" and "absurd"

news.yahoo.com/bosnian-serb-ex-soldier-jailed-145936953.html

SARAJEVO (Reuters) - A Bosnian court jailed a former Bosnian Serb soldier for 20 years on Wednesday for setting ablaze 57 Muslim Bosniaks, of whom 26 including a two-day-old baby died, near the eastern town of Visegrad early in Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

Radomir Susnjar, 64, known as Lalco, was also found guilty of robbery and illegal detention of civilians, the court said.

The group of Muslim Bosniaks had been seized after an attack on the village of Koritnik and locked in a house that was set ablaze with an accelerant and explosives while Susnjar and other Bosnian Serb Army members shot at it to prevent anyone fleeing.

"The attack resulted in the killing of 25 civilians and a two-day-old baby whose remains were never found," the court said in a statement.
...
Bosnian Serbs Milan and Sredoje Lukic were sentenced by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 2012 to life and 27 years in prison respectively for the same crimes.

Bosnian Serb forces, helped by the now-defunct Serb-dominated Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) and Serbian paramilitaries, committed atrocities against Muslims in eastern Bosnia early in the conflict as part of their bid to create exclusively Serb territories.


It doesn't matter how many years they are imprisoned for. So long as Serbia exists, they will feel that it was all worth it, and that they won their war. This is why eliminating Serbia is necessary. They (and the whole watching world) must be shown that they did not win, that the territories they stole for themselves will be returned to their victims. (The same applies to Israel and all other intended ethnostates.)

Quote
SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnia's war crimes prosecutor on Friday indicted Milan Lukic, the Bosnian Serb paramilitary leader given a life sentence by a U.N. war crimes tribunal, for taking part in the kidnapping and killing of 20 people during the Bosnian war.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague convicted Lukic in 2009 of war crimes committed during the break-up of Yugoslavia in the 1990s and his life sentence was upheld by an appeals court in 2012.

The Bosnian prosecutor issued the indictment for a crime that wasn't covered by the ICTY case after interrogating Lukic in Estonia, where he is serving his life sentence.

Lukic, 52, led a paramilitary group called the White Eagles or Avengers who seized, tortured and executed 20 people, mainly Muslims, from a train passing through Bosnia en route to the Montenegrin port of Bar from Serbia, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

The indictment now goes to Bosnia's state court for confirmation. It was not clear what would happen if the charges were confirmed since Lukic has been jailed for life by the ICTY.

"The court will decide. The court first needs to confirm the indictment," a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said.

Convicts sentenced to life by the ICTY can request to be released after serving 30 years.

According to the prosecutor's statement, Lukic's group stopped the train, seized the victims, took them to a school in eastern Bosnia where they were beaten, tortured and robbed, and then took them to a place where Lukic took part in their murder.

"The defendant is accused of personally taking part in planning and ... kidnapping of civilians and their murder on the bank of the Drina River on Feb. 27, 1993," the prosecutor's office said, adding that Lukic had been charged with war crimes against the civilian population.

The victims were thrown into the Drina River. The remains of only four people have been found until now, it said.

Lukic is most notorious for barricading 70 Muslim men, women and children in a house in the eastern town of Visegrad in 1992 before setting it on fire, in what became known as the Pionirska Street massacre. He shot at people trying to escape.

Fifteen members of Lukic's group were arrested in Bosnia and Serbia in 2014 and all are being tried at courts in Sarajevo and Belgrade.

Quote
SARAJEVO (Reuters) - A Bosnian war crimes prosecutor on Tuesday indicted a Bosnian Serb former army general for taking part in the 1995 massacre of about 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, an atrocity described as genocide by two international courts.

Milomir Savcic, 60, is accused of commanding the Bosnian Serb Army headquarters 65 Protection Motorised Regiment, which included a military police battalion, to capture, kill and bury adult Muslim Bosniaks from the U.N.-protected eastern enclave of Srebrenica in July 1995.

Bosnian Serb forces led by General Ratko Mladic attacked Srebrenica on July 11, 1995, separated men from women and children, and killed about 8,000 Muslims, who were then buried in mass graves.

The Srebrenica massacre is regarded as Europe's worst atrocity since World War Two.

Savcic consciously helped Mladic and colonel Ljubisa Beara, as well as other commanders of the Drina Corps and Zvornik Brigade, which executed the massacre, to destroy the Muslim men as an ethnic group in the area, the prosecutor said in a statement.

Both Mladic and Beara were jailed for life over the Srebrenica genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

"Savcic is accused of planning, commanding and supervising the activities ... during the capture and detention of several hundred Bosniak men at several locations in the Nova Kasaba area, and their illegal arrest, torture and murder," the statement said.

Quote
Ariel Sharon criticised the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999 as an act of "brutal interventionism".[79] Sharon said both Serbia and Kosovo have been victims of violence. He said prior to the current Yugoslav campaign against Kosovo Albanians, Serbians were the targets of attacks in the Kosovo province. "Israel has a clear policy. We are against aggressive actions. We are against hurting innocent people. I hope that the sides will return to the negotiating table as soon as possible." During the crisis, Elyakim Haetzni said the Serbs should be the first to receive Israeli aid. "There are our traditional friends," he told Israel Radio."[80] It was suggested that Sharon may have supported the Yugoslav position because of the Serbian population's history of saving Jews during the holocaust.[81] On Sharon's death, Serbian minister Aleksandar Vulin stated: The Serbian people will remember Sharon for opposing the 1999 NATO bombing campaign against the former Yugoslavia and advocating respect for sovereignty of other nations and a policy of not interfering with their internal affairs.[82]

Someone remembers when the US was the good guy (Clinton admininstration):

www.yahoo.com/news/kosovo-president-rejects-eu-mediator-150854890.html

Quote
PRISTINA (Reuters) - Kosovo President Hashim Thaci said on Tuesday he would not take part in talks on normalising ties with Serbia led by an European Union special mediator, calling instead for an increased U.S. role in the dialogue.
...
Normalisation is among key conditions the EU has set for admitting Kosovo as a member state, and by Russia, a traditional ally of Serbia, to lift its veto on Kosovo joining the United Nations.
...
Thaci said only the United States, which brokered Bosnia's peace accord 25 years ago and led NATO's 1999 air strikes that halted Serbia's brutal counter-insurgency campaign in Kosovo, could really advance dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia.

That was one time when the US had a president who behaved like an American and not like a Westerner.

Quote
PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and nine other former separatist fighters were indicted Wednesday on a range of crimes against humanity and war crimes charges, including murder, by an international prosecutor probing their actions against ethnic Serbs and others during and after Kosovo’s 1998-99 independence war with Serbia.
...
A statement from the prosecutor of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers said Thaci and the nine others “are criminally responsible for nearly 100 murders” involving hundreds of Serb and Roma victims, as well as Kosovo Albanian political opponents.
...
Thaci was a commander of the so-called Kosovo Liberation army, or KLA, that fought for independence from Serbia. The war left more than 10,000 dead — most of them ethnic Albanians — and 1,641 are still unaccounted for. It ended after a 78-day NATO air campaign against Serbian troops.
...
The indicted group includes Kadri Veseli, former parliament speaker and leader of the opposition Democratic Party of Kosovo.

Veseli said the indictment is politically motivated.
...
“Crimes in Kosovo were committed by Serbs, not Albanians,” he said, calling it an attempt to rewrite history.
...
Kosovo politicians resisted and resented the scrutiny of the war crimes court, repeatedly noting that Serb troops committed massacres and other atrocities during the war that went unpunished.

This is why it was a mistake to leave Serbia undestroyed.

The film is a searing indictment of the impotence of the Dutch peacekeepers, who had waited in vain for promised NATO air support, and found themselves powerless to defend the camp against Mladic's army.

The Dutch peacekeepers "had a mission to protect people even with weapons and they didn't fire a single shot," Zbanic told journalists.

Have we learned our lesson yet? If so, when do we starting dropping WMDs on Serbia? Because so long as we don't, it proves we have learned nothing.

Quote
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnian Serb authorities on Wednesday held an official commemoration for a top former wartime leader, despite his war crimes conviction by a U.N. court.

The Bosnian Serb president, prime minister and other officials attended the event in the northern city of Banja Luka, the seat of the Serb-run part of Bosnia called Republika Srpska.

The gathering illustrates the continued Bosnian Serb denial of their wartime leaders’ role in the atrocities committed against non-Serbs during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia.

Momcilo Krajisnik, who was parliamentary speaker during the conflict, was sentenced to 20 years in prison by the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, for persecuting and expelling non-Serbs.

Krajisnik died early on Tuesday in Banja Luka at the age of 75 after contracting the new coronavirus.

A leading Bosnian Serb official, Milorad Dodik, who is the member of Bosnia's multi-ethnic presidency, praised Krajsnik's “historic role” in establishing the Serb entity in Bosnia, according to Bosnian Serb broadcaster RTRS.

“Republika Srpska must not shy away from its founders, and one of them is Momcilo Krajisnik,” Dodik said, suggesting that a street should be named after him, the report said.

Krajisnik was released from a British prison in 2013 after serving two-thirds of the sentence. He was a close aide to Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, who was convicted of genocide by the Hague tribunal.

Bosnian Serb forces took control of large swaths of Bosnian territory, expelling Bosniaks, who are mostly Muslims, and Croats from their homes and brutally killing thousands.

How much longer must we wait before we invade?

SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnian police on Tuesday detained two Serb ex-soldiers accused of taking part in the murder of at least 78 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) civilians early in the Bosnian war of the 1990s, the state prosecution said in a statement.

A quarter of a century after the U.S.-sponsored Dayton peace accords ended the war among Bosnian Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks in which about 100,000 people were killed, many war criminals are still at large in the ethnically divided country.

Unčanin Boško, 51, and Despot Dragan, 56, are accused of violating the provisions of the Geneva conventions on the protection of civilians during wartime and of crimes against humanity, the prosecutor's office said.

They were detained in the northwestern city of Banja Luka.

The two former Bosnian Serb army soldiers are suspected of driving the Bosniak civilians out of a school in the western village of Velagici in which they were detained, lining them up and, firing from automatic rifles with other soldiers, killing at least 78, the statement said.

And how many have yet to be caught? Do you think it is realistic to catch them all one by one? And even if you do catch them all, so what? Serbia will continue to exist, in other words they will have succeeded in doing what they set out to do, even though they were caught decades afterwards.

Only by making them watch Serbia be wiped off the map can they be denied their satisfaction.

PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo’s foreign minister said on Wednesday that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic would not be allowed to visit the country until he apologized for “genocide” against Kosovo's population.

Meliza Haradinaj-Stublla also posted on Twitter that no entry permission would be granted for Serb officials until Serbians are held accountable for “genocide” in an international court.

“I repeat once again the only and permanent response to all future demands from Vucic and others: there is no permission for you to visit Kosovo if you do not apologize for the genocide committed on our people and until responsible persons of this genocide are held accountable,” she said.
...
Haradinaj-Stublla reacted following Vucic' presence at the inauguration of a hospital in Belgrade where a mass grave of 744 ethnic Albanians killed in 1999 has been found.

Several mass graves with the bodies of Kosovo Albanians killed by Serb troops during the 1998-99 war have been discovered in various parts of Serbia. Moving victims from Kosovo to Serbia was part of a coverup operation by Serbian authorities at the time to try to hide evidence of war crimes.

Last week the European Union’s mission to ensure the rule of law in Kosovo said human remains that appear to be a mass grave of ethnic Albanians from Kosovo have been found in a disused coal mine in Kizevak in southern Serbia.
...
Although several of its top military officers have been sentenced by a UN court for war crimes during the 1998-99 war, Serbia has never admitted committing atrocities in its former province.

And they will continue this behaviour until we bomb them again. Bombing is the only language Serbs understand.

Quote
Representatives of Serbs who returned to Bosnia’s Federation entity after fleeing during the war strongly opposed the construction of the camp near Lipa, a village where post-war Serb returnees live, because they claimed that the mainly Muslim migrants and refugees could be a threat to them.

Let's hope they really are a threat!

Quote
They argued that the construction of a migrant centre in near Lipa was a message to Serbs that they are not welcome in Bosnia’s Bosniak- and Croat-dominated Federation entity.

Again, I hope they are right and I hope the non-Serb Bosnian authorities will eventually start confiscating all Serb property in Bosnia (including and especially in the "Republika Srpska") in order to redistribute it to refugees in need of shelter after the previous Serb owners were deported to concentration camps.

Merely allowing others to do Ahimsa is punishable under False Leftism:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/bosnian-muslim-ex-commander-jailed-135429803.html

Quote
SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnia's war crimes court on Friday jailed Bosnian Muslim wartime commander Sakib Mahmuljin for 10 years for failing to prevent or punish atrocities against Serb prisoners by foreign Islamists who fought in the 1990s conflict.

Hundreds of Islamist fighters, or "mujahideen", came from North Africa and the Middle East to help the mainly Muslim Bosnian government forces fight separatist Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats during the war, in which 100,000 people died.

Mahmuljin, 68, was convicted in a five-year-long trial of failing to prevent or punish killings and inhumane treatment of Serb prisoners of war, some of whom were wounded or ill, and some Serb civilians, the Sarajevo court said.

In its verdict, the court said it determined that foreign Islamists murdered 53 Serb prisoners of war from July to October 1995, towards the end of the war. During this period, they tortured some prisoners and decapitated one of them, it said.

But who initiated violence?

Quote
The war erupted when Bosnian Serbs, rejecting the proclamation of independence of Bosnia from Serbian-led federal Yugoslavia, attacked cities and villages across the country in a bid to carve out territory for an exclusive Serb state.

If Bosnia were True Left, the mujahideen would receive awards, while Mahmuljin would be asked why he did not actively participate in the Ahimsa himself.

The problems continue because Bosnia continues to lack the stomach to wage total war on Serbs:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/international-official-bosnian-serbs-seek-005847700.html

Quote
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The top international official in Bosnia warned Tuesday that ethnic Serb leaders are making a concerted effort to split the country, or failing that to roll back many reforms achieved during the last 25 years, and he called for “a decisive stand” to stop any division.

Valentin Inzko told the U.N. Security Council the challenge to Bosnia’s once multiethnic society comprising Serbs, Muslims and Croats is being led by the Bosnian Serbs’ top politician, Milorad Dodik, who is the Serb member of the country’s three-member presidency.

He said the Serbs' campaign “could have political and security implications not only for the country, but also the region, and the rest of Europe.”

In what he said is likely his last briefing to the council after 12 years as the international community's “high representative” in Bosnia, Inzko strongly criticized what he called “the destructive long-term policy” of authorities in the Serb region, known as Republika Srpska.

The region's National Assembly adopted a measure in March that leaves open the option “for the so-called `peaceful dissolution’ of the country,” Inzko said. In April, leaders of Republika Srpska’s governing coalition parties met and Dodik announced the formation of negotiating teams, making clear the region “reserves the right to finally decide on its future status.”

The Bosnia war — the worst carnage in Europe since World War II — was fueled by the Bosnian Serbs’ 1992 declaration of their own state within Bosnia, and their separatist ambitions remain strong.

Bosnia remains torn by divisions stemming from the 1992-95 war among Serbs, Croats and Muslims during the breakup of Yugoslavia. A U.S.-brokered peace deal signed in 1995 in Dayton, Ohio, divided Bosnia into a federation composed of two autonomous regions — Republika Srpska for Bosnian Serbs and one for Muslims and Croats.
...
Inzko warned that even if a breakup is prevented, the Serbs' aim is “a perpetually dysfunctional” country. That is already happening “in the near-paralysis of the highest institutions ... including the presidency, the Council of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly,” he said.

As should be boringly obvious by now:

Quote
The divisions within Bosnia also reflect a mounting conflict between the West [Atlanticism] and Russia over the future of the Balkans. While the West [Atlanticism] wishes to see the still-volatile region reform and eventually join the EU and NATO, Russia has used its historic ties with Serbs to undermine this idea.

Serbia on Sunday honored 2019 Nobel Literature Prize winner Peter Handke, who is known for his apologist views over Serbia’s nationalist policies and Serb war crimes during the 1990s wars in the Balkans.

The Austrian novelist and screenwriter received a state decoration from Serbia President Aleksandar Vucic, a former ultranationalist who now says he wants his country to join the European Union. On Friday, Handke also received honors from Bosnian Serbs.

“Thank you for everything you have done for Serbia,” Vucic said. “Serbia is showing gratitude to its friend with this (decoration).”

The RTS television said Handke was awarded for “special contribution in representing Serbia and its citizens in the area of public and cultural activities and for personal persistence in uncompromising responsibility toward the truth.”

Handke is adored by Serbs for support during the wars of the 1990s’ and the era of late strongman Slobodan Milosevic when Serbs were widely blamed for fomenting the conflict that killed more than 100,000 people. Handke is considered persona non grata in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, and in Kosovo, a former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008.

When do we bomb Serbia again?

A small success:

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnian authorities on Saturday demolished a Serbian Orthodox church that was illegally built on land owned by a Bosniak woman, a move that comes after a 20-year legal battle that saw the case reach the European Court of Human Rights.

Workers and construction machinery arrived at Fata Orlovic's yard in the village of Konjevic Polje early Saturday. Using a crane, they brought down the white-colored church and its tower bell.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled in October 2019 that authorities must remove the church and pay damages to the Orlovic family totaling 31,000 euros ($36,500).

The church was built shortly after Orlovic and her family were expelled from the village, 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of Srebrenica during the 1992-95 Bosnian War. The family are Bosniaks, who are mostly Muslim, and the village was taken by Bosnian Serbs, who are mainly Orthodox Christians.

“Thank God we finally saw this happen,” said Orlovic, who is in her late 70s. “I am exhausted after 20 years."

“Now, finally, I can sit down and have a cup of coffee in my yard without being chased out. I have never done anything wrong to them,” she added.

Orlovic's husband was among some 8,000 Bosniak men and boys murdered by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica in 1995, the worst carnage of the ethnic conflict. The Srebrenica massacre has been acknowledged internationally as Europe's only genocide since World War II.

Upon returning to her village after the war, Orlovic's demands that the church be removed were ignored. In 2000, she launched legal proceedings to force the authorities of Republika Srpska, the name of the postwar Serb-run entity in Bosnia, to comply.

But it's not over yet:

Local authorities have said they will rebuild the Orthodox church at the entrance to the village.

The entire Serbian Orthodox Church (I'm not talking about a building, I'm talking about the institution and those who populate it) must be destroyed!

Nice meme! Did you create it yourself?

 I was born in the 21st century, so I have no memory of the pre 9/11 world. However, much of the counterculture stuff I was exposed to during my childhood via television/video games did resonate with me. I always felt like I "belonged" to that era tbh. I could also sense that things were getting worse (e.g. economy) by picking up the bits and pieces of information I heard on the news, even if I couldn't fully comprehend it.
