  Ante Gotovina   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
How the prosecutors can conclude that Ante had ‘overall command responsibility’; for the operation, when the facts are clear that he himself was commanded by Zagreb, which in turn was directed and supported by US agencies, who are remaining silent about their involvement, is suspicious in itself.
Ante Gotovina offered himself as a witness, but despite being aware of these facts, the prosecution is determined that he stands trial.
Ante Gotovina, is an innocent man and his unjust indictment must be immediately withdrawn, his reputation re-instated, and his family be left to continue their lives in peace.

 The Token Defendant - by Nebojsa Malic
It was, however, a booster to the foundering Inquisition, whose main effort to construct a narrative of the 1990s Balkans wars, with Serbs as the chief culprits, has been frustrated both by the Milosevic trial and the inability to capture the leaders of Bosnian Serbs, Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic.
Gotovina's supporters organized protest rallies this weekend, ranging from several hundred in Zagreb and Croat-inhabited portions of Bosnia, to tens of thousands in Split.
The Inquisition officially charges Gotovina with command responsibility in the murder of some 150 civilians, wanton destruction of property, and the organized persecution of hundreds of thousands of Serbs driven from Croatia in the summer of 1995.

A retired Croatian army general, Gotovina was indicted by the U.N. tribunal in connection with the killings of at least 150 Serbs by troops under his command and for the expulsion of about 150,000 others during Croatia's 1991-95 war.

 Ante Gotovina - HEROJ!
Gotovina's troops liberated large swaths of Croatian territory that were brutally occupied by Serb paramilitaries; he also saved tens of thousands of besieged Muslim refugees from being slaughtered in northwestern Bosnia.
Gotovina's forces delivered a decisive blow to Slobodan Milosevic's genocidal project of an ethnically pure “Great Serbia,” which butchered over 250,000 people (many of whom were the elderly, women and children) and drove nearly 2 million from their homes.
The Gotovina case has repercussions that are much larger than the fate of one man. Croatia will be branded in the eyes of the international community as a nation based on ethnic cleansing and mass murder.

 US Ambassador John Bolton - Free General Ante Gotovina. The CWA is the premier and most influential organization and ...
General Gotovina's leadership of Operation Storm, the 1995 Croatian lightening military offensive, not only restored Croatia's territorial integrity and recaptured territory that had been conquered and ethnically cleansed by rebel Serbs, it also saved tens of thousands of besieged Bosnian Muslim refugees in the enclave of Bihac in northwestern Bosnia.
The Gotovina indictment, by falsely claiming that Operation Storm sought to deliberately ethnically cleanse 150,000 ethnic Serbs from Croatia, provides Serbian revanchists with the moral and legal basis to reclaim large swaths of Croatian territory in the future.
If General Gotovina is sent to The Hague, where he will be certainly found guilty under the trumped up and bogus charges of "command responsibility," it will result in a great victory for Milosevic's allies and the supporters of a Great Serb empire from the Danube to the Adriatic.
