 HANDS OFF THE SERBS!

Against all probability, the Serbs cooperated with 'the Croats' (and 'the Muslims') who tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of their kin, precisely because they did not regard them as 'the Croats' and 'the Muslims', even though they were as much to blame as 'the Germans' whom we accuse of equally monstrous behaviour.

 EU Pressures Serbs To Arrest Fugitive, Confusion Swirls As Dutch Say Mladic Is Sick, Negotiating Surrender - CBS News
Dutch Foreign Minister Ben Bot told parliament Thursday that Bosnian Serb war crimes fugitive Ratko Mladic is sick and is "negotiating with his entourage" on a surrender.

Mladic, a former Bosnian Serb commander, has been indicted on genocide charges for allegedly orchestrating the massacre of some 8,000 Muslims in the U.N. enclave of Srebrenica in 1995, Europe's worst carnage since World War II and the worst crime of Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
