That's one less genocidal murderer on the planet

So Slobodan Milosevic is dead. It couldn’t happen to a nicer genocidal butcher. Long may he rot. Nice though it would have been to see the trial concluded and justice done, in reality he was likely to have been acquitted of many offences owing to the sheer complexity of the charges and the difficulty in successfully pinning them to him. Still, only Serbian nationalists and Harold Pinter will be mourning today*.

* Pinter is a member of the International Committee to Defend Slobodan Milosevic, which maintains that Milosevic is innocent of all charges and should be released. For more information, read this great piece by Johann Hari.

Not to be too critical, however, as I read of criminal sentencing in Europe, even if convicted, I would have expected this Bastard to only have gotten about 10-15 years in prison anyway. Hell, today Hitler, Goering, and Himmler would have probably been eligible for parole in a few years. There is a place for the Death Penalty, and I think Srebrenica is certainly one of them. Couldn't be happier the a**hole is gone.

Why is Harold Pinter such a loon, an why is he held in such high regard by the left

Yet another testament to the fecklessness of the UN.
