today is 25 years ago, the bosnian-serb army took Srebrenica. The city was declared a safe zone by the UN, but the Dutch battalion that was to protect the civilian population surrendered enclave to general Ratko remembrance of the massacre without a struggle.
the united nations grip rather not enter then the serbs sent the women with the bus to the regjeringskontrollert area and in the course of the next few days executed more than 8,000 men and boys because they had muslim names.Bad people can make good art Comment
the Operation contributed to the fact that the serbs reached an important krigsmål: A lasting change of the demographic balance in Eastern Bosnia. The muslim population was driven out or annihilated, and the survivors have not returned to where their relatives were raped and killed.
Srebrenica was basically a simple story about the genocide in Europe and verdenssamfunnets deceit. But the way I remember it was the war in Bosnia is anything but simple.
Was really the bosnian serbs as murderous as the muslims claimed, or could it be that some of the massacres in Sarajevo was due to the grenades shot from the regjeringssiden? The un fredsmegler Thorvald Stoltenberg believed that the world was against the serbs, and wrote that "the muslim government forces had not defended Srebrenica as one had expected".
In Norway, Bosnia conveyed through the glasses, not least because the norwegians were key on the FN-page. Thus appeared to Bosnia as an unfathomable chaos in which people with weird last name, committed atrocities against each other.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

That the united nations was itself a party to the conflict, and had interest of the to tell that all was just as bad and lying to cover up his own role, was something that apparently occurred to few Norwegian journalists – with a few important exceptions such as NTBs utenriksredaksjon.No stuffy jentegutt!

First under Kofi annan's leadership several years later took the world settlement with its own role during the genocide. Annan's Srebrenica report, joining the Un people not to realize the importance of the Serbian krigsmålene and the Security council to declare "safe zones" without the will to put power behind the words.
"Cardinal-the lesson of Srebrenica is that a deliberate and systematic attempt to terrorize, expel or murder an entire people must meet, in particular, with all the necessary funds and with the political will to implement them until the end".Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

President Slobodan Miloševićs folkemorderiske politics was not stopped at the negotiating table, but on the battlefield – first in Bosnia and then a few years later in Kosovo, mainly because the united STATES put the foot down.
the Un peace negotiations helped to bring the serb leaders legitimacy and time, and was, in reality, the "appeasement" – appeasement – which gave the strongest party the opportunity to change the reality on the ground. Dialogue is a poor policy instrument and neutrality the wrong attitude in a situation where one party seeks to eradicate the other.
safe say that Bosnia-generation insights and moral pathos seems to daterte in the day.

Democracy is in retreat the world over. The notion of an international community able to cope with the crimes that China's imprisonment of the uighurs, Burmese persecution of rohingyaene and the terrorist bombing of civilians in Syria seems out of date.
And although the genocide in Srebrenica has been mapped in detail by Straffetribunalet for The former Yugoslavia, the story is still unclear. "It was revenge, not genocide", said the austrian writer Peter Handke. And nobel peace prize winner from 2019 must know what he is talking about?
I started to work for a human rights organization while the war in Bosnia raged, and I went to see the conflict as an unfathomable chaos to see on Srebrenica as the story of a notified murder. Few events have made a greater impression on me.
a Year after the massacre I met survivors from the safe zone and traveled through the empty villages with ruined mosques in the area around Srebrenica. Spøkelsesland.
best I remember, however, a scene in which a Serbian journalist filmed from the massacre. He traveled with the soldiers to document the Mladićs triumph, and the footage was later evidence in rettsoppgjøret in the Hague.
Are you afraid? ask the journalist an older muslim man. In a few moments, looking the man up and answer: How can I not be afraid?
the Man was executed a short time afterwards, but the question hangs again after him. Probably because I feel that he asks me to put myself in his situation.White boys are playing the best Comment You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
