The Exoneration of Milosevic: the ICTY’s Surprise Ruling

by Andy Wilcoxson, via CounterPunch

The Tribunal’s determination that Slobodan Milosevic was not part of a joint criminal enterprise, and that on the contrary he “condemned ethnic cleansing”[16] is of tremendous significance because he got blamed for all of the bloodshed in Bosnia, and harsh economic sanctions were imposed on Serbia as a result.  Wrongfully accusing Milosevic ranks right up there with invading Iraq only to find that there weren’t any weapons of mass destruction after all.

Slobodan Milosevic was vilified by the entire western press corps and virtually every politician in every NATO country.  They called him “the Butcher of the Balkans.”  They compared him to Hitler and accused him of genocide.  They demonized him and made him out to be a bloodthirsty monster, and they used that false image to justify not only economic sanctions against Serbia, but also the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia and the Kosovo war.

Slobodan Milosevic had to spend the last five years of his life in prison defending himself and Serbia from bogus war crimes allegations over a war that they now admit he was trying to stop.  The most serious charges that Milosevic faced, including the charge of genocide, were all in relation to Bosnia.  Now, ten years after his death, they admit that he wasn’t guilty after all – oops.
