    Hopefully justice will be served. 8000 mass murders have been attributed to this animal.

    There was a movie a few years back - "The Hunting Party" based on a true story about a group of journos (including Sebastian Junger) who actually went looking for one of those war crime fugitives. Decent movie - starring Richard Gere - if you are interested.

    I can't believe they're going to give this guy a trial.

    Why even bother capturing him alive? They should have just "double tapped" him.

    YF: Serbia, which knew where this dude was, just as Pakistan knew about bin Laden, turned him over to the authorities as part of their campaign to be admitted to the European Union. The EU wanted a trial, so that's what Serbia gave it.

    Just trying to make a little joke, Michael.

    Makes you wonder what would have happened if Pakistan had handed OBL over to us.

    It was an open secret for years, as in I heard it talked about on CNN by terrorism experts, that the U.S. had concluded it had no satisfactory way of dealing with bin Laden alive, so he was to be dead when found. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that Pakistan said "we know where bin Laden is," and the U.S. said "don't do anything, just let us know and we'll handle it."

    Agreed, The Hague is so 1940's . They should have treated him like Arkan. Put a bullet in his head prior to trial.

    Mladic's lawyers citing poor health as a reason to avoid extradition. Unfortunately for him, the health care provided at his future home in prison is better than the vast majority of Americans get.


    A look at the cells.


    There's foosball, TV, newspapers, cooking privileges and intramural teams. Sign me up.

    Yeah, I'm sure Mladic and his thugs thought a lot about the health of the men and boys at Srebenica before they killed them in cold blood.

    Give this animal a fair trial and then if he's found guilty, put a bullet in the back of his head, dig a nice big hole somewhere in Bosnia and dump his sorry ass in it.
