http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/06/01-8 It's a comparison of the Serbian capture of Ratko Mladic vs. the US capture of Osama bin Laden. What do you think of the author's conclusions? Be gentle, I'm a nice person. lol

Oh you naughty girl! I am not answering as someone would send me nasty pm's and make rude responses. I will not let you trick me into answering this question. I will keep my thoughts to myself and not be led astray. Let the political mylotter's answer you. You are in a roll today with three discussions

I am not brave unless my family or good friends are attacked and then I turn into a rotweiler I will just say that the artic - no - don't tempt me - I will not finish this sentence. If you need help then shout and I will come running with a machete in one hand and some rum in the other

interesting read to say the least. as much as there are comparisons, one cannot overlook how differently both countries handled these high-profile arrests.

They both are/was criminals and thus they deserve what they get! Sometimes it come as relief to criminal when he is being killed fast, and are not forced to sit in courts and hear charges from all sides.

Ignorance of evil- my back side! bin Laden is GLOBAL threat this other guy is hardly that. It would seem that the author had to pull from the sky to find Mladic. Evil is evil no matter how the author wants to reduce it to. And it is sort of silly how the author finds these two who are so very different. One who couldn't even live in his own country. The evil mind is a vice to be certain.

Maybe this discussion is too serious for me? I respond because I know you are nice for your responders. There is a great difference between Milosevic, Karadzic, Mladic, etc, and Bin Laden : the first were followed by the population of their country and their crimes are in fact the crimes of a nation in my opinion. They were not really hidden and could have been arrested since years : I don't know if it is true, but I have heard than in the 90's UN forces had received orders to not arrest them. Today Serbs want Euro and PayPal and are arresting Mladic, but killing Mladic like Bin Laden would have certainly created a small revolution in Serbia and stopped all the process. You cannot put on the same level Mladic and Bin Laden like it is done in this article. Bin Laden was not a war criminal acclaimed and seen like a hero by all a country, but a terrorist who could not live in his own country.
