Bosnia Gets An Apology

Finally:

SARAJEVO (AFP) – The president of the rump Yugoslavia, now renamed Serbia and Montenegro, apologised for the “evil” his country had caused during Bosnia’s war of independence and asked for forgiveness.
“I want to use this opportunity to apologise for any evil or disaster that anyone from Serbia and Montenegro caused to anyone in Bosnia-Hercegovina,” President Svetozar Marovic said.

“There was injustice, evil, suffering and murder. There were things … one can’t imagine people doing,” Marovic said of the war.

This is a good time to thank President Clinton, too. He waited too long, but he did finally act to put a stop to it.
No thanks whatever to the UN. It refused to see, refused to act, and opposed what was finally done.
No thanks to the Republican Congress, either, especically Trent Lott, Don Nickles, and Tom DeLay. They blamed the atrocities on America, undermined the war effort, whined that we couldn’t win, and pressured Clinton to appease a fascist dictator. They should be ashamed of themselves, and they ought to apologize too. Now would be a good time since the Serbs have finally done it.
