Ari Rusila, a Finnish freelancer, wrote yesterday interesting article over at Ari Rusila’s Balkanblog, talking about what is called in the West “the Srebrenica massacre” (July 1995) and the typical Western anti-Serb propaganda. Here is a short excerpt, but it’s worth reading the whole thing:
How could an allegation of the execution of 8,000 individuals be made and then widely accepted if the only hard evidence in The Hague Tribunal’s possession that points to summary execution involves the remains of 442 persons that were found with blindfolds and ligatures? Indeed, where are the bodies to support the claim of 8,000 execution victims?
Of course they (Hague Tribunal, Western mainstream media) had never proved that 8,000 Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims), mainly men, were killed by units of the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) under the command of General Ratko Mladić. Why? Because they were almost all soldiers killed in combat.
Oh, just one thing. What Western mainstream media forgets to mention is the first “Srebrenica massacre” that took place between 1992 and July, 1995, where more than 2,300 Serb civilians (women and children mainly) were killed. Typical anti-Serb propaganda.
