Can Justice reappraise genocide?
No. Or may be…
The nice elderly gentleman, looking at the camera, was one of the masterminds of a war.
The war outgrew a weird and dangerous nationalism.
The Serbian Empire
The pictures were taken in front of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Karadžić was one of the politicians of the days at the end of the last century. Not a day without a message from him or his horror.
He, the doctor and poet, was an esthete in murder.
Later he was called a shame for Bosnia.
The evil born on the Kosovo Polje, later the hopes of a whole international community died in sniper fire in Sarajevo, in CC in Srebrenica and in the forests of Bosnia. Thousands are still missing, people, neighbors, who simply disappeared from one minute to the next.
Radovan Karadžić, who should have known better, took the bloody scepter in hand. Later, after the whole world was looking for him, he hid behind the ingenious mask of a ghost healer with a long beard and made victims to offenders and himself to a victim of time.
He dived in the anonymous mass of offenders below.
Karadžić was one of the most brutal killers who could produce nationalism and hatred. He personally set up concentration camps in Europe, where Muslim men were kept as animals. Before they were killed then.
Thousands of people lost their lives and today, even though the war was waged in the heart of Europe, it is almost forgotten.
Karadžić has no conscience or knows as a trained psychiatrist not where he can find this. He speaks, if at all, in the role of a beloved former emperor who felt cheated out of his kingdom. One can only be astonished how he managed to submerge for 13 years, only behind ugly glasses and and a beard, which would have made a druid all honor.
In this time he forgot all about the “Directive 7” the ethnic cleansing that he presented in Bosnia Herzegovina together with his accomplice Ratko Mladić to the then shocked world in the early 1990s.
Dr. Dabić, as he called himself during those Belgrade times, was a master at hiding. In the end, he knew his own story only incomplete, as process observers report.
Non-medical practitioner Dabić had not only a second wife in his diving station in Belgrade, but also an incredibly cynical sense of humor, who help him to serve the 40 years of his verdict, the UN court gave him last year.
