Traitorous ZOG puppets in the Serb government have sold
this European hero out to the UN to secure entry to the EU.
No doubt Comrade Mladic will die 'mysteriously' during his trial at the
Hague like other Serbs accused of being on the losing side, sorry, of
any Israeli war criminals currently on the UN war crimes tribunal's
wanted list we wonder?
Ratko Mladic Appears In Serbian War Court
The world's most wanted war crimes
suspect Ratko Mladic - wanted over the massacre of some 8,000 Bosnian
Muslims in 1995 - has appeared before a Serbian court.
Mladic was arrested earlier today at
a relative's home in the tiny village of Lazarevo in Vojvodina, a
northern province of Serbia after 16 years in hiding.

The now 68-year-old was reportedly
using the assumed name Milorad Komodic when he was detained - an
anagram of his true identity.
He will now be extradited to the UN
war crimes tribunal in The Hague, where he faces life imprisonment if
convicted. That process could take up to a week.
Confirming the arrest, Serbia's
president Boris Tadic said it marked the end of a very difficult
chapter in his country's history.
He said: "Today we close one chapter
of our recent history that will bring us one step closer to full
reconciliation in the region.
"I believe that all countries must
be responsible for closing their own chapters.
"All crimes have to be fully
investigated and all war criminals must face justice.
"We have ended a difficult period of
our history and removed the stain from the face of Serbia and the
members of our nation wherever they live."
Mladic is accused of masterminding
the 44-month siege of Sarajevo that left 10,000 people dead in 1995.
The former general is also suspected
of Europe's worst massacre since WWII, when his troops slaughtered
8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica.
War crimes tribunal judge Fouad Riad
said during Mladic's 1995 indictment in absentia that the court had
seen evidence of "unimaginable savagery: thousands of men executed and
buried in mass graves, hundreds of men buried alive, men and women
mutilated and slaughtered (and) children killed before their mothers'
"These are truly scenes from hell,
written on the darkest pages of human history," he said.
Mladic had been the most prominent
Bosnian war crimes suspect still at large after the arrest of Radovan
Karadzic in 2008.
Sky's Europe correspondent Alex
Rossi said the question in many people's minds would be why it had
taken so long to arrest Mladic - who went on the run in the mid-1990s.
"He has managed to evade capture for
16 years. Serbia, where he was arrested, is not a large place," Rossi
"How did he hide? Who was sponsoring
him? Who was helping him? Where parts of the state's apparatus
shielding him from justice?
"Those questions remain unanswered
but nevertheless this is a major step from the Serbian government in
Speaking at the G8 Summit in
Deauville, France, Prime Minister David Cameron said the crimes Mladic
is alleged to have carried out must not be forgotten.
"He is accused of the most appalling
war crimes - both in terms of what happened not only in Srebrenica but
also in Sarajevo."
He added: "There's a very good
reason why the long arm of the international law has been looking for
this man for such a long time."
President Barack Obama, at the same
summit, applauded Serbia's leader for his "determined efforts" to
ensure Mladic faces justice.
"Fifteen years ago, Ratko Mladic
ordered the systematic execution of some 8,000 unarmed men and boys in
Srebrencia. Today, he is behind bars," he said in a written statement.
"While we will never be able to
bring back those who were murdered, Mladic will now have to answer to
his victims, and the world, in a court of law.
"May the families of Mladic's victims find some solace in today's
arrest, and may this deepen the ties among the people of the region,"
British Defence Secretary Liam Fox
added: "It is clearly one that has to be welcomed.
"It gives the people of Serbia a
chance to close, or at least begin to close, a very unhappy chapter in
"It's a reminder to all those who
fly in the face of international justice that sooner or later they will
be brought to book for their crimes."
