The arrest of Bosnian-Serb military leader Ratko Mladic last week marked the end of a 16-year manhunt and he is now to stand trial on charges of crimes against humanity and genocide. But questions remain as to how he was able to remain at large for so lon

After Mladic faces trial and probable conviction, the country still has many others to root out that did and do support his murderous intent. They need to find options to shore up the function of government, while implementing a plan of healthy internal education. These countries have thrived on hate filled messages and as with all governments in turmoil, poor intermediate government.

So what it could mean for Serbia's future is litigation possibly into the billions if what comes out of the trials supports the claims from family members of those murdered, killed, disabled veterans,etc. In which case the story is far from over.

In the end, greater transparency is better than hidden actions...Politicians/leaders bear a responsibility for the behavior of their followers.

Mladic was allowed his freedom all these years. He has been, for all that time, unfinished business that has been part of what has kept the Serbs in a somewhat outcast state, politically speaking.

Serbia wants to come in out of the cold, EU membership is a goal. Mladic is a sacrificial pawn in this chess game. He is old and ill. I suspect he may well have agreed to this move, because, when all is said and done, he is a loyal Serb.

In almost any other man, I could respect such an act, but his apparent crimes put him beyond such consideration. His first appearance at The Hague show him to be totally unrepentant for his actions. I just hope that this does not end up as a showcase trial, but a true exposition of the facts.
