#Trump or #Milosevic, Who’s More Dangerous?
By, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey
They are not merely the standard bearers of an appeal to divisiveness, hate but both Trump and before Milosevic have been enablers of extremist nationalists, fascists. —

To commemorate the inception of the 1992 siege of Sarajevo that began today & lasted through February 29, 1996, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey published via Huffington Post –
“Diplomatic Bluff to Break Longest Modern Siege.” As an historical content, several links are included of his interviews from AP Archives, as well as original YouTube Video: “U2 & L. Pavarotti/Miss Sarajevo.”
Sarajevo remains true to its core even as both current peace & memory of recent conflict remind of what was. The future has confirmed that Sarajevo was resisting the baser instincts & the ideologies or theologies such claim today. — Read More —

If the judgment of Radovan Karadzic, “President of Republika Srpska,” will have precedent, then the urgent question is not about the culpability of an individual but to what degree such has effect on the consequences of the crime for which convicted, the remedies available to victims, & indeed the very capacity of the Joint Criminal Enterprise to survive & perpetuate beyond the assignment of guilt for its leader(s). –MORE–

Presumably celebrating New Year in event at United Nations, the current President of the UN General Assembly apparently was responsible for the playing of an ultra-nationalist militaristic march, “March on Drina,” (or “March upon the River Drina” in English). This militaristic song was employed as the anthem by Serb forces who committed genocide in Srebrenica (which is on the Drina River) as well as a campaign of aggression and ethnic cleansing through much of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

An overwhelming number of Bosnian/Herzegovinian organizations as well as individuals have reacted, many with letters of formal complaint to the UN Secretary General labeling the actions of former Serbian Foreign Minister and current UNGA President Vuk Jeremic as promoting a fascist, insulting song that adorned genocide over the last century, and less than 20 years earlier in the Drina valley towns of Zepa, Gorazde, Visegrad and many others, as well as Srebrenica.  However, I would start with a simpler question: In the building of peace, the United Nations, why would someone opt for a militaristic march to mark any holiday, but especially New Year’s? Did Mr. Jeremic’s actions also insult Orthodox Christianity by associating this great religion’s celebration of New Year (on January 14) with such a militaristic and nationalistic song? Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Agnostics, Atheists and persons of other religious identities within the framework of the United Nations and as a matter of goodwill have made it habit of celebrating with their fellow global citizens and diplomats each other’s holidays. Transforming a New Year’s event into one that celebrates militarism in the least and genocide/aggression at worst undermines a longstanding tradition of mutual respect.

From Diplomatically Incorrect: Al Jazeera Inside Story “WILL RATKO MLADIC ‘S TRIAL DELIVER JUSTICE?”
TV Link & commentary from interview with Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey: “The Prosecutor, I think has done a good job of speaking of really a state-sponsored plan that continues to be executed today, because as Mladic goes on trial, refugees who were originally from Srebrenica now have been ethnically cleansed, not only can’t go back, they can’t even vote in elections for next local council & mayor.”

Blog Report: CHARLES TAYLOR – SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC, By Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey
It was about plundering natural resources of a neighboring country & “bling” with armed “rebels”. Actions for which Taylor was convicted: murder, rape, sexual slavery, recruitment of child soldiers, enslavement & other crimes bear significant similarity to  charges against Milosevic, generally defined as war crimes & crimes against humanity prosecuted by Sir Geoffrey Nice on behalf of the ICTY. –More–
