NOTE: Serbia has arrested accused mass murderer Radovan Karadzic. The New York Times reports: "The arrest was hailed by western diplomats as proof of Serbia’s determination to link itself to the west and put the virulent nationalism of the past behind it. It has particular resonance because the new coalition government is the result of an alliance between the Democrats of President Boris Tadic and the Socialist Party of former Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic, which fought a war against the west in the 1990s, but has now vowed to bring Serbia back into the western fold." Yet another devastating blow for Putin's Russia! Welcome Serbia, the community of civilized nations. You leave Russia behind in the wilds of barbarism. Let's not forget, by any means, that Russia has been aggressively providing aid and comfort to these maniacs for years now, flouting the civilized world at ever turn as usual.
