    Good news. Overdue but good.
    Psychos with uniforms need to know justice can be difficult to escape.

    Big Payday for Chief of Serbian Police

    On a serious note, it's good news if they have caught Mladic - the sooner he's in The Hague and on trial alongside his old pal Karadzic, the better.

    For those who've forgotten about him or have never heard of him, here's a little reminder:

    BBC NEWS | Europe | Profile: Ratko Mladic
    Yes he knew what he was ordering, but Croat forces were as despicable in their murderous slaying in revenge as soldiers surrendered and were fleeing back over the border. The world is grey. The real evil is greed. That is what the current Serb administration is concerned about.

    Even philosophers will praise war as ennobling mankind, forgetting the Greek who said: 'War is bad in that it begets more evil than it kills.'

    horray!

    Absolutely delighted. How long it took Serbia to hand over Mladic is irrelivent now. He is captive and will pay for his crimes hopefully; that is all that really matters.

    Karadic hid for years disguised as Papa Smurf. What cartoon character persona did Mladic adopt I wonder?

    Were Croats or Kosovans to do that they would have a readily citable "juris[im]prudence". After all, I'm sure this man is responsible for more death's then Ben Laden.

    Disagree. he should be kept alive for as long as possible. And tortured. Daily. Hourly if they can figure out a way to do so. While keeping him alive. There is nothing too depraved that they can inflict on him as far as I am concerned.

    There is one of two possible circumstances here. either the Serbian people and their representative government agreed with the activities of Ratko Mladic or they did not. If the former then they should never have handed him over, if the latter then they should have placed him on trial themselves or handed him over earlier to the international court. That they chose to hang on to him until it was of greatest benefit to them to ship him abroad reminds me of the sort behaviour of a failed or dysfunctional states that litter the world, placing the well being of it's citizenry secondary to that of foreign interests.

    You mean like a comparison with the lowly Paki's and their ability to over look Osama Bin Laden living next door to their military HQ? Now that would be really racist!

    No, I have never been to Serbia. You mean decent but cowardly or self deceitful people.

    Em no, far too simplistic. What may have happened is that there is still a significant minority of views in Serbia which see Mladic as somewhat of a hero. However, the government may have slowly noticed a sea-change in attitude, perhaps a denudation in the amount of overtly nationalistic opinion which commended his actions, thus surrendering him at this stage would have cost the least amount of social and political turmoil. Admittedly not the most noble of decisions, but since they could have monitored and controlled his movements in the meantime, not the worst case scenario.

    They may have also timed it with what would be most poltically advantageous internationally. Allowing them to call in a few favours but still not destablising their country at the same time. It may sound selfish and pragmatic, but I'm sure they had their reasons.

    That pretty much sums it up. Boris Tadic and his FM Vuk Jeremic are two shrewed political characters and will rightly use Mladic's arrest as leverage over EU acession talks, Kosovo and Bosnia. Hadzic, the last big fish will be caught at the most opportune time. Tadic has skilfully played this. You can expect to see big concessions heading Belgrade's way. The place to watch is Kosovo.
