Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has been convicted of genocide and war crimes in the 1992-95 Bosnian war, and sentenced to 40 years in jail.

UN judges in The Hague found him guilty of 10 of 11 charges, including genocide over the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

I remember watching the NATO airstrikes on TV as a child. Glad to see some justice being served at last.

Good example of what can happen when Muslims are seen as the cause of all the problems in a country...

Remember that when people start making out Muslims as the enemy with the modern situation with Islamism.

Were NATO not also guilty of that to some degree?

The NATO bombing campaign has remained controversial, as it did not gain the approval of the UN Security Council and because it caused at least 488 Yugoslav civilian deaths,[72] including substantial numbers of Kosovar refugees.[

Karadzic wanted to ethnically cleanse the country and get rid of a race. Not sure if NATO had the same aims.

As the NATO bombing incidents weren't cleared ie illegal shouldn't they also face justice then?

Bosnian Muslims named their children after Tony Blair. Funny that now he's hated by Muslims for invading Iraq.

Tony Blair wasn't Prime Minister during the Bosnian War, or even Labour party leader until late on in it. Maybe you're mixing Bosnia up with Kosovo?

Glad to see justice served, but hasn't stopped the international community endorsing the partitionist racist state won by Karadzic's genocide.

The NATO bombings in Kosovo and Bosnia took place 4 years apart from each other. How does the legal justification for intervening in the Kosovo War have anything to do with this?
