Reading this is a bad idea

Justice for the victims of genocide seems unimportant compared to political concerns. I'm talking about Srebrenica, where over 8,000 men and boys between 60 and early teens, some younger, were massacred as they tried to evacuate the city (a column of refugees traversed a road and the Serbs used artillery and anti-air guns to massacre them). Others were lured into "surrendering" and bussed to mass execution sites (blindfolded and bound on the way as to ensure no effective resistence to the final moment).

The Serbian government has been cleared, legally, of all involvement with the genocidal actions of its armies.

It seems justice only comes to those with the power to enforce it. Is this news anything new?
