More Myth than Massacre at Srebrenica - by Stephen Lendman

Headlines explaining former Serbian General Ratko Mladic's May 27 arrest allege his 1995 responsibility for massacring 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica. True or false is at issue. More on that below.

Meanwhile, inflammatory accounts already convicted him by accusation, including New York Times writers Dan Bilefsky and Doreen Carvajal headlining, "Serbia Says Jailed Mladic Will Face War Crimes Trial," saying:

Arresting him "signal(ed) Serbia's intention of finally escaping the isolation it brought on itself during the Balkan wars," ones Western media, including The Times, consistently misreported on throughout the 1990s, culminating in NATO's 1999 war of aggression, falsely called humanitarian intervention.

Inflating Srebrenica deaths to "10,000....including 3,500 children," Bilefsky and Carvajal called the alleged massacre "the worst ethnically motivated mass murder on the European continent since World War II," Mladic to stand trial for "war crimes...."

Other accounts were similar, including Reuters headlining, "Instant view: West hails news of Mladic arrest in Serbia," quoting "sources" like UK Defense Secretary Liam Fox saying: 

"It's clearly (an arrest) to be welcomed....It's a reminder to all those who fly in the face of international justice that sooner or later they will be brought to book for their crimes."

He's right, hopefully. Sooner or later real war criminals like American, Israeli and UK ones may have to answer for numerous crimes of war and against humanity, slaughtering millions for power and profit.
