There's no such thing as a fair trial before the Hague, the verdict has been rendered before the charges are announced. And people wonder why we insist on sticking with our Legal system, even if it isn't perfect it's a lot better than the alternative.
You know, I've had this debate with a couple of my colleagues and I have said that if I could try the Milosevic case in small town America, where a majority of people don't know the difference between Serbia and Siberia, I could win. Given the strict evidentiary standards in our justice system, I agree with you 100%.
Unlike the Hague, where hearsay, piled upon hearsay seems to be the norm, along with total speculation, surmise and outright lies.
