Breaking news: Serbia arrests war crimes indictee Zupljanin

From the Southeast Europe Times

Hopefully more news will become available soon. In the meantime, here's to hoping that Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic are having a miserable, nerve-racking day.

Thanks, Anthony. I will check that out.

You will find it interesting as he discusses many of the issues you discuss here regarding partition and the differences between Kosovo and Bosnia.

One other thing on partition. I am not quite as negative about partition as you are, but recognize that you never can get the border perfect. Case in point, in vacation, we drove past the town in Denmark where one of my wife's great grandmothers was born. The lady was German, yet the town is now Danish. The town was a German town in what is now known as "South Jutland" but which the Germans called "North Schweslig." In 1920, it voted to stay part of Germany, but was given to Denmark as it was surrounded by territory that voted to join Denmark.

Yeah, Karadzic and Mladic must be very worried. I could bet they are somewhere around Belgrade. Whoever knows them should report them... there is a $5 million reward issued by the US government (plus full identity and relocation protection) for informants.

Zupljanin originally lied about his identity, but they confirmed its him via DNA.
