American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina

I need to give a quick shout-out to a worth institution in Bosnia, and one which serves an invaluable function in forging deeper cultural and intellectual ties between two secular, multiethnic democracies--Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the United States of America:

American University in Bosnia

PS I had meant to research how to post .pdf files in Blogger, as I have a contact at the University who wanted me to pass it along if possible. However, my family has had a crisis and that has taken up all my time and attention. If anyone knows how to do so, I still have the file and would love to post it, I just lack the time and energy to look it up. In the meantime, I want to at least publicize the University itself.

Bloggers wonder: does human life have a price?

Here's a story that Jared Israel, and the whole "Committee to Defend Slobodan Milosevic" crowd probably won't be publicizing any time soon:

Homophobic US General Blames Srebrenica on Gay Dutch Soldiers

OK, my headline is a bit hyperbolic, but not by much:

Retired general: Gays made Dutch weak in Bosnia

Regarding the Srebrenica Genocide; there are many things for which we can hold the Dutch military at fault, but allowing gay Dutch citizens to serve their country in the military is not one of them.

Open Letter on the Arrest of Ejup Ganic from Professor Francis A. Boyle

The arrest of Ejup Ganic by the British government is all political. TheBritish have always detested and hated Ganic because he was the oneBosnian war-time leader who had the guts to stand up against thempublicly, so this is now the British payback against Ganic, Bosnia andthe Bosnians. Indeed, it was Ganic who personally helped me get thelegal authorization from President Izetbegovic to sue Britain at theWorld Court for aiding and abetting genocide against Bosnia, asexplained in the attached Note. This British persecution of Ejup Ganicis simply a continuation of the genocidal policies that PerfidiousAlbion has always pursued against Bosnia and the Bosnians.
