I've just been looking at all the videos that you posted ...... what an emotional time for Croatia!

The video of Gotovina being arrested in the restaurant: how long ago was that?

Warmongers never take into account that people have very long memories: never forget, never forgive.

As well as the loss of life and the mental scarring, how sad that the beautiful old city of Dubrovnik was so damaged. That sort of vandalism is unforgiveable too.

But tonight justice has been seen to be done: I raise my glass to Croatia!

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

Now lets go back for a while and see how start this mess. Not war. Gotovina trial.
Yup. Its Carla Del Ponte.
Thing is that reason why he is put on trial is redicule. He was accused for overmuch bombardment of city Knin so Serbs must leave their homes.  That he was hiting civil targets. They named one young man as victim of his bombardment. One. Imagine. Now lets stay here for a moment. Croatia in 1995 didnt have guided missles. We have had usual artilery which anyone who was in military knows  that doesnt hit targets like sniper. You cant shoot with it like „dots.“  It kills everything in area of 50 meters. Sometimes 150 meters. Second missle can miss  target to even 500 meters. It depends on wind, weather and artilery itself. Then International court invented new war rule. That you can hit anything around military targets in circle of 200 meters. Now, thats nonsense because that war law doesnt exist and it was Carla Del Ponte invention.  Thats main reason why charges melted.  
Now when journalist asked  why the reporter insisted so much on the indictment of a joint criminal enterprise  Del Ponte which now work for UN on Syria problems then in next sentence said is in pension, Carla replied: "Because it is a criminal enterprise."
Imagine this. Totally disrespectfull to International court which is court of UN. He was mad because her charges are dismissed on all points.

She continued: „I am very surprised because Gotovina and Markac were convicted of first instance verdict. It was a big, big surprise, " I mean how dare you. Del Ponte what do you think why apeal exits in first place? You a lawyer you should know that.

Then she starts again: 'I hope that in the appeal proceedings from all first-instance judgment Gotovina and Markac be confirmed, " Ofcourse you hoped because you was paid to bring war criminals to justice and now when everybody see that Carla was charlatan you are surprised.  Theodor Meron, Presiding Judge International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, was also surprised that Gotovina and Markač are in jail so he order to release them instantly. How all admirals of USA army laugh on Del Ponte accusitions? He invented new war rules.
When journalist ask her how come that she didnt put head of JNA on trial for overmuch bombardment of Croatian city of Vukovar (Not to mention Gospić,Petrinja,Dubrovnik …)? She answered that there wasnt enough time to put all them in jail. Court is closing.
Now isnt that selective justice? Selective justice is worst then unjustice. City of Vukovar become ground literally. Yet no one was accused for overmuch bombardment.
She is hilarious. Its sad that people like her still works in UN if she didnt lied.

He was arrested on Cannaries Tenriffe island in December  2005.
We all forgive here. But we will not forget.
And sadly it wasnt just Dubrovnik. I could gave a list of dozens cities.

From Zagreb to Sarajevo.When we are talking about Sarajevo. 1601 children killed by Serbian snipers or granate. Siege line was 57 km long. All toghether 11.451 victim. 30.000 Serbs with 100 Tanks and 1600 cannons tried to destroy one of most beatuiful cities in the world. And not for architecture (although I found it nice) because of people. That spirit of Sarajevo people was something. Serbs failed to breake that spirit. Im sad that Bosnians are now breaking that spirit with all corruption and missing jobs, broken industry etc.

Anyway on one day, 22.7.1995. Serbs fired 3.777 granates. Imagine. In whole siege more then 50.000 tones of projectiles hit the city.

I could post you youtube video of Merkale massacre but its too bloody and mods would deleted thread.

Search for Vukovar 1991.
Or for Srebrenica masscre.

Ante Gotovina is hero.


Thanks for your support. I drink with you.

I was going thru bosnian and serbian newspapers. While bosnians are welcoming tge release of the general (except the Abdic people, of course) the serbs are outraged. There are calls for war. But this aint gonna happen. I personaly whant to thank the General because Oluja directly shifted the war towards freeing not only Croatia but also BiH. Ante gave us wings, bigger and better then any energy drink could do.

Both. Thanks for concern.
What can I say. His first words after he slept in Zagreb and when he open doors, he said to journalists: "You are here so long...Come drink a coffe."
Even more better he would not ask money from International court.

"I do not want to waste energy on compensation, but this time I want to spent with my family"

I must say that Im glad that General bring message of peace. While his soldiers stand in front of him and say: "General, we are waiting for your command." He respond; "War is over, lets turn on future."

The problem with serbia after the war is that they are trying to put equal blame on all sides involved. They still can not come to terms that it was serbia who divided yugoslavia, who attacked slovenia, croatia, bosnia, kosovo. Serbian mytholigy plays still, unfortunately, a big part in their dayly life and new myths are added. Why? Noone cant explain.

Croats defeated them and ruind their plans for Great Serbia. And they didnt wnat to settle down so NATO bomb them.
There is a lot of politic and history involved.
Balkan was always turmoil area. And Serbs with their megalomaniac plans doesnt help at all.
Croats were historicly friends with Germans, Austrians, Vatican due 90% Chatolic citizens and in recent history with USA ,Ireland, Iceland etc...Bosnia. They in sense saw Viena as center of world.Ofcourse its not must thing. But now they see Bruxelles and Washington. Personally , economicly looking thats bad compating to out neighbours who are seek theic chance for stable market in diffrent lands such as Russia (BRIC) or Turkey (Next11).
Bosniaks are friendly with Turks, Croatia, Kosovo. They have economic connection with Iraq, Lybia , Arab lands and so on. They in a sense see Istanbul as center of world. Ofcourse its not must thing.
Serbs are friendly with as they call them Orthodox brothers. Russians, Belorussians, Greeks, Ukrainians. But Moscow is their center of world.Ofcourse its not must thing.
Serbs were also good with English, Dutch and French.

Its complicated to understand if you dont know history background. It goes from Ottoman empire, Balkan wars, WW 1 and WW2.


Point is that Serbs in ex Yugoslav wars were put under such propaganda which convinced them that they were doing right thing.
Its left over of pro Serbian/chetniks socialists or better communists, who can also be found in Croatia and Serbia.
That parallel power in my country for instance try to put War of indenpendence in mud. They constantly repeat same thing. Their propaganda is still on power.

"We must prosecute war crimes in Oluja." Guess what? We are glad that we will do it. In fact we do it. Lawyer Hodak for instance work on big cases which Croatian soldiers are on trial.
So saying that its send message that we dont prosecuate our crimes. Which is lie. We do. But they only say that-Oluja. When Croat hand was upper hand. And where by International war crime court in Hague theres 40 unsolved murders. Yup 40. Now lets take for instance Vukovar where we have 1000 civil victims. In Ovčara alone 250 citizens are killed.

Croatia goverment want to put on trial all crimes in war of independence not just in Oluja. From beging to end. Which pro Serbian Yugoslav followers doesnt want. Because that way picture is bright. That they were agressors. And not to mention Bosnia.

However I will stress out that we as contry dont have jurisdiction to call serbian citizens to investigate those 40 civil deaths which Huage and Carla del Ponte wanted to link to Gotovina. So how can we solve those crimes when witnes or them can be called to questioned about them. How can we investigate those crimes?
Now thats where International court step in. They have had and have jurisdiction. Yet they didnt questioned. Its again Caral Del Ponte mistake.


Croatia was victim of Serbian agression and Croatia press charges against Serbia for that. Im sure we will win.Croatia is constantly puting charges on individual crime.
Every normal common person know that they were agressors. And we as winners must constantly re checked our liberation war because of their mad propaganda.

Yet Carla Del Ponte fail to catch Serbs responsible for Vukovar.
But Im glad that over 100 Serbs who done war crimes are in jail who were all followers of mad man Milošević and his team.

The war is now over, our freedom was finally legally blessed, but times won’t stop being interesting.

The most intriguing details waiting to emerge are certainly the origin of “overuse of artillery” and “joint criminal enterprise” accusations, as well as huge geopolitical consequences these legal novelties were supposed to bring.
Theodor Meron, the judge who threw these away, literally saved the future of my country and my sanity too.

If liberating our country was proven to be a “joint criminal enterprise”, if extremely cautious use of artillery while doing so was proven as an “overuse”, then the whole Homeland war would be stained as criminal and Serbian aggressor would hold on to that legal perversion in their never ceasing desire to “unite three Serbias in one”. (“Three Serbias” would be territories in Croatia, Bosnia and mainland Serbia, “wherever one Serbian grave could be found” – I quote Greater Serbian ideologists that stand behind this whole hell on Earth.)

The “evacuation” of Serbs was ordered and organized by Serbia (namely Milošević and his ilk, both ideological and military) and carried out by Serbian paramilitary forces, supported by JA (former JNA, Jugoslavenska armija, in nature illegally seized inventory of former JNA under Serbian command).
Documents that prove this with no shade of doubt – luckily – still exist, few months ago I translated one in one of the threads here (general evacuation order signed by Mile Martić, leader of illegal Serbian paramilitary forces in Croatia).  

So, what possessed the prosecutor del Ponte to invent new crimes and judge Orie to accept them, not only as crimes existing in theory but also as proven crimes of the accused?
If Croats were savages and had orders to kill Serbian civilians during operation Oluja, it would be easy, genocide, therefore country made on genocide. If the artillery truly was overused, again, easy, country made on war crime. Greater Serbian ghouls would have legal ground to **** on our heads for another 100 years.  
But, god damn it, Croats failed and while some of our towns were totalled by Serbian artillery, our artillery kept our towns virtually intact.
Of course, you idiots, why would Croatian army shell the crap out of our own towns? We are home here, remember? Unlike those who pulverized my hometown. And Carla del Ponte wasn’t motivated to persecute them, though they did overuse the artillery. Particularly on hospitals.
Remember Serbian general Ratko Mladić? Currently on trial in Hague, but not for war crimes in Croatia. No. No overuse of artillery, no murdered civilians, no joint criminal enterprise. Like he never set his hoof on Croatian soil. His trial drags on and on, for war crimes in Bosnia, but as far as ICTY is concerned, nothing happened in Croatia. Is that interesting or what?

The war was fought against Serbian aggressor force in Croatia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
No battle was fought in Serbia, not a fart was released on or towards Serbia.
Is it possible to hide that fact under pile of sentences that aim to equalize the guilt? Sure. With some immoral effort, you can not only whitewash the aggressor, you can also turn him into victim. And install him back in power, to rule over fourth (!) Yugoslavia. Over my dead body.

I can’t wait to get to know who, how, when, for how much and so on. Who wanted to draw new map of Europe on skin of Croatian generals?
And how come that oh, so clever plan failed so unceremoniously?

Maybe the **** avalanche (that can be heard starting in current president of UN General Assembly office) will somehow be stopped, but to be honest, I think I deserve to see that show. Think of it as small compensation for months under overused Serbian artillery that I've inexplicably survived. I forgive them air raids and small arms, but I'll never, ever forgive the artillery.
