Kangaroo Court

The ruling is in: "Serbia has not committed genocide," said the UN International Court of Justice. The ruling absolves Serbia of any guilt in the slaughter of 200,000 Bosnians during the 1990s. The ICJ did, however, suggest that Serbia could have done more to report the Srebrenica massacre.

The UN demonstrated the same kind of moral courage when it stood by and watched the slaughter of Bosnia in the first place. But since the ICJ has determined that Serbia did not commit genocide, then the UN can not be responsible for allowing the genocide to occur.

The ruling means little to the dead. But the outrage is more than enough for the living. Next on the docket? Indicting Condoleezza Rice for war crimes.
