Yes, her words are sounding increasingly hollow these days.

I can already see the articles now - about her tenure as chief prosecutor...

One other thing as a potential interesting related topic.

There is increasing talk in European circles that they will drop Mladic as an issue for further Serbian EU integration.

They are using the mindless logic that Serbia can only take one huge defeat to national pride at a time.

If Serbia drops or at least isnt as vehement in its opposition to Kosovo indepdence then Mladic will be allowed to enjoy the twilight of his life... Ahhh how sweet.

I'd make the reverse deal though. 'There you go, heres Mladic' now lets make a fair compromise on Kosovo.

You can always trust the unprincipled to win through in the end...

I have a feeling she'll be publishing a very interesting memoir in the next year or so. I know I'll want to read it.

bganon, I think that if Serbia were governed by sensible people that is what would happen.
