So 32 more years, for a 70 year old criminal.
Took long enough. I'm assuming there isn't parole for good behavior for war criminals.

Noticed war criminals always come from the losing side.

I have noticed that Zargon. Funny how that happens.
Wasn't the guys he was convicted of killing the ones the US was helping in the mid-90's and then they were found to have gone to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill US soldiers that helped them earlier?
Huh, funny that too.

The US helped both sides at different points during the conflict. Having been involved at the time, none of the various factions were up for the "Shining Bastion of Ethics" award. Karadzic was probably the most active of the centralized figures who managed and enabled war crimes at a large scale. The rest of the atrocities were what we would now call crowd sourced.

Bosnia: Happened 20 years ago. He's been in custody for 8 years. Gets 32 years in prison for mass killings.
Nuremberg: Trial held within two years of end of war. Those found guilty of mass killing executed with a year.
I can't help but feel things have changed for the worse. This has zero deternce effect on the next would be Hitler.
