    Responsibility lay in a range of areas including the chain of command which refused the air strikes called for, the Dutch letting the Serbs kill all the innocents and the members of the security council that apparently was in full knowledge of events on the ground.

    Anyhow - the UN produced a report written by David Harland which clearly lay a lot of the blame directly at its own feet (the UNs)
    I was 7 when that aired.
    But i bet i can find something on the netz. I'll check it out mate!

    Re: Are the Dutch responsible for the Sebrenica massacre?

    It depends on exposure to the characteristics doesn't it? Having spent quite a few summers in Eastern Europe the last 10 years I am confident in spotting the Slavs in a group of Caucasian faces: having lived in Kenya (born there) and in Nigeria I am quite confident in telling the different types of Nigerian (there are at least 6 different "types") to types of Kenyan.
    I can spot a slav a mile away but then again im from London and we are all raised around Polish people and other Easteners. And wow, quiet the traveller you are. How weird all the countries i mentioned you have lived there at some point.

    Ok biggest question is however, can you tell the difference between a German bloke and an Englishman? How about an Irishman to a Frenchmen, or a Scottishmen to a Swede?

    Anyhow - from his report "Through error, misjudgment and an inability to recognise the scope of the evil confronting us, we failed to do our part to save the the people of Srebrenica from the Serb campaign of mass murder."

    Just remember, the UN is not just the organisation with headquarters in New York / Geneva, the Security Council (and member states) had a big hand in the failings of the UN to protect the peoples from that massacre.

    I suppose I could be classified by some as being a 'white person', certainly the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet seem to be of a lighter shade.
    But I defy any of you to tell me where I am from simply by looking at me.

    That might be, but they are not responsible for the massacre.. the Serbs are and we should not forget that.

    The Muslims brought it upon themselves. The Serbs were exacting revenge for Muslim atrocities during WW2.

    What a horrible thing to say and how dispecable of you that you should try and justify a genocide.

    I knew you was a racist fool from your other post (where you claimed Islam was indifferent to Nazism). Your view isn't even based on a genuine belief but mere hatred for the religious group in question.

    Your disgusting.
