From the massacre of all its defenders, "Remember the Alamo" became the call to victory. Executing all the defenders of Srebrenica and expelling all its Bosniak residents was the tactic that was intended to also wipe away all of Bosnia & Herzegovina.
I found the Times' piece on Radovan Karadzic very disturbing -- not because it addressed his crimes, but because it chose to focus on an identity he assumed while he was living underground in Belgrade.
While we can hope that less calculated motivators were at work, this arrest of Radovan Karadzic brings an important opportunity. The Serbian region can reorient itself toward the future rather than the past.
