Of course I was not a looter, the CNN camera makes all rebels into looters by definition. But my historical battle was that of yet another Balkan looting raid, against one's own parents and history. Not one Balkan war was ever won with clean hands.

Russian Oligarch's Balkan-Style Gambit in Ukraine

When Serbia found that Milosevic was an impediment to its campaign to regain world respect, it sent the architect of genocidal crimes to The Hague. Russia's elite may decide the same about Putin -- especially after the ghastly circumstances surrounding the destruction of MH17 -- and dump him as a liability... if they can.

Blame it on Rio, or Sarajevo?

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

War more likely in the Balkans or sex in Brazil, turned into an unexpected UN Security Council debate. Is promiscuity for conflict, sex or soccer something embedded in our genes, culture or environment? Some stereotypes perhaps are better, or more accurately less harmful, but in the end they become a hurdle.

To what degree could Putin, or those acting upon his direction, be encouraged to consider the rule of law in their actions in Crimea and beyond and no longer be confident in their impunity?

Crimea Must Not Be Ukraine's Sudetenland

Vladimir Putin's claims that "Russian speakers" are being mistreated are ridiculous. Nearly everyone in the Ukraine not only speaks Russian, but uses it as the main language in their daily lives. Da...even in Kiev.

The End of Dayton? With Bosnia on Fire, What Comes Next

Change is never easy, but in Bosnia, it often comes at a bloody cost. Let us hope that a hundred years after the start of WWI, leaders on both sides of the Atlantic step in, to ensure the fires of Bosnia spark reforms, not new confrontations.

Bosnia's Alamo -- Srebrenica?

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 09.01.2013 | World
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

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.

Lady Thatcher invited me to her home as the Special Envoy as well as BiH UN Ambassador. The home, conversation, and the tea served was what one would expect: neat, direct, and English.

"Old Country" Bonds: Chicago and the Future of the Atlantic Alliance

Despite the fact that NATO might be "the most successful military alliance the world has ever seen," our transatlantic bonds go far beyond combined military operations. They are interwoven into the very fabric of our society.

The latest reports from NATO sure do read a lot like reports on the NATO raids on Belgrade in 1999, when NATO planes hit infrastructure targets, ending the war in Kosovo and ultimately forcing Serbian President Milosevic to relinquish power.

The Long Arm of Justice

As Radovan Karadzic sits between two UN prison guards in an international tribunal, one must wonder, is the end of impunity finally coming to a close?

The Non-Bush Doctrine: Still Waiting for Obama's

That the Obama Doctrine and the foreign policy that the president has been pursuing are closer in terms of substance and approach to those advanced by Bush I and Clinton may sound like very good news.
