Srebenica Massacre 14 years on...
The massacre at Srebenica was a disgrace to the Western world because had there been a more timely intervention in the Bosnian war by outside forces maybe it would not have happened. lives on all sides would have been saved. I think of all the people who died such cruel deaths and their families pretty regularly. I did before I ever went to Bosnia or knew part of my family was of Bosnian origins. I felt strongly enough that it was the first intervention by my country in my lifetime that I SUPPORTED whole heartedly. Incidentally thank you from the bottom of my heart to any service members who served in Bosnia and tried to help!
There are some things Britain does to this day way better than it's done in the U.S. though, there is a bit more accomadation towards people who differ religiously from the mainstream of British society. It's worked in better thand it is here. I think that helps considerabley.
