Serbia Apologizies for Heterosexual + Homosexual Soldiers Not Doing Enough to Prevent Massacre

By no means is it a vindication for American Gen. John Sheehan’s remarks, but last night Serbia’s Parliament “narrowly” passed a resolution apologizing for not safeguarding the 7,000 Bosnian Muslims that were killed in 1995 at Srebrenica, at the hands of the Bosnian Serb army. They’re offering “condolences and an apology to the families of the victims because not everything was done to prevent the tragedy.” Namely, banning gay soldiers, AMIRIGHT?

      The apology did not mention that what happened in Srebrenicia was a genocide. There bare 250 memebers of parliament in Serbia. 173 voted and only 127 voted in favour of the apology. Serb Nationalists wanted any apology to include condemnation crimes commited by Bosniaks and Croats during the war. The condemnation is certainly progress considering the fact that there have been years of denial in Serbia that the Srebrenicia massacre even happened and many Serbs probably don’t want to think that Bosnian Serbs and Serb militiamen did what they did.
