Self-delusion from the Left.
With his untimely death, former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic may have evaded judgment and thumbed his nose at the hundreds of thousands of victims of his alleged war crimes, but he's not thought to have escaped responsibility nor permanently impaired the cause of international justice.
After a five year trial that humiliated the court, I would say he did a lot to discredit "international justice. Not nearly as much damage as the International Court did to itself though. And as for that upcoming case against 8 Serbs for the massacre at Srebrenica, how come it was "the only instance of proven genocide in the Yugoslav wars"?

Hearing the leftwing media, there was a genocide every day. Hundreds of thousands were killed. But like the tens of thousands killed in East Timor, the reality was that he numbers just didn't add up. Less than 1,000 died in East Timor, and the numbers in Serbia are also suspect. Unlike a real genocide in Rwanda.
